President Obama was a no-show at Margaret Thatcher's funeral
despite being invited to attend and thus snubbing England's
invitation as a representative of the American people.
Joe Biden also refused, as did Hillary Clinton.
By the way, former Secretary of State George Schultz went to the funeral.
The British took note of the fact that the Obama administration
chose not to send a single senior member of the Cabinet.
In fact, no actively serving, elected Democrat attended Lady
The Obama Administration did, however, send a formal delegation
of 14 to the funeral of Socialist Dictator Venezuelan President
Hugo Chavez, who died last month.
Need any more RED flags???

Subject: Move over Jimmy Carter
America has had some great presidents, many mediocre ones and a few bad ones. But we’ve never had one like Barack Obama. He’s the first who thinks the job is beneath him. He’s the first who turns political give-and-take into a crisis by refusing to negotiate with Congress. He’s the first who thinks the way to more power is to inflict pain on ordinary people. The move to barricade the World War II memorial reveals the mentality of a tin-pot dictator. The limited government shutdown did not need to affect the memorial because it is open 24 hours, without gates and often without guards.But to turn public opinion in his favor, Obama’s goons trucked in barricades to keep out World War II vets and other visitors. By one estimate, the barricades and workers cost $100,000. The same punish-the-people attitude led to shutdowns of other parks and historic sites that get no federal funding. “We’ve been told to make life as difficult for people as we can. It’s disgusting,” a Park Service ranger told The Washington Times. The ranger cited the order to close the parking lot at George Washington’s home in Mount Vernon so visitors couldn’t use it. The cheap trick captured the contrast between a revered president and the current one. I’ve been saying for a while that there is no bottom to Obama. He’s not just ruthless. He’s without scruples and honor. However the shutdown ends, it will bring only a temporary respite from the crisis atmosphere in Washington. When it comes to his countrymen, Obama always chooses conflict over cooperation.Meanwhile, Jimmy Carter can rest easy. We have a new worst president.

Most of you know our friend Kathy went in for a surgical procedure for a Butt Lift using the Obama Care Medical Plan through her new state run insurance exchange.
She didn't have the most pleasant experience. She should have left well enough alone.
We wanted to show you how it turned out. We hope this makes you aware of the quality of care you will receive from the Affordable Healthcare Act (Obama Care)
Please, PLEASE, PLEASE . . Don't get a Butt Lift using the Obama Care Medical Plan. The “Obama care qualified Doctor” was a 3 year med student from another country making 12 bucks an hour.
Kathy regrets her decision, I think and we’ll all will regret Obama care. Scroll down…………..
Subject: Very good observation about a "simple sign"Very good observation about a "simple sign" being shown:Subject: Storming the Barricades in Washington
I have worked in the government on and off for 40 years. During that time I became quite familiar with requisitions, bidding, awarding contracts etc. It is a time consuming process with bean-counters and pencil-necked bureaucrats every step of the way. The simplest requesttakes months.. not days or hours.
Now follow me please.. let it sink in of what it takes...... In less than 8 hours of the shutdown, miraculously, professionally printed 3X4 foot signs appeared all over the country in the tens of thousandssaying this [park, facility, etc. with custom logos for EACH parks name on it] was closed due to government shutdown.. let THAT sink in...
There has not been a government shutdown in 17 years. These signs were designed, specifications were determined, signs were then requisitioned, bids were posted and vetted, government contracts were awarded...... in 8 HOURS!!
The materials were then ordered and the signs manufactured then distributed by U. S. Mails or freight companies.. the fastest they could possibly have had them would be over-night...... ALL of this in EIGHT HOURS!!!!
Something as simple as a sign PROVES This shutdown was orchestrated and planned well in advance at least 6-8 month ago.
Millions of tax dollars were appropriated and spent in this process.... in 8 hours
There is a paper trail a mile long leading directly to the White House.. Like that's a big surprise...
However, something as simple as a freshly painted sign being made AND SHOWN in just a few hours raises suspicion... it seems like a simple overlook to everyone else, but after 40 years of Government work I knew the TRUTH was right there driven into the ground, or posted at the Main gate. Let me remind you, 10's of THOUSANDS were made! With the Parks names on them!! Common sense must kick in at some point. At LEAST 6 to 8 months ago.
Subject: Who decides how the US spends its monies
Who Shut Down the Government? » Commentary -- GOPUSA
There is really nothing complicated about the facts. The Republican-controlled House of Representatives voted all the money required to keep all government activities going -- except for ObamaCare.
This is not a matter of opinion. You can check the Congressional Record.
As for the House of Representatives' right to grant or withhold money, that is not a matter of opinion either. You can check the Constitution of the United States. All spending bills must originate in the House of Representatives, which means that Congressmen there have a right to decide whether or not they want to spend money on a particular government activity.
Whether ObamaCare is good, bad or indifferent is a matter of opinion. But it is a matter of fact that members of the House of Representatives have a right to make spending decisions based on their opinion.
ObamaCare is indeed "the law of the land," as its supporters keep saying, and the Supreme Court has upheld its Constitutionality.
But the whole point of having a division of powers within the federal government is that each branch can decide independently what it wants to do or not do, regardless of what the other branches do, when exercising the powers specifically granted to that branch by the Constitution.
The hundreds of thousands of government workers who have been laid off are not idle because the House of Representatives did not vote enough money to pay their salaries or the other expenses of their agencies -- unless they are in an agency that would administer ObamaCare.
Since we cannot read minds, we cannot say who -- if anybody -- "wants to shut down the government." But we do know who had the option to keep the government running and chose not to. The money voted by the House of Representatives covered everything that the government does, except for ObamaCare.
The Senate chose not to vote to authorize that money to be spent, because it did not include money for ObamaCare. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid says that he wants a "clean" bill from the House of Representatives, and some in the media keep repeating the word "clean" like a mantra. But what is unclean about not giving Harry Reid everything he wants?
If Senator Reid and President Obama refuse to accept the money required to run the government, because it leaves out the money they want to run ObamaCare, that is their right. But that is also their responsibility.
You cannot blame other people for not giving you everything you want. And it is a fraud to blame them when you refuse to use the money they did vote, even when it is ample to pay for everything else in the government.
When Barack Obama keeps claiming that it is some new outrage for those who control the money to try to change government policy by granting or withholding money, that is simply a bald-faced lie. You can check the history of other examples of "legislation by appropriation" as it used to be called.
Whether legislation by appropriation is a good idea or a bad idea is a matter of opinion. But whether it is both legal and not unprecedented is a matter of fact.
Perhaps the biggest of the big lies is that the government will not be able to pay what it owes on the national debt, creating a danger of default. Tax money keeps coming into the Treasury during the shutdown, and it vastly exceeds the interest that has to be paid on the national debt.
Even if the debt ceiling is not lifted, that only means that government is not allowed to run up new debt. But that does not mean that it is unable to pay the interest on existing debt.
None of this is rocket science. But unless the Republicans get their side of the story out -- and articulation has never been their strong suit -- the lies will win. More important, the whole country will lose.

If you agree pass it on, I just did.Warren Buffet, in an interview with CNBC, offers one of the best quotes about the debt ceiling:"I could end the deficit in 5 minutes," he told CNBC. "You just pass a law that says that anytime there is a deficit of more than 3% of GDP, all sitting members of Congress are ineligible for re-election.The 26th amendment (granting the right to vote for 18 year-olds) took only 3 months & 8 days to be ratified! Why? Simple! The people demanded it. That was in 1971 - before computers, e-mail, cell phones, etc.Of the 27 amendments to the Constitution, seven (7) took one (1) year or less to become the law of the land - all because of public pressure.Warren Buffet is asking each addressee to forward this email to a minimum of twenty people on their address list; in turn ask each of those to do likewise.In three days, most people in The United States of America will have the message. This is one idea that really should be passed around.Congressional Reform Act of 20131. No Tenure / No Pension.A Congressman/woman collects a salary while in office and receives no pay when they're out of office.2. Congress (past, present & future) participates in Social Security.All funds in the Congressional retirement fund move to the Social Security system immediately. All future funds flow into the Social Security system, and Congress participates with the American people. It may not be used for any other purpose.3. Congress can purchase their own retirement plan, just as all Americans do.4. Congress will no longer vote themselves a pay raise. Congressional pay will rise by the lower of CPI or 3%.5. Congress loses their current health care system and participates in the same health care system as the American people.6. Congress must equally abide by all laws they impose on the American people.7. All contracts with past and present Congressmen/women are void effective 12/1/13. The American people did not make this contract with Congressmen/women.Congress made all these contracts for themselves. Serving in Congress is an honor, not a career. The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators, so ours should serve their term(s), then go home and back to work.If each person contacts a minimum of twenty people then it will only take three days for most people (in the U.S.) to receive the message.

I predict this video clip will go viral.. if it hasn't already done so.Those of you who are veterans should watch this...
Please do not delete this bit of US History of which many Americans have no knowledge. View it and share it and pray that we will never need such a response to government.
This film may explain why Obama's Department of Homeland Security put out a bulletin classifying "returning veterans," "gun rights advocates," and "people who carry copies of the Constitution." as a "Domestic Terror Threat." "An armed man is a citizen. A disarmed man is a subject.."
I was completely unaware of this event that took place in Athens , TN in 1946. I did not know an armed revolt on American soil by WWII veterans ever took place during our lifetime. A very sobering video to say the least.
Now the importance of the 2nd Amendment should be a little clearer to everyone.

Japan - some interesting facts
These practices set a high standard for young people . . . . .
hour with teachers. This led to the emergence of a Japanese generation
who is modest and keen on cleanliness.
* Any Japanese citizen who has a dog must carry special bags to pick
up dog droppings. Hygiene and their eagerness to address cleanliness
is part of Japanese ethics.
* A hygiene worker in Japan is called "health engineer" and can command
salary of USD 5000 to 8000 per month, and a cleaner is subjected to written
and oral tests!!
* Japan does not have any natural resources, and they are exposed to
hundreds of earthquakes a year, but this has not prevented its becoming
the second largest economy in the world.
* In just ten years Hiroshima returned to what it was economically vibrant
before the fall of the atomic bomb.
* Japan prevents the use of mobile phones in trains, restaurants and indoors.
* For first to sixth primary year Japanese students must learn ethics in
dealing with people.
* Even though one of the richest people in the world, the Japanese do
not have servants.The parents are responsible for the house and children.
* There is no examination from the first to the third primary level because
the goal of education is to instill concepts and character building.
* If you go to a buffet restaurant in Japan you will notice people only eat as
much as they need without any waste because food must not be wasted.
* The rate of delayed trains in Japan is about 7 seconds per year!!
The Japanese appreciate the value of time and are very punctual to minutes
* Children in schools brush their teeth (sterile) and clean their teeth after a
meal at school, teaching them to maintain their health from an early age.
* Japanese students take half an hour to finish their meals to ensure proper
digestion because these students are the future of Japan.
The Japanese focus on maintaining their own culture. Therefore . . . ..
* No political leader or a prime minister from an Islamic nation has visited Japan
- not the Ayatollah of Iran, the King of Saudi Arabia or even a Saudi Prince!!
* Japan is a country keeping Islam at bay by putting strict restrictions on Islam
and ALL Muslims.
1) Japan is the only nation that does not give citizenship to Muslims.
2) In Japan permanent residency is not given to Muslims.
3) There is a strong ban on the propagation of Islam in Japan.
4) In the University of Japan, Arabic or any Islamic language is not taught.
5) One cannot import a 'Koran' published in the Arabic language.
6) According to data published by the Japanese government, it has given
temporary residency to only 2 lakhs, Muslims, who must follow the
Japanese Law of the Land. These Muslims should speak Japanese and
carry their religious rituals in their homes.
7) Japan is the only country in the world that has a negligible number of
embassies in Islamic countries.
8) Muslims residing in Japan are the employees of foreign companies.
9) Even today, visas are not granted to Muslim doctors, engineers or
managers sent by foreign companies.
10) In the majority of companies it is stated in their regulations that no
Muslims should apply for a job.
11) The Japanese government is of the opinion that Muslims are fundamentalist,
and even in the era of globalization they are not willing to change their
12) Muslims cannot even rent a house in Japan.
13) If anyone comes to know that his neighbor is a Muslim then the whole
neighborhood stays alert.
14) No one can start an Islamic cell or Arabic 'Madrasa' in Japan.
15) There is no Sharia law in Japan.
16) If a Japanese woman marries a Muslim, she is considered an outcast forever.
17) According to Mr. Kumiko Yagi, Professor of Arab/Islamic Studies at Tokyo
University of Foreign Studies, " There is a mind frame in Japan that Islam is a
very narrow minded religion and one should stay away from it."
The Japanese might have lost the war, but they are in charge of their own country.
There are no bombs going off in crowded business centers, "Honor Killings", nor
killing of innocent children or anyone else.
Something to think about......
