This is going to be a long blog with several different topics as evidenced by the title. First issue is a friend told me during a discussion about the fact that we have a socialist for a president that if that was true than Jesus was a socialist. OMG. Well here is my answer. In Matthew 26:8 when Jesus was getting his feet washed and perfumed. His disciples questioned him about the waste when the money could have been used to give to the poor. Jesus told them(paraphrasing here) to back off that the woman did a nice thing for him. He also said that the poor will always be with you but you will not always have me. Then let's visit with Paul.. those of you familiar with the bible will remember that Paul was Saul before he was blinded and convicted by God and went off to serve the people. In Thessalonians (3:6-15) Paul warned the Thessalonians to keep away from every brother who is idle. The rule was that if a man did not work he shall not eat. Now think about what is going on today. We have a group of jackasses and elephants in Washington who are hugely busy making sure that the idle get to continue being lazy and we get to pay them to be that way. In Thessalonians 3:14 note that Paul really hits them hard with the admonition that if anyone does not obey our instruction in this letter, take special note of him. Do not associate with him in order that he may feel ashamed. Take that Nancy, Harry, Barney, and Barack!!!! We are fast approaching a time when the government will be entrenched in our lives from home ownership to health care. It has got to stop. The people who can make it stop is ourselves because once the nanny state programs are in effect we will pay the devil to get rid of them. When did we become a nation of sheep? When did we stop caring about our freedom to choose what is best for our own selves and just handed the reins to the bozos in Washington.
Last week we had a semi wake up call when "a committee" in Washington determined that women didn't need mammographies and pap smears as often as we are getting them that they are scary and unnecessary. Okay for those that didn't hear this.... also included in one of those scary unnecessary tests was self breast exams. Sounds like the beginning of heath care rationing to me and to a lot of my medical friends. When my cancer was diagnosed I didn't find a lump. My small malignant tumor was found on my mammography and that test saved my life. Now as I was over 50 I would have been able to get a yearly mammography done but what of the many friends that I met during my therapy and treatment that were found with breast cancer, many under the age of 48. These women would be dead if we followed the new guidelines. The news channel had a family practice doctor arguing on behalf of the government and a specialist dealing only with women's health arguing on behalf of the current standards. Now I don't know about you, but trust a nurse on this one, go with the specialist. The family doctor they had on had to be picked for her looks because she is just stupid and it showed. Looks don't mean anything if you don't have research and brains behind them. The cancer society and complaints from thousands of women caused Harry Reid to stand up and down play the whole event assuring women in the United States that they would get what tests they would need. Yeah???? For how long Harry??
Did you all know that Hillary Clinton went to Russia? She was hoping to meet with Vladimir Putin but he took a side trip to China and Siberia instead. What a huge slap in our face. President Obama stopped all missile defense agreements with Poland and the Czech Republic to make the Russians happy in hopes that they would support sanctions against a nuclear Iran. Well Russia made a statement at the P5+ 1 meeting that sanctions would frighten the Iranians. I have a question??? Can something actually frighten those crazy sons of bitches? Well Obama is a putz and we are double putzes for putting this pussy in the White House. We are seen all over the world as weak and ineffectual. It scares me that France has bigger balls than we do. We sold out our friends in Poland and the Czech Republic for nothing... send in the clowns!!! No wait....... you don't have to send them in just turn on C-SPAN.
Oh, that thing that happened at Ft. Hood? Mr. President you are spineless. That attack was single act of terrorism. Why are you so afraid to admit that, and want call it by another more gentle non threatening name.
Oh and by the way Mr. President, you and Eric Holder???... good idea bringing those TERRORISTS from Gitmo to stand trial in NYC. Do you lay awake at night and think of these brilliant ideas on your own?? Your lack of compassion and understanding of human nature astound me. When history gets done with you(if you don't manage to fix the books!), you might even beat President Carter as the worst leader this country has ever known. I am looking forward to 2012.
