Obama said what????

I don’t know who was paying attention this past week but I heard a few things which came out of Zero’s mouth that just don’t add up (well, really, there is plenty about this man that don’t add up) and so I thought I’d run them past you. I mean, maybe you can make sense of this.

1) Obama decides to follow France and Britain into war against Libya. Why? Humanitarian purposes????  Oh, Zero is such a humanitarian. I see. Well then what about the people who died in Iran while looking to us for help? Syria? The Sudan? S. America? Africa? No. we are only worried about Libya.  Hmmm. Could it be that Europe is concerned about the oil??  Could it be?  No. We’d never get into a fight over oil. Well, would we?

Oh, but it gets better.

2) Bambi goes to Brazil. Hey, we could have made a musical like in the sixties. We could have Bambi sitting with George Soros and Bill Ayers playing bongo drums while Annette dances around. ….  Anyway, Bambi goes to Brazil and pumps $20 billion into an oil company controlled by his best buddy George Soros and says to Brazil: Drill. Here’s the money. Drill. And, the U.S. will be your best customer.

Okay.  Got that???  But, then Bambi comes back here (remember we can’t drill per Bambi because we might spill some oil..but his buddy and Brazil won’t…right?) and then tells the American people we must cut back on our oil purchases from foreign countries….what????….isn’t Brazil a foreign country?

Shhhhh,  doesn’t this cause you to wonder if the man has lost a screw someplace along the line? Is he smoking something strange?

Oh, then we find out that Zero has signed secret orders to the CIA to carry on a hidden war in Libya. Now, don’t that beat all???

Obama shows disrespect for our allies.

How could one “man” tick of 18 Nations or Organizations !!!
The American people can now more readily ‘understand’ why the Obama’s were omitted  from the guest list to the Royal wedding in April!  This is a very sobering article.  Our handling of relationships with the Britons over the oil spill don’t help either.

From The London Daily Telegraph Editor On Foreign Relations
Quote:  “Let me be clear: I’m not normally in favor of
boycotts, and I love the American people. I holiday in their country regularly, and hate the tedious snobby sneers against the United States. But the American people chose to elect an idiot who seems hell bent on insulting their allies, and something must be done to stop Obama’s reckless foreign policy, before he does the dirty on his allies on every issue.” One of the most poorly kept secrets in Washington is President Obama’s animosity toward   Great Britain , presumably because of what he regards as its sins while ruling Kenya (1895-1963).
One of Barack Hussein Obama’s  first acts as president was to return to Britain a bust of Winston Churchill that had graced the Oval Office since 9/11. He followed this up by denying Prime Minister Gordon Brown, on his first state visit, the usual joint press conference with flags. The president was “too tired” to grant the leader of America’s closest ally a proper welcome, his aides told British journalists.  Mr.Obama followed this up with cheesy gifts for Mr. Brown and the Queen.
Columnist Ian Martin described his behavior as “rudeness personified.” There was more rudeness in store for Mr. Brown at the opening session of the United Nations   in September.  “The prime minister was forced to dash through the kitchens of the UN in New York to secure five minutes of face time with President Obama after five requests for a sit down meeting were
rejected by the White House,” said London Telegraph columnist David Hughes. Mr. Obama’s “churlishness is  unforgivable,” Mr. Hughes said.
The administration went beyond snubs and slights last week
when Secretary of State Hillary Clinton endorsed the demand of Argentine  President Cristina Kirchner, a Hugo Chavez ally, for mediation of   Argentina ‘s specious claim to the   Falkland Islands , a British  dependency since 1833. The people who live in the Falklands, who speak  English, want nothing to do with Argentina. When, in 1982, an earlier Argentine dictatorship tried to seize the Falklands by force, the British —  with strong support from President Ronald  Reagan — expelled them.  “It is truly shocking that Barack Obama has decided to disregard our shared history,” wrote Telegraph columnist Toby Young. “Does
Britain’s friendship really mean so little to him?”  One could ask, does the friendship of anyone in the entire world mean anything to him?

“I recently asked several senior administration officials,
separately, to name a foreign leader with whom Barack Obama has forged a strong personal relationship during his first year in office,” wrote Jackson Diehl, deputy editorial page editor of the Washington Post, on Monday. “A lot of hemming and hawing ensued.”  One official named   French President Nicolas Sarkozy, but his contempt for Mr. Obama is an open secret.
Another named   German   Chancellor Angela Merkel. But, said
Mr. Diehl, “Merkel too has been conspicuously cool toward Obama.”

Mr. Obama certainly doesn’t care about the   Poles and Czechs ,
whom he has betrayed on missile defense.   Honduras  and Israel
also can attest that he’s been an unreliable ally and an unfaithful
friend.  Ironically, our relations with both Israel and the
Palestinian   Authority have never been worse.    Russia
has offered nothing in exchange for Mr. Obama’s abandonment of missile defense.  Russia and   China   won’t support serious sanctions   on  Iran .  Syria   ‘s support for terrorism has not diminished   despite efforts to normalize diplomatic relations. The reclusive military dictatorship that runs   Burma   has responded to our efforts at   “disengagement” by deepening its ties to   North Korea   . And the   Chinese   make little effort to disguise their
contempt for him.

For the first time in a long time, the  President of the United States is actually distrusted by its allies and not in the least feared by its adversaries.  Nor is Mr. Obama now respected by  the majority of Americans. Understandably focused on the dismal economy and Mr. Obama’s relentless  world community. They soon will.

What could possibly go wrong? Per Maxine.

This was sent to me. A comment by Maxine. Very funny. Very sad because it’s true.


Let me get this straight . . . .   We’re going to be “gifted” with a health care
plan we are forced to purchase and fined if we don’t,   Which purportedly covers at least ten million more people, without adding a single new doctor,
but provides for 16,000 new IRS agents,   written by a committee whose chairman   says he doesn’t understand it,   passed by a Congress that didn’t read it but exempted themselves from it,   and signed by a President who smokes,   with funding administered by a treasury chief who didn’t pay his taxes,   for which we’ll be taxed for four years before any benefits take effect,   by a government which has   already bankrupted Social Security and Medicare,   all to be overseen by a surgeon general   who is obese,   and financed by a country that’s broke!!!!!   ‘What could possibly go wrong?’


0450 3/29/11………WHY?

For God’s sake, why do we hero worship idiots? Why is it our society can tell you who is on Dancing with the Stars but cannot tell you who the Secretary of State is? Charlie Sheen, high on drugs gets more attention that our being worried about the danger our troops face in combat. We are more worried about the fighting over Elizabeth Taylor’s fortune than the family of a young Marine killed defending our country.  Why is that?

Gordon Kuhn, Poet in the Rain


0418 3/29/11………..When will we come to the realization that these people we elect work for us and deserve to be treated as employees and not permanent position holders to hero worship. We are the ones who need to learn to control this nonsense. Four years employment then out the door. No retirement program. No permanent health benefits. No right to raise their wages or to give themselves cost of living raises. Enough, America, enough.  Wake up.

These people work for you and for me and we need to make sure they understand that….but more importantly, we need to understand that.

years ago

I felt,

I touched

a violin!

Just the once.

It was gently placed

within my hands,

and I was shown

a single note,

and how to play

just the one note.


years ago,

and as I touched the bow

to the strings

which lay silent waiting

waiting for the barely felt touch,


as it sang out

as the bow crossed lightly

over the tightly stretched

and silent waiting strings

I was seduced!

My soul was lifted free

to dance alone in the sky

swept away by the single note

above where no one could see

and as the one note pierced the evening air

it touched me so soft and so gentle fair

as would a lover’s fingertips follow curves

and brought joy beyond belief

the first love

the first kiss

Once, just the once

I found myself to have been seduced

So gently taken

So softly led

to a waiting bed of music laid

so many years ago.

Saturday Morning CERT Class

Community Emergency Reaction Team (CERT) we, Jan and I, are becoming members of this group which trains people to handle emergency activities in the event of devastating events (earthquakes, hurricanes, man made, etc.) We are now in day four of training. We get to put out fires…yay. Looking forward to that. Good program. In the event of a problem like a hurricane that destroys the area the CERT people will have food, medical supplies, water and radios to communicate with the outside world. I think it is a good idea.
