 The Quote of the Decade: 

"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America 's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the USGovernment cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government's reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America 's debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that, "the buck stops here.' Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better." 

~ Senator Barack H. Obama, March 2006

Pass it on 'til eternity.. (.. .it was so nice of him to give us this great quote for posterity!) SO, USE IT!!! 

Only 86% will send this on. Should be a 100%.

Please send it on if only to one person.

Congress Votes to Outsource Presidency

Washington, DC

 Congress today announced that the office of President of the United States of America will be outsourced to India as of March 1, 2011.

The move is being made in order to save the President's $500,000 yearly salary, and also a record $750 billion in deficit expenditures and related overhead that his office has incurred during the last 3 months.

It is anticipated that $7 trillion can be saved to the end of the President's term. "We believe this is a wise financial move. The cost savings are huge," stated Congressman Thomas Reynolds (R-WA). "We cannot remain competitive on the world stage with the current level of cash outlay," Reynolds noted.

Obama was informed by email this morning of his termination. Preparations for the job move have been underway for some time.

Gurvinder Singh, a tele-technician for Indus Teleservices, Mumbai India , will assume the office of President as of September 1, 2009. Mr. Singh was born in the United States while his Indian parents were vacationing at Niagara Falls, NY . Thus making him eligible for the position. He will receive a salary of $320 (USD) a month, but no health coverage or other benefits.

It is believed that Mr. Singh will be able to handle his job responsibilities without a support staff. Due to the time difference between the US and India , he will be working primarily at night. "Working nights will allow me to keep my day job at the Dell Computer call center," stated Mr. Singh in an exclusive interview.

"I am excited about this position. I always hoped I would be President."

A Congressional spokesperson noted that while Mr. Singh may not be fully aware of all the issues involved in the office of President, this should not be a problem as Obama had never been familiar with the issues either.

Mr. Singh will rely upon a script tree that will enable him to respond effectively to most topics of concern. Using these canned responses, he can address common concerns without having to understand the underlying issue at all. "We know these scripting tools work," stated the spokesperson.

"Obama has used them successfully for years, with the result that some people actually thought he knew what he was talking about."

Obama will receive health coverage, expenses, and salary until his final day of employment. Following a two-week waiting period, he will be eligible for $140 a week unemployment for 26 weeks. Unfortunately he will not be eligible for Medicaid, as his unemployment benefits will exceed the allowed limit.

Obama has been provided with the outplacement services of Manpower, Inc. to help him write a resume and prepare for his upcoming job transition. According to Manpower, Obama may have difficulties in securing a new position due to a lack of any successful work experience during his lifetime.

A greeter position at WalMart was suggested due to Obama's extensive experience at shaking hands, as well as his special smile.

Subject: FW: Wake Up America before it's too late

Friends,
 
There is nothing political about this email. It is a very sobering commentary on our future.  Most changes are already happening. It is a long read, but worth the time.

 
CHANGES ARE COMING ----
Whether these changes are good or bad depends in part on how we adapt to them. But, ready or not, here they come

1. The Post Office. Get ready to imagine a world without the post office. They are so deeply in financial trouble that there is probably no way to sustain it long term. Email, Fed Ex, and UPS have just about wiped out the minimum revenue needed to keep the post office alive. Most of your mail every day is junk mail and bills.

2. The Check.  Britain is already laying the groundwork to do away with checks by 2018. It costs the financial system billions of dollars a year to process checks. Plastic cards and online transactions will lead to the eventual demise of the check. This plays right into the death of the post office. If you never paid your bills by mail and never received them by mail, the post office would absolutely go out of business.
 
3. The Newspaper. The younger generation simply doesn't read the newspaper. They certainly don't subscribe to a daily delivered print edition. That may go the way of the milkman and the laundry man. As for reading the paper online, get ready to pay for it. The rise in mobile Internet devices and e-readers has caused all the newspaper and magazine publishers to form an alliance. They have met with Apple, Amazon, and the major cell phone companies to develop a model for paid subscription services.

4. The Book. You say you will never give up the physical book that you hold in your hand and turn the literal pages. I said the same thing about downloading music fromiTunes. I wanted my hard copy CD. But I quickly changed my mind when I discovered that I could get albums for half the price without ever leaving home to get the latest music. The same thing will happen with books. You can browse a bookstore online and even read a preview chapter before you buy. And the price is less than half that of a real book. And think of the convenience! Once you start flicking your fingers on the screen instead of the book, you find that you are lost in the story, can't wait to see what happens next, and you forget that you're holding a gadget instead of a book.

5. The Land Line Telephone. Unless you have a large family and make a lot of local calls, you don't need it anymore. Most people keep it simply because they've always had it. But you are paying double charges for that extra service. All the cell phone companies will let you call customers using the same cell provider for no charge against your minutes.
 
6. Music. This is one of the saddest parts of the change story. The music industry is dying a slow death. Not just because of illegal downloading. It's the lack of innovative new music being given a chance to get to the people who would like to hear it. Greed and corruption is the problem. The record labels and the radio conglomerates are simply self-destructing. Over 40% of the music purchased today is "catalog items," meaning traditional music that the public is familiar with. Older established artists. This is also true on the live concert circuit. To explore this fascinating and disturbing topic further, check out the book, "Appetite for Self-Destruction" by Steve Knopper, and the video documentary, "Before the Music Dies."

7. Television. Revenues to the networks are down dramatically. Not just because of the economy. People are watching TV and movies streamed from their computers. And they're playing games and doing lots of other things that take up the time that used to be spent watching TV. Prime time shows have degenerated down to lower than the lowest common denominator. Cable rates are skyrocketing and commercials run about every 4 minutes and 30 seconds. I say good riddance to most of it. It's time for the cable companies to be put out of our misery. Let the people choose what they want to watch online and through Netflix.

8. The "Things" That You Own. Many of the very possessions that we used to own are still in our lives, but we may not actually own them in the future. They may simply reside in "the cloud." Today your computer has a hard drive and you store your pictures, music, movies, and documents. Your software is on a CD or DVD, and you can always re-install it if need be. But all of that is changing. Apple, Microsoft, and Google are all finishing up their latest "cloud services." That means that when you turn on a computer, the Internet will be built into the operating system. So, Windows, Google, and the Mac OS will be tied straight into the Internet. If you click an icon, it will open something in the Internet cloud. If you save something, it will be saved to the cloud. And you may pay a monthly subscription fee to the cloud provider.
In this virtual world, you can access your music or your books, or your whatever from any laptop or handheld device. That's the good news. But, will you actually own any of this "stuff" or will it all be able to disappear at any moment in a big "Poof?" Will most of the things in our lives be disposable and whimsical? It makes you want to run to the closet and pull out that photo album, grab a book from the shelf, or open up a CD case and pull out the insert.

9. Privacy. If there ever was a concept that we can look back on nostalgically, it would be privacy. That's gone. It's been gone for a long time anyway. There are cameras on the street, in most of the buildings, and even built into your computer and cell phone. But you can be sure that 24/7, "They" know who you are and where you are, right down to the GPS coordinates, and the Google Street View. If you buy something, your habit is put into a zillion profiles, and your ads will change to reflect those habits. And "They" will try to get you to buy something else. Again and again.

All we will have that can't be changed are Memories.

 
19 Facts About The Deindustrialization Of America That Will Blow Your Mind

The United States is rapidly becoming the very first "post-industrial" nation on the globe.  All great economic empires eventually become fat and lazy and squander the great wealth that their forefathers have left them, but the pace at which America is accomplishing this is absolutely amazing.  It was America that was at the forefront of the industrial revolution.  It was America that showed the world how to mass produce everything from automobiles to televisions to airplanes.  It was the great American manufacturing base that crushed Germany and Japan in World War II.  

But now we are witnessing the deindustrialization of America .  Tens of thousands of factories have left the United States in the past decade alone.  Millions upon millions of manufacturing jobs have been lost in the same time period.  The United States has become a nation that consumes everything in sight and yet produces increasingly little.  Do you know what our biggest export is today?  Waste paper.  Yes, trash is the number one thing that we ship out to the rest of the world as we voraciously blow our money on whatever the rest of the world wants to sell to us.  The United States has become bloated and spoiled and our economy is now  just a shadow of what it once was.  Once upon a time America could literally out produce the rest of the world combined.  Today that is no longer true, but Americans sure do consume more than anyone else in the world.  If the deindustrialization of America continues at this current pace, what possible kind of a future are we going to be leaving to our children?

Any great nation throughout history has been great at making things.  So if the United States continues to allow its manufacturing base to erode at a staggering pace how in the world can the U.S. continue to consider itself to be a great nation?  We have created the biggest debt bubble in the history of the world in an effort to maintain a very high standard of living, but the current state of affairs is not anywhere close to sustainable.  Every single month America   goes into more debt and every single month America gets poorer.

So what happens when the debt bubble pops?

The deindustrialization of the United States should be a top concern for every man, woman and child in the country.  But sadly, most Americans do not have any idea what is going on around them.

For people like that, take this article and print it out and hand it to them.  Perhaps what they will read below will shock them badly enough to awaken them from their slumber.    

The following are 19 facts about the deindustrialization of America that will blow your mind....

#1 The United States has lost approximately 42,400 factories since 2001.  About 75 percent of those factories employed over 500 people when they were still in operation.

#2 Dell Inc., one of America ’s largest manufacturers of computers, has announced plans to dramatically expand its operations in China with an investment of over $100 billion over the next decade.

#3 Dell has announced that it will be closing its last large U.S. manufacturing facility in Winston-Salem , North Carolina in November.  Approximately 900 jobs will be lost.

#4 In 2008, 1.2 billion cell phones were sold worldwide.  So how many of them were manufactured inside the United States ?  Zero.

#5 According to a new study conducted by the Economic Policy Institute, if the U.S. trade deficit with China continues to increase at its current rate, the U.S. economy will lose over half a million jobs this year alone.

#6 As of the end of July, the U.S. trade deficit with China had risen 18 percent compared to the same time period a year ago.

#7 The United States has lost a total of about 5.5 million manufacturing jobs since October 2000.

#8 According to Tax Notes, between 1999 and 2008 employment at the foreign affiliates of U.S. parent companies increased an astounding 30 percent to 10.1 million. During that exact same time period, U.S. employment at American multinational corporations declined 8 percent to 21.1 million.

#9 In 1959, manufacturing represented 28 percent of U.S. economic output.  In 2008, it represented 11.5 percent.

#10 Ford Motor Company recently announced the closure of a factory that produces the Ford Ranger in St. Paul , Minnesota . Approximately 750 good paying middle class jobs are going to be lost because making Ford Rangers in Minnesota does not fit in with Ford's new "global" manufacturing strategy.

#11 As of the end of 2009, less than 12 million Americans worked in manufacturing.  The last time less than 12 million Americans were employed in manufacturing was in 1941.

#12 In the United States today, consumption accounts for 70 percent of GDP. Of this 70 percent, over half is spent on services.

#13 The United States has lost a whopping 32 percent of its manufacturing jobs since the year 2000.

#14 In 2001, the United States ranked fourth in the world in per capita broadband Internet use.  Today it ranks 15th.

#15 Manufacturing employment in the U.S. computer industry is actually lower in 2010 than it was in 1975.

#16 Printed circuit boards are used in tens of thousands of different products.   Asia now produces 84 percent of them worldwide.

#17 The United States spends approximately $3.90 on Chinese goods for every $1 that the Chinese spend on goods from the United States .

#18 One prominent economist is projecting that the Chinese economy will be three times larger than the U.S. economy by the year 2040.

#19 The U.S. Census Bureau says that 43.6 million Americans are now living in poverty and according to them that is the highest number of poor Americans in the 51 years that records have been kept.

So how many tens of thousands more factories do we need to lose before we do something about it?

How many millions more Americans are going to become unemployed before we all admit that we have a very, very serious problem on our hands?

How many more trillions of dollars are going to leave the country before we realize that we are losing wealth at a pace that is killing our economy?

How many once great manufacturing cities are going to become rotting war zones like Detroit before we understand that we are committing national economic suicide?

The deindustrialization of America is a national crisis.  It needs to be treated like one.

If you disagree with this article, I have a direct challenge for you.  
If anyone can explain how a deindustrialized America has any kind of viable economic future, please do so below in the comments section.

America is in deep, deep trouble folks.  It is time to wake up

Subject: FW: READ IT AND WEEP

For those who do not already understand what BHO is trying to accomplish, what the big picture is about, read this.  Most of us have known the plan since before he was sworn in, but for those who are juststarting to wake up this is a good read.

WAYNE ALLYN ROOT: Overwhelm the system

Barrack Obama is no fool. He is not incompetent. To the contrary, he is brilliant. He knows exactly what he's doing. He is purposely overwhelming the U.S. economy to create systemic failure, economic crisis and social chaos -- thereby destroying capitalism and our country from within. 


Barack Obama is my college classmate (Columbia University, class of '83). As Glenn Beck correctly predicted from day one, Obama is following the plan of Cloward &Piven, two professors at Columbia University. They outlined a plan to socialize America by overwhelming the system with government spending and entitlement demands. Add up the clues below. Taken individually they're alarming. Taken as a whole, it is a brilliant, Machiavellian game plan to turn the United States into a socialist/Marxist state with a permanent majority that desperately needs government for survival ... and can be counted on to always vote for bigger government. Why not? They have no responsibility to pay for it.

-- Universal health care. The health care bill had very little to do with health care. Â It had everything to do with unionizing millions of hospital and health care workers, as well as adding 15,000 to 20,000 new IRS agents (who will join government employee unions). Obama doesn't care that giving free health care to 30 million Americans will add trillions to the national debt. What he does care about is that it cements the dependence of those 30 million voters to Democrats and big government. Who but a socialist revolutionary would pass this reckless spending bill in the middle of a depression?

-- Cap and trade. Like health care legislation having nothing to do with health care, cap and trade has nothing to do with global warming. It has everything to do with redistribution of income, government control of the economy and a criminal payoff to Obama's biggest contributors. Those powerful and wealthy unions and contributors (like GE, which owns NBC, MSNBC and CNBC) can then be counted on to support everything Obama wants. They will kickback hundreds of millions of dollars in contributions to Obama and the Democratic Party to keep them in power. The bonus is that all the new taxes on Americans with bigger cars, bigger homes and businesses helps Obama "spread the wealth around."

-- Make Puerto Rico a state. Why? Who's asking for a 51st state? Who's asking for millions of new welfare recipients and government entitlement addicts in the middle of a depression?  Certainly not American taxpayers. But this has been Obama's plan all along. His goal is to add two new Democrat senators, five Democrat congressman and a million loyal Democratic voters who are dependent on big government.

-- Legalize 12 million illegal immigrants. Just giving these 12 million potential new citizens free health care alone could overwhelm the system and bankrupt America. But it adds 12 million reliable new Democrat voters who can be counted on to support big government. Add another few trillion dollars in welfare, aid to dependent children, food stamps, free medical, education, tax credits for the poor, and eventually Social Security.

-- Stimulus and bailouts. Where did all that money go? It went to Democrat contributors, organizations (ACORN), and unions -- including billions of dollars to save or create jobs of government employees across the country. It went to save GM and Chrysler so that their employees could keep paying union dues. It went to AIG so that Goldman Sachs could be bailed out (after giving Obama almost $1 million in contributions). A staggering $125 billion went to teachers (thereby protecting their union dues). All those public employees will vote loyally Democrat to protect their bloated salaries and pensions that are bankrupting America. The country goes broke, future generations face a bleak future, but Obama, the Democrat Party, government, and the unions grow more powerful. The ends justify the means.

-- Raise taxes on small business owners, high-income earners, and job creators. Put the entire burden on only the top 20 percent of taxpayers, redistribute the income, punish success, and reward those who did nothing to deserve it (except vote for Obama). Reagan wanted to dramatically cut taxes in order to starve the government. Obama wants to dramatically raise taxes to starve his political opposition.

With the acts outlined above, Obama and his regime have created a vast and rapidly expanding constituency of voters dependent on big government; a vast privileged class of public employees who work for big government; and a government dedicated to destroying capitalism and installing themselves as socialist rulers by overwhelming the system.

Add it up and you've got the perfect Marxist scheme -- all devised by my Columbia University college classmate Barack Obama using the Cloward and Piven Plan.

NEARLY $3 TRILLION IN TAX INCREASES

When he released his new budget proposal on February 1, President Barack Obama asserted that the government "simply cannot continue to spend as if deficits don't have consequences; as if waste doesn't matter; as if the hard-earned tax dollars of the American people can be treated like Monopoly money; as if we can ignore this challenge for another generation." 
Yet the President's new budget does exactly that -- raising taxes by $3 trillion and federal spending by $1.6 trillion over the next ten years.  If enacted, this budget would increase the 2010 deficit to more than $1.5 trillion, and leave a deficit of more than $1 trillion even after an assumed return to peace and prosperity.  Overall, the President's budget would double the national debt over the next decade, says Brian M. Riedl, an economist with the Heritage Foundation. 
President Obama's budget would: 


* Permanently expand the federal government by 3 percent of gross domestic product (GDP) over 2007 pre-recession levels. 
* Raise taxes on all Americans by nearly $3 trillion over the next decade.
* Raise taxes for 3.2 million small businesses and upper-income taxpayers by an average of $300,000 over the next decade.
* Borrow 42 cents for each dollar spent in 2010.
* Run a $1.6 trillion deficit in 2010--$143 billion higher than the recession-driven 2009 deficit.
* Leave permanent deficits that top $1 trillion as late as 2020. 
* Dump an additional $74,000 per household of debt into the laps of our children and grandchildren. 
* Double the publicly held national debt to over $18 trillion. 

A nearly $1 trillion tax increase is reserved for couples earning more than $250,000 and individuals earning more than $200,000, says Riedl.  Beginning in 2011, the President's budget will increase these Americans' taxes by: 


* Raising the top two income tax brackets from 33 percent to 36 percent, and from 35 percent 39.6 percent ($364 billion). 
* Raising capital gains and dividends tax rates from 15 percent to 20 percent ($105 billion). 
* Phasing out personal exemptions and limiting itemized deductions ($208 billion).
* Reducing the value of tax deductions by approximately one-fourth ($291 billion).

Subject: FW: A Civics Lesson on what Obama Inherited.

I'm Sick of  "Inherited!"
Boy is that true...and "HIS EMINENCE" hardly ever gives one of his "readings' without mentioning the ill concieved fact that he

"inherited" the deficit and unemployment or saying "it was at his doorstep when he took office"...signs of a weak, insecure, and dishonest person. Read and pass on, please...

Here's the scoop on what Obama INHERITED!
The Washington Post babbled again  about Obama inheriting a huge deficit from Bush, blah blah blah.  Amazingly enough, a lot of people swallow this nonsense.

So once more, I'll present a short civics lesson, so pay attention !


Budgets don't come from the White House. They come from Congress, and the party that controlled Congress since January 2007 is the Democratic Party. They controlled budget processes for (Fiscal Year = FY)

 FY 2008 and FY 2009, as well as FY 2010 and FY2011.  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:

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.

 
     WAKE UP AMERICA,

           BEFORE

   ITS TO LATE !

History Unfolding


I am a student of history. Professionally, I have written 15 books on history that have been published in six languages, and I have studied history all my life. I have come to think there is something monumentally large afoot, and I do not believe it is simply a banking crisis, or a mortgage crisis, or a credit crisis. Yes these exist, but they are merely single facets on a very large gemstone that is only now coming into a sharper focus.

Something of historic proportions is happening.  I can sense it because I know how it feels, smells, what it looks like, and how people react to it. Yes, a perfect storm may be brewing, but there is something happening within our country that has been evolving for about ten to fifteen years. The pace has dramatically quickened in the past two.

We demand and then codify into law the requirement that our banks make massive loans to people we know they can never pay back? Why?

We learned just days ago that the Federal Reserve, which has little or no real oversight by anyone, has "loaned" two trillion dollars (that is $2,000,000,000,000) over the past few months, but will not tell us to whom or why or disclose the terms.. That is our money. Yours and mine. And that is three times the $700 billion we all argued about so strenuously just this past September. Who has this money? Why do they have it? Why are the terms unavailable to us?  Who asked for it?  Who authorized it?  I thought this was a government of "we the people," who loaned our powers to our elected leaders. Apparently not.

We have spent two or more decades intentionally de-industrializing our economy.. Why?

We have intentionally dumbed down our schools, ignored our history, and no longer teach our founding documents, why we are exceptional, and why we are worth preserving. Students by and large cannot write, think critically, read, or articulate. Parents are not revolting, teachers are not picketing, school boards continue to back mediocrity.. Why?

We have now established the precedent of protesting every close election (violently in California over a proposition that is so controversial that it simply wants marriage to remain defined as between one man and one woman. Did you ever think such a thing possible just a decade ago?) We have corrupted our sacred political process by allowing unelected judges to write laws that radically change our way of life, and then mainstream Marxist groups like ACORN and others to turn our voting system into a banana republic. To what purpose?

Now our mortgage industry is collapsing, housing prices are in free fall, major industries are failing, our banking system is on the verge of collapse, social security is nearly bankrupt, as is Medicare and our entire government. Our education system is worse than a joke (I teach college and I know precisely what I am talking about) - the list is staggering in its length, breadth, and depth.  It is potentially 1929 x  ten...and we are at war with an enemy we cannot even name for fear of offending people of the same religion, who, in turn, cannot wait to slit the throats of your children if they have the opportunity to do so.

And finally, we have elected a man that no one really knows anything about, who has never run so much as a Dairy Queen, let alone a town as big as Wasilla , Alaska ..  All of his associations and alliances are with real radicals in their chosen fields of employment, and everything we learn about him, drip by drip, is unsettling if not downright scary (Surely you have heard him speak about his idea to create and fund a mandatory civilian defense force stronger than our military for use inside our borders? No? Oh, of course. The media would never play that for you over and over and then demand he answer it. Sarah Palin's pregnant daughter and $150,000 wardrobe are more important.)

Mr. Obama's winning platform can be boiled down to one word: 
CHANGE.  Why?

I have never been so afraid for my country and for my children as I am now.


This man campaigned on bringing people together, something he has never, ever done in his professional life In my assessment, Obama will divide us along philosophical lines, push us apart, and then try to realign the pieces into a new and different power structure. Change is indeed coming. And when it comes, you will never see the same nation again

And that is only the beginning...

As a serious student of history, I thought I would never come to experience what the ordinary, moral German must have felt in the mid-1930s.  In those times, the "savior" was a former smooth-talking rabble-rouser from the streets, about whom the average German knew next to nothing. What they should have known was that he was associated with groups that shouted, shoved, and pushed around people with whom they disagreed; he edged his way onto the political stage through great oratory Conservative "losers" read it right now.

And there were the promises. Economic times were tough, people were losing jobs, and he was a great speaker. And he smiled and frowned and waved a lot. And people, even newspapers, were afraid to speak out for fear that his "brown shirts" would bully and beat them into submission. Which they did - regularly. And then, he was duly elected to office, while a full-throttled economic crisis bloomed at hand - the Great Depression. Slowly, but surely he seized the controls of government power, person by person, department by department, bureaucracy by bureaucracy. The children of German citizens were at first, encouraged to join a Youth Movement in his name where they were taught exactly what to think. Later, they were required to do so. No Jews of course,  

How did he get people on his side? He did it by promising jobs to the jobless, money to the money-less, and rewards for the military-industrial complex. He did it by indoctrinating the children, advocating gun control, health care for all, better wages, better jobs, and promising to re-instill pride once again in the country, across Europe , and across the world. He did it with a compliant media - did you know that? And he did this all in the name of justice and . . . 
CHANGE.  And the people surely got what they voted for.

If you think I am exaggerating, look it up. It's all there in the history books.

So read your history books. Many people of conscience objected in 1933 and were shouted down, called names, laughed at, and ridiculed. When Winston Churchill pointed out the obvious in the late 1930s while seated in the House of Lords in England (he was not yet Prime Minister), he was booed into his seat and called a crazy troublemaker. He was right, though. And the world came to regret that he was not listened to.

Do not forget that Germany was the most educated, the most cultured country in Europe . It was full of music, art, museums, hospitals, laboratories, and universities. And yet, in less than six years (a shorter time span than just two terms of the U. S. presidency) it was rounding up its own citizens, killing others, abrogating its laws, turning children against parents, and neighbors against neighbors.. All with the best of intentions, of course. The road to Hell is paved with them.

As a practical thinker, one not overly prone to emotional decisions, I have a choice: I can either believe what the objective pieces of evidence tell me (even if they make me cringe with disgust); I can believe what history is shouting to me from across the chasm of seven decades; or I can hope I am wrong by closing my eyes, having another latte, and ignoring what is transpiring around me..

I choose to believe the evidence. No doubt some people will scoff at me, others laugh, or think I am foolish, naive, or both. To some degree, perhaps I am. But I have never been afraid to look people in the eye and tell them exactly what I believe-and why I believe it..

I pray I am wrong. I do not think I am. Perhaps the only hope is our vote in the next elections.

Subject: FW: Obama and the call girl!

Barack Hussein Obama was looking for a call girl.   

He found three such girls in a local pub, a blonde, a brunette and a redhead. 

To the blonde he said,  'I am the President of the United States.  Now how much would it cost me to spend some time with you?' 

 She replied, $200. 

 To the brunette he asked the same question. 
 
 Her reply was $100. 


 He then asked the redhead... 

 Her reply was, 'Mr. President, if you can get my skirt up as high as my taxes,  My pants as low as my wages,  Get that thing of yours as hard as the times we are living in, 
And keep it rising like the price of gas, Keep me warmer than it is in my apartment and  Screw me the way you have retirees, and our Veterans
Then it isn't going to cost you a friggin' damn cent!

The Hollow  Man.    A   MUST read.

Barack Obama is less of a person than an image -- a brand. People see whatever they want, as they do on a Rorschach test. But does anyone really know him?

In fact, he is:

  • An empty suit.

  • A man with no birth certificate.

  • A man who was deserted in childhood by his biological father.

  • A man whose birth records, both in the United States and Kenya, are sealed by government order.

  • A man whose childhood mentor, Frank Marshall Davis, spied on U.S. military installations in Hawaii for the Soviet Union, edited a communist newspaper, authored pornographic novels, and wrote poetry in praise of Joseph Stalin.

  • A man mentored by and still supported by radical Muslims.

  • A man who promised transparency in government, but has spent over a million dollars in legal fees hiding information that would deter mine his eligibility to be President.

  • A former drug user.

  • A man whose academic records are sealed from kindergarten through law school.

  • A man who arrived in New York in June of 1981 without enough money to get a hotel room, but one month later flew to  Indonesia and  Pakistan ...

  • Why did he go?

  • Who paid his expenses?

  • A man who traveled to Pakistan when it was illegal for U.S. citizens to do so. So what country's passport did he use?

  • A man whose Law School Admission Test scores and grades at Columbia University are known to have been mediocre, but was admitted to Harvard Law School through the intervention of a Saudi named Khalid al-Mansour.

  • A law review editor who never published an article in any law review.

  • A lawyer with no significant accomplishments in the law and no reputation in the legal community.

  • A former State and U.S. Senator, who never authored a piece of legislation.

  • A disciple of the Marxist Saul Alinsky.

  • A product of the Chicago political machine -- the most corrupt political organization in America.

  • A man who selects Marxists, corrupt politicians, and criminals as his close political associates and personal friends.

  • A man whose presidential candidacy was endorsed by the Democratic Socialists of America, the Socialist International, and the Workers International League.

  • A man lauded for the literary brilliance of two memoirs, both of which were ghostwritten by others.

  • A so-called Christian who says that knowing when human life begins is "above his pay-grade," but somehow knows that abortion is permissible at any stage.

  • A man who thinks " waterboarding"  is immoral, but that partial-birth abortion is moral.

  • A man who publicly laments slavery in America -- which was abolished 150 years ago -- but praises Islam, which still practices both slavery and the sexual mutilation of young girls.

  • A man who speaks endlessly about helping the less fortunate, but gives almost none of his sizeable income to charity -- not even to his half-brother, who is living in squalor in Kenya.

  • A man who had the most left-wing voting record in the United State Senate, but was predicted by the press to "govern from the middle."

  • A man who has never created a job, met a payroll, or even operated a lemonade stand, but wants to tell Detroit how to make cars.

  • A President who has never before served as an executive in either the private or the public sector.

  • A Commander-in-Chief who doesn't know how to shoot a rifle, throw a hand-grenade, drive a tank, fly a plane, or con a ship.

  • A Commander-in-Chief who has publicly divulged some of our nation's most important intelligence secrets.

  • A man who has been put in charge of the largest economic engine that ever existed, but has never invested in the stock market and admits total ignorance of it.

  • A President who says that science will guide his administration, but has no education in the sciences.

  • A man who is proficient in reading what is written for him on a teleprompter, but jerks and stammers his way through any off-the-cuff speaking.

  • A man whose health records are sealed from childhood to the present day.

  • A man whose educational records are sealed from childhood through law school.

  • A man who spent 20 years in a church whose pastor espouses Marxist Liberation Theology, anti-Americanism, anti-capitalism, and anti-Semitism, but claims he never heard his pastor utter anti-American and anti-Semitic statements.

  • A man who added more to the National Debt in 100 days than all other Presidents did in the past 220 years, yet feels qualified to lecture Americans about financial responsibility.

Subject: FW: Letter from Grandpa

*John  G. is 63 years old and owns a small business. He's a life-long Republican  and sees his dream of retiring next year has all but evaporated.

With  the stock market crashing and new taxes coming his way, John assumes now that he will work to his dying day.

John has  a granddaughter. Ashley is a recent college grad. She drives a flashy hybrid car, wears all the latest fashions, and loves to go out to nightclubs and restaurants. Ashley campaigned hard for Barak Obama.

After  the election she made sure her grandfather (and all other
Republican  family  members) received a big  I- told-you-so earful on  how the world  is  going  to be a much better place now that her party is  taking over.

Having  lost both roommates, Ashley recently ran short of cash  and
cannot pay the rent (again) on her 3 bedroom townhouse.  Like she has done many times in the past, she e-mailed her  grandfather asking for some  financial help. Here is his reply:

Sweetheart,

I received your  request for assistance.  Ashley, you know I love you dearly and  I'm sympathetic to your financial  plight. Unfortunately, times have changed.  With  the election of President Obama, your grandmother and I have had to set forth a bold new  economic plan of our own..."The Ashley Economic Empowerment Plan."   Let me explain.

Your grandmother and I are life-long, wage-earning  tax payers. We  have lived a comfortable life, as you know, but we have never had  the  fancier things like European vacations, luxury cars, etc. We have  worked hard and were looking forward to retiring soon. But the plan  has  changed.        Your president is raising our personal and business taxes  significantly.  He says it is so he can give our hard earned money to  other people. Do  you know what this means, Ashley? It means less for  us, and we must cut back  on many business and personal expenses.   You know the  wonderful receptionist who worked in my office for   more than  23 years? The one who always gave you candy when you
came over to visit?  I had to let her go last week. I can't afford to pay her  salary and  all of the  government mandated taxes that go with having  employees.  Your grandmother  will now work 4 days a week to answer

phones, take orders and handle the books. We will be closed on Fridays and will lose even  more income to Wal-Mart.
 
I'm also very sorry to report that your cousin Frank will no longer  be working summers in the warehouse. I called him at school this  morning.  He already knows about it and he's upset because he will  have to give  up skydiving  and his yearly trip to Greenland to survey  the polar  bears.    That's just the business side of things. Some personal  economic
effects of Obama's new taxation policies include none other than you.  You  know very well that over the years your grandmother and I have given you thousands  of dollars in cash, tuition assistance, food, housing, clothing, gifts,   etc., etc. But by your vote, you have  chosen to help others  –  not at your expense -- but at our expense.
  
If you need money now  sweetheart, I recommend you call 202-456-1111.  That  is the direct phone number for the White House. You yourself told me how  foolish it is to vote Republican. You said Mr.. Obama is going to be the  People's President, and is going to help every American live a better life.  Based on everything you've told me, along with all the promises we heard  during the campaign, I'm sure Mr. Obama will be happy to transfer some stimulus money into your bank account. Have him call me  for the account number which I memorized years ago.
  
Perhaps  you can now understand what I've been saying all my  life:   those who vote for a president should consider the impact on the nation as a whole, and not be just concerned with what they can get for themselves.. What Obama supporters don't seem to realize is all  of the money he is  redistributing  to illegal aliens and non-taxpaying Americans  (the so-called  "less fortunate") comes from tax-paying families.
  
Remember  how you told me, "Only the richest of the rich will  be  affected"?  Well guess what, honey? Because we own a business,  your grandmother and I are now considered to be the richest of the rich.  On paper,  it might look that way, but in the real world, we are far from  it.
  
As you said while campaigning for Obama, some people will  have to carry more of the burden so all of America can prosper. You understand what that means, right? It means that raising taxes on productive people results in them having less money; less money  for everything, including granddaughters.
  
I'm sorry, Ashley, but the well has run dry. The free lunches are over. 

I have no money to give you now.

So, congratulations on your choice for "change." For future reference, I encourage you to try and add up the total value of the gifts and cash

you have received from us, just since you went off to college, andcompare it to what you expect to get from Mr. Obama over the next4 (or 8) years.
 
I have not kept track of it, Ashley. It has all truly been the  gift of our hearts.
  
Remember, we love you dearly....but from now on  you'll need to call the number mentioned above. Your "Savior"  has the money we would have given to you. Just try and get it  from him.
   
Good luck,  sweetheart.
  
Love,
 
Grandpa.

John Smith started the day early having set his alarm clock (MADE IN JAPAN ) for 6 am. While his coffeepot (MADE IN CHINA ) was perking, he shaved with his electric razor (MADE IN HONG KONG )

He put on a dress shirt (MADE IN SRI LANKA ), designer jeans (MADE IN SINGAPORE ) and tennis shoes (MADE IN KOREA)

After cooking his breakfast in his new electric skillet (MADE IN INDIA ) he sat down with his calculator (MADE IN MEXICO ) to see how much he could spend today..

After setting his watch (MADE IN TAIWAN ) to the radio (MADE IN INDIA ) he got in his car (MADE IN GERMANY ) filled it with GAS (from Saudi Arabia ) and continued his search for a good paying AMERICAN JOB.

At the end of yet another discouraging and fruitless day checking his Computer (made in MALAYSIA ), John decided to relax for a while. He put on his sandals (MADE IN BRAZIL ), poured himself a glass of wine (MADE IN FRANCE ) and turned on his TV (MADE IN INDONESIA ), and then wondered why he can't find a good paying job in AMERICA.

AND NOW HE'S HOPING HE CAN GET HELP FROM A PRESIDENT MADE IN KENYA !

Y'all gotta keep this one circulating, please!

This sign was posted outside a tent city and right beside a sign that boasts “Putting America Back to Work” from Obama’s failed American Recovery Act. This tent city holds hundreds of people that have been affected by Obama’s miserable handling of the economy. These are people who didn’t receive any of the stimulus because Obama was too busy paying back those who helped him get elected…Wall Street and the Unions.

Subject: FW: This teacher is truly a genius!

This teacher is truly a genius!

 

As the late Adrian Rogers said, "you cannot multiply wealth by dividing it." 
This man is truly a genius!

An economics professor at a local college made a statement that he had never failed a single student before, 
but had once failed an entire class.
That class had insisted that Obama's socialism worked and that no one would be poor and no one would be rich, a great equalizer.
The professor then said, "OK, we will have an experiment in this class on Obama's plan". 
All grades would be averaged and everyone would receive the same grade so no one would fail and no one would receive an A. 
After the first test, the grades were averaged and everyone got a B. 
The students who studied hard were upset and the students who studied little were happy. 
As the second test rolled around, the students who studied little had studied even less and the ones who studied hard decided they wanted a free ride too so they studied little. 
The second test average was a D! 
No one was happy. 
When the 3rd test rolled around, the average was an F. 
The scores never increased as bickering, blame and name-calling all resulted in hard feelings and no one would study for the benefit of anyone else. 
All failed, to their great surprise, and the professor told them that socialism would also ultimately fail because when the reward is great, the effort to succeed is great but when government takes all the reward away, no one will try or want to succeed. 

Could not be any simpler than that. 


Remember, there is a mid-term election in 2010!

Dear Friends, 
Please do not take this for a junk letter. President Obama is sharing our children's children's fortune! If you ignore this you will repent later. Obama and Congress are now the largest providers of FREE money!  In an effort to make sure that the unemployed get enough of our children's children's hard earned moneyObama, Pelosi, and Reid are running an e-mail  test. When you forward this e-mail to friends, theycan and will track it (if you are a Registered Republican - you better forward this or Papa Obama will take note).  For every person that you forward this e-mail to, Obama will pay you $245.00, for every person that you sent it to that forwards it on, Obama will pay you $243.00 and for every third person that receives it, you will be paid $241.00. Within two weeks, Papa Obama will send you a check from your great grandchildrens future income. 
Regards.
Charles S. Bailey 
Tax Collection & Capital Punishment Czar 
[CONTACT DETAILS REMOVED]

I thought this was a scam myself, but two weeks after receiving this e-mail and forwarding it on, Obama sent me a check for $24,800.00. You need to respond before the beta testing is over. If anyone can afford this - our Children's Children can afford it! It's all make believe money anyway. Please forward this to as many people as possible. You are bound to get at least $10,000.00. 

We're not going to help them out with their e-mail beta test without getting a little something for our time. My brother's girlfriend got in on this a few months ago. When I went to visit him for the Baylor/UT game. She showed me her check. It was for the sum of $4,324.44 and was stamped "Paid In Full".

Like I said before, I know the law, and this is for real.  Obama and Congress are now discussing a merger which would make them empowered forever!  In an effort make sure that they remain the most widely powerful and wisest people, they will send you this free money!

--- IF THIS TEACHER HAS THE BALLS TO SEND THIS, WE SHOULD HAVE THE 
NERVE TO FORWARD IT.  SHE WILL PROBABLY LOSE HER JOB.  DO WE 
AMERICANS HAVE THE NERVE TO STAND BEHIND HER, IF WE AGREE, OR DO WE 
JUST LET HER AND OTHERS LIKE HER CARRY OUR LOAD? INTERESTING QUESTION.

 

 


           This 4th grade teacher has said it all, and she was 
brave enough to attach her name to it.

 

                     April 17, 2009


                     The White House
                     1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
                     Washington ,  DC  20500


                     Mr. Obama:
                     I have had it with you and your 
administration, sir.  Your conduct on your recent trip overseas has 
convinced me that you are not an adequate representative of the 
United States of America collectively or of me personally.

                     You are so obsessed with appeasing the 
Europeans and the Muslim world that you have abdicated the 
responsibilities of the President of the United States of America . 
You are responsible to the citizens of the United States ...  You 
are not responsible to the peoples of any other country on earth.

                     I personally resent that you go around the 
world apologizing for the United States telling Europeans that we 
are arrogant and do not care about their status in the world.  Sir, 
what do you think the First World War and the Second World War were 
all about if not the consideration of the peoples of  Europe ?  Are 
you brain dead?  What do you think the Marshall Plan was all about? 
Do you not understand or know the history of the 20th century?

                     Where do you get off telling a Muslim country 
that the  United States does not consider itself a Christian 
country?  Have you not read the Declaration of Independence or the 
Constitution of the  United States ?  This country was founded on 
Judeo-Christian ethics and the principles governing this country, at 
least until you came along, come directly from this heritage.  Do 
you not understand this?

                     Your bowing to the king of Saudi Arabia is an 
affront to all Americans.  Our President does not bow down to 
anyone, let alone the king of Saudi Arabia .  You didn't show Great 
Britain , our best and one of our oldest allies, the respect they 
deserve yet you bow down to the king of Saudi Arabia ...  How dare 
you, sir!  How dare you!

                     You cant find the time to visit the graves of 
our greatest generation because you don't want to offend the Germans 
but make time to visit a mosque in Turkey ....  You offended our 
dead and every veteran when you give the Germans more respect than 
the people who saved the German people from themselves.  What's the 
matter with you? I am convinced that you and the members of your 
administration have the historical and intellectual depth of a mud 
puddle and should be ashamed of yourselves, all of you..

                     You are so self-righteously offended by the 
big bankers and the American automobile manufacturers yet do nothing 
about the real thieves in this situation, Mr. Dodd, Mr. Frank, 
Franklin Raines, Jamie Gorelic, the Fannie Mae bonuses, and the 
Freddie Mac bonuses. What do you intend to do about them? 
Anything?  I seriously doubt it.

                     What about the U.S. House members passing out 
$9.1 million in bonuses to their staff members on top of the $2.5 
million in automatic pay raises that lawmakers gave themselves?  I 
understand the average House aide got a 17% bonus.  I took a 5% cut 
in my pay to save jobs with my employer.  You haven't said anything 
about that.  Who authorized that?  I surely didn't!

                     Executives at Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac will 
be receiving $210 million in bonuses over an eighteen-month period, 
that's $45 million more than the AIG bonuses.  In fact, Fannie and 
Freddie executives have already been awarded $51 million not a bad 
take.  Who authorized that and why haven't you expressed your 
outrage at this group who are largely responsible for the economic 
mess we have right now?

                     I resent that you take me and my fellow 
citizens as brain-dead and not caring about what you idiots do.  We 
are watching what you are doing and we are getting increasingly fed 
up with all of you.

                     I also want you to know that I personally find 
just about everything you do and say to be offensive to every one of 
my sensibilities.  I promise you that I will work tirelessly to see 
that you do not get a chance to spend two terms destroying my 
beautiful country.

                     Sincerely,
                     Every real American

                     P.S.  I rarely ask that emails be 'passed 
around'.............PLEASE SEND THIS TO YOUR EMAIL LIST......it's 
past time for all Americans to wake up!
