Dear Presidant Obama





 

Sherry Hackett, wife of the late Buddy Hackett, is a dyed-in-the-wool Democrat.
I would think that many other Democrats share her position...
This was written by Sherry Hackett, Buddy Hackett's widow

"WE NOTICED"

President Obama:

Today I read of your administrations' plan to re-define September 11 as a National Service Day.
 Sir, it's time we had a talk.
During your campaign, Americans watched as you made mockery of our tradition of standing and crossing your heart when the Pledge of Allegiance was spoken. You, out of four people on the stage, were the only one not honoring our tradition. YES, "We noticed."

During one of your many speeches, Americans heard you say that you intended to visit all 57 states. We all know that Islam, not America has 57 states.
 YES, "We noticed." When President Bush leaned over at Ground Zero and gently placed aflower on the memorial, while you nonchalantly tossed your flower onto the pile without leaning over. YES, "We noticed."

Every time you apologized to other countries for America 's position on an issue we have wondered why you don't share our pride in this great country.. When you have heard foreign leaders berate our country andour beliefs, you have not defended us. In fact, you insulted the British Crown beyond belief.
 YES, "We noticed."

When your pastor of 20 years, "God-damned America " and said that 9/11 was " America 's chickens coming home to roost" and you denied having heard recriminations of that nature, we wondered how that could be. You later disassociated yourself from that church and Pastor Wright because it was politically expedient to do so.
 YES, "We noticed."

When you announced that you would transform America , we wondered why. With all her faults, America is the greatest country on earth. Sir, KEEP THIS IN MIND, "if not for America and the people who built her, you wouldn't be sitting in the White House now." Prior to your election to the highest office in this Country, you were a senator from Illinois and from what we can glean from the records available, not a very remarkable one.
 YES, "We noticed."

All through your campaign and even now, you have surrounded yourself with individuals who are basically unqualified for the positions for which you appointed them. Worse than that, the majority of them are people who, like you, bear no special allegiance, respect, or affection for this country and her traditions.
 YES, "We noticed."

You are 24 months into your term and every morning millions of Americans wake up to a new horror heaped on us by you. You seek to saddle working Americans with a health care/insurance reform package that, along with cap and trade, will bankrupt this nation.
 YES, "We noticed."

We seek, by protesting, to let our representatives know that we are not in favor of these crippling expenditures and we are labeled  un-American","racist", "mob." We wonder how we are supposed to let you know how frustrated we are. You have attempted to make our protests seem isolated and insignificant. Until your appointment, Americans had the right to speak out.
 YES, "We noticed."

On September 11, 2001 there were no Republicans or Democrats, only Americans. And we all grieved together and helped each other in  whatever way we could. The attack on 9/11 was carried out because we are Americans.
 And YES, "We noticed.."

There were many of us who prayed that as a black president you could help unite this nation. In six months you have done more to destroy this nation than the attack on 9/11. You have failed us.
 YES, "We noticed."

September 11 is a day of remembrance for all Americans. You propose to make 9/11 a "National Service Day." While we know that you don't share our reverence for 9/11, we pray that history will report your proposal as what it is, a disgrace.
 YES, "We noticed."

You have made a mockery of our Constitution and the office that you hold. You have embarrassed and slighted us in foreign visits and policy.
 YES, "We noticed."
Well, she just laid it out there fokes. Now what are you going to do?

Balance in Gods view

People in Washington are always talking about having a balanced approach to everything.

Being from a small town in Colorado, I must agree with the approach below! 


God was missing for six days. Eventually, Michael the archangel found him, resting on the seventh day.
 
He inquired, "Where have you been?"
 
God smiled deeply and proudly pointed downwards through the clouds, "Look, Michael. Look what I've made."
 
Archangel Michael looked puzzled, and said, "What is it?"
 
"It's a planet," replied God, and I've put life on it.
I'm going to call it Earth and it's going to be a place to test Balance."
 
"Balance?" inquired Michael, "I'm still confused."
 
God explained, pointing to different parts of Earth.
"For example, northern Europe will be a place of great opportunity and wealth, while southern Europe is going to be poor. Over here I've placed a continent of white people, and over there is a continent of black people. Balance in all things."
 
God continued pointing to different countries.
"This one will be extremely hot, while this one will be very cold and covered in ice."
 
The Archangel
, impressed by God's work, then pointed to a land area and said, "What's that one?"
 
"That's Colorado, the most glorious place on earth.
There are beautiful Mountains and Prairies, rivers and streams, lakes, forests, hills, and the plains." Then God Said, "This is Colorado, the center of America... The people of Colorado are going to be handsome, modest, intelligent, and humorous, and they are going to travel the world. They will be extremely sociable, hardworking, high achieving, carriers of peace, and producers of good things."
 
Michael gasped in wonder and admiration, but then asked, "But what about balance, God?
You said there would be balance."
 
God smiled, "I will create Washington
, D.C. Wait till you see the idiots I put there."

Congress, a simple explanation

The  English language has some wonderfully anthropomorphic collective nouns for  the various groups of animals.
We  are all familiar with a Herd of cows, a Flock of chickens, a  School of fish and a Gaggle of geese.
However, less  widely known is a Pride of lions, a Murder of crows (as well  as their cousins the rooks and ravens), an Exaltation of doves and,  presumably because they look so wise, a Parliament of owls.
  
Now  consider a group of Baboons. They are the loudest, most dangerous, most  obnoxious, most viciously aggressive and least intelligent of all  primates.

So what is the proper collective noun for a group of baboons?  

Believe it or not ....... A Congress!  
   
I  guess that pretty much explains the things in Washington!

"I'm 70 and I'm Tired"

"I'm 70 and I'm Tired"
By Robert A. Hall


I'm 70. Except for having 4 children with only a 6 week maternity period , I've worked, hard, since I was 17. Despite some health challenges, I still put in 50-hour weeks, and seldom called in sick in seven or eight years. I made a good salary, but I didn't inherit my job or my income, and I worked to get where I am. Given the economy, retirement is hard, and I'm tired. Very tired. 

I'm tired of being told that I have to "spread the wealth" to people who don't have my work ethic. I'm tired of being told the government will take the money I earned, by force if necessary, and give it to people too lazy to earn it. 

I'm tired of being told that Islam is a "Religion of Peace," when every day I can read dozens of stories of Muslim men killing their sisters, wives and daughters for their family "honor"; of Muslims rioting over some slight offense; of Muslims murdering Christian and Jews because they aren't "believers"; of Muslims burning schools for girls; of Muslims stoning teenage rape victims to death for "adultery"; of Muslims mutilating the genitals of little girls; all in the name of Allah, because the Qur'an and Shari'a law tells them to. 

I'm tired of being told that out of "tolerance for other cultures" we must let Saudi Arabia use our oil money to fund mosques and mandrassa Islamic schools to preach hate in America and Canada , while no American nor Canadian group nor Australia is allowed to fund a church, synagogue or religious school in Saudi Arabia to teach love and tolerance. 

I'm tired of being told I must lower my living standard to fight global warming, which no one is allowed to debate.

I'm tired of being told that drug addicts have a disease, and I must help support and treat them, and pay for the damage they do. Did a giant germ rush out of a dark alley, grab them, and stuff white powder up their noses while they tried to fight it off?

I'm tired of hearing wealthy athletes, entertainers and politicians of both parties talking about innocent mistakes, stupid mistakes or youthful mistakes, when we all know they think their only mistake was getting caught.. I'm tired of people with a sense of entitlement, rich or poor. 

I'm real tired of people who don't take responsibility for their lives and actions.. I'm tired of hearing them blame the government, or discrimination or big-whatever for their problems. 

Yes, I'm damn tired. But I'm also glad to be 70. Because, mostly, I'm not going to have to see the world these people are making. I'm just sorry for my grandchildren. 

Robert A.. Hall is a Marine Vietnam veteran who served five terms in the Massachusetts State Senate.

Germany and the right wing tea baggers


Carnival Parade in Germany...imagine if we made these "floats"?

These floats were part of the annual Carnival Parade in Germany watched by an estimated 3 million people in 3 German cities including Dusseldorf . With our controlled press, it is interesting to see that German citizens seem to know more about the U.S. political system and environment than the majority of citizens on the streets of America .





“There are two ways to conquer and enslave a nation.

One is by the sword. The other is by debt.”

John Adams 

Something you Liberals should keep in mind;
There were no demeaning  floats of Mr. Bush or Mr. Regan.

Do you think that all of Germany is just right wing tea baggers???

Have a nice weekend!
