I'm Hopeful that the NEXT SOTU Address will sound like this

Reaction to the President’s State of the Union speech has been as predictable as the speech itself, split along the usual partisan lines. But Obama’s next one, to be given after the 2012 election, figures to be a game-changer, and here’s an exclusive early look at what it will include:

“Good evening. And a special welcome to the many outgoing Democrat congressmen and senators. I know you blame me for the staggering losses our party suffered in the last election. The good news is, you and I have pensions for life. Incidentally, that’s almost as long as the new, long-term unemployment extension we passed during the lame duck session. The bad news is, we’ll have to borrow the money to pay for those programs from Uruguay.

I want to thank each and every American who voted for me, especially the record numbers who did so posthumously. I only wish you had voted more often.

I want to take a moment to look back on our achievements. We passed a national health care program. I know the Supreme Court struck it down as unconstitutional last summer, but remember, the law was on the books almost long enough for an average American to read the entire 1300-pages of that law.

I stopped the Keystone pipeline, hobbled the domestic energy industry, and made worldwide oil reserves available to the Chinese. I think we can all see the results in reduced traffic at the drive-through and increased sales of bicycles and skateboards. I know a gallon of unleaded will now set you back twelve bucks, but the good news is, you can now pay for that gas with food stamps.

The size of our military is now one tenth what is was when I took office, and we are engaged in no foreign wars. Sure, Taiwan, the Philippines, and Maui are now colonies of the People’s Republic of China. Yes, Mexican drug cartels have surrounded the Alamo. And, admittedly, the number of rogue states with nuclear weapons has grown exponentially to include Iran, Venezuela, Cuba, Luxembourg and Solyndra..

But we’re not economizing on our security. I have doubled the number of TSA airport security officers, and authorized them to conduct strip searches on anyone who even drives past the airport.

Thanks to bailouts and takeovers during my administration, the government now owns 45% of private businesses in this nation. We have had a 98% success rate in running those businesses into the ground. By the way, I don’t agree with critics who say that including permanent Obama 2012 bumper stickers on all new GM cars was responsible for that auto company’s plummeting sales.

The best news is that this nation, struggling with unsustainable debt, massive unemployment, declining international prestige and influence, and worthless currency is not my problem anymore. Since the election, the Republicans are in charge, so we can go back to blaming them.”

(It is not customary for the outgoing President to deliver a State of the Union address. Therefore, Mr. Obama will deliver his remarks on the ABC program “The View” immediately following the Harry Reid aerobics segment and the Nancy Pelosi cooking demonstration.)


When an old man died in the geriatric ward of a nursing home in... North Platte , Nebraska , it was believed that he had nothing left of any value

Later, when the nurses were going through his meager possessions, They found this poem . Its quality and content so impressed the staff that copies were made and distributed to every nurse in the hospital

One nurse took her copy to Missouri . The old man's sole bequest to posterity has since appeared in the Christmas edition of the News Magazine of the St. Louis Association for Mental Health.. A slide presentation has also been made based on his simple, but eloquent, poem.

And this little old man, with nothing left to give to the world, is now the author of this 'anonymous' poem winging across the Internet.

Crabby Old Man

What do you see nurses? . . What do you see?
What are you thinking . . . . . when you're looking at me?
A crabby old man, . ... .. not very wise,
Uncertain of habit .. . .. . . . . . with faraway eyes?

Who dribbles his food . . .. . . . . and makes no reply .
When you say in a loud voice .. . . . .. 'I do wish you'd try!'
Who seems not to notice . ... . the things that you do .
And forever is losing . . . . .. . . . . . A sock or shoe?

Who, resisting or not . . . . . . .. . . lets you do as you will,
With bathing and feeding The long day to fill?
Is that what you're thinking? Is that what you see?
Then open your eyes, nurse . . . . . you're not looking at me .

I'll tell you who I am . As I sit here so still,
As I do at your bidding, . . . . . . as I eat at your will.
I'm a small child of Ten ... . . . . . with a father and mother,
Brothers and sisters . . . ... . . . . . who love one another.

A young boy of Sixteen . . with wings on his feet
Dreaming that soon now . . . .. .. . . a lover he'll meet..
A groom soon at Twenty . my heart gives a leap.
Remembering, the vows . . . . .. . that I promised to keep.

At Twenty-Five, now . . . . . . . . I have young of my own.
Who need me to guide . . . . And a secure happy home.
A man of Thirty . . . . .. . . . .. My young now grown fast,
Bound to each other . . . . . . . With ties that should last.

At Forty, my young sons .. . have grown and are gone,
But my woman's beside me . . . . . . . to see I don't mourn.
At Fifty, once more, babies play 'round my knee,
Again, we know children . . . . . . . My loved one and me.

Dark days are upon me . . my wife is now dead.
I look at the future ... . .. . . . . . . shudder with dread..
For my young are all rearing . . . . . .. young of their own.
And I think of the years . . .. and the love that I've known.

I'm now an old man . . . . . .. .. . . and nature is cruel.
Tis jest to make old age . . . . look like a fool.
The body, it crumbles .. . . . . . . grace and vigor, depart..
There is now a stone . . . .. . . . where I once had a heart.

But inside this old carcass . . a young guy still dwells,
And now and again . . . .. . . . my battered heart swells.
I remember the joys . . . . . . . . .. I remember the pain.
And I'm loving and living . . . . . .. . . . . life over again.

I think of the years, all too few . . . . . gone too fast.
And accept the stark fact . . . . . .. that nothing can last.
So open your eyes, people . . . . . . . . open and see.
Not a crabby old man. Look closer . . . see ME!!

Remember this poem when you next meet an older person who you might brush aside without looking at the young soul within . . . . we will all, one day, be there, too!

Obama's Green Robber Barons

Had enough of fat cat Barack Obama, his jet-setting wife and his multi-millionaire Chicago consigliere/real-estate mogul Valerie Jarrett attacking the "rich"? Well, brace yourselves. You'll be hearing much more from the White House about the "wealthy few" who aren't paying their "fair share" as Obama's re-election campaign doubles down on class-war demagoguery.

As usual, there's always a set of immunity charms for the privileged friends and family of the ruling class. When it comes to all the Green Robber Barons who've reaped an obscenely unfair share of billions of tax dollars from the Obama administration, the envy trumpeteers will be quieter than a nest of mute church mice.

Obama's State of the Union address defiantly pitched a new round of clean energy spending orgies to help the "middle class." But how have the serial bankruptcies and near-bankruptcies of several federally subsidized solar companies -- all under Obama's watch -- helped anyone but an upper-crust elite of eco-crats and their lobbyists and consultants?

This IS the REAL truth

Secret Blog

This is why I do not allow liberals, socialists, communists, democrats, and Muslims to come on this wall and argue against the FACTS I post here.

This is a home, a comfy hang out for conservative patriots, not a debate forum for people who are incapable of comprehending fact based information.

Attempting to reason with the aforementioned groups is useless and a waste of time.

A REAL interview with Barack Obama...the one I wish we could have conducted

5 tech predictions from 1968 that were dead-on (and 5 that were completely nuts) | DVICE

40 years ago, science fiction writer James R. Berry predicted what the future would look like on November 18th, 2008 — today. His piece for a 1968 issue of Mechanix Illustrated, "40 Years in the Future," made some impressive guesses, from flat-screen televisions to video conferencing. He also made a few understandable missteps: pollution-free air in cities, house paint that's always pristine, and — pardon me, ladies — the idea that women would still do little more than use a computer to plan recipes.

5 tech predictions from 1968 that were dead-on (and 5 that were completely nuts) | DVICE

If The U.S. Government Keeps Spending Money Like This We Are Doomed And If The U.S. Government Stops Spending Money Like This We Are Doomed

If you increased your credit card spending by a couple thousand dollars per month would your lifestyle improve? Of course it would. By going into large amounts of debt, it is possible to live a lifestyle that you can't really afford, at least for a while. But if you keep racking up huge amounts of credit card debt every single month, eventually it gets to a point where it is extremely difficult to even keep up with the minimum monthly payments and the credit card companies will not lend you any more money. Well, on a larger scale it is the same thing with government debt. Right now, the U.S. government is spending more than a trillion dollars more than it takes in every year. Even if the U.S. government spends all of that money on incredibly stupid stuff, it still gets into the pockets of ordinary Americans. In turn, those ordinary Americans use that money to pay the mortgage, buy food, shop at the mall, etc. All of this borrowing and spending by the U.S. government has created a "false prosperity" bubble that is not real. It may feel real to you right now, but it is unsustainable by definition. If the U.S. government suddenly started spending only the money that it actually brought in every year, our economy would be doomed and all of this "false prosperity" would rapidly disappear. But if the U.S. government continues to rack up debt at this pace we are doomed as well. In fact, every dollar that gets borrowed makes our eventual collapse ever worse. We are heading down the exact same road that Greece has gone. Eventually the rest of the world is not going to lend us gigantic mountains of super cheap money anymore. When the flow of cheap money stops, it can be extremely painful.

If The U.S. Government Keeps Spending Money Like This We Are Doomed And If The U.S. Government Stops Spending Money Like This We Are Doomed

The state of the Union is HORRIBLE...but Obama's not to Blame

A comment on this editorial:
We have one last opportunity to rid ourselves of the Progressive parasites who plan America's demise.

We can avoid "1984" and/or "Road Warrior" scenarios, if we are willing to WAKE UP and smell the Socialism.

By Socialism, I mean Tyranny. Redistribution efforts are destined to fail, as they weaken our moral fiber by disincentivizing hard work and innovation; by the recipients of borrowed largess, as well as the providers.

But the "UN"intended consequences of 100 years of Progressive sabotage are EXACTLY what they meant to accomplish.

POWER. Raw, unadulterated power in the hands of the anointed few, over everyone else.

Mr. Curl has one point that should not be taken as tongue-in-cheek. O may be at fault, but WE are to blame.

We must not allow ourselves to be seduced by bread, circuses and apathy, to be bought by desperately needed government grants, to be goaded into precipitate anger and violence, to be convinced by con-man politicos who despise the fiscally conservative Constitutional concepts they claim to conform to.

We must join together, rise and FIGHT for liberty, as our forbears did, or it will perish from the Earth.

I would rather see a limited period of suffering and sacrifice in order to restore Constitutional government and prosperity than generations of slavery in a world that no longer knows freedom.

I would rather die as an old man in a free and prosperous America, but

I would die on my feet, for I will NOT live on my knees!

The president’s campaign team thinks up shiny new slogans for Obama’s 2012 re-election

During the 2008 presidential election, Barack Obama glided to victory promising not only “hope” but also “change.” His campaign also came up with a carefully crafted slogan: “Yes We Can.”

As the president’s campaign team thinks up shiny new slogans for Obama’s 2012 re-election effort, The Daily Caller decided to help them out by coming up with ten very bad options that should be scrapped immediately.

10.) No we couldn’t, but maybe if you gave us four more years we can? Vote Obama 2012.

9.) There is only so low we can go before we bottom out. Vote Obama 2012.

8.) I still have so many speeches left to give. Vote Obama 2012.

7.) We’re not better off than we were 4 years ago, but we are better than we were 400 years ago! Vote Obama 2012.

6.) Goodbye 18-hole Sundays, hello 9-hole Saturdays. Vote Obama 2012.

5.) Give Carter the second term he never had. Vote Obama 2012.

4.) Four words: Attorney General John Edwards. Vote Obama 2012.

3.) Ain’t no party like an Obama inauguration party and you won’t get one if you don’t vote for me. Vote Obama 2012.

2.) Two words: More Biden. Vote Obama 2012.

1.) 9/11 was an inside job. Vote Obama 2012.

I wish people understood economics well enough to grasp this. It's why we should NOT have bailed out the banks, the car companies, the unions and state governments. Why we should not have had a stimulus program. Why Obama's Jobs plans are all wrong. Why the green energy stuff was a farce. IF we had just allowed the market to operate, we would be well today. Now Obama's QE-3 will only make things worse. Makes me sad to think of how hard the fall will be when it comes.

I disagree with this. I have degrees or significant course work in three of the top 5 and I have done very well thank you.
If you're thinking of going back to school, you might want to avoid these degrees.
Clinton and John Edwards. Remember them? I only have ONE question. IF we as Republicans are seriously thinking about the Newtster... HOW ABOUT HERMAN CAIN? I want him back. Yeah, he had hot pants too....seems like it runs in Presidential Types (not Bush 2 or Obama; I'm not sure about Obama, we don't actually know a thing about his personal life, but I have a sense that if he messed around on Michelle, he'd already be dead). Bring back that 9-9-9 guy. I liked him.

I agree with Allen West...why isn't HE running for President??

The day after President Obama was elected President, I made this same appraisal of the man. You can go back on the Northern Gleaner blog and read it. I was right and so were many others that watched his election in dismay.
Now we know. After three years in office and the launching of his second election campaign, we have experienced President Obama's leadership. We can see whom we elected president -- the mystery man of 2008 revealed.
I think we should just say, I'll tear up yours, you tear up mine.

I sat in sorrow watching absolute futility as the Hour of Power played on TV tonight. Crystal Cathedral. Every senior minister who carries a mighty anointing should be required to watch this. We might have fewer of these family feuds and family business churches that die a slow in full view of God and everyone. It's so sad, tragic really. Believing that your son or daughter will pick up the mantle without first paying the same price you did to become what God destined you to be is not your decision, only God anoints and appoints.
