Psalm 2009

I think I might have posted this before, but it bares repeating.

Obama is the shepherd I did not want.
He leadeth me beside the still factories.
He restoreth my faith in the Republican party.
He guideth me in the path of unemployment for his party’s sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the bread line,
I shall fear no hunger, for his bailouts are with me.
He has anointed my income with taxes, my expenses runneth over.
Surely, poverty and hard living will follow me all the days of my life, and I will live in a mortgaged home forever.

Are you ‘Undermining The Country’ too?
by Eric Odom

I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again… Democrats are making a terrible political miscalculation by blasting the majority of Americans for opposing Obamacare.

The Democrats are a Political Party that has lied to the people in a claim that it’s for “the little guy” and it will work to remove special interest from the political process. The reality is that Democrats have represented special interest and big money at a record pace.

Which explains why they’re now trying to attack anyone who opposes them.

HOWARD DEAN: When I was growing up in this country, Republicans and Democrats could actually sit down and have a sane conversation. You might not agree but you could get stuff done. This Republican party—this shrinking Republican party—is just determined to undermine President Obama. And unfortunately, you have to undermine the country in order to undermine the president. I think that’s too bad.

Did you catch that? According to Howard Dean, you have to undermine the country in order to undermine the President’s surge towards Socialism?

See the whole thing here.

Seriously, I’m starting to question the sanity of the Democrats!  Do they truly want to destroy this country?  Is this what they want?  For people to live in excessive poverty, perhaps WORSE than any Banana Republic?  They say misery loves company.  Do they want EVERYONE to be miserable with them?  Cuz obviously, they must be miserable.  No happy person wants to tear down their home.  And this country IS our home, you know.  So, just because some folks are too freakin’ lazy to work hard for what they need/want/have, the rest of the country should just hand over what they  have earned?  I don’t bloody well think so!   This isn’t about health care,  the insurance companies, or anything else they would like to plaster it with in their ‘talking points’.  This is about POWER and CONTROL!  Over YOUR life!

If THIS….

Got some pictures this morning of tiny 2.6 pound Carson!  Proud grandpa is obviously crowing.  :D

Carson 3

It just breaks my heart that he has all those wires and tubes. Very reminiscent of when Brat was born. It makes you feel quite helpless. Obviously, Brat made a grand recovery, since she’s almost an old woman now, and I’m quite confident this little guy will do just as well, if not a whole lot better! He’s got a LOT of folks sending up prayers for him and Mommy.

The ‘Battle’ Continues

Glenn Beck goes after Color of Change co-founder Van Jones

Glenn Beck used his popular Fox News show this afternoon to attack the background of Van Jones, a White House environmental advisor who co-founded an African American political advocacy group that organized an advertising boycott of his program.

Is this clown from Africa? No? Then he’s not African-American.

During his 2 p.m. PDT show, Beck did not address the boycott spearheaded by Color of Change to protest the talk show host’s remark last month that he believes President Obama is “a racist.”

Why should he point out the idiots?  And for the record, Obama IS a racist.  Perhaps not in the typical sense, but he’s so very divisive, how else would you label him?

Instead, he spent a large share of his program suggesting that Jones, who co-founded Color of Change in 2005, is a radical. Jones now serves as a special advisor for Green Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation at the White House Council on Environmental Quality.

Suggesting?  No, Glenn flat out nailed the clown to the wall.  There’s no ‘suggesting’.  Jones IS a racial leftist loony tune, avowed Communist.

During a six-minute biographical profile, set to ominous music, Beck said Jones was twice arrested for political protests and has described himself as a “rowdy black nationalist.” The talk show host cast the piece as part of a broader examination of Obama’s “czars,” special advisers to the president who “don’t answer to anybody.”

Should we just follow along, accepting these ‘czars’, like the left?  No, I don’t think so.  I’m looking forward to learning as much as possible about these appointed dictators.

“Why is it that such a committed revolutionary has made it so high into the Obama administration as one of his chief advisers?” Beck asked.

REAL good question.  As I’ve said many times, “a man is known by the company he keeps”.  This is the company that Obama keeps, and it speaks volumes about HIM!

Christine Glunz, a spokeswoman for the White House Council on Environmental Quality, noted that Jones has been lauded as an environmental hero and said his entire focus is on “building clean energy incentives which create 21st-century jobs.”

Lauded by whom?  More leftists?  Sorry, that doesn’t put my mind to rest.

“Glenn Beck is trying to change the subject,” said James Rucker, executive director of Color of Change, who noted that Jones has not been active with the group in almost two years. “The issue is his baseless fear mongering.”

No, he’s doing his best to inform people they NEED to know about this administration, which the lame stream media WON’T.  Since when it truth fear mongering?  Kind of pathetic on their part, IMHO.

While the advertising boycott has generated substantial media coverage, Fox News said it has not impacted the network’s revenues or Beck’s audience. “The advertisers referenced have all moved their spots from Beck to other programs on the network so there has been no revenue lost,” a spokeswoman said.

If these businesses had any sense, they’d ignore the moonbats.  Trust me, they are only going to harm their own businesses, and aren’t businesses in it ‘for the money”?  And who has money to spend right now?  Why, it would people who actually WORK for a living.  And what do most of those common sense workers watch?  Well, that would be Fox News.  Y’see, more and more people are getting the BIG picture.  Even people who wear a ‘D’, are finding that the alphabet news aren’t giving the full story.  No, those folks are drooling acolytes, just like that goofy woman who didn’t think she’d have to pay her bills if BHO was elected.

The controversy has triggered a broader discussion about the risks to advertisers of running commercials amid the incendiary rhetoric of cable talk shows. Clorox announced last week that it was pulling its ads off all political talk shows.

That’s ok.  I never thought Clorox worked all that well anyway.  I don’t mind buying other brands.

“We do not want to be associated with inflammatory speech used by either liberal or conservative talk show host,” the company said in a statement. “After a comprehensive review of political talks shows across the spectrum, at this time we have made a decision not to advertise on them. Clorox has done very little advertising on political talk shows overall, and given the sometimes inflammatory nature of these shows, we feel our advertising investment is best directed elsewhere.”

Are they pulling their ads from MSNBC, CNN, HLN, Bloomberg, etc?  No NBC, CBS, ABC?  Dang!  Are they planning on advertising on the TNT, USA type of channels?

All in all, these advertisers who have decided that they can’t spend their advertising dollars on news/opinion shows are proving their political bent, which evidently, is quite left.  Rather sad.  They are folding to a small minority of the American public, to their detriment
