During his golfing vacation at Martha's Vineyard - President Obama
had been slicing off the tee on every hole.
He asked his Scottish caddy if he had noticed any obvious reasons
for his poor tee shots, to which the caddy replied:
"Aye, there's a piece of shyt on the end of yer driver. "
The President picked up his driver and cleaned the club face, at
which point the caddy said:
"No, the other end

TERRIFIC WAY OF THINKING!!!!!!
AFTER FLIGHT 77 HIT THE PENTAGON ON 9/11, THE FOLLOWING HAPPENED
A chaplain, who happened to be assigned to the Pentagon, told of an
incident that happened right after Flight 77 hit the Pentagon on 9/11.A daycare facility inside the Pentagon had many children, including
infants who were in heavy cribs. The daycare supervisor, looking at
all the children they needed to evacuate, was in a panic over what
they could do.There were many children, mostly toddlers, as well as the infants that
would need to be taken out with the cribs. There was no time to try to
bundle them into carriers and strollers.Just then a young Marine came running into the center and asked what
they needed. After hearing what the center director was trying to do,
he ran back out into the hallway and disappeared. The director
thought, "Well, here we are, on our own."About 2 minutes later, that Marine returned with 40 other Marines in
tow. Each of them grabbed a crib with a child, and the rest started
gathering up toddlers.The director and her staff then helped them take all the children out
of the center and down toward the park near the Potomac.Once they got about 3/4 of a mile outside the building, the Marines
stopped in the park, and then did a fabulous thing - they formed a
circle with the cribs, which were quite sturdy and heavy, like the
covered wagons in the Old West.Inside this circle of cribs, they put the toddlers, to keep them from
wandering off. Outside this circle were the 40 Marines, forming a
perimeter around the children and waiting for instructions. There they
remained until the parents could be notified and come get their
children.The chaplain then said, "I don't think any of us saw nor heard of this
on any of the news stories of the day. It was an incredible story of
our men there.” There wasn't a dry eye in the room.The thought of those Marines and what they did and how fast they
reacted; could we expect any less from them? It was one of the most
touching stories from the Pentagon.It's the Military, not the politicians that ensure our right to life,
liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. It's the Military who salutes
the flag, who serves beneath the flag, and whose coffin is draped by
the flag.If you care to offer the smallest token of recognition and
appreciation for the military, please pass this on and pray for our
men and women, who have served and are currently serving our country,
and pray for those who have given the ultimate sacrifice for freedom."GOD BLESS AMERICA"

Around this time each year, Melissa Bunker of Star, North Carolina (AKA, “The Persimmon Lady”), sends us her winter prediction based on opening up some persimmon seeds. Traditional lore is that if the seeds are shaped like forks, winter will be mild; if they are shaped like spoons, there will be a lot of snow; and if they are shaped like knives, winter will be bitingly cold.Here’s what Melissa had to say:Here is the 2014/15 persimmon readout. Never have seen all spoons before!!! Tell the readers to prep for lots of snow

News Release: DEO, FDACS, FWC announce investment of $4.5 million to enlist oyster fishermen in continuing efforts to restore the Apalachicola oyster fishery
This week we announced that GE Oil & Gas will be opening a new advanced manufacturing facility in Jacksonville. This project will create at least 500 new jobs over the next three years, which is great news for Jacksonville families.
Because we eliminated the sales tax on manufacturing equipment, more companies like GE Oil & Gas are choosing Florida to grow their businesses. Our business-friendly policies are working and more than 640,000 private-sector jobs have been created since December 2010. Let’s keep working to grow businesses in our state and create an opportunity economy for generations to come.

Leonardo DiCaprio flew to New York on his private jet to address the corrupt world leaders during during the Climate Summit at the United Nations. Standing in the very spot where the President of the United States delivered his address, DiCaprio was introduced to the general assembly as a “Messenger of Peace.”
“We need to put a price tag on carbon emissions and eliminate government subsidies for oil, coal and gas companies,” said DiCaprio, whose message appears to be more a product of Hollywood script doctors rather than someone who was actually knowledgeable about the science and economics of climate change.
Court Jesters …
Since when did we fete and listen to the court jesters whose job is to read the words written by others and delivered with a feigned sincereity that marks the actor’s craft?
The hypocrisy of this goof reminds me of a scene where DiCaprio pulls up in a Prius and gets on a private jet! Did anyone else note that it appears that DiCaprio attended the World Cup events and stayed on a Saudi-owned yacht.
Of course, the Arabs have every reason to fear “fracking” – reducing the world’s dependence on Arab oil while promoting American energy independence. Perhaps why Arab money is flowing into Hollywood to finance anti-fracking and other environmental film projects.
Bottom line …
Using celebrities to raise awareness and funding is a common practice among charities and special interests. Unfortunately, many apathetic Americans confuse and conflate celebrity with superior knowledge – unmindful of the scripted nature of their performance, the special effects that make them seem super-human – and confuse their carefully crafted characters and personas with the star’s personal reality.
Most celebrities are narcissistic, self-absorbed, and insecure shells that do one thing really well – act as if they were someone else. In real life, they are surrounded by a team whose continuing income depends on the celebrity’s relationship with their audience. These people tell the celebrity of their own greatness and ignore any demons – such as drug use – to keep the money flowing. A similar scenario, but on a smaller and muted scale, affects politicians. Many of whom are charismatic and star-like when they read the TelePrompTered words of others with sincerity and emotion.
Which brings us to the scariest thing know by all celebrities … they know that a star is a star as long as there isn’t a bigger star in the room.
It is time we stop listening to the clowns and court jesters – to seriously consider the work of serious men and women who actually know what they are talking about and have no need of a TelePrompTer.
P.S. Purchasing carbon offset credits from one of Al Gore’s affiliates is not an acceptable answer to those who point out hypocrisy.

Obama’s Kabuki Theatre …
Obama has been sold to America as a brilliant, articulate man whose expertise includes constitutional law and a working knowledge of Islam. Unfortunately, what we have seen is a jumped-up telegenic community organizer who can deliver a TelePrompTer speech with the stagecraft and faux insincerity of the world’s best actors.
Pretty much why the President’s speech at the United Nations is troubling.
Excerpts from Obama’s United Nations speech … [my comments in blue italics]
Bottom line …
What can I say? Obama’s disingenuous, dishonest, and disappointing speech -- just another indication that ordinary American’s were swayed with the sizzle and found out there was no steak. I am embarrassed that this man leads our nation and is in charge of our military. Without a doubt, Obama is the worst president of the modern era, far surpassing Jimmy Carter in the damage done to our country.
In the final analysis, Obama is committing our military assets to act as the surrogate Iranian Air Force – fighting Iran’s Sunni enemy – ISIS and providing aid and comfort to our enemies.
