Slow Carb Diet
Sam is on a quest to drop his extra weight.
Three Months Later...274lbs
Sam started the slow carb diet on May 20, 2012. All the weight lost has been due soley to the diet. Now, he'll start doing daily workouts on a recumbent bike from Hest Fitness Products. We'll add a new photo a month from now (12/19/12) to see the added benefit of a daily workout.

Tyler Thorsen's fishing Report just after 6am.

is it surprising that the former head of the Internal Revenue Service doesn’t know anything about the Constitution?
In their internal documents, they say they can read anyone’s emails or place GPS tracking devices on anyone’s car, and that that’s not a violation of the Constitution.
They claim that people’s emails are not protected by the 4th Amendment, because “Internet users do not have a reasonable expectation of privacy in such communications.” That’s irrelevant. Snooping around people’s emails and other electronic communications without a warrant is a plain violation of the 4th Amendment.
This is former IRS chief Doug Shulman respond to Congressman Kerry Bentivolio, a Republican from Michigan, during their second IRS hearing:
Bentivolio: Did you study the Constitution?
Shulman: I went to law school.
Bentivolio: You went to law school. Did you study the Constitution?
Shulman: I believe I took Constitutional law, but I’m not prepared to take an exam at this time. [chuckles] Meaning I’ll answer any of your question but I can’t promise that I’m an expert.
Bentivolio: Well, you know the First, Second Amendment and one of my favorites, the 19th, right? You know those?
Shulman: Excuse me?
Bentivolio: You know those amendments. The Constitutional amendments. You know the First, you know the Second, and you know the 19th.
Shulman: I don’t necessarily have the Constitution memorized, sir.
Bentivolio: Okay, well, they’re pretty general in what each one is.
Like the First Amendment is the freedom of the press, freedom of religion, and freedom to petition the government for a redress of grievances. First Amendment, right?
Shulman: I really can’t recite the Constitution, sir.
(For some reason, Bentivolio brought up the 19th Amendment, women’s suffrage.
He didn’t have time to get to that point, but I think a larger point was made than he intended. How can the IRS be expected to follow the law, when they don’t even know what the most basic laws are? Come on, 1st Amendment, 2nd Amendment? Shulman was acting confused.)
When You get a letter from the IRS demanding documents to justify exemptions and income, you better comply by the date specified . . . or else.
This is what Congress wants to know.
1.Who authorized the harassment of conservative groups seeking non-profit status (specific names)?
2.When did the authorization to harass these groups begin (specific dates)?
3.Was there anybody outside the agency that knew about these irregularities and asked for the harassment to take place (e.g., the White House and/or DNC operatives)?
The deadline for the IRS to send the records was Tuesday, May 21. As of today, Friday, May 24, the IRS has not complied.
It’s not even news when Farrakhan spews anti-Semitic remarks, as he did yet again, referring to “Satanic Jews” and the Synagogue of Satan, during a speech at a Detroit church last week.
Whether it’s the Nation of Islam, or just regular Islam, Islam is about hate.
According to the Anti-Defamation League and the Detroit Free Press, those present at the May 17th Fellowship Chapel event included the church’s leader, Rev. Wendell Anthony, who also serves as President of the Detroit branch of the NAACP, Rep. John Conyers (D-Michigan) and Detroit City Councilwoman JoAnn Watson.

Obama Speech on Gitmo.
JFK Admired Hitler?
A handful of George Washington University political and history professors largely support the idea of adding President Barack Obama’s face to Mount Rushmore – just not quite yet.
According to a survey conducted by The College Fix, three out of the 10 George Washington University history and political science professors questioned via email replied it’s simply too soon for Obama’s likeness to be immortalized on Mount Rushmore National Memorial.
IN THE BOX...County Commissioner Mike Pusley and Brad Tindall..
Tip of the Hat to Hummell for the pictures.
Speaking of e-mail, this is from Daniel, in reference to Wednesday's "hateful" program.
I do listen to your show and while I used to enjoy it, it has become far less enjoyable due to what I feel is a constant hate-filled, sarcastic diatribe that conservatives seem to believe will "heal" the country.
It won't, Jim.
I voted for GWB twice, but due to Sean, Rush, the tea party and now you, I have decided to move my independent vote away from what I had hoped was the right party to run things.
It was nice while it lasted.
Good luck to you in the future.
Thanks and let me know how that healing works out.
By the way I'm not always hateful
and sarcastic , sometimes I'm asleep
See you on the high ground,

Again with the sarcasm and a feeble attempt to be "funny."
There's got to be a better way than ignorance (the left) and hate (the right.)
You have proved my point.
You are welcome, I'm sure.jl
A British soldier attacked, almost beheaded on the street. The BBC reported sources had told them the men were shouting "Allahu Akbar" as they carried out the attack and had filmed carrying it out.
One witness told LBC radio: "We saw clearly two knives, meat cleavers, they were big kitchen knives like you would use in a butcher’s, they were hacking at this poor guy, we thought they were trying to remove organs from him"

Subject: Star Spangled Banner for Memorial Day
You may be aware of the problems Madison Rising had with Facebook a couple of weeks back. Thousands of fan postings of our #1 best-selling Star Spangled Banner video suddenly disappeared. We still haven't gotten an explanation as to why.
It would be great to team up to make it viral again for Memorial Day: http://youtu.be/c8C7i9kdEf8
“Awesome,” “deeply moving,” “amazing,” “chilling,” and “the best ever,” are just some of the superlatives used to describe the band’s rendition of the song that celebrates what being an American is all about.

Madison Rising promotes the principles of liberty, independence, smaller government and personal responsibility. Their mission is not only to make great music, but to also send a message that American culture is alive and well.
