Subject: Our Changing World
Subject: Fw: Letter to our President ( it's perfect)]
take the time to at LEAST check it out a little bit.
To me, this letter is absolutely a "grand slam home run". It says it all. If you agree with what it says, share it with as many people as you can! If not , delete it and go on your merry way. We know the "great one" will never ever read this, & if he did would never admit he was wrong , or change his way.
God Bless America! We need all the help we can muster.
April 17, 2009
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
Washington, DC 20500
I have had it with you and your administration, sir. Your conduct on
your recent trip overseas has convinced me that you are not an
adequate representative of the United States of America collectively
or of me personally.
You are so obsessed with appeasing the Europeans and the Muslim world
that you have abdicated the responsibilities of the President of the
United States of America. You are responsible to the citizens of the
United States. You are not responsible to the peoples of any other
country on earth.
I personally resent that you go around the world apologizing for the
United States telling Europeans that we are arrogant and do not care
about their status in the world. Sir, what do you think the First
World War and the Second World War were all about if not the
consideration of the peoples of Europe? Are you brain dead? What do
you think the Marshall Plan was all about? Do you not understand or
know the history of the 20th century?
Where do you get off telling a Muslim country that the United States
does not consider itself a Christian country? Have you not read the
Declaration of Independence or the Constitution of the United States?
This country was founded on Judeo-Christian ethics and the principles
governing this country, at least until you came along, come directly
from this heritage. Do you not understand this?
Your bowing to the king of Saudi Arabia is an affront to all
Americans. Our President does not bow down to anyone, let alone the
king of Saudi Arabia. You don’t show Great Britain, our best and one
of our oldest allies, the respect they deserve yet you bow down to the
king of Saudi Arabia. How dare you, sir! How dare you!
You can’t find the time to visit the graves of our greatest generation
because you don’t want to offend the Germans but make time to visit a
mosque in Turkey. You offended our dead and every veteran when you
give the Germans more respect than the people who saved the German
people from themselves. What’s the matter with you?
I am convinced that you and the members of your administration have
the historical and intellectual depth of a mud puddle and should be
ashamed of yourselves, all of you.
You are so self-righteously offended by the big bankers and the
American automobile manufacturers yet do nothing about the real
thieves in this situation, Mr. Dodd, Mr. Frank, Franklin Raines, Jamie
Gorelic, the Fannie Mae bonuses, and the Freddie Mac bonuses. What do
you intend to do about them? Anything? I seriously doubt it.
What about the U.S. House members passing out $9.1 million in bonuses
to their staff members – on top of the $2.5 million in automatic pay
raises that lawmakers gave themselves? I understand the average House
aide got a 17% bonus. I took a 5% cut in my pay to save jobs with my
employer. You haven’t said anything about that. Who authorized that?
I surely didn’t!
Executives at Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac will be receiving $210
million in bonuses over an eighteen-month period, that's $45 million
more than the AIG bonuses. In fact, Fannie and Freddie executives
have already been awarded $51 million – not a bad take. Who
authorized that and why haven’t you expressed your outrage at this
group who are largely responsible for the economic mess we have right
I resent that you take me and my fellow citizens as brain-dead and not
caring about what you idiots do. We are watching what you are doing
and we are getting increasingly fed up with all of you. I also want
you to know that I personally find just about everything you do and
say to be offensive to every one of my sensibilities. I promise you
that I will work tirelessly to see that you do not get a chance to
spend two terms destroying my beautiful country.
Every real American
P.S. I rarely ask that emails be 'passed around'.............PLEASE
SEND THIS TO YOUR EMAIL LIST......it's past time for all Americans to

Now we know why he got so much campaign money from the middle east!
SCARY STUFF HAPPENING -
Whether you are an Obama fan, or not, EVERYONE IN THE U. S. Needs to know....
Something happened... H.R. 1388 was passed yesterday, behind our backs. You may want to read about it. It wasn't mentioned on the news... Just went by on the ticker tape at the bottom of the CNN screen.
Obama funds $20M in tax payer dollars to immigrate Hamas Refugees to the USA. This is the news that didn't make the headlines...
By executive order, President Barack Obama has ordered the expenditure of $20.3 million in "migration assistance" to the Palestinian refugees and "conflict victims" in Gaza.
The "presidential determination", which allows hundreds of thousands of Palestinians with ties to Hamas to resettle in the United States, was signed on January 27 and appeared in the Federal Register on February 4.
Few on Capitol Hill, or in the media, took note that the order provides a free ticket replete with housing and food allowances to individuals who have displayed their overwhelming support to the Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas) in the parliamentary election of January 2006.
Let's review...itemized list of some of Barack Obama's most recent actions since his inauguration:
His first call to any head of state, as president, was to Mahmoud Abbas, leader of Fatah party in the Palestinian territory.
His first one-on-one television interview with any news organization was with Al Arabia television.
His first executive order was to fund/facilitate abortion(s) not just here within the U. S., but within the world, using U. S. Tax payer funds.
He ordered Guantanamo Bay closed and all military trials of detainees halted.
He ordered overseas CIA interrogation centers closed.
He withdrew all charges against the masterminds behind the USS Cole and the "terror attack" on 9/11.
Now we learn that he is allowing hundreds of thousands of Palestinian refuges to move to, and live in, the US at American taxpayer expense.
These important, and insightful, issues are being "lost" in the blinding bail-outs and "stimulation" packages.
Doubtful? To verify this for yourself: www.thefederalregister.com/d.p/2009-02-04-E9-2488
PLEASE PASS THIS ON... AMERICA NEEDS TO KNOW
WE are losing this country at a rapid pace.
Curator's note: This is, to the best of our knowledge, the first Canadian RWF to be displayed in the Museum.
Well, I just did a Sociology class and some research.amazing stuff,, By 2018 at the present rate of Immigration Canada will have about 6 million Asians. The middle class cannot afford to have children because of taxes. They will have more children. We are Immigrating 200,000 Asians per year now. Aging Canadians will pass. As a result by 2046 Canada will be Chinese/Japanese. As Malcolm X would say, we are chumps(fools). Our present Political Academics are to blame. If you don't buy this read the Canadian stats site. With this new Asian group we will produce goods cheaper, the cost, the removal of our present Canadian population. Folks we are in big trouble, I ask that all Native, French and English Canadians join together and lobby our Canadian Politicians. If we soon don't stop this our new Canadian Language in a few short years will be likely Chinese/Japanese or Mandarin. I hope you will pass this along to all friends and relatives. I have been a Sociol Justice Reformer for some time and feel this needs our urgent attention. We are being distracted by less important things these days. It is not my intent to spawn anger, only truthful awareness. Pass the word, or our grand kids may not speak, English, French or Native tongue in the next generation. Rather an Asian Language..
it is about time something like makes the news. the reason wetbacks are not required to learn our langue is because it might offend someone ! but let one of us go to Mexico or some other country and see if do not have to lean their langue . I hope you will care enough to pass this on.

A biker is riding by the zoo, when he sees a little girl leaning into the lion's cage. Suddenly, the lion grabs her by the cuff of her jacket and tries to pull her inside to slaughter her, under the eyes of her screaming parents.
The biker jumps off his bike, runs to the cage and hits the lion square on the nose with a powerful punch.
Whimpering from the pain the lion jumps back letting go of the girl, and the biker brings her to her terrified parents, who thank him endlessly. A reporter has watched the whole event.
The reporter addressing the biker says, 'Sir, this was the most gallant and brave thing I saw a man do in my whole life.'
The biker replies, 'Why, it was nothing, really, the lion was behind bars. I just saw this little kid in danger, and acted as I felt right.'
The reporter says, 'Well, I'll make sure this won't go unnoticed. I'm a journalist, you know, and tomorrow's paper will have this story on the front page... So, what do you do for a living and what political affiliation do you have?'
The biker replies, 'I'm a U.S. Marine and a Republican.' The journalist leaves.
The following morning the biker buys the paper to see if it indeed brings news of his actions, and reads, on the front page:

Read it. It is well worth your time.
I am a student of history. Professionally, I have written 15 books in
six languages, and have studied history all my life. I think there is
something monumentally large afoot, and I do not believe it is just a
banking crisis, or a mortgage crisis, or a credit crisis. Yes, these
exist but they are merely single facets on a very large gemstone that is only
now coming into a sharper focus.
Something of historic proportions is happening. I can sense it
because I know how it feels, smells, what it looks like, and how people
react to it. Yes, a perfect storm may be brewing, but there is
something happening within our country that has been evolving for about 10 - 15
years. The pace has dramatically quickened in the past two.
We have spent two or more decades intentionally de-industrializing
our economy. Why?
We have intentionally dumbed down our schools, ignored our history,
and no longer teach our founding documents, why we are exceptional, and
why we are worth preserving. Students by and large cannot write, think
critically, read, or articulate. Parents are not revolting, teachers
are not picketing, school boards continue to back mediocrity. Why?
We have now established the precedent of protesting every close
election (now violently in California over a proposition that is so
controversial that it wants marriage to remain between one man and one
woman. Did you ever think such a thing possible just a decade ago?). We
have corrupted our sacred political process by allowing unelected
judges to write laws that radically change our way of life, and then mainstream
Marxist groups like ACORN and others to turn our voting system into a
banana republic. To what purpose?
Now our mortgage industry is collapsing, housing prices are in free
fall, major industries are failing, our banking system is on the verge
of collapse, Social Security is nearly bankrupt, as is Medicare and our
entire government. Our education system is worse than a joke (I teach college
and know precisely what I am talking about.) The list is staggering in its
length, breadth, and depth. It is potentially 1929 x 10. And we are at
war with an enemy we cannot name for fear of offending people of the same
religion who cannot wait to slit the throats of your children if they
have the opportunity to do so.
And now we have elected a man no one knows anything about, who has
never run so much as a Dairy Queen, let alone a town as big as Wasilla
, Alaska . All of his associations and alliances are with real radicals
in their chosen fields of employment, and everything we learn about him,
drip by drip, is unsettling if not downright scary (Surely you have heard
him speak about his idea to create and fund a mandatory civilian defense
force stronger than our military for use inside our borders? No? Oh, of
course. The media would never play that for you over and over and then demand
he answer it. Sarah Palin's pregnant daughter and $150,000 wardrobe is
I have never been so afraid for my country and for my children as I am
now. This man campaigned on bringing people together, something he has
never, ever done in his professional life. In my assessment, Obama will
divide us along philosophical lines, push us apart, and then try to
realign the pieces into a new and different power structure. Change is indeed
coming. And when it comes, you will never see the same nation again.
I thought I would never be able to experience what the ordinary, moral
German felt in the mid-1930s. In those times, the savior was a former
smooth-talking rabble-rouser from the streets, about whom the average
German knew next to nothing. What they did know was that he was associated
with groups that shouted, shoved, and pushed around people with whom they
disagreed; he edged his way onto the political stage through great
oratory and promises. Economic times were tough, people were losing jobs, and
he was a great speaker. And he smiled and waved a lot. And people, even
newspapers, were afraid to speak out for fear that his "brown shirts"
would bully them into submission.
And then he was duly elected to office, with a full-throttled economic
crisis at hand [the Great Depression]. Slowly but surely he seized the
controls of government power, department by department, person by
person, bureaucracy by bureaucracy. The kids joined a Youth Movement in his
name, where they were taught what to think. How did he get the people on his
side? He did it promising jobs to the jobless, money to the moneyless,
and goodies for the military-industrial complex. He did it by indoctrinating
the children, advocating gun control, health care for all, better wages,
better jobs, and promising to re-instill pride once again in the country,
across Europe , and across the world.
He did it with a compliant media - Did you know that? And he did this
all in the name of justice and..... change. And the people surely
got what they voted for. (Look it up if you think I am exaggerating.) Read
your history books. Many people objected in 1933 and were shouted down,
called names, laughed at, and made fun of. When Winston Churchill
pointed out the obvious in the late 1930s while seated in the House of Lords in
England (he was not yet Prime Minister), he was booed into his seat and
called a crazy troublemaker. He was right, though ..
Don't forget that Germany was the most educated, cultured country in
Europe .. It was full of music, art, museums, hospitals, laboratories,
and universities. And in less than six years - a shorter time span than
just two terms of the U. S. presidency - it was rounding up its own
citizens, killing others, abrogating its laws, turning children against parents,
and neighbors against neighbors. All with the best of intentions, of
course. The road to Hell is paved with them.

Since many of you enjoy senior citizen status or will sometime in the not too distant future, I thought you might be interested in this information.
IN GOD WE TRUST
Everybody that is on this mailing list is either a senior citizen, is getting close or knows sombody that is.
Most of you know by now that the Senate version (at least) of the "stimulus" bill includes provisions for extensive rationing of health care for senior citizens. The author of this part of the bill, former senator and tax evader, Tom Daschle was credited today by Bloomberg with the following statement:
Bloomberg: "Daschle says health-care reform [UTF-8?] will not be pain [UTF-8?]free. Seniors should be more accepting of the conditions that come with age instead of treating them."
If this does not sufficiently raise your ire, just remember that Senators and Congressmen have their own healthcare plan that is first dollar or very low co-pay which they are guaranteed the remainder of their lives and are not subject to this new law if it passes.
Please use the power of the internet to get this message out. Talk it up at the grassroots level. We have an election coming up in one year and nine months. We have the ability to address and reverse the dangerous direction the Obama administration and it allies have begun and in the interim, we can make our voices heard! Lets do it!
If you disagree, don't do anything.

Just wanted to tell everyone that I am so grateful to know good people. I pray you all have a blessed day. It was difficult for me to decide who I thought would DO this because many people claim to pray, but not everyone does. I hope I chose the right people. Please send this back to me (You'll see why). May everyone who received this message be blessed. There are 12 months/ 12 disciples/ 12 tribes of Israel / Jesus' birth celebrated in the 12th month. There is nothing attached. Just send this to twelve others. Prayer is the best free gifts we receive. There is no cost, just a lot of reward. Make sure you pray, and pray believing God will answer. May today be all you need it to be. May the peace of God and the freshness of the Holy Spirit rest in your thoughts, rule in your dreams tonight, and conquer all your fears. May God manifest Himself today in ways you have never experienced. May your joys be fulfilled, your dreams be closer, and your prayers be answered. I pray that faith enters a new height for you; I pray that your territory is enlarged. I pray for peace, healing, health, happiness, prosperity, joy, true and undying love for God. God promises a safe landing, not a calm passage. Now send this to 12 people or as many as you can within 5 minutes and remember to send this back...I count as 2, you'll see why. Suggestion: copy and paste rather than forward
Fw: "Rescue" of Captain Philips
An account by a military man. Cannot detemine if it is true, but it sounds quite credible to me.
Having spoken to some SEAL pals here in Virginia Beach yesterday and asking why this thing dragged out for 4 days, I got the following:
1. BHO wouldn't authorize the DEVGRU/NSWC SEAL teams to the scene for 36 hours going against OSC (on scene commander) recommendation.
2. Once they arrived, BHO imposed restrictions on their ROE that they couldn't do anything unless the hostage's life was in "imminent" danger
3. The first time the hostage jumped, the SEALS had the raggies all sighted in, but could not fire due to ROE restriction
4. When the navy RIB came under fire as it approached with supplies, no fire was returned due to ROE restrictions. As the raggies were shooting at the RIB, they were exposed and the SEALS had them all dialed in.
5. BHO specifically denied two rescue plans developed by the Bainbridge CPN and SEAL teams
6. Bainbridge CPN and SEAL team CDR finally decide they have the OpArea and OSC authority to solely determine risk to hostage. 4 hours later, 3 dead raggies
7. BHO immediately claims credit for his "daring and decisive" behaviour. As usual with him, it's BS.
So per our last email thread, I'm downgrading Oohbaby's performace to D-. Only reason it's not an F is that the hostage survived. Read the following accurate account.
Philips’ first leap into the warm, dark water of the Indian Ocean Bainbridge in range and a rescue by his country’s Navy possible, Philips threw himself off of his lifeboat prison, enabling Navy shooters onboard the destroyer a clear shot at his captors — and none was taken.
The guidance from National Command Authority — the president of the United States, Barack Obama — had been clear: a peaceful solution was the only acceptable outcome to this standoff unless the hostage’s life was in clear, extreme danger.
The next day, a small Navy boat approaching the floating raft was fired on by the Somali pirates — and again no fire was returned and no pirates killed. This was again due to the cautious stance assumed by Navy personnel thanks to the combination of a lack of clear guidance from Washington and a mandate from the commander in chief’s staff not to act until Obama, a man with no background of dealing with such issues and no track record of decisiveness, decided that any outcome other than a “peaceful solution” would be acceptable.
After taking fire from the Somali kidnappers again Saturday night, the onscenecommander decided he’d had enough.
Keeping his authority to act in the case of a clear and present danger to the hostage’s life and having heard nothing from Washington since yet another request to mount a rescue operation had been denied the day before, the Navy officer — unnamed in all media reports to date — decided the AK47 one captor had leveled at Philips’ back was a threat to the hostage’s life and ordered the NSWC team to take their shots.
Three rounds downrange later, all three brigands became enemy KIA and Philips was safe.
There is upside, downside, and spinside to the series of events over the last week that culminated in yesterday’s dramatic rescue of an American hostage.
Almost immediately following word of the rescue, the Obama administration and its supporters claimed victory against pirates in the Indian Ocean and  declared that the dramatic end to the standoff put paid to questions of the inexperienced president’s toughness and decisiveness.
Despite the Obama administration’s (and its sycophants’) attempt to spin yesterday’s success as a result of bold, decisive leadership by the inexperienced president, the reality is nothing of the sort.
What should have been a standoff lasting only hours — as long as it took the USS Bainbridge and its team of NSWC operators to steam to the location — became an embarrassing four day and counting standoff between a ragtag handful of criminals with rifles and a U.S. Navy warship.
I am trying to recover from being squashed as flat as a paper doll at the tea party last night in Atlanta. The last count I heard for it was 14,000 and I think 4,000 of them were in my space. Not only could I not see the stage, but I could not see the huge screen with the video image of the proceedings. Things were so tight that we didn’t need coats in the 47 degree weather and I could not get my fantastic poster, over which I had slaved for hours with a hot glue gun, into the air. My lovely hat with the dangling teabags was all that I could manage. A friend and I were pasted against the fence of Central Presbyterian Church, begging people to stop climbing it as we knew it was going to go down. There were kids, strollers, old people, etc. there. Everybody was yelling and singing and they all were familiar with the constitution. A group passed out copies of it. A little old black man tried to get through the crowd. He looked like a vagrant, but he was yelling, “I need to get to work!” A man in a cashmere coat yelled, “Get out of the way, this is a working man and he is on his way to his job!” The crowd parted like the Red Sea was parted by Moses. Only people with a true appreciation for the work ethic could respond like that.
The entire evening was like getting in touch with the very best of who we are, of what this country represents. It was like a lesson in American history, before they rewrote the history books. The people there were the people who are real. The slogans on the signs were incredibly creative and thoughtful. The people spoke good English and treated each other with respect. They were not hateful and denigrating. But they were angry at their leaders and angry at themselves for not being involved enough to choose better leaders. The people that were there will not be uninvolved again. They are going to be some of the most informed and politically adept Americans around. I guarantee that they will not fall by the wayside and this movement will not lose steam. Anyone who was part of the group will tell you…..this was only the beginning.
We Need To Do This! In our current economic situation, every little thing we buy or do affects someone else and perhaps even their job.... so after reading this email ... I think this lady is on the right track. Let's get behind her!! Hi friends, This may seem like a funny email but I was so surprised by what I discovered I had to share it with you. When I think of the job situation in this country, I can't help but think this helps in some small way. I don't know how many households there are in the U.S. . but if these were the only things we bought think of the impact... (She wrote:) This past weekend I was at Kroger. I needed 60 W light bulbs and Bounce dryer sheets. I was in the light bulb aisle and right next to the GE brand I normally buy was an off brand labeled " Everyday Value ." I picked up both types of bulbs and compared the stats - they were the same except for the price. The GE bulbs were more money than the Everyday Value brand but the thing that surprised me the most was the fact that GE was made in MEXICO and the Everyday Value brand was made in - get read y for this - the USA . So throw out the myth that you cannot find products you use every day that are made right here - from a company in Cleveland OH !

So on to another aisle - Bounce Dryer Sheets......yep you guessed it Bounce was more money and made in Canada , the Everyday Value brand was less money and MADE IN THE USA ! I di d laundry yesterday and the dryer sheets performed just like the Bounce Free I have been using for years and at almost half the price!
So my challenge to you is to start reading the labels when you shop for everyday things and see what you can find that is made in the USA - the job you save may be your own or your neighbors!
If you accept the challenge, pass this on to others in your address book so we can all start buying American, one light bulb at a time!
Besides, you might save a little green in the process.
We should have awakened a decade ago...... lets get with the program..... help our fellow Americans keep their jobs ... and create more jobs here in the U.S.A.
Did you hear Osama say we are not a Christian Nation on Fox News tonight? What gives him the right to define the USA all these many decades after our forefathers fought and died for this Christian Nation?
Live your life in such a way that when your feet hit the floor in the morning, Satan shudders & says , "Oh, no......she's awake!!"
Subject: Fw: A Lesson on Socialism
A PRETTY GOOD ANALOGY!
A Lesson on Socialism.
An economics professor at Texas Tech said he had never failed a single student before but had, once, failed an entire class. The class had insisted that socialism worked and that no one would be poor and no one would be rich, a great equalizer. The professor then said ok, we will have an experiment in this class on socialism.
All grades would be averaged and everyone would receive the same grade so no one would fail and no one would receive an A.
After the first test the grades were averaged and everyone got a B. The students who studied hard were upset and the students who studied little were happy. But, as the second test rolled around, the students who studied little had studied even less and the ones who studied hard decided they wanted a free ride too, so they studied little.
The second test average was a D. No one was happy.
When the third test rolled around, the average was an F.
The scores never increased as bickering, blame, and name calling all resulted in hard feelings and no one would study for anyone else.
To their great surprise, all failed. The professor told them that socialism would ultimately fail because the harder it is to succeed the greater the reward, but when a government takes all the reward away, no one will try so no one will succeed.
Subject: Fwd: Dinner in Montana
This may have may the rounds before....
This is a great story! The radio station America FM was doing one of its
'Is Anyone Listening?' bits this morning. The first question was, 'Ever
have a celebrity come up with the 'Do you know who I am?' routine?'
A woman called in and said that a few years a go, while visiting her
cattle rancher uncle in Billings, MT, she had occasion to go to dinner at
a restaurant that does not take reservations. The wait was about 45
minutes; many ranchers and their wives were waiting.
Ted Turner and his ex-wife Jane Fonda came in the restaurant and wanted a
table. The hostess informed them that they'd have to wait 45 minutes.
Jane Fonda asked the hostess, 'Do you know who I am?' The hostess
answered, 'Yes, but you'll have to wait 45 minutes.' Then Jane asked if
the manager was in. When the manager came out, he asked, 'May I help
you?' 'Do you know who we are?' both Ted and Jane asked. 'Yes, but these
folks have been waiting, and I can't put you ahead of them.'
Then Ted asked to speak to the owner. The owner came out, and Jane again
asked, 'Do you know who I am?' The owner answered, 'Yes, I do. Do you
know who I am? I am the owner of this restaurant and I am a Vietnam
Veteran. Not only will you not get a table ahead of my friends and
neighbors who have been waiting here, but you also will not be eating in
my restaurant tonight or any other night. Good bye..'
Only in America , is this a great country, or what?
To all who received this, this is a true story and the name of the steak

If you ever get there, give this fellow a sharp salute, buy a steak, and
tip the waitress. Keep passing this on. We should never forget our
And let's not forget what 'our gal' Hillary said to the troops in Iraq ,
'This war has no support from the American public.'
Where are we heading? More of the change the people wanted. This is starting to be a weird government we have in charge now. Is thisa the start of the hilter’s defense force?

Military to Pledge Oath To Obama, Not Constitution
Secretary of Defense Robert Gates is extremely frustrated with orders that the White House is contemplating. According to sources at the Pentagon, including all branches of the armed forces, the Obama Administration may break with a centuries-old tradition.
A spokesman for General James Cartwright, the Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, states that the Obama Administration wants to have soldiers and officers pledge a loyalty oath directly to the office of the President, and no longer to the Constitution.
"The oath to the Constitution is as old as the document itself." the spokesman said, "At no time in American history, not even in the Civil War, did the oath change or the subject of the oath differ. It has always been to the Constitution."
The back-and-forth between the White House and the Defense Department was expected as President George W. Bush left office. President Obama has already signed orders to close Guantanamo and to pull combat troops from Iraq But, this, say many at the Defense Department, goes too far.
"Technically, we can't talk about it before it becomes official policy." the spokesman continued. "However, the Defense Department, including the Secretary, will not take this laying down. Expect a fight from the bureaucracy and the brass."
Sources at the White House had a different point of view. In a circular distributed by White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs, the rationale for the change was made more clear.
"The President feels that the military has been too indoctrinated by the old harbingers of hate: nationalism, racism, and classism. By removing an oath to the American society, the soldiers are less likely to commit atrocities like those at Abu Ghraib."
"We expect a lot of flak over this," the classified memo continues. "But those that would be most against it are those looking either for attention or control."
The time frame for the changes are unknown. However, it is more likely that the changes will be made around the July 4th holiday, in order to dampen any potential backlash. The difference in the oath will actually only be slight. The main differences will be the new phrasing. It is expected that the oath to the Constitution will be entirely phased out within two years.

Subject: FW: Interesting video - I think you will like this.
No matter what your political affiliation is this is worth your time to view.
This is an eye opening video (a bit long but worth the time-9:22 min.). If this is what our country has come to WE ARE ALL IN BIG TROUBLE. This has happened in a relatively short period of time and we allowed it to happen. If you agree action is needed do your part -whatever that may be -but do something.

FW: Refuse the New Dollar Coin
REFUSE THE NEW $ COINS
This simple action will make a strong statement.
Please help do this....refuse to accept these if/when they are handed to you. If you received one from the Post Office as change asked for a dollar bill instead.
U.S. Government is releasing New Dollar Coins
You probably guessed it, it is a beautiful coin but,
'IN GOD WE TRUST' IS GONE FROM THE FACE OF THE COIN!!!
If ever there was a reason to boycott something, THIS IS IT!!!!
DO NOT ACCEPT THE NEW DOLLAR COINS AS CHANGE
Comment: According to the U.S. Mint, an unknown number of the new one-dollar George Washington coins (at least 50,000 of them) were erroneously struck without the motto "In God We Trust" on the edge and accidentally found their way into the batch of 300 million issued on February 15, 2007. A rumor began circulating soon afterward to the effect that the religious slogan "In God We Trust", which has been a standard inscription on U.S. coins since 1938 and the national motto since 1956, was intentionally omitted from the entire run of one-dollar coins. That rumor is false, though it remains unclear whether it was inspired by the minting error or the fact that the newly designed coin, properly manufactured, bears the inscription "In God We Trust" on its outer edge instead of its face, per the Presidential $1 Coin Act of 2005 which stated:
10) In order to revitalize the design of United States coinage and return circulating coinage to its position as not only a necessary means of exchange in commerce, but also as an object of aesthetic beauty in its own right, it is appropriate to move many of the mottos and emblems, the inscription of the year, and the so-called "mint marks" that currently appear on the 2 faces of each circulating coin to the edge of the coin, which would allow larger and more dramatic artwork on the coins reminiscent of the so-called "Golden Age of Coinage" in the United States...
Even though the omission on some of the coins was a "minting error", the fact is the words "In God We Trust" were removed from the face of the coins supposedly for "artistic" reasons. If that was the true reason then why wasn't "1st President 1789 - 1797" placed on the side of the coin and "In God We Trust" placed on the front?? It is a historical fact that George Washington invoked the help of God on many occasions and was not ashamed to voice his strong belief in God, so I will still refuse to accept the coin.

Subject: Tim Tebow
I received today at school. Very powerful! I am not necessarily a Gators fan
but Tim Tebow is one of my favorite players. Read below......
A true story shared by Tim Tebow at the Fellowship of Christian Athletes
annual dinner on Thursday, February 12, 2009. And, a follow up story shared
by Urban Meyer!
During the 2008 NCAA Football Season the National Championship University of
Florida football team faced many challenges. Everyone remembers the
passionate speech quarterback Tim Tebow delivered after the mid-season 1
point loss to Mississippi . The team morphed into a better, more cohesive
and stronger unit. The theme for the team became FINISH STRONG!
During the 4th Quarter of the SEC Championship game, facing the #1 Ranked
Alabama Crimson Tide without star running back/receiver Percy Harvin and
behind on the scoreboard, Tim Tebow and the Florida offensive team rallied
on the sidelines and passionately committed to FINISH STRONG as they went
out and scored the winning touchdown in dominating fashion. They FINISHED
During the 4th Quarter of the National Championship game, facing the #1
Ranked Oklahoma Sooners and the most dominant high powered offense in the
history of college football, the defensive team. Special teams, and the
Tebow led offensive team rallied on the sideline and passionately committed
to FINISH STRONG as they went out and shut down the Oklahoma offense and
then scored the winning touchdown to secure the win.
Once again, they FINISHED STRONG!
Tim Tebow spoke about those games and compared them to the game of life.
We face many opportunities to make good decisions and to passionately pursue
many different goals in life. Most of us pursue them passionately and many
of us successfully achieve those goals. But when we don't achieve those
goals.are you able to say that you FINISHED STRONG? In life, as we move
toward our destination, are you going to feel good about your answers to the
following questions that ultimately are waiting for you: Did you do enough?
Did you do too little? Did you finish strong?
The guy who wears number 15 and accessorizes with a 'red cape' finished his
testimonial after dinner with the following story:
A day or so before the national championship game God touched his heart
with a message.Tim needed to change the message on his black eye liner that
he wears when he is playing. All year he had a reference to Phillipians 4:13
on the eye liner which represented the following: I can do all things
through Christ which strengtheneth me. He talked to four or five others
about switching the message and everyone except his parents told him not to
do it because they had been so successful all year with the Philippians
4:13. His parents, Pam and Bob Tebow, supported the change and Tim knew it
was the right thing to do. He played the championship game with John 3:16 on
the eye liner which represents the following: For God so loved the world,
that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should
not perish, but have everlasting life.
We all know the outcome of the game, but the phone call that Tim received a
couple of days later when he was back in Gainesville was nothing short of
unbelievable. Tim answered his cell phone and it was the P.R. guy for the UF
Football game. He said, "You set a record." Tim wondered what kind of record
he was talking about. "In the 24 hour period from the start of the
championship game, JOHN 3:16 was Goggled. 93 MILLION times! No other topic
had ever been Goggled that many times in a 24 hour period of time."
Follow up story from Urban Meyer, Coach of the 2008 National Champion
University Florida football team:
As Coach Meyer was introduced next, he looked out at the 400 attendees and
said, "How do you follow that?" as he referred to Tim's testimonial.
Coach Meyer then shared a few stories and then introduced his last story
with the following introduction: We all hear about the incredible family Tim
is a part of. With everything going on in the world, you just know there is
no way Pam and Bob Tebow can be as perfect as they are made out to be.
I am here to tell you I witnessed the most amazing conversation which is the
truest testimonial to how incredibly good the Tebow's truly are.
A few days after the championship game I sat at a table in the back of the
Ballyhoo restaurant with Tim, Pam and Bob Tebow. It was just the four of us
and I listened in amazement as Tim's future about moving to the next level
of football was decided. Unbelievably, the NFL was never once mentioned.
Tim's dad started the conversation by saying that Brett Farve spoke about
his faith and no one ever listened. Here was a future Hall of Fame
quarterback and no one heard his message. Tim then said." I can think of 93
million reasons why I would want to stay in school and play my senior year
at the University of Florida ."
That's how the decision was made.
Which platform would provide Tim with the best opportunity to share the word
of God? As you now kn ow, playing his senior year for the University of
Florida would be that choice.
And, is there any doubt about Tim's passionate commitment to FINISH STRONG?

Brannon Howse: Topic One: Brannon's first guest is Wallid Shoebat. Mr. Shoebat is a former Muslim terrorist who was involved in bombings overseas. Mr. Shoebat came to America to actually indoctrinate College age Americans with the radical worldview of Islam. Mr. Shoebat studied the Bible and became a Christian. Mr. Shoebat says that Obama is wrong and America is at war with Islam. He explains why Obama has deep Muslim leanings. If Obama is not a truly practicing Muslim, this is being overlooked by Muslim leaders and nations because Obama is doing their bidding. Mr. Shoebat reveals that Hitler had Muslims in Nazi uniforms and that Hitler and Muslims were united in their slaughter and hatred of Jews and Christians. Thus for Obama to say that Islam has contributed to the world and our nation is false. There has not been one positive contribution to America through Islam because their hatred, violence and because their Constitution is the Koran which is opposed to our U.S. Constitution. Mr. Shoebat reports how Obama is working with Muslim Congressman Keith Ellison who took his oath on the Koran. Ellison is working with Obama to bring Muslims to work inside the White House. Mr. Shoebat explains what will come to America if we fail in the battle against radical Islam. Brannon’s second guest is Amy Phil. Amy is working to warn Americans about the MOTHERS Act that has passed the U.S. House and is now in the U.S. Senate. The MOTHERS Act is a bill which will increase mental health screening of pregnant women and new mothers, despite the fact that the widely accepted treatment for women diagnosed with postpartum depression is antidepressant drugs¬ documented by the U.S. FDA to cause worsening depression, mania, psychosis, suicidal and homicidal ideation, spontaneous abortions, birth defects and sudden infant death.

|The Bubble Will Burst Sooner Rather Than Later||Tuesday, January 20, 2009|
|The Government We Deserve||By Howard Galganov|
If it will be remembered for anything, it will be remembered for its platitudinous negativity.
EVERY news outlet I turned to in the USA or Canada sang the praises of then President Elect Barack Obama’s anticipated Inauguration Speech, INCLUDING FOX News.
They spoke or wrote about the forthcoming Obama Inauguration Speech as if it was to be the Sermon From The Mount.
They, the media, declared that the Obama Inauguration Speech WILL BE THE BEST Inauguration Speech in history, that will set the new American agenda for the next 100 years.
IT WAS NONE OF THAT – NOT EVEN CLOSE.
The Obama Inauguration Speech was filled with platitudes that basically said:
We will fix America. As if the USA was broken.
We will restore our reputation in the world. As if the opinion of the rest of the world really means something when ONLY the USA is ready to step up to the plate.
We will revert back to our Constitution that will not torture prisoners. As if torture is something Americans do as policy.
We will get back to work. As if America doesn’t work.
This speech went on, and on, and on, as if America is a failed nation that has to be rebuilt from the foundation up. As if the talent, the willingness and the ability were all there, only needing Obama to bring them together.
Nowhere in his speech were the words YES WE CAN or CHANGE. There were, according to estimates, some TWO MILLION people in Washington to hear and see the Inauguration.
But, there weren’t the wild applause and the fainting women as we’ve witnessed in just about all of his campaign speeches.
There were some tear stained cheeks, especially upon Black faces in the audience, who consumed the moment with great pride in the knowledge that one of their own has made it to the Highest Office on the planet; understandably so.
But, there was no great moment that set the agenda for the rest of all time. There was nothing said by Obama to make me believe that tomorrow is going to be a better day because of his victory.
All I saw in looking at him, and in hearing his words, was an arrogant man who won a great prize for HIMSELF - who doesn’t have a real plan of what to do now that the prize is his.
It’s easy to make election speeches, especially AWESOME election speeches when you have the ability to speak and deliver as fabulously as Barack Obama can. But, it’s a different matter altogether when you have to make a speech of real substance once the time for electioneering platitudes is over.
Barack Obama’s approval rating is 80%, and that’s before he has done anything. Imagine how low it will fall the first time he screws-up, or makes a bad decision, or makes no decision at all, as his previous voting record shows?
Imagine what will happen to his approval rating when he continues to look more like Bush, than like the Savior he has passed himself off to be?
Imagine what his LEFTIST something-for-nothing bunch support-base will think of him when they still have to pay their rent, make their car payments, and continue to live on Hamburger-Helper as he lectures to them from his new Ivory Tower?
Imagine what the world will think of him, as America’s Foreign Policy will be decided by Committee, rather than by the Commander In Chief. Or, when Hillary Clinton places HER Foreign Policy above his?
I will sum up this whole sordid affair with the following:
As George W Bush came into the White House 8 years ago, the Clinton Team removed the W’s from all the White House computer keyboards. They trashed the offices, and left a mess behind for the Bush Team to clean up.
Bill Clinton did the minimum expected of an outgoing President in terms of handing the reigns of power over to his successor.
Now fast forward 8 very long and very hard years for President George W Bush, who absorbed the worst kind of verbal abuse, even while he kept America and the rest of the world safe.
Unlike other Presidents, the attacks on George W Bush were very personal, more to do with the unearned and unfounded hatred the LEFT and Leftist media had for the man, rather than with the man’s policies.
But he took it. He absorbed it all. And he NEVER once openly complained while he did his job for America and the world.
Yet, after all of this, George W Bush left his White House in dignity, and orchestrated the most complete and respectful transition imaginable, so his incoming successor and team would be properly briefed, up to speed, and ready to govern the minute after the Inauguration.
For his troubles, and for his unbelievable personal sacrifice, when George Bush took his seat behind the podium, thousands, if not 10’s of thousands, or perhaps hundreds of thousands of Barack “Disciples” chanted:
Na Na Na Na – Na Na Na Na – Goodbye – Goodbye.
How much more disrespectful could they have possibly been? Obama will deliver the government most of the people deserve.
Best Regards . . .
