Was the Oath an Omen?

Do you remember this? Obama and the Chief Justice having a "do-over" because they screwed the oath of office up on inauguration day. I was thinking, this is not a good sign!

And how that portentous sign has been coming true. I wanted to wait for the first 100 days to be over before I wrote about them, but how much more do we have to see to know that this guy, and his hand picked minions, don't have the first clue on how to run a hot dog stand, let alone the world's largest, strongest and most powerful nation. At least it is for now.

Let's take a walk down the short but very filled memory lane of President Obama's first 100 days....errrr.... or so.

After fumbling the opening kickoff, he goes back and takes the oath of office, but as you can see, no bible....oooops.

Then for an opening play, he turns the ball over to our opponents, the friendly jihadists down in Gitmo. He stops all trials and then says we will have 365 days to close the place down. And we're going to keep these wonderful folks where?!

( on a red flag, official time out, we're reviewing the play, and.....yes, we did, we did get information that saved thousands of lives, and, wait......yes, yes, we will be prosecuting the Bush administration officials that authorised the use of "harsh" interrogation techniques to get that info. Now back to you in booth)

Now, back to the game, and how expensive this game has become, when Great Leader gets his $800+ Billion dollar "stimulus" bill passed, that really, do you feel the least bit stimulated right now? Did we have to do something, maybe, but this bill was the worst thing that could have happened. 80% of these funds won't be spent until 2010, and that's stimulus how? It got whittled down to around $700 Billion, whew!, but that was just the start.

To through in a oldie but a goodie, he just went ahead and reversed the ban on the use of Federal funds for abortions performed in countries other than ours, namely Mexico. Now that he let us see that he's playing from the tried and true liberal, demo play book, we can see the game plan forming, but we can't seem do anything about what was coming.

Now, back down to the sidelines, and here's Obama with his first interview, oh but wait, it's not with us, it's with another reporter, an Arabic news reporter, let's see if we can hear some of what is being said........."arrogant" yes, yes, we heard the word arrogant, who could have seen that one coming? Back to you upstairs...

Well, I'm sure that was the last time we are going to hear that word.

Okay, back to the game. The ball is on the 20, the G20, and that play went over like a Led Zeppelin. Going to England and first making a fool of himself, and the First Lady, by touching the queen, wow, can you say....faux pas. And this after he "disses" the PM of England, Gordan Brown, by giving him DVDs as his gift for his first visit to the White house. Nothing says "Harvard educated" like a gift of movies to an almost blind man.Then, with 2 minutes to go until half time, Obama stages a big play, going on a European tour trying to drum up support for our war in Afghanistan. And how does he inspire the free world to follow him down the field, he starts slamming his own team.

Nothing like going over to the other side of the field, and telling your opponent that they have been wronged, and it was our team's fault that they have suffered. You know, it's because of all of our arrogance, yikes, there's that word again.

And now a word from our sponsor, Pontiac......what......NOOOOOO......really, not going to be made any more.......that sucks. I know a few folks that are going to be really bummed about that one. Well, back to the game.

Oh, here's another report from the side lines, Obama is now in the other team's huddle, shaking hands and giving those pearly whites a workout. Look at him go; there's Ortega spouting on about how bad our team is, and there's Obama, just listening, he's such a good listener. And there's Chavez, going in for the hand shake and.......yes, there it is, Oh! and not just any hand shake, he got the "what'sup my broth'a from another moth'a" hand shake and the "catch ya lat'a" look from his new friend the "prezzz".

Let's see what other teams these guys have been on before; Nice.

Now this guy plays fair, never cheats, and always shake hands after the game, of course unless you're a Jew.
There's a lot we didn't get to see on this highlight film of these first 100 days of Pres. Obama, but hey, the hits just keep coming. The first 100 days, that means, on the bright side, there are 100 day fewer to the next election, one where we can maybe select some new draft picks, and bring in some veteran players as well. But for now, we must press on, keeping an eye on the game at hand. Let's call penalties when we see them, and a pat on the butt for something he may do right, you know, the blind hog and the nut story, and let's make it through this together. Go Team GO!

How Can We Keep the Party Moving....?

With over 500,000 patriots coming together last Wednesday, April 15th, we saw the voice of a movement rising up and becoming stronger. The "Tea Parties" as they were called, sprang from a ground swell of the voting public that has seen their views devalued by not just the majority power in Washington D.C., the Democrats, but also by most of their own party, the Republicans. As I have mentioned in past posts, I have stayed true to my conservative values, but my party, the Republican party has seen fit to veer off course. They oppose most of what is being done right now by the Demo leaders in Washington, but they were doing much of it themselves the first 6 years of the Bush administration, all be it not to this extent. So I have made a decision, one that I think many of us that have participated, in person or in support, in the "Tea Party" movement should consider as a way to make our voices heard and become even more powerful.

I have left the Republican party, not for the Demo party, that could never happen, and not to the Libertarian party or Green or any other party. I have registered as an "Independent". It seemed that the media always referred to the independents, in the middle, as the voters that will make or break an election. So why not join them, they seem to have the power, don't they. And I propose to make this, becoming an "Independent", part of our Tea party movement. Here's how;

We become the "I.T. Party", which stands for the "Independent Tea Party" It's not an official political party, but an Independent voters movement. The two party system is failing us right now, it may get back on track, but for now both parties, well... suck!

And think about it, I.T., it sounds so intellectually technical, and it's very easy to spell, anyone that knows me knows how important that is for me. But the true meaning of it, I mean I.T., is the shouting of our collective voices, as individuals, saying listen to us, each of us, we matter, I matter. For our voices to be heard we need to break free of what we are comfortable doing, selecting the lesser of two evils, or voting down the party line with the feeling that this party is closer to my values but not really close; and hopefully we can make a choice of someone that thinks, Independently, about what is right, as in righteous, and not about what is right or left, or what will keep their job approval high or other B.S.; but independent thought about what is right for America.

I propose a simple sign for our movement, the Tea bag with "I.T. Party" as its logo. If enough voters change to "Independent", then the parties will have to listen, because it will be us, those non-affiliated voters, that they will be trying to win over.

So join the "I.T. Party" the Independent Tea Party today, so we can be heard by the parties that be in Washington.

And it all started with this Rick Stantelli rant on Chicago Stock exchange:

Enough is Enough, GB states it Brilliantly!

It can't be said much better than this, Glenn Beck standing in front of 15,000 law abiding, law loving and peaceful folks, tells it like I'd like to say it. I wasn't able to attend yesterdays rallies, but I am in awe of how many people came together, sounding as one and as individuals, telling Washington that Enough Is Enough!

But yet, try and find coverage of this in our local paper's online web site, it's not there. I'm talking about the Orlando "Slantinel" Sentinel. We had a good crowd looking at the pictures from high in a building next to City Hall, where is was held. But try to find coverage on the web site, I refuse to purchase the litter-box liner, and you will not find a peep.

Today, Glenn Beck mentioned on his show that the crowd, 2 hours before the start of the event was about 4,500, and that is what was reported in the San Antonio news. But at the start of the event the crowd, estimated by the local police, swelled to 15,000. And this is just one of so many examples of the media trying to quell the news about this, but they can't. This will not stop, this will carry over to July 4th, and then 9-11, and it will keep growing until we do go to Washington, and literally surround them, the congress, by our presence, marching on that town like the Boston citizens charging the British merchant ships, back in 1773. We will through the bums out like an old stale keg of English tea.

Keeping the Solders In Our Prayers...

Ladies and Gentlemen - General David Leakey Col Commandant of the Royal Tank Regiment and at present serving at NATO sent the following which I hope will move you as much as it moved me.

Read and pass on please. 'Last week I was in West London attending a conference. While I was in the airport, returning home, I heard several people behind me beginning to clap and cheer. I immediately turned around and witnessed one of the greatest acts of patriotism I have ever seen.

Moving through the terminal was a group of soldiers in their uniforms, as they began heading to their gate everyone (well almost everyone) was abruptly to their feet with their hands waving and cheering..When I saw the soldiers, probably 30-40 of them, being applauded and cheered for, it hit me. I'm not alone. I'm not the only red blooded Briton who still loves this country and supports our troops and their families.

Of course I immediately stopped and began clapping for these young unsung heroes who are putting their lives on the line everyday for us so we can go to school, work, and enjoy our home without fear or reprisal.

Just when I thought I could not be more proud of my country or of our service men and women a young girl, not more than 6 or 7 years old, ran up to one of the male soldiers. He knelt down and said 'hi,' the little girl then asked him if he would give something to her daddy for her. The young soldier didn't look any older than maybe 22 himself, said he would try and what did she want to give to her daddy.

Suddenly the little girl grabbed the neck of this soldier, gave him the biggest hug she could muster and then kissed him on the cheek. The mother of the little girl, who said her daughters name was Courtney, told the young soldier that her husband was a Corporal and had been in Afghanistan for 5 months now. As the mum was explaining how much her daughter, Courtney, missed her father, the young soldier began to tear up.

When this temporarily single mum was done explaining her situation, all of the soldiers huddled together for a brief second. Then one of the other servicemen pulled out a military looking walkie-talkie. They started playing with the device and talking back and forth on it.

After about 10-15 seconds of this, the young soldier walked back over to Courtney, bent down and said this to her, 'I spoke to your daddy and he told me to give this to you.' He then hugged this little girl that he had just met and gave her a Kiss on the cheek. He finished by saying 'Your daddy told me to tell you that he loves you more than anything and he is coming home very soon.' The mum at this point was crying almost uncontrollably and as the young soldier stood to his feet he saluted Courtney and her mum.

I was standing no more than 6 feet away as this entire event unfolded. As the soldiers began to leave, heading towards their gate, people resumed their applause. As I stood there applauding and looked around, there were very few dry eyes, including my own.

That young soldier in one last act of moment turned around and blew a kiss to Courtney with a tear rolling down his cheek. We need to remember everyday all of our soldiers and their families and thank God for them and their sacrifices. At the end of the day, it's good to be an Englishman.'

This was a story about an English solder, I know, but it just proves to me the quality of the men and women that volunteer for the military, here, and as you've just read, in England as well. It makes me feel better about what are solders are going through, knowing that we have friends like these British solders standing by their side.

G20: France and Germany throw down the gauntlet

Nicolas Sarkozy and Angela Merkel challenge world leaders to come away from the G20 summit with stricter financial agreements as they called for 'hard and fast results'

What has this world come to? We now look to France and Germany for leadership in the economic crisis we find the world in today. Sarkozy and Merkel are looking to take the reins in London at the G20, and I say...Good. Don't let Obama or Brown near any more checkbooks.

Looking at how Pres. Obama is handling his world affairs, DVD's to PM Brown, and as a good friend of mine put it; "The fickin' eejit gave her an iPod. Azzole." Speaking of the gift Great Leader gave her Royal Highness, the Queen of England. Hey, I'd say he's really improving our image and respect around the world that was lost by Pres. Bush. Truly, what an Azzole!

How Much Is Too Much Mr. Cogressman?

Thanks BAHL for posting this great Fox News clip, showing the world what an out - n - out sleaze ball Alan Grayson really is. Trying to use the Constitution to excuse this Big Brother law, and not being able to tell Mr. Cavuto what the law he past considers excessive pay. All he talks about is the populist stance of taking on the big exec's that brought down companies and got big bonuses. And he accuses Neil of supporting the big bonuses, using the tactics that he talked about in his interview with Byron York that I posted about yesterday. He doesn't even acknowledge the fact that all, that is ALL, employees are covered under this law.

I am reading Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand right now, on page 541, just over half way through, and this man would be a perfect pick for any of the looter class characters that have taken the country down the path of socialism and use the laws to gain and maintain power. They always answer questions with questions, never telling you straight forward what they want to say, but always insinuate and use language that, if cornered, can give them an out. I only wish that the outcome I'm sure will take place in the book will be the outcome for Mr. Grayson and the bottom feeders like him. Any person that thinks it's governments place to say what a private business pays its employees is a man that has no place overseeing anyone at anytime, especially in the halls of congress. Work with me please to make sure Congressman Grayson's first term is his last term in office.
