Anti-Obama PAC to Hold Hudson Rally

The Campaign to Defeat Barack Obama PAC is launching five-week, 72-city tour, and it rolls into Hudson on Sunday.

The Campaign to Defeat Barack Obama PAC is launching five-week tour focused on getting people to come out and submit photographs of things they have built, and the tour is beginning in Wisconsin, according to a press released issued by the group.

The "Rebuild America, Defeat Obama" tour will kick off with a rally in Janesville on Saturday, and the group is scheduled to hold a Hudson rally from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Sunday. The location of the Hudson rally and speakers are still being determined.

The 72-city tour is part of a larger effort that also includes a TV ad campaign in key swing states and a telethon that's set to take place Tuesday. But in Hudson, the effort will be to get people out to the rally and to bring photographs of what they have built for the group to include in a billboard:

We are asking supporters to please bring a picture no larger than 3 1/2" x 5" showing what they've built (a small business, a home, a project, etc...).  We will collect these photographs at the rallies across the nation and then erect a billboard where the following words will be made up from all these photographs put together:  "Yes, We DID Build It!"

Hudson has been the site for several Tea Party rallies in the past, most notably on Aug. 3, 2011, just days before several Wisconsin Senate recall elections took place. More than 300 people filled Lakefront Park as the Tea Party Express bus visited town. More than 100 protesters turned out to disrupt that bus tour and rally by shouting and jeering throughout nearly a dozen presentations.

Ed, the fact I am focusing on is the fact that any acceptable budget has not reached the President's desk to be signed or vetoed. This was in response to Cynthia's TEA Party talking point that we have been "1100 days without a National Budget." I am sure that Obama will gladly signed a budget into law that meets his goals and objectives. Apparently, there current seems to be some distance between Obama's goals and objectives and those in the House and Senate. Besides, the country seems to be operating quiet nicely without a budget. We are still able to borrow money, pay our debts and support those 47-percenters sitting home talking on their Obama-cellphones and waxing their government-supplied Cadillacs with the ACORN bumper stickers on the back.

JB, SS was originally conceived as "not a tax", and people were supposed to get $$ out of it relative to what they put into it. There is already a means test for SS, but it is on the input side, not the output side. I think there are 2 current problems with SS; there are recipients that have been added to it that never paid into it (disabilities), and the ever-declining ratio of workers to recipients. Maybe the disability payments should have come from Medicare, but it was probably a mistake to take them from a so-called "sustaining fund". People saw the housing bubble rising during GWB's term in office, but it kept the economy going at such a high rate. Too many were scared to make the necessary changes to slow things down, since people tend to panic at the slightest bit of bad news. This was especially true after 9-11. As every teenager knows, if you don't pop a pimple manually, it will eventually grow larger and pop by itself.

JimBob said: "Obama will gladly signed a budget into law that meets his goals and objectives." "Besides, the country seems to be operating quiet nicely without a budget." Wow so much error in two sentences. The senate rejected Obama's own budget by 99-0. oops! http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/2chambers/post/senate-rejects-obama-budget-republican-alternatives/2012/05/16/gIQAUA3WUU_blog.html The fact remains that the only thing restraining even more profligate spending is a Republican controlled house. I would have preferred they didn't pass a continuing resolution and shut it down until they come to agreement. Do you really think we can go on indefinitely borrowing money from others to spend wantonly?
Cynthia September 27, 2012 at 03:25 PM
The results of Progressive Agendas... http://www.usdebtclock.org/
Jim Bob September 27, 2012 at 03:51 PM
Ed, evidently the Senate and House are unable to come to agreement on what the budget should be. I really don't see the issue here. This is how our checks-n-balance form of government works. Personally, the fact that no budget being passed in 1100 days hasn't impacted my life. I still have to mow the lawn, go to work, pet the dog, swear at the refs officiating the Packer game, etc. Life goes on... I have no doubt that our federal government will go on indefinately borrowing money. As to whether or not it is "to spend wantonly," is a matter of opinion. I actually don't know where Obama has been spending more wantonly that previous presidents like Bush and Reagan. Obama hasn't doubled or triple the national debt like those "fiscal conservatives." I suppose you mean "spend wantonly" to mean spending on anything that doesn't have to do with building up the military.
Jim Bob September 27, 2012 at 03:59 PM
Cynthia, obviously you don't overburden your brain with historical facts when it comes to the talking points you present here. Of course, our national debt is growing. It usually happens during economic hardtimes. Why just 11 years ago President Bush pushed throw historic tax cuts that would avoid our country running a surplus starting in 2010 and running into the mid-century. Why -- we were told -- we would be in danger of paying off the national debt if we didn't get these tax cuts. Meanwhile, Bush doubled the national debt. Perhaps Bush was following in Reagan's shadow. Remember when Reagan nearly tripled the national debt. Some results of the Progressive agenda include 8-hour work weeks, minimum wage laws, the end of chlid labor, improved and expanded education, the right for women to vote, anti-lynching laws, the ability for blacks to eat at the same lunch counter as whites, etc. I'm sure even TEA Partiers like yourself have benefited greatly from the Progressive agenda. Of course, Ayn Rand doesn't mention this in Atlas Shrugged.
Ed Larson September 27, 2012 at 04:01 PM
I get it now Jipbop, you want it both ways. Blame the Republicans for not passing a budget and then praise the checks and balances of a 3 branch government. Funny how you don't have a bad thing to say about Obama or the Dem Senate and that fool Harry Reid. If you are able to relatively simple math even you must realize you cannot continue to borrow forever and eventually you are unable to service the debt. That Obama has managed to add 50% to the debt in less than 4 years since taking office never seems to bother Democrats but then they never have lived in Realityville.
Jim Bob September 27, 2012 at 05:17 PM
Eddie, I'm not talking about how the Republicans or Democrats operate. I'm talking about how the American government operates. The budget starts in the House and moves to the Senate, if it passes the House. The Senate works it over adding layers of pork and other goodies targeted to help specific donors. Once the Senate gets done, it sends the budget back to the House for an additional round of porkification and then the Senate and House reconcile their special-interest orientated porkfest and forward it to the President for signing. Obviously, it doesn't make much difference where you plug in the words Democrat or Republican. Other than you TEA Partiers and Mtich "We Are Going To Make Obama A One Term" President McConnell, who thinks we are going to keep borowing at this rate forever? Duh, that wouldn't work. Our country has a history of running up the national debt during economic down turns. The trick is to reduce the borrowing and deficit during upturns like Clinton did at the end of his second term. So if Obama adds another 50% to the debt by the end of his second term, he will have doubled the debt like George W. Gee, we'll be calling Obama a fiscal conservative...like Reagan and W. We need Clinton back in office. Perhaps, when Hillary takes over the presidency from Obama in 2016, Bill can help her. I think Harry Reid is pretty goofy. I hope he doesn't ever mate with Michelle Bachmann. That would likely produce a Hairy Goofball.
yomammy September 27, 2012 at 05:19 PM
not an expert- there are a couple good things in obummer care, but a TON of bad stuff (for the average consumer). a trillion dollars to "cover" 1/10th the population....super deal. Always a good idea to punish those that had really good private care too- thanks dems!
yomammy September 27, 2012 at 05:22 PM
dont forget the 22" spinners on that caddy.
Cynthia September 27, 2012 at 05:24 PM
Obama extended the Bush tax rates, so they are now Obama's tax rates. Then Obama signed into law the "Tax Holiday" which cut our Social Security contributions by two percent for the last two years, now how is that going to help our future? Defunding Social Security does not seem like a plan that will Progress us into prosperity. Now lets look at Chicago and years of Community Organizing... Poverty rate at an all time high, Graduation rate at 60 percent. What is the real agenda of the Progressive? We can see by their results they need to keep certain people dependent on the government. What Ayn Rand does mention is what we see happening, you have the Elite and the Serf's, with the Middle class cut out of the Progressive agenda. Taking from the Bottom up only produces more poverty. Happens every time Progressives have had control in the world. Read history. Also remember the Republicans have not been called the party of NO for any other reason than to vote down the rabid spending bills of the Progressive Left.. The real problem is Saul Alinsky died before he could write a book teaching the radical left what to do once they gained power... the problem is NO TAX BASE, NO SERVICES. The Progressives have no idea on how to create a tax base, they just mandate the taking of our most valuable asset our cash.
yomammy September 27, 2012 at 05:24 PM
I am all for a (small) tax increase. IF THE FRIGGING GOVREMENT DOSENT WASTE IT!!!!
Cynthia September 27, 2012 at 05:33 PM
Jim Bob you also need to get a clue ... I believe George Bush , both of them are also Progressives. Progressive Lites they move slower than the Progressive Greedy Obama. Look at how the government grew under their watches. Look at how quiet they are as our future is spend into poverty.... Where exactly has the money gone? 1.3 Trillion dollars spent every year over what the tax base produces, for the last 3 years. It is the share the wealth with the world that hates us program for change?
Cynthia September 27, 2012 at 05:36 PM
Jim Bob... Another question why do we have to wait until 2016 for someone to be fiscally responsible? Do you know like the rest of us, fiscally responsible is not in Obama's dictionary of Progressive agenda?
Ed Larson September 27, 2012 at 05:37 PM
Jiffybob said "Our country has a history of running up the national debt during economic down turns. The trick is to reduce the borrowing and deficit during upturns like Clinton did at the end of his second term. Where is Obama's plan for a real recovery and debt reductions. MIA that's where. After all he promised to cut the deficit in half in his first term. oops, he lied again.
Micheal Foley September 27, 2012 at 06:10 PM
Let's curb the name-calling and insults. Keep it civil in here, people. Attack the arguments, not the people making them.
Jim Bob September 27, 2012 at 07:12 PM
Ed, what do you mean "he lied?" How can you tell when a politician is lying? His lips are moving. It holds true for Republicans and Democrats alike.
Ed Larson September 27, 2012 at 07:14 PM
JIMBob, please post an Obama budget that cuts the deficit in half as he promised.
Jim Bob September 28, 2012 at 03:50 AM
Ed, on Feb. 23, 2009, Obama said "Today I'm pledging to cut the deficit we inherited by half by the end of my first term in office. Now, this will not be easy. It will require us to make difficult decisions and face challenges we've long neglected. But I refuse to leave our children with a debt that they cannot repay, and that means taking responsibility right now, in this administration, for getting our spending under control." Obviously, Obama was over optimistic about how quickly the economy would recovery and the reason we he target wasn't met is...""Well, we're not there because this recession turned out to be a lot deeper than any of us realized. Everybody who is out there back in 2009, if you look back at what their estimates were in terms of how many jobs had been lost, how bad the economy had contracted when I took office, everybody underestimated it. People thought that the economy contracted 3 percent. It turns out it contracted close to 9 percent. …" This was not a campaign promise made by Obama. It was a goal he hoped to achieve in his first four years in office. Looks like he didn't achieve that goal. He has achieved other important goals like putting an end to our involvement in the Iraq War, working to get us out of the Afghanistan War, getting major health care reform legislation enacted into law, etc. I would say to those upset about Obama's inability to get the deficit cut in half, vote for Romney. He definitely needs all the votes he can get.
Jim Bob September 28, 2012 at 04:15 AM
Cynthia, I'm glad you mentioned Saul Alinsky. After all, we the people are in the grip of the progressive mastermind utopians (like Alinsky). Don't forget U.N. Agenda 21 that is being executed in the US via the "Smart Growth Comp Plan." The Delphi technique is being used to ensure we submit to the masterminds plan. To learn more Google "Cloward Piven Strategy." I'm sure you know this, but it's important that others participating in the discussion are aware of it. Learn more about Agenda 21: http://fellowshipofminds.wordpress.com/2011/06/16/agenda-21-for-dummies/ Learn more about Cloward-Piven: http://floppingaces.net/2011/07/30/the-cloward-piven-strategy-saul-alinsky-and-their-influence-on-obama-reader-post/ You will need to eat when the Progressive masterminds take over. Here's a link to a food source that those of us who are wise to Agenda 21 will need to survive: http://www.food.com/recipe/the-worlds-best-fruitcake-124172 For the record, I did go see the movie 2016: Obama's America. That was the second time in my life when I was the only one in the theater for a movie. The other show was "Mr. Bean."
Jim Bob September 28, 2012 at 04:19 AM
Mike, can you do a story on Agenda 21? Some of the local TEA Partiers have brought this up local government meetings. They are very concerned about county officials coming on to their property to making sure they are sorting their recyclables correctly. Evidently there is talk that black helicopters will randomly land on people's property, enter their homes and check the icebox for adequate amounts of broccoli. But seriously, talk to a lady named Annette who heads the conceal- and-carry cheerleading locally. She can fill you in.
Jim Bob September 28, 2012 at 04:23 AM
Ed, when did you start identifying with the TEA Party? The TEA Party pretty erupted like the day after Obama took office. They started complaining about debt and deficit. They rallies started in Feb. 2009. How about Cynthia? When did you start identifying with the TEA Party?
Jim Bob September 28, 2012 at 04:28 AM
Yommammy...what happened to the spinner fad? I couple years ago the local tire place had a set on display. I asked the guy behind the counter how many of those they sold and he said none. He said the owner put a demo pair on his car for a couple weeks and removed them because of the grief he got. I told him they reminded me of teats on a boar.
Ed Larson September 28, 2012 at 01:03 PM
Pledge  verb 1. a solemn promise Jimbob, as an Obama apologist I guess you get to make up your own meanings of words. Maybe you would also like to explain why Obama ignored his own Simpson Boles commission of deficit reduction. I'm sure you have some lame excuse for that too.
Ed Larson September 28, 2012 at 01:06 PM
Jimbob, I was a fiscal conservative long before the TEA party was born. Taxed Enough Already
Cynthia September 28, 2012 at 02:27 PM
Yep research is important. You all have the internet at your finger tips. Many different views support the results of the governments actions. We can all see what is happening if you choose to take off the Rose Colored Binders that keep us from seeing the fact, that the government can not take care of you. It can enslave you to a rabid spending plan for change, but it will never take care of your needs. The collective is bankrupt. It is a poor time to start the Share the Wealth program for Change when the collective is bankrupt. No more cash left because the plan was already implemented and has failed. Our 16 TRILLION dollar debt is the proof if that point. That is the really problem with the Progressive Nationalist Plan is they need the blind to keep on hoping that somehow if we take more taxes and keep on borrowing and spending all will be well. Not going to happen. Would not happen in your personal households and will not work with our federal household either. Connect your brain filters, do your research, think hard, disconnect from your government nanny and figure out how you are going to survive economic winter. There is a blizzard of despair coming with the Change of Hopeless Plans that is bankrupting America.
Jim Bob September 30, 2012 at 04:04 AM
Cynthia, I never said the government would take care of me and I don't expect the government to take care of me. Your so-called "share the wealth campaign" is a Wall Street talking point lapped up by the Levin-Hannity-Limbaugh lackeys who somehow think that Mitt Romney should only pay 13.9 percent in federal taxes while his running mate Paul Ryan pays 20 percent. If requiring Romney to pay the same federal tax rate as Ryan is a share the wealth plan, I am all for it. Exactly what is the "collective" you speak of? I know many households with a bigger debt load than the federal government. This is not a phenomena that happen under the Obama presidency. It's not something out of ordinary or related to recessionary times. Most of the people I have known over the years have $150K+ houses with annual incomes around $50K. In addition to their mortgage payments they have car payments, credit card payment and college loan payments. Pretty much the only people I hear screaming about America going bankrupt of TEA Party followers who have never had a class in economics or accounting and have to have their wife balance the checkbook.
Jim Bob September 30, 2012 at 04:05 AM
Ed, perhaps Obama ignored the Simpson-Boloes commission is because Paul Ryan voted against it?
Ed Larson September 30, 2012 at 12:02 PM
Jimbob said" "Ed, perhaps Obama ignored the Simpson-Boloes commission is because Paul Ryan voted against it?" That's all you got? How sad. Maybe you should look up why Ryan voted against it. After doing so try to answer the question again.
Cynthia September 30, 2012 at 11:24 PM
