Senator DeMint: I'm Glad to See The President Out Taking Shots At Me!

He makes an excellent speech on health care. I highly recommend watching it.

Good Intentions: 1982 PBS Documentary Featuring Walter Williams

Good intentions do not always produce good results. Let's get this straight, I like many other conservatives feel empathy for the poor, and the downtrodden. Yet the leftist liberal will scream that we are heartless mean people who care about nothing except big business. Do not believe this lie.

The old saying is incredibly true: "Give a man a fish, you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, you feed him for a lifetime."

Giving someone everything they need or want does nothing more than make them a dependent upon handouts. When you help them get back on their feet you help them find their self respect, and independence. How many of you have seen a sign that says some one will work for food? Have you ever tried offering them a short job to help them out? Or do you just continue to give them money, enforcing their dependence on handouts?

Why do I bring this up? Because Barack Obama is trying to pull at your heart strings trying to ram nationalized health care down our throats. Sounds great right? Health care for everyone? Well, just like all the other programs that Walter Williams debunks as actually harmful nationalized health care is being done with nothing less than the best of intentions. Beware when the government is forcing you to do things for your own good.

The road to hell is paved with good intentions.

Chris "Tingles" Matthews is a complete idiot and utter tool

He sits there during this interview waving this Certificate of Live Birth around like its a flag, with no clue as to what it is. It is not the long form birth certificate that details the hospital, the doctor, and the time of birth. The document that Tingles is waving around like a baboon is not the real deal. Read more Tingles, and then do us all a favor and shut the hell up.

Personally I don't know whether or not he is a citizen. I do know that the law requires the president to be one. I also know that Barack Obama has spent a ton of money keeping these lawsuits from finding out the truth. If he is a citizen, he should just show the long form birth certificate to us, and this issue will go away. If he isn't... Well, we aren't going to drop this any time soon.

Proud to be an American!

I received these via email. I am not sure how many of them are fictional. Even if they are fiction I still like them enough to post them here to share.

What does a Pin Drop Sound Like?

When in England, at a fairly large conference, Colin Powell was asked by the Archbishop of Canterbury if our plans for Iraq were just an example of 'empire building' by George Bush.

He answered by saying, 'Over the years, the United States has sent many of its fine young men and women into great peril to fight for freedom beyond our borders. The only amount of land we have ever asked for in return is enough to bury those that did not return...'

You could have heard a pin drop.


There was a conference in France where a number of international engineers were taking part, including French and American. During a break, one of the French engineers came back into the room saying 'Have you heard the latest dumb stunt Bush has done? He has sent an aircraft carrier to Indonesia to help the tsunami victims. What does he intend to do, bomb them?'

A Boeing engineer stood up and replied quietly: 'Our carriers have three hospitals on board that can treat several hundred people; they are nuclear powered and can supply emergency electrical power to shore facilities; they have three cafeterias with the capacity to feed 3,000 people three meals a day, they can produce several thousand gallons of fresh water from sea water each day, and they carry half a dozen helicopters for use in transporting victims and injured to and from their flight deck. We have eleven such ships; how many does France have?

You could have heard a pin drop.


A U.S. Navy Admiral was attending a naval conference that included Admirals from the U.S. , English, Canadian, Australian and French Navies. At a cocktail reception, he found himself standing with a large group of Officers that included personnel from most of those countries.

Everyone was chatting away in English as they sipped their drinks but a French admiral suddenly complained that, whereas Europeans learn many languages, Americans learn only English.' He then asked, 'Why is it that we always have to speak English in these conferences rather than speaking French?' Without hesitating, the American Admiral replied 'Maybe it's because the Brits, Canadians, Aussies and Americans arranged it so you wouldn't have to speak German.'

You could have heard a pin drop.


Robert Whiting, an elderly gentleman of 83, arrived in Paris by plane. At French Customs, he took a few minutes to locate his passport in his carry on. 'You have been to France before, monsieur?' the customs officer asked sarcastically. Mr. Whiting admitted that he had been to France previously.

Then you should know enough to have your passport ready. The American said, ''The last time I was here, I didn't have to show it. 'Impossible.. Americans always have to show your passports on arrival in France !' The American senior gave the Frenchman a long hard look. Then he quietly explained, ''Well, when I came ashore at Omaha Beach on D-Day in 1944 to help liberate this country, I couldn't find a single Frenchman to show a passport to.'

You could have heard a pin drop.
