        Yeah, I don’t think we’ll be seeing Ben with his own tv OR radio show any time soon.

        • Gene

          You should have read the brief bio before you put your foot in your mouth. He has already been there done that (award winning) then moved on to bigger and better involvements in media.

        • libertytrain

          Karolyn —Looks like he’s been there, done that. Your comment reminds of the idea that “Them that have it do it, them that don’t criticize” -

        • Jay

          Karolyn, it puzzles me as to what you and eddie are doing here! You two have no one that agrees with you, yet you keep hanging around. Is there no one else that will have you?

      Why when you have a Japanese screen name and we are talking about Japan do you have Korean writing in your post?

    I don’t have any respect for Obama, or Hillary Clinton. Let’s replace them in 2012 with some one who has common sense, and who loves this country. Watch this video where Obama admits he is a Muslim. Poor old George Stephanopoulos had to remind him he was a Christian, not a Muslim. How many of you would make a mistake like this. After watching this video I do not have any doubt that Obama is a lying Muslim, and he has concealed this to the people who voted for him as our president. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iQqIpdBOg6I Furthermore, I saw this video as it was happening on television back in Sept 2008 while the interview was being conducted by George Stephanopoulos who is an anchor with ABC News. We don’t need a liar in the hite house.

    • wandamurline

      OMG…did you just now figure that one out? Obama told everyone what he was and what he intended to do to America, but most people just did not listen…now they are amazed at what he has done to us. This should not be a surprise, when he stated during his campaign…”we live in the greatest country in the world, help me to transform it”. Did you think he had any other idea than to redistribute the wealth and make this country a third world country. I still would like to see the birth certificate….I can bet you $100 he doesn’t have one, and that is why he has spent a million dollars to keep it from being released…you cannot release something that does not exist. The truth will surface sooner or later, personally, I would like it sooner. Even his friend the new governor of Hawaii was trying to help with the truther concept, said he had looked and could not find a birth certificate…immediately, the news medias snuffed that information from the public. Obama should be impeached and put on trial for treason, not only because he is not a natural born citizen of the US, but also for his inaction to stop the invasion of America by Mexico, which is one of the few responsibilities of the federal government…not only is he refusing to stop the invastion, he is aiding and abetting the invaders and committed crimes against America when he filed suit against Arizona. Sooner or later, the truth will set us free and put in behind bars.

      • herman richardson

        It is quite amazing to think that the world believes that one man could do this! Amazing?? or sad. Open your eyes, all this group wants is division, using intimidation and fear. The whole group from the top to the local mayor who passed a bond election without a vote, stop the insanity. As long as they keep us divided they know we are weak, we are playing into their hands.

      • WayneT

        wandamurline, I have known that Obama was a Muslim prior to his election. I was not sure how many of you have known it. You would be surprised at how many people does not know this, or they deny it, I don’t know which. I want to make sure this gets around all over the United States. I feel I have to start some where, s this is why I made this post. Help pass this one around to your e-mail contacts.

      • usmadgirl

        Wandamurline,

        As always, you hit the nail on the head! I don’t respond to your comments very often because you pretty much cover everything I want to say. You’re “stealing my thunder”! LOL

        I don’t know what people were hearing when he was campaigning, but it certainly wasn’t what I heard. When someone tells you that something is the greatest thing in the world, then say “let’s completely transform it”, it causes me to sit up & pay attention. If it ain’t broke, don’t mess with it! Now, he’s smashed it all to H#!!.

        I can’t “share my wealth” because I work 16-20 hours a day just to barely survive. AND I can’t pay more for my electric bill just because “under his plan, energy bills will necessarily skyrocket”!

        Also, people can call me a “birther” of whatever they like, but there is no legitimate birth certificate…except maybe the one from Kenya:

        http://wasobamaborninkenya.com/

        Like you said, the Governor of Hawaii says “he’s seen it, he just can’t find it in the archives”! Yeah, right! We don’t KNOW if he’s even been to any college. We don’t know ANYTHING about him.

        I could go on & on like I usually do, but I just wanted to let you know that I agree with probably 99% of everything you say. It’s nice to know there’s someone who sees things in the same light!

        • Suntropic

          You claim you work 16-20 hours a day, and just barely making it at that, what do you make an hour about a dollar?

          • Jay

            Suntropic, have you anything of value to contribute besides your childish remarks?

          • http://naver samurai

            Sorry Jay, but its hard for him to do it with the child’s mentality that he possesses. 하나님 하고 나라를 위해서! FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

        • usmadgirl

          Suntropic,

          First of all it’s none of your business. Second, is THAT all the information you got from my comment?

          Some people here know what I do. If you own your own business, you know that your expenses are usually as much as your income, especially in what I do & have done for 30 years & independently for 17 of those 30 years. My business is dictated by the economy, mainly the real estate market & is very competitive.

          When I became an independent contractor 17 years ago, I made 3 times as much as I do now because I only had to compete with about 20 people within a 100 mile radius. Things got busy, those 20 hired people to help them keep up (I was smart enough to hire my son who hated it & quit, when it got slow, to go to college), business slowed down, then those 20 went independent; so now I have to compete with about 100 nitwits, some who have no clue what they’re doing & cut my fees to get customers. Now I do a lot more work for a lot less money. Everything is going up except my income, but if I increase my fees, my customers will just give their business to my competition.

          I hope that satisfies your curiosity.

          • Jay

            usmadgirl, isn’t it obvious what suntropic and his commie brigade are doing here? All they seem to do is rebuttal our justified criticism of obama and his lunatic administration. If all of us were to agree that obama was on the right track and his policies are good for country, suntropic and his witless commie brigade would disappear.

        Yea the way Bush stopped the illegal aliens from pouring into this country that really started to become a problem under his watch. Hey, I got an idea, maybe Obama can just give them all amnesty, you know the way Reagan did with over 2.5 million of them in the 80′s

        • http://naver samurai

            Sorry for you not seeing Sook Young too much, but she’s been placed on the night shift and posts when she can. Thanks for asking though. Am I getting as mean as the rest of us? Maybe I am. I just get tired of these traitors and cowards (libs) trying to run over our Constitution with their version of secular humanism. Keep up the good fight, fellow patriot! 하나님 하고 나라를 위해서!

        I just heard today that the reason he won’t release his birth certificate id because, in the column marked “Race”, it says Caucasion.

    • barbm

      i’m not arguing whether he’s a muslim, but i watched it and don’t see him saying he’s muslim. he makes enough mistakes and tells enough lies on his own. we don’t need to push this kind of thing. i think it makes us look a bit loony when we do. when he said his muslim faith, i think it’s obvious that he meant the allegations that he’s a muslim.

      • WayneT

        Barbm, If you did not hear him make that statement, then you did not watch the whole video. Near the end of the video Obama said, ” Even though, I am a Mulim, and maybe a couple of other words before George Stephanopoulos stopped him and said, you mean Christian, don’t you? Obama then said, yes I meant Christian. Now, a person does not forget what religion they are. If so, he should never be a president. If a person tells the truth you will always be consistant with what your saying. If you tell a lie, you will not always be consistant in what your saying. Obama is a liar I have heard him say inconsistant things to different people. Please listen to that video again and pay attention as it gets near the end.

        • barbm

          what he said was that mccain hadn’t questioned his muslim faith. i think any reasonable person hearing the whole thing would think as i do. he meant that mccain had not questioned his faith at all. as i said, i’m not saying whether i think he’s a muslim. i’m just saying he didn’t say that on the interview you asked us to watch. he could’ve put any religion in that spot, and his point would still be that mccain didn’t question his faith.

          • WayneT

            Barbm, I did not use the exact words verbatim that Obama used, Sorry about that. I guess it is the way that people want to interpet what he said. When he said McCain did not question his Muslim faith, to me that means he is a Muslim. I am of the Christian Faith. If I used the same words as Obama, I would expect some one to interpet it as I was a Christian. If I said some one did not question my Christian Faith, I am saying I am a Christian. If you are right in you assumptian, then why did George speak up and say, you mean Christian; then why did Obama change and say yes, he meant Christian. Evidently George interpeted this the same way as I did and that is why he said what he did. I feel I have interperted Obama correctly and to make a valid assumption that he is a Muslim. Maybe some one else will jump in and we can get their opinion. I am surprised some one hadn’t already jumped in to say which one of us is right. I guess you and I are at a stand still here.

        • barbm

          NOWHERE in that interview did he EVER say, “” Even though, I am a Mulim (sic)….”

          • WayneT

            Barbm, I agreed with you that this was not his words verbatim. However, I still believe that he meant he was a Muslim by the way he said it. Oh well, I guess we will just hav to let it lie, and move on.

          • usmadgirl

            Wayne T,

            I interpreted it the way you did; obviously so did a lot of other people because it was a big question on the news when he let it slip. Kinda like when Michelle said they were going to visit Kenya, “Barack’s birthplace”. Also, O’Dumbo letting the cat out of the bag to Joe the Plumber about “sharing the wealth”.

            That’s why I think he HAS to use the tele-prompter. Every time he opens his mouth without reading it, he tells us the truth!

        • barbm

          if you haven’t been in front of a camera, you don’t understand how difficult it is to watch every word. they can’t stop rolling while you gather your thoughts. i really don’t think that’s what he meant. i do, however, think he’s a muslim if that makes you feel any better. :).

          • WayneT

            Barbm, please do not agree with me to make me feel better. I am a big boy, and I assure you, I can handle it. It is good to agree to disagree. We will move on.

          • barbm

            oh darlin’, you don’t know me. i don’t agree with anything for anybody just to make them feel better. that would be patronizing which would be an insult.

      • WayneT

        barbm, who did Obama have at the Whitehoiuse on Ramadam. He celebrated this day with his Muslim Friends. How many times has he celebrated with the Christians? I can’t think of any. One particular incident does not say he is a Muslim, but when you add the totality of many things together, there should not be any doubt in anyone’s mind that he is a Mslim. I certainly do not have any doubt. I heard him in another incident, on television, where he also stated he was a Muslim. So far, I have been unable to find that particular video.

        • barbm

          it doesn’t matter whether he’s a muslim, nor do i give a hoot that he smokes. so do i. it’s all that other stuff that should be worrying us. if he were white, christian, and non-smoking, would you want him for our potus? i wouldn’t. he’s a socialist and his programs suck.

          • Lewis Munn

            Barb,

            How he looks is not relevant, but how he thinks.

            If you see what he does, and whom he favors, and how honest he is, then you are looking in the right directions.

            I personally observe that he falls far short from my expectations for a President in all areas.

            I was especially upset when he refused to look at overseas cemetaries of our fallen soldiers, who were fighting against totalitarian governments.

            And as an older person, I do not think he is right to let in and support lots of kids, many illegal from the gitgo, and take it out of our SS for the older folks, or encourage older folks to just go die.

            He should be working for the betterment of all US citizens, rather than shorting the old and helping illegal non-citizens take over.

            He lost my respect when he took no action when the illegals marched in Washington, DC, past the government buildings. They were allegedly all in the us illegally, and they should have all been arrested and deported. Our Constitution is ONLY for legal citizens!!

          • usmadgirl

            Barbm,

            I have to disagree with you on this. No, I wouldn’t want him as our president no matter what. I don’t care what color he is or if he smokes, but I do care if he is a Muslim.

            With all the chaos going on in the Middle East & with his bowing to all their leaders, his ties with an ideology (I don’t think it’s a religion) of a huge group of people whose sole objective is to murder us, yes, I am truly concerned. Their “religion” gives them permission to lie to infiltrate us “infidels”. There is an enormous amount of Muslims in this country who are training to become “radicalized” to kill us. If they were here because they “love” this country & to be a part of making this country great, they would want to blend into our society, accept our culture & our constitution, but instead, they want to continue to live as they did in their country. They want to continue using Sharia Law & want to force it on us.

            My state just created a bill that would make it against the law to practice Sharia Law in TN. I know that Oklahoma had to vote to see if they were going to allow Sharia Law. Why on earth do we even NEED to do that? This is the United States of America. If they don’t like the way we do things or respect our laws, then why don’t they go home? They don’t because, they are trying to take over our country & countries all over the world & have done a pretty successful job in some. What better way to infiltrate “the big Satan” than to vote a Muslim into office as the leader of the “free world”! When did we become this stupid?!!! Oh yes! I remember…when we let progressives inflict “political correctness” on our country to the point that we were “afraid” to investigate a presidential candidate because he was half black!

            If you listen to all the people with whom the “president” surrounded himself when he was growing up, they were all radicals & Muslims. I know people can “change”, but he’s shown no evidence of changing. He still surrounds himself with radicals & Muslims.

    • usmadgirl

      Wayne T,

      It’s not my place to judge, but I’ll just say that I think it would be impossible for a Christian to sit in Jeremiah Wright’s church for 20 years & listen to him spew his hatred. A Christian can’t have hatred in their hearts for anyone (boy! has THAT gotten difficult in the last 2 years). “Reverend” Wright is about as much a “reverend” as Al Sharpton & Jesse Jackson.

      • barbm

        amen!

      • Suntropic

        Yes usmadgirl and I can see that you as being a Christian are definitly following the teachings of Jesus, by all the love and tolerance and peace that you express in your blogs.

        • usmadgirl

          Suntropic,

          Thank you! That’s so kind of you to say, but by your previous comments to others & to me, I’m pretty sure you’re being facetious!

          I try not to attack people personally unless I’m attacked first, which is still wrong. I can’t see where I’ve attacked anyone here. I love my country & our Constitution & I’m angry for the intentional, unnecessary destruction of our Republic & the unconstitutional actions of this administration.

          I certainly don’t claim to be anything but a sinner saved by the grace of God. If you or I were perfect, God wouldn’t have had to send Jesus to die for our sins.

      • WayneT

        usmadgirl, I totally agree with what you said about Obama. I am relieved that you interpeted with what he said, the same as I did. I was thinking that I was the only one who felt this way. Thanks. There is not any doubt in my mind that he is a Muslim. Look at how he treats the Christian folks, and watch how he treats the Muslim folks. I have followed him on many other things he has said, and done. I believe that any one who has followd him as much as I have could not have any doubt that he is Muslim.

      • WayneT

        You have a great way of explaining yourself, usmadgirl. We both feel the same way about Obama, and I agree with you how yo express it.

        • usmadgirl

          Wayne T,

          Thank you! I’m glad you like the way I express myself. I just write like I “tawk” (that’s Southern for “talk”) & express what’s in my heart.

          Evidently “Suntropic” thinks I’m evil & un-Christianlike in my comments. I certainly don’t mean to be, but there are a lot of mean instigators here that thrive on stirring up trouble! I don’t usually attack unless attacked first. I’m still human!

      WayneT, what is lacking with respect to the issue of Obama being a muslim, which he obviously is, is the broader perspective. The issue goes far deeper. Its not about religion per say, or wether the President is a muslim. Beneath the surface and at the heart, lies the true and sinister plan that is carefully concealed. “The final solution”, proposed by the Nazi regime with respect the jews prior to world war two, has by no means been extinguished, but has transferred into different hands. The turmoil, that is playing itself out in our country and in the middle east, has to do more, i believe, with the ancient age old feud between two half brothers, the Jews and the Arabs, then what we see on the surface! The progenitor of both of these nations is not other then Abraham, the father of both.

      The Arabs, or Ishmael, are the off springs of Abraham and Hagar, Hagar was the Egyptian maidservant. The Jews, or Isaac, are the off springs of Abraham and Sarah, Sarah was the legitimate wife of Abraham, Hagar was not. The promise that God made to Abraham, that through Abraham’s seed a nation will come and be blessed was dependent, and would be as the result of the legitimate union between Abraham and Sarah. Although Ishmael was the first born, and was the result of Abraham’s and Hagar’s union, he was, unfortunately, by law, and as a result of circumventing the plan of God, not the legitimate heir, not only with respect to Abrahams possessions, but also with respect to God’s promise of the Nation that would be regarded as God’s promise, therefore, Ishmael was disqualified and sent away.

      To compensate and aright what was the result of Abraham’s disobedience and momentary lack of faith, resulting in Ishmael denial of the birthright, God promised to bless Ishmael nonetheless. In fact, when Hagar was still with child, God made her this promise: Behold, you are with child, And you shall bear a son. You shall call his name Ishmael, because the Lord has heard your affliction. He shall be a wild man; His hand shall be against every man, and every man’s hand against him. And he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren.
      (The untameable desert onager (wild donkey)best described the fiercely aggressive and independent nature Ishmael would exhibit, along with his arabic descendants).

      Still, on another occasion, while Hagar was with child, God repeats his promise of blessing to Abraham concerning Ishmael: And as for Ishmael, I have heard you. Behold, I have blessed him, and will make him fruitful and multiply him exceedingly, he shall begat twelve princes, and I will make him a great nation. But my covenant I will establish with Isaac, whom Sarah shall bear to you at this set time next year.

      And yet, despite the adequate compensation and blessing God bestowed on Ishmael, the fact that Ishmael and Hagar left with deep animosity and jealous hatred for Isaac, must not be overlooked! Since that point in time and as result of the affront that Hagar and Ishmael suffered, the murderous hatred expressed by the arab nations towards Israel, or the Jews, has not abated, not even by one iota. Its no secret, and no one can deny the hatred that is expressed, even today, by the arab nations towards Israel. In fact, one can trace the genesis and history of the wars between the two nations through the old testament, and what ignited the hatred of the arabs was the issue of birth right.

      So what does that all have to do with Obama’s obvious leanings towards Islam, with the intrusion of Islamic influence into our country, into all countries for that fact, with Islam’s sharia law that is being considered and possibly incorporated into our laws, mosque at ground zero, our dependence on arab oil, our right as a nation to drill for our own oil and resources, denied, our industries being systematically shut down?

      At present, the United States is the only ally that Israel has, and, Israel is not only heavily dependant on America’s military protection, as well as Her monetary aid, but She provides the United States with crucial intel regarding Arab nation’s political manoeuvrings in the middle east. As a result, the cozy and symbiotic relationship between the two nations, interferes and poses a serious problem to the arab’s plan to wipe the nation of Israel off the face of the earth. We all know, and have heard, the maniacal rantings of old, that express the desire to wipe the nation of Israel off the face the earth, by the present despotic leaders of the arab nation’s.

      And so, in order for the arab nation’s to fulfil their life long plan to exterminate the jewish race, the American shield must be first removed, so as to isolate Israel, rendering her defenceless, and at the mercy of her enemies.

      We have all called the enemies of the United States by such terms as, the wall street elite, giant corporations, fed reserve, imf, special interest groups, the environmentalists and so on, but I would be willing to propose, that behind all these, is not only arab oil revenues at play, but arab hatred for the Jews, as well.

      If the United States can brought to economic ruin, and to a level of such ruin, where it will then be determined that all foreign aid, and especially aid to Israel, be suspended, then the destruction of our nation’s economy will remove the restraints for such a hideous plan. Sentiments to deny Israel economic aid and military protection have already begun to surface. Some have already expressed such sentiments here, and on this blog. When that day comes, and I have no doubt it will, that day will precipitate world war 3. With no other options at Her disposal, Israel will have no choice but to initiate the “Sampson option”. The United States cannot afford to do this, at any cost. For the promise that God made to Abraham concerning his seed, “I will bless those who bless you, and curse those who curse you”, still stands. We must, at all cost, disregard Obama’s lunatic restrictions and policies concerning our industry. We must reestablish economic policies that are to Americas best interest, thus making Her self-sufficient, and, we must, at all cost, chase that stinking Rat and his cohorts out of our administration and country.

      As long as the United States remains dependant on foreign oil, arab oil in particular, and Her debt foreignly owned, She will never achieve economic independence, and will always be a slave to such, rendering Her powerless and impotent.

      The goals of Islam are no secret, subjugate the world to Islam, and wipe the nation of Israel off the face of the earth.

        I have examined and agree with most of what you say, but you are incorrect on one point: The Iranian president did not say what you stated in your missive! He stated that the ZIONIST REGIME should be made to vanish from the pages of time….Please Google the quote ,both in English AND in Farsi (Iranian)and you will learn that you are misquoting what the mainstream media (predominantly owned by zionists) has published. Let’s keep it honest, shall we?

        If this puzzles you, do a little research pn Zionism, as founded by Theodor Herzl long ago in the early part of this century. also look up Jacobinism. I rest my case….

        • Jay

          Earl, seems the Iranian president has learned the convoluted language of political correctness. I guess even despots have to change with the times.

      He’s not on vacation; he’s on a diplomatic mission, which is what Presidents do!! This is the first time he’s been to South America. I would challenge you to find a President who hasn’t traveled around the world. Duh, it’s part of the job!

      • Rayma Dorsa

        Open your eyes Karlyn,Obama doesn’t know HOW to be president and the only thing that will re-elect -him is the “Labor Unions” and thier GREED, If people cared about thier country, as they should, they would stand behind Gov Walker of Wi in what he is trying to do and all other Republican Gov’s There should be NO Unions in Gov, as the Unions now yield all the POWER and the private employees do ALL the PAYING, I am 78 years old and have seen what the Unions have done to this country,everytime they went for a increase, our costs went up over the years, I have watched it,I fought it and I have been in the Gov Union or I couldn’t work. I believe they and thier GREED have destroyed the United States. Being a state worker I have seen the overpayment of some state workers, who are NO BETTER or worked any harder than private employees. Government is suppose to be for EVERYONE in the state not just for public workers, but that isn;t so when theres Unions involved.

        No Karolyn, he isn’t on any diplomatic mission. He is visiting a diamond industry and a software company. ( They claim.)
        Interestingly enough, Soros is also in Brazil. So are his oil wells.
        They say that this current president will also be taking his family to “the beach”. ( That’s so nice isn’t it.) I for one would love to go to the beach and have a vacation , if only a very short one. It has been years since I’ve had that luxury. As is the case with the majority of American’s now.

        Actually, we members of the TEA PARTY aren’t biggots. Can you prove we are or are you being just another ignorant liberal that just happened to show up on this site? Remember, the TEA PARTY helped to clean house of many of the ones that were in the government before, but thankfully God listens to prayer and got rid of most of them. Obama knows he’s in trouble and that’s why the government may be shutting down, because of his stupidity and arrogance. I agree with some people that the fight to save this country is far from over. My husband and I will keep doing what we can do to save this great country from Obama and people like you. Thank you.

    How about everybody grow up.
    IN GEBERAL
    Coloreds as groups, as well as Mr. and Mrs. Obama, are the biggest racists in the world.
    Coloreds are more racist than KKK officers and stereotype southern rednecks.
    If you don’t see that, then you are hopelessly blind.

    Who plays the race cards whenever they get a chance?
    Who pushes you out of the way in stores?
    Who makes inappropriate remarks to you and your family in malls, stores, etc?

    Who has the worst manners in public places? OK, young people in general,too.
    Who just generally believes that whites owe them something because 150 years ago a few thousand unfortunate blacks were sold into slavery by their fellow black countrymen?

    Did you notice all the looting and riots in Japan?
    Kind of reminds you of New Orleans or Watts, doesn’t it?

    • barbm

      so, then, you think we should crawl in the gutter with all the racists of the world? what a crock of crap. there’s a lot of white trash out there too, bucko. want to join them too?

      all races play the race card too much. nobody of any color makes comments to me or pushes me out of their way in stores. maybe they can tell by my smile and the way i coo over the babies that i’m not a racist – just a frustrated grandmother want-to-be. and men generally have the worst manners. they don’t hold the door/elevator/chair, they buy terrible gifts like toasters and gift cards, they finish too quickly, they leave the lid up and cap off, should i go on? :)

      blacks aren’t the only people who think they’re owed. there are people of all races on welfare “earning” their livings on their backs making babies. did you not notice that there were white welfare recipients rioting and looting in new orleans too? what an idiot you are. go lie with like-minded swine.

  • http://personallibertydigest Buck crosby

    I have rethought my position on how to make the country great again and save it from the progressives and the coming economic collapse.The key is 1960 . Go to all the presidential , senatorial and congressional libraries and eliminate everything that has been recorded from these bodies since 1960 and go from there. I am sure everyone realizes this is tongue in cheek , think about it . We could eliminate the Viet-Nam folly , pass the civil righrs bill in a way to keep the nutcases of the wagon , ( It was only to give Blacks egual rights and not all the phoney garbage that jumped on the bandwagon ),then we could forego the dumbing of the educational process and just hold the black kids to the same standard as all other kids , Then everyone would be smart enought to avoid electing progressive slugs to lead us and represent us in government , and , while at it we could teach that it is impossible to spend more than you have without dire consequences .

    • WayneT

      I kind of agree with you on this one, Buck. It does seem like all this crap did begin in the 1960′s. We certainly have a bunch of dummies up in Congress. Charles Rangel should have lost his job for what he did, and go to prison. Any member of the public would have ended up in prison for the doing same thing as Rangel did. We have had both parties that were bad, but for the last 4 years it seems like kt have been the Democrats that has cased most of the problems.

  • Lewis Munn

    Buck,

    Tearing it outta the libraries doe not destroy the actual history, just makes it impossible to see how we got where we are.

    You should advocate educating people about how the bad judgement in voting and of those voted in has hurt us, and what can be done NOW top set things right.

    It can be done if people will, for example, vote not by strict party line, but for those who show they mean to reverse all the errors and have the honesty and intestinal fortitude to stick to their votes and proposed laws, regardless of the pressure from those who are only interested in special privileges for some people, at the expense of the rest.

    A good start might be to push a law through to make our congressmen have to obey ALL the laws, and take them off special privileges in insurance and pay and what organizations they can take money from.

    Repealing the laws that give special privilege would be a good way to start to clean up the government. And get back to our Constitution.

    I know one Senator I think would leave and go home if he didn’t have oodles of special privileges! Make him, and all the rest, live under ALL the laws they have passed for the citizens, right now. And no special privileges.

    As I recall history, originally the leaders had to ride their own horses to Congress to help pass the laws!! Make the present guys have to drive their own cars and be responsible for all their tickets, too!

    • WayneT

      I agree with you, Lewis. Those idiots up in Washington DC cranks out all those stupid laws for everyone to follow, except for themselves. I have lost my respect for the biggest percentage of Congress. Most of them certainly has an ego, and are looking lut for themselves, not for the general public. They are the reason this country is currently 14.3 trillion dollars in debt. Let clean house the next election.

    Hello Ben,

  • WayneT

    barbm, I was thinking about Obama last night, and the way he said that he was a Muslim. If you remember, earlier I said I had heard him on two different occassions say that he was a Muslim. Well, when I said that obama said, “even though I am a Muslim”, Obama said this in the 2nd interview I had heard on television, not in the video clip I provided earlier. I have been unable to locate the one where he said it in this fashion. I’m sorry, but I just got the two interviews mixed up. When its all over, and done, I think there will be a lot mort dirt that will come out against Obama by the time his erm is up, or shortly after. With him currently being the president I think everyone is scared to come out with the truth against him.

  • http://charden@neo.rr.com Charles

    Hi People,
    At this point in time, I don`t care if Obama is a Muslim or where he was born. This man is trying to destroy America and he must be stoped.
    The biggest proof of who he is and what he stands for is, by the exact
    people he hangs his hat with. Just look at his friends,adviseors,and his Czars. Valerie Jarett, Bill Ayers, Van Jones, Andy Stern,
    Jeff Jones, Cass Sestein,Richard Trumpa,Anita Dunn, Rev. Jermey Wright and George Soros.Find out what Soros and the Rothschilds ( o
    England) have to do with Kosova
    and what they tryed to do in Serbia as far as the Christians are concerned and also in the country of Georgia. Now, I see, Obama
    draging us into another war in Libya. We fired over 130 missiles,
    at a cost of over one million dollars each. Thats a cost of 130 million dollars, which we can not afford. Then,we have the cost of helping
    Japan, which we should do. Obama is going to make sure we don`t have a budget to bring spending in line to cut the deficit. This man and
    his Marxist goons, should be arrested and tried for treason, for what
    they have done to this country.The Progressives have gotten scared
    since the elections of 2010 and are stepping up their spending to destroy us, because they feel they may lose the election in 2012.
    This next year may be their last chance.

    Charles, great post. You are exactly right. Hussein Obama is without a shadow of a doubt a muslim. How many Christians are named Hussein? Why didnt George Stephanopolis of ABC news ask him that? Before all you childish libs point out i missed-spelled George S. name wrong, thats great because i dont give a sh$% how his names spelled or what your stupid, radical drug-infested minds think. Charles and Wayne T. and all you other practcal thinkers on PLD dont be surprised when Hussein Obama declares martial law after he sees his tanking poll numbers and he realizes the american people have seen the light and now know he is a phony, who like his pastor of 20 years, hates america with all his heart. You will seed protest like you do in the middle-east and Wisconsin and he will organize his union THUGS and ACORN criminals to cause chaos, with the help of ultra-bumb, piece of crap Soros. Get ready for it, its gonna happen. Martial law in America. Hussein Obama is not leaving the White House, except to go overseas and bash America. “Hope and Change”.
