Good Morning Campers! I had hoped to have more breast cancer awareness stuff for you today, but due to a bit of personal problems that all kind of piled up at the last second, you’ll have to make due with what I have here. So….I’m probably in more need of a laugh than most of you, so what do ya say we get on with it…
Sally and Harry have been married for 50 years and are being
interviewed by a reporter from the local newspaper.
“So Sally,” asks the reporter, “I know today is your golden wedding anniversary, how old, exactly, are you?”
“I am 78 years old,” replies Sally proudly. “And I hope I live to be 100.”
“Well I hope your wish comes true,” says the reporter.
The reporter then turned to Harry and asked, “And how old are you, Harry?”
“I’m also 78 years old,” replies Harry, “and, please God, I should live to be 101.”
“But why,” asked the reporter, “would you want to live one year longer than your wife?”
“Well, to tell you the truth,” replies Harry, “I would like to have at least one year of peace and quiet.”
Gotta love the New Yorker Magazine. How many of you watched the debates? Did you get the same impression that I (and obviously the New Yorker) did? I hope America is paying attention.
Road rage paid back! You gotta laugh.
I just found something to add to my Christmas wish list!!!! I want one!!!
Family Circle announced that Michelle Obama beat Ann Romney in
“Little House On The Prairie” may hit the big screen soon. Just think,
that is not Muslim and unhappy in every
country that is!
Here’s a great blog that asks a really good question…why aren’t more people making a stink about this? Come on Mitt…here’s an easy one for you…
THE NO. 1 ISSUE THAT SHOULD DEFEAT OBAMA
Exclusive: Joseph Farah identifies BHO policy proposal GOP could exploit to victory.
There’s an issue out there that can ensure Barack Obama is defeated in 2012.
It’s not Obamacare.
It’s not his religious views.
It’s not his commitment to socialist and anti-American causes.
It’s not even the birth certificate and his eligibility issues.
I believe the issue that will take Obama down if Republicans make it an issue is his administration’s proposed budget cuts for active-duty military personnel and military retirees – but not civilian defense workers.
Do you get the picture?
Obama has tipped his hand. He’s showing the entire country what he thinks about our military service people – the people who risk their lives for their country are worth less than civilian defense workers who push papers around in Washington .
Chances are you don’t know much about this story. There’s a good reason for that. The Big Media don’t want you to know, because they recognize the political radioactivity it represents. This is the Death Star for Obama’s re-election campaign. If Americans know about this – Republicans, Democrats and independents all oppose him.
Here are the details of the story broken by the intrepid Bill Gertz:
a.. “The Obama administration’s proposed defense budget calls for military families and retirees to pay sharply more for their health care, while leaving unionized civilian defense worker’ benefits untouched.”
b.. “Several congressional aides suggested the move is designed to increase the enrollment in Obamacare’s state-run insurance exchanges.”
c.. “The disparity in treatment between civilians and uniformed personnel is causing a backlash within the military that could undermine recruitment and retention.”
d.. “Significantly, the plan calls for increases between 30 percent to 79 percent in Tricare annual premiums for the first year. After that, the plan will impose five-year increases ranging from 94 percent to 345 percent – more than three times current levels.”
Think about this – and imagine how you would campaign against Obama on just this one issue.
U.S. military service people don’t get the equipment they need to do their jobs. They don’t have the manpower they need to complete their missions. Their families scrimp and sacrifice financially so they can serve their country. They risk their lives and give their lives for their country.
But, according to the Obama administration, unionized civilian defense workers, sitting behind their comfortable desks in Washington , deserve better treatment than our heroes serving overseas in Iraq and Afghanistan and elsewhere.
It’s almost unbelievable that Obama could serve up a slow-pitch softball like this for Republicans to knock out of the park.
It’s even more unbelievable that none of them has.
Which is why I write this column.
Obama needs to pay for this. Whether or not he backs off, whether or not Congress throws his budget out the window, whether or not these cuts are ever enacted, Obama needs to pay a big political price for showing his cards. Republicans need to remind Americans every day that Obama is the guy who wants to cut medical care for soldiers, sailors, Marines and airmen – all while preserving the goodies for Washington bureaucrats.
Men and women who put their lives on the line, who risked their health and well-being, are treated like second-class citizens in ObamaWorld.
He signaled his absolute contempt for the U.S. military – not just the institution of the military, but the active-duty grunts on the front lines.
This is an easy one for the American people to understand.
So where are the Republicans?
Where are the talk-show hosts?
Where is the blogosphere chatter?
Obama has stepped in something very smelly here. Why aren’t more Obama critics making hay of it?
Can you understand it?
ALWAYS BARGAIN FROM A POSITION OF STRENGTH
Obama and the Muslim brotherhood would like The United States to lose it’s “position of strength” and its bargaining power!
If we lose our military, we would lose our credibility in the world political arena. So, weaken our military and our credibility is weakened.

It’s called the video that cost Obama the Re-Election. I’m not sure about that, but I will say, it is a parade of some of the worst examples of democratic bullshit to ever hit the airways. Watch it and judge for yourself. But remember, it’s going to take a whole lot more than a simple video to shut down this evil regime.
Now, if you feel up to it, go and visit his website at http://stolenhistory.org/
And yet, what does the media focus on? This quote by Romney:
“There are 47 percent of the people who will vote for the president no matter what. All right, there are 47 percent who are with him, who are dependent upon government, who believe that they are victims, who believe the government has a responsibility to care for them, who believe that they are entitled to health care, to food, to housing, to you-name-it. That that’s an entitlement. And the government should give it to them. And they will vote for this president no matter what…
“And I mean the president starts off with 48, 49 … he starts off with a huge number. These are people who pay no income tax. Forty-seven percent of Americans pay no income tax. So our message of low taxes doesn’t connect. So he’ll be out there talking about tax cuts for the rich. I mean that’s what they sell every four years. And so my job is not to worry about those people. I’ll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives. What I have to convince the five to ten percent in the center that are independents that are thoughtful, that look at voting one way or the other depending upon in some cases emotion, whether they like the guy or not.”
Now granted, I believe there are bunches of people who Mr. Romney is putting in that category that don’t belong there, but on the flipside, few people believe they are “takers” instead of makers, so the potential of those people who he really is talking about actually being affronted by his comments is pretty small. Naturally, he’s not speaking of those on retirement incomes or other earned government checks, but of those gimme entitlement government-tit-suckers who think they are “owed” something just for turning oxygen into carbon dioxide.
Yes, Sunshine, we are talking about you. Why don’t you go out and get a job? If I can have 4 jobs (1 full-time and 3 part-time) at the same time, to make ends meet, work more than 90 hours a week, every week when I needed it, then most anyone (who is physically capable) can get at least 1 job to help defray the cost of the government’s support.
Not that I would agree with this in all cases, but can you imagine how much money the government would save if they did a couple of really easy things?
Even if they gave out the difference between the support you would be getting and the job you have, even at minimum wage, that would be a huge savings.
Next, let’s make a drug test mandatory to receive support (yes, I’m singing that old song, and will continue to sing it until they make it so).
and finally, we have to do something to make it less appealing to the baby-making factories that just have kids to collect the check. I truly feel as though that is child abuse. It’s not kids because you want to bring a life into this world, because you love children, it’s the ones that are doing it for a pay check….and no…I don’t know how to tell the difference, or what we can do about it or anything else…
It seems like any REAL penalty is going to hurt the children more than the factories who are producing them. I applaud the states that are forcing the fathers to support their children, but the fix in this case is often as expensive as the problem.
What do you do with a factory who says she doesn’t know who the father is? Paternity tests? You still have to have someone to test against. Make her give up a list of “possibilities”? Are you going to force everyone on her list to take a blood test? I’m pretty sure that there are laws against that sort of thing.
How about if there is no support without the name of the father? and only if he denies it, does the state do a paternity test. And she doesn’t get any support for the baby until a father is proven…and if she can’t properly support her child, I know there are LOTS of good parents, who can’t have children, who would love to adopt a healthy baby.
And no matter what….Drugs = No Support!
Yeah, I’m with you Mitt…I’m tired of paying for them, too.
