Over these last two to three weeks an awakening has begun to take place among the free lunch bunch, or as I prefer, the idle, and/or, the (self-indulgent), who feed from the labor and pockets of others.
With a new Supreme Court rulings setting aside (affirmative action) in a few of America’s colleges and universities, it is my hope that America is back on a path to equality.
Deidra from Morgantown, (The Difference between working and Scheming).
Even if you don’t think so, President Obama and the people who work for him in Congress to help him provide for those who can’t provide for themselves are working every minute of every day. If someone attacks America at 3 o’clock in the morning, President Obama has to answer the phone.
So it should never count against him if he likes to play golf once in a while.
Hello Deidra, thank you for visiting my site and thank you for leaving a comment. With that said, I have just one question for you; “what planet do you live on?”
Obama has gutted the US economy – he has gutted the US military – he has gutted the middle class – and he has gutted the healthcare policies of more than 6 million people – how is this helping America?
This isn’t my first rodeo.
This kind of retardation has to be taught, as there is no way in hell, or on earth that God would inflict anyone with such a cross to bear.
Randall from Butterfield, (Readers Forum – Faith).
As a newbie in the field of surfing the net, I was ready to give up my search for something worthwhile when I came across your site.
I voted for Barack Obama in 2008 because liberalism was heavy at the university I was attending. I have since learned the error of marching to a drum that beats for socialism.
I’m married now and have a toddler to raise, so keep beating your drum and beat it loud, because Americans needs better jobs and real equality.
Obama is an elitist ideologue leading America into fascism and communism, hope and change are great tags for selling snake oil. Nevertheless, hope and change don’t do much for promoting equality and democracy.
Hello Randall, thank you for visiting my site and thank you for your comments and your narrative.
Barack Obama has indeed cast a dark cloud over America, albeit as clouds are formed from nothing more than vapor – I personally see no lasting effect from any of his follies.
The folks that we, the collective we, in America have to fear, are the moneylenders, and/or, the Rothschilds.
The Ides of March are upon America.
Emily from Fort Smith, (Conservatism).
Of course people like you who were probably born with a silver spoon in his mouth would think conservatism is a good thing.
But how about the rest of us, people that weren’t born with a silver spoon in their mouth. Folks that get up in the morning wondering if there will be enough slices left in a week old loaf of bread to make sandwiches for their children’s lunch.
Hello Emily, thank you for visiting my site and thank you for your comments. From your narrative I would judge that you haven’t been reading my blog for more than a very short time.
I was born December 26, 1941, three weeks later my father was wearing combat boots and didn’t get back by the house for more than a year.
For the record, the spoon in my mouth was a soup spoon.
During the years between 1942 and 1945 I don’t remember eating much of anything other than potato soup and/or lima beans and ham, (without) the ham.
At age seven in 1948, I bought a used J.C. Higgins single shot .22 rifle for five dollars, – money I earned from pulling weeds and raking leaves for neighbors.
In 1948 the State of California paid a “ten cent” bounty for crows, – a box of .22 caliber long rifle bullets at the time cost thirteen cents – if my aim was true, – a new box of bullets would bring me five dollars – or (four dollars for my pocket) and ten rabbits for our dinner table.
Capitalism works for everyone – entitlements, and/or, welfare only works for those who learn not to work.
So Emily, get your head out of your butt and join the human race – we’re really a pretty great bunch of people.
Geoff from Charleston, (Conservatism).
No thanks, if I have to become an animal or a monster like the Koch brothers, I’ll stick with my friends and get by with less. Your friend Tom sounds like he knows what he’s talking about, maybe you should listen more to him and less to your friend Kenny.
The video you provided, although well produced, is nothing more than a collection of misinformation and outright lies.
Your friend Kenny should be ashamed of himself and so should you. Our founding fathers didn’t write the Constitution so that greedy people could become rich.
They wrote the Constitution so that everyone would have an equal opportunity to have a good life. Tell me I’m wrong.
Hello Geoff, thank you for visiting my site and thank you for your comments and your ideology. Now with that said; …
Not only were every one of “our” founding fathers that took part in writing “our” Constitution gainfully employed – they all advocated for personal responsibility – self-reliance – and capitalism.
The Constitution, by act of Congress, advocates that all men are created equal and that all citizen of the United States are guaranteed an equal opportunity in their pursuit of life liberty and happiness.
Nowhere in the Constitution did our founding fathers promise a citizen more than an opportunity to (work) for a piece of the pie.
According to Webster: “op·por·tu·ni·ty,”(in context) A chance for progress or advancement.
Derek from Whitehaven, UK, (Conservatism).
I not only find it amusing, but quite appropriate and satisfying to find you Yanks within a “Dragon’s breath” of being back to where you began.
Hello Derek, thank you for visiting my site and thank you for your comment. With that said; …
I find your sniveling quite amusing, appropriate, albeit quite unsatisfying – but then, we’re not the ones who got our butts kicked.
Reprisals are so unattractive, even if you are the one “Brit” that didn’t get a job reading a Teleprompter in America…
Beverly from Sweetwater, (Affirmative Action, and/or).
I got your web address from my brother who lives in between Fort Worth and Arlington, and so far I’ve passed it on to nine friends who all hate Obama and liberals more than chicory.
Your number one fan in Texas, Bev.
Hello Beverly, thank you for visiting my site and thank you for your comment, ..and your accolades!
If there’s one thing old people past their prime love more than anything, ..it’s accolades – the more the better!
Although it’s been a while – like back in the day when I was an adventurous young man, I negotiated Interstate 20 more than a few times crossing this nation with a load of freight.
I’ve had many a lunch, breakfast and dinner in Sweetwater, so I am well aware that the water in Sweetwater is anything but Sweetwater, …
..unless of course, one actually enjoys sucking on matches.
Melvin from Sacramento, (Affirmative Action, and/or)
I don’t consider myself a conservative or liberal, I agree with more that you write than I disagree with. Nevertheless when it comes to fair treatment in our educational system I believe the Supreme Court was irresponsible in their decision to set aside affirmative action for Michigan. Minority students are going to be crushed by this decision.
Hello Melvin, thank you for visiting my site and thank you for your opinion.
Question: What constitutes a minority?
Is it (strictly) the color of a person’s skin?
Or could it be the “measure” of an individual’s waste line?
If a person has an uncommon deformity or a rare disease, could that make them I minority?
How about an individual’s wealth, a person with $1 billion or more – would they be a minority?
According to Webster: “e·qual,” Having the same quantity, measure, or value as another.
Carmine from Silver City, (Dynasty).
You are without a doubt the most amazing graphics designer I have ever witnessed. I’ve been following your website for a little more than six months now and as a graphics designer myself – realizing what you have to work with – crappy clipart and crappy pictures from the web – I don’t know how you do it, ..but keep it up.
..and for the record, I borrow your stuff all the time, hope you don’t mind?
Hello Carmine, thank you for visiting my site and thank you for your praise – I was an art major in school – well for what little time I spent in school – I find art composition extremely rewarding – I’ve always loved manipulating shapes, textures and colors – wood has always been a favorite medium, – but then wood became too expensive.
Because when I finished a project I had to give it away…
The truth, ..with my ego there simply wasn’t enough money in the world to buy something that I created.
I’ve tried, I really have, but no matter what I do I still come around to the same conclusion…
..and that’s a good thing!
Truth forges understanding, I’ll be back tomorrow
