Obama: A Dysfunctional Leader

If you thought really hard, do you think you could come up with anyone who truly believes that Obama is a competent leader? Well, I sat down and decided to give it some thought, I immediately scratched off all the leaders of all the countries of the world, because there is not one who believes Obama is capable of handling any situation, except playing golf of course. I believe all these leaders only talk and listen to Obama just to show politeness, but as far as trusting him to do anything that resembles being presidential, I believe after they hang-up the phone, they just shake their heads and laugh.  Read more.

Atheists Now Run Our Country

There is no doubt that our country has changed, not for the better I might add. Our society is collapsing, at least in my view anyway. I have always said that societies slow decline started in the mid 1960’s, when the government started with its social engineering policies. Now it seems we have atheists telling us what we can and cannot do. Read more.

Governor Christie, Take A Hike

Governor Chris Christie of New Jersey job’s approval has fallen from a peak of 74 percent in February 2013 even as he won a second term in Democratic-leaning New Jersey and speculation increased about a possible 2016 presidential run. His numbers declined as he became embroiled in an inquiry over possible political motivations behind traffic tie-ups at the George Washington Bridge. When voters were asked whether they regarded Christie as honest and trustworthy, 46 percent said yes, 49 percent said no. Asked if he cares about their needs and problems, 47 percent agreed, and 49 percent did not. Read more.

Are They Our Kids Or The States

Some time things happen in this country that make me wonder if I went to sleep and woke up in a far away land. When I hear that we are the land of the free I have to laugh and say “we used to be, but not anymore.” Oh, we might be more of a free country compared to most others, but we have moved so far from what our Founding Fathers envisioned our country to be, that at times it actually scares me.

Survey Says 39% Of Americans Are Morons

By now, everyone has heard about Obama’s dismal approval ratings. There is a surprise in the poll showing Obama with a mere 39 percent approval rating, against 54 percent disapproval, the surprise is that 39 percent still think he’s doing a good job. One would think that with 20 percent of the country admitting to being Liberals, I would think that his approval rating would be at 20 percent, unless 19 percent are embarrassed to admit they are Liberals. Well, I can’t blame them for that. Read more.

Are We Still A Christian Nation?

“Whatever we once were, we’re no longer a Christian nation. At least not just. We are also a Jewish nation, a Muslim nation, and a Buddhist nation, and a Hindu nation, and a nation of nonbelievers,” Obama said this during a June 2007 speech. Like many other Christians, I was a little miffed and could not believe a president would say such a thing, after all our country was founded on Judeo-Christian values. Not only that, our Founding Fathers put this country in the hands of God and said so in many of their writings. Read more.

Couple face $500 fine for letting their lawn turn brown - after they stopped watering it to comply with California water-saving rules

Originally posted at The Last Tradition

This is a perfect example how out-of-control government not only disrupts people’s lives, but also lead to absurdities. 

A Southern California couple who scaled back watering due to drought received a letter from the city of Glendora warning that they could face fines if they don't get their brown lawn green again reports the Daily Mail

The San Gabriel Valley Tribune reports the letter from the code enforcement bureau says the dry grass could be a 'potential public nuisance problem.' 

Michael Korte and his wife Laura Whitney are told if they don't revive the lawn they could be hit with up to $500 in fines and possible criminal action.
On Tuesday — when the couple received the letter — state regulators authorized fines up to $500 for overwatering lawns.

'Despite the water conservation efforts, we wish to remind you that limited watering is still required to keep landscaping looking healthy and green,' the letter stated.

So I’m A Racist, So What

Well, here we go again, Eric Holder is falling back to his favorite catch phrase, calling people racist who disagree with him and his buddy Obama. I really think Holder keeps a tape recorder in his pocket and plays it back whenever someone disagrees with him, all it says is, you’re a racist, you’re a racist. This must be the seventh or eighth time he has been using the race card and there is no end in sight, until Obama leaves office that is. Read more.

Stopping Illegal Immigration

Recently I have been listening to many different ideas on what we should do about illegal immigrants. People such as Bill O’reilly, Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham and Charles Krauthammer, just to name a few, have put forth their ideas. It’s funny how only Conservatives seem to be coming up with ideas, after all, we all know the Liberal plan, AMNISTY FOR ALL ILLEGALS. Read more.

The dictionary has the definition of Treason as:
1. The offense of acting to overthrow one’s government or to harm or kill its sovereign.
2. A violation of allegiance to one’s sovereign or to one’s state.
3. The betrayal of a trust or confidence; breach of faith; treachery.

Each elected official in Washington from the president to senators to representatives, all take an oath to uphold the Constitution, their allegiance is to the Constitution, not their party and definitely not to only one man. I have read many stories lately, of how many of the Democrats who backed Obama, knew from the beginning that he was incompetent, yet they shouted that he was the best thing for this country since sliced bread. Is this treason? It seems to me it falls under the definition 2. A violation of allegiance to one’s sovereign or to one’s state. 3. The betrayal of a trust or confidence; breach of faith; treachery. After all, their allegiance is supposed to be to the Constitution and the country. Read more.

Obama Pull Your Head Out Of Your Ass

There are many things I would love to say to Obama, but now I find myself wanting to say only one thing, “Hey Obama, pull your head out of your ass.” Day after day, I sit in disbelief as we watch our commander in chief look like a buffoon by saying he hears about everything that is going on, only because he hears about it on the news. Obama seems to think that there is no difference between pulling out of the war in Iraq, then there is by winning the war in Iraq and now we are seeing the difference, and it ain’t pretty.  Read more.

Ben Carson? I Don’t Think So

The Republican Party will surely lose every presidential election, if the people who lean right in this country do not smarten up. It seems to me that there are many people, who refuse to vote for a candidate, because that candidate does not believe 100% in what they believe. A perfect example is the last election, Romney lost only because people stayed home because they didn’t think he was Conservative enough, those are the people I blame for Obama’s re-election. I truly believe that Romney would have been a great president, he was a successful Governor and a successful businessman, it also appears that he was right on many foreign issues as well.
