SCREW the (Environ)Mental Cases – BUILD the PIPELINE

Monday, February 3rd, 2014

The only real obstruction to the Keystone XL pipeline now, much to the dismay of those on work release from (environ)mental asylums, is the Dictator, Obama.

Last Friday, not the 1st or the 2nd, not the 3rd or the 4th environmental impact study regarding that pipeline but, the 5th, and the one that came directly from Obama’s State (of Insanity) Department was released and, just like the previous 4, this one states that there is no environmental reason for NOT  building the 1,179 mile pipeline from Canada to Texas.

A couple of years ago, the greeny weenies complained that the pipeline would cross Nebraska’s Sandhills region and the aquifer but, the Cornhusker state’s Governor, Dave Heineman, ordered a study, found an alternative route avoiding both sensitive areas and, that route was accepted by Canada.

Obama  had pandered to the unions who stand to make bank off the building of the Keystone XL pipeline by delaying parts of Obamacare, just for them.

The problem is, he’s also been pandering to the (environ)mental patients by not signing off on the pipeline.

With Friday’s report, coming from his own administration, Obama now finds himself faced with yet another conundrum.

Does he benefit the United States or China?

Here are the choices…

Today, WE Choose and Obama Must Lose!!!

Tuesday, November 6th, 2012

This is IT!!!

November 6th, 2012.

Today…WE choose.

Obama vs Romney.  Socialism vs Capitalism.  Free stuff vs Freedom.  Arrogance vs Humility.  Corruption vs Competence.   Bigger government vs Smaller government.  Community Organizer vs Successful Businessman.  Appeasement vs Strength.  Lies vs Integrity.

If you really want to boil it down…

Obama wants fewer rich people.

Romney wants fewer poor people.

Our economy is closer to the abyss today that it was 4 years ago. Then, we were in a recession and today, we face the fiscal cliff and Obama shouts…”Forward.”

With Obamacare, Obama engineered the largest single tax increase in American history with 21 NEW taxes…12 of which hit directly against the middle class he claims to embrace. Now, he wants to raise taxes again.

4 years ago, gas prices were $1.84/gallon. Today, it’s $3.50/gallon.

When Obama took office, he inherited a AAA credit rating and today, we’ve been downgraded twice.

Since Obama took office, the average income has dropped by more than $4000.00 and more people have completely dropped out of the workforce than have become employed.

When Obama took office, there were 32 million Americans on food stamps and today, that number has risen to 47 million Americans.

Obama says we’re moving in the right direction. He says things are getting better. Obama says we’re making progress and we shouldn’t stop now. “Forward” he says. “Forward.”

Weekend Edition: I WILL STAND UP!!!!

Sunday, November 4th, 2012

Our Declaration of Independence, one of the greatest documents ever written, ends with these words:

“And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.”

Those words, which should ring in the ears of every American are followed by 56 signatures.

Each man who affixed his name on that Declaration believed in those words and each did indeed pledge to each other their Lives, their Fortunes and their sacred Honor.

Do you think THEY…”Stood Down?”

Emphatically…They did NOT!

Did the Patriots who fought and died for the idea behind that document…”Stand Down?”

NO THEY DID NOT.

In the ice and snow of Valley Forge…Did Washington…”Stand Down?”

No.

In the years after the war of revolution, when called upon to pen the Constitution, did James Madison “Stand Down?”

No. No he did not.

In the War of 1812, when things looked darkest and the British was sacking the White House…Who “Stood Down?”

No one. In fact, Dolley Madison took the portrait of Washington from the wall and saved it…for the NEW White House.

In the quest to put an end to slavery, did Lincoln “Stand Down?”

The burden of the war between the states was great but, no…NO HE DID NOT “stand Down.”

Our country is FULL of people who never “Stood Down” and it always has been. From those who, with an idea and firm resolve gave birth to this great nation, fought for it, died for it and settled it to those who built it, powered it, explored it and added to it.

Did those who came here from lands far away, who felt free upon seeing Lady Liberty and who learned the language and our culture to make a better life for themselves, their children and their children’s children “Stand Down?”

Certainly not.

His advisers told him not to say it, they told him not to use the line in his speech. It was too forceful they told him…It would be upsetting.

Doing the Liberal Hocus Pocus

Monday, March 12th, 2012

14 percent. That, according to a recent survey, is the number of people who strongly agree that Obama is handling the gas price issue well. 14 percent.

Who ARE those people? How much Kool Aid are THEY drinking and WHAT are they smoking?

65 percent disapprove; and of that 65 percent, 52 percent disapprove STRONGLY. Heck, 59 percent disapprove of Obama’s handling of the economy. 50 percent disapprove of Obama’s handling of the economy strongly.

In nearly every campaign appearance, Obama pats himself on the back for his own handling of the gas price situation but the spinning is starting to make people dizzy. That’s because in nearly every campaign appearance, Obama is taking both sides of the issue.

No surprise, it’s what liberals do but apparently, there ARE 14 percent of people who are completely unable to see through it.

Here’s how the liberal double spin works.

Obama and his liberal/socialist lemmings tell us that oil and gas are the energy sources of the past. They’re old hat, obsolete, passé, and as hip as an 8 track tape. We hear that over and over again.

Obama and his liberal/socialist lemmings also tell us that, “We can’t just drill our way out of the problem.” We hear THAT over and over too, don’t we?

Obama and his liberal/socialist lemmings have been telling us that even if we WERE to drill here drill now, it would take 10 to 15 years for any oil produced to have a positive effect on the economy. In fact, Obama aside, liberal/socialists have been using THAT line for more than 2 decades.
