National Day of Prayer

The President announced this day of prayer on Friday shortly after declaring the United States was in a state of emergency over the fast-spreading virus.

In our times of greatest need, Americans have always turned to prayer to help guide us through trials and periods of uncertainty. As we continue to face the unique challenges posed by the coronavirus pandemic, millions of Americans are unable to gather in their churches, temples, synagogues, mosques, and other houses of worship. But in this time we must not cease asking God for added wisdom, comfort, and strength, and we must especially pray for those who have suffered harm or who have lost loved ones. I ask you to join me in a day of prayer for all people who have been affected by the coronavirus pandemic and to pray for God’s healing hand to be placed on the people of our Nation.

President Donald J Trump

I would just like to add that …

I do hope the media and some of our smaller-minded politicians (wherever they fall on the political spectrum) can put aside politics, the hate, and the hyper-partisan bickering and come together to work toward resolving this national crisis. I believe far too many are doing much more harm than good!

And for Pete Sakes, enough with the toilet paper hoarding!

All Praise Obama’s Recipe for Disaster

It is hard to imagine an administration that is so corrupt, so incompetent, so dishonest, and so intent on getting re-elected at any cost than Obama’s!  Obama is spending  $4 million to vacation in Hawaii ( and yes, Michelle is travelling on a separate flight with her entourage), while still pushing his class-warfare mantra of “tax the rich).   Again, I ask the same old question. What gives liberals the right to steal  from those who have worked hard and succeeded and give it to those have not; at least without first doing all it can to rein in wasteful government spending?   

What wasteful spending you might ask?  Well, here are a few examples of the financial fiasco that is Barack Obama’s administration.

  • The U.S. gave China $17.8 million for economic development and social services.  Of course, we first borrowed the money from China.  So we are paying interest on money we borrowed from China to give to China?  Even you liberals ought to see the stupidity in that transaction.

That should be enough by itself, but here are a few more:

  • $100,000 to fund a study of why chimpanzees fling their feces (maybe because they can … Duh!).
  • $10 million was spent to produce a version of Sesame Street for Pakistan (Why?).
  • $75,000 to promote awareness about the role Michigan plays in producing Christmas trees & poinsettias (Just don’t display any of them on public property … you may get arrested).
  • $15.3 million for one of the infamous Bridges to Nowhere in Alaska (No wonder Sarah resigned as governor!).
  • $113,227 for a video game preserve in New York (I was unaware video games were endangered).
  • $35 million for political party conventions in 2012.
  • $550,000 for a documentary about how rock music contributed to the collapse of the Soviet Union.
  • $48,700 for the 2nd annual Hawaii Chocolate Festival to promote Hawaii’s chocolate industry (The government has to convince people to by their chocolate … must be pretty bad chocolate!).
  • $350,000 to support an International Art Exhibition in Venice, Italy (Great, but not their job.)
  • $765,825 to study how college students use mobile devices for social networking (Really?)

And my personal fav:

  • $765,828 to subsidize “pancakes for yuppies” in the nation’s capital (Can you say “blatant vote buying?” I knew you could!).

As long as Obama, Pelosi, Biden, and Reid are wasting (oops … my bad; spending) taxpayer money like this … they have no justification to raise taxes on anybody!!!

On a side note: 

We finally have peace in Iraq thanks to the brilliant leadership of our Messiah and peerless leader, the 4th greatest president in the history of our nation, Barack Obama.  The troops are home and all is well.  Except we just created a power vacuum in Iraq that Iran will be extremely happy to fill. 

A clue for the clueless: This morning, a series of coordinated bomb explosions in Baghdad killed at least 63 and injured perhaps 185 more.  These were car bombs and improvised explosive devices (IEDs). 

This morning’s carnage is clearly an effort by radical Islamists backed by Iran (who manufactures most of the IDEs by the way) to destabilize and overturn Iraq’s fragile democratic government. Iraq’s fragile democracy is on its own; now only protected by a fledgling national security force. 

Why?  Because Obama, in a move coldly calculated to increase his ratings in the polls and help his re-election bid at the cost of Iraq’s new government and the lives of American service men who died there, … rushed to bring the “troops home for Christmas.”   Of course, the liberal spin doctors and their media lackeys are proclaiming it a U.S. victory and praising Obama for his courage and leadership.  A whole slew of pompous ceremonies have been planned to celebrate the “end” of the war.

In a calculated, twisted sort of way, it was a brilliant political move.  I mean, everyone wants the troops home … don’t they!  But I predict that the premature withdrawal of American forces from Iraq will lead to many, many more deaths and much more destruction down the road.  Just wait and see …

1 Out Of 100 Americans Are Criminals

1 Out Of 100 Americans Are In Prison

Wow! One in one hundred Americans are in prison according to the recently released Pew Center on the state’s report. That is about 2, 319, 000 Americans. That makes the U.S. the number one criminal incarcerating nation of the world. according to the report, behind China and Russia. Thats just awful, unless of course, those 2, 319,000 chose to break the law.

Folks, you do have a choice here! You do not have to break the law! I know … Oh Crap … here he goes with the personal responsibility thing again!

And yes, there are some innocent people in our prisons … we know that. It is not a perfect system like China’s or Russia’s prison system. We should pattern our prison system after theirs, don’t you think? It would certainly lower the number of Americans that are incarcerated.

Chinese Prison

For some crimes, in China they just shoot you and then bill your family for the bullet. That certainly cuts down on the need for beds in prisons … doesn’t it.

According to World Fact Book of Criminal Justice Systems, the legal system of the People’s Republic of China is typically Marxist. As declared under the first article of the Criminal Law, Marxist -Leninist – Mao Zedong Thought are the guiding principles of the present law.

The legislators in the People’s Republic of China view laws,especially criminal laws, as the tool of the ruling class (synonymous with the state), to be used as a coercive force to repress the ruled. The criminal law represents the interests of the ruling class, which defines certain acts as crime. Hmmm … we need that thinking here … sounds like its right down Hillary Clinton’s alley!

Russian Prison

Or … maybe we should pattern our prison system after Russia’s! According to BBC correspondent, Emma Simpson, Russia jails a greater proportion of its people than any other major country; apart from the America that is.

According to the latest figures from the Russian Government, there are 829,000 people serving prison sentences. Conditions are extremely harsh. Many of these old Soviet era institutions are crumbling and badly under-funded. Prisoners also stand a strong chance of becoming seriously ill. Despite some progress, Russian prisons remain a breeding ground for disease. More than 50,000 inmates have tuberculosis, there are 35,000 people with HIV and there are nearly 90,000 drug addicts.

Sounds wonderful … maybe some of our inmates would like to transfer!

Seriously, folks. In America … you do have a choice! You do not have to go to prison. You can live your life obeying the laws of this country. If people choose to break the law, whether it be 50 people or 2,319,000, they should be in prison, albeit for varying lengths of time depending on the crime. People who decide to break the law and then whine and complain because they have to face the punishment get no sympathy from me!

American Prisons

Do you want to keep more Americans out of our prisons? Then stop teaching our kids that there is no such thing as right and wrong. Instead, we should be teaching them that there is such a thing as moral and/or immoral behavior, … it is not all relative! Make them go out side and play tag, sandlot baseball, backyard basketball … whatever … learn some social skills … and stop them from staying inside all day long playing violent video games like Grand Theft Auto, Doom, Killer 7, and God of War!

Grand Theft Auto

Thought I would just mention that, on the other side of the coin, the Department of Justice’s data show that as our prisons have filled, crime rates plummeted.

Speaking of Criminal

Did you know that the “Christian” church that Barack Obama attends in Chicago, Trinity United Church of Christ, presented Louis Farrakhan, the leader of the Black Muslim group, Nation of Islam, with the Rev. Jeremiah Wright Man Of The Year Award?

World Trade Center

Or …that the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, on September 12, 2001, stated that it was the fault of the United States that terrorists flew civilian airliners into the World Trade Center

Erik Rush

Sean Hannity stated that “many” call Trinity “separatist,” adding that “in some cases, even drawing comparisons to a cult.” Guest Erik Rush, a columnist for the conservative website WorldNetDaily, said that the church’s “scary doctrine” is something that you’d see in a cult or a extreme right-wing Aryan Brethren Church or something similar to that.

Erik Rush went on to say,”I would go beyond saying that they’re Afrocentric. They’re African-centric. They refer to themselves as an African people, and that somewhat disturbs me from the viewpoint of, well, do they consider themselves Americans? Do they consider themselves Christians? Are they worshiping Christ? Are they worshiping African things black?”

Is it a Christan church, or a huge black nationalist church? The pastor, Rev. Jeremiah Wright, unabashedly preaches a “black” gospel. This is an excerpt from one of Rev. Wright’s sermons:

  • “Fact number one: We’ve got more black men in prison than there are in college,” he intones.
  • “Fact number two: Racism is how this country was founded and how this country is still run!”
  • “We are deeply involved in the importing of drugs, the exporting of guns and the training of professional KILLERS. . .
  • “We believe in white supremacy and black inferiority and believe it more than we believe in God. . . . We conducted radiation experiments on our own people. . . . We care nothing about human life if the ends justify the means!”

The crowd whoops and amens as Wright builds to his climax:

  • “And … And … And! GAWD! Has GOT! To be SICK! OF THIS SHIT!”

This certainly doesn’t sound like any Church I have ever worshiped in, but then again, perhaps I have led a sheltered life.

Sean Hannity’s co-host Alan Colmes asked: “Are you questioning Barack Obama’s Christianity?”

Rush responded simply: “Yeah.”
