Thank you for coming to the Mad American Club. Here everyone can post comments and suggest topics to discuss.
We all are Americans that care for the future of our country, we just defer at times on how that future looks and how to get there
Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who has been with us for many years. No one knows for sure how old he was, since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape. He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as:
- Knowing when to come in out of the rain;
- Why the early bird gets the worm;
- Life isn't always fair;
- and maybe it was my fault.
Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don't spend more than you can earn) and reliable strategies (adults, not children, are in charge).
His health began to deteriorate rapidly when well-intentioned but overbearing regulations were set in place. Reports of a 6-year-old boy charged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate; teens suspended from school for using mouthwash after lunch; and a teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly student, only worsened his condition.
Common Sense lost ground when parents attacked teachers for doing the job that they themselves had failed to do in disciplining their unruly children.
It declined even further when schools were required to get parental consent to administer sun lotion or an aspirin to a student; but could not inform parents when a student became pregnant and wanted to have an abortion.
Common Sense lost the will to live as the churches became businesses; and criminals received better treatment than their victims.
Common Sense took a beating when you couldn't defend yourself from a burglar in your own home and the burglar could sue you for assault.
Common Sense finally gave up the will to live, after a woman failed to realize that a steaming cup of coffee was hot. She spilled a little in her lap, and was promptly awarded a huge settlement.
Common Sense was preceded in death, by his parents, Truth and Trust, by his wife, Discretion, by his daughter, Responsibility, and by his son, Reason.
He is survived by his 4 stepbrothers;
I Know My Rights
I Want It Now
Someone Else Is To Blame
I'm A Victim
Not many attended his funeral because so few realized he was gone. If you still remember him, pass this blog post on. If not, join the majority and do nothing
Post your comments below and have a great weekend! ...
"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the US Government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government's reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America's debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that "the buck stops here." Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better". -- Senator Barack H. Obama, March 2006
1.He is supposed to be the leader, yet he spends 90% of his time fund raising and only in the last couple of weeks does he attempt to deal with the National Debt.
2.Because of his radical views, he was unable to pass a budget, even when his own party controlled both houses of congress.
3.The House of Reps has put forth plans (more than once) to address the budget and now the debt ceiling, yet those plans have been demagogue by Obama. Harry Reid in the Senate will not even allow the plan from the house to be heard, much less voted on. What a coward!
4.Obama now blames everyone else (house of representatives) for his own lack of understanding and leadership.
5.Obama talks about working stiffs, ordinary folks…what does he know about Americans??? He grew up outside of America. He did not work as a child nor did his parents instill any work ethic into him. He knows nothing about working people. His anti American father who Obama admires and wrote about, had nothing but contempt for America, just as the church Obama chose to attend has.
6.Obama rants in his press conference about us knowing we are getting a raw deal. Obama knows nothing! Did he see the last election??? America does not want his socialist agenda!
7.Obama says we are mad at everyone, he is wrong again, we are mad at him and his liberal cronies.
8.Our commander and freak says we no matter how hard we work, we can’t keep up. Keep up with what? Keep up with how you spend money you freak!
9.This A..hole has the balls to stand up in front of American television, and tell us that what we are looking for is someone to stand up and look out for us. I would like to slap this idiot! We are Americans, we can stand up for ourselves, we always have and we always will! We stood up when the largest republican victory was just achieved! Obama, if you want to be king over someone, LEAVE America and go find some sheep to rule over!
10.To say that all we are looking for is someone to take care of us is an insult! Get out of that office and out of our country! Americans can take care of themselves if the government will stay out of the way and stop handicapping us! Obama is attempting to take us where people all over the world, are trying to get out of, government oppression.
11.In his public rant he attacks Americans that stand up for their beliefs. He insults people we chose to listen to on the radio and the news programs we chose to watch.
12.Obama makes it very clear that he has no integrity. A pledge to the American people means nothing to him. A pledge during a political campaign, is nothing more than words spoken to appease the ignorant, unwashed masses in Obamas view. His word, spoken or written down is meaningless. He said so!
13.He talks about worrying about a primary fight…those are his thoughts, Obama owns those. I have heard nothing like that from anyone else. They are concerned about budges, deficits and Americas future. Obama is the one breaking records attending fund raisers and gearing up for re-election.
Obama is a Socialist pig! His agenda should be destroyed before he and his liberal supporters destroy America as we have known it!
He’s been called many things by his opponents: a socialist, a Chicago machine politician, even a covert Muslim.
His supporters think of him as an enlightened progressive finally taking America into a humane future where government ensures social justice.
So, what’s all the fuss about? We’ve prepared a short audio presentation to tell you more about it.
The White House doesn't want you to read The Roots of Obama's Rage, but you must read this book... Pick it up today!
My old grandpa said to me 'Son, there comes a time in every man's life when he stops bustin' knuckles and starts bustin' caps andusually it's when he becomes too old to take an ass whoopin.' I don't carry a gun to kill people. I carry a gun to keep from being killed. I don't carry a gun to scare people. I carry a gun because sometimes this world can be a scary place. I don't carry a gun because I'm paranoid. I carry a gun because there are real threats in the world. I don't carry a gun because I'm evil. I carry a gun because I have lived long enough to see the evil in the world. I don't carry a gun because I hate the government. I carry a gun because I understand the limitations of government. I don't carry a gun because I'm angry. I carry a gun so that I don't have to spend the rest of my life hating myself for failing to be prepared. I don't carry a gun because I want to shoot someone. I carry a gun because I want to die at a ripe old age in my bed, and not on a sidewalk somewhere tomorrow afternoon. I don't carry a gun because I'm a cowboy. I carry a gun because, when I die and go to heaven, I want to be a cowboy. I don't carry a gun to make me feel like a man. I carry a gun because men know how to take care of themselves and the ones they love. I don't carry a gun because I feel inadequate. I carry a gun because unarmed and facing three armed thugs, I am inadequate. I don't carry a gun because I love it. I carry a gun because I love life and the people who make it meaningful to me.Police protection is an oxymoron. Free citizens must protect themselves. Police do not protect you from crime, they usually just investigate the crime after it happens and then call someone in to clean up the mess. Personally, I carry a gun because I'm too young to die and too old to take an ass whoopin'.....author unknown (but obviously brilliant)

Guns in the hands of honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun-control laws adversely affect only the law-abiding citizens. Take note my fellow Americans, before it's too late!
The next time someone talks in favor of gun control, please remind them of this history lesson. With guns, we are 'citizens'. Without them, we are 'subjects'.
During WW II the Japanese decided not to invade America because they knew most Americans were ARMED!
If you value your freedom, please spread this antigun-control message to all of your friends. The purpose of fighting is to win. There is no possible victory in defense. The sword is more important than the shield, and skill is more important than either. The final weapon is the brain. All else is supplemental.
SWITZERLAND ISSUES EVERY HOUSEHOLD A GUN! SWITZERLAND'S GOVERNMENT TRAINS EVERY ADULT THEY ISSUE A RIFLE.
SWITZERLAND HAS THE LOWEST GUN RELATED CRIME RATE OF ANY CIVILIZED COUNTRY IN THE WORLD!!!
IT'S A NO BRAINER! DON'T LET OUR GOVERNMENT WASTE MILLIONS OF OUR TAX DOLLARS IN AN EFFORT TO MAKE ALL LAW ABIDING CITIZENS AN EASY TARGET.
While everyone is focusing on Arizona's new law, look what Oklahoma has been doing! An update from Oklahoma: Oklahoma law passed, 37 to 9, had a few liberals in the mix, an
amendment to place the Ten Commandments on the front entrance to the
state capitol . The feds in D.C., along with the ACLU, said it would
be a mistake. Hey this is a conservative state, based on Christian
values...! HB 1330 Guess what .......... Oklahoma did it anyway.
Oklahoma recently passed a law in the state to incarcerate all illegal
immigrants, and ship them back to where they came from unless they
want to get a green card and become an American citizen . They all
scattered. HB 1804. Hope we didn't send any of them to your state.
This was against the advice of the Federal Government, and the ACLU,
they said it would be a mistake. Guess what .......... Oklahoma did it anyway.
Recently we passed a law to include DNA samples from any and all
illegal's to the Oklahoma database, for criminal investigative
purposes . Pelosi said it was unconstitutional SB 1102 Guess what ........ Oklahoma did it anyway.
Several weeks ago, we passed a law, declaring Oklahoma as a Sovereign
state, not under the Federal Government directives . Joining Texas,
Montana and Utah as the only states to do so.
More states are likely to follow: Louisiana, Alabama, Georgia, the
Carolina's, Tennessee, Kentucky, Missouri, Arkansas, West Virginia,
Mississippi, Florida. Save your confederate money, it appears the
South is about to rise up once again. HJR 1003
The federal Government has made bold steps to take away our guns.
Oklahoma, a week ago, passed a law confirming people in this state
have the right to bear arms and transport them in their vehicles . I'm
sure that was a setback for the criminals. The Liberals didn't like it
-- But.... Guess what........... Oklahoma did it anyway.
Just this month, the state has voted and passed a law that ALL drivers
license exams will be printed in English, and only English, and no
other language. They have been called racist for doing this, but the
fact is that ALL of the road signs are in English only. If you want to
drive in Oklahoma, you must read and write English. Really simple.
By the way, the Liberals don't like any of this either.
Guess what...who cares... Oklahoma is doing it anyway.
MAKES YOU WANT TO BECOME A "SOONER", DOESN'T IT!!!!!!!!
