Just a few things we can thank the space program for –

I guess we know what NASA will do next, after it lays off thousands of workers – reach out to the Muslim world.


The end of a glorious era – The last flight of the space shuttle

I watched the final lift off of the space shuttle this morning and cried.  This is the end of something that made us a great nation.  Just one more Obama failure and a failure to America.

I won’t mention the amount of jobs that are going to be lost because of this. You’re smart enough to already know that.


The Obama campaign will underestimate us at their own peril

I still can’t get over how mad this makes me:

“Millionaires and Billionaires” laughing at the waste of money and the fact that so many Americans are out of work. The head of GE giggling??? Who does this man think he is?

I was furious the first time I saw it and I’m still furious.

The news of 9.2% unemployment this morning reminded me of how cavalier this president is/was about the mess we are in. And then to hear from his lackey’s that Americans don’t care about the GDP or the debt ceiling. They only care about how things effect them in their own little world.

Oh Paaaaaaaahleaze! How condescending and what an insult!

Who do these people think they are talking to or about? I’m fairly certain they have no idea how smart and informed most of us are.

Underestimate us at your own peril, Obama!


Levin – the left wants it both ways

As Levin said today on his radio show, the Obama Regime is suing Arizona for asking proof of citizenship when arresting individuals, but they are trying to stop Texas from killing a monster because they never asked for proof.

So, I ask these communists, which is it? How do you want it, because you can’t have it both ways.

And who speaks for this little girl who he raped and killed? We have female –  FEMALE – Supreme Court justices who would be screaming for abortion rights but will not speak for this little girl?

Where is the so-called compassion from the left now? They aren’t speaking for the rights of this girl or her family. They are, as they always do, speaking for killers and monsters:  like cop killer Mumia Abu-Jamal, who I’ve written about before.

It would be nice to see the outrage that has been all over the news over the verdict in the Casey Anthony case, instead all over the news over this. How dare any nation or organization interfere with a sovereign state, within this country? The United Nations are the first to be trashing America for imposing ourselves on other nations but they are not only investigating Arizona for human rights violations (can you believe that?), now trying to tell the state of Texas how to adjudicate and carry out their laws!

We need a president Perry or someone like him who will tell the UN to go to hell and go to hell in a BIG way!

There are 2 little girls who are dead. One who no one will ever be held to account for but another who’s killer has been convicted and sentenced. His sentence was carried out today.

At this man, and anyone who supports him, is where our rage should really be directed.


WH Rural Council and our farmers

From my friend Boudica’s blog. Please read it.  This is pretty scary stuff.


Important stuff they don’t teach you in school

 William Whipple, from New Hampshire,  was an original signer of the Declaration of Independence. He was a merchant, a judge, a Revolutionary War General and a member of the Continental Congress.

from Yahoo.com: Whipple freed his slave, Prince Whipple, who had fought with him in the war and was one of a group of slaves who had petitioned the Legislature for their freedom. Prince Whipple also is buried in the Old North Cemetery.


I’ll take that check, please

From the WeeklyStandard.com:

When the Obama administration releases a report on the Friday before a long weekend, it’s clearly not trying to draw attention to the report’s contents. Sure enough, the “Seventh Quarterly Report” on the economic impact of the “stimulus,” released on Friday, July 1, provides further evidence that President Obama’s economic “stimulus” did very little, if anything, to stimulate the economy, and a whole lot to stimulate the debt.

The report was written by the White House’s Council of Economic Advisors, a group of three economists who were all handpicked by Obama, and it chronicles the alleged success of the “stimulus” in adding or saving jobs. The council reports that, using “mainstream estimates of economic multipliers for the effects of fiscal stimulus” (which it describes as a “natural way to estimate the effects of” the legislation), the “stimulus” has added or saved just under 2.4 million jobs — whether private or public — at a cost (to date) of $666 billion. That’s a cost to taxpayers of $278,000 per job.

In other words, the government could simply have cut a $100,000 check to everyone whose employment was allegedly made possible by the “stimulus,” and taxpayers would have come out $427 billion ahead.


Krauthammer: middle-aged maybe never work again

From RealClearPolitics.com:

“The problem is at the consumer level, confidence is low and that is because, as you showed, showed we had underemployment with one out of every six Americans. The worst element of that is that among the unemployed, against the American history, more than approaching half, have [been] unemployed for over six months. That is historically unprecedented in the United States. That is a phenomenon that is seen often in Europe, rarely seen here. In 2007 the average time to get a new job was five weeks. It’s now near six months. And that implies a whole segment of the population, the more elderly or the middle-aged who may never get employed again,” Charles Krauthammer said on FOX News this evening.


For Americans, Failure is Not Inevitable

In a speech to the Heritage Foundation, Victor Davis Hanson said that “decline is a choice.” He’s right. As Americans, we can choose to do nothing and fade into a black hole or we can choose not to and come out even shinier and sharper.

We have been told for over 2 years, by this president that we are not exceptional, that we do not deserve the wealth (as a nation and as individuals) that we have earned. We see it in the movies and on television: we are not the good guys anymore. Americans are evil and greedy, we are gluttons, we are wasteful, fat and bloated.  This is the message we are hearing from our so-called leaders, from the celebrities that we (falsely) admire, and from the educators in academia whose salaries we pay.

This message is not new coming from teachers or celebrities – we’ve been hearing that for decades from those corners – but it is new coming from our nation’s leader.

It is new for Americans to see a president bow to monarchs. A president who not only feels submissive to the rest of the world but wants to make the nation so, as well. In his warped mind, he believes it. He’s not proud to be an American and as all Americans know, his wife has only once been proud to be one.

Obama bowing to the Saudi king/WND.com

I believe that he is preparing us for the fall that he is creating. I believe that he wants us to feel unworthy of our place in the world so that when he ushers us into 3rd world status, we will be not only prepared but, feel deserving of that place.

The man who said he was going to be a unifier has divided us further. We are more polarized as a nation now, than since the Civil War. From his first missteps (“the police acted stupidly”) to his latest (“I’m here. Congress should stay here too” as he prepares for a weekend at Camp David and a vacation in Martha’s Vineyard and another round of golf on Sunday) he has proven himself to be completely out of touch with the people who put him there – and the people who didn’t put him there but who he represents.

Obama’s uplifting message (Yes We Can!) has become one of misery and depression. He’s produced a national gloom that we must shake off before we become forever mired in this depression.

We do not have to accept his vision of America in decline. It’s a choice. We must stand up and celebrate being citizens of the greatest nation and society mankind has ever known.

The time is now.
