As a recap, since September, The Senate has approved a $1.1 Trillion new spending bill, they have tentatively approved Health Care with a final vote scheduled for Christmas Eve. Merry Christmas, America...ObamaCare is a massive spending bill which includes mandatory abortion funding that we will all pay for, and of course there are several little 'sweetheart' deals Obama gave to 7 Senators.
Cap and Trade is still in the shadows, but expect them to pass it in the dark of night.
Obama is bankrupting our country and if you can't see it or don't believe it, for Pete's sake, PLEASE research, please open your eyes, and most importantly, PLEASE help us wake up America.
We had been on the road eight days and are back in the states now. Yay!! The trip down was good. Weather was great and no problems at Canadian Customs this time. I usually take lots of pictures of the wildlife we see, but not this time. We did see a few black bear, lots of sheep and bison. The bison are not so shaggy and ugly this time of year. And, of course, the sheep are quite a sight to watch as they traverse the rocky mountains with little ease.
What will we do now? As always, we have no concrete plans....except to keep heading towards warmer weather.
I loved being able to see the grandchildren and was even blessed to be able to take them on an out of state trip with me. It was the first time I had seen my youngest, who is almost two years old. She's a little beauty....small and petite, kind of like a china doll. The 5 year old, Evan, is a kick! Smart, well behaved and a riot to hang out with...all boy. My oldest grandchild is now 12, and almost as tall as I am. She's growing in to a beautiful young lady, yet at the same time she is at that awkward age learning who and what she wants to be. Anyway, I would say they were the highlight of my summer and the best part is I've got the memories always.
Skagway (and our jeep)
Eight days up the Alaska Highway, and as always, a gorgeous trip complete with awesome scenery and wildlife at every corner. We always keep a record of which animals and how many we see each day. On this trip, we saw at least 1 bear every single day, but usually spotted them in groups of 2 or 3. The best part was, we actually saw a grizzly bear (which I thought was awesome), and the rest being black bear. Sheep, Caribou, moose, bison and eagles were among the other wildlife we encountered. It doesn't get any better than seeing wildlife in their natural environment....and, how in the world do those sheep manage to ascend and descend on those rocky mountains?
This year, we decided on a side trip to Skagway...and so glad we did. What a neat little town. Downtown Skagway has lots of shops reminiscent of the gold rush days. We had lunch at a place called the Red Onion...back in the day it was a brothel, and for $5.00 today you can have a 15 minute tour of the 'upstairs.' We elected instead for a burger and beer..expensive, but quite good.
In the year 1898, the Gold Rush brought thousands to Skagway. The town boomed and the busted shortly thereafter. Unfortunately, in April, 1898, there was an avalanche that killed almost 2,000 people....they buried the victims right there and aptly named it 'Slide Cemetary'. What I found pretty cool was the fact that they had headstones, made of lumber, with the name of the deceased, where they were from, and the year of death, 1898. Hey, I love history and delving in to how people lived and survived in those times.
The side trip to Skagway was the only RV park stay we had on the trip. There are so many places along the Alaska Highway to pull off the road. On this trip, we discovered a great spot, right on a lake. Quiet, peaceful and beautiful. Can't beat that!
So, we are here for the summer. It's coming home for us. (Just wish it was a tad bit warmer).
WASHINGTON (AP) — The House has approved the "cash for clunkers" bill to boost lagging auto sales.
The bill would allow consumers to turn in their gas-guzzling cars and trucks for a $4,500 voucher for more fuel-efficient vehicles.
President Barack Obama has encouraged Congress to approve consumer incentives for new car purchases as part of the government's work to restructure General Motors and Chrysler. The House approved the bill 298-119.
Ironic timing, isn't it? With Chrysler in bankruptcy, GM in bankruptcy....who's going to want to buy a new car from a bankrupt company? No problem!! Our Government, aka Obama-ass has a plan! Just turn in your clunker to the new Government Motors, (which must be driveable, no older than 1984 and get more than 18 mpg), they will give you a voucher for $4500.00 TOWARDS the price of a new fuel effiicient matchbox! Such a deal! NOT.
Do you have a job? Do you qualify for financing? Can you afford the payment? Should you go in to debt for a new car? Obviously, our Government run auto company thinks you should.
I foresee our Government putting Ford out of business, because I'd be willing to bet this new incentive will be applicable only to the cars GM will sell.
I also foresee, this bill turning in to a mandatory thing. Our Government (Obama-ass) doesn't want us driving SUV's, pickups, or paid for older models. They want us driving tiny deathtraps. All in the name of carbon emissions.
It's been a few days since IslamObama's speech in Cairo, Egypt. I have listened to the speech and I have read opinions of others regarding it.
The conclusion I have drawn is that his speech was never intended to be an outreach to the Muslim world, they (muslims) already acknowledge Obama is one of them. His speech was rather a continuing effort on his part to desensitize Americans into accepting Islam as a peaceful religion and Muslims as peaceful people.
Obama has already won the vote and support of 58% of the American population simply by speaking. He has no track record, he has no experience, he has no plan...for anything.
Yet, 58% of Americans hold on to his every word with bated breath and will believe everything that comes out of the man's mouth.
He had only to convince Americans that Islam is peace, Muslims are peaceful people and there are no terrorists. He took another step towards that goal last week in Cairo as he praised Islam. No matter that his facts were inaccurate or that his interpretation of the Koran was misleading, Americans loved every minute and ate every word up, then they sat back and watched another episode of Jon & Kate.
Most Americans are mesmerized by Obama's words....some even believe him to be the messiah...a god. Our younger generation are inspired by him as they see him to be one of them. The truth is Obama is NOT one of them. He's not even an American.
Bravo, Obama. Mission accomplished.
Muslims/terrorists have been infiltrating every country, including the U.S. at an alarming rate. Their goal is to become the supreme religion and implement Sharia Law in every country.They are full of hatred towards ALL nonbelievers. They are taught to hate, taught to kill. Do not be ignorant about their true motives.
Please go to the website barenakedislam (link to site is on the sidebar) and watch the videos there. It will open your eyes to the truth about Islam and Obama.View the videos, do the research.
Ask yourself why Obama has directed Attorney General Holder to enforce stricter laws against those who speak out against Muslims. Ask yourself why Obama continues his supposed effort to 'open dialogue' with Muslim/Terrorist countries. Ask yourself why Obama is taking control of our banks, auto industry, etc. No, really, ask yourself these questions and be honest when searching for the answers.
Obama is quickly destroying our country. With his actions, we are becoming weaker as a nation. As he grows our government and takes control of every sector, our freedoms and liberties are being stripped away a day at a time. It is so subtle most will not recognize the consequences, nor will they recognize this country.
Bravo, America. This must be the change you voted for.
I don't pretend to understand all the technical data like curves, treasury markets, etc., but I do understand and can definitely see through the bullcrap our Government is pulling with the economy. I know enough to understand you cannot spend your way out of debt, and this is exactly what Obama, Bernanke and Geithner are doing. Yes, the market has recovered somewhat since March, but it is all smoke and mirrors.
Please read the article, I promise it will be worth your time.
This determination is a legally required waiver under said act to continue to delay the May 31, 1999 deadline for moving the U.S. Embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.
Nearly identical memos like this have been issued every six months for the last decade.
Standard procedure, no big deal, right? Well in the Bush years the memo contained the sentence, "My Administration remains committed to beginning the process of moving our embassy to Jerusalem."
The Obama team has edited that passage out. This explains the Friday evening release.
NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) -- A top Obama administration lawyer urged the Supreme Court on Monday to allow Chrysler's bankruptcy to proceed, noting that the needs of the economy outweigh the needs of the deal's detractors.
U.S. Solicitor General Elena Kagan filed a request that the court deny an appeal by Indiana pension funds that had invested in Chrysler and say they will lose $6 million because of the bankruptcy.
Kagan defended the use of funds from the Troubled Asset Relief Program and argued that Indiana's appeal lacks legal merit. In addition, she said the losses to the Indiana funds "cannot outweigh" the potential broader problems a collapse of Chrysler would present.
"As an economic matter ... blocking the transaction would undoubtedly have grave consequences," Kagan wrote
This is unbelievable. Obama thugs using strong arm tactics again. The rules of law take a backseat to the economy??!! This is pure and simple tyranny!
Get Ready. It's coming. The Change (chains) You Can Believe In.
Obama's pushing CONgress to push through Health Care Reform. It ain't gonna be pretty. It ain't gonna be cheap. But, hey, that's what America wanted, right? They wanted change, they voted for change, they're gonna get change.
Just not sure how well they're going to like it. Oh well. Ignorance is bliss as they say.
Obama is protecting muslims in our country by issuing orders for stricter laws.
Obama has taken control of the auto industry.
Obama is in the process of nationalizing the banks.
Obama is appointing an unprecedented number of muslims to his cabinet.

Work was good: The sun was out, the snow was gone and the blackflies hadn't begun to hatch. But now that work is over and Noel, 60, and more than 60,000 other Americans hired in April to help with the 2010 census are out of work once more.
It's a familiar predicament in today's economy, in which some 2 million people searching for full-time work have had to settle for less, and unemployment is much higher than the official rate when all the Americans who gave up looking for jobs are counted, too.
Because of the surge of hiring for the census, April unemployment only rose to 8.9 percent — a much slower increase than had been feared. Figures out today show unemployment now stands at 9.4 percent.
But consider these numbers:
_The 9.4 percent May unemployment rate is based on 14.5 million Americans out of work. But that number doesn't include discouraged workers, people who gave up looking for work after four weeks. Add those 792,000 people, and the unemployment rate is 9.8 percent.

Statement of Attorney General Eric Holder on Department of Justice’s Outreach and Enforcement Efforts to Protect American Muslims
Thursday, June 4, 2009
U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder released the following statement relating to President Obama’s historic speech today in Cairo, Egypt:
“The President’s pledge for a new beginning between the United States and the Muslim community takes root here in the Justice Department where we are committed to using criminal and civil rights laws to protect Muslim Americans. A top priority of this Justice Department is a return to robust civil rights enforcement and outreach in defending religious freedoms and other fundamental rights of all of our fellow citizens in the workplace, in the housing market, in our schools and in the voting booth.
“There are those who will continue to want to divide by fear - to pit our national security against our civil liberties - but that is a false choice. We have a solemn responsibility to protect our people while we also protect our principles.”
President Ronald Reagan
Reagan's speech in 1984 on D-Day. Now Reagan was a GREAT PRESIDENT. He loved his country, he defended his country, he defended our military, and he had a conscience. Please watch the short video for one of the best speeches ever by President Ronald Reagan.

Definitions of czar on the Web:
a male monarch or emperor (especially of Russia prior to 1917)
a person having great power
A PERSON HAVING GREAT POWER.
Another day in Obamaland, and yet another Czar appointed. To date, there have been 14 Czars appointed by Obamassiah.
Today, Cameron Davis has been appointed as the Great Lake Czar by Obama. The long and short of Davis's Czar position is that he will oversee the spending of over $20 Billion to clean up the Great Lakes. Yeah, okay.
But, back to my point. What in the world is going on? Do you realize that the Czars Obamassiah has appointed will report to and answer ONLY to dear leader himself. No need to go through Congress. The Czars have all the power and authority. Here's a list of Czars thus far:
Border Czar: Alan Bersin,
Energy Czar: Carol Browner
Urban Czar: Adolfo Carrion, Jr.
Infotech Czar: Vivek Kundra
Faith-based Czar: Joshua DuBois
Health Reform Czar: Nancy-Ann DeParle
New TARP Czar: Herb Allison
Stimulus accountability Czar: Earl Devaney
Non-proliferation Czar: Gary Samore
Terrorism Czar: John Brennan
Regulatory Czar: Cass Sunstein
Drug Czar: Gil Kerlikowske
Car Czar: Steven Rattner
Guantanamo closure Czar: Daniel Fried...and our newest czar,
Great Lakes Czar: Cameron Davis
Earlier this week, it was announced Obama will be appointing a cyber security Czar. 15 Czars and counting...
So, we've got Czars controlling the internet, the borders, drugs, the auto industry, the stimulus program, TARP, energy religion, Gitmo and health reform. Hmm....yeah, that pretty much covers it. All that's left is a banking Czar, (soon to come) then Obama and all the Czars will have complete 100% power and control over absolutely every aspect of our lives. There will be no need for Congress. No need for Americans to vote for elected officials, because there will be no need for elected officials....just Czars. The Czars have only to answer to dear leader himself.
Are you getting it yet????????? I feel like I'm living in a Dr. Seuss book. Ugh.
Remember this young army recruiter? He was a young American man ready to serve his country, when his life was taken away with one shot fired from the hand of a black Muslim convert....in Arkansas. I pray for his family and may God bless his soul.
Looks as though the FBI and other law enforcement officials have been told to 'back off'...'. told to stop investigating terrorism activities of black muslim converts.
SAY WHAT?! You know, I find myself shaking my head every day with sadness and shame at the actions of our president. Obama the energizer monkey just keeps on taking away our freedoms and liberties, one day at a time. Please people, wake up to this reality. And pray for our country.
Pamela Geller's site, Atlas Shrugs is where this comes from. She breaks down the U.S.'s muslim president's speech in a way that will open your eyes (if they are still closed to Obama's real agenda).

This topic has been on my mind alot lately. I don't know why, I can't explain it. But, I have been bothered and burdened with the abortion issue and the truth that accompanies it.
THEN WE HAD THIS:
Dr. Tiller - late term abortionist. Murdered last Sunday while attending church.
I'd be willing to wager that whatever church Dr. Tiller attended was not preaching or teaching God's word, the Bible. Most likely, his church was officiated by someone like Joel Osteen talking in that 'feel good, all is good, warm, fuzzy, touchy, feely' manner. God is very clear. Thou shalt not kill. There is no negotiating on this. As always, God's position on everything leaves nothing to doubt and nothing to chance.
No man, or woman, could possibly sit in a church pew Sunday after Sunday listening to the living word of God....and then come Monday morning, kill a baby. And, not just one baby, not two babies....try 60,000 babies! Dr. Tiller was responsible for killing 60,000 babies (late term pregnancies). Some pro-choicers would argue the mother's life was in danger. Bullcrap! Research it. Some reasons these women gave went like this:
"I don't want to give my BABY up for adoption" - it's a baby! a living being for crying out loud.
"I don't have time in my life for a BABY" -
IF YOU HAVE A WEAK STOMACH, DO NOT SCROLL DOWN FROM THIS POINT.
THE PICTURE IS OF AN 8 WK. OLD FETUS (not a late term fetus). IT'S A BABY!
If just one person who has ever had any doubts about when life begins sees this picture, I pray their doubts will be swept away. This picture is without a doubt, a BABY. When I hear that abortions in our country alone are 6,000,000...I cringe. The only comfort I can find within my heart is that I know all these babies are with our Lord. Thank you God.

President Barack Obama sent the document to the Congress May 5 for review and possible revision, and the Government Printing Office subsequently posted the draft declaration on its web site. As of Tuesday evening, the reasons for that action remained a mystery, the Times said.
Ok, so BHO submitted the 266 pages to congress on the 5th of May. Here we are, almost 4 weeks later. Has this report been on the web for all the world to see over the past month? And none of the clowns at the White House noticed? Uh huh. I love the statement 'the reasons for that action remained a mystery.'
Accident. Mystery. White House. U.S. Government. Barack Hussein Obama.
If this action is any indication of the (in)competence of our Government, be afraid. Very afraid.
So, what? Push 'send' to congress....AND, push 'send' to publish on the internet? Yup, sounds about right.
Obviously the United States and Saudi Arabia have a long history of friendship, we have a strategic relationship," Obama said in a response to a reporter's question about the purpose of the visit. " . . . I thought it was very important to come to the place where Islam began and to seek His Majesty's counsel and to discuss with him many of the issues that we confront here in the Middle East."
If you are not a Muslim WHY would it be important to go to the place where Islam began? It wouldn't. But, if you are a Muslim, hmmm.....yup!
Kissing ass and rubbing elbows with the King is just a prelude before O'man heads to Cairo, Egypt. There he will deliver the much anticipated speech to the 1.5 Billion Muslims worldwide.
He claims to want to 'open the dialogue' with Muslims. Translation: "I want to apologize to the Muslims for America, after all, America is such an evil country."
The Muslim population SHOULD be apologizing to the United States! Remember 9/11? Remember the U.S.S. Cole? Remember the World Trade Center? Remember the Muslim pig that killed an army recruiter just this week?
Obama is a dangerous man and a threat to the very country that elected him.
A few weeks ago, the O'man said America is not a Christian nation, and now he says we are a Muslim country. Could it be because he, himself is Muslim? Absolutely. And for anyone not believing it, or denying it, are fools. Pull your heads out people!

President Obama looks out the window of Marine One as the helicopter lands on the South Lawn of the White House May 22 (White House photo) JERUSALEM – The number of Muslims in the U.S. would make America "one of the largest Muslim countries in the world," claimed President Obama in an interview released last night.
His assertion, which is factually inaccurate, comes one day before he is set to deliver a much-anticipated address to the Muslim world from Cairo, Egypt.
Teasing the speech with the French television network Canal Plus, Obama commented" "Now, the flip side is I think that the United States and the West generally, we have to educate ourselves more effectively on Islam. And one of the points I want to make is, is that if you actually took the number of Muslims Americans, we'd be one of the largest Muslim countries in the world. And so there's got to be a better dialogue and a better understanding between the two peoples."
He continued that his Muslim outreach aims to establish "better dialogue" so the Muslim world understands more effectively "how the U.S. but also how the West thinks about many of these difficult issues like terrorism, like democracy, to discuss the framework for what's happened in Iraq and Afghanistan and our outreach to Iran, and also how we view the prospects for peace between the Israelis and the Palestinians." ...continued at site
In El Salvador, Clinton repeatedly stressed that she and Obama were committed to a "new approach to the region," one that emphasized engagement and cooperation and not ideological battles.
"We have to recognize that our country is not perfect either, that some of the difficulties that we had historically in forging strong and lasting relationships in our hemisphere are a result of us perhaps not listening, perhaps not paying enough attention," she told employees at the U.S. Embassy in San Salvador.
Frankly, I am sick and tired of Obama and now Clinton, apologizing for my country.
As Obama is headed this week for another bow to the King in Saudi Arabia, then on to Egypt; where he will deliver a major speech in Cairo to the muslims. In an effort to reach out his hand and open dialogue with muslim nations.....or something to that effect.
What is with the whole 'perhaps we have not been listening', 'we need to listen more'????
Geez, have you ever heard them speak up in defense of the U.S. and Americans?
Muslims desecrating our U.S. flag
Now, isn't that special? Our muslim president is instructing U.S. embassies to invite the Iranians (muslims) to attend and celebrate Independence Day with us. Are you kidding me??!!
After viewing the website, one is left with 'hope' and 'change' and 'promise' for GM.
What I don't understand is WHY IN THE HELL did GM not do what they are now promising they will do? Today they are promising thousands of jobs to change the cars they will build with the hope of changing America.
For the past 30 years, the powers that be at the old GM ran the company in to the ground. Along comes you, the taxpayer with around $33.4 billion for GM. They burned through that money......remember, 'too big to fail'? They failed, they're filing bankruptcy. Bye Bye GM.
Ah, but it's a new day! All is bright and cheery at the New GM today. We will chip in another $30 billion, and they will build cute little death traps for all of us. No more problems, no financial issues, no worry of loss of jobs.
What a crock of crap.
GM is about to file bankruptcy, laying off 20,000 workers.
Unemployment figures keep rising to the tune of 600,000 per MONTH.
Foreclosures rise to record numbers, affecting 1 in 8 homeowners.
North Korea continues to test missiles (even after our scolding....ha)
The war continues in Iraq.
The war continues in Afghanistan.
Not to say the Obamas shouldn't have a night together, obviously. Point is, our country is in the toilet economically, Obama himself says we 'need to tighten our belts', and what about carbon emissions? The hypocrisy speaks volumes. But then again, I am not surprised.
Maybe they should have done it on their own dime, and not ours.
Sharia Law = Islam Law.
For a little background on Somali and insight (warning: graphic) click on the link below.
As Islam grows in strength with millions around the world...YES, even in OUR country....Sharia Law always follows... changing the way muslims will treat non believers, under their laws (Sharia).
You need only to look to Britain to see how an independent country has become an Islam stronghold.
Mr. Obama invited health industry leaders to the White House on Monday to trumpet their cost-control commitments.
After meeting with six major health care organizations, Mr. Obama hailed their cost-cutting promise as historic.
“These groups are voluntarily coming together to make an unprecedented commitment,” Mr. Obama said. “Over the next 10 years, from 2010 to 2019, they are pledging to cut the rate of growth of national health care spending by 1.5 percentage points each year — an amount that’s equal to over $2 trillion.”
NOT SO FAST PINOCCHI-O-BAMA!!!
Health care leaders who attended the meeting have a different interpretation. They say they agreed to slow health spending in a more gradual way and did not pledge specific year-by-year cuts.
“There’s been a lot of misunderstanding that has caused a lot of consternation among our members,” said Richard J. Umbdenstock, the president of the American Hospital Association. “I’ve spent the better part of the last three days trying to deal with it.”
Yeah. "Pick your target, freeze it, personalize it, polarize it." - Saul Alinsky -O's playbook.
DuhObama has now done a 180...and will fight to NOT release the torture photos....He has now decided that in releasing the photos it could prove to be a national threat to our country's security.
Yeah, no kidding. I'm glad to see he is trying to do the right thing. However, he is 'fighting' to not release the photos? Why not just sign an Executive Order, and be done with it, if it is what he truly believes? I suspect this story is not over.
Obama, Obama, Obama. "I will not raise taxes on anything...." ---Remember that?
You didn't believe him now, did you? ---You were a fool then.
They have to raise the money to pay for all his spending somehow. What did the liberals think he was going to do? Oh, never mind. Now I remember. Yes. He was just going to tax the wealthy (those making $250K or more). First off, for all you blubbering idiots...if you thought for one second he would stop there, you are my friend, a total and complete ignorant fool. Secondly, Obamassiah's spending will not stop until our country is broke and bankrupt.
Better buckle up, it's going to be a long ride.......all the way down.
Here is an excerpt---
A second element, which would raise $10 billion over 10 years, would require businesses and others who make payments to corporations to report such payments to the Internal Revenue Service. Under current law, payments to individuals are required to be reported on a 1099 form, but no such requirements exist for similar payments to corporations. The goal is to make sure that the recipient corporations report all their taxable income.
If you pay premiums to your employer for health insurance benefits....under Obama's plan you would pay taxes on the premiums you pay. Not only would you be paying for your own health insurance benefits, you would also be paying for those without health insurance.
Sweet, right? Remember when your worthless president said that those of you with health insurance could keep your insurance under his plan? The good news is, you could keep your own benefits. The bad news is ....obvious. You get to pay taxes on it to help pay for everyone else without insurance. Hahhaha. You didn't honestly believe it truly would be free, did you?WARNING...WARNING..WARNING.. SOCIALIZED MEDICINE IS COMING.
I have copied and pasted a couple comments from others regarding this story. Please read them.
"Nationalized health care does not and will not work. I lived in the UK for 18 months, so I speak from experience. A friend of ours had to wait 5 years (no exaggeration) for a tonsillectomy. Recently, the National Health Service announced it will not provide potentially life-savings drugs to cancer patients because it is too costly. So to those of you who think the government owes you anything, forget it. Socialism is nothing but a mausoleum: Looks great on the outside, but it's full of death and decay. "
"Corporations don't pay taxes - they pass all that cost on to the people. So this is a tax on all of us. Don't be fooled. Socialism does not work. The people with money that are productive will stop working and stop spending and stop hiring. Economics 101. "
Yup! What they said.
Labor costs in those countries are far lower. While paying a U.S. autoworker with benefits costs about $54 an hour, a South Korean worker earns about $22 an hour, a Mexican worker earns less than $10 an hour and some Chinese workers can earn as little as $3 an hour, industry sources said.
But, hey, no worries. Obama promised to 'save and create' 5 million jobs. Just sit back, relax, and pour yourself some more Kool-Aid. I'm sure your savior will make good on his promise.
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner said on Friday that the Obama administration will provide "substantial support" to troubled financial firm GMAC in the form of more capital.
"We're going to provide substantial support to GMAC," Geithner said in an interview with Reuters Television.
"It's likely, again, that GMAC will need to take additional capital from the government and we'll be prepared to provide that."The Treasury and U.S. banking regulators said on Thursday that GMAC needs to raise $11.5 billion to fill a capital hole it could face if the economy were to take a turn for the worse.
Of course, GMAC will be providing financing for vehicles purchased under the new Obama controlled Congressional Motors, so of course..give 'em the $11.5 billion.
Sick. Just sick. Keep drinkin' the Kool-Aid.
Plans have been in the works for over four years now to build a memorial honoring the victims of Flight 93 from September 11, 2001. Flight 93 went down in a Pennsylvania field after heroic passengers took over the terrorists onboard, which resulted in the plane crashing, killing all aboard.
A couple things struck me as odd this morning when I read the article (click on title to see it). The Federal Government will be taking almost 500 acres of the 2000 acres needed for the memorial from the private landowners. Taking? I call it stealing, but anyway, from here, I was curious what this memorial was about, which led me to the National Park Service's website:
(you can read lots of lovely words used to describe what appears will be a lovely tribute) .
Hmmm. Whenever the Government is involved, things are generally not 'lovely'. So, I went looking for more, which led me to gatewaypundit's blog and a blog by the widow of a flight 93 passenger. Turns out, many are quite displeased with the design of the memorial. Reason?
The design of the memorial is strikingly similar to this:
Wikipedia says this:
The star and crescent historically was a Greek symbol, first used for the city of Byzantium in pre-Christian times and then wider in the Hellenistic world.  Later when they invaded the Eastern Roman Empire the Ottomans copied it and it later became associated with Islam in general, though it continued to be used by the Greeks until the final sack of Constantinople by the Turks. Now its popularity among Muslims makes it comparable to the Christian cross and the Star of David. A number of Muslim-majority nations, such as Algeria, Tunisia, Comoros, Mauritania, Malaysia, Pakistan, Maldives, Azerbaijan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan and non-sovereign nations such as East Turkestan use it on their national flag.
I found the following picture. See anything similiar with the proposed memorial and the crescent/star representing Islam?
As you read further, the group of trees proposed would
represent the star, and when standing in the center, you would be facing mecca.
"This Mecca-orientation makes the giant crescent a mihrab, the Mecca-direction indicator around which every mosque is built."
Not only is the Government stealing 500 acres of private land, but they are also building a memorial that resembles the crescent and star, a symbol of Islam. Circle of embrace? I think not! Crescent of Embrace? Yes. This deserves far more attention than it is getting.
President Bush, from 2001-2008 had always cleared his calendar for National Prayer Day.
Could be, there are no photos!
Could be, Sasha, Malia and the little dog Bo were going for a joyride with Air Force One. Were the girls actually in school that day?
Could be, the big dog BO thought it would be fabulous to fly Air Force One over Manhattan in honor of his first 100 days in office.
I truly hope this story doesn't die. We have a right to see the supposed photos..after all, it was our taxpayer money. We also have a right to know the truth.
Obama promised transparency. Yup, I can see right through him....and it's not a pretty sight.
These crazies are standing on a public street in New York City, stomping on OUR U.S. FLAG and spewing hateful crap.....and we don't want to offend? Shameful. I find it interesting that the news media does not show this crap.
Jeep Run on a sunny Sunday
There were about 7 jeeps on the run
Our 'not too pretty to get dirty' Jeep got pretty dirty
She came home covered in clumps of mud from top to bottom after plowing through water, mud and yes, even snow! All but one jeep on this run had to be winced at one point.
This weekend there is a scheduled run described as going through a creek, brush, mud....sounds like my kind of fun!
Before you read below, check out Michelle Obama's new tennis shoes...from high end French fashion label Lavin...cost, oh, a mere $540.00. Okay, NOW read the news below. Go.
Here is part of the article: (click on title for entire story)
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Millions of Americans enjoying their small windfall from President Barack Obama's "Making Work Pay" tax credit are in for an unpleasant surprise next spring.
The government is going to want some of that money back.
The tax credit is supposed to provide up to $400 to individuals and $800 to married couples as part of the massive economic recovery package enacted in February. Most workers started receiving the credit through small increases in their paychecks in the past month.
But new tax withholding tables issued by the IRS could cause millions of taxpayers to get hundreds of dollars more than they are entitled to under the credit, money that will have to be repaid at tax time.
How does the saying go now? Oh yeah, 'They giveth with one hand, and taketh away with the other?' Well, something like that. Y'all thought your dear leader Obama d'man was giving you a tidy little increase in your paycheck, didn't you? Silly you....you didn't really actually BELIEVE it would be that simple, now did you?
Time to wake up from your dream of obama rainbows and unicorns....cuz you're gonna have to give the money back next year. Enjoy the $13 bucks a weeks while ya got it. And, it's only going to take you about 42 weeks to have enough for a pair of shoes just like ms. angry american MO. They are kind of cool looking, don't you agree?
And, then there are the deficit and debt numbers...President Bush was able to bring the US deficit down 3 of his 8 years in office: but check out the Obama years to come.
Hey, the numbers don't lie. Looks real pretty, doesn't it? I know, I know, we gotta pay for the mess Bush got us in to somehow, right? Well, despite the recession he inherited, 9-11, stock market scandals, Hurricane Katrina and two wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the unemployment rate during the Bush years averaged out to 5.27%. Hmm..Obama's numbers not lookin' too good.
“This has not been in the media, but a 23 month old in Houston is fighting for his life, and a pregnant woman just south of San Antonio is fighting for her life,” he writes.
Gitterle’s mention of a “23 month old in Houston” obviously refers to the Mexican toddler who died on Monday night and was announced as the first U.S. fatality on Tuesday morning.
Gitterle warns, “ER’s south of here are becoming overwhelmed — and I mean that — already. It is coming in waves, but the waves are getting bigger.”
The doctor states that the severity of the situation has already crossed the threshold of the definition of a WHO phase 6 pandemic. “This has not happened in any of our lifetimes so far. We are in uncharted territory,” he writes.
Gitterle claims that President Obama is being advised to declare a national emergency and that this could happen within the next 48 hours.
“This may not happen, but if it doesn’t, I will be surprised. When this happens, all public gathering will be cancelled for 10 days minimum,” writes the doctor.
Gitterle advises people to avoid all public gatherings, especially those held indoors, to avoid going to their ER if they feel ill, and to take the nutritional supplements N-Acetyl-Cysteine and Oscillococinum. He recommends Relenza as a more powerful drug than Tamiflu but warns that supplies of both drugs are running out fast."
“Since it is such a novel (new) virus, there is no “herd immunity,” so the “attack rate” is very high. This is the percentage of people who come down with a virus if exposed.
It's in the way you dress. The way you boogie down. The way you sign your unemployment check. You're a man who likes to do things your own way. And on those special odd-numbered Saturdays when driving is permitted, you want it in your car. It's that special feeling of a zero-emissions wind at your back and a road ahead meandering with possibilities. The kind of feeling you get behind the wheel of the Pelosi GTxi SS/Rt Sport Edition from Congressional Motors.
All new for 2012, the Pelosi GTxi SS/Rt Sport Edition is the mandatory American car so advanced it took $100 billion and an entire Congress to design it. We started with same reliable 7-way hybrid ethanol-biodeisel-electric-clean coal-wind-solar-pedal power plant behind the base model Pelosi, but packed it with extra oomph and the sassy styling pizazz that tells the world that 1974 Detroit is back again -- with a vengeance.
We've subsidized the features you want and taxed away the rest. With its advanced Al Gore-designed V-3 under the hood pumping out 22.5 thumping, carbon-neutral ponies of Detroit muscle, you'll never be late for the Disco or the Day Labor Shelter. Engage the pedal drive or strap on the optional jumbo mizzenmast, and the GTxi SS/Rt Sport Edition easily exceeds 2016 CAFE mileage standards. At an estimated 268 MPG, that's a savings of nearly $1800 per week in fuel cost over the 2011 Pelosi.
Even with increased performance we didn't skimp on safety. With 11-point passenger racing harnesses, 15-way airbags, and mandatory hockey helmet, you'll have the security knowing that you could survive a 45 MPH collision even if the GTxi SS/Rt were capable of that kind of illegal speed.
But the changes don't stop there. Sporty mag-style hubcaps and an all-new aggressive wedge shape designed by CM's Chief Stylist Ted Kennedy slices through the wind like an omnibus spending bill. It even features an airtight undercarriage to keep you and a passenger afloat up to 15 minutes -- even in the choppy waters of a Cape Cod inlet. Available a rainbow of color choices to match any wardrobe, from Harvest Avocado to French Mustard.
Inside, a luxurious all-velour interior designed by Barney Frank features thoughtful appointments like in-dash condom dispenser and detachable vibrating shift knob. A special high capacity hatchback holds up to 300 aluminum cans, meaning fewer trips to the redemption center. And the standard 3 speaker Fairness ActoPhonic FM low-band sound system means you'll never miss a segment of NPR again.
Best of all, the Pelosi GTxi SS/Rt is made right here in the U.S.A. by fully card-checked unionized workers and Detroit's famous visionary jet-set managers. Even if you don't own one, you can enjoy the patriotic satisfaction that you're supporting the high wages, good benefits, and generous political donations that are once again making the American car industry the envy of the world.
But why not buy one anyway? With an MSRP starting at only $629,999.99, it's affordable too. Don't forget to ask about dealer incentives, rebates, tax credits, and wealth redistribution plans for customers from dozens of qualifying special interest groups. Plus easy-pay financing programs from Fannie Mae.
So take the bus to your local CM dealer today and find out why the Pelosi GTxi SS/Rt Sport Edition is the only car endorsed by President Barack Obama. One test drive will convince you that you'd choose it over the import brands. Even if they were still legal.
