We have plenty of money to support our troops, the point is we have to put it in the right places. And we are not!
We can’t squander it by paying for Obama and Pelosi’s plane trips all over the world to boast their ego’s and to pay for their good times. Obama is going to try pulling another fast one on the American people. And we the American people stand by and watch him get away with the destruction of our great nation. When will we stand up and say enough already! When will you Obama cheerer’s wake up? Those who are still pro Obama can say that these aren’t lies, but merely promises he hasn’t been able to fulfill yet. I take a different view; when you make commitments and don’t keep them, intentionally or otherwise, you are simply not credible.
Why in the world would we need another stimulus when Obama told us that his first one was so successful!; what happened to all of those jobs it was supposed to yield? If it worked so well, why would you need another one? This administration is insane and insane with power, calling for a spending freeze while jacking up the debt another 2 trillion dollars and exempting medicare, social security, etc from those cuts; how about setting the example and take those leftover unspent stimulus dollars and the tarp funds and use them to pay down the national debt instead of creating yet another government entitlement program; now that would be a new idea that would actually work; of course, it won’t be done because blaming others is so much easier than accepting any blame; if obama really was serious about jobs, why does he not have people with successful business backgrounds on his advisory committees; this admin is CLUELESS or else how can you explain Obama continuing on bashing Capitalism and the Free Market and trashing Big Banks who are successful and who have paid back tarp with interest while exempting unions and special interest groups; Obama is the most anti-business and anti-american and anti-prosperity president we have ever had; he bashes wall street and the banks but fails to mention the corruption of Fannie and Freddie by Barney Frank, Chris Dodd, Franklin Raines, Maxine Waters, while accepting big bucks from these democrat slush fund derivatives; what a hypocrite! What a joke!! He IS the spending problem!! Trillions in profligate spending and unsustainable national debt which is not helping, but ruining, our economy. He talks about what he inherited (the immature “Blame Bush” mentality), but he has quadrupled Bush’s largest budget deficit in one year!! Can anyone imagine what would happen to a CEO in a private sector corporation who, in one year, put his company on the verge of bankruptcy….and just blamed it all on the previous CEO?? This type of CEO would’ve gotten the pink slip in less than a year!! Unfortunately for us, unless there are legal grounds and enough congressional votes to impeach, we’ll have to wait almost 3 more years to give BHO the pink slip!!
Being the daughter of a military Father and interacting with many of the deployed soldiers. This is the exact opposite of what they are saying. I believe you will find that the majority of men and women deployed overseas are of African – American descent. Most of the African-Americans I have spoken with about the elections have admitted that they voted for Obama because he is black. I believe that they just do not care what he stands for, or even know what he stands for. But they just want a black president. This is sad, I understand their need to identify, but to be so mis-informed of the facts and be willing to risk theirs and their children’s future, their religious freedoms and their financial freedoms for a president that is the same color as them.
Fifty-six percent of American Jews support military action against Iran to prevent the Teheran regime from obtaining nuclear weapons, a new study has claimed. Thirty-six percent opposed such a move, according to the American Jewish Committee’s 2009 Annual Survey of American Jewish Opinion.Sixty-six percent supported Israeli military action against the Iranian nuclear program, while twenty-eight percent were against.The survey, which polled 800 representative American Jews and was conducted by Synovate between August 30 and September 17, also dealt with US-Israeli relations, worries over anti-Semitism and identity, reports The Jerusalem Post.
Rahm Emanuel Obama’s chief of staff just about told Israel that U.S. is fed up with them.
We are all seeing the American dream slip away under the guise of hope and change and progressive thought. We have forgotten the values that our ancestors fought for, individual freedoms and liberty. When the Republicans were in power we didn’t’ act totally like Republicans. We spent, we borrowed, and we forgot, who we were and what we stood for. We cannot criticize the Democrats for spending and then turn around and load up on earmarks at the same time. We need to stick to our principals and back them up with deeds.
Americans want real people with real ideas who stand behind them. They want opportunity, freedom, competence and most of all they want to be able to trust what they are being told is the truth.
Republicans need to get back to the basics. We are a party who stands for freedom, opportunity, smaller, government. Republicans are the party of growth for all Americans, prosperity for all Americans, and opportunity for all Americans. It is not just about branding, it is about reality. It is about living our principals and sticking to them.
And as for the UN, the U.N. passes more resolutions against Israel than against all other countries. They accuse Israel of rights violations while not condemning similar—or worse—acts. These resolutions are continually brought by Arab countries who practice their own forms of apartheid and slavery. So why would I believe anything the U.N. says? American Jews are fed up with Obama and the way he pussy foots around Iran. The potential dangers a nuclear Iran would bring to the entire Middle East is frightening. .
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad announced Thursday that the Islamic republic has produced its first package of highly enriched uranium just two days after beginning the process. Mahmoud Ahmadinejad on Thursday told hundreds of thousands of cheering Iranians on the anniversary of the foundation of the Islamic republic that the country was now a “nuclear state.
No worries, Obama promised he wouldn’t allow Iran to go nuclear. He’s perfectly willing to have a Beer with him.
Before Obama, Israel would never move against Tehran without approval from Washington. But it’s different now, the Netanyahu government couldn’t care less about what Obama thinks or says..
I’ll say one thing for White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs: The creeps got chutzpah. Too bad he’s so dumb. Gibbs took a moment from his Tuesday press briefing to mock Sarah Palin for delivering a speech at last weekend’s Tea Party convention in Nashville — with notes (“Energy,” “Tax cuts,” etc.) scribbled on her hand. Gibbs stood at the podium and showed his press audience that he had jotted down “Eggs,” “Milk,” “Hope”
What a c heap 5th grade stunt. So much for the decorum of the Executive Branch. Not only was it a juvenile, but the guy giggled like a little girl at his own joke.
What a doofus! Well I guess, he doesn’t have too much to work with. If it weren’t for politics, the pinnacle of his career aspirations would be to manage a Burger King.
To add to the list of outrageous earmarks in Obama’s fiscal 2011 budget, ACORN, the embezzlement-prone, voter-registration-fraud-plagued, leftist community organizing group, is slated to receive nearly $4 billion from a taxpayer-funded slush fund. The money will come from the Community Development Block Grant, one of the Department of Housing and Urban Development’s longest-running programs.
Why hasn’t ACORN been investigated yet?
Just asking. Where is the media on this?
It’s not just Democrats who have much to learn from Brown’s victory. Republicans can also take a lesson from his campaign. If they wish to regain and retain the majority , they need to focus on that aspects of our platform which appeal to a broader segment of the population. They did that in 1994 by drawing up the Contract with America which included those core conservative concerns which most resonated with independent voters.
After a year Obama still has not yet figured out that his promiscuous talk of higher income, payroll, health care, and inheritance taxes, serial demonization of finance and business, and all sorts of new regulations, create a psychological climate in which the employer pulls in his horns and decides to ride things out — and this individual reaction is being repeated millions of times over, energized by the pique at everything trivial from Van Jones to apologies abroad to “Bush did it.”
He’s an abominable wreck who makes even a gaffe-riddled Biden look somewhat sane/respectable (impossible until BHO). It’s with little surprise his popularity is evaporating in the unimagined real world. His ideas and methods are hostile, his management incompetent and his alienation of the polity is nothing short of contemptuous. He must be voted out before he takes us all and our nation to hell in a hand-basket with him. Jimmah was bad for our country and he’s still a thorn, but Obama’s malevolence is proving limitless and in so many ways. The stock market was ready to take off now that Brown won, but Obama’s anti-business announcement of new banking regulations spoiled the moment. His timing was calculated to prevent a market increase .. It seems that he loves to put his foot into the recovery, don’t he!
Keep challenging Obama’s policies and proposals, item by item. Sniff them out. Most will be overtly or covertly collectivist and statist. Support them only if they pass the sniff test. “Give them nothing. Take from them everything.” With a bit of luck we can make Obama a lame duck halfway through his first term.
Conservatives are called many names by the left and the uninformed. The favorites are “Nazi,” “fascist,” “racist,” “bigot,” “alarmist,” “neo-con,” “mysogonist,” “homophobe”: you name it, we’ve been called it. I take those names in stride knowing full well that the historical knowledge necessary to use big words like “Nazi” and “fascist” are beyond the mental capabilities of 97.4% of libs. When they put down their coloring books and crayons, and turn off Air America or The Teletubbies, they tend to whine and whine and whine, get in touch with their feelings, eat tofu, and yell “it’s not fair!” for hours on end. After all that hard work, they don’t have a lot of time left to read and think and analyze — not that they’d have the inclination to that in the first place, of course.
Real conservatives, conservatives who believe in the libertarian tenets of the Founding Fathers, believe that we the people must be protected from government. Hence, our Constitution has ten enumerated amendments that do just that: put limits on what the government cannot do to it’s citizens. The Bill of Rights*, therefore, should prevent the government from interfering in my life, as long as I am law-abiding and I do not interfere with someone else’s rights. Those same rights should should be granted to businesses, as well. Political correctness by Barack HUSSEIN Obama, is killing Americans and our Military daily. Take the Fort Hood Shooter or the Christmas Day Bomber. Hasan and Abdulmobamaba were both al-Quaeda agents. Evidently all the Army Generals that told US to move along, do not be anti-Muslim here, were just being politically correct. It is the rules of engagement that will give our enemy victory. That and their Satanic Verses.
The worst part of the all is that the Muslim priest survived our drone. Do we still have a CIA? Why is this guy still alive? Why did we elect a Muslim Kenyan-Indonesian president? Why when TSA kept Americans hours and hours at airport security the people concluded is that it was all Bush’e fault and went ahead and elected a Marxist?
Islam is a political system, not a religion. To say it is inappropriately gives it legitimacy under freedom of religion laws. The religious aspects of Islam are a thinly-veiled, made-up compilation of area religions of the time: Christianity, Judaism, and various local pagan/tribal faiths. But the “faith” is just a sugar coating over a cake of poison.
This country will not be free of terrorism until we act on the knowledge that Islam is a political system on a collision course with the rest of the world. It is fundamentally incompatible–I don’t care how “moderate” or “non-practicing” a Muslim is–with modern society. Islam is quite simply the enemy, and all its adherents should be treated so, no matter how “nice” or “normal” or “Westernized” they seem.
Until we recognize this, no amount of screenings, pat-downs, and other violations of privacy and civil rights will protect us from another bombing, no matter how “safe” they make us feel. We are merely giving the government more control over the people who least need to be controlled while allowing those who shouldn’t even be in this country to begin with to continue foiling our “security.”
Saddest thing is– most Liberalsdon’t realize the truth.
You know, I really miss Dubya. A good man and a patriot.
Australia Muslims who want to live under Islamic Sharia law were told on Wednesday to get out of Australia , as the government targeted radicals in a bid to head off potential terror attacks.. Separately, Rudd angered some Australian Muslims on Wednesday by saying he supported spy agencies monitoring the nation’s mosques. Quote: ‘IMMIGRANTS, NOT AUSTRALIANS, MUST ADAPT. Take It Or Leave It. I am tired of this nation worrying about whether we are offending some individual or their culture. Since the terrorist attacks on Bali , we have experienced a surge in patriotism by the majority of Australians. ‘ ‘This culture has been developed over two centuries of struggles, trials and victories by millions of men and women who have sought freedom’ ‘We speak mainly ENGLISH, not Spanish, Lebanese, Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Russian, or any other language. Therefore, if you wish to become part of our society . Learn the language!’ ‘Most Australians believe in God. This is not some Christian, right wing, political push, but a fact, because Christian men and women, on Christian principles, founded this nation, and this is clearly documented. It is certainly appropriate to display it on the walls of our schools. If God offends you, then I suggest you consider another part of the world as your new home, because God is part of our culture.’ ‘We will accept your beliefs, and will not question why. All we ask is that you accept ours, and live in harmony and peaceful enjoyment with us.’ ‘This is OUR COUNTRY, OUR LAND, and OUR LIFESTYLE, and we will allow you every opportunity to enjoy all this. But once you are done complaining, whining, and griping about Our Flag, Our Pledge, Our Christian beliefs, or Our Way of Life, I highly encourage you take advantage of one other great Australian freedom, ‘THE RIGHT TO LEAVE’.’ ‘If you aren’t happy here then LEAVE. We didn’t force you to come here. You asked to be here. So accept the country YOU accepted.’
Barack Obama is on track to have the most spectacularly failed presidency since Woodrow Wilson. In the modern era, we’ve seen several failed presidencies–led by Jimmy Carter and LBJ. Failed presidents have one strong common trait– they are repudiated, in the vernacular, spat out. Of course, LBJ wisely took the exit ramp early, avoiding a shove into oncoming traffic by his own party. Richard Nixon indeed resigned in disgrace, yet his reputation as a statesman has been partially restored by his triumphant overture to China 20. But, Barack Obama is failing. Failing big. Failing fast. And failing everywhere: foreign policy, domestic initiatives, and most importantly, in forging connections with the American people. The incomparable Dorothy Rabinowitz in the Wall Street Journal put her finger on it: He is failing because he has no understanding of the American people, and may indeed loathe them. Fred Barnes of the Weekly Standard says he is failing because he has lost control of his message, and is overexposed. Clarice Feldman of American Thinker produced a dispositive commentary showing that Obama is failing because fundamentally he is neither smart nor articulate; his intellectual dishonesty is conspicuous by its audacity and lack of shame. But, there is something more seriously wrong: How could a new president riding in on a wave of unprecedented promise and goodwill have forfeited his tenure and become a lame duck in six months? His poll ratings are in free fall. In generic balloting, the Republicans have now seized a five point advantage. This truly is unbelievable. What’s going on? No narrative. Obama doesn’t have a narrative. No, not a narrative about himself. He has a self-narrative, much of it fabricated, cleverly disguised or written by someone else. But this self-narrative is isolated and doesn’t connect with us. He doesn’t have an American narrative that draws upon the rest of us. All successful presidents have a narrative about the American character that intersects with their own where they display a command of history and reveal an authenticity at the core of their personality that resonates in a positive endearing way with the majority of Americans. We admire those presidents whose narratives not only touch our own, but who seem stronger, wiser, and smarter than we are. Presidents we admire are aspirational peers, even those whose politics don’t align exactly with our own: Teddy Roosevelt, FDR, Harry Truman, Ike, and Reagan. But not this president. It’s not so much that he’s a phony, knows nothing about economics, and is historically illiterate and woefully small minded for the size of the task–all contributory of course. It’s that he’s not one of us. And whatever he is, his profile is fuzzy and devoid of content, like a cardboard cutout made from delaminated corrugated paper. Moreover, he doesn’t command our respect and is unable to appeal to our own common sense. His notions of right and wrong are repugnant and how things work just don’t add up. They are not existential. His descriptions of the world we live in don’t make sense and don’t correspond with our experience. In the meantime, while we’ve been struggling to take a measurement of this man, he’s dissed just about every one of us–financiers, energy producers, banks, insurance executives, police officers, doctors, nurses, hospital administrators, post office workers, and anybody else who has a non-green job. Expect Obama to lament at his last press conference in 2012: “For those of you I offended, I apologize. For those of you who were not offended, you just didn’t give me enough time; if only I’d had a second term I could have offended you too.” Mercifully, the Founders at the Constitutional Convention in 1787 devised a useful remedy for such a desperate state–staggered terms for both houses of the legislature and the executive. An equally abominable Congress can get voted out next year. With a new Congress, there’s always hope of legislative gridlock until we vote for president again two short years after that. Yes, small presidents do fail, Barack Obama among them. The coyotes howl but the wagon train keeps rolling along. Margaret Thatcher: “The trouble with Socialism is, sooner or later you run out of other people’s money.” “A Liberal is a person who will give away everything he doesn’t own.”
To try the mastermind behind the biggest crime in U.S. history. The jurors will ultimately hear the case against confessed 9/11 mastermind Khalid Shaikh Mohammed.
Seeing as Obama and friends have published the names and home addresses of the CIA agents who were involved in questioning these guys, and now have a bright red target on their backs (and their families’)who in their right mind would be on the jury? You know these terrorists will take notes (about classified info)pass it on and they will also pass along the identities of the jurors.
I can see it now, Khalid Shaikh Mohammed‘s closing argument before the jury, will be somthing like this- Vote not guilty or you shall be beheaded. Any questions?
But that’s the price we MUST pay as American citizens for having the best Democracy in the world. I for one would be more than happy to be a juror and convict those to death who were responsible for 9/11/01.I serve on that jury with honor and pride no service in the world is better than being a juror in our country.I’m sure there are many other New Yorkers who feel the same as I so.What’s baffling is to see the media and many citizens who last week would boast “we can’t let the terrorist win
