Obama’s message is not so new

April 2, 2010 · Filed Under National Politics · Comment 

The Bible says “there is nothing new under the sun” and that seems like an impossible statement. Most think that Obama has brought such sweeping new changes that will harm our great land and set us back 200 years. The truth is, he didn’t bring it, he didn’t invent it, he only implemented it and is in the process of bringing it about like this country has never seen before. But his success with our destruction is also not new, one only needs to look back at Germany under Hitler to see a countries demise under such a leader. We have examples in the present day too of leaders who racked and ruined their people and brought progress to a screeching halt. Cuba and Venezuela are two such countries that are mired in poverty and stagnant distress all because their dictator chose to be imperialistic and promote socialism which was only the first step to the ultimate goal of communism or fascism.

Barrack Hussein Obama used Twitter and Facebook as well as other savvy social media techniques to get his veiled messages out to the masses but again, that is nothing new. Looking back all the way to the 1930′s it’s easy to see that this utopia socialistic banter was being pushed at the behest of the leadership of the day using famous people on the big screen. In a time when movies were all the rage and people flocked to Sunday matinees the far left took full advantage and major socialistic policies and programs were easily put through. Jobs were scarce then too, money was tight and so the green light was given to push for this evil agenda and to push hard. Sound familiar? This is exactly what the hate filled, fear mongering left winged politicians are doing today.

It took awhile for the programs such as social security to undermine this country, to long for the Democrats, this time they’ll speed things up 100 fold and ensure the destruction of our freedoms by totally burying us in debt and wiping out the private sector.

Obama did bring us change, there is nothing new about that, let’s just HOPE we can affect our own in the next election cycle.

Obama loses again

March 21, 2010 · Filed Under National Politics · Comment 

Let’s see, the Olympic bid for Chicago, climate change agreement in Copenhagen, winter Olympic hockey game BET and last years NCAA bracket was a dog and now this year Obamas pick to win it all goes down in defeat. It also seems that no matter who he endorses or flies into town to campaign for loses too. Everything this president touches goes to hell in a hand basket. I’m sure I left some things out but this guys record in less than a year is dismal and his approval rating is right there with it. Oh he did win one thing, the Nobel Peace prize was given to him BEFORE he even did anything to earn it which also came with a million dollar plus check which he was reported as saying he’d give to charity. Does anybody know which charity or did he give it at all? I may have missed it but I’d think with this lap dog sycophant media vaunting the very ground he walks on would have had a one hour special on CNN had he donated the money. Since they’ve been silent, I’ll take that to mean it’s sitting in a nice account somewhere or with a buddy who is investing it and it will magically be 12 or 15 million at the end of his one and only term. How nice.

We can’t afford a losing hand in America right now but it seems that this is all we’ve been getting. This president is too wrapped up in his beer and his sports to pay even the minimum amount of attention to the real issues that face us all. What a difference just one man makes, I guess he was right about one thing, I believe we’re changing.

I miss W.

Shock and Aw

February 6, 2010 · Filed Under National Politics · Comment 

Do you remember how in the Bush administration we were always told how bad unemployment was gonna be? It never was. Or how bad the numbers would be on such and such a day when the reports came out and they never were? The next day after the numbers were released the headlines always said,”Numbers surprisingly above experts predictions.”

picture 3 300x274 Shock and AwThis was all part of the mass coordinated efforts to demean and neutralize one of the nations greatest leaders and to some degree it worked. The media did manage to keep such a steady and loud negative drum beat in the face of the average WORKING citizens and criticized Bush on so many fronts that his poll numbers went very low. Who could blame the people for responding to pollsters this way after being fed a non stop diet of negativity. That never stopped George Bush however, with true leadership and tax cuts he managed to get out of the way of capitalism and the U.S.A had 52 straight months of growth and set all time highs for the most millionaires being created during this time. The media couldn’t deny these things and they waited breathlessly for the next report hoping it would finally give them some real ammo that they wouldn’t have to make up or distort, they were ‘shocked’ with each positive and resorted to ‘Aw’ we’ll get him the next time.

Fast forward to today. The hacks are still in shock but now it’s because all of their predictions have come around and smacked em dead in the face but it’s not by the hands of their hated enemy George Bush. This economy and the downward spiral is at the feet of President Obama and they are scrambling to deflect anything they can away from their anointed leader. Now when reports come out and the news is bad (it has been since Jan 20th 2009) they say things like “oh there’s growth in jobs” even though the numbers DON’T say this and they spin the negative into something rosy using the opposite logic they had to demonize Bush.

The American people aren’t buying this and it’s showing in the polls even without the steady drum beat of Obama sucks in the media, his popularity is waning. Frustrated they have resorted to what they know best, blame Bush. It’s shameful and not at all what the free media is suppose to do but they engage in it without remorse and don’t care much to hide it anymore. Now when the reports come out I’m sure they are still breathless but when they see another goose egg laid by this administration the response is the same word just a different meaning. AW not again.

The Audacity of H.R.3200

January 29, 2010 · Filed Under National Politics · Comment 

This comes from a 1 Nation under 1 God 3in1 youtube library and except for the presenters name I find the information very clear and concise. In light of President Obama’s State of the Union Address where he urged us to reconsider the health care debate I thought this would be a good place to do just that.

If after viewing this information you still think that this plan is right for America, thank a Vet. It is because brave men and women who’s blood was shed here and abroad that you and I can voice our opinion in this free land of ours. If you, like now 75% of America think this is the wrong way to go thank God for the incompetence and self absorbed bumbling of our political leaders who are too worried about their political futures to do anything that the polls don’t agree with. And all of America can thank YOU who have made your voices heard.

Laura Bush is all class

November 25, 2009 · Filed Under National Politics · Comment 

picture 4 300x196 Laura Bush is all classRecently I had the privilege of attending a “Get Motivated” seminar in Orlando Florida. The speakers were none other than Zig Ziglar, Rudy Gulianni, Terry Bradshaw, Colin Powell and Laura Bush just to name a few. The enthusiastic crowd was all cheers for these people and the information and stories were great.

Principles of life were brought up and actually applauded which for some reason surprised me. Things such as staying faithful to your spouse, believing in God and making no excuses if for some reason (of your own doing) you are a loser at this time in your life.

As I looked around the crowd I couldn’t help but think what will they do when Laura Bush is announced as the next speaker? Would they boo or just give a polite welcome? The way this crazy world has gone so gaga for Obama and his wife as if they would restore our country to the days of Camelot I wasn’t sure. It seems that the masses want to be ruled by a king these days and are satisfied with just being minions instead of freedom loving patriots who have spirit and a zest for life.

To my delight Mrs. Bush was announced and the entire convention center erupted in the loudest and longest standing ovation, more than even the Mayor of New york received. Camera’s flashed and popped from every angle and the excited mass welcomed in their First Lady in a way an adoring crowd would a queen. It was truly gratifying to know that other Americans felt for her what I have and I know she saw it too.

Her speech was not so much a motivational one as we had been treated to all day. She spoke of the horrific day of Sept. 11th of course but focussed more on the Sept.12th world. The day after the events that changed our world for not only then but forevermore. She described being ushered down into a basement bunker when it was reported that another plane had wandered too close to the White House and how she and her husband were thankful to be safe but wondered and prayed about the rest of the American people. She saw the change in her husband, our president George Bush. The man that up until that point was always quick with a joke and had a wit that would charm anyone. He had changed with the dawn of Sept. 12th, his mission and focus took a whole different direction with a determination that perhaps only she and a few others could see fully.

She spoke of the families of the fallen and how George Bush personally called each of them offering his love and prayers with thanksgiving for their service and sacrifice. She described the strength he needed to get through and how he leaned on his faith often. She heard the criticism at the time and she knew George did as well but her quote was;

“It bothered me, but it didn’t get to me.”

At this point there wasn’t very many dry eyes in the building and it was only at the mention of President Obamas name and how there was no applause that I realized there were no boos or cat calls with her explanations of President Bush and his actions during those times.

I began to wonder then and even now, is the tide turning and the hatred for our 43rd president beginning to melt away? Are people coming to the realization of the greatness this man achieved or is it something else? Could it be that our current leadership is so out of character of what America stands for and their power grab so far over reached that even the most ardent Obama supporter has come to the place where he can at least appreciate what George Bush did for this country?

That may be a difficult question to answer for now but you for sure won’t get the answer from Mrs. Bush. She simply stated her position and wasn’t campaigning for a thing. Like it or not, agree or disagree she saw it first hand and that was what she was there to tell you in her elegant and heart filled way. She offered up no criticism for Obama either but only wished him well in the office he now holds and encouraged us all to pray for them and for our great country. It’s no wonder she got another huge ovation as she thanked us and walked off the stage. America loves this grand First Lady, Laura Bush is all class.

Ol John Kerry had a plan-Ee i ee i oh!

October 27, 2009 · Filed Under National Politics · 1 Comment 

What ever happened to the “plan” Senator, then democratic nominee for president, John Kerry had for solving the great Iraqi crisis?

I know that as president there’s huge leverage that will be available to me, enormous cards to play, and I’m not going to play them in public. I’m not going to play them before I’m president.”

Well that was over 5 years ago and we haven’t heard this grandiose plan yet, he never did play one of his cards. Meanwhile American service men and women died in Iraq since then and it wasn’t until the surge which President Bush approved that Kerry was also against, that things turned around.

Here is Senator Kerry in February 2007:
Sen. John Kerry on Saturday blamed Republicans for squelching Senate debate on the Iraq war and warned that President Bush’s plan for more troops in Iraq is a mistake. …

“Another 21,000 troops sent into Iraq, with no visible end or strategy, ignores the best advice from our own generals and isn’t the best way to keep faith with the courage and commitment of our soldiers,” the Massachusetts Democrat said in his party’s weekly radio address.
Kerry branded Bush’s proposal for additional forces as “nothing more than the escalation of a misguided war.”

Don’t you love America Senator Kerry, do you not feel for those who give the ultimate sacrifice in service to their country and for those who are in harms way everyday while we enjoy the richness and fulness of our homeland? You sir who served in Viet Nam and saw combat and men die for what you later renounced as a misguided war as your medals hit the White House lawn.

Perhaps the answer is no because we have yet to hear of your famed plan and you never once acknowledged the success of the surge in Iraq that truly did bring a situation back from the brink of disaster. That decision sir came from a man whom you claimed you out classed and had such superior knowledge over. That man, President George W. Bush did what you never had the courage to do which was to put his political career in the rearview mirror because the safety of our troops, country men and the mission itself was more important.

Now that our current President wants to dither and waffle, the situation in Iraq and Afghanistan have deteriorated and here you are again with your condescending, self centered and opportunistic opinion.

“After eight years of neglecting Afghanistan as vice president, Dick Cheney has now come out of retirement to criticize President Obama for taking time to examine assumptions before sending troops into war,” Kerry said.

“Make no mistake,” he continued:

“Because of the gross mishandling of this war by past civilian leadership, there are no great options for its handling today.

Is there no shame? Is this full circle or have you gone over the edge? Your plan never existed for Iraq and you used the occasion for political gain which by the way, didn’t work. Now you pompously set off to a foreign land, our theatre of war and you return as if you’re some great savior and chastise a man who was on the right side of history as if he was some child. While Cheney had and has gravitates, you sir have your nerve.

picture 7 300x218  Ol John Kerry had a plan Ee i ee i oh!Stop blaming President Bush and his administration and tell your boss the same, it’s unbecoming of the offices you hold and shows you as bitter spoiled men who can’t stand the great unwashed and being disagreed with, especially when you’re wrong. Stand up and do what’s right for the American people, our troops and the betterment of our great land.

Headline; Bush 3rd term a Bust!

October 7, 2009 · Filed Under National Politics · 2 Comments 

picture 3 Headline; Bush 3rd term a Bust!After 8 years of prosperity, safety and a sense of direction, George Bush has finally fallen to the murky depths of failure, despair and uncertainty. While the first 96 months gave Americans tax breaks, growing 401K’s, a thriving business community, strong military and continued American pride, his last nine months have undone almost all of it.

With unemployment nearing double digits, trillion dollars deficits and the countries confidence shaken to the core the only sector so far in tact is our men and women in the armed forces. That too may change soon since direction and leadership from the top is sorely lacking.

The truth of the matter is President Bush did leave office back in January as scheduled but you would never know it listening to our current administration. Also true is that things were not left in the complete mess that they are in now. The government was not the proud owner of 2 car companies and numerous banks and our children’s children weren’t saddled with a debt so high that their first good years of earnings will go to finish paying off a bill they never created.

In a complete lack of class and dignity for the office President Obama has continually passed the blame for all of the countries woes on George W. Bush. Not only so but he also claims that without his own actions to undue the Bush bust we would be so much worse than we are today. How sad that a supposed leader of the free world would play such a childish game.

Bush never stooped so low as to blame Clinton when he easily could have and he still keeps with decorum by not trashing Obama and instead remains silent to give him the respect the office deserves. George Bush was and is a man of conviction and morals and never ran from his decisions or the ramifications that came with them. He didn’t shift the blame or come up with weak excuses how others caused problems or prevented results. Bush took the responsibilities of office and all that came with them on his first day; perhaps it’s time Obama took over his first term.

The Kevorkian party

October 1, 2009 · Filed Under National Politics · Comment 

Just who is spreading hate and lies? Is it the republican Joe Wilson for shouting “you lie” during President Obama’s speech to congress? Liberals are sure going out of their way to make sure the public heard about that one and while most agree that was not the time and place it pales in comparison to what liberal democrats are spewing. Wilson apologized soon after the remark but it was to late and is now branded a racist of all things and democrats have been trying to use the outburst to hang the same label on citizens who attend tea parties and town hall meetings.

Democrat Alan Grayson was elected partly because of his ‘shock’ value commercials holding up prosthetic limbs and claiming outrageous things. Apparently he’s decided that more of this behavior will serve him well. You watch the video and decide for yourself who it is that is supplying hatred in our country and causing division. If the m.o. of the left holds true they’ll use this to brand conservatives as the Kevorkian party and the biased media will eat it up.

Oh but I digress, good ol Alan did apologize, I guess things are all better now.

Isn’t there an election in 2010? Maybe we should keep this in mind.

The book of Bush quotes may be short

September 30, 2009 · Filed Under National Politics · Comment 

“Freedom is on the march in this world. I believe everybody in the Middle East desires to live in freedom. I believe women in the Middle East want to live in a free society. I believe mothers and fathers want to raise their children in a free and peaceful world. I believe all these things, because freedom is not America’s gift to the world, freedom is the almighty God’s gift to each man and woman in this world.”
Speech in Pennsylvania, October 22, 2004

What part of these words do we find arrogant and demonstrative? Yet for 8 years we were told that George Bush was the devil himself only interested in power and money for him and his oil buddies. I contend that had this quote been from any other leader from days gone by it would be engraved on tablets and on display for all to see. It is said that from the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks and if this true then freedom truly occupies a large portion of Presidents Bush’s and his words should inspire us all unto more worthy endeavors.

Perhaps it’s true that the book of quotes when finally printed will be a quick read but for those with eyes to see and ears to hear it will be like a lone ray of light that breaks through an otherwise dark and ominous cloud. People with foundations built on sand don’t want to hear about the sacrifice and hard work it takes to secure liberty. They really can’t make the hard choices but are oh so quick to criticize from the shadows of fear hoping to quell the light that will shine on their dark hearts. Misdeeds, greed and lust for anything other than God are repelled by light and for a man to speak in this way in our day and time cannot be tolerated. 8 years of hatred could not stop one mans strength and so the drum beat continues today and seemingly will not cease until every last ounce of the idea of freedom is beat out of us.

It might have been different had George Bush been our 5th president and his words could be neatly tucked away in a history book that we don’t allow our children to read. The tablet and monuments erected would make for tolerable photo op’s and allowing tourist to see how things were in the past would be acceptable but that is as far as it would go. His words would be as Lincoln’s, Adams or Washington in that we recite them from time to time but need not apply them in our new progressive and tolerant world.

But Bush took it one step further and committed the ultimate sin and for that he can never be cited for greatness. Talk of freedom became action and today millions of Iraqi men and women enjoy a freedom they have not had in generations. He spoke of God and openly prayed and invoked the Almighty for aid and blessing. He spoke directly and with conviction to despot leaders and yes raised the mighty arm of the United States military and we lived in safety and peace on our homeland because of his leadership. He spoke of compassion and millions of African children flourished when his words became action. He sent brave men and women to the front lines and stood behind them in prayer and when a fallen hero was brought home he made the call to offer comfort to their loved ones.

Strength can be measured in words but they are only tested by action and if the words remain when the fire is gone then they were true indeed. For his term the fire raged and his words were tried and found true. It may not be in my lifetime or yours but there will come a day when somewhere on the hallowed grounds of leaders gone by that a small but significant monument will be erected. A tourist will stop and pose for a picture holding in her hand a small but well read book opened up to a page for all to see.

“…The God I know is one that promotes peace and freedom. But I get great sustenance from my personal relationship. That doesn’t make me think I’m a better person than you are, by the way. Because one of the great admonitions in the Good Book is, don’t try to take a speck out of your eye if I’ve got a log in my own.”
