A friend sent me the link to the following video. It would be funny if it weren’t so true.
Well, who’d a thunk it? Here we are, about 5 months from the Tampa convention, and we still don’t have a candidate. As I’ve stated in the past, I really like Gingrich if he can get past his ancient baggage. Well, Romney’s Super PAC made sure that wasn’t going to happen, so Newt might be done… especially after winning neither Alabama or Mississippi. Ron Paul? Puhleeze. As much as I like some libertarian views, this guy is so far out in left field, you can’t see him. He should just go back to the House and vote NO on everything. Apparently, his TX constituents like that, because they have been reelecting him for years.
That leaves us with Romney and Santorum. Ya know, at one time I considered Santorum a semi-viable candidate… until he started playing the ultra Right Wing candidate from Hell. What he is, is the mirror image of Obama. First he was gonna repeal ObamaCare. In and of itself, a good idea. Then he started talking about working to get Roe v. Wade repealed. Not a smart move for a candidate that wants to appeal to most women. Now, he’s on the “Santorum To Stomp Out Porn” campaign.
Let’s talk seriously: I am not pro-abortion… especially as a form of birth control. However, I am in favor of it being the woman’s call. The decision to have in abortion is between her, her physician and her God… not necessarily in that order. It’s nobody else’s business. Not yours, not mine, and most certainly not the Government’s. Santorum would do well to get off the Roe v. Wade kick.
Moving on to his views on pornography: If elected, Rick Santorum has promised to crack down on the distribution of explicit porn. Well, isn’t that just great! Let’s ignore the economy, the Fed’s monetary policy, unemployment, Congress’ ineptitude and go after an industry that actually employs people and really doesn’t hurt anybody. As president, Santorum says he would instruct his attorney general to prosecute those who distribute content his administration deems “obscene.” Santorum, however, has yet to provide a specific definition of what kind of pornography his attorney general would prosecute.
Look, I’m not a porn junkie, and I don’t care if you are. Watch all the porn you want… just keep it away from kids. What Santorum is proposing is just another form of Big Government… Government intruding on your life and telling you how you should live it… just like Obama.
All of a sudden, our choice of a suitable President is looking more clear. Put another way, perhaps our choices of who is NOT a suitable candidate is becoming more clear. Senator, if you want me to even consider voting for you, you need to BACK OFF some of the social issues, and focus on what’s really important: The Debt, the economy and the balance of trade, to name a few. Stop pandering to your ultra right wing base (sound familiar?), and get back to the issues that affect all of us… or you’ll not only NOT get my vote in CA’s June primary… you might not get it in November if you’re the Republican candidate. I don’t want Obama out bad enough to vote for a potential Facist replacement.]]>
Our less-than-illustrious Prezident Obama managed to do a little stumping on this election day during a visit to Michigan by telling voters there that Republican candidate Mitt Romney was shoveling a “load of you-know-what” in his 2008 NY Time op-ed criticizing the auto industry bailouts..
If you all remember, a UAW-owned trust was given a 17.5% ownership stake in GM as part of the bailout, while bondholders were left with nothing to show for their investment in the auto giant.
Prezident Obama went on to reject assertions that he was (and still is) pandering to special interests in his support of labor unions.
I have news for you, Mr. Prezident: If it can contribute to a political candidate’s campaign, but it cannot cast a vote, IT IS A SPECIAL INTEREST!
I urge you all to help put this socialist oath-breaking criminal back on the street this November. It doesn’t matter who the Republicans put on the ballot. Any of the Republican candidates would be better than 4 more years of this guy.
President Obama’s huge drop in popularity is clearly evident in a plethora of new bumper stickers found across the country. A few of these are shown below:
For those of you that would like a laugh:
Steve Bridges as “President Obama” – WRCOG, July 2010
Apparently, President Obama was quite offended by that. So, to show I’m an equal opportunity purveyor of satire, here is Mr. Bridges as President G.W. Bush:
I trust you all got a chuckle out of these.
It’s too bad the President and Congress don’t. Please take 5-1/2 minutes, and watch the video below. Whether you agree or disagree, please take the time to enter your answer to the new poll in the right margin.]]>
“I can make a firm pledge: Under my plan, no family making less than $250,000 a year will see any form of tax increase. Not your income tax, not your payroll tax, not your capital gains taxes, not any of your taxes.”
- – Then Senator Barack Obama, September 12, 2008
According to GOP.gov:
Beginning January 1, 2013, ObamaCare imposes a 3.8% Medicare tax on unearned income, including the sale of single family homes, townhouses, co-ops, condominiums, and even rental income.
In February 2010, 5.02 million homes were sold, according to the National Association of Realtors. On any given day, the sale of a house, townhome, condominium, co-op, or income from a rental property, can push middle-income families over the $250,000 threshold and slam them with a new tax they can’t afford.
This ObamaCare tax is the first time the government will apply a 3.8 percent tax on unearned income. This tax on home sales, unearned income and other Medicare taxes raise taxes more than $210 billion to pay for ObamaCare. The National Association of Realtors called this new Medicare tax on unearned income “destructive” and “ill-advised” and warned it would hurt job creation.
No thanks! I’ll keep my guns, my God and my money. You can keep “The Change”.
Well, now they’ve gone and done it. They’ve gone and whacked Osama bin Laden.
First, my hat is off the Seal Team 6. Take a bow, gentlemen.
Kudos also to all those involved in the intelligence gathering over time to make sure we got this one right. Can you imagine the political quagmire if we’d gone in there and whacked the wrong folks? My God… for a moment there I was almost wishing that were actually the case… if for no other reason than to see the egg on the Obama Admin’s face if that were to have really happened. But, it didn’t, and life goes on.
So, where does bin Laden’s demise leave us now? Some ideas, in no particular order:
That’s all I have time for today. God Bless You, and God Bless America!
If you voted for Obama in 2008 to prove you’re not a racist, you’ll have to vote for someone else in 2012 to prove you’re not an idiot.]]>
