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.

I don’t know about you, but I cannot wait until this election is over. I’m so tired of the phone calls, the ads on TV and all the flapping about who is the best person to be President. As you may know, I am a conservative and have been disenchanted by the current Administration – Obama and his buddies to be specific. What a tragedy he has heaped on our country. We are more divided now, our economy is tanking and there is no feeling of unity as Americans. Whose fault is it? Obama.

I heard Obama say the other day, “Who do you trust?” Well Mr. President, you lied about Benghazi where an Ambassador and three Americans died. You lied about Obamacare, my health care cost is just like Mitt Romney said, up over $2,000 a year. Your all of the above energy programs is spot on what Mitt Romney said; the all above is above ground and nothing below ground – that was a good zinger! And when Obama says, vote for revenge – OMG – what is this guy all about?

I have voted already. I have voted for love of country and put a leader in the White House. I voted for Mitt Romney. Now all of you progressive wackos can take a shot at me. I don’t care. I love this country and it hurts when the current Administration has dragged our country in the mud.

One more day and we will truly take back our country from this most corrupt Administration that I have ever seen in my lifetime.

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.

According to CNSNews article, “Pelosi: Her Catholic Faith ‘Compels’ her to support same sex marriage,” just makes me want to say OMG!

Here is an excerpt from the article:

“House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Thursday that her Catholic faith “compels” her to “be against discrimination of any kind” and thus for same-sex marriage.

A reporter asked Pelosi: “Many of the people that are opposed to gay marriage cite their religion as the reason why they’re opposed. You’re a Catholic that supports gay marriage. Do you believe that religion and the idea that you can support gay marriage can be separated? And how do you grapple with the idea that you support gay marriage as a Catholic?”

Pelosi responded: “My religion has, compels me–and I love it for it–to be against discrimination of any kind in our country, and I consider this a form of discrimination. I think it’s unconstitutional on top of that. So I think that yesterday was a great day for America because the president in a very personal, as well as presidential way, made history, and hopefully this will bring people together on the issue,” Pelosi said.

Pelosi also said that the president “went a long way” in shortening the difference between the “inevitable and the inconceivable” of the introduction of same-sex “marriage.”

She further said: “It’s a matter of time. It’s all about time. And on these issues, what is inevitable to some of us is inconceivable to others and what we want to do is shorten the difference between the inevitable and the inconceivable and I think the president went a long way in doing that yesterday.”

Love how she used the word “inconceivable”. This reminds me of the character from the movie “The Princess Bride,” who used that word endlessly. If you haven’t seen the movie, watch it because it is “inconceivable” that anyone uses that word anymore.

Nancy, Nancy what are we going to do about you? You claim you are a devote Catholic but then you say things like this? I really think she has some form of dementia or is it because she wants to just jump on the bandwagon for political purposes? She and Joe Biden should take a long hard look at their devotion to being Catholic. It may be time for them to change their religion.

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.

Well it’s about time!

For over a year, Eric Holder has been stonewalling, twisting his story and covering up what he knew and didn’t know about Fast and Furious. According to an article by Katie Pavlich of Townhall, Darrell Issa, Chairman of the House Oversight Committee said that within weeks he will file contempt charges against Eric Holder.

Holder still won’t comply with congressional subpoenas for the Fast and Furious documents. Many of the documents were due by February 9 and now it is near the end of April.

You may not know but Katie Pavlich has written a book titled “Fast and Furious: Barack Obama’s Bloodiest Scandal and Its Shameless Coverup” that delves into this subject. I have not had a chance to read the book but I’m sure she has done extensive research on this subject. She was on Bill O’Reilly the other night discussing her book and it seems that old Bill was skeptical about her findings. I’m not, I have read a lot of Katie Pavlich articles and she is a true journalist and deals only in facts.

As Katie says in her article, “The question now becomes, will perjury charges follow charges of contempt? After all, Holder has changed his testimony about what he knew and when he knew about Fast and Furious multiple times, under oath in front of Congress.”

Chairman Issa should also be looking into what Janet Napolitano, the third Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, also knew about this as well. How far up the chain of command did this go? Maybe we’ll have a May or June surprise coming soon that will shake up this Administration.

This really boils my blood!

As you may know, President Obama early this week told his Russian counterpart, Medvedev, to give him “space” so that he could have “more flexibility” after the 2012 presidential election in regard to missile defense issues. First of all, what does that mean and second of all if it means what I think it means, then Obama wants to give up our defenses to please the Russians.

Now I was brought up during the days when you did not trust the Communists in Russia. You kept them at arm’s length and showed peace through strength – yes just like Ronald Reagan said. Now the Obama administration wants to give in to them and I wouldn’t trust any communist as far as I could through them, especially Putin.

Obviously, Mitt Romney, GOP candidate running for President, also feels the same way when he said that “Russia is the geopolitical foe.” Makes sense to me. But the communist propaganda machine, Pravda, revved up its rhetoric against him.

According to the Weekly Standard, in an op-ed posted on Pravda’s website said this: “Electing Mitt Romney as the next President of the United States of America would be like appointing a serial paedophile as a kindergarten teacher, a rapist as a janitor at a girls’ dormitory or a psychopath with a fixation on knives as a kitchen hand. His comments on Russia are a puerile attempt at making the grand stage and boy, did he blow it…”

And that was only the beginning of their inflammatory remarks against Mitt Romney. Pravda goes on to question American democracy and say that Romney is just an “adolescent” school boy.  Somewhat like Condoleezza Rice did before the Bush regime was er…”elected” …, Mitt Romney takes the chance to mouth off about Russia, calling her “our number one geopolitical foe” which fights “every cause for the world’s worst actors”. Unfortunately, such vapid stupidity has become commonplace among senior US politicians, providing the rest of the world with a telling insight as to the real nature of the political class in that country – out of touch, out of date and dangerously jingoistic. In short, overgrown self-opinionated school boys with super-egos but nothing whatsoever to back it up with.”

Then, Pravda praises present Russian relations with the United States under President Obama. “Exactly at a time when Russia and the USA are finding that they have far more in common than differences, exactly when they see that they are much more friends than foes, when they see that there is so much to be gained through collaboration, a foul-mouthed, big-headed oaf like Romney with more money than sense makes a comment that reveals who he really is to the world: a pea-brained, pith-headed simpleton with too much testosterone and too little common sense, with zero tact, no diplomacy and a paramount grasp on the intricacies of world politics. A prize, good-for-nothing ignoramus,” writes Pravda.

The piece ends by threatening Romney. “So talking about geopolitical foes…next time Mitt Romney had better back off, butt out and mind his manners, so as not to appear like a foul-mouthed guttersnipe whose utter ignorance and pig-headed arrogance is only too clear for all to see. See how he walked straight into this one, ladies and gentlemen? Imagine THAT as your President…”

How dare these communist propagandists write an article like this! Butt out of our political system until you find some civility to your tone. Not only is this an attack piece but nasty and dirty propaganda that you have been preaching for over 70 years or more.

I don’t trust communists and never will. I know that I am not alone on this, ask the people of Poland, Hungry, Czechoslovakia and other countries you held under your thumb for all those years. They don’t want you back in their lives and I don’t want you in my life or in my country’s life.
