Obama and the Pledge

I received and e-mail today with the following picture and tag line:
Senator Barack Obama, Governor Bill Richardson, Senator Hillary Clinton and Ruth Harkin stand during the national anthem.

Barack Hussein Obama's photo (that's his real name)......the article said he REFUSED TO NOT ONLY PUT HIS HAND ON HIS HEART DURING THE PLEDGE OF ALLEGIANCE, BUT REFUSED TO SAY THE can a man like this expect to be our next Commander-in-Chief ?? Better yet, how can any true American support him?
So I did some checking... According to this article at this is not a photoshopped picture but they do go on to say that he does do it at other times. Also that article links to Media Matters (John Podesta's group) which goes off on when Hannity and Colmes talk about this. All that being said, and if he did or did not say The Pledge, the picture speaks volumes for someone who is in the running to be the next President, doesn't it?

Just Keep Cleaning Up The Poop

A friend forwarded this to me. Kudos to the author.

I bought a bird feeder. I hung it on my back porch and filled it with seeds. What a beauty of a bird feeder it is, as I filled it lovingly with seed. Within a week we had hundreds of birds taking advantage of the continuous flow of free and easily accessible food. But then the birds started building nests in the boards of the patio, above the table, and next to the barbecue.

Then came the poop. It was every-where: on the patio tile, the chairs, the table ... everywhere! Then some of the birds turned mean. They would dive bomb me and try to peck me even though I had fed them out of my own pocket. And others birds were boisterous and loud. They sat on the feeder and squawked and screamed at all hours of the day and night and demanded that I fill it when it got low on food.

After a while, I couldn't even sit on my own back porch anymore. So I took down the bird feeder and in three days the birds were gone. I cleaned up their mess and took down the many nests they had built all over the patio.

Soon, the back yard was like it used to be .... quiet, serene and no one demanding their rights to a free meal.

Now let's see .....
Our government gives out free food, subsidised housing, free medical care, and free education and allows anyone born here to be an automatic citizen. Then the illegals came by the tens of thousands. Suddenly our taxes went up to pay for free services; small apartments are housing 5 families; you have to wait 6 hours to be seen by an emergency room doctor; your child's 2nd grade class is behind other schools because over half the class doesn't speak English. Corn Flakes now come in a bilingual box; I have to "press one" to hear my bank talk to me in English, and people waving flags other than " Old Glory " are squawking and screaming in the streets, demanding more rights and free liberties.

Just my opinion, but maybe it's time for the government to take down the bird feeder.

Freedom is not free. Americans need to stand up and preserve our culture. If we continue to allow our rights and freedoms to be extended to those who have no loyalty or desire to defend America, then soon there will be no American to defend.

Multiculturalism - inch by inch

I've said it before and current events keep proving the point. Even though our nation is somewhere between 75 and 80% Christian, the silent majority continues to let minorities demand equal (and sometimes superior) treatment in the public square. Allowing Muslims to demand separate and equal holidays in our government schools (that's public school for the uninformed) is not only wrong it's dangerous to our culture. Our nation was founded on Judeo-Christian beliefs and we continue to be a Christian nation. It is a slippery slope from Christian beliefs to a multicultural and weaker nation.

While it is true that America is a melting pot of immigrants, we have become a unique and vibrant culture. This strength has left us as the sole remaining superpower and we should not shy away from that responsibility. We should celebrate our place in the geopolitical arena and constantly remind ourselves of our "Americanness".

We should be proud of our heritage and our history. We are American, and we should not forget it or allow it to fade away - inch by inch.
