Having a Bad Day?



Still think you are having a Bad Day?
The next time you feel that nobody loves you, no one cares, or that no one ever notices you, think of this guy:



Things Got You Down? Well Then, Consider These . READ ON!!


In a hospital's Intensive Care Unit, patients always died in the same bed, on Sunday morning, at about 11:00 am, regardless of their medical condition. This puzzled the doctors and some even thought it had something to do with the supernatural.

No one could solve the mystery as to why the deaths occurred around 11:00 AM Sunday, so a worldwide team of experts was assembled to investigate the cause of the incidents The next Sunday morning, a few minutes before 11:00 AM all of the doctors and nurses nervously waited outside the ward to see for themselves what the terrible phenomenon was all about. Some were holding wooden crosses, prayer books, and other holy objects to ward off the evil spirits Just when the clock struck 11:00, Fernando Rodriguez , the part-time Sunday sweeper, entered the ward and unplugged the life support system so he could use the vacuum cleaner.




Still Having a Bad Day?


The average cost of rehabilitating a seal after the Exxon Valdez Oil spill in Alaska was $80,000.00 At a special ceremony, two of the most expensively saved animals were being released back into the wild amid cheers and applause from onlookers.. A minute later, in full view, a killer whale ate them both.




Still think you are having a Bad Day?



A woman came home to find her husband in the kitchen shaking frantically, almost in a dancing frenzy, with some kind of wire running from his waist towards the electric kettle. Intending to jolt him away from the deadly current, she ran outside and grabbed a handy plank of wood and smacked him with it, breaking his arm in two places. Up to that moment, he had been happily listening to his iPod



Are You OK Now? - No?


Two animal rights defenders were protesting the cruelty of sending pigs to a slaughterhouse in Bonn , Germany . Suddenly, all two thousand pigs broke loose and escaped through a broken fence, stampeding madly. The two helpless protesters were trampled to death.



What? STILL having a Bad Day?


Iraqi terrorist Khay Rahnajet didn't pay enough postage on a letter bomb. It came back with 'Return to Sender' stamped on it. Forgetting it was the bomb; he opened it and was blown to bits. God is good!

Grandma Still Drives ---Priceless







All of us have seen something like this before, but perhaps didn’t understand what we were looking at! And as we approach our senior years, maybe we’ll be doing something like this too!




Grandma is eighty-eight years old and still drives her own car. She writes:
Dear Grand-daughter,

The other day I went up to our local Christian book store and saw a 'Honk if you love Jesus' bumper sticker ..

I was feeling particularly sassy that day because I had just come from a thrilling choir performance, followed by a thunderous prayer meeting..

So, I bought the sticker and put it on my bumper.

Boy, am I glad I did; what an uplifting experience that followed.

I was stopped at a red light at a busy intersection, just lost in thought about the Lord and how good he is, and I didn't notice that the light had changed.

It is a good thing someone else loves Jesus because if he hadn't honked, I'd never have noticed.

I found that lots of people love Jesus!

While I was sitting there, the guy behind started honking like crazy, and then he leaned out of his window and screamed, 'For the love of God!'

'Go! Go! Go! Jesus Christ, GO!'

What an exuberant cheerleader he was for Jesus!

Everyone started honking!

I just leaned out my window and started waving and smiling at all those loving people.

I even honked my horn a few times to share in the love!

There must have been a man from Florida back there because I heard him yelling something about a sunny beach..

I saw another guy waving in a funny way with only his middle finger stuck up in the air.

I asked my young teenage grandson in the back seat what that meant.

He said it was probably a Hawaiian good luck sign or something.

Well, I have never met anyone from Hawaii , so I leaned out the window and gave him the good luck sign right back.

My grandson burst out laughing.

Why even he was enjoying this religious experience!!

A couple of the people were so caught up in the joy of the moment that they got out of their cars and started walking towards me.

I bet they wanted to pray or ask what church I attended, but this is when I noticed the light had changed.

So, grinning, I waved at all my brothers and sisters, and drove on through the intersection.

I noticed that I was the only car that got through the intersection before the light changed again and felt kind of sad that I had to leave them after all the love we had shared.

So I slowed the car down, leaned out the window and gave them all the Hawaiian good luck sign one last time as I drove away. Praise the Lord for such wonderful folks!!

Will write again soon,

Love, Grandma





I Love My Attorney


After living what I felt was a 'decent' life, my time on earth came to the end.



The first thing I remember is sitting on a bench in the waiting room of what I thought to be a court house.



The doors opened and I was instructed to come in and have a seat by the defense table.



As I looked around I saw the 'prosecutor'.



He was a villainous looking gent who snarled as he stared at me. He definitely was the most evil person I have ever seen.



I sat down and looked to my left and there sat My Attorney, a kind and gentle looking man whose appearance seemed so familiar to me, I felt I knew Him.



The corner door opened and there appeared the Judge in full flowing robes.



He commanded an awesome presence as He moved across the room. I couldn't take my eyes off of Him.



As He took His seat behind the bench, He said, 'Let us begin.'



The prosecutor rose and said, 'My name is Satan and I am here to show you why this man belongs in hell.'



He proceeded to tell of lies that I told, things that I stole, and In the past when I cheated others. Satan told of other horrible perversions that were once in my life, and the more he spoke, the further down in my seat I sank.



I was so embarrassed that I couldn't look at anyone, even my own Attorney, as the Devil told of sins that even I had completely forgotten about.



As upset as I was at Satan for telling all these things about me, I was equally upset at My Attorney who sat there silently not offering any form of defense at all.



I know I had been guilty of those things, but I had done some good in my life - couldn't that at least equal out part of the harm I'd done?



Satan finished with a fury and said, 'This man belongs in hell, he is guilty of all that I have charged and there is not a person who can prove otherwise.'



When it was His turn, My Attorney first asked if He might approach the bench. The Judge allowed this over the strong objection of Satan, and beckoned Him to come forward.



As He got up and started walking, I was able to see Him in His full splendor and majesty.



I realized why He seemed so familiar; this was Jesus representing me, my Lord and my Savior.



He stopped at the bench and softly said to the Judge, 'HI, DAD,' and then He turned to address the court.



'Satan was correct in saying that this man had sinned, I won't deny any of these allegations. And, yes, the wage of sin is death, and this man deserves to be punished.'



Jesus took a deep breath and turned to His Father with outstretched arms and proclaimed, 'However, I died on the cross so that this person might have eternal life and he has accepted Me as his Savior, so he is Mine.'



My Lord continued with, 'His name is written in the Book of Life, and no one can snatch him from Me. Satan still does not understand yet. This man is not to be given justice, but rather mercy.'



As Jesus sat down, He quietly paused, looked at His Father and said, 'There is nothing else that needs to be done. I've done it all..'



The Judge lifted His mighty hand and slammed the gavel down. The following words bellowed from His lips.....



'This man is free. The penalty for him has already been paid in full. Case dismissed.'



I asked Jesus as He gave me my instructions where to go next, 'Have you ever lost a case?'



Christ lovingly smiled and said, 'Everyone that has come to Me and asked Me to represent them has received the same verdict as you, ~Paid In Full.'



If you do not pass this along to 15 people immediately,absolutely nothing will happen.



Passing this on to anyone you consider a friend, (as I have done here), will bless you both.



'Stop telling God how big your storm is. Instead, tell the storm how big your God is!

Why Are Republicans Willing to Help Obama Make America More Like Europe When the Welfare State Is Collapsing?


« Talking Fiscal Cliff and GOP Fecklessness with the Instapundit
November 30, 2012 by Dan Mitchell
Washington frustrates me. The entire town is based on legalized corruption as an unworthy elite figure out new ways of accumulating unearned wealth by skimming money from the nation’s producers.

But one thing that especially irks me is the way people focus on the trees and forget about the forest. Politicians and journalists are now engaged in an inside-baseball game of analyzing every twist and turn of the fiscal cliff negotiations.

That’s all fine and well, but perhaps it would be a good idea to talk about the need to fix the real crisis of excessive spending instead of arguing about how fast we should be traveling in the wrong direction.

And let’s not delude ourselves. In the absence of real entitlement reform, the United States is doomed to repeat Europe’s mistakes.

And how are things going in Europe? Well, I’m glad you ask. Let’s look at some excerpts from an Associated Press report.

Another month, another record unemployment rate for the economy of the 17 European Union countries that use the euro. Figures released Friday by Eurostat, the EU’s statistics office, showed that the recession in the eurozone pushed unemployment up in the currency bloc to 11.7 percent in October, the highest level since the introduction of the euro in 1999. …Eurostat found that 18.7 million people were out of work across the eurozone, an increase of 173,000 on the previous month and 2.2 million higher than the year before. The wider 27-nation EU that includes non-euro countries such as Britain and Poland had an unemployment rate of 10.7 percent in October and a total of 25.9 million out of work. …”Talk of a `lost generation’ of young people now looks like an alarming possibility,” said Andrea Broughton, principal research fellow at the Institute for Employment Studies.

In other words, we may complain about America’s miserable track record on jobs during the Obama years, but at some point in the future we may someday look back on 8 percent unemployment as good news.

Unfortunately, the crowd in Washington doesn’t want to acknowledge that the real problem is spending. And I’m particularly irked (but not surprised) that Republicans now seem willing to go along with Obama even though they won this fight back in 2010 when they didn’t control the House and had fewer seats in the Senate. Here’s what I said to one of the local DC stations.


I realize I’m sounding glum, so let’s close out this post with a couple of amusing cartoons about America’s European future.

I’ve already shared the “European Lemming” cartoon. This one has the same theme.



Other Eric Allie cartoons can be enjoyed here, here , here, here, here, and here.

And here another cartoon with the same theme.



If you like this Bok cartoon, some of my other favorites can be seen here, here, here, here, here, here, and here.

If you still haven’t cheered up, this bit of Dave Barry humor about the European fiscal crisis is a classic, and I’d also recommend this bit of unintentional satire.

General Relieved of Duty for Refusing to Stand Down on Sept 11th

General Carter Ham relieved of duty as Commander of AFRICOM
http://gerarddirect.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/10/general-ham.jpg
Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta announced on Sunday that General Carter Ham Commander of GOC Africa Command (Africom), headquartered in Stuttgart, Germany has been relieved of his assignment for refusing to obey orders not to assist the US personnel in Benghazi on the night of September 11. Army General David Rodriguez has been appointed by President Obama to replace him. U.S. Africa Command is one of six unified geographic commands within the Department of Defense unified command structure.
Gen. Ham refused to take responsibility for the decision not to provide essential air coverage and other support for the beleaguered personnel at the Consulate. After the information was leaked last week that three urgent requests for support were denied to the Americans trapped in the Consulate and the Annex, President Barack Obama said on Sunday, “The minute I found out what was going on, I gave three very clear directives – Number 1, make sure that we are securing our personnel and doing whatever we need to.” According to the highly decorated, four-star General, Carter Ham, the President is lying.
The Ambassador to Libya, Chris Stevens, another official, and two CIA assets and former NAVY SEALS disregarded repeated orders to stand down, and rescued several people from the burning Consulate under heavy fire. They requested assistance at least three times and were summarily denied each time. They had AQ mortars painted with laser pointers and requested a C130 attack on the target or a missile strike with an F-22 or F-35. They had laid the groundwork for a military response that would create minimum collateral damage. In return for their heroism, their urgent requests were denied, and they died defending America.
According to our sources, General Ham received copies of the e-mails that had been sent to the White House from Benghazi, requesting military support at the Consulate and the Annex after the attacks began. General Ham had a rapid response unit ready to deploy and communicated that to the Pentagon. He then received the order to stand down. His response to the Pentagon was essentially that he could not do that. Within a few minutes after sending that response, his second in command told General Ham that he was relieved of his command, effective immediately.
On Saturday, October 27, Panetta confirmed that General Ham had been relieved of his assignment.

Terrorist Apologist Appointed Number 3 At DOJ............



ADMIN II

Wonder why the Obama administration announced yesterday that the Guantanamo Bay inmates will be coming to a town near you? Obama is “disgorging” mass murderers from Gitmo to be housed in jails right down the street from your house.
Two words: Tony West.
The same Tony West that provided free legal counsel to “American Taliban” John Walker Lindh in 2002. The same Tony West who is today the third in command at DOJ and in this role directly oversees litigation for the Gitmo detainees.
The term “treason” comes to mind…
The Western Center For Journalism

=====================================================
Everyone that is associated w/the Obama Administration are America Haters. They are there to bring America to it’s knees.
Did Obama steal the election so he could do good things for America?
That’s not what hardened criminals do.
What more can we say: The 47% Liberal loons who drove the great dictator in for another term have spoken.
They want a Muslim President. They do not want America to be a Christian country.
They want Muslim terrorists to overrun this country. We can yell to impeach the great dictator, but to what good, what will the loony toons elect in his place. And besides, we have King Harry still running the Senate and he will not let an impeachment go through. Harry, Obama and the loony left have effectively destroyed our great country. May they all RIP and soon.
=====================================================
There is one way to stop Obama and Reid legally, and their is nothing either they or the entire Liberal Party can do to about it. It is called a CONSTITUTIONAL CONVENTION. If the country is to survive then the states must convene another convention immediately. There are many changes needed in how the current out of control government operates; and Congress, whether Democrat or Republican controlled, has repeatedly demonstrated it has no intention of producing those changes.
STATES – The fate of the United States is now in your hands. WHAT WILL YOU DO?
=====================================================
Can anyone really say he or she is surprised, when the #1 Terrorist & apologist sits on the throne in the Oval Office??

Well, in my opinion, it is way past time for the US to get out of the UN, and get the useless UN out of America. They just voted to allow Palestine Statehood. Thus they just gave Hamas a legitimate place in the world. The US opposed it, and they passed it anyway. So much for the US standing within the UN

obama is bringing them over here so he can let them out when he gives the terrorist cells the word to attack and take us over. He will have the worse muslim terrorists here on our soil at the time he needs them most.

Doesn't anyone see this? He's getting his ducks in a row, folks. One step at a time. If he does all these things at once people will become suspicious. If he does it in stages the people won't notice. Too busy with elections, too busy with Thanksgiving, too busy with Christmas, too busy with just living our lives and not paying attention. 85% of our country do not pay attention to what he's doing. And, this is what he wants, makes it easier for him to do things like this.

I would bet that 95% of the people don't know this, and those would be the ones that watch ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, They think that these stations are the gospel in reporting. They have no clue that obama tells them what they can and cannot say.


We should be screaming to the tops of our voices on this. We will be so sorry if we don't.

Santa Barbara Beach..



The first picture and the last picture are taken at the beach in Santa Barbara right next to the Pier. There is a veterans group that started putting a cross and candle for every death in Iraq and Afghanistan.The amazing thing is that they only do it on the weekends.

They put up this graveyard and take it down every weekend. Guys sleep in the sand next to it and keep watch over it at night so nobody messes with it. Every cross has the name, rank and D.O.B. and D.O.D. on it.Very moving, very powerful. So many young volunteers. So many 30 to 40 year olds as well.

Amazing!

The ACLU has filed a suit to have all military cross-shaped headstones removed.



And that they filed another suit to end prayer from the military completely. They're making great progress.

The Navy Chaplains can no longer mention Jesus' name in prayer thanks to the ACLU and our new administration.



Keep forwarding this e-mail to others. I'm not breaking this one. I'm asking that you not break it either.



If I get it a 1000 times, I'll forward it a 1000 times! Prayer for our soldiers... please don't break it! Please send this on after a short prayer. Please, let us pray... Prayer:

'Heavenly Father, hold our troops in Your loving hands. Protect them as they protect us.
Bless them and their families for the selfless acts they perform for us in this our time of need.
These things I humbly ask in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, Amen.'

GOD BLESS YOU FOR PASSING IT ON!

Make the Democrats Own the Obama Economy , Ann Coulter



Nov 28, 2012

One bright spot of Barack Obama's re-election was knowing that unemployment rates were about to soar for the precise groups that voted for him -- young people, unskilled workers and single women with degrees in gender studies. But now the Democrats are sullying my silver lining by forcing Republicans to block an utterly pointless tax-raising scheme in order to blame the coming economic Armageddon on them.

Democrats are proposing to reinstate the Bush tax cuts for everyone ... except "the rich." (Why do only tax cuts come with an expiration date? Why not tax increases? Why not Obamacare? How about New York City's "temporary" rent control measures intended for veterans returning from World War II?)

Raising taxes only on the top 2 percent of income earners will do nothing to reduce the deficit. There's not enough money there -- even assuming, contrary to all known history, that the top 2 percent won't find ways to reduce their taxable income or that the imaginary increased government revenue would be applied to deficit reduction, anyway.

Apart from Obamacare, it's difficult to think of a more effective method of destroying jobs than raising taxes on "the rich." This isn't a wealth tax on useless gigolos like John Kerry -- it's an income tax on people who are currently engaged in some profitable enterprise. Their business profits, which could have been used to hire more employees, will instead be used to pay the government.

But Republicans are over a barrel. Unless Republicans and Democrats reach an agreement, the Bush tax cuts expire at the end of the year. By pushing to extend the tax cuts for everyone except "the rich," Democrats get to look like champions of middle class tax cuts and Republicans can be portrayed as caring only about the rich.

And when the economy tanks, the Non-Fox Media will blame Republicans.

The economy will tank because, as you will recall, Obama is still president. Government rules, regulations, restrictions, forms and inspections are about to drown the productive sector. Obamacare is descending on job creators like a fly swatter on a gnat. Obama has already managed to produce the only "recovery" that is worse than the preceding recession since the Great Depression. And he says, "You ain't seen nothing yet."

The coming economic collapse is written in the stars, but if Republicans "obstruct" the Democrats by blocking tax hikes on top income earners, they're going to take 100 percent of the blame for the Obama economy.

He Called Her First!



Just after midnight on election night, Barack Obama picked up the phone and called Hillary Clinton.

He asked her to do one thing . . .

. . . renew his administration’s war on the Second Amendment rights of Americans.

Less than 12 hours later, Clinton signed on to new negotiations to pass the UN Gun Ban.

On that same day, the Mexican delegation at the UN “called for an international, legally binding and solid treaty that would establish regulations for the conventional arms trade, including in small arms and light weapons . . .”

To make matters worse, Mexico is also leading a growing contingent at the UN hell-bent on ramming through the UN Gun Ban even if there is significant opposition.

So it should come as no surprise that gun owners are in for the fight of our lives when bureaucrats from across the globe meet in New York to pass the UN Gun Ban March 18-28, 2013.

But even before the UN meets again in March, the threat to our gun rights is alive and well -- RIGHT NOW -- during the lame duck session of Congress.

That's why I'm asking ALL of NAGR's 1.4-million members and supporters to stand ready to fight any attempt at restricting our gun rights not only at the UN but also during the next few weeks.

As you may remember, NAGR's grassroots army led the charge that stalled the "Small Arms Treaty" Conference this past summer.



Many gun owners thought the battle was over having heard the “inside-the-beltway” institutional gun lobby declare victory.

But my staff here at NAGR knew their victory celebration was premature, and we continued to recruit, mobilize and inform gun owners nationwide about the dangers facing their gun rights.

And less than five weeks later, petty tyrants at the UN rammed the UN Gun Ban through the Programme Against Small Arms meeting.

These new "International Small Arms Control Standards" are a nightmare of third-world gun control demands . . .

. . . and the anti-gun crowd at the UN is crowing that this is exactly what they need to finally pass the "Small Arms Treaty."

A quick review of the UN Programme's new Small Arms Control Standards is enough to make my skin crawl.

This is nothing less than full-bore registration, confiscation and destruction:

*** Begin "marking small arms and light weapons and keeping accurate and easily retrievable records of them;"

*** Create "an appropriate weapons collection or registration strategy;"

*** Identify "groups holding small arms and/or light weapons and their age/gender profiles, the types and number of weapons held;"

*** Determine "capacity for destruction, including required improvements to equipment and procedures."

Worse, as we've seen in the past, the Programme Against Small Arms can be directly implemented via Executive Order -- without a single vote in Congress.

As more and more details leak out about what the UN is planning, the scarier this fight becomes.

The stakes are clear -- our gun rights are on the line.

If you truly value your Second Amendment rights, please help me fight to save them.

That’s why it’s more important than ever that ALL gun owners stand arm-in-arm in opposing the UN Gun Ban.

If you haven’t yet done so, please sign your Stop Hillary’s UN Gun Ban survey right now and then chip in $10 or $20 to help NAGR fight back to defend our gun rights.

Thanks, in advance, for taking action.

For Freedom,

Dudley Brown
Executive Vice President

P.S. Barack Obama's first action after winning re-election was asking Hillary Clinton to renew his administration's push to pass the UN Gun Ban.

Unfortunately, this list could go on and on. Our country is run by idiots. We are in distress. Where do we go from here?

OK, this is getting simply bizarre.

On Monday, June 25th 2012, the following occurred: The Supreme Court unanimously - yes, UNANIMOUSLY - upheld the portion of Arizona 's Immigration Law that directs law enforcement officers to check the immigration status of EVERYONE who is ARRESTED for a crime. It not just "ALLOWS" them to check, but "DIRECTS" them to check. That means it's mandatory.

Less than three hours later, the President of the United States issued an executive order BLOCKING THE ENTIRE STATE OF ARIZONA'S ACCESS to the the Federal Database that would allow such checks. The only State or Local entity EVER to be blocked.

One hour after that (which means they had it all ready in advance), the Department of Justice went live with a toll-free number, a web site, and ads, ASKING FOR PEOPLE TO REPORT BEING "RACIALLY PROFILED" because of this ruling, so they - THE U.S. JUSTICE DEPARTMENT - can file "Civil Rights" lawsuits against the Police Departments, Sheriffs, Cities, Counties and State of Arizona .

In other words, the American Citizens of the State of Arizona are going to be sued for vast sums of money, BY THEIR OWN FEDERAL GOVERNMENT, for enforcing a law that The Supreme Court UNANIMOUSLY held as constitutional.

Is it just me, or is this getting ridiculous?

The Best and Worst Charities to Donate to.

NEED TO BE CAREFUL WHO WE DONATE MONEY, ETC. TO






The Terry Fox organization contributes $0.83 for every dollar raised to cancer research.

The Canadian Cancer Society: $0.22 for every dollar raised.



Admin costs for the Terry Fox Run are low because most of the admin costs are paid by its many volunteers. Only $0.17 is used for run promotion and supplies. Every person organizing & managing absorbs all expenses other than the run donor sheets and some signage.


Do you know that the CEO of Shriners’, the Imperial Potentate, makes $0.00 per year? How about that for a salary? There are 22 hospitals helping kids in Canada , the USA and in Mexico . His salary is matched by the Provincial Potentate’s income which is also $0.00 per year.

So the next time you see a Shriner in a mall, selling whatever, give generously.
……………….


As you open your pockets for yet another natural disaster, keep the following information in mind.

We have listed the charities from the highest (worst paid offender) to the lowest (least paid offender).

The worst offender, for the 11th year in a row is UNICEF, whose CEO receives $1,200,000 per year, plus a Rolls Royce for his exclusive use wherever he goes, and an expense account that is rumored to be well over $150,000.

Only pennies from the donations go to the UNICEF cause (less than $0.14 per dollar of income).

The second worst offender this year is Marsha J. Evans, President and CEO of the American Red Cross.

Her salary for the year ending in 2009 was $651,957 plus expenses. She enjoys 6 weeks fully paid holidays including all related expenses during the holiday trip for her and her husband and kids, and 100% fully paid health & dental plan for her and her family….for life!

This means out of every dollar they bring in, about $0.39 goes to charity causes.

The third worst offender, again for the 7th time, was Brian Gallagher, President of the United Way. He receives a $375,000 base salary (US funds), plus so many expense benefits it's hard to keep track as to what it is all worth, including a fully paid lifetime membership at 2 golf courses
(1 in Canada, 1 in the USA), 2 luxury vehicles, a yacht club membership, 3 major company gold credit cards for his personal expenses... and so on….
This equates to about $0.51 per dollar of income going to charity causes.

Fourth worst offender, in the fourth spot for every year since this information has been made available since 1998, is amazingly yet again, World Vision. Its President (Canada) receives $300,000 base salary, plus a home valued in the $700,000 - $800,000 range (completely furnished, all housing expenses, including taxes, water/sewer, telephone/fax, HD/high speed cable, weekly maid service and pool/yard maintenance), fully paid private schooling for his children, upscale automobile, and a $55,000 personal expense account for clothing/food, plus a $125,000 business expense account.

And get this: because it is a "religious based" charity, World Vision pays little or no taxes, can receive government assistance and does not have to declare were the money goes.

Only about $0.52 of earned income per dollar is available for charity causes.

……..


Of the some sixty-odd charities we looked at, the lowest paid President/CEO/Commissioner was heading up a charity group in Canada . We found, believe it or not, that it was...



Ready for this...?



I think you might be surprised...



It is none other than...


The Salvation Army's Commissioner Todd Bassett, who receives a salary of only $13,000 per year (plus housing) for managing this $2 billion dollar organization.

Which means about $0.93 per dollar earned, is readily available and goes back out to local charity causes.



Truly amazing…


…and well done, "Sally Ann"!!

No further comment is necessary..



So think twice before selecting the Charity of your choice.

Which one really does the best for the most, or the least for the most, for that matter?????




Remember that charity starts at home.

Let's look after the people of this country.
……..

99% of people probably won't forward this.

I just did!

It is better to be informed than not!!!

Obama Supporters: “YOU have sown the wind. Now YOU will reap the whirlwind.” Many More Will Suffer!


If you are under 30

If you are under age 30, gee thanks.

Your demographic voted 2-1 for Barack Obama. It was the largest demographic margin he had. Had the under 30 vote split evenly, Obama would not have had a second term.

Do you have any idea what is in store for America and you? You may not like it.

As a baby boomer, I have to laugh at what you have done. I have lived long enough to understand a few things. If you are under 30, you may not yet have realized the old truism, “the older I get, the smarter my parents got.”

When I was 21, we were faced with a President almost as bad as Barack Obama. His name was Jimmy Carter. My first vote for President helped to send him packing. Of course the Republicans nominated Ronald Reagan. This year, the GOP offered you Mitt Romney.

As bad as Romney was, Obama was worse.

There is an old saying, “you have sown the wind. Now you will reap the whirlwind.”

Democrat policies are going to make your generation the first generation in American history that will not be better of than their parents.

The left has pushed student loans as a method of financing your college. By taking all market controls out of the loan process, not only has it allowed massive inflation in the education sector which is driving the cost of your education beyond any reasonable point of return, it is also making it possible for students and banks to make insanely stupid decisions.

You can currently borrow $200,000 to get a degree that will net you a job that will pay you only $30,000 a year. Sure you can go spend $150,000 to get a degree in feminist studies at some Ivy League college but where the hell are you going to work?

On a Starbucks salary, you are not even going to be able to pay the interest, let alone the principle. Thanks to another “rock star” Democrat President, under most circumstances, you cannot discharge student loans in bankruptcy.

So as you enter your career, thanks to Democrat policies, you will be saddled with massive debt. What little you make from your entry-level job is going to have to cover your expenses plus you will have to make some kind of payments on those loans.

Do you need or want a new car? Forget it. Your credit will be destroyed. Save for a new car? Good luck. Your next car will probably be a previously exploded 1976 Ford Pinto.

Most people my age bought their first house in their twenties. Thanks to not only the student loan debacle but also the housing bubble that was brought about by Barack Obama’s party, you will be lucky if you are able to buy your first house in your forties.

During the campaign, Paul Ryan made a great quote about kids still living with their parents at age 26. Forget 26, how about 36 or even 46?

Thanks to the provisions of Obamacare, many companies are slashing their employees’ hours so they are now part-time employees. The new future for many of you will be putting together several part time jobs just so you can make ends meet. If you are among the lucky few who have a high demand job, you will possibly be able to get ahead. You will get the forty-hour work week, the insurance and the other benefits. For a majority of you, that will not be happening.

Like living with Mom and Dad? Let’s hope Mom and Dad have room for you. Multi generational housing in many cases is going to become the new norm. If you get married, it won’t be just a matter of will he or she say yes. It will also be, does Mom and Dad mind if you and your new spouse live with them.

Do you want to start a family? Again, it will become more of a family decision than just a decision between the two of you.

Obama’s latest plan is the one that really makes me laugh at you. You see, if you are under 30, congratulations. You just became my generation’s cash cow.

The Obama Regime wants to nationalize Individual Retirement Accounts (IRA’s) and replace them with a government sponsored retirement plan.

Given how well Social Security and Medicare have been run, you should be terrified.

The leading edge of the baby boom generation turned 66 this year. The trailing edge will turn 50 next year. There are more of us and we vote in greater numbers than you.

Democracy’s great Achilles heel is that sooner or later the people discover they can vote themselves benefits from the Treasury. Unfortunately this spells the beginning of the end for Democracy.

When we boomers start getting this government retirement system, do you know what is going to happen? Politicians already recognize the value of our votes. Every two years, they are going to come to us and promise us more and more lavish retirement benefits. All we have to do is vote for them.

An overwhelming majority will.

And every two years, we will be treated to the commercials claiming the Republicans are going to throw old people off the cliff. The Democrats always like to claim that Republicans are going to leave old people on the streets to starve and freeze. Why do they do that? Because that kind of advertising works.

So there will be an ever-growing government pension entitlement that someone will have to pay for. Since the people drawing the retirement won’t be working, guess who that leaves?

The baby boomers are a unique generation. We are taking better care of ourselves. Our “youth” is lasting longer than previous generations. We will smash life expectancy records.

In his book, Physics of the Future, renowned theoretical physicist Michio Kaku predicts that we are just a couple of decades away from some great medical breakthroughs that could extend life expectancies by decades.

If you are under thirty now, you could be in your seventies and still paying for us baby boomers.

This is what you got by reelecting Barack Obama.

There is an old saying, “you get the government you deserve.”

In this case, that saying has never been truer.

You Might Be A ‘Right Wing Extremist?’.......IF........

Take the survey to see if you are a “right wing extremist.” Hint: If you love this great country of ours, the Left says you are in fact a right wing extremist. Take it as a complement!
I’d rather be a “Right Wing Extremist” by Wild Bills standards, than a Republican, Democrat, Muslim creepy person, Racist, or a liberal. Thanks Wild Bill, your the best! We do not live in Europe, nor are we in the land of OZ. So either be proud to be an American, or not!
I am 100% one of them. I am proud if it,Proud to be ab American and I do believe in God and Country.
=====================================================
Yes, I’m a “right wing extremist.” It’s a compliment. I believe in my God-given country and all the God-given rights/liberties protected under the God-given U.S. Constitution.
I believe in the God of Jacob/Abraham not Allah.
And we proud American Christians must resist this evil empire under the most evil one, Obama.
We must resist all evil and never surrender. We must denounce those at war with God’s law. We must confront the lukewarm Christians and the treachery in the Church.
We must prepare for battle in wisdom not fear; for the persecutions that now await us. We must wake up God's army to fight for God.
We must fight for Life and Truth and Justice according to the Laws of God and the teachings of Jesus Christ, even against great odds.
We must always remember what Christ said, “In the world, you will have tribulations, but be of good cheer: I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33)
=====================================================
I’m as right wing as you can get——–however i am not a nutcase—— I disagree about gutting the military budget and some of the more radical conservatives—yes we should be more fiscally aware but with the food stamp,phony disability claimants,and the medicaid frauds they need much more investigation——with ambulance chasing lawyers blatantly advertising on TV how they will aid you in getting your share of the free piece of the pie I believe in more oversight—-don’t wait for the pols for that’s their constituency and the government drones will do nothing to cut their numbers down or they will be on food stamps or unemployment at least.................

The sacred rights of mankind are not to be rummaged for, among old parchments, or musty records. They are written, as with a sun beam, in the whole volume of human nature, by the hand of the divinity itself; and can never be erased or obscured by mortal power. Life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness These are natural rights – gifts from GOD, NOT government. – Alexander Hamilton

"A nation of well-informed men, who have been taught to know and prize the rights that God has given them, cannot be enslaved. It is in the region of ignorance that tyranny begins!" – Benjamin Franklin

I’ve been thinking….It started out innocently enough. I began to think at parties now and then -- just to loosen up. Inevitably, though, one thought led to another, and soon I was more than just a social thinker. I began to think alone -- "to relax," I told myself -- but I knew it wasn't true. Thinking became more and more important to me, and finally I was thinking all the time. That was when things began to sour at home. One evening I turned off the TV and asked my wife about the meaning of life. She spent that night at her mother's. I began to think on the job. I knew that thinking and employment don't mix, but I couldn't help myself. I began to avoid friends at lunchtime so I could read Thoreau, Muir, Confucius and Kafka. I would return to the office dizzied and confused, asking, "What is it exactly we are doing here?"

One day the boss called me in. He said, "Listen, I like you, and it hurts me to say this, but your thinking has become a real problem. If you don't stop thinking on the job, you'll have to find another job." This gave me a lot to think about. I came home early after my conversation with the boss. "Honey," I confessed, "I've been thinking..." "I know you've been thinking," she said, "and I want a divorce!" "But Honey, surely it's not that serious." "It is serious," she said, lower lip a quiver "You think as much as college professors and college professors don't make any money, so if you keep on thinking, we won't have any money!" "That's a faulty syllogism," I said impatiently.

She exploded in tears of rage and frustration, but I was in no mood to deal with the emotional drama. "I'm going to the library," I snarled as I stomped out the door. I headed for the library, in the mood for some Nietzsche. I roared into the parking lot with NPR on the radio and ran up to the big glass doors. They didn't open. The library was closed. To this day, I believe that a Higher Power was looking out for me that night. Leaning on the unfeeling glass, whimpering for Zarathustra, a poster caught my eye, "Friend, is heavy thinking ruining your life?" it asked. You probably recognize that line.

It comes from the standard Thinkers Anonymous poster. This is why I am what I am today: a recovering thinker. I never miss a TA meeting. At each meeting we watch a non-educational video; last week it was "Porky's." Then we share experiences about how we avoided thinking since the last meeting. I still have my job, and things are a lot better at home.

Life just seemed easier, somehow, as soon as I stopped thinking. I think the road to recovery is nearly complete for me.

Today I took the final step...I joined the Democratic Party!

SARCASM OFF! :)

And You Thought Lincoln Freed Them....


Many have wondered why slavery lasted so long, no rebellion, no work shut down etc.

Some have speculated that is because the slaves were told they were entitled to much: a place to live, food, work etc. It might have been very difficult to move from such an entitlement status to being a free person, finding work, bettering oneself and moving on with the status of being black. So----------“the Man” was there to take care and provide for us ‘cause we are the Man’s. Why change?

Emancipation came from the consciences of outsiders who judged the slaves as being less than what they deserved. e

Obama will shut outsiders down (ask Romney). He likes the “bought loyalty” and it re-elected him.

I am told that aspirin will be heavily taxed under Obamacare. Why? Because they are white and they work.

Well, Well, Russians say we elected a Communist.... (i guess we just were not supposed to know that ?)



Politics
Russian News Outlet Pravda (Previously the Official Press of the USSR) Labels Obama a ‘Communist’ in Scathing OpEd

Posted on November 26, 2012 at 10:48am by Tiffany Gabbay
Editor’s note: We’ll be discussing this story and all the day’s news on our live BlazeCast at 1pm ET:


Vintage Pravda cover during the days of the USSR.

The famed Russian news site “Pravda,” which ironically was formed as the official Communist publication of the former Soviet Union, recently released a scathing opinion column entitled, “Obama’s Soviet Mistake,” in which the author unabashedly labels the U.S. president a “Communist without question promoting the Communist Manifesto without calling it so.”

The author, Xavier Lerma, goes on to note how Obama’s “cult of personality” has mesmerized the ignorant in America, who will follow the hope and change icon in much the same way as ”fools” still praise Lenin and Stalin in Russia.

“Obama’s fools and Stalin’s fools share the same drink of illusion.”

Adding an interesting twist to the article, the author juxtaposes President Obama with Vladimir Putin, noting that the Russian president has been sounding more and more like “Ronald Reagan” or other “conservatives in America” who seek to promote smaller government and lower taxes. Lerma attributes the following remarks to Putin regarding the country’s taxes and the economy:

“…we are reducing taxes on production, investing money in the economy. We are optimizing state expenses.

The second possible mistake would be excessive interference into the economic life of the country and the absolute faith into the all-mightiness of the state.

There are no grounds to suggest that by putting the responsibility over to the state, one can achieve better results.

Unreasonable expansion of the budget deficit, accumulation of the national debt – are as destructive as an adventurous stock market game.

During the time of the Soviet Union the role of the state in economy was made absolute, which eventually lead to the total non-competitiveness of the economy. That lesson cost us very dearly. I am sure no one would want history to repeat itself.”

Reading Putin’s speech “without knowing the author,” begins Lerma, “one would think it was written by Reagan or another conservative in America.”

“The speech promotes smaller government and less taxes. It comes as no surprise to those who know Putin as a conservative,” Lerma writes with irony.

After referring to liberalism as a “psychosis,” Lerma blasts ”O’bomber” over Fast and Furious and goes on to state:

He is a Communist without question promoting the Communist Manifesto without calling it so. How shrewd he is in America. His cult of personality mesmerizes those who cannot go beyond their ignorance. They will continue to follow him like those fools who still praise Lenin and Stalin in Russia. Obama’s fools and Stalin’s fools share the same drink of illusion.

The author questions if Americans have ever read history and concludes that American schools have been “conquered by Communists long ago,” paving the way for a revisionist history that would only lead to the election of a Communist president in the U.S.

“President Vladimir Putin could never have imagined anyone so ignorant or so willing to destroy their people like Obama much less seeing millions vote for someone like Obama,” Lerma quips. But the American president wasn’t the only one to draw the author’s ire. He also noted the pervasive influence of the ACLU and the eroding of America’s Christianity — something that was, of course, also a key tenet of the Soviet Union:

The red, white and blue still flies happily but only in Russia. Russia still has St George defeating the Dragon with the symbol of the cross on its’ flag. The ACLU and other atheist groups in America would never allow the US flag with such religious symbols. Lawsuits a plenty against religious freedom and expression in the land of the free.

“Christianity in the U.S. is under attack as it was during the early period of the Soviet Union when religious symbols were against the law,” Lerma notes astutely.

In terms of all of the U.S. States that have filed petitions to secede from the union, Lerma coins these Americans” hostages to the Communists in power” who will eventually need to rise up in the face of “tyranny.” Lerma concludes with a powerful comparison of the suffering endured for nearly a century under the oppression and brutality of the USSR and quotes Don Mclean’s famed song, “American Pie”:

Russia lost its’ civil war with the Reds and millions suffered torture and death for almost 75 years under the tyranny of the United Soviet Socialist Republic. Russians survived with a new and stronger faith in God and ever growing Christian Church. The question is how long will the once “Land of the Free” remain the United Socialist States of America? Their suffering has only begun. Bye bye Miss American Pie!

Those who recall the days of the former Soviet Union, or who have friends and family members who fled a life of degradation, will see much truth in Lerma’s words. Even envisioning the now-famous “Hope” and “Change” campaign posters, which elevated Obama to a cult of personality, strikes fear and anxiety into the hearts of those who lived through eerily similar propaganda behind the iron curtain. It is ironic that this opinion column, so scathing of Communism and so keenly perceptive of how history is repeating itself in President Obama, comes to us from the publication that was formed to be the official Communist mouthpiece of the former Soviet Union itself.

Perhaps that is what lends it all the more weight.

Now should one be mindful of the fact that the author of this opinion column also considers Vladimir Putin a “conservative”? Yes, however, more disturbing still is that Lerma finds Putin conservative in comparison to Obama. Opinions on Putin vary greatly among those living in Russia in much the same way as Americans differ in opinion con President Obama. What’s more, Lerma’s personal views on Putin do not necessarily negate that there is merit to his observations on President Obama. Russians who have witnessed the trappings of the former Soviet Union either during its height or in its aftermath, tend to speak from a place of personal experience — something that warrants careful consideration. Based on our Google search of the author, he does appear to be a Russian columnist for Pravda who also maintains his own conservative-leaning blog.

Shortly after TheBlaze published this article citing Pravda’s opinion column, author David Frum posted a hair-trigger response on his Daily Beast Blog, accusing TheBlaze of agreeing with Pravda on President Obama. Frum disparages Lerma’s “journalistic” credentials and goes on to focus solely on Lerma’s opinions on Vladimir Putin, as well as the Pravda author’s reference to attacks on Christianity in America. Frum does not address any other points raised by Lerma concerning the cult of personality that has been build around Obama, nor the parallels Lerma sees between present-day America and the former Soviet Union. Frum also appears to miss the irony that was the true crux of this Blaze article: That the former official mouthpiece of the Communist Party believes Obama is a Communist and that Putin is Conservative by comparison. That, of course, was the point.

The most charitable way of explaining the election results of 2012 w/comment


I generally agree with the author ---but the decline of the U.S. empire did not begin in 2007----it began in the 1960's and 70's when we decided to prolong our "Moment in the Sun" fron 1945 to 1970 when we literally owned the production capacity of the world in our hands. We decided to prolong our honeymoon by borrowing from our future and Social Security trust fund. We raised a bunch of Dr. Spock pampered kids who knew nothing but good times---except for the new immigrants who discovered Uncle Sam's largesse trade for votes.

Fast forward to 2007 and we suddenly discoverd the "emperor has no clothes" and the piper had to be paid. Now we discover we are held hostage by a majority of people who indeed will not work or would rather get "free stuff" for not working.

One other thing that may not be correct. Romney's 47% statement includes all of us on Social Security and medicare. Many of us are retired conservatives and Republicans so the 47% becomes much less in numbers but much more important in actual numbers and the effect on the voting system.

We now are a mulit racist society. The blacks and hispanics are now aligned so tightly with the Dems they can not be pryed away. If you accept this then whites have no option but to vote their own interests and become racist as the blacks now define us. Then we will have not two parties but at least three, and maybe an Asian party. Congress will become multifactional and all hell will break loose in terms of coming to grips with the problems of the country until 2014.

Other that...all is not lost ... 2014 will show Conservatives controlling both houses & prosperity returning to US...SM1.


Posted on November 7, 2012


The most charitable way of explaining the election results of 2012 is
that Americans voted for the status quo – for the incumbent President,
and for a divided Congress. They must enjoy gridlock, partisanship,
incompetence, economic stagnation and avoidance of responsibility.
And, fewer people voted. As I write, with almost all the votes
counted, President Obama has won fewer votes than John McCain won in
2008, and more than ten million less than his own 2008 total.

But as we awake from this nightmare, it’s important to eschew the
facile explanations for the Romney defeat that will prevail among the
chattering classes. Romney did not lose because of the effects of
Hurricane Sandy that devastated this area, nor did he lose because he
ran a poor campaign, nor did he lose because the Republicans could
have chosen better candidates, nor did he lose because Obama benefited
from a slight uptick in the economy due to the business cycle.

Romney lost because he didn't get enough votes to win.

That might seem obvious, but not for the obvious reasons. Romney lost
because the conservative virtues – the traditional American virtues –
of liberty, hard work, free enterprise, private initiative and
aspirations to moral greatness – no longer inspire or animate a
majority of the electorate. The notion of the “Reagan Democrat” is one
cliché that should be permanently retired.

Ronald Reagan himself could not win an election in today’s America.

The simplest reason why Romney lost was because it is impossible to
compete against free stuff. Every businessman knows this; that is why
the “loss leader” or the giveaway is such a powerful marketing tool.
Obama’s America is one in which free stuff is given away wholesale:
the adults among the 47,000,000 on food stamps clearly recognized for
whom they should vote, and so they did, by the tens of millions; those
who – courtesy of Obama – receive two full years of unemployment
benefits (which, of course, both disincentives looking for work and
also motivates people to work off the books while collecting their
windfall) surely know for whom to vote; so too do those who anticipate
“free” health care, who expect the government to pay their mortgages,
and who look for the government to give them jobs. The lure of free
stuff is irresistible. In other words, Romney ran against Santa Claus;
and Santa won by a landslide.

Imagine two restaurants side by side. One sells its customers fine
cuisine at a reasonable price, and the other offers a free buffet,
all-you-can-eat as long as supplies last. Few – including me – could
resist the attraction of the free food. Now imagine that the second
restaurant stays in business because the first restaurant is forced to
provide it with the food for the free buffet, and we have the current
economy, until, at least, the first restaurant decides to go out of
business. (Then, the government takes over the provision of free food
to its patrons.)

The defining moment of the whole campaign was the revelation (by the
amoral Obama team) of the secretly-recorded video in which Romney
acknowledged the difficulty of winning an election in which “47% of
the people” start off against him because they pay no taxes and just
receive money – “free stuff” – from the government. Almost half of the
population has no skin in the game – they don’t care about high taxes,
promoting business, or creating jobs, nor do they care that the money
for their free stuff is being borrowed from their children and from
the Chinese. They just want the free stuff that comes their way at
someone else’s expense. In the end, that 47% leaves very little margin
for error for any Republican, and does not bode well for the future.

It is impossible to imagine a conservative candidate winning against
such overwhelming odds. People do vote their pocketbooks. In essence,
the people vote for a Congress who will not raise their taxes, and for
a President who will give them free stuff, never mind who has to pay
for it.

That suggests the second reason why Romney lost: the inescapable
conclusion that, as Winston Churchill stated so tartly, “the best
argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the
average voter.” Voters – a clear majority – are easily swayed by
emotion and raw populism. Said another way, too many people vote with
their hearts and not their heads. That is why Obama did not have to
produce a second term agenda, or even defend his first-term record. He
needed only to portray Mitt Romney as a rapacious capitalist who
throws elderly women over a cliff, when he is not just snatching away
their cancer medication, while starving the poor and cutting taxes for
the rich. Obama could get away with saying that “Romney wants the rich
to play by a different set of rules” – without ever defining what
those different rules were; with saying that the “rich should pay
their fair share” – without ever defining what a “fair share” is; with
saying that Romney wants the poor, elderly and sick to “fend for
themselves” – without even acknowledging that all these government
programs are going bankrupt, their current insolvency only papered
over by deficit spending. How could Obama get away with such rants to
squealing sign-wavers? See Churchill, above.

During his 1956 presidential campaign, a woman called out to Adlai
Stevenson: “Senator, you have the vote of every thinking person!”
Stevenson called back: “That’s not enough, madam, we need a majority!”
Truer words were never spoken.

Similarly, Obama (or his surrogates) could hint to blacks that a
Romney victory would lead them back into chains and proclaim to women
that their abortions and birth control would be taken away. He could
appeal to Hispanics that Romney would have them all arrested and
shipped to Mexico (even if they came from Cuba or Honduras), and
unabashedly state that he will not enforce the current immigration
laws. He could espouse the furtherance of the incestuous relationship
between governments and unions – in which politicians ply the unions
with public money, in exchange for which the unions provide the
politicians with votes, in exchange for which the politicians provide
more money and the unions provide more votes, etc., even though the
money is gone. How could he do and say all these things ? See
Churchill, above.

One might reasonably object that not every Obama supporter could be
unintelligent. But they must then rationally explain how the Obama
agenda can be paid for, aside from racking up multi-trillion dollar
deficits. “Taxing the rich” does not yield even 10% of what is
required and does not solve any discernible problem – so what is the
answer, i.e., an intelligent answer?

Obama also knows that the electorate has changed – that whites will
soon be a minority in America (they're already a minority in
California) and that the new immigrants to the US are primarily from
the Third World and do not share the traditional American values that
attracted immigrants in the 19th and 20th centuries. It is a different
world, and a different America. Obama is part of that different
America, knows it, and knows how to tap into it. That is why he won.

Obama also proved again that negative advertising works, invective
sells, and harsh personal attacks succeed. That Romney never engaged
in such diatribes points to his essential goodness as a person; his
“negative ads” were simple facts, never personal abuse – facts about
high unemployment, lower take-home pay, a loss of American power and
prestige abroad, a lack of leadership, etc. As a politician, though,
Romney failed because he did not embrace the devil’s bargain of making
unsustainable promises, and by talking as the adult and not the
adolescent. Obama has spent the last six years campaigning; even his
governance has been focused on payoffs to his favored interest groups.
The permanent campaign also won again, to the detriment of American
life.

It turned out that it was not possible for Romney and Ryan – people of
substance, depth and ideas – to compete with the shallow populism and
platitudes of their opponents. Obama mastered the politics of envy –
of class warfare – never reaching out to Americans as such but to
individual groups, and cobbling together a winning majority from these
minority groups. Conservative ideas failed to take root and states
that seemed winnable, and amenable to traditional American values,
have simply disappeared from the map. If an Obama could not be
defeated – with his record and his vision of America, in which free
stuff seduces voters – it is hard to envision any change in the
future. The road to Hillary Clinton in 2016 and to a
European-socialist economy – those very economies that are collapsing
today in Europe – was paved in this election.

A second cliché that should be retired is that America is a
center-right country. It clearly is not. It is a divided country with
peculiar voting patterns, and an appetite for free stuff. Studies will
invariably show that Republicans in Congress received more total votes
than Democrats in Congress, but that means little. The House of
Representatives is not truly representative of the country. That
people would vote for a Republican Congressmen or Senator and then
Obama for President would tend to reinforce point two above: the
empty-headedness of the electorate. Americans revile Congress but love
their individual Congressmen. Go figure.

The mass media’s complicity in Obama’s re-election cannot be denied.
One example suffices. In 2004, CBS News forged a letter in order to
imply that President Bush did not fulfill his Air National Guard
service during the Vietnam War, all to impugn Bush and impair his
re-election prospects. In 2012, President Obama insisted – famously –
during the second debate that he had stated all along that the Arab
attack on the US Consulate in Benghazi was “terror” (a lie that Romney
fumbled and failed to exploit). Yet, CBS News sat on a tape of an
interview with Obama in which Obama specifically avoided and rejected
the claim of terrorism – on the day after the attack – clinging to the
canard about the video. (This snippet of a “60 Minutes” interview was
not revealed - until two days ago!) In effect, CBS News fabricated
evidence in order to harm a Republican president, and suppressed
evidence in order to help a Democratic president. Simply shameful, as
was the media’s disregard of any scandal or story that could have
jeopardized the Obama re-election.

One of the more irritating aspects of this campaign was its limited
focus, odd in light of the billions of dollars spent. Only a few
states were contested, a strategy that Romney adopted, and that
clearly failed. The Democrat begins any race with a substantial
advantage. The liberal states – like the bankrupt California and
Illinois – and other states with large concentrations of minority
voters as well as an extensive welfare apparatus, like New York, New
Jersey and others – give any Democratic candidate an almost
insurmountable edge in electoral votes. In New Jersey, for example, it
literally does not pay for a conservative to vote. It is not worth the
fuel expended driving to the polls. As some economists have pointed
generally, and it resonates here even more, the odds are greater that
a voter will be killed in a traffic accident on his way to the polls
than that his vote will make a difference in the election. It is an
irrational act. That most states are uncompetitive means that people
are not amenable to new ideas, or new thinking, or even having an open
mind. If that does not change, and it is hard to see how it can
change, then the die is cast. America is not what it was, and will
never be again.

For Jews, mostly assimilated anyway and staunch Democrats, the results
demonstrate again that liberalism is their Torah. Almost 70% voted for
a president widely perceived by Israelis and most committed Jews as
hostile to Israel. They voted to secure Obama’s future at America’s
expense and at Israel’s expense – in effect, preferring Obama to
Netanyahu by a wide margin. A dangerous time is ahead. Under present
circumstances, it is inconceivable that the US will take any
aggressive action against Iran and will more likely thwart any Israeli
initiative. That Obama’s top aide Valerie Jarrett (i.e., Iranian-born
Valerie Jarrett) spent last week in Teheran is not a good sign. The US
will preach the importance of negotiations up until the production of
the first Iranian nuclear weapon – and then state that the world must
learn to live with this new reality. As Obama has committed himself to
abolishing America’s nuclear arsenal, it is more likely that that
unfortunate circumstance will occur than that he will succeed in
obstructing Iran’s plans.

Obama’s victory could weaken Netanyahu’s re-election prospects,
because Israelis live with an unreasonable – and somewhat pathetic –
fear of American opinion and realize that Obama despises Netanyahu. A
Likud defeat – or a diminution of its margin of victory – is more
probable now than yesterday. That would not be the worst thing.
Netanyahu, in fact, has never distinguished himself by having a strong
political or moral backbone, and would be the first to cave to the
American pressure to surrender more territory to the enemy and
acquiesce to a second (or third, if you count Jordan) Palestinian
state. A new US Secretary of State named John Kerry, for example (he
of the Jewish father) would not augur well. Netanyahu remains the best
of markedly poor alternatives. Thus, the likeliest outcome of the
upcoming Israeli elections is a center-left government that will force
itself to make more concessions and weaken Israel – an Oslo III.

But this election should be a wake-up call to Jews. There is no
permanent homeland, nor is there is an enduring haven for Jews
anywhere in the exile. The most powerful empires in history all
crumbled – from the Greeks and the Romans to the British and the
Soviets. None of the collapses were easily foreseen, and yet they were
predictable in retrospect.

The American dream began to decline in 2007, and the deterioration has
been exacerbated in the last five years. This election only hastens
that decline. Society is permeated with sloth, greed, envy and
materialistic excess. It has lost its moorings and its moral
foundations. The takers outnumber the givers, and that will only
increase in years to come. Across the world, America under Bush was
feared but not respected. Under Obama, America is neither feared nor
respected. Radical Islam has had a banner four years under Obama, and
its prospects for future growth look excellent. The “Occupy” riots
across this country in the last two years were mere dress rehearsals
for what lies ahead – years of unrest sparked by the increasing
discontent of the unsuccessful who want to seize the fruits and the
bounty of the successful, and do not appreciate the slow pace of
redistribution.

Two bright sides: Notwithstanding the election results, I arose this
morning, went to shul, davened and learned Torah afterwards. That is
our reality, and that trumps all other events. Our relationship with
God matters more than our relationship with any politician, Republican
or Democrat. And, notwithstanding the problems in Israel, it is time
for Jews to go home, to Israel. We have about a decade, perhaps 15
years, to leave with dignity and without stress. Thinking that it will
always be, because it always was, has been a repetitive and deadly
mistake. America was always the land from which “positive” aliya came
– Jews leaving on their own, and not fleeing a dire situation. But
that can also change. The increase daliya in the last few years is
partly attributable to young people fleeing the high cost of Jewish
living in America. Those costs will only increase in the coming years.
We should therefore draw the appropriate conclusions.

If this election proves one thing, it is that the Old America, as we
knew it, is gone. And, sad for the world, it is not coming back.
