Yes, I’m disappointed and sad; not angry just sad about this country. All of my life I believed in the American exceptionalism. We could do and be whatever we wanted to be – provided we worked hard and aspired to greatness. Now the mantra is, don’t work hard and don’t care about success, the government will take care of you.

Just like Rush Limbaugh has been saying the last couple of days – how can you vote against “Santa Claus?” Democrats and Obama are the Santa Claus. Give you something for nothing. The government will take care of you. But who pays for all of this? The hard-working people do. However, too many Americans just don’t understand this concept. They think the “government” has a money tree and gives out money and goodies at will. Well, yes, the government has been printing money but that does not stimulate the economy. It just makes it worse.

Mitt Romney had a great vision for this country. He knew how to make money and success. But too many Americans weren’t listening to this because they can get it for free and not work hard for it. That is why I am sad. This isn’t the America I grew up in and imparted my ideas on my children – who are productive members of society I might say.

I cry for the young people who won’t be able to handle the responsibility of adulthood and take care of their children. I am angry at the American people who think that this is a free ride for everyone.

I know times change, but this direction our country is taking is not right. So we are saddled with four more years of Obama and his progressive/socialistic ideals. Mr. President, you have lied to us time and again and you have no idea how to get us out of this mess. That is why I am sad that Mitt Romney didn’t win and sad for our country.

I won’t get into how the Democrats stuffed the ballot boxes or stole the election. That is for someone else to say. I just see how much our country has changed for the worse and not the better.

May God Bless us and keep us safe.

The 4th of July, Independence Day, this year is very special to all of us. Our freedom is very precious to us and unfortunately as time goes on there are “forces” that are trying to suppress our freedoms.  We all need to be vigilant and make sure that we don’t give away our freedom by not paying attention to what is going on.

The United Nations is trying to get a world gun law passed and of course Hillary Clinton is enthusiastic about this. This would be disastrous for all Americans. The new healthcare law was found constitutional because it is a “tax”. Oh goody more taxes coming down in the near future. Eric Holder’s  Fast and Furious gun running has become a joke and this administration is spinning the truth on this matter. We need to hold this administration accountable for this debacle, don’t give up and let them sweep it under the rug!

Here in Colorado we have had disastrous fires that have devastated communities. My prayers are for all of the victims of these tragedies. President Obama was here and said that he would do whatever he can to help out. Right. I’m a little upset about this because when Texas was burning last year, the President turned a blind eye and a deaf ear to that state. Because we have a democrat governor, John Hickenlooper, he’s all over this important swing state to show that he cares. Too little, too late. His presence here was just a photo op for him. I do not trust Obama anymore because of all of his lies to us.

That is why I’m saying, listen carefully and only believe what sounds true to your heart. Don’t fall for a “snake oil” salesman because if it sounds too good to be true it probably is.

I hope next 4th of July we can really celebrate because we are truly free and enjoy our exceptionalism as being a proud American.

During this political year, it seems that all kinds of things are coming out that the presidential candidates did in the past. Obama ate dog meat when he was younger, smoked pot and did cocaine in high school. But Romney “bullied” a kid in high school by cutting off his long hair.

What a crime of the century! Mitt Romney cut off the hair of a high school boy in his school. Well CNN just had to bring on a psychologist to help us understand this type of behavior.They were talking about the repercussions of bullying and how it affects the lives of adults – the bully and the one being bullied. What a bunch of hogwash! I’m sure we have had incidents in high school that we weren’t proud of but we turned out okay.

So for the sake of transparency, I have to make a confession from my high school years. It was my Senior year, in fact it was the last week of my Senior year. My friend and I were in study hall – yes they had study hall back then – and we were bored. So we were chatting it up like crazy. One of the teachers in the study hall told us to be quiet not once but three times. Of course, we ignored him because we were Seniors. As a result, we were told to stand in the corner for the rest of the study hall period. We were embarrassed and never went back to study hall because we ditched that class the rest of the week.

There, I said it and now I feel better. I know it wasn’t a bully incident but we were being undisciplined and rude and well just being Seniors. So now I won’t be able to run for higher office in this country because of this incident.

How ridiculous is this? But when you can’t find anything else to demean another candidate, I guess you have to go back to his high school years and maybe elementary school to find out “dirt” about a candidate. Hold on tight everyone, this election year is going to be nasty and dirty and downright idiotic. Focus on the what we the people really are looking for in a president and not what the main stream media wants us to pay attention to.

Hilary Rosen, an advisor to the Obama Administration and DNC, just made her fifteen minutes of fame by trashing Ann Romney as a woman who has not worked a day in her life so she should have no opinion on the economy and how it affects women.

Isn’t that the most ridiculous thing you have ever heard in your life!

Who is this Hilary Rosen? I believe she is nothing but a feminist hag who loves to disrespect all women who don’t follow lock-step into her world. Also I think she is a plant from this Administration to detract from the real issues of the day.

The number of Americans filing for jobless aid rose last week to the highest level since January. The jobless claims data comes in the wake of Friday’s disappointing employment report for March, which showed the economy created 120,000 new jobs, the smallest amount since October. Instead the headlines of the day are about Rosen, a feminist hag, who has a vendetta against stay at home moms.

So do you think that is the reason why the DNC sent her out to trash Ann Romney? Just to deflect the real issues of our economy? Get ready for more of this to happen between now and November.

Rosen thinks being a stay at home mom shouldn’t have an opinion or even know what is going on in this world. I totally disagree with her premise.  Ann Romney and I are about the same age. We are both highly educated women but we took different paths because of our situations. I stayed home with my two boys until the economy crashed during Jimmy Carter’s presidency in the 70’s. At that time the economy sucked. Gas prices were high and were being rationed, cost of groceries were high – just like it is today.  I had no choice but to find work to help out. Being a mom and a full-time employee was hard but I did it for my family not for the feminism cause. Isn’t that what happens to keep a family together?

I admire women who stay at home and not work. They are the ones who are very active in the PTA and other outside school activities.  They also are great at budgeting money as well as their time. They play roles that include teachers, nurses/doctors, psychologists, caregivers and chefs to name a few things. When a mom works she gives up some of these roles to daycare, schools and take out dinners.

Bringing home a paycheck feels good, but being a mom and wife feels terrific. If you can afford to stay home – stay home – if not don’t trash stay at home moms. For heaven sakes we are all sisters and should respect the way we choose to live.

But as you can tell, feminist hags just don’t get it.
