What better way to scare you than to imagine 2 more years with these Goblins?
OMG-I just threw up in my mouth a little.
I like this one better…
The scariest of them all.
As you have undoubtedly heard, the US Navy killed the pirates that were holding Captain Richard Phillips. And as you may have heard, President Obama gave the go ahead for the Navy to use deadly force to stop the pirates if the Captain’s life was in danger…which it was.
Bravo President Obama! I know it is shocking some of you that I would praise our Leader on this blog–but when he gets it right, I intend to praise him for it. Besides, it’s the first thing he has done yet that I approve of and am absolutely convinced it was the right move. There is really no other way to deal with terrorists.
And the Navy—thank you for your continued protection of our liberties, freedoms and citizens. I know you don’t operate for the purpose of getting praise–but you deserve it nonetheless.
After all, this was not a laughing matter. But don’t tell Hillary Clinton that…
Obviously she has gone completely insane. I know that you are busy being the Secretary of State and all–but Sec. Clinton. The pirates we were dealing with were not this kind:
They were this kind of pirates:
Not so funny really.
Finally, I would like to give praise to all of the Tea Party Organizers around the Country. This Wednesday people will be gathering together in hundreds of cities to protest the Government’s crazy ideology of tyrannical taxing and overspending and growing government.
If you are in Houston–come downtown for the party at Jones Plaza (Party on the Plaza location) at 4:00. Come early, Stay Late and Be Loud as Mack Brown would say. I will be speaking around 5:30 at the party following John O’Neill-one of the swift boat veterans. (I think I’m slotted after him to fill time during “intermission”). I’m very excited about it and hope you can come.

Don’t Miss It!
In a year that has gone south in many ways for me (economics, market, election, Texas/Texas Tech game, turning 40, hairline) there are so many things to be thankful for. Thanksgiving should be a time to reflect on such things leading up to the “big one” on December 25–the day that matters most. So I thought I would let you know what I am thankful for- in a time where many people are not giving thanks. So, in no particular order:
I am thankful I live in the United States of America, which, as of today, is still the “land of the free” and the “home of the brave.” I am thankful that since 9/11/01 there have been no terrorist attacks on our shores. I am thankful that our airports, planes and buildings have remained safe in the last 7 years. I am thankful for our troops.
They continue to work tirelessly to protect our freedom and to protect the citizens of Iraq from attacks. They are true heroes and I am so thankful for them. I am thankful for our President. Yes, I know the polls and the pundits suggest that I shouldn’t be, but I am. President Bush has worked hard to keep my children safe and has worked in an environment filled with the most vile, nasty, and undeserved attacks from members of the Democrat Party, yet, he has never failed to get up each day and do his best for our Nation. I have not always agreed with him, but I am so very thankful for him and the job he has done. So–Thank you Mr. President–you do a job that most Americans cannot and would not (hmmm..maybe an illegal immigrant should run for office–but I digress)
No, I am not related to John Patterson. Unlike this guy, I am very thankful for my family. My wife, 3 kids, parents, in-laws, sister, nieces and nephews. Although all families are imperfect, I am thankful that mine is perfectly normal and that so far, they have not decided to leave me. I am thankful that my kids are healthy and do well in school and seem to be wary of morality and ethics. I am thankful that my wife works tirelessly to make sure they are taught right and wrong and are well taken care of. I am thankful that my parents and in-laws are still here and healthy and enjoy spending time with us.
A. Dark Chocolate
Duh! There is no greater sweetness.
B. Colt McCoy
Yes, the entire Texas Longhorn team is great this year, but without McCoy, the team would certainly be in a different position in the polls and the National Title Race. So I am thankful for him.
C. The Gas Conspiracy
You know—either the Bush conspiracy–that Bush drove up the prices from his Oval Office Supercomputer to help his buddies at Big Oil, OR–the Obama conspiracy–that the Middle East drove up the prices to make the Country believe in the Bush conspiracy so that voters would chose Obama only to have the prices fall just after the election. Well whichever fantasy you think is correct–the outcome is the same. I am thankful that my Camry now costs $26 to fill up instead of $60 and that my Suburban costs $48 instead of $100.
D. Hillary Clinton
I know, you are shocked that I would list her on my “thankful” list. But I am thankful that she has been taken out of the Senate. No longer will I have to listen to her pontificate about health care or some other socialist agenda item on C-Span. Now she will be going to the Middle East to “impress” the Saudi’s–ha that is really funny. For that I am thankful.
Finally, and primarily, I am thankful to God. Thankful to Him for all of the above and so much more. Thankful that His hand has not left my family or our Country. Thankful that He continues to bless my life and the lives of those in my family and circle of friends. Thankful that all of our needs continue to be provided. Thankful that regardless of elections, stock markets, gas prices or National Championships, He remains faithful and constant.
God Bless you, your family, your job, your finances and your health. And I wish you all–yes even you silly Democrats who get on here and call me names–even you guys—I wish you all a wonderful Thanksgiving.
Well, the wheels have finally come off. Bill Clinton, in an inteview with Larry King last night re-injected race into the politics of this Presidential election. When asked why he was postponing his campaigning for Obama he said this: “When [the Clinton Global Initiative] is over, and after the Jewish holidays, which follow close on it, I intend to go to Florida, to Ohio, to northeast Pennsylvania, and to Nevada at a minimum,” he said. “I may do events in Arkansas depending on what the Democratic Party does down there. And I’ve agreed to do some fundraising for them in California and New York.”
Larry King then asked him: “Are you kind of feeling Jewish that you’re waiting until after the Jewish holidays?”
“No. But I think it would be — if we’re trying to win in Florida, it may be that,” Clinton began, before discussing his real Florida target: “You know, they think that because of who I am and where my politic[al] base has traditionally been, they may want me to go sort of hustle up what Lawton Chiles used to call the ‘cracker vote’ there. But Senator Obama also has a big stake in doing well in the Jewish community in Florida, where Hillary did very well and where I did very well. And I just think respecting the holidays is a good thing to do,” he said.
That’s right–that just happened. I wish I had made this up–it’s great!
Now many (including Rush Limbaugh) have opined that the Clinton’s are really mad about the way in which Obama has treated them and are hoping he loses so she has a shot to run again in 2012. I would say that these comments solidify that theory.
But wait, maybe Bill didn’t mean “Cracker” like “Honky” or “Whitey.” Maybe he meant this kind of cracker:
Where can I get one of these?
No, I think he meant exactly what he said. Now so no one is mistaken–here are the only 2 logical dictionary definitions for “Cracker” that he could have meant:
|4.||(initial capital letter) Sometimes Disparaging and Offensive. a native or inhabitant of Georgia (used as a nickname).|
|5.||Slang: Disparaging and Offensive. a poor white person living in some rural parts of the southeastern U.S.|
So I guess Bill didn’t mean #4 unless he was mistaking Florida for Georgia. So…he was referring to poor white people who live in rural areas of Florida–and somehow waiting until after Jewish holidays will help him go down and get the vote of those people. Like maybe this person:
Um, Bill–I don’t think voting is first on her mind. And what I would pay to see you visit her house.
No, Bill meant to disparage white people as if Barack had approved of such a disparaging comment or as if to say, “Obama told me to go down at get the Jew vote and the Cracker vote.” He was hoping that such a comment would reflect badly on Barack–as part of his sabotage efforts.
You go Bill.
Yesterday Obama decided to lash out at Tennessee–just another state where people are clinging to their guns and religion–for an advertisement that shows Michelle Obama saying that “this is the first time I’ve been proud to be an American.” That ad is then contrasted with Tennesseeians talking about why they are and always have been proud to be an American.
Not a suprise really. I mean after all–she has made anti-American speeches but she isn’t running for President so we should not exercise our First Amendment rights and criticize the anti-American rhetoric she spews.
After all-democrats always lay off candidates’ families during an election. Remember, John Edwards in the VP debate being careful not to mention the fact that Cheny’s daughter was a lesbian.
Oh yeah, I forgot, he did mention that. Well what about Bill Clinton–I don’t want to defend him, but Barack has taken shots at him. Remember how he was attacked for calling Obama’s lack of experience a “roll of the dice” and for calling his opposition to the war a “fairy tale?” Cindy McCain has been attacked for not disclosing her tax returns and the DNC says it will make that an issue during the fall. Retired Gen. McPeak, an Obama co-chair, even compared Bill Clinton to Joe McCarthy.
Ah, but Obama is supposed to be the Messiah of Change. The Guru of Hope and the Lord of the Future. And we simply do not understand him. He, after all, is above us.
Maybe if we could realize our place below Obama, we would know that to take shots at his wife simply is not fair. Let’s take a lesson from the messiah’s wife –here are some quotes from Michelle, listen and listen good:
(By the way, “deign” means to condescend or to do something that one considers below their own dignity) Can you say “wow!”
2. But Mrs. Obama has no interest in an ongoing quest for the White House. “To me it is now or never.”
There’s an inconvenience factor there, and if we’re going to uproot our lives, then let’s hopefully make a real big dent in what it means to be president of the United States.”
(Honey-you are making a serious dent-in Patriotism, decency, and the fall of elitism)
3. “We have lost the understanding that in a democracy, we have a mutual obligation to one another — that we cannot measure the greatness of our society by the strongest and richest of us, but we have to measure our greatness by the least of these. That we have to compromise and sacrifice for one another in order to get things done. That is why I am here, because Barack Obama is the only person in this who understands that. That before we can work on the problems, we have to fix our souls. Our souls are broken in this nation.”
(Ahh, Saint Barack–what a man–he can fix my very soul–as long as I give him some money (like 25% of my capital gains))
4. “There is still a lot of hard work that we as a country need to do. They can’t look to any one individual, whether it’s Barack or it’s the next new hope that’s going to appear to be that savior. And I would just hate for people to sort of see this potential and think: Oh, now I can rest easy because Barack Obama is going to fix things. It doesn’t work that way.”
(Ummmm… WHA? I’m not sure what she is saying here since she contradicts herself–but as for the last 2 sentences, don’t worry Michelle, I’m not resting easy because I know he isn’t going to fix anything)
5. “Iowa will make the difference,” Mrs. Obama said. “If Barack doesn’t win Iowa, it is just a dream. If we win Iowa, then we can move to the world as it should be.”
(cue “Superman” theme song…
6. “For the first time in my adult life, I am proud of my country,” she told a Milwaukee crowd today, “because it feels like hope is making a comeback.”
Michelle–what is making a comeback is my lunch. Here is the reality–if you are going to go around the Country talking about your husband as if he was the inventor of post-it notes, then you are going to get critcized for your liberal, anti-American socialist comments–and even some of your regular ones. So buck up doll, this ride might get bumpy.
And besides, don’t we want to know a little something about our first lady before she gets in office–otherwise she might turn out to be a shrill demoness who attempts to pass socialist medicine legislation and claim her husband’s affairs are nothing more than a “vast right-wing conspiracy.” And then, Obama forbid, she might run for President.
ooohhh, perish the thought.
With the election so soon and affecting all Americans–I was sent an email that is intended to bring us all together. I felt I should share it will all of you.
Stay Safe and May God Bless America
There are less than eight months until the election, an election that will
decide the next President of the United States.
The person elected will be the president of all Americans, not just the
Democrats or the Republicans. To show our solidarity as Americans, let’s all
get together and show each other our support for the candidate of our
choice. It’s time that we all came together, Democrats and Republicans alike.
If you support the policies and character of John McCain, please drive with
your headlights on during the day. If you support Obama or Hillary,
please drive with your headlights off at night.
Thank you for your Support!
Have a Great Monday!
