A rare breed, a true Native Floridian, whose family has lived out in more rural parts of the state for many generations and continues to do so. Known to be very self-sufficient by growing or hunting their own food and building their own homes. Not at all like what most people nowadays picture as a Floridian. A Florida Cracker is a true Southerner.

31 May 09 When we compete in big gov

People love big gov because it is a safe refuge for thoses that cannot do for themselves.

When thoses of us that can do for ourselves are forced into big gov the results will be those that like socialism now will hate it when they are at the bottom

This natural thing is why conservatives don’t want into the big gov thing the left is pushing

It will not be “atlas shrugged” as those now out of gov will not enter it at the bottom.

Be careful of the big gov you love

AN OPEN LETTER TO PRESIDENT OBAMA

Dear President Obama:

You are the thirteenth President under whom I have lived and unlike any of the others, you truly scare me.

You scare me because after months of exposure, I know nothing about you.

You scare me because I do not know how you paid for your expensive Ivy League education and your upscale lifestyle and housing with no visible signs of support.

You scare me because you did not spend the formative years of youth growing up in America and culturally you are not an American.

You scare me because you have never run a company or met a payroll.

You scare me because you have never had military experience, thus don’t understand it at its core..

You scare me because you lack humility and ‘class’, always blaming others.

You scare me because for over half your life you have aligned yourself with radical extremists who hate America and you refuse to publicly denounce these radicals who wish to see America fail.

You scare me because you are a cheerleader for the ‘blame America’ crowd and deliver this message abroad.

You scare me because you want to change America to a European style country where the government sector dominates instead of the private sector.

You scare me because you want to replace our health care system with a government controlled one.

You scare me because you prefer ‘wind mills’ to responsibly capitalizing on our own vast oil, coal and shale reserves.

You scare me because you want to kill the American capitalist goose that lays the golden egg which provides the highest standard of living in the world.

You scare me because you have begun to use ‘extortion’ tactics against certain banks and corporations.

You scare me because your own political party shrinks from challenging you on your wild and irresponsible spending proposals.

You scare me because you will not openly listen to or even consider opposing points of view from intelligent people.

You scare me because you falsely believe that you are both omnipotent and omniscient.

You scare me because the media gives you a free pass on everything you do.

You scare me because you demonize and want to silence the Limbaughs, Hannitys, O’Relllys and Becks who offer opposing, conservative points of view.

You scare me because you prefer controlling over governing.

Finally, you scare me because if you serve a second term I will probably not feel safe in writing a similar letter in 8 years.

Lou Pritchett

08 May 09 Is the cracker Prolife or ProChoice

Someone asked me "Are you prolife or prochoice"

Difficult question.. Easy answer..

1 of 10 Commandments : shall not kill– pretty simple pretty clear

My issue.. should the FEDERAL governement be writing laws or even "Row v Wade" ing away STATES rights?  NO

My PREFERENCE.  Get it OUT of POLITICS get it INTO HEARTS and MEDICAL decissions.

What <allows> abortion?  GOV protects Drs from GOD and their HEARTS

Every woman that ever had an abortion, regrets it at some point.. They can’t CALL a LAWYER — Dr is protected

Are the states allowed to "prochoice" or "prolife"  — yes and IF the states were able to decide.  I’m confident the competition between states setup by the Founding Fathers would end up following GOD more than DEMOCRATS

Its really an issue of responsibility — and a Dr’s not going to ABORT because he knows the mom has been already irresponsible

Please dont bother to tell me that the abortion keeps the baby from being abused.  I have a great solution for that.  It might be stoning.. it might be a little LESS harsh.

06 May 09 Why we have 3 kids, not 4.

Sometimes I remember why we stopped at 3 kids and didnt have a 4th like my wife wanted.

It was STAR TREK…

It was an episode where a computer generated woman could be created that says "I come for you Kirk" and if she touched him and Kirk only Kirk, would die… they of course only figured this out before the "red shirts of the week" all died out… and the OTHERS protected whoever she said she’d come for.

The computer (that was protecting the dead planet– where the people had left eons ago) realized if it got them into this particular room it could create multiple copies and "change the balance of power".

They got tricked into this room and more of them appeared. Spock, Bones and Kirk defended each other as more and more appeared.. Til Spock said "Captain, if one more appears we cannot protect each other."

The story doesn’t end but my lesson did.. My wife wanted 4 kids.. I said.. to separate 4 kids we need 3 adults, she wasn’t willing to agree to a 2nd wife and who would want a 2nd lazy husband… so we stopped at 3

03 May 09 Just 50 taxpayers? The right way

We are a set of United States.. we should fund our Federal Governement THAT way.

I never understood why the people agreed to an INCOME tax. Perhaps it was the FIRST example of liberalism and progressivsm and incrementalism they saw and didnt realize. Perhaps all those ism’s appeared AFTER the “tax ammendment”

Here is my suggestion.

The states would pay the federal governement their dues. In turn the states would collect the taxes anyway they saw fit.

The Constitution says there is an income tax, but does not say the IRS should do it. Let the states do it.

Imagine a FED trying to tax say Iowa for money to pay for California’s school system?

The entire system would SELF-CORRECT around the Constitution.

No state would allow “spending” of their money in another state.

ONLY true FEDERAL spending would be allowed by the federal government

Isn’t that the right way?
