OUR NEXT VICE PRESIDENT???
Lost in America
Well, early Saturday morning we learned that Congressman Paul Ryan,
Republican from Wisconsin, is to be Mitt Romney's pick for the next
Vice President of The United States.
What are we to think of this selection? He's not a graduate of
Columbia University. He's not a graduate of Harvard. He wasn't
Selected as the President of the Harvard Law Review. He didn't get a
Special free quota scholarship ride to any prestigious university and,
Instead, had to work his way through Miami University of Ohio. For
God's sake the man drove the Oscar Mayer Wiener Truck one summer and
Waited tables another!
One morning when Paul Ryan was sixteen years old he went in to wake
his father up and found him dead of a heart attack. He didn't write
Two books about that experience. Instead, he assumed the role of
adult at an early age, never having the luxury to pursue youthful drug
use and the art of socialist revolution.Instead, Paul Ryan and his mother took his grandmother, suffering from
Alzheimers, into the household and served as the primary care provider
for his grandma. His grandma wasn't the Vice President of the Bank of
Hawaii so she could offer nothing in return, except the element of
Once Paul Ryan got his BA in Economics from Miami University of Ohio
he was hired as a staff economist in Wisconsin Senator Kastin's
office. The job must have not paid well because young Ryan
moonlighted as a waiter and fitness trainer. No one offered him a
"token honor" position at the University of Chicago and a $200,000
dollar a year salary.When a still young Paul Ryan returned to Wisconsin to run for Congress
he didn't demonize his opponent and dig up dirt to shovel against him.
He waited until the standing Congressman vacated the office before
seeking the office. In Janesville, Wisconsin they don't have a big
political machine to promote you, to criminalize your opponent;
instead Paul Ryan had to go door to door and sit at kitchen tables and
listen to his future constituents.After getting elected to Congress Paul Ryan didn't triumphantly march
into Washington, buy himself a Georgetown townhouse and proceed over
to K Street to rub elbows with lobbyists. He bunked in his
Congressional office and used the house gym for showers and a fresh
change of clothes.
Paul Ryan then married and took his bride back to Janesville. He
lives on the same street he lived on as a kid and shares the
neighborhood with eight other members of the Ryan clan. He hunts with
the local Janesville hunt club and attends PTA meetings and other
For those who can't make those public functions, Paul Ryan bought an
old bread truck, converted it into a "mobile constituent office" and
drives around to meet with those who need his help and attention.
No, I don't know if we can vote for a guy like this. He doesn't have
a regal pedigree; he's Irish for God's sake! No one awarded him a
Nobel Peace Prize two months after getting elected. No one threw
flowers or got "chills down their leg" as a he took his seat in
What is most despicable about Paul Ryan is that he has had the nerve
to write the House Budget for three years in a row. He is brazen
and heartless in advocating in that budget for a $5 trillion
reduction in federal spending over the next ten years! The House
passed his budget three years in a row and three years in a row the
Democratically controlled Senate has let it die in the upper house,
without ever proposing a budget of their own. What is wrong with
this guy? If Congress were to cut $5 trillion dollars from the budget
where would the President get the money to give $500 million dollars
to a bankrupt Solyndra? Or $200 million dollars for bankrupt Energy
1? Or $11 billion dollars to illegal aliens filing INIT, non-resident
tax returns to claim child tax credits, even for their children living in Mexico?
I don't know. Paul Ryan seems heartless to me. He keeps wanting to
cut government waste, he keeps wanting to put a halt to those big GSA
conventions in Vegas and, worse, he keeps trying to make people look
at that $16.7 trillion dollar deficit! The guy's no fun at all!
Who wants a numbers cruncher? Who wants someone spoiling the party by
showing folks the bill? Nothing will spoil a party quicker than
sending the host the bill before the party's over.
Party hearty folks! At least until November.
Secret Service Buys Two New $1.1 Million Buses for a Three-Day Presidential Campaign Trip while Obama flies ahead of the buses for his campaign stops.
Obama FLIES into an airport somewhere in the Midwest, hops into one of two brand new $1.1 Million buses, paid for by you and me, for a ”bus” tour around the Midwest' and, after an hour or so, gets driven back to the airport for ANOTHER FLIGHT, lands at another airport, where another $1.1 Million brand new black Canadian bus is waiting for Obama - and then, repeats all that until Obama's Midwest "bus" tour is done!! [These buses are Canadian-built, by the way, because Obama is SO CONCERNED about American manufacturing, creating American jobs and supporting American productivity.]
And don't forget... those brand new shiny black Canadian buses AREN'T DRIVEN
to the location where they meet Obama. Oh, no…They are loaded up on one or more C-17s so they can be flown to the destination ahead of Obama who is flying in Air Force One.
AND!.. Believe it or not…this process is REPEATED FOR EVERY CAMPAIGN STOP.
During this “bus” tour, Obama will lecture the 'little people' on how they need to live within their means while hinting of possible future government cut-backs and a need to raise revenues (aka: taxes)!
Remember, too, Obama’s “sage advice” to a family man to 'GO BUY A HYBRID VAN' when the man said he couldn't afford to fill up his truck'!!!!!!
Obama's personal 'carbon footprint' must be as large as most cities by now.
Unbelievably, ALL of this is on the taxpayers’ dime!
But remember, this is NOT a campaign trip - It is a "Meet With the People" trip only!
Consequently, the Democrat National Committee does NOT have to pay a cent for all of this extravagant 'campaign' spending.
Please forward this on to all of your taxpaying and voting friends so that they, too, can see just why the federal government needs more of our taxes for revenue!
Have a great day and may God bless
WOW!!Oh my, look how far we have fallen. Will we ever have such a president again?
Ronald Reagan's church, Bel Air Presbyterian Church, put this together to commemorate his birthday.

The City of Dallas, Texas, has passed an ordinance stating that if a driver is pulled over by law enforcement and is not able to provide proof of insurance, the car is towed. To retrieve the car after being impounded, they must show proof of insurance to have the car released. This has made it easy for the City of Dallasto remove uninsured cars. Shortly after the "No Insurance" ordinance was passed, the Dallas impound lots began to fill up and were full after nine days. Over 80% of the impounded cars were driven by illegal's. Not only must they provide proof of insurance to have their car released, they have to pay for the cost of the tow, a $350 fine, and $20 for every day their car is kept in the lot. Accident rates have gone down 47%, and Dallas' solution gets uninsured drivers off the road without making them show proof of nationality.Wonder how the ACLU and the Justice Department will get around this one. Just brings tears to my eyes. GO DALLAS!

Neal Boortz is a Texan, a lawyer, a Texas Aggie (Texas A&M) graduate, and now a nationally syndicated talk show host from Atlanta . His commencement address to the graduates of a recent Texas A&M class is far different from what either the students or the faculty expected. Whether you agree or disagree, his views are certainly thought provoking.
A must read, longBTexas A&M Commencement AddressA little lengthy, but very much worth the time to read!
The students gave a standing ovation,
the faculty were deathly silent!
