Just Keeping Track For Myself

"When white would embrace what is right..." is what was prayed for at the inauguration of our new president, Mr. Obamanation. Well, they're getting what they prayed for.
This white girl is embracing what is right.
Right wing, baby!!!

BO Broadcast to Cost Millions

"The primetime slot requested by President Obama for a news conference marking his 100th day in office is going to cost the broadcast networks millions of dollars in lost ads. According to the latest ad pricing data from Nielsen, the Wednesday slot between 8 p.m. and 9 p.m. generates some $21.5 million for the big four. Fox has opted out of airing the presser, saying it will run the event on its cable news networks, Fox News Channel and Fox Business News instead. ABC, CBS and NBC will air it commercial-free."

And not only that but he is screwing up the times of my favorite shows. Thank goodness for DVR.

Swine Flu

Mexico has had a recent outbreak of the swine flu. They are guessing somewhere around 60 people are dead in Mexico, and possibly 8 sick in the USA. Besides it being some mutated virus from our pork friends, the creepy part is that it attacks and kills healthy people around the ages of 25-45. Thank goodness I'm only 24.

I am hoping that this will not spread, but perhaps our genius president should shut the borders down just for a bit. Granted, we should hope that people would just be a little more responsible and choose to not visit those places until this is under control, but we all know that's probably giving everyone a little too much credit.

I live in a very southern city in Texas and I'm not too keen on the idea of getting the pig flu. Granted, most of it has been towards Mexico City but hey-that's too close for me. What would we do if there was an outbreak here? I doubt we have enough vaccines for the millions of people who live in South Texas. I'm not suggesting that we all freak out, I've never worried about bird flu or mad cow disease before, but hey you can't be too cautious. So if you see me sporting a nifty face mask and toting around a bucket of anti-bacterial hand sanitizer, think nothing of it.

Wary of Paying Taxes?

Collection calls for unpaid taxes are up to a record 280% this year. The story claims people are unable to pay taxes due to needing the money for current financial issues.

I say people stop paying federal taxes all together until the current administration stops screwing everything up.

Right Wing Extremism=Morals

The second page of the Obama DHS's 9-page report has a definition of "rightwing extremism" that is frankly terrifying:

"Rightwing extremism in the United States can be broadly
divided into those groups, movements, and adherents that are primarily
hate-oriented (based on hatred of particular religious, racial or ethnic
groups), and those that are mainly antigovernment, rejecting federal
authority in favor of state or local authority, or rejecting government
authority entirely. It may include groups and individuals that are dedicated to a single issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration."

Sad, But True

Of course not.

It doesn't count either when y'all Bush-Bash, hack into Sarah Palin's email and forget to pay your taxes. You're just supposed to make sure no one ELSE does it.

The New Dog

The first family debuted their dog this week. His name is Bo, after some singer they like.

Is this just another part of the narcism and "Bo" stands for Barack Obama?

America: NOT a Christian nation

Barack said in a foreign speech this last week that 'One of the greatest things about America is that we do not consider ourselves a Christian nation.'

In what world are we not a Christian nation? Research shows that a significant proportion of the United States is Christian, the minorities being every other non-Christian religion. Our Founding Fathers were Christian, and they based most everything that put the United States together on Christian principles. We ARE a Christian nation.

Barack hates America. Without even listening to anything he says, just looking at what he does. His actions speak for themselves, he is driving the greatest nation in the world into the ground. He is as Anti-American as they can come.

There are so many things I see on a daily basis that I want to blog about but it's getting harder to keep up with all the crap he is doing. I will just say right now I blame all the ignorant morons and their stupid "We Can/We Did" attitude who voted for him for the hell we are going through and will be going through. So congrats, idiots. YOU DID screw the rest of us over. The damage that he is doing is going to last longer than his office term. I hope people will learn from their stupidity and never vote anyone like this into office again.

Obama: Taking From The Rich To Steal From The Poor

President Obama's glib assertion that his reduction in tax deductions will not reduce donations is absurd. His pathetic defense at his press conference - that he would still give a $100 dollar check to charity even if he only got $11 less of tax deduction from it was both disingenuous and beside the point.
And his comment that his reduced deduction would only impact one or two percent of the nation misses the point that it is these folks who are doing almost half of the donating.
In 2006, the most recent year for which data is available, four million taxpayers had adjusted gross incomes of $200,000 or more. They comprised 3% of the tax returns, made 31% of the income, but donated 44% of all charitable contributions. Together, they provided charity with $81 billion in that year.
Obama's plan will cost them $10 billion in extra taxes on the income they allocated to charitable donations. How can the president be so glibly certain that they will not curtail their charitable contributions by a like amount or even more?
Imagine all the harm Obama's program will cause. Churches will be hit most hard. They account for the largest share of charitable donations, but universities, disease research, hospitals, soup kitchens, and cultural institutions will also be hard hit. So will international relief efforts that funnel aid abroad through churches or directly.
It is totally dishonest for Obama to pretend that his curtailment of these deductions won't hurt the poor. It will most directly impact them since most of the charities Obama is hurting focus on helping the impoverished.
This proposal is not about saving money. It is about controlling it. By, in effect, transferring at least $11 billion a year from private philanthropy to government spending, Obama empowers the public sector at the expense of the voluntary one.
President Obama's recommended reduction in the tax deduction for charitable giving reflects his fundamental belief that only the government can or should help the poor. He wants to keep the impoverished directly dependent on the government - and the Democratic Party - for their daily bread.
The voluntary sector has always been the backbone of compassion in the United States. Our charitable donations dwarf those of any other country. And our system of tax deductions for giving permits us to decide what charities are worthy of our generosity - a decision Obama will transfer to the politicians under his program.

Barack Bows to Saudi King

"The Naval Officer, as an Officer of the United States under Title X, USC, is prohibited from bowing to any head of state or member of a foreign royal family. The proper way to render respect in such a situation is to remain covered and render the hand salute in a sharp manner from the position of attention before moving on."
