Not So Grand Bargain

Over the years, I've noticed one thing; it seems to always happen, too! Compromise, between the liberals and the conservatives always seems to demand change...BY THE CONSERVATIVES! No plan will be hashed out unless the conservatives make the changes. Therein lies the destructive force in American governemtn..Both the liberals' refusal to make any changes and the conservative's wimpiness - they always back down, leaving the righteous Americans with a bad deal.
I am so tired of the Politically Correct crowd and their assault on my First Amendment rights. When I was a sixth grade student at the Georgia School for the Deaf, "hearing impaired" meant a person, who couldn't hear and could neither sign nor get along, using speech. Then the political correct crowd stepped in, demanding the word DEAF is taboo and telling me I shouldn't use it. They can go where no sun will ever shine!!
The history is that both the Atlanta Braves and the Washington Redskins were, at one time, Boston Braves and, looking back to the 1995 World Series - between the Braves and the Cleveland Indians, I believe that is when the Native Americans began griping over the use of their likenesses in sporting arenas. What's next on the agenda? Will those, who still rob merchants - at sea - come, demanding the use of Pirates and Buccaneers come out of hiding to demand that the Pittsburgh and Tampa Bay teams are hurting their businesses? And, all we need is the pet lovers picketing because of the use of bulldogs, tigers, lions, If it were me, I'd feel honored to have my people's group so honored.

Time to Scrap Labor Day for 9/11 Day

This is a good idea. However, this holiday goal will have to be signed by a future president. You'll never get Obama to sign it into law, though, as it was his Muslim buddies, who caused the 9/11 deaths.
Let's hope the RINOs, in Congress will finally finally locate something, inside their scrotums, and do the right thing. I also hope this will not be dragged out the way Clinton's impeachment was and that more democrats will see the sleazy nature of this buffoonish president and throw him in jail!
Actually, it sounds like he is, knowingly, wasting our money!
Actually, it sounds like he is, knowingly, wasting our money!
Nobody will, honestly, be able to remember Reagan, the Bushes, Carter, Ford, Nixon (or any other president) doing this...Why? Because this is an extravagance none of them thought their high and mighty perch provided for. Obama and Obama, alone, is the only one, who thinks he has a right to blow American taxpayer money, at whim!
You're right, pow1000. When Obama told Rick Warren he was a lifelong Christian, I knew he was lying. Someone, online, demanded he was and, withing a few months, he told a Muslim cleric in France that he was a lifelong Muslim. Moochelle loves America for one and only one thing: ALL SHE CAN GET! She is as egocentric (i.e. - self-serving) as they come! If America can hold on for just another 41 months, I'm sure her "...proud to be an American..." lie will change to the truth, as they move into whatever palace some rogue Muslim nation provides!
I have debated these points, with a staunch Obama supporter (a Jewish lady, nonetheless), for the past 3 1/2 years. Can you imagine: Because ABCNews didn't report it, Obama never suggested splitting Jerusalem? Can you imagine: Because ABCNews didn't report it, Obama didn't explode the U.S. National Debt. I've about had it with being called prejudiced because I can see through the facade that is Barrack Obama. I've about had it with being told I am too Right Winged (I responded by offering that the opposite of Right is WRONG!!) and, even moreso, I've HAD IT, WITH BARRACK OBAMA AND HIS STUPIDITY!
When you mention deadbeat dads and absentee fathers, I am proud to report my dad was neither of these. You see, in 1969, when my parents divorced, McGaw Laboratories transferred him from Milledgeville, GA, to Glendale, CA, where he worked for the next 2 1/2 years. In March, 1971, I was stricken with Meningitis, which left me totally Deaf and in need of special education (you'll have to excuse me but I don't agree with the money-saving venture of placing Deaf kids in hearing schools and demanding we need nothing more -- in the late '70's, they said we needed only to lipread (that's impossible, when you consider that if you're speaking to a Deaf person, you attempt to help that person understand you. So, when a teacher is speaking to a classroom, filled with hearing kids, the lone Deaf student will understand little or nothing.) So, at the beginning of my Senior year, Dad contacted the school, requesting an interpreter for me....That's still not the best situation but it was a step up from the past. Two or three years ago, my sister, who is now 54, was stricken with heart problems and had to go to the Mayo Clinic. Because she didn't have the money for the trip, Dad provided it - he had succeeded in the real estate business and makes sure his - now grown, mind you - kids are taken care of, when he can. So, like I said, I am so blessed to have the dad I have...When I worked in an office, where we had upwards of 1,000,000,000 files of non-custodial parents, who didn't pay child support, I started to talk to him about it and Dad didn't want to because it hurts him that this nation has a problem, with deadbeat parents!
