What Part Of Illegal Don't They Understand?



DHS releasing hundreds of illegal immigrants, blaming budget cuts

The Department of Homeland Security has started releasing hundreds of illegal immigrants held in local jails in anticipation of automatic budget cuts, in a move one Arizona sheriff called politically motivated -- and dangerous.
Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu said Tuesday that Immigration and Customs Enforcement released more than 500 detainees in his county alone over the weekend. A spokesman for Babeu told FoxNews.com that ICE officials have said they plan to release a total of nearly 10,000 illegal immigrants.


Everytime they legitimize something illegal it makes a mockery of our justice system!  Obama is using the sequester to further his agenda freeing ILLEGAL immigrants.  He is basically making fools of those that went through the process and chose to come to this country legally.  Why not release theives or murderers?  Drug dealers? Rapists?  They broke the law and they should have to pay their time.  Congress better wake the heck up and start opening their mouths.   Frankly I am tired of the citizens of this country having to do their job for them.

Absolutely Un-American!!


Students Told to Call 9-11 Hijackers “Freedom Fighters”



Where is the ACLU?    Separation of Church & State?

An Advanced Placement World Geography teacher at a Texas high school who encouraged students to dress in Islamic clothing also instructed them to refer to the 9-11 hijackers not as terrorists – but as “freedom fighters,” according to students who were in the class.

Students at Lumberton High School were also told to stop referring to the Holocaust as Genocide – instead they were told to use the term “ethnic cleansing.”

John Valastro, the superintendent of the Lumberton Independent School District, told Fox News that the teacher did absolutely nothing wrong.

“What is more dangerous – fear and ignorance or education and understanding,” he asked. “From our standpoint, we are here to educate the kids.

Memorial For A Friend....

Robert "Bob" James Clegg 

March 5, 1942 - February 22, 2013



On February 22, Heaven gained an angel and I lost a friend.  I met Bob through my mom, who went to school with him.  A group of Audubon Alumni, along with others formed the "Bob Clegg Dance Party" and I was honored to be one of them.  We would meet at Clancy's and dance the night away with BLT Band.  Bob may have been in a wheelchair but it did not stop him from getting down with the rest of us.  I still listen to the CD's he made for all of us with our favorite songs.  He beat overwhelming odds and did it with a vibrance for life that I could only look at with awe.  He taught me to make the best of every moment and to never, ever give up.  He is an inspiration and will always hold a special place in my heart.  I will never forget the impact he made in my life!  RIP my friend!

Socialism For Dummies...



Received this on facebook and had to share....

An economics professor at a local college made a statement that he had never failed a single student before, but had recently 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 will be averaged and everyone will receive the same grade so no one will fail and no one will receive an A.... (substituting grades for dollars - something closer to home and more readily understood by all).

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.

As the tests proceeded, 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.

To their great surprise, ALL FAILED 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. (Please pass this on) These are possibly the 5 best sentences you'll ever read and all applicable to this experiment:

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 is the beginning of the end of any nation.


Yes, in socialism the rich will be poorer - but the poor will also be poorer. People will lose interest in really working hard and creating jobs.  -Thomas Peterffy

To Impeach Or Not To Impeach....That Is The Question!




1. Operation Fast & Furious

In June 2012, the Obama administration invoked executive privilege to stop disclosure of documentation to Congress following Operation Fast and Furious, a gun-walking scheme that resulted in the deaths of as many as 100 people, including U.S. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry.
During the botched operation, the Justice Department’s subdivision of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms lost approximately 2,000 weapons, allowing many of them to flow freely across the U.S.-Mexico border and into the hands of members of Mexican drug cartels.

2. Obama’s U.S. citizen ‘hit list’

In 2010, Obama ordered the assassination of a radical American-born Muslim cleric who became an avowed member of al-Qaida’s affiliate in Yemen. Anwar al-Awlaki was killed in a drone strike in September 2011, along with naturalized U.S. citizen and al-Qaida propagandist Samir Khan. Awlaki’s 16-year-old American-born son, Abdulrahman, was killed in a similar strike two weeks earlier.

3. Recess ‘ appointments – when Senate was in session

The Constitution allows the president to nominate judges and executive branch officials, but the Senate must confirm his nominees. Article II, Section 2, of the Constitution authorizes the president to “fill up all Vacancies that may happen during the Recess of the Senate.”
But while the Senate was in session in January 2012, Obama made recess appointments of Richard Cordray to head the new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and three members of the National Labor Relations Board.

4. Appointment of ‘czars’ without Senate approval

Obama also appointed more than 30 unelected  “czars” to positions in federal agencies while the Constitution requires that such appointments be vetted by Congress. Article II, Section 2, allows the president to appoint ambassadors, judges and other officers “with the Advice and Consent of the Senate.”

5. Suing Arizona for enforcing federal law

In April 2010, Arizona adopted an immigration law designed to discourage illegal aliens from entering the state. The law, known as S.B. 1070, authorized state police officers to verify a person’s immigration status with federal authorities and detain individuals suspected of being in the country illegally.
When the state senate passed the bill, President Obama’s administration immediately sued and enjoined the state from enforcing portions of the state’s legislation.

6. Illegal-alien amnesty by executive order

In June 2012, Obama issued an executive order declaring that illegal immigrants who were brought to the U.S. before they turned 16 and who are younger than 30 would not be deported. They are eligible for a two-year work permit that can be renewed indefinitely under the program called Consideration of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals.
Arguing that children of illegal aliens “study in our schools, play in our neighborhoods, befriend our kids, pledge allegiance to our flag,” Obama said, “it makes no sense to expel talented young people who are, for all intents and purposes, Americans.”
Obama’s executive order mimics some of the provisions in the DREAM Act, which has failed to pass in Congress.

7. Cap & Trade: When in doubt, bypass Congress

In April 2010, the U.S. Senate rejected the “cap-and-trade” bill, which created a carbon-tax system and amplified federal power over the energy industry.
Nonetheless, Obama’s EPA administrator, Lisa Jackson, declared carbon dioxide a pollutant. Before Congress had voted on the matter, on Dec. 7, 2009, Jackson signed an “endangerment finding” labeling CO2 and five other gases – methane (CH4), nitrous oxide (N2O), hydrofluorocarbons (HFCs), perfluorocarbons (PFCs) and sulfur hexafluoride (SF6 ) – threats to human health.
That step provided the EPA with the authority to regulate the gases in the absence of congressional approval, and the federal agency rolled out new rules

8. Refusal to prosecute New Black Panthers

After Obama took office, the Department of Justice dismissed voter intimidation charges against two leaders of the New Black Panther Party, or NBPP, related to the 2008 presidential election.
The 14th Amendment to the Constitution guarantees “due process” and “equal protection of the laws” while the 15th Amendment guarantees that “the right of citizens to vote shall not be denied or abridged … on account of race …”

9. Refusal to defend Defense of Marriage Act

President Obama announced in 2011 that his administration believed the Defense of Marriage Act, or DOMA, to be unconstitutional and instructed the Justice Department to no longer defend it in court.
DOMA, which was passed in 1996 under President Bill Clinton, says states will not be forced to recognize homosexual marriages performed in other states, and the federal government doesn’t recognize such unions. The Supreme Court is expected to determine whether Section 3 of DOMA violates the U.S. Constitution’s guarantee of equal protection this spring.

10. Illegally conducting war against Libya

Article I, Section 8, of the Constitution gives Congress the power to declare war.
The U.S. launched combat operations in Libya on March 19, 2011. For several weeks before the U.S. combat operation in Libya, CIA operatives had been deployed to the area to gather intelligence for military airstrikes and support Libyan rebels in the overthrow of Gaddafi. The New York Times reported in March 2011 that Obama had “signed a secret finding authorizing the C.I.A. to provide arms and other support to Libyan rebels.”
The U.S. military had been reportedly monitoring Libyan troops with U-2 spy planes, a high-altitude Global Hawk drone and a JSTARS aircraft to track troop movements

11. Benghazi-gate

On Sept. 11, 2012, a U.S. ambassador to Libya and three other Americans were brutally murdered at a U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi.
Just three days after the attack, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney accused an anti-Muslim video on YouTube of inciting the attack. On Sept. 16, U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice made five television appearances in which she claimed the attacks were spontaneous reactions to the obscure film. Obama mentioned the YouTube video six more times at the U.N. on Sept. 25.  However, there was never any kind of protest at the Benghazi compound that night.

12. Gun-control executive actions

Just more than six weeks after the Sandy Hook massacre in which 20 children and six adults were shot and killed by a gunman at an elementary school in Newtown, Conn., Obama turned his attention to the issue of gun control.
On Jan. 16, Obama surrounded himself with children and signed 23 gun-control “executive actions.”

Confession # 2

I am sick and tired of being sick and tired!  I don't know how to deal with the fact that I feel sick all the time. I try really, really hard to keep it to myself, to suffer in silence, paste on a smile and suck it up.   Whining about it isn't going to change anything but there are times when it becomes too much.  This isn't the flu, where I will feel better in a couple days.

  People, I thought understood still look at me and think "If she only got out more."  or "She just has to work through it."  I know people that don't live it day in and day out can't really understand and I try and have patience and understanding, but sometimes like today, it is just beyond me.

I feel lightheaded and dizzy when I stand up.  I feel nauseous but still try and drink cause I know how important it is.  There is nothing like trying to force liquid down your throat when you feel like it's going to come right back up.  The stomach/abdominal pain is always there.   There isn't a moment when I don't look and feel like I am 9 months pregnant.  Throw that all together, and yeah, that is my reality and it sucks.  It really does and I am so freaking tired of it.  I never feel good! Never!  How am I supposed to just live with that?  Please tell me, because I am out of ideas.

I can't remember the last time I laughed or was actually happy.  When a smile was actually real. When I looked forward to something.  I've tried looking at the little things in life and focusing on them, but right now, I can't even manage that much.

Our house is gone. We are living with my father in law and I am so thankful to have that support.  The kids are having a hard time adjusting and are so upset about the possibility of having to switch schools.  I wish that I could change things, make it easier for them.  I don't know how.  I feel helpless in so many ways and that is not a feeling I adapt to easy.  My type A personality is throwing a hissy fit in my head, just another thing to add to my misery.  My mom and dad have been absolutely amazing through this in so many ways.  I hope they know how much their support and help has helped us.  Throughout all this, my husband had shoulder surgery and it was just another thing to add to the stress.  I don't have a whole lot left in me.

I am reading all these political posts and it's so bad right now.  The country is falling apart around me and I feel numb.  If you actually read this book, thank you for listening!

Obama Announces Medicare Cuts To Fund Obamacar


                        


What?  Obamacare is going to cost the taxpayer more money? It's going to hurt Medicare?  You don't say........  (insert sarcasm)


During the 2012 election campaign, Democrats denied that ObamaCare made $716 billion in cuts to Medicare in order to provide funding toward $1.9 trillion in new entitlement spending over the next ten years. 


In an announcement on Friday, however, the Obama administration revealed that it would be significantly reducing funding for Medicare, a move that one health insurance analyst said “would turn almost every plan in the industry unprofitable."

Transgender Kids Have The Run Of The School....


I try and keep my posts classy even though I may disagree with an issue but this is just beyond my tolerance. A school in Massachusetts is actually allowing transgender kids to pretty much do whatever they want and the children are ordered to support them.  This is so ludicrous.  What the hell kind of country have we become?


[ Parents across Massachusetts are upset over new rules that would not only allow transgender students to use their restrooms of their choice – but would also punish students who refuse to affirm or support their transgender classmates.
Last week the Massachusetts Department of Education issued directives for handling transgender students – including allowing them to use the bathrooms of their choice or to play on sports teams that correspond to the gender with which they identify.
The 11-page directive also urged schools to eliminate gender-based clothing and gender-based activities – like having boys and girls line up separately to leave the classroom.
Schools will now be required to accept a student’s gender identity on face value.
“A student who says she is a girl and wishes to be regarded that way throughout the school day and throughout every, or almost every, other area of her life, should be respected and treated like a girl,” the guidelines stipulate.]

Black & White Conservative?



Conservative...What does that mean?  I am learning the more I delve into politics, that there is no easy answer to that question. John McCain lost the election because he was a Rino.  Not the African big ass animal one but the Republican in name only.  So, does that mean we need to lean a little more to the right?

 I like the Constitution and feel that it is not only our right, but our duty to adhere to it.  I think government should stay out of my life as much as possible and stop spending money we don't have.  Our country needs a balanced budget, so stop taking vacations and do something besides trying to take our rights away.

Freedom OF Religion - yep, that's a winner and just to make it clear, it's not Freedom FROM Religion....big difference there!!

Gun Control - It is the 2nd Amendment and our RIGHT!!  It's not only to keep us safe but also to protect us from a tyrannical government.  You know, like Hitler?  Yeah, we don't want that happening to us!

Now comes the tricky part.... the dreaded social issues.  This is where we tend to fall apart!  We seem to think that the only view that can be called "Conservative" is our own.  Abortion. Gay marriage. Illegal immigration. These are not black and white issues and the more we try and make them so, the more people are divided.   Take gay marriage for instance, I think most people, although they may not agree with it, feel that they should have the same rights as heterosexuals have.  I have issues with the term gay marriage because I feel that marriage is between a man and a woman.  So why not use the term civil unions for everyone and leave government out of religion?

Somehow we need to stay true to our values and ideals and still manage to change the face of the Republican party.  It already has the media on it's side along with the lazy that think they deserve something for nothing.  Add to that the uneducated that can't be bothered to actually look up what a candidate stands for and the odds are already stacked against you.  I mean honestly, if we can't win against  Obama, who has already run this country into the ground, I'm honestly not sure that there is hope for the future.

I've laid out my views on issues on many different posts, so I am not going to go into that now but we need to stop striking down our own team.

But You Don't Look Sick.....


This was written by the fabulous Christine Miserandino and I wish everyone would read this!  She put into words what so many of those with invisible illnesses feel everyday.

The Spoon Theory

by Christine Miserandino www.butyoudontlooksick.com

My best friend and I were in the diner, talking. As usual, it was very late and we were eating French fries with gravy. Like normal girls our age, we spent a lot of time in the diner while in college, and most of the time we spent talking about boys, music or trivial things, that seemed very important at the time. We never got serious about anything in particular and spent most of our time laughing.
Cartoon image of Christine Miserandino holding a spoonAs I went to take some of my medicine with a snack as I usually did, she watched me with an awkward kind of stare, instead of continuing the conversation. She then asked me out of the blue what it felt like to have Lupus and be sick. I was shocked not only because she asked the random question, but also because I assumed she knew all there was to know about Lupus. She came to doctors with me, she saw me walk with a cane, and throw up in the bathroom. She had seen me cry in pain, what else was there to know?
I started to ramble on about pills, and aches and pains, but she kept pursuing, and didn’t seem satisfied with my answers. I was a little surprised as being my roommate in college and friend for years; I thought she already knew the medical definition of Lupus. Then she looked at me with a face every sick person knows well, the face of pure curiosity about something no one healthy can truly understand. She asked what it felt like, not physically, but what it felt like to be me, to be sick.
As I tried to gain my composure, I glanced around the table for help or guidance, or at least stall for time to think. I was trying to find the right words. How do I answer a question I never was able to answer for myself? How do I explain every detail of every day being effected, and give the emotions a sick person goes through with clarity. I could have given up, cracked a joke like I usually do, and changed the subject, but I remember thinking if I don’t try to explain this, how could I ever expect her to understand. If I can’t explain this to my best friend, how could I explain my world to anyone else? I had to at least try.
At that moment, the spoon theory was born. I quickly grabbed every spoon on the table; hell I grabbed spoons off of the other tables. I looked at her in the eyes and said “Here you go, you have Lupus”. She looked at me slightly confused, as anyone would when they are being handed a bouquet of spoons. The cold metal spoons clanked in my hands, as I grouped them together and shoved them into her hands.
I explained that the difference in being sick and being healthy is having to make choices or to consciously think about things when the rest of the world doesn’t have to. The healthy have the luxury of a life without choices, a gift most people take for granted.
Most people start the day with unlimited amount of possibilities, and energy to do whatever they desire, especially young people. For the most part, they do not need to worry about the effects of their actions. So for my explanation, I used spoons to convey this point. I wanted something for her to actually hold, for me to then take away, since most people who get sick feel a “loss” of a life they once knew. If I was in control of taking away the spoons, then she would know what it feels like to have someone or something else, in this case Lupus, being in control.
She grabbed the spoons with excitement. She didn’t understand what I was doing, but she is always up for a good time, so I guess she thought I was cracking a joke of some kind like I usually do when talking about touchy topics. Little did she know how serious I would become?
I asked her to count her spoons. She asked why, and I explained that when you are healthy you expect to have a never-ending supply of “spoons”. But when you have to now plan your day, you need to know exactly how many “spoons” you are starting with. It doesn’t guarantee that you might not lose some along the way, but at least it helps to know where you are starting. She counted out 12 spoons. She laughed and said she wanted more. I said no, and I knew right away that this little game would work, when she looked disappointed, and we hadn’t even started yet. I’ve wanted more “spoons” for years and haven’t found a way yet to get more, why should she? I also told her to always be conscious of how many she had, and not to drop them because she can never forget she has Lupus.
I asked her to list off the tasks of her day, including the most simple. As, she rattled off daily chores, or just fun things to do; I explained how each one would cost her a spoon. When she jumped right into getting ready for work as her first task of the morning, I cut her off and took away a spoon. I practically jumped down her throat. I said ” No! You don’t just get up. You have to crack open your eyes, and then realize you are late. You didn’t sleep well the night before. You have to crawl out of bed, and then you have to make your self something to eat before you can do anything else, because if you don’t, you can’t take your medicine, and if you don’t take your medicine you might as well give up all your spoons for today and tomorrow too.” I quickly took away a spoon and she realized she hasn’t even gotten dressed yet. Showering cost her spoon, just for washing her hair and shaving her legs. Reaching high and low that early in the morning could actually cost more than one spoon, but I figured I would give her a break; I didn’t want to scare her right away. Getting dressed was worth another spoon. I stopped her and broke down every task to show her how every little detail needs to be thought about. You cannot simply just throw clothes on when you are sick. I explained that I have to see what clothes I can physically put on, if my hands hurt that day buttons are out of the question. If I have bruises that day, I need to wear long sleeves, and if I have a fever I need a sweater to stay warm and so on. If my hair is falling out I need to spend more time to look presentable, and then you need to factor in another 5 minutes for feeling badly that it took you 2 hours to do all this.
I think she was starting to understand when she theoretically didn’t even get to work, and she was left with 6 spoons. I then explained to her that she needed to choose the rest of her day wisely, since when your “spoons” are gone, they are gone. Sometimes you can borrow against tomorrow’s “spoons”, but just think how hard tomorrow will be with less “spoons”. I also needed to explain that a person who is sick always lives with the looming thought that tomorrow may be the day that a cold comes, or an infection, or any number of things that could be very dangerous. So you do not want to run low on “spoons”, because you never know when you truly will need them. I didn’t want to depress her, but I needed to be realistic, and unfortunately being prepared for the worst is part of a real day for me.
We went through the rest of the day, and she slowly learned that skipping lunch would cost her a spoon, as well as standing on a train, or even typing at her computer too long. She was forced to make choices and think about things differently. Hypothetically, she had to choose not to run errands, so that she could eat dinner that night.
When we got to the end of her pretend day, she said she was hungry. I summarized that she had to eat dinner but she only had one spoon left. If she cooked, she wouldn’t have enough energy to clean the pots. If she went out for dinner, she might be too tired to drive home safely. Then I also explained, that I didn’t even bother to add into this game, that she was so nauseous, that cooking was probably out of the question anyway. So she decided to make soup, it was easy. I then said it is only 7pm, you have the rest of the night but maybe end up with one spoon, so you can do something fun, or clean your apartment, or do chores, but you can’t do it all.
I rarely see her emotional, so when I saw her upset I knew maybe I was getting through to her. I didn’t want my friend to be upset, but at the same time I was happy to think finally maybe someone understood me a little bit. She had tears in her eyes and asked quietly “Christine, How do you do it? Do you really do this everyday?” I explained that some days were worse then others; some days I have more spoons then most. But I can never make it go away and I can’t forget about it, I always have to think about it. I handed her a spoon I had been holding in reserve. I said simply, “I have learned to live life with an extra spoon in my pocket, in reserve. You need to always be prepared.”
Its hard, the hardest thing I ever had to learn is to slow down, and not do everything. I fight this to this day. I hate feeling left out, having to choose to stay home, or to not get things done that I want to. I wanted her to feel that frustration. I wanted her to understand, that everything everyone else does comes so easy, but for me it is one hundred little jobs in one. I need to think about the weather, my temperature that day, and the whole day’s plans before I can attack any one given thing. When other people can simply do things, I have to attack it and make a plan like I am strategizing a war. It is in that lifestyle, the difference between being sick and healthy. It is the beautiful ability to not think and just do. I miss that freedom. I miss never having to count “spoons”.
After we were emotional and talked about this for a little while longer, I sensed she was sad. Maybe she finally understood. Maybe she realized that she never could truly and honestly say she understands. But at least now she might not complain so much when I can’t go out for dinner some nights, or when I never seem to make it to her house and she always has to drive to mine. I gave her a hug when we walked out of the diner. I had the one spoon in my hand and I said “Don’t worry. I see this as a blessing. I have been forced to think about everything I do. Do you know how many spoons people waste everyday? I don’t have room for wasted time, or wasted “spoons” and I chose to spend this time with you.”
Ever since this night, I have used the spoon theory to explain my life to many people. In fact, my family and friends refer to spoons all the time. It has been a code word for what I can and cannot do. Once people understand the spoon theory they seem to understand me better, but I also think they live their life a little differently too. I think it isn’t just good for understanding Lupus, but anyone dealing with any disability or illness. Hopefully, they don’t take so much for granted or their life in general. I give a piece of myself, in every sense of the word when I do anything. It has become an inside joke. I have become famous for saying to people jokingly that they should feel special when I spend time with them, because they have one of my “spoons”.

Confession # 1

This might not be a unicorn and rainbows post, but I need to get a few things off my chest, so you've been warned.  My political views come from a few different places.  Some come from my Christianity, some from good ol' common sense and some from the logical portion of my brain.  The one constant is that I will not sit back and let government control my life nor my actions without one hell of a fight.  The reason for this post is because I've been "unfriended" on facebook because of my convictions and broadcasting of them.  It bothers me because I thought they were good friends.  They live close by and their children are the same age as mine and we developed a friendship over the years.  I've heard the phrase if you haven't lost friends then you are not passionate enough but I still can't help but feel hurt.

I didn't really get into politics until the Obama/McCain match up but I always was well educated when it came to the candidates and what they stood for.  I have no respect for those that can't even take the time to research the basics and they do the country a grave injustice.

Luckily I wasn't around for the Great Depression but I don't want to see our country go down that road again.  This man they call president, (sorry but I refuse to acknowledge this man as anything but a lying, traitor and he should be impeached) has taken this once great country that is now a shell of what it should and could be.

There comes a time when you need to pull your big girl pants on and make a stand.  If others don't like it, then that is just too bad.  There are bigger issues right now and they deserve my attention.  You know, things like... the economy, taxes, gun control, Benghazi, Fast and Furious, Obamacare,  budget, 16 Trillion debt, [ The list goes on I just don't have the time or energy to list everything this moron has done.]

I try to educate people because the MSM sure doesn't do it.  I feel it's my job to put it out there.  Too many people listen to CNN or MSNBC and take what they say as Gospel truth.  I know Fox News is slanted toward the right, but it is absolutely needed to say what the "liberal" media won't report.  We can't give in and we won't give up!  Our children's future is at stake here!


“First they came for the communists, and I did not speak out—
because I was not a communist;
Then they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—
because I was not a socialist;
Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out—
because I was not a trade unionist;
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
because I was not a Jew;
Then they came for me—
and there was no one left to speak out for me.”

Deadly 33 Week Abortion


Woman Dies following Late-Term Abortion at Carhart Clinic


This morning Operation Rescue and the Maryland Coalition for Life announced that yesterday a woman died from complications after undergoing a late-term, 33-week abortion at the hands of the infamous abortionist, LeRoy Carhart, in Germantown, Maryland.
From Operation Rescue's press release:
The woman, who came for a third trimester abortion from out-of-state, arrived at GRHC on Sunday and was seen by pro-life activists every day through Wednesday. Witnesses said she appeared “pale and weak.”
Early Thursday morning, the woman began suffering chest pain and other discomforts. Her attempts to reach Carhart were unsuccessful. The woman was taken by her family from her hotel to a nearby hospital emergency room at approximately 5:00 a.m. Efforts by hospital staff to contact Carhart or get informational assistance from the abortion clinic were unsuccessful.
The patient suffered massive internal bleeding into her abdominal cavity. She slipped into a Code Blue condition approximately six times before finally succumbing to her injuries at around 9:30 a.m. The case has been placed with the Medical Examiner for further investigation.
This is tragic news. Please join the entire SBA List staff in praying for the deceased mother and child, as well as their family during this time.
This is not an isolated incident. LifeNews.com reports that yesterday's death occurred the same day of another medical emergency at a New Mexico abortion clinic where LeRoy Carhart's associate Shelley Sella is working. Carhart himself is also responsible for another woman's death following a botched abortion in 2005.
This woman came to Maryland from out-of-state because Maryland's permissive abortion laws allow Carhart to perform abortions for any reason, throughout all nine months of pregnancy, until the moment of birth.
Women deserve better than a dangerous late-term abortion at the hands of a notorious abortionist.

I do not write too often about abortion but this just reprehensible.  How on God's beautiful earth, could you abort a 33 week old baby?  It took you 33 weeks to decide that a baby didn't fit into your plan?  I would like to outlaw abortion all together but if they don't, they ABSOLUTELY should have a term limit.  I wish I could feel sorry for her, but all the sadness I feel is for the innocent child that lost it's life before it even began!!

Liar, Liar, Pants On Fire


L for Liar or Loser (take your pick)

We have a president who doesn't value life.  Whether it's the 3700 babies lives ended before they even took a single breath or the soldiers and ambassadors that are representing and fighting for our country abroad.  We hear from Panetta that there was no communication from Obama while our brave soldiers held off enemies for 7 hours only to realize that nobody was coming for them.  Can you imagine how it would feel to know that every day you sacrificed and fought for our country, and yet when you needed help you were ignored?


Panetta was answering questions from Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) when he made it clear he had no communication with Obama outside the normal, "pre-scheduled" 5 p.m. meeting on September 11.
When asked if Obama at least called to check in as the attack unfolded Panetta said "No."
When asked if anyone from the White House called that night, Panetta said "No."
According to Panetta, the President trusted that the Sec. of Defense and Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCOS) Chairman General Martin Dempsey were aware of what military assets were and weren't near Benghazi, so he left it "up to us."

Now this is a bit confusing because the following words came out of Obama's mouth during his campaign...

"As soon as we found out the Benghazi consulate was under attack, I was on the phone with national security team."
"the minute I found out what was happening... I gave the directive."
Yet Panetta says he did not hear from Obama from 5 PM forward on the night of Sept. 11. 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Your president is a liar!  (He doesn't represent me)
How much more proof do you need, it's here in black and white.  He will say ANYTHING and do ANYTHING to further his agenda and NOBODY calls him on it.  MSNBC, CNN??  Hello?  Anyone out there? Crickets again, surprise, surprise!
People think Fox News is biased? Don't make me laugh, ha, ha, ha! (100 points if you can tell me what movie this is from)
Hmmm, there has to be some kind of law about lying under oath, ya think?

Little Bit Of Everything



Okay, this may be all over the place tonight, but so many things come to mind that I am just going to throw them out there and see if they stick.  It is now okay to kill Americans with drones but water boarding was torture.  It's funny though, where is the liberal outrage?  Sean Penn? Ashley Judd, Bruce Springsteen? Susan Sarandon? Chris Rock?  Nothing but crickets. Typical...what did I really expect?

Gun control...Does anyone see the hypocrisy here?  Guns are bad because they are killing our poor children but these same people just love Planned Parenthood and the right to kill our precious babies.  Their priorities are a bit skewed ya think?  Shall we compare....3700 babies aborted every day vs children killed by massacres and those bad things called guns.  There is no comparison and everyone knows it.  Well maybe not those celebrities that live in their la-la land and like to tell us how we should live.



Lets see... Oh yes, we cannot forget how Obamacare was going to save us, and yet everything around it has gone to hell.  Jobs are laying people off, insurance premiums are going through the roof.  Yeah, someone tell me again, how this was supposed to be sooooo good for the country? (rolling eyes)


Hillary Clinton and her "What difference did it make?"  That really is just too easy and not worth the time to comment on it.


I am sure you've heard of Obama's handling of Benghazi...Oh wait, never mind, he was no where in sight and did not give a rats ass that our brave soldiers and ambassadors were dying.  Obama really hit that one in out of the park!


Chris Rock, you can call him your father all you want, but he sure as hell isn't mine!  And if you remember in the Constitution (that piece of paper our forefathers drew up) that says that WE THE PEOPLE are Obama's boss not the other way around. Respecting the office... excuse me a moment, I literally had a LOL moment.  Apparently Chris doesn't remember his lovely and kind performance of how Bush was the worst president ever among other things.  That's the funny thing about videos, when your full of crap, they tend to bite you in the a$$!


Obama's Obamacare is just peachy.  So what if businesses have gone out of business, our checks are missing a wee bit of money and our insurance premiums are through the roof.  It will be okay because Obama promised us.

This is a little tidbit to all those that swore up and down that Hussein didn't have any nuclear materials.  Sometimes it just feels so good to say... "I TOLD YOU SO"   How is that crow tasting by the way?


"The last major remnant of Saddam Hussein's nuclear program — a huge stockpile of concentrated natural uranium — reached a Canadian port Saturday to complete a secret U.S. operation that included a two-week airlift from Baghdad and a ship voyage crossing two oceans.
The removal of 550 metric tons of "yellowcake" — the seed material for higher-grade nuclear enrichment — was a significant step toward closing the books on Saddam's nuclear legacy. It also brought relief to U.S. and Iraqi authorities who had worried the cache would reach insurgents or smugglers crossing to Iran to aid its nuclear ambitions.
What's now left is the final and complicated push to clean up the remaining radioactive debris at the former Tuwaitha nuclear complex about 12 miles south of Baghdad — using teams that include Iraqi experts recently trained in the Chernobyl fallout zone in Ukraine.
"Everyone is very happy to have this safely out of Iraq," said a senior U.S. official who outlined the nearly three-month operation to The Associated Press.

I'm calling it a night but as always, thanks for reading!  Until next time...

I am saddened that the legacy of the first black president in history will be this utter disgrace of a president. ~ me

War On Supermarkets...

Are you ready for this? Supermarkets are now required to label their food or face criminal charges. I can only shake my head and wonder how else Obamacare is going to destroy our country? Thanks a lot Michelle, now leave our food ALONE!!


"If the Food and Drug Administration gets its way, your trip to the grocery store could get a tad pricier. Supermarket owners argue a pending federal food-labeling rule that stems from the new health care law would overburden thousands of grocers and convenience store owners -- to the tune of $1 billion in the first year alone. Store owner Tom Heinen said the industry's profit margins already are razor thin. "When you incur a significant cost, there is no way that that doesn't get passed on to the customer in some form," he said. The rule stems from an ObamaCare mandate that restaurants provide nutrition information on menus. Most in the restaurant industry were supportive of the idea, but when the FDA decided to extend the provision to also affect thousands of supermarkets and convenience stores, the backlash was swift. The proposed regulation would require store owners to label prepared, unpackaged foods found in salad bars and food bars, soups and bakery items. Erik Lieberman, regulatory counsel at the Food Marketing Institute, said testing foods for nutritional data will require either expensive software or even more costly off-site laboratory assessments. Lieberman said failure to get it right comes with stiff penalties: "If you get it wrong, it's a federal crime, and you could face jail time and thousands of dollars worth of fines."

Military Cuts,Congress Raise...Ummm, Really?

Sometimes I think that the world can't get any crazier and then I watch something like this, I mean really? Our athletes make an enormous amount of money for doing something they love. Our doctors spend a ton of money getting an education and then get hit with something like Obamascare Obamacare. Our soldiers fight for our freedom leaving spouses, children, and loved ones and put their life at risk every second of every day and receives squat as pay. Then you have our politicians who get paid a boat load of money for doing absolutely nothing. Not only that but they got a pay raise. Yes, that's right, you heard me! A FREAKING pay raise. Now to top it all off Penetta recommended a pay cut for the military. It blows my mind how upside down and inside out this country is becoming. Everytime I turn on the TV or read the news I can only shake my head and pray that people wake up before this country is a shadow of the nation it could and should be.

Out Of Status.....My A$$!

"The people of this country are not illlegal," he said. "They're out of status, they're new Americans that are immigrants." So don't say they're illegal, you mean immigrant-hating evil people. They're NEW." If this isn't the biggest crock of sh@# that I have ever heard..... I mean really? ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS....you moron!!
"Illegal immigration is not just a matter of interest in states along our border with Mexico. It is having an effect on local economies, schools, health care delivery, and public safety all across the country. " Roger Wicker

A Gay Wedding Cake...And the Constituiton!



                                 

Oregon laws forcing businesses to perform acts which go against their religious beliefs are clearly forgetting this wonderful document called the Constitution.

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;"

I am not quite sure what people do not understand about the First Amendment?

When one is forced to do things which go against their religion, they are PROHIBITING THE FREE EXERCISE of said religion.

We see it in Obamacare quite clearly.  When we start forcing doctors to provide abortions and religious institutions to provide oral contraception we are directly counteracting everything the First Amendment allows us to do as citizens of this country. (However long that may be with Obama running the country into the ground)

My issues on gay marriage do not matter at all, nor do yours, they are all protected by the Constitution.  Apparently our forefathers knew what they were doing.
