From a teacher in the Nashville area
"We are worried about 'the cow' when it is all about the 'Ice Cream.'The most eye-opening civics lesson I ever had was while teaching 3rd grade. The last Presidential election was heating up and some of the children showed an interest.I decided we would have an election for a class president. We would choose our nominees. They would make a campaign speech and the class would vote. To simplify the process, candidates were nominated by other class members. We discussed what kinds of characteristics these students should have. We got many nominations and from those, Jamie and Olivia were picked to run for the top spot.
The class had done a great job in their selections. Both candidates were good kids.
I thought Jamie might have an advantage because he got lots of parental support.
I had never seen Olivia's mother.
The day arrived when they were to make their speeches.
Jamie went first.
He had specific ideas about how to make our class a better place.
He ended by promising to do his very best.
Everyone applauded and he sat down.
Now is was Olivia's turn to speak.
Her speech was concise. She said, "If you will vote for me, I will give you ice cream." She sat down.
The class went wild. "Yes! Yes! We want ice cream."
She surely would say more. She did not have to.
A discussion followed. How did she plan to pay for the ice cream? She wasn't sure. But no one pursued that question. They took her at her word.
Would her parents buy it or would the class pay for it...She didn't know.
The class really didn't care. All they were thinking about was ice cream...
Jamie was forgotten. Olivia won by a landslide.
Every time Barack Obama opened his mouth he offered ice cream and 51.4 % of the people reacted like nine year olds.
They want ice cream.
The other 48.6% percent know they're going to have to feed the cow and clean up the mess."

The Bushs collapsed it twice and Clinton had to fix it the first time and now Obama is having to fix it this time.

Do you know the difference between the Russian and American citizenry?
The Russians know they are getting bamboozled with Pravda and the Americans believe the corporate mainstream / corporate rightwing media "Hook Line and Sinker"!
You seem to be a Frank Luntz believer.
Svengali Luntz changed the wording from Estate Tax to Death Tax so people like yourself will endorse it.
It only applies to Millionaires and Billionaires.
MPs say Rupert Murdoch unfit to run company
May 2, 2012 / http://tinyurl.com/7lqquss
Rupert Murdoch is not fit to run a major international company, MPs said on Tuesday, finding him ultimately responsible for the illegal phone hacking that has corroded his global media empire and damaged the political establishment.
The MPs said the 81-year-old News Corp chief lacked credibility, his son James appeared incompetent and the company was guilty of "wilful blindness" towards its staff at the News of the World tabloid.
UK lawmakers: Rupert Murdoch unfit to lead company
May 1, 2012 / http://tinyurl.com/6q7gfjd
A committee of British lawmakers called Rupert Murdoch unfit to run his global media empire -- a finding that reflects just how deeply the phone hacking scandal born of his defunct News of the World has shaken the relationship between the press and politics.
The divisive ruling Tuesday against Murdoch, his son James and three of their executives also exposed the waning influence of the media tycoon, and could jeopardize his control of a major broadcaster.

You want us to get over Romney, but you continue to hold onto Bush????? We know who supposedly won the election but we are concerned for the future of our country with your man! This provides us the right to comment whenever we want on the issues before us.
Tell us how our guy is worse. What has Obama done in the past 4 years except put us further in debt? What happened to his promises of cutting the deficit in half, reducing unemployment to 6% or lower, and implementing immigration reform in his first term? How do you know our guy could not do better????? He has been successful at most everything he has done in his life. Why not let him have an opportunity? What experience did Obama have coming into the Presidency?????? Nada!!!!!

Did you know that had 'Food Insecurity' at least one time in the past year? Which means that they had to skip at least one meal, because they couldn't afford to eat? Did you know that a majority of families who rely on food banks is because they are working poor and cannot qualify for food stamps or SNAP?
They're not takers and leeches. They just don't make enough money to live, but to you that is their own fault, huh?
Did you know that POOR Hostess Co also went bankrupt in 2004?
Did you know the only reason they are attempting to do it now is so they can get out of paying the workers their pensions and will stick that cost on US Taxpayers, just like Bain Capital does and did in the past?
Think about that.

Great Post !!!! There was no economic collapse in 2008. The 726,000 per month out of work was because they all just quit their jobs. The stock market only lost 40% of it's value due to a glitch in the system. Keep up the Repubs good work. 2016 will be here in no time. Stay the course!!!!!!

From a Russian newspaper
The Reason Obama is President
By Xavier Lerma
The reason America has the trillion dollar war monger Obama as president today is because of immorality and materialism in America. President John Adams once said,
"Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other." -October 11, 1798.
"It is impossible to rightly govern the world without God and Bible" - George Washington.
Thomas Jefferson wrote: "God who gave us life gave us liberty. And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are a gift from God? That they are not to be violated but with His wrath? Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just, and that His justice cannot sleep forever."
The revisionist historians have tried to "cover up" God himself by not allowing recent generations to know that America was once a nation of religious people. Now, over half the people in America are not well informed and are willing to believe the spoon fed propaganda from the Democrats and Republicans.
Those who will not be governed by God will be ruled by tyrants." -William Penn (American hero of Liberty and religious freedom).
They want you to depend on the government instead of God. Welcome to the USSA
Therefore, only prayer and penance will lead America once again to that guiding light that governed the founding Fathers. Prayers can turn the tide of evil in the US and its chaotic effect in the world. May God bless America. Until then, only President Vladimir Putin can prevent America's military Democracy from destroying the world.

America is NOT, was NOT, and NEVER has been a Christian Nation!
To state otherwise is childish foolishness.

A tattoo on an old mans arm...# 55374.
little girl..."I gotta tell you mister....... that's an awfully boring tattoo on your arm.It's just a bunch of numbers!"
Old man......"well I was just about your age when I got it and kept it as a reminder".
Little girl...."Oh, a reminder of happier days"?
Old man...."No, of a time when the world went mad."
Imagine your self in a land where your countrymen followed the voice of political extremists who didn't like your religion. Imagine having everything taken away from you,your entire family sent to a concentration camp as slave labors, then systematically murdered. In this place ,they even take your name and replace it with a number tattooed on your arm.
"It was called the HOLOCAUST,when millions of people perished just because of their faith."
Little girl... imagining herself in such a place with barbed wire all around keeping her and her family prisoner.
She draws her knees up under her chin and wraps her arms around them and starts to weep.
Finely she says.... "so you keep it as a reminder of political extremist?"
And the old man says " No dear, to remind you......"

Have any of you read the article on Drudge about Democrat's redeploying Obama's voter database? You might want to read that article in it's entirety. It's interesting to say the least.
Like I said awhile back, I knew they had the ability to & was compiling info on all of us. I'm amazed their speaking about it as they are though. According to this article the Dem's have been mining data now for 4 years or longer!
It says if you voted, then the Dem's have a file on YOU. A vast database that includes info on how you vote, your car registration, value of your house, hunting license, magazine subscriptions, you name it, they have that info. Even have a score estimating how likely you are to vote & how you feel about certain issues. It even said if you like cats, that info is included as well. Amazing!
Oh, and they are "expanding" these databases!
Where it gets really personal, is through all of our contacts via our computers & phones. If you used a Facebook app, your file was updated & included lists of your FB friends, & they measured the intensity of your relationships, also gained access to all your friends info through you. Of course all the pics too for your file. They used data mining to get detailed analyst of cable tv viewing habits & web traffic. If a person name even sounded Hispanic, it recorded that too.
Michael Slaby, of the O campaign, said the most important aspect was what he called "Micro- Listening". It is also called micro-targeting.
What made it easier for them is that Jim Messina's mentor is Google executive Eric Schmidt, who was a regular at the Chicago camp headquarters, where folks say it resembled an Internet start up company.
An ACLU analyst said voters should worry that politicians & data brokers have aligned making legal restrictions of data less likely. Hmmm, interesting.
Voters probably didn't understand how serious this is. There's a danger of hackers stealing data, but ya know, we all get warned when we use web sites like FB & others.
If you've used FB your file has been updated.
The deal now is that even though election is over.....The Obama database is "Just getting Started" according to this article.
Be aware that anything &n everything has no concept of privacy anymore. Those days are long gone. Forever, I'm sad to say.
