Subject: FW: The Green Bay Packers are good for America

Every Red Blooded American should jump in line to support the Green Bay Packers ! The Packers defeated the Chicago Bears on Sunday afternoon thus earning them the opportunity to go to the Super Bowl. By doing so, they saved the Hard-Working, Red-Blooded, Taxpaying Americans literally several million dollars of tax money. How you say? Simple... we were told that if the Chicago Bears had won, President Obama (and probably his family) would be attending the Super Bowl to cheer on his hometown team. Since the Bears lost....the President won't be attending. The money saved from not using Air Force 1, the limousines, all the additional security, and let's not forget Michelle Obama's entourage, is literally several million dollars! Therefore every American should cheer on the Green Bay Packers at the Super Bowl to show them our gratitude. Oh....and let's not forget to thank Chicago Bear's Quarterback Jay Cutler for his role in the Packer's success! With that said...let's circulate this e-mail to everyone we know so they can understand why they should cheer for America's team ... The Green Bay Packers !

Why Obama will repeal Obamacare in 60 days.
As the Loughner Lefties at the New York Times realized, they jumped the shark
in blaming the Arizona Massacre on Sarah Palin and the Tea Party Right, they
smoothly shifted their strategy yesterday again on 1/12.

In a transparent ploy to monkey wrench the 112th Congress' program to
dismantle ObamaCare and other Dem disasters, the NYT is now claiming that
Boehner & Co must "play a less partisan role," and not "allow the House to
slide back into confrontational politics." Translation: Republicans need to
surrender to the Democrats.

And Boehner's response? As Eliza Doolittle said to Professor Henry Higgins,
"Not bloody likely!" Pres. Zero and the Dems (and the Enemedia) are going to get
the shock of their lives when they learn what Boehner has planned for them.

Get ready for this, folks, for it's going to knock the polka dots off your
undies. This is going to make Boehner's bones.

Remember how Reagan made his? On August 3, 1981, 13,000 air traffic
controllers went on strike, shutting down 7,000 flights at the peak of the
summer travel season. They demanded $10,000 a year salary increases and an
extortionate array of increased benefits.

Reagan branded the strike illegal and gave them 48 hours to return to work
or else he would fire them all. They controllers laughed at him for what
they thought was a foolish bluff. Except for 2,000 who did return to work,
joining 3,000 FAA supervisors and 900 military controllers. 80% of flights
went back to normal.

48 hours later on August 5, Reagan fired all 11,000 striking controllers -
and imposed a lifetime ban on rehiring them. Then he had the Federal Labor
Relations Authority disband PATCO - the Professional Air Traffic Controllers
Organization. Not only were the strikers permanently fired, their union
ceased to exist.

That's how to make your bones in Washington. No one ever messed with Reagan

So how is John Boehner going to do it? Hold on to those undies now... He
plans to get Pres. Zero to sign, not veto, a bill to repeal ObamaCare.

Yes, repeal, repeal the whole damn thing, Pres. Zero's pride and joy. Here's the

First, the fallback remains: defund it, refuse to appropriate any money to
implement any of it. But to go for the jugular means repeal. Of course, any
stand-alone repeal bill such as HR 2 passed by the House will be blocked in
the Senate, or if passed faces a certain presidential veto that cannot
possibly be overridden.
HR 2, the "Repealing the Job-Killing Health Care Law Act," takes 36 words to
eliminate 2,000 pages of ObamaCare legislation: "Effective as of the
enactment of Public Law 111-148, such Act is repealed, and the provisions of
law amended or repealed by such Act are restored or revived as if such Act
had not been enacted."

It will be voted on and passed by the House next week. It is only a warning
shot. For its destiny is not to be a stand-alone bill, but an amendment to
two other bills.

These two bills form the sides of a vise in which Dem cojones are
inextricably trapped. They are: the CR (Continuing Resolution) to fund the
government past March 4 when the current CR ends; and the bill to raise the
debt ceiling (call it the DR, the debt raise).

These bills are "must pass" bills - for if they don't pass, the government
shuts down, no checks go out to pay for anybody or anything, and government
debt gets defaulted on.

Thus the repeal strategy: HR 2 will be appended to the next CR and the DR by
the House. That's step one. Step two is for McConnell and DeMint to block
any passage of either in the Senate unless HR 2 is appended.

And to keep those Dem cojones in an ever-tightening vise, both the CR and DR
will be very short term - say 60 days for the former and $100 billion
instead of a trillion for the latter, maybe less. This forces the Dems to
fight the battle for more spending over and over again.

Step three is where it gets really interesting. The "ghost of 1995" haunting
the Pubs is Gingrich forcing just such a government shutdown back then,
which Clinton won and the Gingrich Pubs disastrously lost.

To avoid this happening again, companion legislation will be introduced in
the House specifying those "essential services" of the federal government
that would continue to be paid for at current levels should a CR or DR not
be passed.

Call it the Essential Services or ES Bill. It will include the standard
popular goodies people demand and the Dems scaremonger with: Social
Security, Medicare, Medicaid and other payments to individuals (but not to
government employees - they get nada).

There is an argument over how long or short the ES list of government
functions should be. Yet there is little need for it to be overly-long if it
is amendable at any time by a simple concurrent resolution.

That way, when the Dems find some cute starving children who will die
because of the heartlessly inhuman Republicans' refusal to spend taxpayers'
money to save them, the Pubs have the option to add the relevant program to
the ES list if the public clamor (not the Dem's) is loud enough.

And of course, the ES list would have no "non-essential" services or
programs like the EPA, or funding for any agency to write and implement any
new regulations whatever.
With the ES Bill, the vise really starts to squeeze. How will Harry Reid
explain he opposes the ES Bill and would rather have a full government
shutdown instead; that he would rather keep ObamaCare on life support rather
than have seniors get their Social Security checks or Medicare payments? How
will Pres. Zero?

In other words, the ES Bill puts the onus, fault, blame, and responsibility
for a government shutdown on the Dems - not on Boehner & Co. Both Boehner
and McConnell believe that there are enough Senate Dems wanting to keep
their seats in 2012 to vote for the ES Bill, and the HR 2-appended CR & DR

Which means they will be on Pres. Zero's desk for his signature or veto. If he
doesn't sign them, all government services stop, pretty much immediately,
and the government starts defaulting on Treasury interest payments. If he
only signs the ES Bill, the same thing happens save for continued funding
only for "essential services."

Boehner is betting Pres. Zero will buckle and sign the HR 2-appended CR & DR
bills. With that, ObamaCare ceases to exist as if it never happened.

If he vetoes them and just signs the ES bill, Boehner still wins. Government
has been truncated to "essential services" at a stroke, and now the whole
debate is what government programs are "essential" or not, with the Dems on
the defensive in the debate. This is orders of magnitude better than
defunding one program at a time.

And if he vetoes all three, shutting the government down just to save
ObamaCare, he gets the full and total blame for the shutdown -- a shutdown
that would leave vast swathes of government programs and agencies in ruins.

Once that happens, millions of Americans would discover two amazing things:
that they can get along just fine without all these Federal programs and
agencies - and with the government out of the way, they have innumerable
opportunities to get a job or start a business they didn't have with the
government in the way.

Oh, yes - a shutdown of course disintegrates the implementation of any part
of ObamaCare, so it's useless to resist, Mr. President, it's best to cut
your losses and sign, not veto.

If Boehner pulls this off, it doesn't just make his bones - he will be the
King of Washington DC. Pres. Zero will be castrated. President Eunuch. His only
possible hope for 2012 will be to work with the House and Senate Republicans
in creating an environment for solid economic recovery that he can take
credit for.

So... the trillion dollar question is: does Boehner have the stones to make
his bones?

Until this repeal strategy emerged, all the talk was about trading raising
the debt ceiling for a bunch of budget cuts. That's peanuts compared to
zeroing out ObamaCare, which will save hundreds of billions by that alone.
Further, individual budget cuts, Boehner is advised, will be far more of a
political liability. Remember how Tim Coburn got wasted (even by Fox News!)
for opposing the $4 billion entitlement given to the 9/11 "first responders"
by the Lame Schmucks? That's just a hint, Boehner is being warned, of what's
to come with attempts to cut the budget a bite at a time.

Far better, and far more likely of success, to go for the gold, run for the
roses, make your bones doing what you were elected to do: Repeal, not just
defund, ObamaCare. Repeal it in less than sixty days from now - by

The final decision hasn't been made, but Boehner, Cantor and the House
leadership are edging up to it. They need all the encouragement and backup
they can get. Let's give it to them. Let's make our bones too.

A good education story....

A former Sergeant, having served his time with the Marine Corps,  took a new
job as a school teacher; but just before the school year started, he injured his back.

He was required to wear a plaster cast around the upper part of his body.  Fortunately,
the cast fit under his shirt and wasn't noticeable. On the first day of class, he found himself
assigned to the toughest students in the school.
The smart-alecky punks, having already heard the new teacher was a former Marine, were leery of him and decided to see how tough he really was, before trying any pranks. Walking confidently into the rowdy classroom, the new teacher opened the window wide and sat down at his desk.

When a strong breeze made his tie flap, he picked up a stapler and promptly stapled the tie to his chest.
.....Dead silence... He had no trouble with discipline that year.

George Washington statue is hidden at the MLK rally in Columbia , SC

The annual MLK observance at the state house in Columbia SC had an interesting twist this year. The event is held on the north side steps of the statehouse. Prominent at that location is a large bronze statue of George Washington. This year, the NAACP constructed a “box” to conceal the Father of His Country from view so that participants would not be offended by his presence.
I could hardly believe my eyes when I saw this picture of the MLK Day rally in Columbia , South Carolina yesterday.  This rally was sponsored by the NAACP and they said that they covered the statue because they “didn’t want to offend anyone”. Really?  George Washington is the father of this nation.  How is he offensive to anyone?  Can you imagine what would happen if we covered the statue of Dr. King on President’s Day?  Of course, this disgusting display of anti-Americanism wasn’t covered at all by the national media and only the local paper in Columbia had a little piece on it.  It has been covered a little by the blog-world and I think the word needs to get out to the general public that this is what the NAACP is all about…..militant, hateful and racist.  In doing this, they disrespected Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.  I bet he would be equally disgusted.  Awful.

THIS SHOULD OFFEND AT LEAST TWO GROUPS THAT HAVE NO SENSE OF HUMOR............................................

At the end of a tiny deserted bar in  downtown Detroit sat a huge black man.
  He was having a few beers,  when a short, well dressed, and obviously gay man walked in and sat beside  him.    After  three or four beers, the gay man got the courage to say a few words to the  big black man..  Leaning  over towards him, he whispered,  "Do you  want a blow job?"
  At this, the massive black man  leaped up with fire in his eyes, and smacked the crap out of the gay  man, knocking him swiftly off his  stool.   He proceeded to beat him all the way  out of the bar, before leaving him bruised and  battered in the parking lot, and  returning to his seat.
  Amazed, the bartender quickly  brought over another beer to the black man, and said,  "I've never  seen you react like that.  " What did he say to you?"
  "I don't know,"  the black man  replied.  "Something about a job."

Fw: Muslim Union Cuts Benefits for Martyrs

Muslim Union cuts benefits for martyrs

Muslim suicide bombers in Britain are set to begin a three-day strike next Monday in a dispute over the number of virgins they are entitled to in the afterlife. Emergency talks with Al Qaeda have so far failed to produce an agreement.

The unrest began last Tuesday when Al Qaeda announced that the number of virgins a suicide bomber would receive after his death would be cut by 25% this February from 72 to 60. A company spokesman said increases in recent years in the number of suicide bombings have resulted in a shortage of virgins in the afterlife.

The suicide bombers' union, the British Organization of Occupational Martyrs ( or B.O.O.M. ) responded with a statement saying the move was unacceptable to its members and called for strike vote. General Secretary Abdullah Amir told the press, "Our members are literally working themselves to death in the cause of Jihad. We don't ask for much in return, but to be treated like this is like a kick in the teeth".

Speaking from his shed in Tipton in the West Midlands , Al Qaeda chief executive Osama bin Laden explained, "I sympathize with our workers' concerns, but Al Qaeda is simply not in a position to meet their demands. They are simply not accepting the realities of modern-day Jihad in a competitive marketplace. Thanks to Western depravity, there is now a chronic shortage of virgins in the afterlife. It's a straight choice between reducing expenditures or laying people off. I don't like cutting benefits, but I'd hate to have to tell 3,000 of my staff that they won't be able to blow themselves up."

Spokespersons for the union in the North East of England, Ireland , Wales , and the entire Australian continent stated that the change would not hurt their membership as there are few virgins in their areas anyway.

According to some industry sources, the recent drop in the number of suicide bombings has been attributed to the emergence of Scottish singing star, Susan Boyle. Many Muslim jihadists now know what a virgin looks like and have reconsidered their benefit packages.

Why did Bernie Madoff go to prison?  To make it simple, he talked people into investing with him.  Trouble was, he didn't invest their money.  As time rolled on he simply took the money from the new investors to pay off the old investors.  Finally there were too many old investors and not enough money from new investors coming in to keep the payments going.
Next thing you know Madoff is one of the most hated men in  America   and he is off to jail.
Some of you know this.  But not enough of you..  Madoff did to his investors what the government has been doing to us for over 70 years with Social Security.  There is no meaningful difference between the two schemes, except that one was operated by a private individual who is now in jail, and the other is operated by politicians who enjoy perks, privileges and status in spite of their actions.

Do you need a side-by-side comparison here?  Well here's a nifty little chart.
M-Takes money from investors with the promise that the money will be invested and made available to them later.
SS-Takes money from wage earners with the promise that the money will be invested in a "Trust Fund" (Lock Box) and made available later.
M-Instead of investing the money Madoff spends it on nice homes in the Hamptons   and yachts
SS-Instead of depositing money in a Trust Fund the politicians  transfer it to the General Revenue Fund and use it for general spending and vote buying.
M-When the time comes to pay the investors back Madoff simply uses some of the new funds from newer investors to pay back the older investors.
SS-When benefits for older investors become due the politicians pay them with money taken from younger and newer wage earners to pay the older geezers.
M-When Madoff's scheme is discovered all hell breaks loose.  New investors won't give him any more cash.
SS-When Social Security runs out of money the politicians try to force the taxpayers to send them some more; or they cancel S/S to all those who paid into it.Bernie Madoff is in jail.
Politicians remain in  Washington .. with fat medical and retirement benefits.

Required reading and watching! - Noel
              Only two blacks were newly  elected to congress this cycle, and both are
Republican. Col West is from southern  Florida, a bastion of the  Democratic

Party.  He won in a  walk.


It is worth the viewing. This new  Congressman was an extremely popular

commander in Iraq.  He was forced to  retire because during an intense combat

action a few of his men were captured. At the same time his men had

captured one of the guys who were with  the Iraqis who captured his men. 


Knowing that time was crucial and his  interrogators were not getting

anywhere with the prisoner COL West took  matters into his own hands.  He

burst into the room and demanded thru an  interpreter that the prisoner tell

him where his men were being taken.   The prisoner refused so COL West took

out his pistol and placed it into the  prisoner's crotch and fired.  Then the

 COL told the prisoner that the next shot  would not miss.  So the prisoner

said he would show where the American  service members were being taken. The

Americans were rescued.  Some one  filed a report on incorrect handling of

prisoners.  COL West was forced to  retire. COL West was just elected in

November 2010 to Congress from Florida.   During the elections he was part of

a  panel on how to handle or how to relate to Muslims.  You  will see his

answer here.

Fw: Big Changes Are Coming - No Turning Back

 Look at the 19 facts of what has happened to our country from 1999 to 2008.


Changes Are Coming - Things
We'll Be Saying Goodbye To

From Clark McClelland


Whether these changes are good or bad depends in part on how we adapt to them. But, ready or not, here they come.

1. The Post Office.  Get ready to imagine a world without the post office. They are so deeply in financial trouble that there is probably no way to sustain it long term. Email, Fed Ex, and UPS have just about wiped out the minimum revenue needed to keep the post office alive. Most of your mail every day is junk mail and bills.

2. The Check.   Britain is already laying the groundwork to do away with checks by 2018. It costs the financial system billions of dollars a year to process checks. Plastic cards and online transactions will lead to the eventual demise of the check. This plays right into the death of the post office. If you never paid your bills by mail and never received them by mail, the post office would absolutely go out of business.

3. The Newspaper.  The younger generation simply doesn't read the newspaper. They certainly don't subscribe to a daily delivered print edition. That may go the way of the milkman and the laundry man. As for reading the paper online, get ready to pay for it. The rise in mobile Internet devices and e-readers has caused all the newspaper and magazine publishers to form an alliance. They have met with Apple, Amazon, and the major cell phone companies to develop a model for paid subscription services.

4. The Book.  You say you will never give up the physical book that you hold in your hand and turn the literal pages. I said the same thing about downloading music from iTunes. I wanted my hard copy CD. But I quickly changed my mind when I discovered that I could get albums for half the price without ever leaving home to get the latest music. The same thing will happen with books. You can browse a bookstore online and even read a preview chapter before you buy. And the price is less than half that of a real book. And think of the convenience! Once you start flicking your fingers on the screen instead of the book, you find that you are lost in the story, can't wait to see what happens next, and you forget that you're holding a gadget instead of a book.

5. The Land Line Telephone. Unless you have a large family and make a lot of local calls, you don't need it anymore. Most people keep it simply because they've always had it. But you are paying double charges for that extra service. All the cell phone companies will let you call customers using the same cell provider for no charge against your minutes.

6. Music. This is one of the saddest parts of the change story. The music industry is dying a slow death. Not just because of illegal downloading. It's the lack of innovative new music being given a chance to get to the people who would like to hear it. Greed and corruption is the problem. The record labels and the radio conglomerates are simply self-destructing. Over 40% of the music purchased today is "catalog items," meaning traditional music that the public is familiar with. Older established artists. This is also true on the live concert circuit. To explore this fascinating and disturbing topic further, check out the book, "Appetite for Self-Destruction" by Steve Knopper, and the video documentary, "Before the Music Dies."

7. Television. Revenues to the networks are down dramatically. Not just because of the economy. People are watching TV and movies streamed from their computers. And they're playing games and doing lots of other things that take up the time that used to be spent watching TV. Prime time shows have degenerated down to lower than the lowest common denominator. Cable rates are skyrocketing and commercials run about every 4 minutes and 30 seconds. I say good riddance to most of it. It's time for the cable companies to be put out of our misery. Let the people choose what they want to watch online and through Netflix.

8. The "Things" That You Own. Many of the very possessions that we used to own are still in our lives, but we may not actually own them in the future. They may simply reside in "the cloud." Today your computer has a hard drive and you store your pictures, music, movies, and documents. Your software is on a CD or DVD, and you can always re-install it if need be. But all of that is changing. Apple, Microsoft, and Google are all finishing up their latest "cloud services." That means that when you turn on a computer, the Internet will be built into the operating system. So, Windows, Google, and the Mac OS will be tied straight into the Internet. If you click an icon, it will open something in the Internet cloud. If you save something, it will be saved to the cloud. And you may pay a monthly subscription fee to the cloud provider.

In this virtual world, you can access your music or your books, or your whatever from any laptop or handheld device. That's the good news. But, will you actually own any of this "stuff" or will it all be able to disappear at any moment in a big "Poof?" Will most of the things in our lives be disposable and whimsical? It makes you want to run to the closet and pull out that photo album, grab a book from the shelf, or open up a CD case and pull out the insert.

9. Privacy. If there ever was a concept that we can look back on nostalgically, it would be privacy. That's gone. It's been gone for a long time anyway. There are cameras on the street, in most of the buildings, and even built into your computer and cell phone. But you can be sure that 24/7, "They" know who you are and where you are, right down to the GPS coordinates, and the Google Street View. If you buy something, your habit is put into a zillion profiles, and your ads will change to reflect those habits. And "They" will try to get you to buy something else. Again and again. All we will have that can't be changed are memories.



19 Facts About The Deindustrialization Of  America That Will Blow Your Mind

The  United States is rapidly becoming the very first "post-industrial" nation on the globe. All great economic empires eventually become fat and lazy and squander the great wealth that their forefathers have left them, but the pace at which  America is accomplishing this is absolutely amazing. It was  America that was at the forefront of the industrial revolution. It was  America that showed the world how to mass produce everything from automobiles to televisions to airplanes. It was the great American manufacturing base that crushed  Germany and  Japan in World War II.

But now we are witnessing the deindustrialization of  America . Tens of thousands of factories have left the  United States in the past decade alone. Millions upon millions of manufacturing jobs have been lost in the same time period. The  United States has become a nation that consumes everything in sight and yet produces increasingly little. Do you know what our biggest export is today? Waste paper. Yes, trash is the number one thing that we ship out to the rest of the world as we voraciously blow our money on whatever the rest of the world wants to sell to us.

The  United States has become bloated and spoiled and our economy is now just a shadow of what it once was. Once upon a time  America could literally out produce the rest of the world combined. Today that is no longer true, but Americans sure do consume more than anyone else in the world. If the deindustrialization of  America continues at this current pace, what possible kind of a future are we going to be leaving to our children?

Any great nation throughout history has been great at making things. So if the  United States continues to allow its manufacturing base to erode at a staggering pace how in the world can the  U.S. continue to consider itself to be a great nation? We have created the biggest debt bubble in the history of the world in an effort to maintain a very high standard of living, but the current state of affairs is not anywhere close to sustainable. Every single month  America goes into more debt and every single month  America gets poorer.

So, what happens when the debt bubble pops?

The deindustrialization of the  United States should be a top concern for every man, woman and child in the country. But sadly, most Americans do not have any idea what is going on around them. For people like that, take this article and print it out and hand it to them. Perhaps what they will read below will shock them badly enough to awaken them from their slumber.

Here are 19 stunning facts about the deindustrialization of  America :

#1 The United States has lost approximately 42,400 factories since 2001. About 75 percent of those factories employed over 500 people when they were still in operation.

#2 Dell Inc., one of  America 's largest manufacturers of computers, has announced plans to dramatically expand its operations in  China with an investment of over $100 billion over the next decade.

#3 Dell has announced that it will be closing its last large  U.S. manufacturing facility in  Winston-Salem ,  North Carolina in November. Approximately 900 jobs will be lost.

#4 In 2008, 1.2 billion cell phones were sold worldwide. So how many of them were manufactured inside the  United States ? Zero.

#5 According to a new study conducted by the Economic Policy Institute, if the U.S. trade deficit with China continues to increase at its current rate, the U.S. economy will lose over half a million jobs this year alone.

#6 As of the end of July, the  U.S. trade deficit with China had risen 18 percent compared to the same time period a year ago.

#7 The United States has lost a total of about 5.5 million manufacturing jobs since October 2000.

#8 According to Tax Notes, between 1999 and 2008 employment at the foreign affiliates of U.S. parent companies increased an astounding 30 percent to 10.1 million. During that exact same time period,  U.S. employment at American multinational corporations declined 8 percent to 21.1 million.

#9 In 1959, manufacturing represented 28 percent of  U.S. economic output. In 2008, it represented 11.5 percent.

#10 Ford Motor Company recently announced the closure of a factory that produces the Ford Ranger in  St. Paul ,  Minnesota . Approximately 750 good paying middle class jobs are going to be lost because making Ford Rangers in  Minnesota does not fit in with Ford's new "global" manufacturing strategy.

#11 As of the end of 2009, less than 12 million Americans worked in manufacturing. The last time less than 12 million Americans were employed in manufacturing was in 1941.

#12 In the United States today, consumption accounts for 70 percent of GDP. Of this 70 percent, over half is spent on services.

#13 The United States has lost a whopping 32 percent of its manufacturing jobs since the year 2000.

#14 In 2001, the  United States ranked fourth in the world in per capita broadband Internet use. Today it ranks 15th.

#15 Manufacturing employment in the  U.S. computer industry is actually lower in 2010 than it was in 1975.

#16 Printed circuit boards are used in tens of thousands of different products.    Asia now produces 84 percent of them worldwide.

#17 The United States spends approximately $3.90 on Chinese goods for every $1 that the Chinese spend on goods from the  United States .

#18 One prominent economist is projecting that the Chinese economy will be three times larger than the  U.S. economy by the year 2040.

#19 The U.S. Census Bureau says that 43.6 million Americans are now living in poverty and according to them that is the highest number of poor Americans in the 51 years that records have been kept.

So, how many tens of thousands more factories do we need to lose before we do something about it?

How many millions more Americans are going to become unemployed before we all admit that we have a very, very serious problem on our hands?

How many more trillions of dollars are going to leave the country before we realize that we are losing wealth at a pace that is killing our economy?

How many once great manufacturing cities are going to become rotting war zones like  Detroit before we understand that we are committing national economic suicide?

The deindustrialization of  America is a national crisis. It needs to be treated like one.

And to underscore the above: 11/9/10: The largest private employer in Saginaw, Michigan will soon be the city government of Beijing, as a 104-year-old unit of General Motors will be sold to new owners from China. The $450M purchase received little attention this summer, but it is a landmark deal - the first time Chinese investors have bought a U.S.  industrial operation of such scale and history.
When was the last time any member of the Administration OR Congress spoke about a plan to stop the job flow out of the USA???

Subject: FW: Little Johnny on Selling Toothbrushes - SO TRUE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



How  to Sell  Toothbrushes

The  kids filed back into class Monday morning. They were very excited. Their  weekend assignment was to sell something, then give  a
talk on productive  salesmanship.

Little Sally led off: "I  sold girl scout cookies and I made $30," she said proudly, "My sales  approach was to appeal to the customer's civil spirit and I credit that  approach for my obvious success."

"Very good," said the  teacher.

Little Jenny was next: "I  sold magazines," she said, "I made $45 and I explained to everyone that  magazines  would  keep them up on current events."

"Very good, Jenny," said  the teacher..

Eventually, it was Little  Johnny's turn. The teacher held her  breath
... Little Johnny walked  to the front of the classroom and dumped a box full of cash on the  teacher's desk. "$2,467,"  he said.
"$2,467!" cried the  teacher, "What in the world were you  selling"
"Toothbrushes," said  Little Johnny.

"Toothbrushes," echoed  the teacher, "How could you possibly sell enough tooth brushes to make  that much money?"

"I found the busiest  corner in town," said Little Johnny, "I set up a Dip & Chip stand, I  gave everybody who walked by a free  sample."

They all said the same  thing, "Hey, this tastes like dog  crap!"

Then I would say, "It is  dog crap. Wanna buy a toothbrush? I used the President  Obama  method of giving you
  something  shitty, but looks  good,  for free,  and  then making you pay to get the bad taste out of your mouth." The teacher  was speechless. . . . . . . .

Little Johnny got 5 stars  for his efforts, bless his heart. .  .

FW: Pray if you want to!

Pray if you want to!

CBS and Katie Couric must be in a panic and rushing to reassure the White House that this is not network policy--re: Andy Rooney's commentary on prayer.
 Folks, this is the year that  we RE-TAKE AMERICA & CANADA  
********* Get  Ready *********
Keep this going around the  globe. Read it and forward every time you receive it.. We  can't give up on this issue.
Andy Rooney and  Prayer
Andy Rooney says:
I don't believe in Santa Claus, but I'm not going to sue somebody for singing a Ho-Ho-Ho song in December.  I don't agree with Darwin , but I didn't go out and hire a lawyer when my high school  teacher taught his Theory of Evolution.
Life, liberty or your pursuit of happiness will not be endangered because someone says a  30-second prayer before a football game. So what's the big deal?  It's not like somebody is up there reading the entire Book of Acts.  They're just talking to a God they believe in and asking him to grant safety to the players on the field and the fans going home from the game.
But it's a Christian prayer,  some will argue.
Yes, and this is the United States of America and Canada , countries founded on Christian principles.  According to our very own phone book, Christian churches outnumber all others better than 200-to-1.  So what would you expect -- somebody chanting Hare Krishna?
If I went to a football game in Jerusalem , I  would expect to hear a Jewish prayer.
If I went to a soccer game in  Baghdad , I would expect to hear a Muslim prayer.
If I went to a ping pong match in China ,  I would expect to hear someone pray to Buddha.
And I wouldn't be offended. It wouldn't bother me one bit.
When in Rome    .....
But what about the atheists? Is another argument.
What about them? Nobody is asking them to be baptized.  We're not going to pass the collection plate. Just humour us for 30 seconds.   If that's asking too much, bring a Walkman or a pair of ear plugs.  Go to the bathroom.  Visit the concession stand.  Call your lawyer!
Unfortunately, one or two will make that call.  One or two will tell thousands what they can and cannot do. I don't think a short prayer at a football game is going to shake the world's  foundations.
Christians are just sick and tired of turning the other cheek while our courts strip us of  all our rights.  Our parents and grandparents taught us to pray before eating, to pray before we go to sleep. Our Bible tells us to pray without ceasing.  Now a handful of people and their lawyers are telling us to cease praying.
God, help us.  And if that last sentence offends you, well, just sue me.
The silent majority has been silent too long.  It's time we tell that one or two who scream loud enough to be heard that the vast majority doesn't care what they want.  It is time that the majority rules!   It's time we tell them, "You don't have to pray; you don't have to say the Pledge of Allegiance; you don't have to believe in God or attend services that honour Him.  That is your right, and we will honour your right; but by golly, you are no longer going to take our rights away.  We are fighting back, and we WILL WIN!"
God bless us one and all...Especially those who denounce Him, God bless America and Canada , despite all our faults, We are still the greatest nations of all. God bless our service men who are fighting to protect our right to pray and worship God.
Let's make 2011 the year the silent majority is heard and we put God back as the foundation of our families and institutions. And our military forces come home from all the wars.
Keep looking up.
If you agree with this, please pass it on.
If not delete it.
Pray if you want to!
