I write to you today to urge you to reject the Republican's Pledge for America. First off, whats this "for America" garbage? That's not very self-aggrandizing...is it? What gives? Where's the self worship? Did they not learn anything from me? I put the ME in America!
There's also no personality behind it. For crying out loud I made women swoon for CHANGE (they didn't know I actually meant bus fare, but whatever).
That said here are a few reasons you need to reject the Pledge for America.
So there you have it America. I strongly suggest you consider these reasons, and by "strongly" I mean "don't make me get all Orwell up in here!" (Michelle came up with that one)
President Barack Obama
Oh yeah and God Bless Americcccccaaaaaa...GREAT! I just gacked all over my brand new golf balls. Thanks a lot America!
I guess I'm on an Obama-basketball kick today...but I'm not really sure if he plays basketball because he likes it...I really think he's trying to hide something else....
I can't quite put my finger on it....Add a comment
So liberals as usual had it wrong, apparently Recovery Summer was so last year...
The downturn officially ended, and the recovery officially began, in June 2009, according to an announcement Monday by the official arbiter of economic turning points. Since that point, total output — the amount of goods and services produced by the United States — has increased, as have many other measures of economic activity.
But nonfarm payrolls are still down 329,000 from their level at the recession’s official end 15 months ago, and the slow growth in recent months means that the unemployed still have a long slog ahead.

Before liberals start teaching Biden how to count so he wont be so confused at the concept of "high-five" I have a question that I know will leave me mighty perplexed as we enter into the fall and beyond and we are admonished it is Obama's policies that are improving things....
If the recession officially ended 4 months into Obama's presidency there there can't be any honest rationale that can be used to say any of his initiatives worked quickly enough to end it, right? So if economic growth remains anemic despite being in recovery...to what extent are Obama's policies getting in the way of such things?
In other words...are Obama's policies actually doing ANYTHING good?!?
The recession may officially be "over," but 82% of us apparently know better. That's because the job situation has remained virtually unchanged since the year before Obama kicked off this year's Recovery
Summer Bummer celebration.
How can businesses hire when they have to take money that would go for jobs, and give it to grabby Uncle Sam instead? Obama keeps saying he got us out of that freakin' ditch, and maybe that would at least feel believable if he wasn't trying to tow his proverbial car with the wet noodle of tax hikes to paper over his out-of-this-solar-system deficit spending.
But I'm just a blogger, so what do I know <------(psst).
I don't know, maybe I'm just being impatient, but it seems to me that there is driving, then there is driving with the parking brake on, and then there is clutching the steering wheel and screaming "VROOOOOOOOOM!" in a car with the engine missing.
I do know this, conservatives are tired of telling liberals who know absolutely nothing about economics (which is, by the way, practically scientific fact now) and get to be put in charge of money "I told you so" so much they sound like Rahm Emmanuel dropping f-bombs.Add a comment

Former President Jimmy Carter said Monday he sees parallels between today's tea party and his own campaign for the White House in 1976. But he doesn't think the movement will be much of a factor beyond this fall's elections.
The Georgia Democrat told The Associated Press he rode a wave of voter discontent to the presidency on the heels of the Vietnam War and the Watergate scandal that felled President Richard Nixon, much like tea party conservatives are now earning support by voicing anger at the nation's economic woes.
Check out the rest at Breitbart.
Seriously though, I think he might actually have a legitimate point, because I see the parallels too...
Thanks high school geometry!Add a comment
I know this has been passed around quite a bit already, but if you haven't seen this you're in for a special treat.
Well how 'bout that?
Ann Coulter put forth a "theory" on Obama's religious beliefs that I've held for sometime myself, that he is in fact probably either agnostic, or (as Ann has put it) is just flat out atheist.
America's problems aren't political, they are religious. The downward spiral of our gradually becoming more liberal on social issues is the symptom of that. I know there are a lot of conservatives who would disagree (much less liberals), but even David Patterson could see the direct correlation between our gradual turning from God, or at the very least His principles, and the growing violence in American society being coupled with our tolerance for the destructive social forces that cause it.
That's why its ridiculous to debate the politics of items such as gay marriage, and why even though I have a very concrete position on that issue I tend to stay out of it. If someone doesn't see the moral delinquency of same sex relationships you can't merely argue it out of them.
Only Christ can change their hearts on such matters.
His choice to selectively leave The Creator out of his quoting the Declaration of Independence was extremely intentional, I just wish I knew exactly what his intention was. Either it's to lead America out of what he perceives to be the crutch of Christianity, or maybe for him acknowledging God makes him more uncomfortable than Barney Frank taking his turn at "spin the bottle" in a sorority house.
In the end I don't care what it is, I've opposed his presidency since August 3, 1961, so its not like I need yet one more reason to throw him out on his ass two years from now...Add a comment
