THE GREAT OBAMA’s Grade School Movie

After much research, we have found a rare piece of movie footage from THE GREAT OBAMA’s grade school days.  We might not be able to find his birth certificate, but we now know what a typical school day was for him. What is even more amazing is that a few other democrats attended the same school with him:

Wow, after seeing this my friend Ed Mazlish is right, government has no business teaching our children.  Look at the little monsters it turns out.

“My friends, we live in the greatest nation in the history of the world. I hope you’ll join with me as we try to change it.”  Barack Hussein Obama

A Billion

Sometimes after going through all of the spam, an email will really hit you, here is one example:

How many zeros in a billion???
 
This is too true to be funny…
 
The next time you hear a politician use the word ‘billion’ in a casual manner, think about whether you want the ‘politicians’ spending YOUR tax money.
 
 
A billion is a difficult number to comprehend,but one advertising agency did a good job of putting that figure into some perspective in one of it’s releases.
 
 
A.
 
A billion seconds ago it was 1959.
 
B.
 
A billion minutes ago Jesus was alive.
 
C.
 
A billion hours ago our ancestors were living in the Stone Age.
 
 
D.
A billion days ago no-one walked on the earth on two feet.
 
 
E.
 
A billion dollars ago was only 8 hours and 20 minutes,
at the rate our government is spending it.
 
 
While this thought is still fresh in our brain…
let’s take a look at New Orleans ….
 
It’s amazing what you can learn with some simple division.
 
 
Louisiana Senator, Mary Landrieu (D)
is presently asking Congress for 250 BILLION DOLLARS
to rebuild New Orleans .. Interesting number…
what does it mean?
 
 
 
A.
Well… if you are one of the 484,674 residents of New Orleans
(every man, woman, and child) you each get $516,528.
 
B.
Or… if you have one of the 188,251 homes in
New Orleans , your home gets $1,329,787.
 
 
C.
Or… if you are a family of four…your family gets $2,066,012.
 
 
Imagine, $700 billion bailing out banks in the US. 

That’s enough to fund complete medical care for every man, woman and child currently alive in the US for 11 years!!
50 billion to bail out the auto industry???   Washington , D.C. & Ottawa ON.
 
HELLO!!! >
Are all our calculators broken??

and our nation was the most prosperous in the world.
 
 
We had absolutely no national debt…
We had the largest middle class in the world..
and Mom stayed home to raise the kids.
 
 
What happened?
Can you spell ‘politicians! ‘
 
 
And I still have to press ‘1’  for English.
 
 
I hope this goes around the US & CANADA at least 1 billion times
 
 
What the heck happened???
To Governor Stupidhead and all of the other idiots in Trenton, I can give you a billion reasons why you have to go, but come November, the purge will begin, in the meantime, just remember; “IT’S TAXES, STUPID!”

Exposing the liars!

A few weeks ago, Bill (No Drill) Pascrell, another Pelosi flunky, wrote a letter to the editor of our local newspaper.  In it, he told his faithful constituents all of the great things he was doing to help them during this energy crisis.  Of course I felt that these people should know both sides and let them decide where the truth lay.  Here is my response to Billy’s letter, which was published today:

In regards to: Rep. Bill Pascrell’s letter of August 27th.

To the Editor

Community News

12-38 River Road

Fair Lawn, NJ 07410

 

To the Editor:

 

Recently you published a letter written by Rep. Bill Pascrell, Jr. (D) Eighth Congressional District of New Jersey.  In that letter, Rep. Pascrell tried to defend his and his party’s inactions to truly allow the United States of America to become independent of foreign energy supplies.  Besides reciting nothing more than the tired party platform of House Speaker Pelosi, many of his “facts” are just plain not true.

 

Rep. Pascrell position on off-shore drilling shows both his and the democrats lack of knowledge on this issue.  Right off the coast of southern California, in the Santa Barbara Channel, a huge oil formation is present and could be delivering “American” crude oil to the refineries in that area in less than one year!  Proven oil fields off of both coasts of Florida could be on-line in two years.  In fact, the Cubans have contracted with China to develop these fields themselves.   Why shouldn’t Americans be the beneficiary of this source of crude oil?  Drilling in ANWR, which would only require a very small footprint in the reserve, could be adding its own contribution to America’s energy needs in less than five years, using the already existing Alaskan pipeline.  These oil fields are already mapped and researched, unlike the 311 million acres that have been leased in the last few years.  Also, by drilling off-shore or in ANWR, the oil companies are not subjected to additional legal hassling by every Tom, Dick and John environmental group that wants to protect imaginary environmental problems. They can do what they do best, get oil for all Americans, while then researching supplies in these areas and developing the necessary protocols to retrieve that oil when they find it.

 

Over two thirds of the citizens in New Jersey want off-shore drilling now.  Is not the job of a “Representative” to represent the will of the people who have given him that job?

 

The argument about drawing from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve defeats the very purpose of the reserve, which was to be able to supply up to 90 days of oil if crude oil supplies were cut off from foreign sources.  This supply would allow the country to defend itself, while insuring that its citizens would not freeze, and the economy would not grind to a halt.  It never was intended to be used for election year pandering.

 

Using arguments like “increased automobile fuel economy standards” only transfers the problem from congress to an already depressed domestic auto manufacturing sector.   Also conveniently left out of Rep. Pascrell’s arguments is that of very small (fuel efficient) automobiles survivability while traveling  the interstate highway system with the ever larger and heavier trucks that currently populate them.

 

The last paragraph of Rep. Pacrell’s letter just has to be rearranged to show what the elected representatives of this country are currently doing; America is in the middle of a serious energy emergency that is being used by opportunistic political entities to advance individual agendas.  Political gimmickry and partisan politics are now being used for personal gain at the expense of the American public.

 

Instead of condescending statements like this; “I will continue working in Congress to harness America’s innovative spirit and forge an energy future with the best interest of this nation’ economy and environment in mind”, as a harbinger to the November elections, maybe he should start to listen to the simple, practical solutions that the citizens of both his district and his state have already reached, Drill Here, Drill Now!
