We're Not Giving You Our Guns

You're going to have to come take them because we aren't giving them up without a big fight.

Obama the Colossal Failure

The Prophet Jeremiah Mourning Over The Destruction Of Jerusalem_Rembrandt Hammerzoon van Rijn

Last Friday when Standard and Poor's downgraded the United States of America's credit rating it was no surprise to us that look at things with common sense and responsibility. How can a great country keep spending much more than it takes in and have no plan or desire to curb such spending without dire consequences. The democrats would have you believe that if you would only agree to have your taxes raised we could solve this problem. That my friends couldn't be further from truth. If new taxes or more taxes were brought in the only result would be new or more spending, leaving the older debts to further reduce our country to the status not unlike those irresponsible countries in Europe such as Greece, Italy, Portugal and Spain.

The President of the United States is elected to lead the nation. The current resident of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue has at every opportunity to lead, recused himself with the preference to leave the responsibility to others. Barack Obama has no ability to lead and has no desire to be a leader of nation that prospers from a strong economy. Barack Obama accepts no responsibilities for his actions or rather, inaction and chooses to blame others for his massive mistakes and failures. It's almost comical if not sad that when the credit downgrade was announced, Barack Obama's senior adviser came out to announce that it was the fault of the Tea Party.

Well Mr Senior adviser, you have that kind of backward don't you? The Tea Party representatives were sent to Washington to stop the spending spree you, your party and your advisee have gone on with for the past three to four years. It's kind of ironic that you would blame the very people that came there to stop you. I guess your motto should be Mr Senior adviser, "Stop me before I spend again". Yes we will stop you Barack Obama, along with your pitiful and incomptent economic team at every possible opportunity.You have done enough damage to this country.

One thing is very clear though, you have proved a very important point. Socialism never works, it fails every time it's tried. Granted you and "Team Lenin" didn't get the full implementation of your socialist agenda through, the Tea Party stopped you before anymore of it could get enacted. Now it is time to reverse all of the socialist agenda and dismantle the things that were put into place under the regime of Barack Obama and send him and his rotten to the core ideas packing. Freedom and liberty will always prevail. We now must put our house back in order in spite of Barack Obama.

Q:How can we prevent someone as out of touch and ideologically extreme as Barack Obama from ever being elected President again?

A: Change the way we educate our children. We must educate our children to be strong individuals and not to fall prey to an all encompassing welfare state. This has to be part of the education of our children if this nation is to continue to be successful and prosperous.

Loss and Gain

WHEN I compare
What I have lost with what I have gained,
What I have missed with what attained,
Little room do I find for pride.
I am aware
How many days have been idly spent;
How like an arrow the good intent
Has fallen short or been turned aside.
But who shall dare
To measure loss and gain in this wise?
Defeat may be victory in disguise;
The lowest ebb is the turn of the tide.

Bin Laden Dead

It's taken almost 10 years but finally US Navy Seals found and killed Osama Bin Laden. My Mother was still alive when the 9/11 attack occured. Mom called me in the morning and woke me up to tell me to turn the TV on. I worked at night back then and I knew something bad was going on when Mom called.

Last night I was watching some TV when the news broke in to say that Obama was going to make an important announcement. I thought well, maybe he realized he wasn't up for the job as President and was going to resign like Nixon did. I watched live when Nixon came on TV. Well, that wasn't to be, Obama announced that Osama Bin Laden was killed by US forces while trying to capture him. There was good news and bad news to all of this. The good news is that Bin Laden is dead and no Navy Seals or other US military personnel were killed during the operation. The bad news, Obama is still President.

God Bless our Troops and thank you US Navy Seals.

The Desperate Left

The Desperate Man_Gustave Courbet

After all the events of the last few weeks including the murders of six people in Arizona by an insane person, it has become quite apparent to the majority of responsible adults that the left is in a desperate struggle to remain in power. The leftist majority in the House of Representatives is now gone by a wide margin. The Senate democrat majority now teeters on just a few votes. The majority of State governorships are held by Republicans with the majority of State legislatures too. The recent missteps by the leftist press blaming the shootings in Arizona on Sarah Palin has left them with little or no credibility, if they had any at all up to that point. The so called progressive left is in free fall and they are falling under their own weight.

It remains clear that the American people have had enough of the divisive politics that Obama and his administration has brought with him. We now have Federal government agencies running roughshod over decent law abiding American businesses that attempt to meet all the moving target regulations the agencies come up with. An example of which is an out of control EPA run by the Obama administration. The EPA under the direction of Obama, his ultra left confidant and regulatory Czar Cass Sunstein and EPA administrator Lisa P. Jackson is defying the laws that Congress has enacted and is threatening even more jobs in region already hit hard by the Obamanomics. EPA Yanks Permit

In a show of elitist outrage, John D Rockefeller III the long serving leftist Senator from West Virginia wrote to Obama to voice his displeasure at this turn of events with the EPA. The newly elected Senator from West Virginia who is also the former Governor, Joe Manchin, who in an election ad shot the Obamacare bill with a hunting rifle and promised to repeal Obamacare, went on to feign his outrage with words like "unprecedented power grab" about the EPA stopping the planned coal mining operation. Who are these people kidding? This is the only way for leftists to gain and hold power. They do it through back door regulation with faceless nameless bureaucrats or those already set to take the fall when it is discovered what they are doing.

When the people find out that their own government is undermining their jobs, their security and the national interests in the name of a foreign idealism called socialism the politicians don't hold onto their offices in the majority of cases and must defer to the underhanded tactics previously described. This is but one example of how our country is being undermined by an administration bent on restructuring our entire societal structure. If truth is hate speech then so be it.

SOME say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I’ve tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,

I think I know enough of hate
To know that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.

Free Speech won't be Stifled

Chapel of the Virgin at Subiaco_Samuel F.B. Morse

It appears that the leftists and their press minions are out to stifle free speech in the wake of the horrible murders in Arizona on Saturday. A 22 year old man shot and killed a 10 year girl, a Federal Judge and four others along with seriously wounding a sitting US House Representative. The left is complaining that speeches and words used by conservative personalities like Sarah Palin, Sharon Angle, Rush Limbaugh and Glenn Beck caused this young man to go and shoot these people. People that normally use their common sense know this is a bunch of poppycock. The young man that drew out a weapon and shot those people was mentally ill and I see those that say anyone or anything else is at fault other than this young man have mental problems of their own and should seek help for themselves.

The congresswoman that was shot was considered to be a moderate "blue dog" democrat and has been reviled as a traitor to many on the left if you go and read their posts over at the places they normally post before all this happened. Yet no one in the leftist press seems to make a note of that because it does not fit into their template and political agenda. Well, those of us that use our god given common sense do not blame the extremist left for this catastrophe but blame the person that was standing there pulling the trigger killing and wounding those people.

Of course everyone of you that have been around the block a few times and understand how things work understand that this catastrophe was going to somehow be politicized, it's inevitable and predictable. The gun control freaks will be coming out of the woodwork to ban this and that kind of gun. The leftist press will try and lay blame to all this because of too much speech. The rest of us will go on with our lives and some will utter a prayer or two for the families of those that died but life will go on and the struggle for freedom will continue unabated. I offer here my own prayers for the families because they are victims of the gunman and now the babbling nitwits trying to lay the blame on everyone but the person that caused this whole catastrophe.

Dearest Jesus, who wept at the death of your friend
and taught that they who mourn shall be comforted,
grant us the comfort of your presence in our loss.
Send Your Holy Spirit to direct us
lest we make hasty or foolish decisions.
Send Your Spirit to give us courage
lest through fear we recoil from living.
Send Your Spirit to bring us your peace
lest bitterness, false guilt, or regret take root in our hearts.

The Lord has given.
The Lord has taken away.
Blessed be the name of the Lord.
