Leave Joe Alone, He Is Merely Representing the Administration’s True View

You have to love this guy. Who wouldn’t want to be a reporter able to follow him around on a daily basis? This weekend he called a custard shop manager a “smart ass” for asking him to lower taxes, but this is just one of a long line of brilliant moves by our VP. Let’s reminisce a little on Joe’s greatest hits:

#10 "A man I'm proud to call my friend. A man who will be the next President of the United States -- Barack America!"

#9 Biden encouraged viewers to visit a government-run Web site that tracks stimulus spending. When asked for the site's web address, Biden could not remember the site's "number."

"You know, I'm embarrassed. Do you know the Web site number?" he asked an aide standing out of view. "I should have it in front of me and I don't. I'm actually embarrassed."

#8 "I would tell members of my family, and I have, I wouldn't go anywhere in confined places right now," Biden said. "It's not that it’s going to Mexico, it's that you are in a confined aircraft when one person sneezes, it goes everywhere through the aircraft. That's me."

#7 and #6 "When the stock market crashed, Franklin D. Roosevelt got on the television and didn't just talk about the, you know, the princes of greed. He said, 'Look, here's what happened," he said.

Uh, Joe…Herbert Hoover was President and the television had not been invented.

#5 "Look, John's last-minute economic plan does nothing to tackle the number-one job facing the middle class, and it happens to be, as Barack says, a three-letter word: jobs. J-O-B-S, jobs."

#4 "Chuck, stand up, let the people see you," Biden shouted to State Senator Chuck Graham, before realizing, to his horror, that Graham uses a wheelchair. "Oh, God love ya," Biden said. "What am I talking about?"

#3 "God rest her soul," Biden said as he introduced Brian Cowen and Obama. Biden then realized his mother was, in fact, still living, and tried to fix it...

"Wait ... your mom's still, your mom is still alive. It was your dad (who) passed. God bless her soul. I gotta get this straight," Biden said.

#2 "This is a big f---ing deal," during the bill-signing ceremony for the health insurance overhaul

#1 "People, when I say that, look at me and say, 'What are you talking about, Joe? You're telling me we have to go spend money to keep from going bankrupt?" he said at a stop in Virginia. "The answer is yes."

To think the liberals used to make fun of Dan Quayle’s “potatoe” spelling makes this even more humorous. Getting back to the “Custard Caper”…

Since current polls reveal that 64% of Americans believe taxes need to be lowered, I suppose Loose Lips Joe is calling a large majority of the nation smartasses. Of course this is nothing new. When is the last time the Obama administration supported anything that was additionally supported by a majority of Americans? Since being elected this administration has regularly strong-armed the majority of Americans and forced them to accept the policies formulated by a radical leftist fringe element which rarely tops 20% of Americans support.

The administration has filed a suit against the state of Arizona for their illegal immigration bill; a bill supported by a large majority of Arizonans and the nation as a whole.

The administration force-fed the healthcare reform legislation in spite of the fact that a majority of Americans opposed it. Currently, 55% of Americans support repeal of this bill.

In spite of the spill in the Gulf, 58% of Americans support more off-shore oil drilling. The administration has used the disaster as a catalyst to stop the drilling.

Mortgage bailouts??? Twenty-three percent (23%) of Adults say if someone cannot afford to pay their increased mortgage payments, it's better for the government to assist them in making those payments. A majority (62%) believe it's better for the person to sell their home and move into a less expensive one. King Nanny State Supporter Obama loves to bail everyone out.

The Obama presidency has contradicted the Constitution as well as the wishes of mainstream Americans on so many occasions since being elected that nearly half of Americans now see the government as a threat to individual rights rather than a protector of those rights. This may be the most disturbing poll result of all.

By now Obama has to know his days are numbered and it is now just a matter of how much destruction and carnage he can cause before he and his congressional majority are voted away. I pray we still have some semblance of a nation when all is said and done.

In Memory of The U.S. Constitution...A Eulogy

What can I say about the U.S. Constitution that others do not already know. I am not sure I can find the proper words to describe the pain we are all feeling at it's passing.

Our Constitution had an amazing life even though it was rather short. It was the kind of friend that stands by you when you need somebody to be there. So many times in my life it protected me from tyranny, oppression, and corrupt government influence.

I remember once The Constitution shared with me that it's intent was not to define what rights I had as an individual, but was formed by the people of this nation to tell the government it's limitations in our lives. That was the selflessness and Godly inspired message of our Constitution.

What is it that we remember when we think of The Constitution? I think everyone who knew it very well would agree with me on this. The Constitution was by the people and for the people. It was the kind of constitution that would protect every individual's liberty at all costs. That is what I will truly miss about our Constitution. It could always make me feel in control of my own destiny when I feared the possibility of the government taking it away. It always gave me security that if I put forth the effort, I would be rewarded; and those that did not put forth the effort, would not. That was the trademark of Our Constitution. It always promoted equal opportunity to succeed on our own, rather than equal portions to all as deemed necessary by the government.

The Constitution's death was not sudden. It was a long, painful process that; unfortunately, could have been avoided. Many saw the warning signs of the sickness that took Our Constitution, but few wanted to take the extra effort needed to save it. Our Constitution was too young but as it slowly occurred to me I have realized that Our Constitution indeed lived it's life wonderfully. Our Constitution was well-loved and admired for many years, and it was painful to watch it slowly succumb the past century to the cancer of socialized laws which have created a welfare state in which people now feel entitled to whatever lifestyle they choose, compliments of the government; via the few who are still willing to work for a living. Welfare, Social Security, government healthcare. Ultimately, this is what stopped the "free market" heart of Our Constitution and caused it's death.

I will forever be grateful to have known The Constitution, as there has been no document before and will never be another document like it. I will forever be grateful that I was blessed enough to spend 38 years of my life with it. All the memories I have shared will forever be remembered and cherished. It will forever live in my heart.

Father's Day

I will make this quick, as I have a full day scheduled which consists of sitting around and being lazy. Ultimately, I think this is all that most fathers want for Father's Day.

I must say admit that I just woke up and if this post doesn't flow at all it is due to my lack of coffee intake.

I started to write this concerning the change in societies view of fathers recently. I still remember in the early 90's when men and fathers were basically labeled as unnecessary to a child's upbringing by the likes of Candice Bergen and many other liberal feminists. Funny how the thoughts have changed since then. The results of that little science experiment are beginning to trickle in and they are showing that children who have a father as an active participant in their raising and their lives are turning out to be much more balanced adults. Imagine that!!! Sorry feminazis of the world. Apparently a man is still necessary. Sorry to disappoint all of you .

Moving on, a break from politics...

It's Father's Day and it reminds me each year that I was blessed with an amazing father. I attribute so much of the success I've had in my life to how well he raised me.

My father has been, and always will be, the most admired person I know. He has not changed or waivered over the years. He began as my father and still plays the role to this day. He has taught me so much in my life and continues to teach me. He has never lowered himself into the role of "buddy" or "friend", but has always remained in the more difficult and responsible role of "father." I cannot thank him enough for that. he has always wielded a firm hand to keep me on the straight and narrow, but has also gone out of his way to show compassion and love for me.

He is the most amazing man I know and always will be. He practices what he preaches...he "is who he is" and does not apologize for it. He says what he means and means what he says. He is exactly the type of man that our current society is trying to get rid of. 100% stubborn alpha-male. A dying breed, for sure...I have been truly blessed to have this man in my life and thank God for each day I am able to spend with him. We have fished, hunted, watched football, shot pool, camped, water skiied, gone to the horse races, played poker, worked on cars, mowed lawns, built fences, etc. He can brighten or ruin my day still by the mere expression of approval or disapproval on his face. I will never be able to thank him enough for what he has meant to my life and my success. I work hard to represent to my children what he represents to me, but his shoes are most assuredly too big to fill.

For those who have or had a father like this, you know exactly what I mean, and are certainly just as grateful. Happy Father's Day to all

The Cost Of Freedom...We Can Learn So Much From Those Who Came Before Us

I'm reposting this because A) it's my blog, B) I like Frederick Douglass, and C) not enough people viewed it the first time I posted it.

I was enjoying a beautiful day outside today, reading "The American Patriots Almanac" which is packed with great history. I came across a speech which was given by the abolitionist, Frederick Douglass which, at the time, foreshadowed the Civil War. I find in this speech so much wisdom that still applies today, and have included portions of the speech below:

The general sentiment of mankind is that a man who will not fight for himself, when he has the means of doing so, is not worth being fought for by others, and this sentiment is just. For a man who does not value freedom for himself will never value it for others, or put himself to any inconvenience to gain it for others...

The whole history of the progress of human liberty shows that all concessions yet made to her august claims have been born of earnest struggle. The conflict has been exciting, agitating, all-absorbing, and for the time being, putting all other tumults to silence. It must do this or it does nothing. If there is no struggle there is no progress. Those who profess to favor freedom and yet deprecate agitation are men who want crops without plowing up the ground; they want rain without thunder and lightning. They want the ocean without the awful roar of its many waters.

This struggle may be a moral one, or it may be a physical one, and it may be both moral and physical, but it must be a struggle. Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will. Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have found out the exact measure of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them, and these will continue till they are resisted with either words or blows, or with both. The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress.

That last line I highlighted hit me the hardest. Whatever we are willing to let happen to us without a fight, that is precisely what rulers will impose upon us. To what point is everyone willing to let this nation degrade to without a fight...that is precisely the point the government will push us to...deep thoughts.

Obama Needs Another 50 Billion To Save Jobs...C'mon, What's Another 50 Billion??

President Obama is asking for another 50 billion dollars, claiming we have to give it to him so he can save jobs. Makes complete sense to me. After all, the 750 billion worked so well in the other stimulus...aka paybacks to his cronies for their strong-armed support in the election. What's the big idea. When you really look at the big picture, he's already put our grandchildren 13 trillion (with a "T") dollars in debt...what's a mere 50 billion? We won't even notice it.

Helen Thomas...Anti-Semitic Douchebag of the Week

Funny how they all come out of the closet and go public with their hate when they feel safe to. Hmmm...why would Helen feel safe to express this type of hatred? Could it be that our administration has given everyone the idea that this is how they pretty much feel as well?
