Well, it's been a while since I've posted, but I have come in on occasion to read the posts. Hope everyone is doing well.
Since Obama is saying the economy and job market is improving, I have been looking for a better job. I have applied for more than I care to count (most I am well qualified for), but have only heard from a few. There are jobs, but most won't even break the poverty level, much less pay a mortgage, rising taxes and the ever-increasing cost of living. So much for the stimulus plan. Makes me think he only wants to put illegals to work! Living in a small town and an area that is losing more jobs than are being created is somewhat depressing, to say the least.
Hope everyone had a nice Independence Day weekend. Independence Day came with a "bang" around here, literally. About 6 months ago, I got new neighbors. I found them burning their trash in MY burning barrel! Since there is a dumpster only half the distance from their door than to MY burning barrel, I not so politely told them to stay out of my back yard. Anyway, to make a long story short (you probably get an idea what kind of trash moved in there), on July 4th, this idiot shot his girlfriend with a shotgun!! She is in fair condition with wounds to her left side and leg. But even worse than that, unknowing to me and most others living around here, this idiot had his elderly mother living there, too. She was never let out of the place, was found bed-ridden and not bathed in months, barely cared for at all. Everyone around here was appalled when we found this out. Authorities placed her in a nursing home the following day, and our thoughts and prayers go out to her.
I guess I rambled on enough now. Wishing everyone the best, keep up the good fight and maintain the attitude that things will get better!
Arizona passes a new immigration law and Obama calls it irresponsible. So, my question is this... What is wrong with carrying and showing an I.D.? Have any of you been asked to show an I.D.? I know I have many times. When I was younger, there were a number of good local bands I would go see at the local nightclubs. I had to show an I.D. or I wouldn't be admitted, period. And I was obviously over 21. This country should operate in much the same way, no I.D. or other proof you're a citizen, you get deported, period. I, in no way, shape or form, have any problem with someone from another country wanting to come here to start a better life, but it must be done legally. Cross the border in some other countries, even mistakenly, and they lock you up even if you want to run back out. I see nothing discriminating or unconstitutional about having and showing an I.D. or proof of citizenship, but could that be because I AM a citizen?
Here we go again! 3 Navy SEALs are being tried for assaulting the terrorist responsible for the killing and mutilation of four Blackwater USA security guards. Claiming a fat lip and a punch in the stomach, this piece of human trash deserves no less than what he bestowed upon those guards. Where is this administration? I would have pardoned these honorable soldiers without hesitation and sent them back to duty immediately! Few know what it takes to be accepted before training, and even fewer know the physical and mental training involved to become a SEAL. To even allow this to go to a trial shows how much respect this administration has for the men and women in our Armed Forces. These fine men and women take an oath to uphold the constitution and protect our nation and do it well. It would be good if those in politics would actually adhere to the oath they take instead of just reciting it.
I would like to be considered as the Classic/Muscle Car Czar. Everyone should have one of those big-block, high-horsepower, gas-guzzling, tire-smoking, ground-pounding hot rods from the past in their garages. There is nothing better (except for a Top Fuel motor) than the sound of a hi-lift camshaft, all-American hot rod idling at a red light or stop sign.
I believe there are many who would not fire on their own countrymen, especially those who understand the oath they took, BUT, I do feel that many local and state police would, some of whom would love the opportunity.
Minutes after the AP called Brown the winner in Mass., the liberals (Maddow, Matthews, and that pathetic Olberman) tried to make excuses for losing the election. Every reason but the right reasons were discussed, from a bad campaign to people not understanding (Obama says people are still mad about what went on over the last 8 yrs. LOL). The people DO understand. They understand this administration is spending without limit, making deals behind closed doors (so much for transparency), bailing out and trying to run private businesses, giving terrorists rights with domestic trials along with paying for their lawyers and trying to force their agendas (including global warming) down our throats while turning a deaf ear to the people. They now have until November to make up more excuses on why they are losing their support. Could the Tea Parties have anything to do with it? Naaa, we are just a bunch of lunatics who don't get it....or are we??
weezo, are you running rampant hitting the "thumbs down" button again? Children should not be up this late!!
One would think it's difficult to lose something she never had.
Maybe we could make a 2 for 1 trade...Pelosi, Reid, Boxer, Watters Specter, and Kennedy for the 3 Americans...
They probably would want REAL Americans....
How about Obama?...
CRAP!! He isn't American either!!
I give up!
"Leave the war to the people who have the will to see it through and the country to people who are willing to defend it". This statement says it all. Are you "willing to defend it?".... You bet I am!!
