(Oct. 8, 2012) — First, a must-read letter from a patriot friend:   I am saddened by the ignorance of history demonstrated by certain  news media contributors;  perhaps we cannot expect more from these ‘graduates’ of our uncompetitive union-staffed government schools.  I am saddened that class envy and other manifestations of thinly-veiled Marxism have become so deeply ingrained in our culture during the past several decades that they are now articles of faith for some of these so-called ‘journalists’.  They seem unaware that even the term “middle class” is a Marxist fabrication!  It is as if they take for granted the prosperity of the free market and the liberties we enjoy as a free people—that we are citizens rather than subjects.  It appears they have fallen prey to the mistaken  notion that the acquisition of wealth is a zero sum game.  It is so much easier for them to indulge their envy than to open their eyes and see economic freedom for what it is:  the tide that lifts all boats.  These envious folks seemingly believe that Mr. Romney achieved his success at their expense, when in reality, Mr. Romney has created more wealth and opportunity for this country than any politician or government agency ever has.  At this time in American  history, we do not need the pseudo-sympathy of some politico (like Obama) telling us “I feel your middle-class pain.”  Rather, America needs someone who sees the economic shoals with which our ship of state is about to collide,  and knows the way around them;  someone whose vision for our country is rooted in the documents upon which this country was founded, and feels no need to apologize for it.  Mr. Romney is not the perfect candidate; that person exists only in the fantasies of those who are prone to believe in meaningless slogans such as “hope and change”.  But he comes far closer to filling the much-needed prescription than does the current occupant of the White House.

This week’s commentary from an anonymous contributor with some modifications:  Looking back thru the past 4 years, many “Whens” pop up.  Read them all to better understand where we are going as a country.  Now may be our last chance to steer our nation’s course away from totalitarianism and the destruction of our liberties:

WHEN – he finally completed his transformation of America into a Socialist State,  sleeping people woke up— but it was too late.

All of the above points, and many more, affirm  the fact that Barrack Hussein Obama is determined to turn America into a Marxist-Socialist society,  destroying the meaning of our founding documents under which our nation has prospered for more than 200 years.

All of the items in the preceding list have been put into place.  All are documented. The last paragraph alone is not yet cast in stone. You and I will write that paragraph.
Will it read as above or will we change direction on November 6th?

Pray for Americans to recognize reality and the truth,  and vote to keep us FREE.

Our biggest enemy is not China, Russia, North Korea or Iran.

Our biggest enemy is within our borders—a  contingent of misguided or treasonous politicians in Washington , DC .  At this point,  the current government will not help us, so we need to do it ourselves.

  1. Don’t forget the impeached dog-horn-in-chief Billy Clinton started it all by getting illegal contribution from Indonesia and others, hmmm!!!

  2. Here is a typical Obama Administration routine used in many areas of America. When you discover you are riding a dead horse, the best strategy is to dismount. In business, or government they often try other strategies with dead horses, including the following:
    1)Buy a stronger whip.2)Change riders.3)Say,”This is the way we have always ridden dead horses.”4)Appoint a committee to study the horse.5)Arrange to visit other sites to see how they ride dead horses.6)Lower the standards so that dead horses can be included.7)Appoint a tiger team to revive the dead horse.8)Create a training session to improve employee’s riding skills.9)Study the state of dead horses in the environment.10)Change the autopsy report and declare “The horse is not dead.”11)Harness several dead horses together for increased speed.12)Declare that “No horse is too dead to ride.”13)Do a cost analysis to see if contractors can ride it more cheaply.14)Declare that the horse is “better,faster,and cheaper” dead.15)Form a quality circle to find uses for dead horses.16)Do a time management study to see if lighter riders would improve productivity.16)Call the dead horse a “joint venture” and let other ride it.17)Kill all the other horses, so this one will look the same.18)Declare that, since the horse is dead, we must now ride “smarter, not harder.”19)Name the horse “Paradigm Shift? and keep riding it.20)Declare that the horse is not, in fact, dead, but poised for growth.21)Promote the dead horse to a supervisory position.
    Does all this sound too crazy? Well, I lived through and around these types of morons most of my working life and there are “Bulls In China Closets” and they are running the White House until voted out of power.

  3. “WHEN”, is an interesting Word~Used in varied context it can bring emotions and curious behavior, questions with anticipated answers or debate, i.e.:
    “When are you going to take the GARBAGE out?”
    “When, are you going to Wake-Up and SMELL the Roses?”
    “When you forget to close the Barn-Door, the Horse ended up in the next County!”
    “When a person hesitates, he most likely is Lost!?”
    “When will you “Take ONE Step Forward to Preserve, Protect and Defend the Constitution of the United States of America??”
    When, you have LOST the “Freedoms, Liberties, and Pursuits of Happiness” guaranteed by the “Founders, WHEN they Created, “ONE Nation, Under God, with Liberty and Justice for all!”
    When, Socialism, Communism, Despotism, Despair and Serfdom occupy EVERY BREATHING MOMENT of your Miserable Existence, because you said:
    WHEN, this is Over, George will have done it~
    WHEN our Republic becomes “‘DA United SOCIALISTS STATES ov AmeriKa”
    OR~Might it just be HOW, WHY and “WHEN??”
    VELCOMEN, Comrade~”WHEN” You have but to Ask, and ‘Ye Shall Receive~
