I’m a wife, mom, daughter, sister and friend who believes I’m a work in progress and I express myself best with the written word—hence my blog was born. It’s a place where I can spew my views and sentiments ‘til my heart’s content, which will probably be never; so I have a lifetime whereupon I can fill it with presumptions, thoughts, provoking statements and maybe even a bit of humor, because I always try to remember it’s the journey, not the destination.
Obama is for Change alright. He’s going to change Washington, the economy, taxes, the poor, the middle class, the disenfranchised, the constitution---change, change,change. Since he has a lot of changing to do, he’s already started. He said he’s going to raise taxes on those who earn $250k a year or more. Then just the other day he said he was going to raise taxes on those who earn $200k a year. What? I thought it was $250k. Then Bidden said they were raising taxes on those who earn $150k a year. So, which is it Senator Change? Are you raising taxes on those who earn $250k, $200k or $150k? I can answer that. If Obama gets elected he’s going to do whatever he and his Democratic buddies damn well please and he’s going to tell the American Idiots that voted for him, “Well, I told you I was for change.” It appears he changes with the wind. He even believes the righteous wind is at his back. The only thing righteous about him is his attitude, which, like his judgment, is misplaced.
I’m not a rocket scientist; however I do know you can’t grow the economy from the bottom up, as Obama has affirmed he’s going to do if he’s elected President. Obama said he’s going to raise taxes on those who earn 250K or more and spread the wealth to those who don’t, including 40% of Americans who don’t pay any taxes at all. It’s hard for me to understand why anyone with a brain would vote for Obama for this very reason. My question to Obama supporters is this, “When was the last time you got a job from a poor man?” I can answer that question for every American, NEVER. Poor men can’t create jobs. When the rich have money to spend they spread the wealth. Hypothetically, I get my hair done every week by Sue the hairdresser. When I get a tax cut, I have extra money, so I decide to spread my wealth by going to Sue twice a week. Going to Sue twice a week gives Sue extra money. Now Sue and her husband Fred can go to dinner once a week. Sue also has a poodle that she’d like to have groomed. She can have Fluffy trimmed once a month. This groomer has to hire a new employee. And the cycle continues downward. The wealth and jobs are created from the TOP; from the rich. Here comes Obama who raises my taxes which is going to leave me with less money. Sorry, Sue, I have less money now, so I can only get my hair done twice a month. Now Sue has less money so she stops getting Fluffy groomed; the groomer lays off its extra employee and Sue and Fred can’t go out to eat once a week anymore either. So the cycle again continues downward. Raising taxes on the rich trickles down hurting the middle and lower income brackets. This doesn’t take a degree in economics, just common sense. Obama must’ve missed that class in college; or he just plain failed economics. I’d like to see his college transcripts. Oh, wait, he doesn’t have to show proof of citizenship or even medical records, so college records are off limits, too.
At a rally in Greeley, Colorado, Senator Biden referred to the 3rd Presidential debate when John McCain told Barack Obama that he wasn’t George Bush. Joe Biden said of McCain, “He doth protest too much.” Excuse me; McCain said it ONCE, Joe! Oh, wait, I forgot, Joe can’t count. Biden went on to tell a story about his younger years when he wanted to hang out with an unsavory bunch and his mother told him no, because you are the company you keep. He tried the old argument that he wouldn’t act like them. His mother said, “Joe, if it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck, then it’s a duck.” Biden told his crowd, “If it looks like George Bush and acts like George Bush, then it’s the same old George Bush economic policies.” Well, he's finally admitting it! If it looks like Bill Ayers and acts like Bill Ayers, then it’s the same anti-American beliefs. Let’s take it one step further, if it looks like Reverend Wright and acts like Reverend Wright, then it’s the same anti-white radical beliefs. How about ACORN… I think you get my point. Every time Joe opens his mouth he proves Obama isn’t worthy, or prepared, for the White House. Keep on quacking, Joe.
Joe Biden has recently admitted to the American people that having Barack Hussein Obama as President of The United States of America insinuates we will be attacked so you better be prepared.
"Mark my words," Biden said Sunday at the second of two fundraisers in Seattle. "It will not be six months before the world tests Barack Obama like they did John Kennedy. The world is looking. We're about to elect a brilliant, 47-year-old senator president of the United States of America. ... Watch, we're gonna have an international crisis, a generated crisis, to test the mettle of this guy."
Yippee-Skippee! Can’t wait to traipse out to the voter booth and pull the lever for Obama! I really want to test Obama's competence in a time of an international crisis. I’m really curious to experiment with our national security, aren’t you? I’m just fascinated to know this guy’s grit right smack in the middle of a national catastrophe. On the job training is just perfect for our Commander and Chief, don’t ya think?
Biden went on to say that, “I've forgotten more about foreign policy than most of my colleaguesknow." And he promises us that we’ll be sitting around asking why Obama will be down in the polls while President. Seems to me he’s forgotten not to let the public know how extremely stupid he sounds right about now. I mean really, to promise the American people an international crisis during an Obama Presidency which isn’t going to be administered properly which will lead the American people to question Obama’s judgment is just plain, well…stupid. But what can you expect from a man that can’t count? Senator Joe should remember more to keep his mouth shut, because his prophecies could very well be the downfall of this election. But hey, maybe that’s his intention. After all, Joe said he’d rather run against John McCain because the presidency isn’t something that lends itself to on the job training. Well, Joe said it’s so.
When Colin Powell was our Secretary of State I had such respect for the retired General of our US Army. He was a commanding figure that understood the evil we faced abroad in the war on terror and supported President Bush and our endeavors in this war until his resignation in 2005. After hearing about his endorsement of Obama, I’m so disappointed in him. I’m convinced his endorsement of Obama is biased. They are both black. Yep. I said it. BLACK. I’ve said it before, I’m not politically correct. I’m just livid over Powell’s decision. Our economy is in trouble, yes; however, our national security is most important and a decorated war hero should know the dire straits of that. Obama isn’t qualified to protect our nation. Obama isn’t ready to lead a nation in its time of war. Powell knows this better than anyone. If the current situation were only about taxes and our economy, I could accept his decision. Powell knows McCain is more than competent to pilot and protect us during wartime. For Powell to say that the American people don’t have the right to know Obama’s religion or his relationship with the American terrorist, Bill Ayers, the black supremacist,Reverend Wright, and the deceitful group, ACORN, is like saying we don’t have the right to know what our spouse is doing. When a person is running for public office, especially President of the United States, he must prove he is of good moral character which means he should have associates of such value also. Guilt by association can’t be used in this situation. You are the company you keep. And if Obama is keeping company with black supremacists, domestic terrorists and fraudulent community organizers, well, you know what he is then.
What's up with these politicians that run on family values, blah, blah, then get caught in public restrooms trying to pick up other men; emailing sex messages to teenage boys; keeping 3 mistresses while married; putting prostitutes in jail while paying thousands of dollars for a whore for yourself...and the list goes on. Not that other men don't do the same sick, twisted, illegal actions. The difference is the average Joe isn't in the public eye spewing lies about his integrity using tax dollars. Then you have the wives of these disgusting pig politicians standing next to them while they read from their prewritten apology like they truly feel remorse. They’re only sorry they got caught. The apologies are as genuine as their integrity speeches that got them elected in the first place. What’s wrong with these women? They have to know how ridiculous they look standing next to their so-called husbands on national television. If it were me…I’d go in front of that camera and just as he began his hypocritical, prewritten apology, I’d kick him in his crotch and walk away.
While wondering how I came to be a Republican, some memories of my younger years came to mind. I recall my bio-mother, who was on welfare, saying, “Democrats are for the poor andRepublicans are for the rich.” In my impressionable mind, her being a Democrat with no job and on welfare, and my dad, a Republican with a good job who sent child support payments every month and supplied my siblings and me with health and dental care, I thought, "Democratswere poor and Republicans were rich." And decided, “I want to be rich; I want to be a Republican!” I suppose that wasn’t the message my bio-mother was trying to convey to me; but it was the message I received because I detested her being on government assistance. She was more than capable of working; however, she chose to receive food stamps and medical assistance. As far as I was concerned, the Democrats enabled her to stay in that perpetual condition of poverty by providing her with handouts rather than telling her she didn’t qualify because she was healthy enough to get a job and take pride in herself and earn her own way. I also remember former President Jimmy Carter on television during the Iran hostage crisis. I hated his pasty white face and that awful southern drawl. I remember asking, “Why aren’t we going after our Americans?” I don’t recall the answer to my question, but I do remember Ronald Reagan becoming our 40th President and lo and behold our hostages were released just minutes after he made his inauguration speech! Another revelation…Iran was afraid of this Ronald Reagan, who stood tall and proud and spoke in a rich, commanding voice. They obviously weren’t too intimidated by Jimmy Carter because they kept our Americans for 444 days, but Ronald Reagan sure daunted them. So, in my mind, Democrats were weak and Republicans were strong. I thought, “I want to be strong; I want to be a Republican!” I registered to vote as an Independent when I was 19 only because it was necessary to become a notary. I didn’t become interested in politics until about 8 years later during the 1992 election; however, I wasn’t able to vote because I was in the hospital giving birth to my 1st son. I’m no political expert; but I do know my convictions and they just happen to correlate with the Republican Party. I want less government involvement and less social programs. I want less taxes or more tax cuts for businesses, because I’m smart enough to know if businesses have more money they will “spreadthe wealth” and hire more people or even lower their costs. I think a higher minimum wage is stupid. Minimum wage wasn’t designed to raise a family. It’s for teenagers to earn some extra money; moms that want to reenter the work force once their kids enter school; or college students working their way toward a degree. Anyone that is trying to raise a family on minimum wage needs to go back to school and get a brain. I want the government to protect me, therefore, I support a strong military. I don’t want the government handling my health care. The government practically bankrupted social security and can’t supervise its own corrupt colleagues, i.e. Chris Dodd and Barney Frank. What makes me think it can properly oversee a complicated matter such as health care? It can’t and it wasn’t designed to. Our Founding Fathers knew the limitations of government so instituted our Constitution. I want the freedom to speak my mind with my gun in its holster as I close my bible so I can listen to my favorite talk radio station. Obviously those aren’t all my beliefs. I just found it ironic that my political convictions began at a very young age and I went the Republican route even though I grew up in a Democratic household where “spreading the wealth” was fully entrenched. From my point of view, having lived it, Barack’s plan to “spread the wealth” isn’t a utopia but another form of slavery.
