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!!!

Barack makes fun of Special Olympics

Towards the end of his approximately 40-minute appearance, the president talked about how he's gotten better at bowling and has been practicing in the White House bowling alley.

He bowled a 129, the president said.

"That's very good, Mr. President," Leno said sarcastically.

"It's like the Special Olympics or something," the president said.

Reverse Rascism

Could you imagine if President Bush had dome something so racist???

"Sotomayor readily admits that she applies her feelings and personal politics when deciding cases. In a 2002 speech given at Berkeley, she said she believes it is appropriate for judges to consider their "experiences as women and people of color," which she believes should "affect our decisions." She went on to say in that same speech, "I would hope that a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experience would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male who hasn't lived that life."

Unless that white male looks at the case and says, "You murdered someone. You going to jail regardless of how you were raised... and no, there will be no sympathy just because you and I are both white." For her to assume that just because someone is white means they had a perfect upbringing and does not understand the judicial system is racist and just plain wrong. And if she is implying that a white male is going to throw people behind bars for something she wouldn't-I'd rather have him anyway. Less chance of me or someone I care about getting mugged!!!

Tea Party

I attended The Woodlands Tea Party on April 15. I went because I oppose the governments ridiculous greedy hand trying to take over every part of anything that it can. I oppose BO's outrageous "Recovery Act" that he passed. I went because I think taxing the people nearly half of what they make is absurd. I went because I support the constitution and our rights as American citizens to not be overly burdened by a selfish, tax-crazy government. Our Founding
Fathers had the original tea party and blew off people's heads because someone taxed their breakfast beverage (up to 3%) too much. Right now I pay 8.25% sales tax on almost everything I buy, on top of my other taxes!

So what was very upsetting about the Tax Day Tea Parties? A couple days before when BO was asked about what he thought about the Tea Parties, he acted like he hadn't heard anything about them. That is disturbing because the very people he is ignoring are the very people he is supposed to be representing. It's becoming more and more clear that his agenda is what he is after-not the people's.

After the Tea Parties BO said, "Those of you who are watching certain news channels, on which I'm not very popular, and you see folks waving tea bags around, let me just remind them that I am happy to have a serious conversation about how we are going to cut our health care costs down over the long term, how we're gonna stabilize Social Security. Let's not play games and pretend that the reason is because of the Recovery Act, because that's just a fraction of the overall problem that we've got.* We are going to have to tighten our belts, but we're going to have to do it in an intelligent way, and we gotta make sure that the people who are helped are working American families and we're not suddenly saying that the -- the way to do this is to eliminate programs that help ordinary people and give more tax cuts to the wealthy. We tried that formula for eight years. It did not work, and I don't intend to go back to it."

*Did he just admit that the Recovery Act is a problem? The Tea Parties weren't about Social Security, and no one was pretending they were about the Recovery Act, that IS what they were about!

So why is he ignoring us and what can/should we do? He is ignoring us because he has his own agenda to worry about. And what should we do about it? Get involved! Speak to neighbors, get your voice heard. Find out who is running for offices, contact them before the elections and let them know what you want done. Pay closer attention to who we vote in. We should write our senators and other representatives. Do something, do anything that is proactive. We can no longer afford to be apathetic towards what is happening, it is not going to affect just us but our children. Let's leave America a little better than we found it.

From a digest article by Mark Alexander:
"What the president has given to our enemies is a treasure chest of defensive weapons. Within the caves of the mountainous Pakistan/Afghanistan border, Islamofascist plotters must wonder how self-destructively corrupt their American adversaries have to be to allow such materials to land in their hands. The piece of information that may be of most value to terrorists is the government's assessment that waterboarding was 'the most traumatic of the enhanced interrogation techniquesâ?? and implicitly the most effective. ...Presumably the issue is academic since the Obama administration has officially prohibited waterboarding. There is no more valuable tool for subjects of interrogation than to know what they will be subjected to. How in good conscience could our president have given this gift to those trying to destroy us?"

I'm very irritated that classified secrets have been given to our enemies by the current administration. Why would you do that? Just thinking of my own job as a substitute, that is extremely harmful to our country. I would never walk into a class of 7th graders after the school's principal had announced that referrals would no longer be written. They might as well tell the kids to do whatever they want because there is no form of punishment, except the possibility of having to get sent to the hall. Which would be fine with them, the hall is air conditioned, quiet and close to their lockers and has no immediate supervision. Sometimes unpleasant tactics are required, especially when dealing with murderous criminals. I'm not saying that waterboarding should be used on 7th graders (although sometimes it would seem appropriate for their behavior), but it is appropriate when thousands of lives are hinged on what information can be obtained from those being interrogated.

BO actions have yet again shown America that he has no regard for our Country.
