    Dear Friend

    You must have seen on state television that yesterday Mitt Romney “cracked a joke” about President Obama’s origins. As progressives, we don’t find that many things funny anyway and we are certainly not laughing now!

    We deplore this descent into the politics of smear and innuendo by a cancer inducing, tax dodging, corporate felon Mormon. President Obama has given ample evidence, including an authentic forged birth certificate, that he is a full American. He is as American as the sunrise over the plains of the Serengeti, as American as the waves dancing on the shores of Krakatoa, east of Java, as American as the muezzin’s voice calling the Faithful to prayer. President Obama has made this crystal clear in his words, his policies and through an Administration that has been as open and available to public scrutiny as Barry Soetero’s Columbia transcripts (well, maybe not those…)

    President Denham is as American as anyone else; as American as you or me or Tony Rezko or Rod Blagojevich or Bill Ayres or Jeremiah Wright or any other ordinary American he no longer associates with and didn’t know that well anyway, honest. We believe that voters will reject the race baiting of the Romney-Ryan machine and affirm their hope for a new future, with affordable health care for every American; living, dead or Mexican, with voter registration for every American; living, dead or Mexican and a future tomorrow of fairness and equality of which we will be the bosses.

      I will send int every $3 bill I can get my hands on, knowing Dhimmies will be ecstatically redistributing them to fund voting in their 57-state campaign….

    I heard about three dollar bills. Staple currency in Chicago bath houses.

      Neil Armstrong will never die.

      Though his mortal shell has expired, he will live on because he has the mark of history on him as does Caesar, Columbus, Galileo, and so many others. He will be that one name that transcends the centuries and school kids will know the answers automatically.

      He remains alive and thanks to the technology of today, will be more than just a photograph or a few paragraphs in a history book. Kids will complain about having to memorize his name for the history test but will later become fascinated by his story and achievement and the associated effort put forth by a nation and its people.

      He will stand as a testimony, as many names of history do, to the dedication, hard work, discipline that brings about success.

      I am lucky enough to posses his autograph. It has been a treasured possession all my life. It resides in an undisclosed location and will never be sold. I hope it remains in my family for generations and when, in the distant future, one of my descendants is studying world history, their mom or dad will tell them, “Hey, hold on a minute. There’s something I want to show you”. And they’ll go get that autograph, which is accompanied by a few other astronauts’ as well and that mom or dad will explain how it came to be.

      Hopefully that child will then feel a powerful connection with his or her own family and how things tie together in the human world.

      Can you imagine, being a kid right now and your grandad shows you an autograph of Cristoforo Columbo? Well, some centuries from now, Armstrong’s autograph will probably have that kind of impact.

      At least, I hope so.

    • Anonymoose says:

      Amen; Armstrong symbolizes what is lacking today, the drive and willingness to achieve simply to show it’s possible. How many people throughout history have looked at the Moon and longed to fly there, to stand on it’s surface? A relative of mine had worked for one of the NASA contractors in that era and knew many of the astronauts–the feeling of pride and commitment those people had in their jobs and goals was present to me even as a 12 year old.

      I’ve heard a quote that if we had the same drive for Mars that we did for the Moon we could have been there by 1980. I can only that same drive and spirit returns, as it’s sorely needed today.

      Rusty, they don’t use history books in the schools anymore.

      Books are too expensive and too difficult to fact check and books aren’t green.

      And soon will be ban books week. Not sure if they are going to burn books or what to celebrate.

      No matter what class it’s media and not in the books. I’m telling ya we evolved from fish not monkey’s.

      The science teachers say the bible says God created the waters first and perhaps this is why the students will buy the new fish theory easier.

      And I am not happy about the liberals and blind-sided conservatives trying to get Christianity taught in the schools. They will pain Christianity as evil just as Obama’s comments bashed Christianity.

      You sure as heck didn’t hear Obama making fun of one single Koran scripture like he has joked about Christian Scriptures such as the Sermon on the Mount.

      Obama betrayed women, Christianity and the U.S.A. when he told the world the U.S.A. is a muslim nation in all his apologies.

    2012 and Obama’s latest interview tells his classic staged teleprompter uh uh uh uh. stare down to left, break for 1 second eye contact. Notice the chop cut off to room, and the uh uh uh uh. chop.

    Rehearsals, teleprompter, edits, but 4 years later, Obama still can’t perform his presidential duties without a teleprompter.

    AP 2012 interview with Obama

    Will Obama pull presidential rank and use teleprompter and pre-set questions in Romney debates?

  4. Chrispbass says:

    Is he reading??? I guess I shouldn’t be surprised except for the fact that he’s on a ‘news’ program being ‘interviewed’ by a ‘journalist’. You’d think the guy would ask the President why he’s reading instead of just talking off the cuff.

    I cannot stand to watch that man talk. Nothing, except maybe pro-death(choice) advocates, gets my blood boiling as fast as watching him do his thing. The f’n hypocrisy makes my head spin. Release your tax returns! LOL they have NOTHING to fight this battle with but BS. And the sheep just eat it up. God help this country.

    • canary says:

      And it sounds like this was the only part of the interview salvageable. The reporter probably got a headache like I do when he does that with his eyes.

    • canary says:

      On a good note if others get lost in the speech looking at his, maybe they won’t listen to the garbage he says pretending he didn’t even know Mitt Romney was a governor who got health care in his state and green initiatives. What the heck did Obama get for IL as Senator. Nothing. Traveling and begging for money is all he did as Senator.

      Chilling. I was googling Obama Teleprompter cartoons the one where he uses one in the President’s restroom. There are sooo many.

    Important Reminder on voting registration.

    Be sure you are up on any voting laws changed for identification in your state.

    Just because the law changed does not mean it was immediately implemented, but you can bet come November you may run into snags.

    I have been testing the snags by voting every dinky election there is. I ran into snag once years ago. It is very corrupt at the polls.
    Husband and wife teams. Not destroying ballots that you’ve made a mistake, etc.

    I have had showed identical voting cards and numbers keeping them all to show registered for decades only to have them pulled from my hands and stop their hands from taking the most recent. I have had the hateful Democrats insist on filling out registration forms when it’s simply an address change and try and fill in the form for me. Telling them repeatedly they wrote the incorrect form. Being told repeatedly to not write my one and only voting number I’ve never had. I have been denied a voting registration form for my son, though I learned his teacher gave him one and basically told him who to vote for. I have stood at polls while the
    Democratic poll workers chat with Democrat voters and complain, only to be grabbed and shoved out the door, ordered to leave when I’ve joined in.

    This will be the nastiest election in November and while a repeat of the Democrats correction will have only grown more meticulous
    and the Democrats have been active, the Republicans have been passive in their ignorant minds of not being able to imagine
    what is going on in the world.

    I am disgusted when one says they will vote for Obama rather than a Mormon. I am disgusted to hear those say they won’t vote this election as if they are making a statement. While I will always agree with someone who says there is corruption on both sides, I will only vote for the lesser of two evils.

    So, if a teacher can get stack of voter election forms than I should be able to get a few, without being mobbed by Democrats grabbing and pushing me. I should not have to get on my cell phone as so many times in the past.

    Do not let them take the registration from you and mail it for you. They won’t. Make sure you tell relatives that your child handing the voter registration back in class is stupid.

    Expect them to ask for more than is required by the law too. Expect it. Go prepared with all the identification you have and take a camera and phone when things go wrong. It’s a shame in my town/city that you look up issues writing on the internet to only be told you have to drive somewhere to get a copy…then have the issues rewritten to even the opposite of how your “yes” or “no” will be affected. After you get your state laws send them to as many people as you can before it’s too late. Get ready.

    Teacher fired after students draw controversial Obama cartoons


    So, my son’s govt teacher showed this clip and pictures and told the class the teacher deserved to be fired for showing the pictures around where others could see them. Do 2 wrongs make a right?

    And it’s was the parent’s fault.

    Still refusing to address all the current news of Democratic violence and hatred towards Romney and Republicans.

    We know it’s too make the voting age students feel sorry for Obama and believe this is how all Republicans feel. The SOB teacher should jump in the sea.

  7. canary says:

    Thanks RiverO. I just want to know if anyone got an e-mail from Devil Axelrod wanting money and telling of his financial woes and medical burdens from a child who nearly bankrupted them. And his being moved by tears etc.

    He most likely will never forget “gently” patting the back of Obama because of Obama’s endorsement for sex offenders of little children getting off easy; Obama’s making it easier for drug dealers in schools; and Obama’s push for partial-birth killings.

    Nothing in Obama care about substance abuse help for the students getting drugs easier, nothing about sexually abused children
    getting medical care, but sure is a push to get rid of sick baby’s before they become a burden and punishment to society.

      Is it best to delete or send back as spam? I don’t even know what spam actually is. And how did they get my first name when it’s not viewable. I won’t sign in new google chrome as it says you will be tracked so google can find sites not visited. yeah right. . I won’t do facebook as the govt has full reign.
