Okay, I have heard all I want to hear about Michael Jackson for the past week and a half. The guy has been dead over a week and still has not been buried! Now his family is trying to cash in on his death by announcing they will be doing a Jackson Four tour, with video of Michael of course. I think I am going to puke over this, all over my HDTV. I literally have been avoiding watching the news this past week simply because all I was hearing about was Michael Jackson. I'm sorry, but wasn't the Cap-N-Tax Bill passed in the House of Representatives while this was going on? Hasn't Congress been discussing the health care bill that Obama wants to slam down our throats? Didn't North Korea just shoot a crap load of missiles in the past week, including 7 yesterday (4th of July)? Didn't Manuel Zaleya just throw Honduras Constitution in to the fire, and appoint himself President for another term? My point is that there were far more important issues to discuss than the death of Michael Jackson, so that being said...I am done talking about it!
On to the Minnesota Senator race that has finally been decided, just the way I predicted it would be decided in November of last year. Al Franken and the Democrats, and ACORN, stole the election, exactly as I said they would. Now please don't get me wrong, I don't think the seat in the Senate is as important as some would make it out to be. Remember that Norm Coleman bought in to the Bush Energy bill in 2007, (one of 6 Rinos to do so). And I am not all that convinced that he would not have fallen in line with the Cap-N-Tax and the Health Care Bill that are being bounced around. So really, except for his pride, Norm spent millions fighting what the left was never going to lose in the first place, and wound up with nothing. Many local people gave hours of service, volunteering with recounts and so-on, when there really was no way that their efforts would be vindicated in the end. Since I have weighed in on this extensively over the last 6 months, I need not go any further with this. Although I do believe that Coleman may throw his hat in the Gubernatorial race in 2010...should know about that, one way or another, soon!
Now I want to talk about the birthday of this Great Country a bit, and try to shed some light on what I believe is the possible slow death of her. We are watching the most intense level of hypocrisy and dishonesty to ever grace the oval office. The left continually degrades the integrity of this Country and her people, and without reproach. It just escapes me that the citizens in this Country can be duped so easily by a liar and a thief, and vote for him. I think it is unbelievable that so many people made a vote based on the promises that Obama made during his campaign for President. The left have always run on Conservative principles, since Reagan anyway, because they understand that this country is more than 60% Conservative/right. So they run on Conservative principles, and once elected, they do what Fascists do best...tax and spend and do just the opposite of what they ran on. By the way...Bush 43 did the same thing, just not as bad or as up front and in your face as Obama. We definitely need to have someone rise up within the Republican Party and they better do it soon! I do not believe that Sarah Palin is the person we are looking for, even though I respect and defend her to the end. I believe she would be a great President, and has the Countries best interest at heart. But I just think the left has brilliantly gone after her politically and in the media, since the election. And even the maggot Republicans that are part of the McCain campaign are going after her, for some odd reason. I see no way that attacking Sarah Palin benefits the McCain Campaign, except that I continually get campaign e-mails from McCain for President in 2012, and I think they are afraid she will run against the head maggot and win in a primary. Don't think McCain isn't behind what is going on with Sarah Palin and his staffers! McCain is a mean individual, make no mistake about it, as many have found out in Washington. What is so laughable is that without Sarah Palin on the ticket in 2008, Obama would have won by a landslide. So how McCain thinks that by destroying Palin is to his benefit, really raises questions in my mind as to his coherency!
Somehow I digressed when I was going to talk about this Country and what I believe is the last real birthday of a quasi free Country. It humbles me to think of all the men and women who have given their lives, over the past 230+ years, to keep the freedoms that our forefathers originally fought to give us. I tear up every time I watch the current Administration strip what freedoms we have left from my daughter and her eventual children's lives. All that aside I would like to wish the Country a happy birthday, and I will never take for granted what it has meant to it's citizens, and others around the world, for 230+ years.
"We hold these truths to be self evident; that all men are created equal, that they are endowed BY THEIR CREATOR with certain unalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers FROM THE CONSENT OF THE GOVERNED!"
God Bless those who would save this great Country!!
