Democrats and Moslem Hegemony
Saturday, June 30th, 2012 | Author:

Well, it’s like this… Jimmy Carter helped create the Islamic country of Iran.   We now have Barack Obama who helped create the Islamic hegemony in Egypt.

Jack Kelly writes an editorial “Dangerous Naivete: Obama’s Policies Allow Radicals to Rise in the Middle East“.  He notes:

If our feckless leaders keep facilitating the spread of radical Islam, ‘looking silly’ will be the least of the consequences.

What’s next?

A Well Informed Lady
Friday, June 29th, 2012 | Author:

An elderly lady was walking on the golf course on the island of Martha’s Vineyard.

She slipped and fell.

Obama who was behind her by chance, helped her to get up promptly.

She thanked him and he answered:”It was a pleasure to help you.  Do you not recognize me?  I am your President.  Are you going to vote for me in the next election?”

The elderly woman laughed and replied: “Geez… I fell on my butt… not on my head!”

That’s Why They Call Him “Moslem”…
Thursday, June 28th, 2012 | Author:

To understand why Obama is considered a Moslem supporter, you can start here: Muslim Brotherhood Wants to Re-Elect Barack Hussein Obama.  Or even read the viewpoints from the writers on the Left here: The Muslim Rumor That Just Won’t Die.   The best explanation is on the Atlas Shrugged site where Pam Geller explains Why Do So Many People Think Obama is a Muslim?

That’s Why They Call Him “Manchurian”…

Or you can read the book from historian David Maraniss that refutes many of the claims that Obama makes in his books.  Many parts of Obama’s life are carefully fabricated and promoted in his books…  Or you can read a great commentary from Mark Steyn where he talks about Obama being the first “invented” President.

Obama puts a lot of effort into class warfare…  Take a look here to see why the Washington Times talks about Obama’s socialist designs.

An Interesting True Story
Sunday, June 24th, 2012 | Author:

Once upon a time the government had a vast scrap yard in the middle of a desert.
Congress said, “Someone may steal from it at night.”
So they created a night watchman position and hired a person for the job.
Then Congress said, “How does the watchman do his job without instruction?”
So they created a planning department and hired two people, one person to write the instructions, and one person to do time studies.
Then Congress said, “How will we know the night watchman is doing the tasks correctly?”
So they created a Quality Control department and hired two people. One was to do the studies and one was to write the reports.
Then Congress said, “How are these people going to get paid?”
So they created two positions: a time keeper and a payroll officer then hired two people.
Then Congress said, “Who will be accountable for all of these people?”
So they created an administrative section and hired three people, an Administrative Officer, Assistant Administrative Officer, and a Legal Secretary.
Then Congress said, “We have had this command in operation for one year and we are $918,000 over budget, we must cut back.”
So they laid-off the night watchman.

NOW slowly, let it sink in.
Quietly, we go like sheep to slaughter. Does anybody remember the reason given for the establishment of the DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY during the Carter administration?

Anybody?
Anything?
No?

Didn’t think so!

Bottom line is, we’ve spent several hundred billion dollars in support of an agency, the reason for which very few people who read this can remember!

Ready??

It was very simple… and at the time, everybody thought it very appropriate.

The Department of Energy was instituted in August of 1977 TO LESSEN OUR DEPENDENCE ON FOREIGN OIL.

Hey, pretty efficient, huh???

AND NOW IT’S 2012 — 35 YEARS LATER — AND THE BUDGET FOR THIS “NECESSARY” DEPARTMENT IS AT $24.2 BILLION A YEAR. IT HAS 16,000 FEDERAL EMPLOYEES AND APPROXIMATELY 100,000 CONTRACT EMPLOYEES; AND LOOK AT THE JOB IT HAS DONE!

(THIS IS WHERE YOU SLAP YOUR FOREHEAD AND SAY, “WHAT WERE THEY THINKING?”)

34 years ago 30% of our oil consumption was foreign imports. Today 70% of our oil consumption is foreign imports.

Ah, yes — good old Federal bureaucracy.

NOW, WE HAVE TURNED OVER THE BANKING SYSTEM, HEALTH CARE, AND THE AUTO INDUSTRY TO THE SAME GOVERNMENT?

Hello!! Anybody Home?

The Caustic Cost of College
Friday, June 22nd, 2012 | Author:

An excellent article about the burgeoning cost of higher education…  In an article entitled, “The 12 Reasons College Costs Keep Rising“, the author covers some very valid reasons why it’s costing you more to send your children to college.   A few excerpts:

 … in reality a majority of college costs today are not for instruction–the number of administrators, broadly defined, often exceeds the number of faculty…  rapidly expanding federal student financial assistance programs have pushed up college prices, so the gains from student aid accrue less to students than to the colleges themselves,
