Remember those who died for your freedom

Some stray thoughts, nothing really deep for the weekend. The overriding issue this weekend is that this IS Memorial Day Weekend. This IS a time to remember all who died in the service of this country, whether a World War, Vietnam, Gulf War or the current Iraq and Afghanistan campaigns.

These brave souls died in battle so that you could still have our Freedoms and The American Way of Life.

Here are some of the ways I found people are honoring all who died in the service of this country:

  • ROLLING THUNDER (sponsored by American Legion, among others) is in Washington DC to pay respect.
  • About 900,000 Americans will be in Washington DC this weekend to pay respects.
  • MEMORIAL DAY PROGRAM, hosted by the Harry White Wilmer American Legion Post 82.
  • NATIONAL SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA CONCERT, Jack Everly leads a musical salute and a special tribute on the 60th anniversary of the Korean War
  • 33RD ANNUAL MEMORIAL DAY JAZZ FESTIVAL, Jazz Ambassadors Dixieland Band, Joe Baione Trio, Al Williams, Larry Brown Quintet and Kaleidoscope Orchestra.
  • 66TH ANNUAL MEMORIAL DAY CEREMONY AND PARADE,
  • Almost   TOO MANY to list.

I saved the best highlight for last. Here is the Big Deal of the weekend to honor our Fallen Veterans, those who died for all our freedoms, those who died to give every natural born American an equal opportunity to be President, regardless of race, creed or religion.

  • Obama’s busy Memorial Day weekend: Arlington cemetery loses out

    The first family will spend Memorial Day weekend in Chicago, but Obama will make a day trip to the Gulf Coast on Friday.

Gee Whiz Golly

Um, I’m not sure if the MMS director was fired or resigned

Hello, who the hell is in charge here? Guess I really did not need to axe this question, as we all know the inmates are running the asylum.

Potus: “The buck stops here. I take full responsibility. (except for all the stuff that was Bush’s fault). Of course I was in charge. (except for all the stuff that was Bush’s fault) While the oil was shooting out of the ground for the past 30 days, I was thinking about solutions. (except for all the stuff that was Bush’s fault) Why, we had a meeting just today on that subject! (and decided that was Bush’s fault)”

With regard to MMS, POTUS blamed Bush.

REVELATION: Bush is responsible for the Oil Spill. That is a real problem, as POTUS can’t be responsible for the leftover stuff from the Past Administration. Guess Louisiana and Mississippi and Alabama and Florida and Georgia and South Carolina and North Carolina and Virgina and Maryland and Delaware and New Jersey and New York is just shit out of luck.

but we have our boots on the neck of BP to make sure they pay, pay, pay and pay some more.

Gee Whiz, Golly… We ain’t in Kansas nomore, Toto
 

Obama Pays Lack of Respect to Veterans

According to POTUS Obama the Impotent Pantywaist Surrender Monkey*, spending time with “old friends” (like Bill Ayers and Wade Rathke, maybe?) is more important than honoring a tradition of Presidents speaking at Arlington Cemetery on Memorial Day.

Also, he will be speaking at the Lincoln National Cemetery. Why? To be “closer” to the Patriot he has likened himself to?

Let me check the ways POTUS is like Lincoln.

  1. He is tall
  2. His is skinny
  3. He has long legs.

Lincoln never let the world forget that the Civil War involved an even larger issue. This he stated most movingly in dedicating the military cemetery at Gettysburg: “that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain–that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom–and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.”

Obama never lets the world and America forget how our time is past, and we need to  “press for a new international order” and maybe change our beliefs while we are surrendering our freedom? He stated most movingly: “Call to Islamic prayer is ‘one of the prettiest sounds on Earth at sunset.’”

Oops. Maybe you noticed a difference here?

President Lincoln was a great patriot and defender of freedom.

POTUS Obama the Impotent Pantywaist Surrender Monkey, on the other hand, seems to hate America and is doing everything possible to restrict our Freedoms, destroy our Heritage and enslave our children and grand children to long term servitude to the government.

Biden quote "This is a BIG (bleep)ING DEAL"

Reading Moe Lane’s blog in Red State about Joe Sestak reminded me of a conversation Shirley and I have had over the past few days. Fortunately, we never wholeheartedly disagree with each other, as relatively minor disagreements have sent cats scurrying and brought out the neighbors.

We are in agreement on one thing, though. To quote Moe Lane, ” Joe Sestak’s (D) admitting that the White House tried to bribe him reflects well on Sestak. Either Sestak is lying about this, in which case he’s, well, a liar who did so for crass political gain; or Sestak’s telling the truth about this, in which case he’s pretty much explicitly participating in a cover-up of a felony.” (Emphasis is mine.)

Yes, it is a big deal. In fact, it is such a big deal, Rep. Joe Sestak (D) should be denied seating in Congress until he either admits he LIED TO GET ELECTED, or NAMES PEOPLE, PLACES, TIMES AND OFFERS MADE.

Am I thinking like a Dimocrat?

Here is Connecticut Attorney General and Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate Richard Blumenthal. He did serve as a military reserve during Vietnam. Nothing wrong with staying as far away from the action as one can, it’s a great job if you can get it. \\\So did a bunch of other draft dodgers\\\

He claims he was not really clear that when he said he served in Vietnam, he really meant he did NOT serve in Vietnam, but would have if it had not been for his obligations to stay as far away from the action as legally possible.

He now claims he is sorry. This is one Dimocrat I can agree with. Does that mean I am starting to think like a Dimocrat?

No, I just happen to agree with him that he really is a sorry individual.

POTUS vs Arizona

What is the penalty for an elected or an appointed official to refuse to honor their oaths of office? It depends. From what I can find, the constitution and amendments were signed by representatives of the several states and therefore are a contract between the States and the Federal government. Since the people of the various states were not included in the contract (their contracts being with the State), there may not be recourse by individuals to a federal official, such as the President, an appointed Federal officer or member of Congress who refuses to uphold the oath of office. 

There may also not be a violation of the Oath of Office if one is not demanded to comply with the letter and intent of the sworn oath of office.

However, if a State demands that certain actions required by the Constitution or Federal statute be taken by an Elected or Appointed Official, and that person refuses to do as demanded by the States, then that person would be in violation of their Oath of Office and would be subject to removal from office and penalty, jail or both.

Where am I going with this? Well, Arizona has passed a law requiring persons not legally permitted to be in the United States and in violation of Federal immigration laws be turned over to the Federal authorities for deportation. In effect, the State of Arizona is DEMANDING that your elected and appointed Federal officials fulfill their oath of office to uphold the law of the land. At this point, certain federal officials have stated they would not fulfill their obligation to uphold federal immigration laws as demanded by the State of Arizona.

According to published reports, 17 additional states at this time are also discussing enacting similar legislation.

If Arizona and various other States demand compliance with existing Federal immigration statutes and POTUS Obama the Impotent Pantywaist Surrender Monkey* does not order his czar-minions to enforce the Constitution and existing Federal legislation, he then is technically in violation of his Oath of Office and is subject to immediate removal from office and subject to criminal penalties including both fine and jail.

Well, okay FOX News, where are you on this? In fact, where are all the conservative press and defenders of your Freedom on this?

Progressiver and Progressiver

Seems like every morning I wake up to a new chapter in the cannibalization of America. Each day hearkens new words of delusional and delirious meanderings from POTUS Obama The Impotent Pantywaist.

The word parser supreme is today telling West Point graduates, the bright and unblemished future leaders of our Armed Forces, the best of the best soldiers in the world, that “[t]here will be no simple moment of surrender to mark the journey’s end — no armistice or banner headline.”

Instead of American Sovereignty,  to quote news reports, “President Obama on Saturday vowed to press for a new international order that can resolve the challenges of our times and help the United States defeat Al Qaeda and other threats to freedom. Obama ticked off a list of lofty goals this new order could accomplish; from combating violent extremism to stopping the spread of nuclear weapons to stemming climate change and sustaining global growth.”

Obviously, he speaks from his first hand experience spending our economy into oblivion, while advising Greece on economic restraint and consulting with China on our Human Rights agenda.

I wanted to show a picture of POTUS Obama The Impotent Pantywaist telling carefully parsed moon-beam lies about how weak our Country is, but the only ones I could find only show his nose holes pointing at us. I quit counting boogers when I was 5.

Just send me another pill for another day. Even the “conservative” and “fair and balanced” press is now not bothering to call out this poor excuse for President and tell us the truth about his agenda, lies and goals to destroy our country as we know it.

I am beginning to believe that people who are stupid enough to blog and twit their credit card purchases on  social groups do not have the sense to self-govern. We as a country are going to get what we deserve if we do not stand up, back our conservative candidates and throw all the current progressive movement out of office.

Take back our country. If you are in office, you are out. I encourage all who possible can to get out and vote. Vote out the incumbents, whoever they are, regardless of the party they belong to. And don’t stop with the Federal level. Retire state, local and school incumbents as well. 

God bless our country.

“While the people retain their virtue and vigilance, no administration, by any extreme of wickedness or folly, can very seriously injure the government in the short span of four years.” — Abraham Lincoln, “First Inaugural Address” (March 4, 1861).
