FLOTUS, Melanie Trump, Wears Spike Heels to Texas

FLOTUS Wears Spike Heels to View Texas Damage … Left-wing Media in a Tither!

Spike heels … are you kidding? Of course you can see from the photograph, she must have somehow found time to change from Spike Heels into sneakers on the flight down from Andrews AFB.  It is obviously hard for the left-wing media to believe that the First Lady would be capable of such a daunting task! I mean, change her shoes? What was she thinking. Left-wing pundits are obsessed with the state of her shoes while the rest of America worries about the rescue efforts and what will be needed to rebuild!

It is just another piece of evidence as to how political the media has become and how it has, in fact, become an enemy of the American People. As I have posted in the past, a Free Press is certainly a vital part of a free and democratic society. The lest-wing media simply continues to prove time and time again that it is not a Free Press. It is the propaganda wing of the Democratic Left-wingers and Progressives.

Mean While … In the Real World!

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott had high praise for President Donald Trump and the federal government for its response to Hurricane Harvey, describing it as  “A-plus.” This effort is only just beginning. It will be a long haul because this storm and its rain will continue to weak havoc for several days.

Abbot want on to say

I’ve got to tell you, I give FEMA a grade of A+, all the way from the president down,” Abbott said. “I’ve spoken to the president several times, to his Cabinet members, such as secretary of homeland security, such as the administrator of FEMA, such as Tom Price, the secretary of health and human services.

Of course, you won’t hear any of that on CNN, MSNBC, CBS, NBC, ABS, The Washington Post, The NY Times, or any of the left-wing’s propaganda tool … the one that, at one time, was the American Free Press!

Bigger Government?

I found this post on a Fox News web forum highlighting viewers’ responses to the GOP debate hosted by Fox News. It caught my eye because of the comments on big government. This viewer is from Sweden and historically Sweden has been a big government/socialist country. While I was out in Aspen, Colorado attending an ESI training session about 7 years ago, I got the chance to meet a young man, also from Sweden, who made some very similar comments. However, for some reason, many of our left-wing liberal democrats like to point to Sweden as a shining example of where we should be headed as a country.

I have lived in this country for the past 17 years and I am honored to be a citizen and the spouse of a military officer. I grew up in the beautiful country of Sweden and moved here as a young adult. I know big government! I know the inefficiencies of government run health care. I know the paralyzing effects high taxes have on a people. I know what a lack of respect for life and the sanctity of marriage have on society. I could go on an on.

On so many issues the democrats could not be further from what I believe is right, true and good for America. To all republicans and conservative independents, I would like to say; Please vote for the candidate that you think will have the best chance of beating the Democratic nominee. The polls are clear. Mitt Romney is the one most people believe can beat the Democratic nominee: whoever that may be. Take the time and watch the debates and various appearances and you’ll see a well-composed, intelligent, articulate leader ready to take over in the White House.

I wish she would go on and on.

I am not sure I agree with her endorsement of Mitt Romney as the only viable republican candidate, but her comments speak volumes about big government and tax and spend politics. I hope the Republican Party can rediscover its small government, conservative spending roots. It certainly needs to convince the voters in this country it has … if it hopes to gain a victory in the 2008 election.

I find it curious that the same people, who cried so loudly about FEMA’s inept handling and wasteful spending during the Hurricane Katrina disaster in New Orleans, want to give that same government more responsibility and money … meaning more wasteful bureaucracy.

It currently takes 5 to 6 months of red tape for a doctor to be paid by medicare. If government run healthcare is so good, why do people who have money in countries that have government run healthcare come to the U.S. for treatment of anything serious?

Why would we want to give a government that builds bridges to nowhere and grants $400,000 for a Teapot Museum in Sparta, North Carolina more of our tax dollars? Pork Barrel projects in 2006 totaled $29 billions dollars. Hillary Clinton’s recent support of the “Woodstock Museum” comes to mind.

My tax dollars should be better spent … before they come asking me for more!

As an interesting side note: Sweden’s new prime minister’s party won because of, among other things, pledged tax cuts.
