B plus?

December 14, 2009

(Guest Poster)

President Obama was asked today to grade his first year in office.  He gave himself a B+, but it would have been an A- if health care was passed.

Excuse me?

I give him a D+, and then only because he eventually did the right thing on Afghanistan.

He takes credit for stabilizing the economy after the financial crisis, but then states *only* $5 billion was spent by HIS administration.  I guess if TARP worked, you have to give George W. Bush credit for it then.

The economy kept going DESPITE Obama.  The “stimulus” package?  $750 billion of Democratic dream handouts, payoffs and pork, of which only $200Bn has been spent.  If the economy is doing so well, why not just cancel the rest of it before saddling our children with the extra debt?

Jobs?  The biggest thing holding the job market back right now IS Obama.  No one is going to hire when there is so much uncertainty about future tax rates, health care costs, and the payoffs to the unions.

If you want the economy to recover, here’s MY plan.

– Stop talking about spending trillions on health care takeovers, Stimulus II (Return of Pork) and cap and trade.

– Immediately stop spending money authorized in the stimulus plan.

– When TARP money is returned, apply it to deficit reduction instead of justifying more spending with it.

– Commit to not raising taxes for the next 24 months.  I know, tax cuts stimulate economic growth, but at this point I’ll settle for not making things worse.

There is still time to stop this madness.  Contact your Representatives and Senators and tell them the first step when you have a deficit is to stop spending!

And never the twain shall meet.

I agree with this.  Islam is taking over Europe and Europe is waking up.

Islams goal is to conquer the whole world,   and that is exactly what is happening in Europe,  and beginning to happen in North America and all over the world.  This is the goal of Islam.

People think the Swiss are intolerant.  I don’t think they are and I agree with their recent election to ban minarets.  And if the Muslims don’t like it,  they can go back home.  Does that sound closed minded??  Too damn bad.  Because I can guarantee you that whatever country a muslim has moved to is a damn site better than the country they came from!!

Again,  people need to assimilate and not actually take over a country and change the history of the country.  Sound closed minded? Too damn bad.

Forty four and forty one percent of a nation saying they don’t want Islam is very significant!

How Much Allah Can the Old Continent Bear?

By SPIEGEL Staff

Switzerland’s recent vote to ban the construction of new minarets has shocked and angered Muslims around the world. But the controversial move also reflects a growing sense of unease among other Europeans who have trouble coming to terms with Islam’s increased visibility.

In the small Swiss town of Langenthal, the battle over the minarets has been fought, and there seems to be no hope of reconciliation between the victors and the vanquished. “I feel abused and injured as a person,” says Mutalip Karaademi. “We wanted to hit a symbol,” says Daniel Zingg, “and we hit it.”

Tiger Woods

December 11, 2009

Poor Elin.  This is another example of someone having way too much.

Too much money,  too much recognition,  just too too much.

And it looks like he may have tossed his marriage and children away with his actions.

A serial adulterer.  I am pretty sure he will announce soon that he is a sex addict and needs help.

I hope the marriage survives.

It’s a good thing he is taking a leave from golfing to get his personal life in order.  I hope he can save his marriage.

I’ve also read that he has come clean to Elin about everything.  I hope that this is a true statement.

Tiger Woods to Take Indefinite Leave From Professional Golf

Friday, December 11, 2009

JACKSONVILLE, Florida —  Tiger Woods said Friday he is taking an indefinite leave from golf to work on saving his marriage, using the word “infidelity” for the first time in a statement posted on his Web site.

“After much soul searching, I have decided to take an indefinite break from professional golf,” Woods said. “I need to focus my attention on being a better husband, father, and person.”

The announcement came two weeks after a car accident that set in motion a shocking downfall for the world’s No. 1 player, which has included sordid allegations of numerous extramarital affairs. One woman even shared a voicemail she said Woods left her two nights before his Nov. 27 accident.

Woods has not been seen in public since the accident.

“I am deeply aware of the disappointment and hurt that my infidelity has caused to so many people, most of all my wife and children,” Woods said. “I want to say again to everyone that I am profoundly sorry and that I ask forgiveness. It may not be possible to repair the damage I’ve done, but I want to do my best to try.”

How long Woods will stay away from golf was unclear.

A year ago, he was out of golf for eight months while recovering from reconstructive knee surgery, and television ratings dropped 50 percent during his absence.

I do believe there is global warming,  but it comes and goes in patterns and I do NOT believe that humans are the main cause of it.

But that’s what Al Gore and the rest of the “scientist” would have us believe.

Of course they don’t want us to think otherwise,  this is their lifes work and certainly Al Gore wouldn’t be worth millions and millions if he couldn’t sell global warming.

I wonder if Al is an elitist and a greedy bastard?? You decide.

And just because someone hacked into a computer doesn’t mean the the info he found is cast aside,  like Ms Boxer would have you think.  I mean really?  She thinks just because someone hacked into the info that the info is not worth while?? Whatever.

Copenhagen carbon load: 1,200 limos, 140 private jets

On a normal day, Majken Friss Jorgensen, managing director of Copenhagen’s biggest limousine company, says her firm has twelve vehicles on the road. During the “summit to save the world”, which opens here tomorrow, she will have 200.

“We thought they were not going to have many cars, due to it being a climate convention,” she says. “But it seems that somebody last week looked at the weather report.”

The enemy???

The cadets at West Point are the enemies??  Since when??

I think the left has lost it’s collective mind.  They are absolutely out of control.

Chris Matthews is a dithering slog of an idiot.  I wonder if his leg is still all atingle over our fearful leader???

EDITORIAL: The enemy at West Point

Liberals continue their assault on our armed forces

By THE WASHINGTON TIMES

Insults against West Point by MSNBC pundit Chris Matthews are part of a pattern of left-wing denigrations against Americans serving in uniform. It’s a motif indicative of an anti-military mind-set that is as dangerous as it is rude.

Discussing the West Point audience’s response to President Obama’s speech about Afghanistan, Mr. Matthews quipped on Tuesday: “I saw a lot of, if not resentment, skepticism. I didn’t see a lot of warmth in that crowd out there that the president chose to address tonight. And I thought that was interesting: He went to maybe the enemy camp tonight to make his case.

To set the record straight for confused Democrats, our armed forces are not criminals and not the enemy. They are heroes. Back to you, Chris …

Islamophobia?

December 2, 2009

This is an interesting site.

http://www.islamophobia-watch.com/

It appears to be a site to watch all the wrongs against Islam and Muslims.

Boohoo.  My thought is, if you can’t conform to the rules or ways of the nation you choose to live in, then don’t whine about it.  Not all nations are Muslim nations,  nor do they want to be muslim nations.   That means that most nations in the west do not want to become muslim nations and follow Sharia law.

Assimilate is the name of the game.   There have been many many ethnic groups that have moved to different countries that have assimilated with no issues.   Mostly because they want to be a part of the new nation they have moved to.

Again,  like a thought I had in a previous post,  I wonder if these muslim nations would treat us as well as we treat muslims in our nation?   Somehow I really really doubt it.   I know for a fact we could not build a church and openly worship Jesus.   We would be persecuted heartily.  I am pretty sure I would not be allowed to worship 3-5 times a day at work either.

My last thought is:  assimilate or go back home.   We are not a muslim country and don’t want to become one.   That is what upsets muslims,  we don’t want to become a muslim nation!!   Don’t foist your Islam upon my nation—it is not welcome.
