Katy escapes during the Hungarian Revolution

Posted by

A neighbor, Katy, gives her account:

My grandparents spoke German at home. My grandfather was Polish, meeting my grandmother during WWI.  They lived happily until WWII.

When Hitler came into power, Hungarian Germans sided with Nazis.  All bridges were destroyed during WWII. In 1944, my mother was shopping with some friends. They wanted to go on the trolley but it was too crowded. Then the bridge was blown up. Everyone on the trolley died.  The Germans bombed the bridges to thwart the Russians, setting charges underneath.  But when the river froze it could be crossed. Read more »

Obama vs the Constitution

American Thinker provides a brief history of tyranny, and how our Constitution has provided over

“200 years of peace and stability across 3,000 miles of territory, with only one great breakdown, the American Civil War.  Protected by two great oceans and a constitutional balance of powers, millions of people born in the Old World were able to thrive in freedom — not perfect freedom, which does not exist, but far greater liberty than other major countries. “

A Young Woman’s Life in Venezuela

 There is a young woman in Venezuela who blogs about what is really happening inside Venezuela under Hugo Chavez’ dictatorship, The end of Venezuela as I know it. As you read her posts, you wonder, how could there be any Americans that support him or his government? How is it that our own President stood shoulder to shoulder with Chavez in demonizing Honduras when they followed their Constitution and kicked out a guy who was trying to become a Chavez-like dictator?

I am going to repost one of her posts in particular because it is a fair warning about the path down which many of those in power would like to take us. And, in light of Obama’s guaranteed push for Cap-and-Tax tonight in his speech, this is highly relevant. In this post, Julia writes about how miserable life is when the government gets to shut off your water and fines you for using too much electricity.

And if you think that can’t happen here, then answer this question: why does Fannie Mae, the mortgage company, own patents on cap-and-trade technology? Why has the Obama administration spent the last few months fighting Freedom of Information Requests aimed at Fannie Mae and their finances, considering they are a root cause of the housing crisis, and we are on the hook for billions of dollars to bail them out?
