Political Stuff and other fowl smelling things!

Post by jmunsey on Mon Apr 04, 2011 11:18 am

A Harley biker is riding by the zoo in Washington , DC when he sees a little girl leaning into the lion's cage.

Suddenly, the lion grabs her by the cuff of her jacket and tries to pull her
Inside to slaughter her, under the eyes of her screaming parents.

The biker jumps off his Harley, runs to the cage and hits the lion square on the nose with a powerful punch.

Whimpering from the pain the lion jumps back letting go of the girl, and the biker brings her to her terrified parents, who thank him endlessly.

A reporter has watched the whole event. The reporter addressing the Harley rider says, 'Sir, this was the most gallant and brave thing I've seen a man do in my whole life.'

The Harley rider replies, 'Why, it was nothing, really, the lion was behind bars. I just saw this little kid in danger and acted as I felt right.'

The reporter says, 'Well, I'll make sure this won't go unnoticed. I'm a journalist, and tomorrow's paper will have this story on the front page...
So, what do you do for a living and what political affiliation do you have?'

The biker replies, 'I'm a U.S. Marine and a Republican.'

The journalist leaves.

The following morning the biker buys the paper to see news of his actions, and reads, on the front page:





U.S. MARINE ASSAULTS

AFRICAN IMMIGRANT

AND STEALS HIS LUNCH



That pretty much sums up the media's approach to the news these days

Tuesday 0900 sharp , same conversation from both men

Wednesday 0900 sharp , again same conversation

Thursday 0900 sharp , same conversation again , with the Marine adding the following :

"Sir , for the past three mornings at 0900 sharp I have told you that Mr Clinton is no longer in the White House"

The elderly gentleman replies :

"I know that son , but your reply sounds so good to me"

Marine snaps to attention , salutes the elderly gentleman

Two Birds, One Stone
Libya wants a new Muslim leader. I say give them ours.

Solves 2 problems.

President's Day
While out eating lunch recently, I overheard a conversation between a mother and her young son.

"What is tomorrow?" she asked him.

"It's President's Day," the boy replied

"What does that mean?" she asked.

The boy paused thoughtfully for a moment, and responded, "President's Day is when Obama steps out of the White House and if he sees his shadow, we have 2 more years of unemployment and stupidity."

I almost snorted my iced tea.

Just as true today as it was when his book first came out.
He was, and still is, a brilliant businessman!
Often we need to be reminded of Iacocca's words.




Remember Lee Iacocca, the man who rescued Chrysler Corporation from its death throes? He's now 82 years old and has a new book, 'Where Have All The Leaders Gone?'.

Lee Iacocca Says:
'Am I the only guy in this country who's fed up with what's happening? Where the hell is our outrage with this so called president? We should be screaming bloody murder! We've got a gang of tax cheating clueless leftists trying to steer our ship of state right over a cliff, we've got corporate gangsters stealing us blind, and we can't even run a ridiculous cash-for-clunkers program without losing $26 billion of the taxpayers' money, much less build a hybrid car. But instead of getting mad, everyone sits around and nods their heads when the politicians say, 'trust me, the economy is getting better..' Better? You've got to be kidding. This is America , not the damned 'Titanic'. I'll give you a sound bite: 'Throw all the Democrats out, along with Obama!'

You might think I'm getting senile, that I've gone off my rocker, and maybe I have. But someone has to speak up. I hardly recognize this country anymore..

The most famous business leaders are not the innovators but the guys in handcuffs.. While we're fiddling in Afghanistan , Iran is completing their nuclear bombs and missiles and nobody seems to know what to do. And the liberal press is waving 'pom-poms' instead of asking hard questions. That's not the promise of the ' America ' my parents and yours traveled across the ocean for. I've had enough. How about you?
I'll go a step further. You can't call yourself a patriot if you're not outraged. This is a fight I'm ready and willing to have. The Biggest 'C' is Crisis! (Iacocca elaborates on nine C's of leadership, with crisis being the first.)



Leaders are made, not born. Leadership is forged in times of crisis. It's easy to sit there with thumb up your ass and talk theory. Or send someone else's kids off to war when you've never seen a battlefield yourself. It's another thing to lead when your world comes tumbling down.
On September 11, 2001, we needed a strong leader more than any other time in our history. We needed a steady hand to guide us out of the ashes. A hell of a mess, so here's where we stand.

We're immersed in a bloody war now with no plan for winning and no plan for leaving.. But our soldiers are dying daily.
We're running the biggest deficit in the history of the world, and it's getting worse every day!

We've lost the manufacturing edge to Asia , while our once-great companies are getting slaughtered by health care costs.
Gas prices are going to skyrock again, and nobody in power has a lucid plan to open drilling to solve the problem. This country has the largest oil reserves in the WORLD, and we cannot drill for it because the politicians have been bought by the flea-hugging environmentalists.

Our schools are in a complete disaster because of the teachers' union.
Our borders are like sieves and they want to give all illegal's amnesty and free healthcare.
The middle class is being squeezed to death every day.
These are times that cry out for leadership.
But when you look around, you've got to ask: 'Where have all the leaders gone?' Where are the curious, creative communicators? Where are the people of character, courage, conviction, omnipotence, and common sense? I may be a sucker for alliteration, but I think you get the point..

Name me a leader who has a better idea for homeland security than making us take off our shoes in airports and throw away our shampoo?
We've spent billions of dollars building a huge new bureaucracy, and all we know how to do is react to things that have already happened.
Everyone's hunkering down, fingers crossed, hoping the government will make it better for them. Now, that's just crazy. Deal with life.



Name me an industry leader who is thinking creatively about how we can restore our competitive edge in manufacturing. Who would have believed that there could ever be a time when 'The Big Three' referred to Japanese car companies? How did this happen, and more important, look what Obama did about it!
Name me a government leader who can articulate a plan for paying down the debt, or solving the energy crisis, or managing the health care problem. The silence is deafening. But these are the crises that are eating away at our country and milking the middle class dry.



I have news for the Chicago gangsters in Congress. We didn't elect you to turn this country into a losing European Socialist state. What is everybody so afraid of? That some bonehead on NBC or CNN news will call them a name? Give me a break. Why don't you guys show some spine for a change?

Had Enough? Hey, I'm not trying to be the voice of gloom and doom here. I'm trying to light a fire. I'm speaking out because I have hope - I believe in America .. In my lifetime, I've had the privilege of living through some of America 's greatest moments. I've also experienced some of our worst crises: The 'Great Depression,' 'World War II,' the 'Korean War,' the 'Kennedy Assassination,' the 'Vietnam War,' the 1970's oil crisis, and the struggles of recent years since 9/11.


Make your own contribution by sending this to everyone you know and care about. It's our country, folks, and it's our future. Our future is at stake!!

Attention!!!!! BFM





The Washington Post

The Arctic ocean is warming up, icebergs are growing scarcer and in some places the seals are finding the water too hot, according to a report to the Commerce Department yesterday from Consulafft, at Bergen , Norway . Reports from fishermen, seal hunters and explorers all point to a radical change in climate conditions and hitherto unheard-of temperatures in the Arctic zone. Exploration expeditions report that scarcely any ice has been met as far north as 81 degrees 29 minutes. Soundings to a depth of 3,100 meters showed the gulf stream still very warm. Great masses of ice have been replaced by moraines of earth and stones, the report continued, while at many points well known glaciers have entirely disappeared.

Very few seals and no white fish are found in the eastern Arctic, while vast shoals of herring and smelts which have never before ventured so far north, are being encountered in the old seal fishing grounds. Within a few years it is predicted that due to the ice melt the sea will rise and make most coastal cities uninhabitable.

====================
I apologize, I neglected to mention that this report was from November 2, 1922. As reported by the AP and published inThe Washington Post - 88 years ago!




I confirmed this with Snopes. It is true. It was printed in 1922.

WOW! And all this time I thought “Al gore” invented global warmingJ. Is he older than we thought?

These are possibly the 5 best sentences you'll ever read:
1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity.
2. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving..
3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.
4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.
5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my friend is the beginning of the end of any society.
REMEMBER... IN NOVEMBER 2012, WE HAVE A GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY TO CLEAN OUT THE ENTIRE HOUSE AND ONE-THIRD OF THE SENATE!

Are you sitting down? OK here's the bombshell.
Global Warming----Climate Change

Ian Rutherford Plimer (born 12 February 1946) is an Australian geologist,
academic and businessman, and professor of mining geology at the University
of Adelaide . You will appreciate his take on climate change
(aka: global warming).

Professor Ian Plimer could not have said it better! If you've read his book
you will agree, this is a good summary.


Are you sitting down?

Okay, here's the bombshell. The volcanic eruption in Iceland , since its
first spewing of volcanic ash has, in just FOUR DAYS, NEGATED EVERY SINGLE
EFFORT you have made in the past five years to control CO2 emissions on our
planet - all of you.

Of course you know about this evil carbon dioxide that we are trying to
suppress - it's that vital chemical compound that every plant requires to
live and grow, and to synthesize into oxygen for us humans, and all animal
life.

I know, it's very disheartening to realize that all of the carbon emission
savings you have accomplished while suffering the inconvenience and expense
of: driving Prius hybrids, buying fabric grocery bags, sitting up till
midnight to finish your kid's "The Green Revolution" science project,
throwing out all of your non-green cleaning supplies, using only two squares
of toilet paper, putting a brick in your toilet tank reservoir, selling your
SUV and speedboat, vacationing at home instead of abroad, nearly getting hit
every day on your bicycle, replacing all of your 50 cents light bulbs with
$10.00 light bulbs . .. . well, all of those things you have done have all
gone down the tubes in just four days.

The volcanic ash emitted into the Earth's atmosphere in just four days - yes
- FOUR DAYS ONLY by that volcano in Iceland , has totally erased every single
effort you have made to reduce the evil beast, carbon. And there are around
200 active volcanoes on the planet spewing out this crud any one time -
EVERY DAY.

I don't really want to rain on your parade too much, but I should mention
that when the volcano Mt Pinatubo erupted in the Philippines in 1991, it
spewed out more greenhouse gases into the atmosphere than the entire human
race had emitted in its entire YEARS on earth. Yes folks, Mt Pinatubo was
active for over one year - think about it.

Of course I shouldn't spoil this touchy-feelly tree-hugging moment and
mention the effect of solar and cosmic activity and the well-recognized
800-year global heating and cooling cycle, which keep happening, despite our
completely insignificant efforts to affect climate change.

And I do wish I had a silver lining to this volcanic ash cloud but the fact
of the matter is that the bush fire season across the western USA and
Australia this year alone will negate your efforts to reduce carbon in our
world for the next two to three years. And it happens every year.

Just remember that your government just tried to impose a whopping carbon
tax on you on the basis of the bogus "human-caused" climate change scenario.

Hey, isn't it interesting how they don't mention "Global Warming" any more,
but just "Climate Change" - you know why? It's because the planet has COOLED
by 0.7 degrees in the past century and these global warming bull artists got
caught with their pants down.

And just keep in mind that you might yet have an Emissions Trading Scheme -
that whopping new tax - imposed on you, that will achieve absolutely nothing
except make you poorer. It won't stop any volcanoes from erupting, that's
for sure.

But hey, relax, give the world a hug and have a nice day!

PS: I wonder if Iceland is buying carbon offsets?

Obama Care Highlighted by Page Number

THE CARE BILL HB 3200


THIS IS THE 2ND OFFICIAL WHO HAS OUTLINED THESE PARTS OF THE CARE BILL.
Judge Kithil of Marble Falls, TX - highlighted the most egregious pages of HB3200

Please read this........ especially the reference to pages 58 & 59


JUDGE KITHIL wrote:

** Page 50/section 152: The bill will provide insurance to all non-U.S. residents, even if they are here illegally.

** Page 58 and 59: The government will have real-time access to an individual's bank account and will have the authority to make electronic fund transfers from those accounts.

** Page 65/section 164: The plan will be subsidized (by the government) for all union members, union retirees and for community organizations (such as the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now - ACORN).

** Page 203/line 14-15: The tax imposed under this section will not be treated as a tax. (How could anybody in their right mind come up with that?)

** Page 241 and 253: Doctors will all be paid the same regardless of specialty, and the government will set all doctors' fees.

** Page 272. section 1145: Cancer hospital will ration care according to the patient's age.

** Page 317 and 321: The government will impose a prohibition on hospital expansion; however, communities may petition for an exception.

** Page 425, line 4-12: The government mandates advance-care planning consultations. Those on Social Security will be required to attend an "end-of-life planning" seminar every five years. (Death counseling..)

** Page 429, line 13-25: The government will specify which doctors can write an end-of-life order.
HAD ENOUGH???? Judge Kithil then goes on to identify:

"Finally, it is specifically stated that this bill will not apply to members of Congress. Members of Congress are already exempt from the Social Security system, and have a well-funded private plan that covers their retirement needs. If they were on our Social Security plan, I believe they would find a very quick 'fix' to make the plan financially sound for their future."
- Honorable David Kithil of Marble Falls, Texas
All of the above should give you the point blank ammo you need to support your opposition to Obamacare. Please send this information on to all of your email contacts.

Income Redistribution: Obamanomics in Action
The truth always comes out, as Barack Obama is discovering. Despite having the Leftmedia in his corner, his epic mishandling of the economy is coming to light, and people are taking notice. The economy added a paltry 18,000 jobs in June, "far less than expected." (Who are these experts that continue putting forth wrong expectations?) This follows just 25,000 added in May, and, for the second straight month, the unemployment rate increased -- to 9.2 percent.

Things aren't so bad for members of Obama's staff, though. The administration recently released a report confirming that 454 White House aides will earn a whopping $37,121,463 this year. By law, the information must be made public, but the ever-savvy Obama released the information on Friday afternoon before the July 4th holiday weekend. Obama said that those salaries had been "frozen," but apparently that means that only 75 percent of staffers got raises between 2009 and 2010. The average increase was about 15 percent.

The report also excluded the identities of the 41 Obama staffers who owe $831,000 in back taxes. One would think a president so outraged at the tax breaks afforded to "millionaires, billionaires and corporate jet owners" would have a zero tolerance for this sort of thing.

Also late Friday afternoon, the White House's Council of Economic Advisers released some interesting literature -- a report on the impact of the stimulus. The three advisers, handpicked by Obama himself, tried to sugarcoat the numbers, but the results are clear: The 2.4 million jobs that the stimulus has allegedly "saved or created" have cost, er, $666 billion, which comes out to $278,000 per job. The most telling part of all this is that six months ago, the stimulus had supposedly saved 2.7 million jobs. In other words, it's now leeching jobs from the economy instead of adding them.

Some of those jobs may be coming from the banking industry. Banks across the country -- including the country's largest, Bank of America -- are closing branches left and right. In fact, for the first time in 15 years, they're closing them faster than they can open them. For Obama, self-proclaimed champion of the poor, this exposes another ironic truth: Low-income communities could be those most affected by the closures.

Regulatory Commissars: Clogging the Jobs Pipeline
It's no surprise when the Environmental Protection Agency stands in the way of job creation because it happens with such regularity. However, in the case of Keystone XL, a proposed pipeline to transport diluted bitumen from Alberta, Canada, to Gulf Coast refineries, even the State Department is complicit in blocking new jobs. TransCanada applied for the proper permits in September 2008, but has been stymied by the EPA and State Department despite the fact that Canada has been piping crude oil into the U.S. for decades.

In fairness, the State Department appeared ready to approve the pipeline after a 90-day comment period, but the EPA objected, asking State to offer more information, which it did after another 90-day comment period. Still, it wasn't enough for the EPA, which rejected the report as "inadequate." EPA's objections would result in years of further study, and so the State Department is sitting on it.

TransCanada estimates that the pipeline would create 13,000 jobs -- and not just jobs, but union jobs for another Democrat constituency -- as well as 118,000 "spin-off" jobs during two years of construction. The company also says the pipeline would bring $20 billion in investment to the U.S., as well as $600 million in state and local tax revenue during construction and $5.2 billion in property taxes over its life. House Speaker John Boehner asked Barack Obama via Twitter, "Where are the jobs?" Part of the answer is sitting on the desks of State Department and EPA bureaucrats.

Second Amendment: Melson Testifies on Gunrunner
The scandal surrounding Operation Fast and Furious (also known as Project Gunrunner), the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives' program to "track" gun purchases heading to Mexico, deepened this week. On July 4, acting ATF Director Kenneth Melson testified before House and Senate investigators without the knowledge of the ATF or the Department of Justice. According to Melson, in spite of denials from the Justice Department, ATF agents took no action when witnessing transfer of firearms from straw purchasers to third parties. He also testified that he was "not allowed to communicate to Congress," and that "Justice Department officials directed [ATF's senior leadership] not to respond and took full control of replying to briefing and document requests from Congress." During his confirmation hearings, then-acting Deputy Attorney General James Cole, who was confirmed on June 28, withheld important information from Congress. In other words, there has been a cover-up.

The White House has remained coy about what Barack Obama knew and when he knew it, but there's no question this scandal is bigger than the media are letting on. In fact, the whole project was funded by the stimulus. How many have to die with weapons illegally transferred to Mexico before there is justice?

TSA Nightmare Continues
The evidence of the incompetence of the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) just keeps rolling in. The recent case of a 95-year-old cancer patient forced to remove her adult diaper by TSA employees is now well known, but this week's story tops that. Olajide Oluwaseun Noibi is a 24-year-old Nigerian immigrant who was recently allowed to board a plane and fly from New York City to Los Angeles using an expired boarding pass that didn't have his name on it. Noibi apparently got his free ride using a Virgin American boarding pass that a New York resident had lost. Even though the pass was for June 23, Noibi used it on June 24 and easily cleared the TSA's checkpoint at JFK. His screener was suspicious enough to call her supervisor, but the supervisor didn't notice that the boarding pass was not for Noibi, so he continued to the gate, where the Virgin Atlantic gate agent then cleared him to board.

During the trip, passengers complained that Noibi smelled bad, and airline officials finally figured out that he was sitting in an unsold seat and they alerted authorities from the air. Los Angeles police, TSA officials, and an FBI agent met Noibi when the plane landed but, incredibly, he was released without being charged. Noibi was eventually arrested a week later for trying the same scheme to board a Delta flight from Los Angeles to Atlanta. He had more than 10 boarding passes in various people's names.

Meanwhile, the Obama administration warned airlines that terrorists might try to surgically implant explosives into people to try to beat airport security measures. Who knows what the TSA will have passengers do to clear that hurdle, but the safe money says it won't be foreign nationals that receive increased scrutiny. Rather, it will be normal American people, including the elderly and children, who feel the invasive hands of the TSA.

-b-b-but it's his fault ... Hestarted it".....



The Washington Post babbled again today about Obama inheriting a huge deficit from Bush. Amazingly enough, a lot of people swallow this nonsense. So once more, a short civics lesson.

Budgets do not come from the White House. They come from Congress and the party that controlled Congress since January 2007 is the Democratic Party.

Furthermore, the Democrats controlled the budget process for FY 2008 and FY 2009 as well as FY 2010 and FY 2011.

In that first year, they had to contend with George Bush, which caused them to compromise on spending, when Bush somewhat belatedly got tough on spending increases.

For FY 2009 though, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid bypassed George Bush entirely, passing continuing resolutions to keep government running until Barack Obama could take office. At that time, they passed a massive omnibus spending bill to complete the FY 2009 budgets.

And where was Barack Obama during this time? He was a member of that very Congress that passed all of these massive spending bills, and he signed the omnibus bill as President to complete FY 2009. Let's remember what the deficits looked like during that period: (below)


If the Democrats inherited any deficit, it was the FY 2007 deficit, the last of the Republican budgets. That deficit was the lowest in five years, and the fourth straight decline in deficit spending. After that, Democrats in Congress took control of spending, and that includes Barack Obama, who voted for the budgets.

If Obama inherited anything, he inherited it from himself.

In a nutshell, what Obama is saying is I inherited a deficit that I voted for and then I voted to expand that deficit four-fold since January 20th.


There is no way this will be widely publicized, Unless each of us sends it on! This is your chance to make a difference.

Stay Focused, Connected, Informed & Inspired... Also don 't forget to forward to everyone you know..

I don't care what your political persuasion might be...you cannot deny the wisdom of these thoughts and that they apply to our current situation in the U.S.


These are possibly the 5 best sentences you'll ever read:

1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity, by
legislating the wealth out of prosperity.

2. What one person receives without working for,
another person must work for without receiving.

3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that
the government does not first take from somebody else.

4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.

5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work, because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that is the beginning of the end of any nation.

Can you think of a reason for not sharing this?
Neither could I......

They sent my Census form back! AGAIN!!! In response to the question: "Do you have any dependents?" I replied - "12 million illegal immigrants; 3 million crack heads; 42 million unemployable people, 2 million people in over 243 prisons; Half of Mexico; and 535 more in the U.S. House and Senate. Apparently, this was NOT an acceptable answer
