Attend an April 15 Tea Party near you

Posted by: Randy Thomasson in SaveCalifornia.com on

A terrible thing has happened in California. The "kings" have declared war on their own people. As a result, hard-working families are having an average of $1,100 more taken from them. Our hard-hearted rulers have decided that their bloated and highly wasteful appetite "must" be fed like never before by you, your children and your grandchildren.

As of April 1, 2009, Californians are suffering under:

> A full percentage point increase in the sales tax (it's now around 9% in most parts of California)
> A .25% increase in your state income tax
> A massive decrease in your state dependent tax credit (slashed from $309 down to $99, costing you $210 per child)

How to escape and protest higher taxes

Posted by: Randy Thomasson in Untagged  on

Brace yourself. California's foolish government decreed Wednesday, April 1 as the day when the statewide sales tax will increase a full 1.00%. I suggest that if you have to make a big purchase, buy it now to save a full percentage point. Then join the tax revolution that's brewing all over the nation.

When you wake up Wednesday morning, the total sales tax will be around 9.00% for most Californians, and even higher in some already high-tax areas: 9.25% in Los Angeles County; 9.50% in San Francisco; and 9.75% in places like Alameda County, Pinole, Richmond and National City. The highest sales tax in the state is likely to be in South Gate in L.A. County -- 10.25%.

Again, who is doing this to working families? Seventy-five out of 75 Democrat state legislators, 6 out of 44 Republican legislators and 1 liberal Republican Governor named Arnold Schwarzenegger.

What to do about the California tax increase

Posted by: Adminstrator 1 in MyBlog on

Thanks to all 75 Democrat state legislators and 6 Republican legislators, California's higher income tax is already in effect. So is the two-thirds reduction in the child tax credit. On April 1, the state sales tax will be jacked up a full 1 percent. On May 19, the same day Californians can limit taxes by voting no on Prop. 1A, the car tax goes up massively.

You're invited to listen to Randy Thomasson's latest SaveCalifornia.com show with guest Lew Uhler of the National Tax Limitation Committee. This important podcast will give you deeper understanding of the financial war against hard-working families and will tell you what you can do to fight for what's right.

Plan now to rally against higher taxes and big government at an April 15 Tax Day Tea Party near you. Listen to this stimulating 23-min. radio show for your specific action steps.

Democrats in the Washington State Senate have passed a bill to award every single right of marriage to homosexuals. Democrat Governor Christine Gregoire says she will sign it if it reaches her desk. “I don't think they have the right to redefine marriage for all of us,” said Sen. Janea Holmquist, a Republican from Moses Lake.

The Washington bill copies the core of California’s counterfeit marriage law: 

Washington’s SB 5688 reads: 
“...for all purposes under state law, state registered domestic partners shall be treated the same as married spouses.”

California Family Code, Section 297.5, passed in 2003 as AB 205, stated:
“Registered domestic partners shall have the same rights, protections, and benefits, and shall be subject to the same responsibilities, obligations, and duties under law, whether they derive from statutes, administrative regulations, court rules, government policies, common law, or any other provisions or sources of law, as are granted to and imposed upon spouses.”

I remember how, during the 2003 Assembly floor debate, the last phrase “as are granted to and imposed upon married spouses" was edited to remove the word "married.” This enabled a few Democrat legislators to vote to pass AB 205 and then deceptively claimed it had nothing to do with marriage.

The marriage counterfeit is passing in Washington despite their 1998 marriage amendment which reserved the word “marriage” for a man and a woman. The same thing happened in Oregon after a 2004 constitutional amendment passed there to preserve the word “marriage.” Quickly, the Democrat-controlled legislature passed “civil unions” which mimic and have all the rights of marriage and are legally indistinguishable from real marriage.

In California, voters passed Proposition 22 in 2000 to protect the word “marriage” in the state’s statutes. But Prop. 22 neglected to include the “rights, benefits, and privileges” of marriage. So, within a few years, the Democrats in the Legislature systematically copied marriage and awarded all the rights and privileges of marriage to homosexual “domestic partners.”

Then, in 2004, Judge Richard Kramer of San Francisco ruled that since homosexuals were awarded marriage rights, it was illogical not to award them the marriage label as well. The Supreme Court agreed 4-3 in May 2008, but was quickly overruled in November 2008 by Proposition 8, a constitutional amendment.

Counterfeits always harm society, whether it’s lying or cheating, or a teenager pretending he loves a girl just so she’ll give him sex, or the stealing that banks and other businesses endure, or the false documents that are commonplace in the black market.

I am greatly concerned how counterfeit marriages in California and other states will teach children that there’s nothing special about marriage and that homosexual relationships deserve the same honor as marriage, just with a different name. The opposite is true. No relationship deserves the same right or status of marriage between a man and a woman because sameness is utterly different from oneness.

And He answered and said to them, “Have you not read that He who made them at the beginning ‘made them male and female,' and said, ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh'? So then, they are no longer two but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate.”  -- Jesus Christ in Matthew 19:4-6

"...we cannot deny that HIV is a gay disease. We have to own that and face up to that." -- Matt Foreman, former executive director of the National Gay & Lesbian Task Force

HIV/AIDS is a disease that is eventually debilitating and fatal. It is bad, not good. It is unacceptable, not acceptable. To say we are fighting against HIV/AIDS when we coddle or approve of the behavior that causes (transmits) HIV/AIDS is completely hypocrisy.

If we love people, we must point out the behavior that puts them at risk of acquiring HIV/AIDS.  True love and true care for children and adults will teach them to protect themselves from HIV/AIDS and other sexually-transmitted diseases. How? By learning and practicing sexual abstinence outside of man-woman marriage, and practicing monogamy and fidelity within man-woman marriage. This is the only "safe sex" there is!

I was shocked and gripped by the news that 3% of Washington DC residents are infected with HIV/AIDS. This is an epidemic level, even surpassing the atrocious rates in West Africa.

The federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports that homosexuality and bisexuality cause 85% of HIV infections in America (“high-risk heterosexual activity” is defined as non-homosexuals -- mostly women -- who had sexual intercourse with a “bisexual.”)

The California Office of AIDS reports homosexuality, bisexuality and transsexuality cause 83% of HIV infections in California.

In places that attack and demean sexual boundaries, the homosexual-bisexual-transsexual causation of HIV/AIDS transmission is even higher. In "free sex" San Francisco, 90% of HIV/AIDS cases are "men who have sex with men" (75%) and "men who have sex with men" who also use intravenous drugs (15%). The "free sex" philosophy is a lie, because there is a high cost to ignoring the natural and moral boundaries of sex.

California's Democrat-controlled Legislature is in denial of the behavior that transmits HIV/AIDS. Until 2005, California government refused to even report the incidence and transmission of HIV, leaving people in the dark.

HIV/AIDS is spreading among those who have bought the lie that they can't control their behavior. The estimated number of new infections occurring each year in CA is between 5,000 and 7,000.  The revised estimate of persons in CA HIV-infected but unaware, is between 27,369 and 33,513 as of the end of 2008.

Yet the politically-correct denial of the government, the media, the AIDS establishment and homosexual groups continues to unlovingly perpetuate disease and death. So do the the government schools, which, in junior high and high school, teach children that fornication is expected and that homosexuality, bisexuality and transsexuality are natural.

Take action to protect your children and grandchildren. Get a DVD from the National Physicians Center and give them the truth about sex. Teach them how moral sexual boundaries will protect them, and how sexual activity is good when reserved for marriage. If you don't teach children the truth, others are going to teach them destructive lies. 

And please don't give money to HIV/AIDS groups in your community. Unless shown otherwise, you've got to assume they're part of the HIV/AIDS establishment that perpetuates the problem by coddling bad sexual behavior that spreads this killer disease.
