A Different Lesson Plan for the President’s Speech

Posted by Sandra on September 8, 2009

http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2009/09/04/jon-kraushar-obama-school-speech/

Just in case you don’t like the “Menu of Classroom Activities [for] President Obama’s Address to Students Across America on September 8, here are ten suggested alternative questions to explore with students from pre-K through high school.

  1. President and Mrs. Obama have chosen to send their daughters to private school, at a cost of about $29,000 a year for each girl. What choices, if any, should other parents have about where their children go to school and about how to pay for educating their children?
  2. Why is it important that the president and other elected officials, like the mayor, senators, members of Congress, or the governor listen to what citizens say, whether in town hall meetings or in any other form of citizen communication? Why is what citizens say important to these elected officials?
  3. When elected officials pass laws should they and their staffs also be obliged to follow those same laws or should they be exempt–and in either case, why?
  4. If an elected or appointed public official breaks the law what should be done about that?
  5. When elected officials publicly make a promise, what should be done if they go back on their word and do something completely different–including the exact opposite of what they said they’d do?
  6. President Obama is a big believer in personal responsibility. How does “personal responsibility” apply to elected officials and to citizens, in general?
  7. How much control should individual citizens have over their lives versus the amount of control given to government when it comes to things like education, health care, saving and investing for retirement and any other issue?
  8. What limits, if any, should there be on freedom of speech, such as on the radio, on TV, on YouTube, in print, in classroom discussions, etc.?
  9. What do you think about giving some students special preferences in admitting them to schools or awarding them money or prizes: what guidelines do you suggest?
  10. What is the one piece of advice that you would to each of the following groups: Teachers? Principals? Parents? Your fellow students? The American people?

Guest Blogger; Obama is not my kid’s mama!

Posted by Sandra on September 7, 2009

http://bluecottonmemory.wordpress.com/2009/09/06/obama-is-not-my-kids-mama/#comment-619

Children are so impressionable.  It doesn’t take much appeal to get them on board for a project.  Last year, I had my fill of fundraisings. Some I didn’t mind; however, when they started coming home begging me to give them a dollar to wear a hat for Diabetes or Cancer or some other fundraiser, I hit the limit of my endurance.  I was sick of my little guys’ hearts being manipulated for money.

Let me give another example.  If my husband and I were divorced (which we aren’t), and I asked my children to ask their dad for the child-support payment, I would be taken to task by the government’s Child Services.  I would be chasitised for manipulating my children to achieve an ends.

Which is what I think some of those school fund-raisers do–or rather that is how they go about soliciting funds–by preying on the tractable hearts and minds of my children.

Children are so responsive to cries for help.  They do not see the “man behind the curtain” as in The Wizard of Oz.  They do not doubt that the person asking them for help has ulterior motives.  They are like little birds in the nest, happily opening their mouths to swallow the food their mother bird, or others that the mother bird trusts, drops down their gullets.

constitution
Based on this reasoning, I do not want my little guys listening to Tuesdays speech, beamed into my children’s classrooms, without parental guidance.  How many of those children will think the president is directly talking to their classroom or their school.  Imagine! The president needs their help!  “Gee, Mom, President Obama says I can help him.  He wants me on his side.  Wow-I need 3 ways to help him.  My teacher helped me come up with a plan.”

My malleable, trusting sons will come home telling me we need to help the President of the United States implement his socialist agend.  Then Iwill be the bad guy because I do not believe in his plans.

My high school students are different.  We have discussed politics, our beliefs, and history.  I am a firm believer that you need at leat 3 reasons to believe what you believe.  You just cannot believe because your mama or daddy does.  Understanding why you stand for something is critically important.

Faithful did his sophomore paper on the difference between capitalism and socialism.  Most of the students in his class seemed to think that socialism was the way to go.  “Everybody should get equal pay,” they said.  “After all, not everyone gets the same opportunities.” My son responded, “Well, do you want the garbage man doing brain surgery on you? “   

Marx’s ideological theory, “From everyone according to his ability to everyone according to his need” is the foundation of exploitation and reducation of freedom.  There is no American Dream in socialism.

U_S_Constitution
Our forefathers fought to keep the government out of our life, our religion, our dreams, and out of how we raise our children.  A president attempting to beguile each child in America, trying to get little children to promote his agenda, doeson’t seem like the government that George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and James Madison established.

When President  Obama goes into each classroom, bypassing our own community checkpoints like our school boards, bypassing parents–it sure seems like government is getting pretty personal, pretty intimate with our day-to-day life.

Even more insidious is that he knows those children will go home all pumped up, like they do for those fundraisers, begging their parents to support a president whose plans they cannot even begin to understand.  They just want to help. When their parents do not jump on the bandwagon with them, guess who ends up being the bad guy? The government driving a wedge between parents and children sure doesn’t sound like my America.

On Tuesday, my two youngest sons will be having ice cream with me and their dad while President Obama speaks.  We’re going to be reading the Preamble and Article 2 of the Constitution.  We might even talk about what President James Madison, the 4th president of the United States, thought when he wrote the Federalist Paper 45.

In Matthew 22:21,  Jesus says to “Give to Caesar what is Caesar’s, and to God what is God’s.” So far, in American, my children do not belong to our government.  They belong to their parents.  Let us keep it that way!

National Keep Your Kids Home From School Day!

Posted by Sandra on September 1, 2009

National Indoctrination Day is next Tuesday, September 8th.  Most of us have renamed it “National Keep Your Kids Home From School Day“.   

My children will not be attending if our district is participating in this indoctrination experiment.  I have already contacted the school board and the principals and they are trying to find out if our schools will be showing this hot air next week.  If they are, the principal has assured me they will have an alternate for my kids – however, I wonder what that will be?  Sitting in a hallway?  Perhaps being beaten out back because they don’t support the Otard?  If it ‘s anything like what happened pre-election, that wouldn’t surprise me. 

http://michellemalkin.com/2009/09/01/obamas-sept-8-speech-to-schoolchildren/

Think it’s a joke?  Look at the official paperwork sent to the teachers.   Moms and dads, you MUST protect your children at all costs!!obeyAnyone remember reading about Hitler in your history classes?  Yeah.  This makes my stomach churn.

The Columbus Tea Party is tonight… I’m taking Brett and Justus since they’re old enough to understand that they’ll be paying for this ignorant administration’s ridiculous spending for the rest of their lives, and possibly their children’s lives, if we don’t do something NOW.

So here’s my signs!

FRONTS:

BACKS:

Justus wants to hold the gravemarker… lol!  So Brett will hold the mortgage one – it’s the most relevant for him too.

You’ve read the take from myself and AP on Barack Obama’s “Special Olympics” wisecrack last night. Now it’s your turn to weigh in. Along with AOL’s readers, join in a poll to give your verdict on Obama’s attempt at levity on Leno. Offensive? Funny? Unwise?     Click the link above to take the poll.

To help you out, here’s the actual video, and I’ll compare it to another notable comment about the Special Olympics from a major political figure this month. First, thank goodness we elected that brilliant and witty Chicago politician:

And thank goodness we didn’t elect that classless trailer-park hick from Alaska:

Take a moment to read the comments too – funny stuff!!

52 days, 52 mistakes

Posted by Sandra on March 18, 2009

Let me count them up, in no particular order. Some are big. Some are small.

We all make mistakes. Here’s his:

1. A do-over on the oath of office.
2. Tim Geithner.
3. Bill Richardson.
4. Tom Daschle.
5. Eric “Nation of Cowards” Holder.
6. Leon Panetta.
7. Arne “Cappuccino” Duncan.
8. Hilda Solis (OK, her husband has the tax liens).
9. Nancy Killefer.
10. Charles Freeman Jr.
11. Ron Kirk.
12. Adolfo Carrion.
13. Banning offshore oil again.
14. Letting Nancy Pelosi write the $787 billion “stimulus’ plan.
15. Relying on Tim Geithner to explain it.
16. It is a $13-a-week stimulus, or as his wife said of Bush’s plan: “You’re getting $600. What can you do with that? Not to be ungrateful or anything. But maybe it pays down a bill, but it doesn’t pay down every bill every month.”
17. Going to a press conference without a TelePrompTer. I… Uhh… Umm… Could you repeat the question?
18. Using a TelePrompTer at a press conference. Big boys don’t need training wheels.
19. “Good evening, everybody. Please be seated. Before I take your questions tonight, I’d like to speak briefly.” 1,228 words later he took his first question.
20. Going after Rush Limbaugh.
21. Going after Rick Santelli.
22. Going after Jim Cramer.
23. “Never waste a good crisis.”
24. Obama supporter Warren Buffett: “I don’t think anybody on December 7th would have said a ‘war is a terrible thing to waste, and therefore we’re going to try and ram through a whole bunch of things and — but we expect to — expect the other party to unite behind us on the — on the big problem.’ It’s just a mistake, I think.”
25. Writing a love letter to Vlad and Dmitry.
26. Putting Poland under the bus.
27. Putting Tibet under the bus.
28. Putting Israel under the bus.
29. Taking Cuba out from under the bus.
30. Having his tax cheat go after the tax cheats in Switzerland. Cognitive dissonance.
31. “Karzai has a bunker mentality.”
32. Iran has plans to Marine One helicopters.
33. “I won.”
34. BlackBerry singing in the middle of the night/ Take these golden secrets and learn to fly…
35. Obama: “If Congress passes our plan, this company will be able to rehire some of the folks who were just laid off.” CEO: No. There will be more layoffs.
36. DVDs to Gordon Brown.
37. “You can’t take a trip to Las Vegas or go down to the Super Bowl on the taxpayers’ dime.” Vegas convention bookings nosedive.
38. Wagyu.
39. Reset/overcharge button given to Russia.
40. Taking a 4-day holiday weekend before signing “emergency” legislation.
41. “I did think it might be useful to point out that it wasn’t under me that we started buying a bunch of shares of banks. It wasn’t on my watch. And it wasn’t on my watch that we passed a massive new entitlement — the prescription drug plan — without a source of funding. And so I think it’s important just to note when you start hearing folks throw these words around that we’ve actually been operating in a way that has been entirely consistent with free-market principles and that some of the same folks who are throwing the word ’socialist’ around can’t say the same.”
42. Stiffing Chicago for nearly $2 million for that Election Night par-tay.
43. Caroline Kennedy.
44. Bombing Pakistan.
45. Sending the bust of Sir Winston Churchill back to the British.
46. Saying: “President Obama has accomplished more in 30 days than any president in modern history.”
47. A window is not a door.
48. Doctors must perform abortions.
49. Signing earmarks while denouncing them.
50. Adding signing statements while denouncing them.
51. Quadrupling the deficits, while denouncing them.
52. Missing the Gridiron Club dinner.

But be of good cheer. He has 1,409 days left to make up for his stumbles out of the starting gate.

Is America Being Deliberately Destroyed?

Posted by Sandra on March 4, 2009

Even Canada sees what’s happening to our once great nation.

 

These mindless borrowing, spending and taxing programs can have no other rational purpose than the deliberate impoverishment of all Americans through joblessness, rising taxes, the debasing of the dollar’s value, and environmental regulations that will cripple industry and increase the cost of energy.

What could justify the obscene failure of Congress to hold a single hearing before passing a “stimulus” plan that apparently none of its members had read before voting on it. It represents nothing more than an accumulation of the thousands of Democrat “earmarks” that Congress knew former President George W. Bush would have vetoed.

Every single American as well as Americans yet to be born will be saddled with huge debts tied to a multi-trillion-dollar deficit that President Obama has endorsed and Congress has created.

It is not too soon to begin planning to elect a Republican-controlled Congress in 2010 to stop the bleeding.

What is the core difference between Democrats and Republicans?

Posted by Sandra on February 16, 2009

Tip o’ da hat to my friend MJS for posting this on Facebook!

To put this entire note in simple terms, let me give some vocabularies to summarize:

character |ˈkariktər|
noun: the mental and moral qualities distinctive to an individual; strength and originality in a person’s nature

hypocrisy |hiˈpäkrisē|
noun: the practice of claiming to have moral standards or beliefs to which one’s own behavior does not conform; pretense.

This is not about politics. This is about decency and respect. Bush may not have been the perfect President, but he has always been a decent human being. Thank you, President Bush for showing that cowboys got more class than any Rhode Scholarship or Harvard degree combined. This is why I cannot stand liberal elitism.

Jan 20th, 2009:
Outgoing President George W. Bush quietly boards his helicopter and leaves for Texas, commenting only: “Today is not about me. Today is a historical day for our nation and people.”

Eight years ago:
Outgoing President Bill Clinton schedules two separate radio addresses to the nation, and organizes a public farewell speech/rally in downtown Washington D.C. scheduled to directly conflict with incoming President Bush’s inauguration ceremony.

 

Jan 20th, 2009:
President Bush leaves office without issuing a single Presidential pardon, only granting a commutation of sentence to two former border patrol agents convicted of shooting a convicted drug smuggler. He does not grant any type of clemency to Scooter Libby or any other former political aide, ally, or business partner.

Eight years ago:
President Clinton issues 140 pardons and several commutations of sentence on his final day in office. Included in these are: billionaire financier, convicted tax evader, and leading Democratic campaign contributor Marc Rich; Whitewater scandal figure Susan McDougal; Congressional Post Office Scandal figure and former Democratic Congressman Dan Rostenkowski; convicted bank fraud, sexual assault and child porn perpetrator and former Democratic Congressman Melvin Reynolds; and convicted drug felon Roger Clinton, the President’s half-brother.

Jan 20th, 2009:
The Bush daughters leave gift baskets in the White House bedrooms for the Obama daughters, containing flowers, candy, stuffed animals, DVD’s and CD’s, and heartfelt notes of encouragement and advice for the young girls on how to prepare for their new lives in the White House.

Eight years ago:
Clinton and Gore staffers rip computer wires and electrical outlets from the White House walls, stuff piles of notebook papers into the White House toilets, systematically remove the letter “W” from every computer key-pad in the entire White House, and damage several thousand dollars worth of furniture in the White House master bedroom.

Headlines On This Date 4 Years Ago

“Republicans spending $42 million on inauguration while troops Die in unarmored Humvees”

“Bush extravagance exceeds any reason during tough economic times”

“Fat cats get their $42 million inauguration party, Ordinary Americans get the shaft”

Headlines Today

“Historic Obama Inauguration will cost only $170 million”

“Obama Spends $170 million on inauguration; America Needs A Big Party”

“Everyman Obama shows America how to celebrate”

“Citibank executives contribute $8 million to Obama Inauguration”

Global Whining – we’re beginning to see an end to the scam?

Posted by Sandra on January 27, 2009

Everyone outside of Al Gore’s extended family now knows that man-made global warming is an urban legend cooked up by painty-waist eco-nuts who never got over the fact that George W. Bush was (twice!) elected President of the United States.

http://pajamasmedia.com/rogerkimball/2009/01/26/another-tale-of-two-headlines/

I love the sound of “I told you so” in the morning.   I got so sick and tired over the years hearing friends and family and strangers on the internet buy into this crap, I’m so glad it’s finally becoming a common realization that CHANGING YOUR LIGHTBULB WON’T CHANGE THE WORLD.  The changes in the Earth’s climate are CYCLICAL AND THERE’S NOT A DAMNED THING YOU’RE GOING TO DO TO CHANGE IT.

Well, Otard thinks he can – watch more of your tax dollars go buh bye!!!  If you’re not paying for someone overseas or here in the USSA to murder their baby, you’re gonna pay for someone to say they can change the sunspots.  Good investments.  Yeah, baby, you are such smart voters out there!

Unless, of course, you’re Al Gore or General Electric.  You guys just continue to live in your little fantasy world.  Now, can we whip that Nobel Prize out from the meaty arm hanging at Al’s waistline’s orbit (yeah, you’re not eating cow, right Al baby?) and give to someone that actually deserved and earned it, instead of someone that bought it?  Thank you.

Global warming that we can change by buying new light bulbs and carbon credits.  Still makes me chuckle.

Obama Officials Confirm He Will Fund Foreign Abortions Starting Wednesday

Posted by Sandra on January 21, 2009

http://lifenews.com/nat4757.html

Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) — Officials with the incoming administration of Barack Obama have confirmed that he will indeed overturn a pro-life policy of President Bush on his first day in office. Despite campaigning on the rhetoric of wanting to reduce abortions, Obama will make one of his first actions promoting them globally.

Meanwhile, some 77 members of Congress have signed onto a letter asking Obama to back down from doing so.

I am searching for the words to express my personal disgust and disdain of this information.  I watch my babies play on the floor this morning and want to cry for those who can’t.  And now our tax dollars can pay for more murders

Good job, America.  Not only did you vote in a racist, you voted in a murderer who thinks babies are punishment.  What’s wrong with you people?

Movin’ on…

Posted by Sandra on November 6, 2008

Well, other than chuckling with amusement and shaking my head at some of the ridiculous decisions our government will make in the next four years, it looks like I’ll have to swing back to my more personal and parenting topics in my blog… not nearly as funny as the past few months’ posts, but it is what it is.

Glenn Beck, a brilliant political mind like Stephen Kruiser, made some great statements yesterday on his show (which I hope doesn’t get censored or taken off the air in the next four years).  He posted his transcript, and I am copying it here.  For those with the Election Blues, we all have to just really focus on the phenomenal economy and changes that Reagan made after the mistake was made with Carter – history really does repeat itself, and I’m looking forward to lower taxes, increases in jobs, and consumer confidence.  In 2012.

 
http://www.glennbeck.com/content/articles/article/198/17808/

GLENN: Stop the music because we’re not going to have a pity party today. That’s not where we’re going. Today is not a day to have a pity party. Today is a day to look at this in perspective. Today is a day to turn the page, start all over again. Representative John Lewis said this yesterday, last night. Listen carefully to what he said.

REPRESENTATIVE LEWIS: When you really think about it, we have witnessed tonight in America again what I like to call a revolution of values, a revolution of ideas. There’s been a transformation of American politics and it will have unbelievable influence on the politics of the world.

GLENN: Okay. He’s exactly right. There was a revolution last night. It is the way America has revolutions. We don’t have them with guns. We don’t have them with violence. We have them at the voting booth, and it was a revolution last night.
Now, to say that it was a mandate, you’ve got to be out of your mind. I mean, right now Obama has 62,686,389 votes. Dan, how many votes did George Bush have?

DAN: Obviously since George Bush didn’t have a mandate, it was way less. 62,040,000 and change.

GLENN: Hang on just a second. But Obama had 62,686,389.

DAN: Yeah, that’s like a couple of hundred thousand more.

GLENN: Okay. So this was the revolution but it was the revolution of the other side. The Democrats have now been fully coopted by the left. There is half of the nation that has moved to the socialist left. That’s a bad thing. But the good thing is that now it is the right’s turn to find out who they are. The reason why Obama has 62 million, that’s not an insurmountable number. The reason why it’s 62 million is because the left didn’t have — I mean, sorry. The right didn’t have their stuff together. We don’t even know who we are. And it’s pretty hard to do. It’s pretty hard to do when you’ve got a bunch of leaders in your own party that are pulling against each other. It is time for the voice of the American people, the voice of the conservatives to be heard. You are going to get a lot of pressure. You are going to have a lot of people saying, “No, no, no, we’ve got to move farther left, we’ve got to move farther left.” No, we don’t. No, we don’t. That is exactly the move that the Republicans made with FDR and that’s what gave the United States of America a 40-year lock on congress with the Democrats because the Me Too Republicans showed up.

Listen to what we’re up against but listen to the reason why Obama — when everybody says, “Oh, well, Obama won; it was a mandate.” He won. He won resoundingly in the electoral college. But 55 million people rejected the redistribution handout politics of Obama. Obama won. Let’s give him credit. Ran the most effective, most expensive political machine ever. But in order to win, look what it took. First Obama had to break one of his very first campaign promises to limit financing to $84 million. Instead he had to raise over $650 million. We don’t know yet how many — and we may never — how much of that came from illegal donations. John McCain’s campaign was limited to $84 million and many states he was outspent 5:1, and it was this close. And remember John McCain was one of the worst presidential candidates conservatives could have ever fielded. Not only was McCain outspent, Obama’s unpaid television coverage was overwhelmingly positive. On the three network evening newscasts, 65% positive for Obama/Biden while coverage of McCain/Palin was 36%. And even though television companies readily accepted McCain’s cash to air his campaign commercials, they didn’t like the message. Between the end of the primaries and the end of October, network news broadcast 84 stories criticizing McCain ads and 32% had a negative tone towards Obama. Late night comedians targeted McCain/Palin for jokes, jabs, putdowns seven times more than Barack Obama and Joe Biden. Remember that to get elected, Obama had to publicly repudiate all of his past positions or at least give lip service on guns, abortion, illegal immigration, school vouchers. At least verbally Obama had to move to the center to these issues, on these issues to win. More proof that we are not the country of Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid. More proof. How many people say he’s going to govern from the center, not from the left? I’m not saying that he would change how he feels on these issues or even how he’ll vote on them or how he will act as a President but like Bill Clinton, he had to at least talk like a conservative during the campaign. Obama was the media candidate. He appeared on over 50 magazine covers. He was on the front cover of time over six times. What was the last magazine cover you saw John McCain on? Oh, I remember. It was the one where they had the photographer shoot him in bad light, intentionally make him look evil. Oh, and I remember Palin. The last one I saw was, oh, yeah, the one that wasn’t air brushed and intentionally overexposed and cropped in so you could see every pore and flaw in her face.

Remember that John McCain was also not the choice of conservatives. He was the vote that was split between Mitt Romney and Mike Huckabee. That is the only reason he was the candidate. The base was not enthusiastic about McCain. 26% said they were excited to vote for him. 26% said they were excited to vote for him. 39% said they were voting for him as the lesser of two evils. I told you ever since I started in America we don’t elect people that we’re voting against someone else by voting for them. You win by voting for one-someone. Among Obama supporters, 52% were excite to do vote for him. Only 14%, they were voting for him as the lesser of two evils. John McCain, not the standard bearer of conservative principles. Huh. Why vote for liberalism light when you can have a real socialist.

How many people voted for Obama that were like, “You know what, I mean, let’s just go for it. He’s really going to do it.” McCain was not a conservative on illegal immigration. McCain was not a conservative on small government, the bailout, capitalism. The only thing he had a record on was earmarks. And America now knows earmarks are ridiculous. Earmarks are a drop in the bucket compared to everything else that’s piling up. It was John McCain that lost last night, the values and the principles of Ronald Reagan’s Republican party were not rejected because there was no candidate representing them. This election was not about values or social issues. Look at gay adoption. Look at gay marriage. Look at abortion. For the most part the traditional values, anything that was on a ballot that had traditional values at stake, the traditional values stood. Traditional marriage was upheld. Arizona rejected the weakening of its illegal immigration law. Do you remember the crowds that Sarah Palin drew, the enthusiasm that she generated? It took Jimmy Carter to give us Ronald Reagan.

I give the same warning to the Democrats that the Republicans after George Bush in 9/11: Be careful how far you push this pendulum up because if you take this pendulum and try to swing it so far up, the pendulum always swings back. And when it does, it goes back as far, if not farther than you just swung it. That’s what gave us Barack Obama. What gave us Barack Obama was the pushing of that pendulum so far, the wrapping of America in the flag and everything else and not really standing for anything. As they push this pendulum up, it’s going to swing. Mark my words, Democrats, it will swing just as far the other way. And what I said was the danger after September 11th: You interject hunger and fear; that pendulum can stop and it depends on who’s in power that grabs that pendulum. So while you may be happy today about Barack Obama, be careful what you do because we don’t want an extremist on either end to grab the pendulum. We’ve got to bring the pendulum and stop it swinging so far and bring it closer to the center. We are not that different. We are not the country of Nancy Pelosi. We are not the country of Jerry Falwell. We’re the country of Ronald Reagan. Remember the Ronald Reagan Democrats. That’s who we are.

Am I Being Punk’d?

Posted by Sandra on November 5, 2008

Ashton?  Where are you?

I mean, how can this be?

No parent would’ve put his name on her ballot – he thinks babies are “punishment” and doesn’t mind them being thrown in the trash (ALIVE!!).  Better yet, he thinks it’s okay to scramble their brains when they’re partially born, THEN throw them in the trash.  So this can’t be it.

No person serving the military would’ve marked this man – he wants to take away their funding, which means they may end up with even worse benefits, or be out of a job altogether!  So nope, not that…

No one who has worked hard to succeed would’ve marked his name – he wants to take YOUR success and give it to some lazy ass who won’t try hard to succeed on their own.  So it can’t be those that have good jobs.

Can’t be anyone that believes in the Constitution – specifically owning a gun.  This liar only wants the bad guys to have them, by making them “illegal”.  So can’t be you.

Can’t be Patriotic Americans either.  This is the guy that hates America.  He gave money to a guy for 20 years that preached it.   I mean, his wife wasn’t even proud to be an American until a few months ago!  Nope.

No one who lives in America would want it – without the military we’re naked.  Terrorists will eat this up.  So anyone who wants to live in freedom without war on our turf wouldn’t vote for him.

Can’t be Christians or other people that believe in a higher god.  No way would they vote for a man that has a mentor that thinks the White God should be killed.  Hmm.

This doesn’t leave many people left that would’ve marked this Marxist Racist America-Hating Liar down… so how did the numbers end up this way?  I mean, last night I heard interviews where people said, “Oh, yes, I voted fo him cuz he’s black!  Hallelujah!!!”, and the old, “I won’ have to worry about paying fo my house now!!”, and things like that… but is that really the majority of voters?  If so, our country was fucked before the election, now it’s just MORE fucked.

My husband thinks this is a good thing.  Thinks it’s a “lesson”.  That we’ll all see how bad an idiot can screw up and maybe next time morons won’t go in all glassy-eyed and disillusioned over a rock star, and vote for the real person capable of running our country.  He has a point, but can we afford this lesson?

 

Ashton?  Where are you?  This has to be a joke.  After all, the winner of the election is.

Voter Suppression

Posted by Sandra on November 4, 2008

It’s not just the dead atheist goldfish Obama voters we have to be wary of, although they are a growing constituency of his in Ohio.

We on the right are being besieged by a constant barrage of negativity from the MSM that can have very real consequences. It’s called Media Induced Voter Suppression and it may have played a big part in recent elections.

You’ve seen evidence of it in recent weeks. If you’re a McCain-Palin supporter the press has all but told you to open a vein and be done with it already.

The MSM drumbeat whips out its exit polls on election day to send Republicans heading for the twelve-pack and the couch rather than the voting booth. It may very well be the real reason that Florida ended up being so close in 2000.

The above linked page details the history and the effects of Media Induced Voter Suppression. It explains very well why we shouldn’t pay attention to what we’re hearing and keep making sure everyone votes.

This is all courtesy of the excellent Ballotpedia, which is also a fantastic resource for any last minute info you need about your state’s ballot initiatives before you head to the polls.

Vote. Remember that the exit polls were all telling us to prepare for a President Kerry in 2004. That lasted until the real votes were counted.

Fight the goldfish.

Notice to All Employees

Posted by Sandra on November 3, 2008

Notice to All Employees

As of November 5, 2008, when President Obama is officially elected into office, our company will install a few new policies which are in keeping with his new, inspiring issues of change and fairness:

  1. All salespeople will be pooling their sales and bonuses into a common pool that will be divided equally between all of you.  This will serve to give those of you who are underachieving a fair shake.
  2. All low level workers will be pooling their wages, including overtime, into a common pool, dividing it equally amongst you. This will help those who are too busy for overtime to reap the rewards from those who have more spare time and can work extra hours.
  3. All top management will now be referred to as the government.  We will not participate in this pooling experience because the law doesn’t apply to us.
  4. The government will give eloquent speeches to all employees every week, encouraging its workers to continue to work hard for the good of all.
  5. The employees will be thrilled with these new policies because it’s good to spread the wealth.   Those of you who have underachieved will finally get an opportunity; those of you who have worked hard and had success will feel more patriotic.
  6. The last few people who were hired should clean out their desks. Don’t feel bad, though, because President Obama will give you free healthcare, free handouts, free oil for heating your home, free food stamps, and he’ll let you stay in your home for as long as you want even if you can’t pay your mortgage.  If you appeal directly to our democratic congress, you might even get a free flatscreen TV and a coupon for free haircuts. (Shouldn’t all Americans be entitled to nice looking hair?)
  7. If for any reason you are not happy with the new policies, you may want to rethink your vote on November 4th.

Gulp gulp gulp gulp… ahhh….

Yes, you won’t have to worry about it.  The hard working Americans that spread our wealth for the good of everyone will take care of you, hallelujah.  Go catch up on your soap operas.
