Prairieland Ride

Colorado is a beautiful state and Caleb's mom and dad let him make the most of it. Here he is riding his balance bike over a long trail across the prairie.

I'd love to see this remain a free country for him to grow up as a citizen able to go his own way and not be forced to do whatever it is the state wants him to do.

However, it doesn't look good at present. The socialists have taken over much of education and the media.

Our president is at this moment trying to get us into a big mess in Syria. Thankfully as of today, he is wanting Congress to support his move into Syria where we can lose some more of our good men. He was planning to go it alone bypassing Congress.  That's right, it isn't up to the president to declare war; but that is just what he was ready to do.  He has already sent battle ships and they are stationed, ready to attack. The constitution did not give that right to the president, but  to Congress.

Now, here is an important fact: Assad did not use chemical weapons against his people, as he has been accused.  The Rebels were mishandling chemical weapons and accidentally set them off themselves.
They have admitted to that.  And yet, our ships are in the middle east with weapons trained on Syria.
If they attack, many innocent men, women, and children will be maimed  and/ or killed. And so will many of our own troops.

Please tell me...why do we not impeach this lame president?

Happy Birthday, Jill

After emailing back and forth for some time, we came up with a time that most of us could get together.  Phyllis missed it since she was flying and I missed our life group to be there at O'Charley's to celebrate Jill's birthday, which was the next day. It was special to have her here since she moved to the hot state of Texas the beginning of June.

Now women celebrate their birthdays, but not necessarily their ages. Some of us had been counting backward for some time. However, I quit that. There comes a time when you figure you have earned all those wrinkles and grey hairs.

While Jill certainly looks to be the youngest one in the picture, I'm not sure. I don't dwell on age and thus do not remember the ages of my friends...except for two however, who are a few months younger than I am and who are constantly telling me that I am the oldest one of us.

Women as a whole are secretive with their ages.

Well there are lots of things that should be a secret. One that comes to my mind right now is where and when you are going to strike if you are going to war. It wouldn't be a good idea to announce when you will be fighting and large your army will be and the weapons you plan to use. But we are actually in that state right now. It's like an invitation to play a game of football or something. CRAZY!

No. 175

You've heard the old saying...well maybe you have not if you are not as old as the hills...'the shoemaker's wife goes barefoot'.  It also makes sense that the bike maker's son goes  without one. However, John had made sure Caleb has a bicycle...but as of this month, he still does not have the best of all bikes...a Panda bamboo bike. I'm hoping that soon, he will have one of those beauties and that he will continue to race with his peers.

I understand that if it hadn't been for an unfortunate start on the part of some participants, Caleb would have won, or come in second in this last bike race.

As of this minute, our country is suffering because of an unfortunate start with the socialists plot to undermine our democracy. While we were enjoying the fruits of our labors, they were busy infiltrating our teachers colleges with it like it is...communists. We are reaping the consequences of those liberal professors. Teachers in the public schools are now leading our young children down the path of socialism, where they are all taught to think like sheep... all followers. While none are encouraged to think on their own...a talent that made our nation great.

Wherever you are this night, I pray you are in a relationship with Jesus and depend on his love day to day. He will save us from the worst of this mess in which we find ourselves.

Extra Spoiling

April came to visit us this past weekend. It was great having her  here. I'd like to keep her, but I'm sure Tim and Lauren would not approve. Maggie loved her, of course. And she got a little extra spoiling.

Please pray that we don't get into the war in Syria. If we do the way  our president has threatened, we will do nothing more than spend billions of dollars, kill innocent people, and strengthen the position of Assad. Every move in the plan has already been leaked.  The enemy knows the plan.  Not only that, but we would endanger Israel.

LIttle Boy Big Horse

It was a big company picnic  and one of the highlights was horses. Caleb really appreciated that. He always looks so little up there. I realize that time is passing quickly. It will seen like very few years until he will be riding all alone.

I'm tired and have no desire to tie  this to the fact that those in the Department of Defense Materials are now calling state's rights fans, '"extremists'.   As a matter of fact, if you talk of individual liberties, states' rights and how  to make the world a better place, you are now considered an extremist.

In Trouble Again

See who got caught doing it again. It hadn't been long since she was  shamed for unrolling the toilet paper in Ron's bathroom. She had stood on the bathroom scale to reach it. Now she is a little taller, but the key was...jumping. The sound of her dumps was what tipped us up to what she was doing.  Now if you are a guest in this house, you may have to inquire as to where you will find the stuff.

Chicks and Ladybugs

Inquisitive, that's what Caleb is. He wants to see it all and he is constantly learning. It's a good trait. And it seems many of us are losing that curious mind that we really should have. We are being programed to think like everyone else, to act without question, to follow the crowd. Individuality is not encouraged at all.  Because of this, we are falling prey to those who would dominate us and extinguish our freedom.

If you have an inquisitive mind, you will most certainly want to read the rest of this post.

This is from Glenn Beck's The Blaze:

 "The IRS sent more than $46 million in tax refunds to 23,994 “unauthorized” alien workers who all listed the same address in Atlanta, Ga., in 2011, according to an audit report by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA).
However, the Atlanta address that received millions of dollars in refunds was not the only address apparently housing thousands of “unauthorized” aliens. In fact, it wasn’t even the only address in Atlanta that was claiming such a situation.
The TIGTA audit report, published last year at the request of members of Congress, revealed 10 addresses in the U.S. that were issued anywhere from 1,846 to 23,994 tax refunds each. Four of those 10 addresses were located in Atlanta. "
You would think there would be someone at the IRS who would find this. I would bet there are many computer programmers who could write a program that would catch that immediately.
While this kind of graft  goes  on unnoticed, the average taxpayer must mind his 'p's and q's.
When a government or anything else gets so big that it can make a humungous 'mistake' like this, it needs to be downsized...and quickly.

The Truth Be Known

In an exercise of honesty, Aussie asked his mom if they should look like they really felt about the first day back at school. She told him, "Of course not! You are to act how you feel now that you are home and can get on the computer." Well that definitely made a better picture.  

Would love to think that the triplets felt the same way about school as I felt, but that  would be a little unusual, especially for the boys.

I must say, however, that going back to school on August 9th is much too early. There is still 1/3 of summer left.  And in Tennessee, the weather is still HOT. I understand that they will have more vacation days off during the year. I suppose Christmas Vacation and Spring break will be longer.

Hope this schedule doesn't make for even more review days. I used to absolutely hate all the review when we started back to school in the fall. Why go over things we already knew?...but I've been told that many if not most of the children do forget and have to relearn much of what was taught the year before.

While teaching first grade that was not a problem. I pretty much started with a clean slate and taught reading and math...not like today when they supposedly learn more in kindergarten.  That brings up a question.  If they start learning earlier, what happens? Why do they graduate knowing less? Doesn't make sense  to me.  Or at least it wouldn't if I didn't know all the time they spend learning absolutely worthless and sometimes false things. And of course it must be trying at times when there is no discipline method acceptable that actually works. And there is not much help from home. Many do not even get a good night's sleep. It is also difficult for a teacher to compete with TV and computers.

Now all that is really off the subject for these grandchildren of mine, for they are homeschooled. They spend only one day a week in a classroom with teachers other than their mother. I applaud that. It is not easy, but in my opinion, it is the very best route to learning today, unless one can afford an outstanding private school.

Otterbox Otter

Sometimes we get news that puts us in a least that happens to me. Our nation is falling apart and no one seems willing or powerful enough to pick up the pieces and put us back together again.

Three young boys were arrested for murdering an innocent visitor to this country from Australia.  They did it 'for the fun of it'. Has no one ever told them that is wrong? Has anyone ever told them there are consequences for bad behavior? Has anyone ever talked to them? Does anyone love them enough to know what they are doing? Have they been plugged into the anti American, anti God trash music from the time they were born. Where are their fathers?  Do they care? The more I think about this and other senseless behavior in this world today, I feel increasingly sick to my stomach. I wish I could fix it. I find myself feeling sorry for these unlovable boys, but even more so for the family who lost a son they dearly loved.

I'm so out of sorts today that I've forgotten to tell you about Caleb at his dad's company picnic. Ollie the Otterbox Otter was there to entertain the children. It surely did amuse Caleb.

Blue Moon

I'm not sure why the picture came out looking gold. It looked whiter to my eyes. But it pleases me that it fits the song..."But when I looked the moon had turned to gold."

Good and Bad

It is good to have a much better view of the lake, but there were some not so good days during the 
demolition of the old house. This layout shows the worst part of the whole operation...THE DUST!

These pictures give you a good idea of the overwhelming amount of dust we dealt with those two days.
The air was almost constantly filled with the thick stuff.  I hope our lungs don't still show the affect of those days.  We had loads of dust everywhere until it finally rained hard and washed it all away.
There is still evidence laying around the property...bits and pieces of building material and other junk.

I want to take the opportunity to post a very interesting piece tonight written by Maureen Scott.

Maureen Scott is an ardent American patriot who was born in Pittsburgh, PA, and retired to Richmond, VA, in 2000. Free from the nine-to-five grind of writing for employers and clients, she began writing political commentary to please herself and express her convictions, as do I. Our Pledge of Allegiance, a military band playing the National Anthem, and the wisdom of our Founding Fathers, inspire her passion and views. Her life is guided by a firm belief that truth is the most important virtue, and that God knows what He is doing with her. She is my guest writer today, for I could have never said it better. Please take the time to read and listen to this good American woman. I believe you will be glad you did. I give you Maureen Scott. 



The Architect of Destruction

By Maureen Scott

Barack Obama appears to be a tormented man filled with resentment, anger, and disdain for anyone of an opinion or view other than his. He acts in the most hateful, spiteful, malevolent, vindictive ways in order to manipulate and maintain power and control over others. Perhaps, because, as a child, he grew up harboring an abiding bitterness toward the U.S. that was instilled in him by his family and mentors…it seems to have never left him.

It is not the color of his skin that is a problem in America .

Rather it is the blackness that fills his soul and the hollowness in his heart where there should be abiding pride and love for this country.

Think: Have we ever heard Obama speak lovingly of the U.S. or its people, with deep appreciation and genuine respect for our history, our customs, our sufferings and our blessings? Has he ever revealed that, like most patriotic Americans, he gets "goose bumps" when a band plays "The Star Spangled Banner," or sheds a tear when he hears a beautiful rendition of " America the Beautiful?" Does his heart burst with pride when millions of American flags wave on a National holiday - or someone plays "taps" on a trumpet? Has he ever shared the admiration of the military, as we as lovers of those who keep us free, feel when soldiers march by? It is doubtful because Obama did not grow up sharing our experiences or our values. He did not sit at the knee of a Grandfather or Uncle who showed us his medals and told us about the bravery of his fellow troops as they tramped through foreign lands to keep us free. He didn't have grandparents who told stories of suffering and then coming to America, penniless, and the opportunities they had for building a business and life for their children.

Away from this country as a young child, Obama didn't delight in being part of America and its greatness. He wasn't singing our patriotic songs in kindergarten, or standing on the roadside for a holiday parade and eating a hot dog, or lighting sparklers around a campfire on July 4th as fireworks exploded over head, or placing flags on the grave sites of fallen and beloved American heroes.

Rather he was separated from all of these experiences and doesn't really understand us and what it means to be an American. He is void of the basic emotions that most feel regarding this country and insensitive to the instinctive pride we have in our national heritage. His opinions were formed by those who either envied us or wanted him to devalue the United States and the traditions and patriotism that unites us.

He has never given a speech that is filled with calm, reassuring, complimentary, heartfelt statements about all the people in the U.S. Or one that inspires us to be better and grateful and proud that in a short time our country became a leader, and a protector of many. Quite the contrary, his speeches always degenerate into mocking, ridiculing tirades as he faults our achievements as well as any critics or opposition for the sake of a laugh, or to bolster his ego. He uses his Office to threaten and create fear while demeaning and degrading any American who opposes his policies and actions. A secure leader, who has noble self-esteem and not false confidence, refrains from showing such dread of critics and displaying a cocky, haughty attitude.

Mostly, his time seems to be spent causing dissension, unrest, and anxiety among the people of America, rather than uniting us (even though he was presented to us as the "Great Uniter"). He creates chaos for the sake of keeping people separated, envious, aggrieved and ready to argue. Under his leadership Americans have been kept on edge, rather than in a state of comfort and security. He incites people to be aggressive toward, and disrespectful of, those of differing opinions. And through such behavior, Obama has lowered the standards for self-control and mature restraint to the level of street-fighting gangs, when he should be raising the bar for people to strive toward becoming more considerate, tolerant, self-disciplined, self-sustaining, and self-assured.

Not a day goes by that he is not attempting to defy our laws, remove our rights, over-ride established procedures, install controversial appointees, enact divisive mandates, and assert a dictatorial form of power.

· Never has there been a leader of this great land who used such tactics to harm and hurt the people and this country.

· Never have we had a President who spoke with a caustic, evil tongue against the citizenry rather than present himself as a soothing, calming and trustworthy force.

· Never, in this country, have we experienced how much stress one man can cause a nation of people - on a daily basis!

Obama has promoted the degeneration of peace, civility, and quality of cooperation between us. He thrives on tearing us down, rather than building us up. He is the Architect of the decline of America , and the epitome of a Demagogue.

 Although I despise the things he has done to this country, I am told by our heavenly father that I must love the man. I really don't find that hard, because I truly feel sorry for him. It must be wretched to have been raised as he was. He really didn't stand much of a chance.

Nap Time

Ron has a new napping partner. Maggie enjoys an afternoon sleep, and as usual, she likes company.

Even when I don't feel the need for a nap, it is comforting to me to know  that Ron has managed the time to catch up on some sleep. The two of them look so peaceful here.

I'm not the type to rest much... need my 7 hours at night, but rarely do more. It seems a handicap in some ways.  Feel and ever present need to be doing something constantly, or I go 'buggy'. Can't really explain it well, but it seems something like wanting to jump out of my skin. There is a sign in my 'office' that simply says...RELAX.  Problem is, I don't see much need to do that and if and when I do, I don't really know how.   Oh yes, I can think something repetitive...but why do that? I'd rather just DO SOMETHING. There is always LOTS to be done wherever I find myself.

But then again, one does need to sit quietly  sometimes and contemplate our glorious God, the creator.
He said, "Be still and know that I am God." Psalm 46:10

Both Good and Bad Multiply

A few years I found this large flower at the end of season and brought it home. It has continued to multiply year after year. It now provides the area near the  lake with large bright flowers for much of the summer season.

It's so good to see good things multiply, but those things that are a detriment to society seem to be multiplying at a dizzying speed....things like irresponsibility...selfishness, etc.

This email has been making the rounds. It is attributed to a certain young doctor. I don't know if he said it or not, but I know it to be a good example of what we are dealing with at this time here in the states.

"During my shift in the Emergency Room last night, I  had the pleasure of evaluating a patient whose smile revealed an expensive  shiny gold tooth, whose body was adorned with a wide assortment of elaborate  and costly tattoos, who wore a very expensive brand of tennis shoes and who  chatted on a new cellular telephone equipped with a popular R&B ring  tone. While glancing over her patient chart, I happened to notice that her  payer status was listed as "Medicaid"! During my examination of  her, the patient informed me that she smokes more than one costly pack of  cigarettes every day and somehow still has money to buy pretzels and beer.

And, you and our Congress expect me to pay for this woman's health care? I  contend that our nation's "health care crisis" is not the result of  a shortage of quality hospitals, doctors or nurses. Rather, it is the result  of a "crisis of culture", a culture in which it is perfectly acceptable  to spend money on luxuries and vices while refusing to  take care of one's self or, heaven forbid, purchase health insurance. It is a  culture based on the irresponsible credo that "I can do whatever I want  to because someone else will always take care of me."

Once you fix this "culture crisis" that rewards irresponsibility  and dependency, you'll be amazed at how quickly our nation's health care  difficulties will disappear.

 The letter is rightly attributed: Dr. Starner Jones

Happy Eleven

Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense, who has been with us for many years.  No one knows for sure how old he was, since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape.
He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as:
- Knowing when to come in out of the rain;
- Why the early bird gets the worm; 
- Life isn't always fair; and
- Maybe it was my fault..
Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don't spend more than you can earn) and reliable strategies (adults, not children, are in charge).  His health began to deteriorate rapidly when well-intentioned but overbearing regulations were set in place. Reports of a 6-year-old boy charged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate; teens suspended from school for using mouthwash after lunch; and a teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly student, only worsened his condition. 
Common Sense lost ground when parents attacked teachers for doing the job that they themselves had failed to do in disciplining their unruly children. 
It declined even further when schools were required to get parental consent to administer sun lotion or an aspirin to a student; but could not inform parents when a student became pregnant and wanted to have an abortion. 
Common Sense lost the will to live as the churches became businesses; and criminals received better treatment than their victims. 
Common Sense took a beating when you couldn't defend yourself from a burglar in your own home and the burglar could sue you for assault.
Common Sense finally gave up the will to live, after a woman failed to realize that a steaming cup of coffee was hot. She spilled a little in her lap, and was promptly awarded a huge settlement. 
Common Sense was preceded in death, by his parents, Truth and Trust, by his wife, Discretion, by his daughter, Responsibility, and by his son, Reason. 

You may have seen this before. It was easy to find on the internet.  It just seems to me that we should all go over all these points...soon.

Ron and our neighbor sit on their tractors and watch the demolition of the rental which had blocked some of our view of the lake. It really is a man thing. I could not sit there all day and watch them hack away at that house. I did stay around enough to take pictures, because I know Ron really enjoys my keeping a record of his endeavors.  

It was his idea to tear down the house. I understand his reasons. It would have cost a lot to restore it for the next renter and he valued the view more than dealing with another renter.

Being a landlord is harder than it once was, especially around here where many of those who do not own their own homes have left to find work elsewhere.  And the laws are on the side of renters. A person should be able to choose whom he wants to rent his house, especially if it is next door to his...but that is no longer the case.

 It could get even worse when inflation hits and those who rent won't be able to afford to pay rent, large health insurance fees and to keep their families fed.

Do you remember how this Universal Health Care was to benefit us?  HAHA big joke. The insurance WE MUST BUY (old and young alike)  now is much more expensive than ever. But that is not all. It will be inferior to the best health care in the world that we have become used to getting.

Well Rounded

I can't imagine Caleb getting a better education anywhere else. Beth is so good with him. She keeps him busy with meaningful activity.   This  day he had been threading the oversized needle, and stitching
this item. Is that a prerequisite for soccer, or what?

I do know that my father, his great grand father could sew...he was well rounded. He also played football and read everything he could get hold of. He knew  the Bible from cover to cover. He built, plumed and wired  our house...and was a research chemist by trade. I'll not say he didn't cook, but I don't remember seeing that. He did have a garden and was president of his garden club. With those genes and a mother  who is tops at exposing him to lots of activities, he is bound to be a winner.

I'm very impressed with Ashton Kutcher at this time. He is talking to young teens in a way they are not hearing these days. He is telling them to work. GASP! He is  telling them well. Following is a short bit of what he's been saying:
KUTCHER:  I believe that opportunity looks a lot like hard work.  When I was 13 I had my first job with my dad carrying shingles up to the roof.  And then I got a job washing dishes at a restaurant.  And then I got a job in a grocery store deli.  And then I got a job in a factory sweeping cheerio dust off the ground.  And I've never had a job in my life that I was better than.  I was always just lucky to have a job.  And every job I had was a steppingstone to my next job, and I never quit my job until I had my next job.  And so opportunities look a lot like work.

Work Ethic

Here's hoping that Caleb continues to be a big help come December when he is the big brother.

Come to think about it, I could use some help like that around here.

It is good to see some young ones learning a work ethic instead of just sitting back expecting everything to be done for them.  There are way too many of that type these days.

My baby has put herself down for the night. She crawled into her crate some time ago.  No matter how much she enjoys being on the sofas, or the bed, she still prefers her crate when bedtime rolls around. I am hoping though that she will want to sleep with us. I'm ready to have her stay with  ne e

At My Door

While Maggie is excited to see anyone come to the door, I  am not so much that way.  There are some that I'm not eager to see. I keep getting letters from the government healthcare people wanting to give me a medical exam in my home. Now, I do have a doctor, and I have had regular check-ups, even though my main doctor has been in the hospital. I'm in fairly good health for my age. I have an exam scheduled for this month.   Surely that will suffice. Why in my home? I do not have an exam room...just common everyday stuff here. They would have to tote along all their equipment.  WHY??? Sounds crazy to me.

Oh, but here is one of the persons  I would love to see at my door. I would invite him into my home without batting an eye. He is a Senator of the state of Louisiana... Elbert Guillory.

Check him our here...

Online Vs Exercise

I wish I could travel the earth with these triplets. I would enjoy immensely showing them all the wonders; but I suppose it wouldn't do them much good. You see, they are like others of their generation...plugged in constantly...well almost all the time.  Their new iPods make it possible for them to be engaged in online happenings at all times in all places.

That is one reason I really like to see them enjoy Boettler park. Not only is it a free public playground, but the kids enjoy it each time they come to Ohio. It's great to see them breathe fresh air and get some exercise .

Family Fun

Caleb loves his daddy.  And I love my sleep, so I'm heading off to bed and it isn't even midnight yet. I must be getting old.  lol

But before I do, check out this list to see if your senator is a traitor:

In a 53-46 vote, the senate narrowly passed a measure that will stop the United States
from entering into the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty
The Statement of Purpose from the bill read:   To uphold Second Amend-
ment rights and prevent the United States from entering into the United Nations

Arms Trade Treaty. 
The U.N. Small Arms Treaty, which has been championed by the Obama

Administration, would have effectively placed a global ban on the import and

export of small firearms.
The ban would have affected all private gun owners in the U.S. , and had

language that would have implemented an international gun registry on all

private guns and ammo.
 Astonishingly, 46 of our United States Senators were willing to give away

our Constitutional rights to a foreign power. Here are the 46 senators that

voted to give your rights to the U.N.  
Baldwin (D-WI)
Baucus (D-MT)
Bennet (D-CO)
Blumenthal (D-CT)

You often see people  sitting side by side and talking on their cell phones, maybe to each other.

In the old days, however, people spoke face to face, even  to their neighbors. They would often stand in their backyards and chat across the fence.

In our neighborhood, we have our own version... Ron and Norm sit in our backyard, chatting face to face and tractor to tractor.   I was lucky to have a camera close by this morning to get this shot. They continued to talk for some time and I got even more pictures. I love it.

Red Sky at Night, Sailors Delight

Sunsets across the lake are amazing. I miss living where I could see that phenomenon each night. We saw this red delight one evening while out on the boat. I desperately need beautiful things like this in my life, since our day to day lives are privy to news from Washington.

Mychal Massie, a respected writer and talk show host in Los Angeles wrote about the sad state of affairs in our capital with the ruling family.

I am posting his exact letter  and it can be verified here:

The other evening on my twitter, a person asked me why I didn't
Like the Obama's? Specifically I was asked: "I have to ask, why
Do you hate the Obama's? It seems personal, not policy related.
You even dissed (disrespect) their Christmas family picture."

The truth is I do not like the Obamas, what they represent, their
Ideology, and I certainly do not like his policies and legislation. I've
Made no secret of my contempt for the Obamas. As I responded
To the person who asked me the aforementioned question, I don't
Like them because they are committed to the fundamental change
Of my/our country into what can only be regarded as a Communist state.
I don't hate them per definition, but I condemn them because they are
The worst kind of racialists, they are elitist Leninists with contempt for
Traditional America . They display disrespect for the sanctity of the office
He holds, and for those who are willing to admit same, Michelle Obama's
Raw contempt for white America is transpicuous.

I don't like them because they comport themselves as emperor and empress.
I expect, no I demand respect, for the Office of President and a love of our
Country and her citizenry from the leader entrusted with the governance of
Same. President and Mrs. Reagan displayed an unparalleled love for the country
And her people. The Reagan's made Americans feel good about themselves and
About what we could accomplish. His arrogance by appointing 32 leftist czars and
Constantly bypassing congress is impeachable. Eric Holder is probably the MOST
Incompetent and arrogant DOJ head to ever hold the job. Could you envision
President Reagan instructing his Justice Department to act like jack-booted thugs?
Presidents are politicians and all politicians are known and pretty much expected
To manipulate the truth, if not outright lie, but even using that low standard, the
Obama's have taken lies, dishonesty, deceit, mendacity, subterfuge and obfuscation
To new depths. They are verbally abusive to the citizenry, and they display an animus
For civility.

I do not like them, because they both display bigotry overtly, as in the case of Harvard
Professor Louis Gates, when he accused the Cambridge Police of acting stupidly, and
Her code speak pursuant to now being able to be proud of America. I view that statement
And that Mindset as an insult to those who died to provide a country where a Kenyan,
His illegal alien relatives, and his alleged progeny, could come and not only live freely,
But rise to the highest, most powerful, position in the world. Michelle Obama is free to
Hate and disparage whites because Americans of every description paid with their blood
To ensure her right to do same.
I have a saying, that "the only reason a person hides things, is because they have
Something to hide." No president in history has spent over a million dollars to keep
His records and his past sealed.

And what the two of them have shared has been proved to be lies. He lied about
When and how they met, he lied about his mother's death and problems with
Insurance, Michelle lied to a crowd pursuant to nearly $500,000 bank stocks they
Inherited from his family. He has lied about his father's military service, about the
Civil rights movement, ad nausea. He lied to the world about the Supreme Court in
A State of the Union address. He berated and publicly insulted a sitting Congressman.
He has surrounded himself with the most rabidly, radical, socialist academicians today.
He opposed rulings that protected women and children that even Planned Parenthood
Did not seek to support. He is openly hostile to business and aggressively hostile to Israel .
His wife treats being the First Lady as her personal American Express Black Card
(arguably the most prestigious credit card in the world). I condemn them because,
As people are suffering, losing their homes, their jobs, their retirements, he and his
Are arrogantly showing off their life of entitlement - as he goes about creating
And fomenting class warfare.

I don't like them, and I neither apologize nor retreat from my public condemnation
Of them and of his policies. We should condemn them for the disrespect they show
Our people, for his willful and unconstitutional actions pursuant to obeying the
Constitutional parameters he is bound by, and his willful disregard for Congressional authority.

Dislike for them has nothing to do with the color of their skin; it has everything
To do with their behavior, attitudes, and policies. And I have open scorn for their
Constantly playing the race card.

I could go on, but let me conclude with this. I condemn in the strongest possible
Terms the media for refusing to investigate them, as they did President Bush and
President Clinton, and for refusing to label them for what they truly are. There is
No scenario known to man, whereby a white president and his wife could ignore laws,
Flaunt their position, and lord over the people, as these two are permitted out of fear
for their color
As I wrote in a syndicated column titled, "Nero In The White House" -
"Never in my life, inside or outside of politics, have I witnessed such
Dishonesty in a political leader. He is the most mendacious political figure
I have ever witnessed. Even by the low standards of his presidential predecessors,
His narcissistic, contumacious arrogance is unequalled. Using Obama as the bar,
Nero would have to be elevated to sainthood... Many in America wanted to be proud
When the first person of color was elected president, but instead, they have been
Witness to a congenital liar, a woman who has been ashamed of America her entire
Life, failed policies, intimidation, and a commonality hitherto not witnessed in political
Leaders. He and his wife view their life at our expense as an entitlement -
while America 's people go homeless, hungry and unemployed.”
