This Is Scary...

This is an e-mail I received from a cousin of mine and I think it is scary enough (and possibly true) to pass along...or it could be if we don't do something to change it!

Thought you all might find this interesting. I did. Dorothy

Pretty interesting statistics.

Subject: How long do we have?

How Long Do We Have?

About the time our original thirteen states adopted their new constitution in 1787, Alexander Tyler, a Scottish history professor at the University of Edinburgh , had this to say about the fall of the Athenian Republic some 2,000 years earlier:

"A democracy is always temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent form of government."

"A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury."

"From that moment on, the majority always vote for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally collapse due to loose fiscal policy, which is always followed by a dictatorship."

"The average age of the world's greatest civilizations from the beginning of history, has been about 200 years."

"During those 200 years, those nations always progressed through the following sequence:

1. from bondage to spiritual faith; 2. from spiritual faith to great courage; 3. from courage to liberty; 4. from liberty to abundance; 5. from abundance to complacency ; 6. from complacency to apathy; 7. from apathy to dependence; 8. From dependence back into bondage"

Professor Joseph Olson of Hamline University School of Law, St. Paul , Minnesota , points out some interesting facts concerning the 2000 Presidential election:

Number of States won by: Gore: 19; Bush: 29

Square miles of land won by: Gore: 580,000; Bush: 2,427,000

Population of counties won by: Gore: 127 million; Bush: 143 million Murder rate per 100,000 residents in counties won by: Gore: 13.2; Bush: 2.1

Professor Olson adds: "In aggregate, the map of the territory Bush won was mostly the land owned by the taxpaying citizens of this great country. Gore's territory mostly encompassed those citizens living in government-owned tenements and living off various forms of government welfare..."

Olson believes the United States is now somewhere between the "complacency and apathy" phase of Professor Tyler's definition of democracy, with some forty percent of the nation's population already having reached the "governmental dependency" phase.

If Congress grants amnesty and citizenship to twenty million criminal invaders called illegal's and they vote, then we can say goodbye to the USA in fewer than five years.

Pass this along to help everyone realize just how much is at stake, knowing that apathy is the greatest danger to our freedom.

Scary, Ain't It? Here is a link to the AFA web page. They have some good ideas. Now, let's get busy and do something about this!

James Dobson...Foot in Mouth...

It seems Dr James Dobson, the leader of Focus On the Family, a man I greatly admire for his work, has pretty well succeeded in puting his foot in his mouth. He made a remark saying he does not think Fred Thompson is a Christian.

Sorry, Doctor, Senator is certainly a Christian.

"Mark Corallo, a spokesman for Thompson, took issue with Dobson's characterization of the former Tennessee senator. "Thompson is indeed a Christian," he said. "He was baptized into the Church of Christ."

Whether or not the Senator is a Christian may not be important to some but to people like me who are Christians, it means a lot. We know Christians are honest, fair and honorable people.

I called the Focus on the Family web page today and told the people there in no uncertain terms that I thought Dr. Dobson had used very poor judgment in making such an unstantiated remark about Senator Thompson! They were polite and courteous to me and thanked me for my call and insured me they would make Dr. Dobson aware of my call.

Now it's up to Dr. Dobson to issue a statement admitting he was wrong.

For me, Senator Thompson is the right man for us Republicans. The more I check on him and his voting record, the more impressed I am with him.

All of you who agree, let's get behind him so we can get a really good man in the office of President of the United States!

Fred Thompson for President?--Why not...

"Thompson Takes Bites Out of Giuliani, Romney..."

I certainly hope so! I speak of retired Conservative Republican Senator Fred Thompson. If some of you aren't familiar with him, he is the new District Attorney on the Law and Order program on TV.

Here's a photo of him.

And here are a few of his votes on crucial issues for you to consider with a link to his voting record site.

# Voted NO on adding sexual orientation to definition of hate crimes. (Jun 2002)
# Voted NO on loosening restrictions on cell phone wiretapping. (Oct 2001)
# Voted NO on expanding hate crimes to include sexual orientation. (Jun 2000)
# Voted NO on setting aside 10% of highway funds for minorities & women. (Mar 1998)
# Voted NO on ending special funding for minority & women-owned business. (Oct 1997)
# Voted YES on prohibiting same-sex marriage. (Sep 1996)
# Voted NO on prohibiting job discrimination by sexual orientation. (Sep 1996)
# Voted YES on Amendment to prohibit flag burning. (Dec 1995)
# Voted YES on limiting death penalty appeals. (Apr 1996),br> # Voted YES on limiting product liability punitive damage awards. (Mar 1996)
# Voted YES on restricting class-action lawsuits. (Dec 1995)
# Voted YES on repealing federal speed limits. (Jun 1995)

For my part, this is the best man of all the candidates, Republican or Democrat!(he's not one yet but he should be)He has great family values and good ideas on taxes, health care and just about everything else. If you agree, e-mail him and encourage him to run for the office of President of this Country.

There are 'Draft Fred Thompson' sites out there and they are busy! Here's a link to one.

I like this man. I think he is a good person and would make a fine president. I hope, if you feel the same way, you'll support him! Let's get it going and save this country!

Well, 'Duh', Mr President...

This is really funny. This Iranian Asshole has threatened to kill us, shoot us and nuke us and our President still felt compelled to let him have a visa to come into this country.

"U.S. will give visa to Iranian president..."

Well, guess what? I guess George loves to be slapped in the face!

"Iran's President Cancels U.N. Appearance"

The Iranian leader say he doesn't want to come after all!! Now, that's funny!!


Naive?...Who 'Dat?...

One entry found for naive.
Main Entry: na•ive
Variant(s): or na•ïve /nä-'Ev, nI-/
Function: adjective
Inflected Form(s): na•iv•er; -est
Etymology: French naïve, feminine of naïf, from Old French, inborn, natural, from Latin nativus native
1 : marked by unaffected simplicity : ARTLESS, INGENUOUS
2 a : deficient in worldly wisdom or informed judgment; especially : CREDULOUS b : not previously subjected to experimentation or a particular experimental situation ; also : not having previously used a particular drug (as marijuana) c : not having been exposed previously to an antigen
3 a : SELF-TAUGHT, PRIMITIVE b : produced by or as if by a self-taught artist
4. George Bush.

WHOOAH!? Is that what it really says? Well, almost. The numbers down to 3 are as it reads but number 4 should be in the book, as well, because that is what our President is: Naïve!

Below are some quotes from a Bush speech. They say, among other things, terrorists are different from other Muslims; Other Muslims are nice, not radical like the fringe.

Well, Mr. President, how many Muslims, here or overseas, broke down and wept for the US when the ‘Terrorists’ killed so many people on September 11th? I don’t remember seeing even one!

Now how many celebrated? They all did! It’s too bad people like me who actually research Islam and know all of them are terrorists to everyone who are not cannot convince Mr. Bush of that truth!

The terrorists practice a fringe form of Islamic extremism that has been rejected by Muslim scholars and the vast majority of Muslim clerics; a fringe movement that perverts the peaceful teachings of Islam.

‘oops’…#1. The terrorists are not a “Fringe” form of Islam. #2…There are no “peaceful teachings” of Islam.

The terrorists' directive commands them to kill Christians and Jews,to kill all Americans and make no distinctions among military and civilians, including women and children. This group and its leader, a person named Osama bin Laden, are linked to many other organizations in different countries, including the Egyptian Islamic Jihad, the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan.

The Islamic scripture is: Dinner Table 5:51. ..” [5.51] O you who believe! do not take the Jews and the Christians for friends; they are friends of each other; and whoever amongst you takes them for a friend, then surely he is one of them; surely Allah does not guide the unjust people. “

And it doesn’t exclude anyone. Not me and not you. Even the so called Black Muslims will understand before this is over.

Good luck to all of us; We're gonna need it!

Go Figure...

I got a response to my last post. I pointed out: Nancy Pelosi says no one should be permitted to make a profit off stock market investments:

She says all profits should be confiscated by the government and given to the un-employed, minorities and illegal immigrants:

She says everyone earning under a certain amount should pay no taxes:

She says the rich (probably anyone earning over $60,000) should pay all taxes to the support of people on welfare, minorities, un-employed and illegal immigrants.

She says 12 million illegal aliens should be supported in the manner of a working class American by our taxes:

She sounds exactly like Karl Marx and Joseph Stalin, et al; a died-in-the-wool communist!

There is a lot more to it and it's all pretty scary.

The response I got through an e-mail from a relative was, in essence, "Please don't bother me with the details. I'm a Democrat and that's all there is to it!"

Well, go figure. Maybe I scare more easily than Democrats.

Insanity Personified : Nancy Pelosi, the Stupidest Woman in America!...

Folks, I have seen and heard crazy things in my time but never anything that even comes close to this diatribe of Nancy Pelosi, the Speaker of the House of Representatives! This woman is dangerous to our Country!

Below are some quotes from her and a brief comment by me on each quote.

Nancy Pelosi condemned the new record highs of the stock market as "just another example of Bush policies helping the rich get richer". "First Bush cut taxes for the rich and the economy has rebounded with new record low unemployment rates, which only means wealthy employers are getting even wealthier at the expense of the underpaid working class".
She is complaining because Bush cut taxes , the stock market (I have some money there) is rebounding and more people are employed! ‘duh’

She went on to say "Despite the billions of dollars being spent in Iraq our economy is still strong and government tax revenues are at all time highs. What this really means is that business is exploiting the war effort and working Americans, just to put money in their own pockets".

So far, if she would just stop talking just before she finishes her paragraph, she’d be right on!

EG: …First Bush cut taxes for the rich and the economy has rebounded with new record low unemployment rates…---and:…---“… our economy is still strong and government tax revenues are at all time highs.”

Hold it right there, Ms Pelosi and you’ll have it right!

Wait! You ain’t heard nothing yet!

When questioned about recent stock market highs she responded "Only the rich benefit from these record highs. Working Americans, welfare recipients, the unemployed and minorities are not sharing in these obscene record highs". "There is no question these windfall profits and income created by the Bush administration need to be taxed at 100% rate and those dollars redistributed to the poor and working class". "Profits from the stock market do not reward the hard work of our working class who, by their hard work, are responsible for generating these corporate profits that create stock market profits for the rich. We in congress will need to address this issue to either tax these profits or to control the stock market to prevent this unearned income to flow to the rich."

Can you believe this woman? She has just advocated Communism for the US!

(need to be taxed at 100% rate and those dollars redistributed to the poor and working class)That means no one could invest anything in the stock market because the Government would take all the profits and give them to people who don't invest at all!

I wonder if she realizes what she said. I doubt it. No one should be that dense!

When asked about the fact that over 80% of all Americans have investments in mutual funds, retirement funds, 401K's, and the stock market she replied "That may be true, but probably only 5% account for 90% of all these investment dollars. That's just more "trickle down" economics claiming that if a corporation is successful that everyone from the CEO to the floor sweeper benefit from higher wages and job security which is ridiculous". "How much of this 'trickle down' ever get to the unemployed and minorities in our county? None, and that's the tragedy of these stock market highs."

I tell you, folks, if I didn’t know Ms Pelosi was serious, I’d laugh about the stupidity of what she is saying!
Wait, it ain’t over yet! There’s more!

"We democrats are going to address this issue after the election when we take control of the congress. We will return to the 60% to 80% tax rates on the rich and we will be able to take at least 30% of all current lower Federal Income Tax tax payers off the roles and increase government income substantially. We need to work toward the goal of equalizing income in our country and at the same time limiting the amount the rich can invest."

Now you’d think that is about as stupid as a person can get but don’t stop reading; not yet.

When asked how these new tax dollars would be spent, she replied, "We need to raise the standard of living of our poor, unemployed and minorities. For example, we have an estimated 12 million illegal immigrants in our country who need our help along with millions of unemployed minorities. Stock market windfall profits taxes could go a long ways to guarantee these people the standard of living they would like to have as "Americans".

Remember, the Democrats think anyone who earns over $60,000 a year is "rich". Folks, if you have read this and are still not scared half to death by this person, then there is no hope for you. Everything she said goes against everything this free country stands for.

Something needs to be done about this woman! She has got to go! Get busy with your phone calls, letters and e-mails to your Reps and lets let our Government, "Of the People, For the People and By the People" know how we feel about Ms Pelosi’s idea of destroying all we hold dear!

If we don’t do it, it won’t get done!!!

Barack Obama...Coming Home...

In Selma, Obama Appeals to Black Voters

Obama said he was not surprised when it was reported this week that his white ancestors on his mother's side owned slaves. "That's no surprise in America," he said and added that his mother's family was inspired by the unity in the Selma marches. "If it hasn't been for Selma, I wouldn't be here," Obama said. "This is the site of my conception. I am the fruits of your labor. I am the offspring of the movement. When people ask me if I've been to Selma before, I tell them I'm coming home." At the breakfast, Obama got a key to the city and another to the county from a probate judge, Kim Ballard. "Forty-two years ago he might would have needed it because I understand it would open the jail cells," Ballard said. "But not today."

"...When people ask me if I've been to Selma before, I tell them I'm coming home."

Home to where his ancestors owned slaves; his black slave ancestors and his white slave owner ancestors.

Barack Obama has had a lot to say to blacks and very little to say to whites ever since he decided to run for the office of President. Soon he will realize what he has been doing and revert to his politician's image. And he'll depend on the stupidity of white America to not understand just how much he will be for the blacks first and whites next if he is elected President.

I pray I am not so far above average that I am the only one to see this man's true 'colors'.

Is this man, who has and will always think of black Americans first when he must make an important decision about this Nation, the man we want to lead us in this time of Muslim terrorism and racially biased blacks such as Jesse Jackson, Louis Farrakhan and the Congressional Black Caucus (and OJ Simpson and Kobe Bryant) already in positions of special privilege or power?

That should be a no-brainer. I certainly don't and I cannot see where any clear thinking American, white or black, would want this man as our leader.
