Did you know that the White House has notified all military funeral service departments to immediately remove the words “the President” and insert the words “Secretary of Defense” from the funeral services of veterans? The sentence has traditionally been: “On behalf of the President of the United States and a grateful nation, I wish to present you with this flag in appreciation for your husband’s (or son’s or daughter’s) service…” With these words, the American flag, so carefully folded for this moment, is given to the appropriate family member.An officer who gave the flag to a family member after using the words “The Secretary of Defense and a grateful nation…” was approached by the recipient’s nephew. This information was brought to my attention via an email. I checked it out with Snopes. The nephew asked the flag presenter why the words “Secretary of Defense” were used rather than the traditional “President of the United States .” His answer: “The White House notified all military funeral detachments to immediately remove ‘the President’ and insert ‘the Secretary of Defense’. Though Snopes is a bastion of liberal thought and gives a long rationalization as to why it was done, it is true.Why is this important? It shows the total lack of respect America ’s President has for us, our military, and their families.

I have always wanted to have my family history traced, but I can't afford to spend a lot of money to do it. Any suggestions?
Sam in California .
Register as a Republican, and run for public office.
I have an immoral and criminal past. I have always wanted to have that part of my life erased, but I can't afford to spend a lot of money to do it. Any suggestions?

Dear Sam's Son,
Register as a Democrat, and run for public office.
Somehow the truth hurts, and this may be it.
In the coming New Year, 2012, both Groundhog Day and the State of the Union address will occur on the same day.
This is an ironic juxtaposition of events.
One involves a meaningless ritual in which we look to an insignificant
creature of little intelligence for prognostication.
The other involves a groundhog.

Barack Obama's 32 Month Report Cardby Rich CarrollCopy this article. You will need researched material to mail your liberal friends and/or relatives.Mr. Hope and Change wants to create a nation humbled; humiliated, casting-aside capitalism and individual freedoms for one where we the people are government controlled. This would be a system that genuflects mediocrity, steals personal aspiration and opportunity, and punishes those who strive to succeed.A gallon of regular gasoline the day Obama was inaugurated was $1.79 on average in the U.S. Today that price is $3.59, a 100.6% increase. The number of food stamp recipients has risen since Obama took office from 31,983,716 to 43,200,878, a 35.1% jump. Long term unemployment soared 146.2% during the same 32 month period from 2,600,000 to 6,400,000. Staggering hope and change isn't it?American citizens living in poverty have risen 9.5% from 39,800,000 to 43,600,000, and the number of unemployed has jumped almost 25% from 11,616,000 to 14,485,000 as of August 31, 2011. The number of unemployed blacks has risen from 12.6% at the end of George Bush's term to 15.8% today, a 25.4% increase, and finally, our national debt is up 34.4% from 10.627 trillion to 14,278 trillion *Keep these figures in mind as we recount the number of firsts for this presidency:First President to refuse to show a valid birth certificate.First President to apply for college aid as a foreign student, then deny he was a foreigner.First President to have a social security number from a state he has never lived in.First President to preside over a cut to the credit rating of the United States .First President to violate the War Powers Act.First President to be held in contempt of court for illegally obstructing oil drilling in the Gulf of Mexico .First President to defy a Federal Judges court order to cease implementing the Health Care Reform Law.First President to require all Americans to purchase a product from a third party.First President to spend a trillion dollars on shovel-ready jobs and later admit there was no such thing as shovel-ready jobs.First President to abrogate bankruptcy law to turn over control of companies to his union supporters.First President to by-pass Congress and implement the Dream Act through executive fiat.First President to order a secret amnesty program that stopped the deportation of illegal immigrants across the U.S. , including those with criminal convictions.First President to demand a company hand-over $20 billion to one of his political appointees.First President to terminate Americas ability to put a man in space.First President to encourage racial discrimination and intimidation at polling places.First President to have a law signed by an auto-pen without being present.First President to arbitrarily declare an existing law unconstitutional and refuse to enforce it.First President to threaten insurance companies if they publicly speak-out on the reasons for their rate increases.First President to tell a major manufacturing company in which state they are allowed to locate a factory.First President to file lawsuits against the states he swore an oath to protect (AZ, WI, OH, IN)First President to withdraw an existing coal permit that had been properly issued years ago.First President to fire an inspector general of Ameri-corps for catching one of his friends in a corruption case.First President to appoint 45 Czars to replace elected officials in his office.First President to golf 73 separate times in his first two and a half years in office.First President to hide his medical, educational and travel records.First President to win a Nobel Peace Prize for doing NOTHING to earn it.First President to coddle American enemies while alienating Americas allies.First President to publicly bow to Americas enemies while refusing to salute the U.S. Flag.First President to go on multiple global apology tours.First President to go on 17 lavish vacations, including date nights and Wednesday evening White House parties for his friends, paid for by the taxpayer.First President to refuse to wear the U.S. Flag lapel pin.First President to have 22 personal servants (taxpayer funded) for his wife.First President to keep a dog trainer on retainer for $102,000.00 a year at taxpayer expense.First President to repeat the Holy Qur'an tells us, and openly admit the early morning call of the Azan (Islamic call to worship) is the most beautiful sound on earth.Remember that 32 months of Obama White House we the people have accumulated national debt at a rate more than 27 times as fast as during the rest of our nation's entire history, as the Obama's plan their next extravagant vacation to the Indonesian Island nation of Bali .Hope and change anyone ?????????* sources: U.S. Energy Information Administration, Wall Street Journal, Bureau of Labor Statistics, US Dept of Labor, Standard & Poors/Case-Shiller, Federal Reserve, US Treasury, Heritage Foundation.

Subject: Woman on 4th Marriage
A woman who had been married three times walked into a bridal shop one day and told the sales clerk that she was looking for a wedding gown for her fourth wedding.
"Of course, madam," replied the sales clerk, "exactly what type and color dress are you looking for?"
The bride to be said: "A long frilly white dress with a veil."
The sales clerk hesitated a bit, then said, "Please don't take this the wrong way, but gowns of that nature are considered more appropriate for brides who are being married the first time - for those who are a bit more innocent, if you know what I mean? Perhaps ivory or sky blue would be nice?"
"Well," replied the customer, a little peeved at the clerk's directness, "I can assure you that a white gown would be quite appropriate. Believe it or not, despite all my marriages, I remain as innocent as a first-time bride.
You see, my first husband was so excited about our wedding, he died as we were checking into our hotel.”
"My second husband and I got into such a terrible fight in the limo on our way to our honeymoon that we had that wedding annulled immediately and never spoke to each other again."
"What about your third husband?" asked the sales clerk.
"That one was a Democrat ," said the woman, "and every night for four years, he just sat on the edge of the bed and told me how good it was going to be, but nothing ever happened."
Anything but govern for Bam
The New Jersey Republican has a gift for getting to the heart of things, and his broadside against the president over the debt bomb is Exhibit A. His assertion, framed as a question, makes the case against Obama better than anything heard from the actual candidates.
Christie’s decision not to run remains a disappointment, but he is a valuable player who can help sharpen the fuzzy aim of Mitt Romney, the man he supports. Christie’s consistent theme is that Obama has defaulted on the responsibility to provide presidential leadership during a national crisis.
On Monday, the GOP heavyweight called Obama “a bystander in the Oval Office” for ducking the congressional committee charged with finding $1.2 trillion in deficit reductions over 10 years.
“I was angry this weekend, listening to the spin coming out of the administration about the failure of the super committee, and that the president knew it was doomed for failure, so he didn’t get involved,” Christie said. “Well, then, what the hell are we paying you for? ‘It’s doomed for failure so I’m not getting involved?’ Well, what have you been doing, exactly?”
The questions are rhetorical in that we know what the president has been doing and why. He plays golf and campaigns. Governing is beneath him.
He doesn’t talk much to members of Congress or his own Cabinet. They’re beneath him.
His connection to the public consists of speeches before large crowds, and he ducks behind the curtain and into the security bubble as soon as he finishes. The people are beneath him.
Warped by a sense of entitlement and self-aggrandizement, Obama refuses to take responsibility for finding practical solutions to problems. He prefers the glory of transformation rather than the roll-the-sleeves-up work of reform.
When he can’t get his way, he appoints a czar and ignores Congress. Democracy is beneath him.
He could have brokered a deficit deal, but doing so would have demolished his campaign slogan that Republicans are to blame for everything. Any deal would give him ownership of the results, and end the fiction that politics are beneath him.
In fact, he’s all politics, all the time. His idea of bipartisanship is that everybody agrees with him.
He’s so bad at the job that the frequent comparisons to Jimmy Carter are unfair to Carter. The former peanut farmer was a terrible president, but he was at least sincere in his starchy disdain for the country.
TEACHING IDIOCYBy Lee Duigon
October 6, 2011
Let’s take another look at public education in America—the greatest system for breeding idiocy That the world has ever known. First we'll pay another visit to Fort Worth, Texas, where folly may be viewed in microcosm.
Last week the Fort Worth school district rescinded the suspension of a 14-year-old Honor Student for saying “homosexuality is wrong.” The alleged teacher who had him suspended had decorated his classroom with a poster of two men kissing, telling his students that Homosexuality is now “the way it is” and they'd “better learn to accept it.” When the boy’s Mother showed up with a lawyer, school officials backed down. Then they turned around and suspended the “teacher”—with pay, of course.
Now the teacher’s back to work, as reported in “the premier media source for LGBT Texas,” Dallasvoice.com.
The salient facts that emerge from the news report are these.
1. The “teacher” in question is openly “gay.”2. So is a key member of the Fort Worth Independent School DistrictBoard of Trustees.3. Other teachers at the high school are also overtly practicing homosexuals.4. As soon as the teachers’ union got involved, school officials abandoned all pretense of disciplining the “teacher.”5. No one has denied that this wretched man did indeed display, in his classroom, a picture of two men making out.
So, folks, there’s your Red State public school district: deep in the heart of Texas beats the heart of Massachusetts. There’s no difference. In all 50 states, the teachers’ unions control what happens in the public schools. Visit their websites. Read their declarations. They are fanatically committed to promoting homosexuality and socialism. To send your children to their schools, the public schools, is to consent to their agenda.
Now let’s turn to New York City, where the “Occupy Wall Street” protesters—all of them fine products of American education, honed to a fine edge of foolishness by “higher education”—have released a list of demands. Presumably if the American people accede to these demands, the protesters will go back to whatever dunce factory they escaped from.
Anyhow, here are the demands.
1. End “Free Trade” by slapping tariffs on everything imported —and while we're at it, raise the minimum wage to $20 per hour. Yes, that’s two demands, not one; but who says these people know the difference between one and two?2. They demand “a Universal single payer healthcare system,” with all private insurers banned.3. Pay everyone “a guaranteed living wage income regardless of employment.” Hot dog! Nobody will have to work anymore.4. They demand “free college education.” They haven't got the foggiest idea who'll pay for it. Oh, such wisdom! Isn't it wonderful, what you can learn in college nowadays? But to continue:5. Abolish “the fossil fuel economy.”6. They demand “one trillion dollars in infrastructure spending now,” and7. Another trillion for “ecological restoration”! (Whatever that is.)8. They demand “racial and gender equal rights amendments” and9. “open borders migration,” an end to sovereign countries as we know them.10. The tenth demand is for American elections to conform to some “international standard,” probably to prevent Republicans from winning any. This is dwarfed by:11, “immediate across the board debt forgiveness for all.” The dealer doesn't get the rest of the money you owe him for the car, but that’s his tough luck, the capitalist pig.12. “Outlaw all credit reporting agencies.” How dare they snitch on deadbeats?And No. 13 is some drivel about union organizing.
Each of these demands is more asinine than the one before it. Egged on by hobgoblins like Michael Moore and Van Jones, the protesters flaunt the ignorance, the sheer fantasy, and the total lack of logic bestowed on them by our country’s public education system.
After twelve Years of grade school and several years of college, and the expenditure of staggering amounts of public and private money, they display the intellectual capacity and the emotional development of spoiled six-year-olds.
At no time in our history has it been more glaringly obvious that the day God withdraws His Grace, America goes down the drain—adios! We are spending a trillion dollars a year to turn a whole generation into intellectual paraplegics, incompetent, incapable, unable to live except as the perpetual dependents of a paternalistic government. The upside of that scheme is that it’s very nice for the ruling class, who get to stay in power for as long as that society endures.The downside is that our civilization will soon cease to be of interest to anyone but puzzled archeologists who will wonder how so many could have lost so much, so fast.
Pray for our deliverance. Maybe, for one last time, God will hear us.
We need a miracle.....

Worth watching. I'm not politicing - form your own opinion after.If you disagree, merely "delete".I don't know how you feel about Newt, but just watch the way he handles the leftist reporters in these clips of the last debate. Can you imagine how he would wipe the floor with Obama in a one-on-one debate.
Watch this and then tell me, "who is the smartest man in the room."
