Right now, in the living room, my husband is recording the original Ten Commandments. It was the first movie that I ever saw on the big screen. I was almost five, and I remember being about three rows from the front in what seemed to me, to be the biggest theater in the world. The fact was, back then, Naples, FL, had less than 8,000 people and it was the only movie theater in town.
It was probably pretty small.
My older brother went with me of course, and I have no idea where my parents were….they figured my older brother could watch me. His way of watching was to sit me in the front row, and then, he would take off to find a seat next to the nearest pretty girl he could find. They had already seen it, and so, being short of money, they just bought tickets for their children. They sat outside in the parking lot waiting for us. Or so my mother said.
I won’t tell you the impact that movie made upon my heart— my soul. Upon seeing Charles Heston part the Red Sea, I was more than overwhelmed. I believed in God, and Moses…and that seed is still there. The power of that movie affected the rest of my life.
As for the church…that’s another blog.
I suppose, because I saw the Ten Commandments FIRST, it really is the reason why I have always judged churches with skeptical reverence. When I was told in Sunday school that you have to go though Jesus to even GET to God, I thought…well heck, that’s not what Moses said.
Laugh if you want, but in my mind, it was that simple. Maybe I’m a Jew, but don’t know it. (ha)
Because I happen to believe that whatever religion is pushed into the young malleable mind will stay there forever—I could have told George W. Bush that trying to change the Muslims into a democracy is a crazy idea. Christianity is based upon the individual seeking his own course. Islam, is obey, or die. I don’t know what they tell their five year old— but its enough to make them believe that if they kill infidels on earth, it’s a good thing. Not exactly the “Turn the other cheek” message.
Muhammad, came AFTER Jesus. From what I can tell about what I’ve read about Muhammad…he figured out that if Jesus could claim that Gabriel had come down and told him he was special, why not try it? He stole the line of “Gabriel the angel has come to me..and I am god’s true son.” —but unlike Jesus, he was just another neighborhood crime lord.
Okay, I wasn’t there, and it’s more complicated that and—- I’m off subject
Yesterday, on Easter, my husband and I watched Ben-Hur, with Charles Heston. You can watch all the movies made since Ben-Hur, that describe Jesus’ life, but none of them even come close. There are many reasons for this…for instance in Ben- Hur, they never ever show Jesus’ face.
You don’t even see Jesus talk. The movie is about faith. And tyranny. And the cruelty of man. You must paint your own faith into that story. It’s brilliant, and respectful, and really the best way to present Jesus. But, that’s just my opinion. The power of the human imagination is always more powerful than someone’s artistic idea.
And I remember thinking how lovingly the old people in the movie were revered, and treasured. Wouldn’t it be nice if in our culture of today, old people were treated with more kindness?
Watching Ben-Hur today, reminded me how Charles Heston really has played such a big part in my own life, my own morality. First the Ten Commandments. And then years later, when I was first starting to awake to the madness of Bill Clinton’s corruptible presidency, I heard Charles Heston on the radio, one day while I was driving to St. .Charles, MO. IT was …a “I’ve been hit by lighting” moment.
All the pain that I have been feeling about my country changing, disappearing, right before my eyes, came out in his words. I could not stop crying. The truth of his words cut so deeply into my heart, it wasn’t too much later that I started blogging. OMG…here’s a man who just blurted out the truth! The truth we are all told is not happening. I was so moved, I wrote him a letter.
(And yes, he answered back.)
The truth is, Charles Heston was more than a magnificent actor, he was a hero of a man. Every movie he picked to do, represented truths he wanted to convey.
( Unlike the movie stars of today making big money at films where they kill with guns every other scene and play heroes…and then come out and say…”Nobody should own or SHOOT a gun. Hey, it’s just a movie.”
Charles Heston back when Clinton was President, was one of the few to speak out against the madness of the left;
In a 1997 speech called Fighting the Culture War in America, Heston rhetorically deplored a culture war he said was being conducted by a generation of media people, educators, entertainers, and politicians against:
...the God fearing, law-abiding, Caucasian, middle-class Protestant – or even worse, evangelical Christian, Midwestern or Southern – or even worse, rural, apparently straight – or even worse, admitted heterosexuals, gun-owning – or even worse, NRA-card-carrying, average working stiff – or even worse, male working stiff – because, not only don’t you count, you are a down-right obstacle to social progress. Your voice deserves a lower decibel level, your opinion is less enlightened, your media access is insignificant; and frankly, mister, you need to wake up, wise up, and learn a little something from your new America; and until you do, would you mind shutting up?
He went on:
The Constitution was handed down to guide us by a bunch of wise old dead white guys who invented our country! Now some flinch when I say that. Why! It’s true-they were white guys! So were most of the guys that died in Lincoln‘s name opposing slavery in the 1860s. So why should I be ashamed of white guys? Why is “Hispanic Pride” or “Black Pride” a good thing, while “White Pride” conjures shaven heads and white hoods? Why was the Million Man March on Washington celebrated by many as progress, while the Promise Keepers March on Washington was greeted with suspicion and ridicule? I’ll tell you why: Cultural warfare!
And his speech on the radio that day, made me feel, that I was not alone. I cried when I heard him speak the truth on the radio.
He never did it again.
If only he had……..
What we are learning then, and now, is that Jesus came at a time in history, when the poor men were beaten down by an all too powerful Roman empire. Jesus gave the world sanctuary. He gave them hope. Whether you think he is the son of God or not, he gave the world…a sensible way to deal with tyranny. A way to react to the madness–a way back to God.
It was a message I needed to hear again today, in this world where we have a president who remains silent at the slaughter of Christians and Jews happening again, all over the world.
And if I ever have a grandchild, the very first movie I am sitting with them to see…
Can you guess?
I SORT of watched the Oscars last night. Whenever I got insulted, I would change the channel, which happened a lot.
In the past years I have written about how to pick the winners at the Oscars: Just pick the movie that expresses the liberal causes, and that‘s your winner. It’s easy. Was the movie about the sufferings of :gay? women? Muslims? blacks?
OSCAR! Add a few devastating illness and you have some variety.
It works every time. The good news is these Hollywood actors have become the loudest mouthpieces for the democratic party, and anybody who doesn’t tow the line of liberal feel good causes are…trashed. And most of these movie stars have big mouths.
So, guess what? America stopped going to their movies as payback. You want to make fun of my conservatives values? Then I don’t have to go see your movies. It must bother them because Sean Penn made a comment about how “Movies don’t even have to make money, it’s all about the ‘art’.
And last year the movie industry lost BIG time. The movie that made half the profits, over $350 million and counting, was a movie about a true American Hero…a soldier.
Damn. What can you do when the nation STILL insists on those old fashion values? What every good marketing agent will do: you have to throw a few bones to the paying crowd.
They gave “Sniper” a nomination so those idiotic morons in the fly over states would tune into the Oscars and learn something. Maybe even go SEE those other movies and learn how wicked they are. Like how homosexuals want to kill themselves when teenagers because they feel “different.” I think last year more soldiers killed themselves than homosexuals…but they don’t care. They have gays in underwear.
“Sniper” won nothing.
And then there was Oprah. The TITANIC Oprah, who made Chris Pine cry with the emotion of how black people should be released from jail…and how racism is rampart in our society.
When “glory” came on, being a thinking human being, with still the right to choose, we flipped the channel to “The Walking Dead” only to witness…two men kissing and loving each other, and my husband and I turned and looked at each other and said, “Oh no…NOT the Talking Dead too.”
STOP IT!! This was a plan to get us to turn BACK to the OSCARS! Ahhhhhhh…….
Lady Gaga, go figure, did a fine performance of songs from the “Sound of Music” The host was rather, boring. And so, I can see why he had to come out in his underwear.
“To every woman who gave birth, to every taxpayer and citizen of this nation,” said Arquette. “We have fought for everybody else’s equal rights. It’s our time to have wage equality once for all. And equal rights for women in the United States of America.”
Somebody tell Hillary. Evidently, she has always paid women 72 cents to the men’s dollar.
During those years, the median annual salary for a woman working in Clinton’s office was $15,708.38 less than the median salary for a man, according to the analysis of data compiled from official Senate expenditure reports.
There wasn’t ONE movie besides Sniper that I would pay money to see. And at the end, the director of the year, a Mexican, made a plea for us to welcome with open arms all his Mexicans neighbors who deserve to be Americans:
Director Inarritu said he prays his native country finds “a government we deserve” and that immigrants to the U.S. “can be treated with the same dignity and the respect of the ones who came before and (built) this incredible immigrant nation.”
Wait. Now MEXICANS built this nations? Move over Muslims.
Don’t they know…that it was the WOMEN who built this nation! Every time I look at the Empire State Building I remind myself that it was built by… very muscular women, who claimed to be men.
Back then, nobody would have hired them if they had said they were female.
Clearly, they have many more movies to make. And I wonder, when they make this movie about how Mexican, Muslims and women built America, they will mention the fact that they were all actually gay?
I think I’m on to something here. Oscar worthy.
Just in case you missed this, Obama is saying that for women, going out your front door is more dangerous than driving your car. If you have not been raped or beaten…YOU WILL be in your lifetime.
The war on men…must go forth! Onward! Women! BEWARE of those evil men, standing beside you!
“Rape! Murder! It’s just a shot away…it’s just a shot away!”….yeah, yeah…yeah. Good thing Mick Jagger warned us.
Let me get this straight: They want women in the workforce, but they want to scare them SO much, they only hang out in groups, stay home and go nowhere— carry guns…wait.
They don’t want them to carry guns right? So, in order to stop all this pillage, Obama just wants men to stop raping and beating women. Isn’t that nice of him?
They just want those dirty, evil, men to stop raping and beating, and saying things like, “I love you.”
“I love you” to Obama, is just one step away from a rape.
We had the “war on poverty, ” the “war on blacks” the “war on drugs” and now, for your entertainment and Hillary’s only hope for a viable voting block:
We are now starting
THE WAR ON WOMEN!
If I were you guys, I wouldn’t put up with this. Time to beat up on some politicians….with your choicest words. And by the way, go ahead and cuss like a sailor.
Obama only understands the Chicago vernacular.
Jeb Bush and Mitt Romney are meeting today— who’s to bet both these guys are trying to figure out a plan how to defeat men like Bobby Jindal from running for President?
Bobby is articulate: He is doing a good job running Louisiana— he’s all American. I would defiantly go to the polls to vote for him. If the names on the ticket were Bush or Romney VS Hillary…I’m not sure if I would. It depends on if I felt like doing my nails instead.
Bobby states what all republican candidates should be saying now. Any immigrant that comes into a Western country should assimilate. He stated that all over Europe there were zones where Muslims kept to themselves and the people of the country stayed away, including the police.
By saying this, Bobby upset the very ‘sensitive’ French mayor of Paris (a woman) when he talked about “No go Zones.”
No wonder Obama keeps throwing dinner parties for the French.
So, Congratulations Mr. Jindal! You win the Nobody’s Fool Award for the week. Now, run for President, please.
Something tells me in THIS election, it may not be the biggest money spender that wins.
WHITE LIVES MATTER!
Wait. I can’t say that. Okay…
IT’S NOT EASY BEING GREEN!
THIS BUD’S FOR YOU!
I CAN’T BREATHE!
WHERE’S THE BEEF?
Why don’t all those rioters just put on their NIKE’s and shout, “JUST DO IT!” while they run down Malibu Beach?
Nothing like a good slogan to get you going. And the recent “black lives matter” slogan insinuates to the world that white people are evil. Especially white Americans.
COMRADES! UNIT AND BREATHE!
Everybody is forgetting that other people besides blacks matter too. The MLK marches are going to be plastered all over our TV’s today, Being that MLK was a great man, he would think white lives matter too..wouldn’t he?
Would MLK be upset that they made another movie about whites killing blacks, when in reality, TODAY, in 2015, it’s the blacks killing blacks, (not to mention all the black babies being aborted) that is putting all of Martin Luther’s King’s hard work, backwards?
If not, then he is no man to worship.
And despite what you will be hearing tomorrow, not ALL the blacks are on Obama’s race card boat.
One of the black Caucus members that went to church in Ferguson today said that Ferguson was a “turning point in race relations.”
We have gone backwards thanks to our first black President. Not only is he trying to reincarnate the 1960s, and the race riots, the black race unemployment rate is twice that of the whites under Obama. There actually was a middle class back in the old days before civil rights.
The democratic party has done a bang-up job keeping the blacks on the liberal slave choo-choo train. And like the slave owners of old, they have kept many of them ignorant, uneducated, and poor, on purpose.
The one thing that Obama did accomplished, is he got blacks to actually get off their butts and go vote. Yes, if the blacks had not gone out and voted for Obama in the last two Presidential elections, they might actually have jobs now.
You must realized by now, that blacks…CAN vote, don’t you? In mass numbers. They’ve proved it by electing Obama… So…
Why all of a sudden do we have to make a movie about how blacks can’t vote?
I haven’t seen Selma, but I’m told it’s mostly about whites killing blacks and trying to keep them from voting, or whatever happened I’m not sure. It was not our best moment in time. And just in time to promote that the blacks should keep marching and blocking highways in 2015, ..is a movie, timed perfectly , and let me say that again…PERFECTLY….to be released JUST before MLK Day— called Selma, put out by Obama’s tried and true helper, the second richest black woman in the world, Oprah Winfrey.
Timing is everything.
The very next night, the first black President will give his “state of the union” address where he will no doubt talk about how our race relations are (the whites fault) and then after smearing on the guilt, with a few well-timed camera shots of crying black mothers he will ask for all C students to get free college tuition. He will ACT like that applies to white kids too, but we all know that’s not happening.
And no doubt, some mothers of ‘murdered’ black children by racists cops will be sitting next to Michelle and crying big tears, to remind the rest of America, how prejudice we all still are.
Hand over the money.
Obama will have another message for the blacks “They are being kept from voting”, because they shouldn’t have to show an ID. The real reason for no ID voting is so illegal’s can vote, but Obama doesn’t want the blacks to know that. He’s fighting for them.
Obama is about to make the poor blacks compete with the millions of illegal’s who will now take over America. Forget your minimum raise.
The robots are coming.
Obama’s economy is SO bad, Ferguson was a godsend for him: And who is behind this Obama black revolution?
For one, Karl Marx: “From the drastic dissolution of society it was the complete loss of Man and the dissolution of the hitherto existing world order. “
In other words you must destroy, and THEN build. And who’s good at that?
George Soros—-Hillary’s and Obama good friend:
Ferguson, was a product of Soros:
In an apparent effort to “keep the media’s attention on the city and to widen the scope of the incident to focus on interrelated causes — not just the overpolicing and racial discrimination narratives that were highlighted by the news media in August,” liberal billionaire George Soros donated $33million to social justice organizations which helped turn events in Ferguson from a local protest into a national flashpoint. Organizers from professional groups in Washington, D.C., and New York were bussed into the Missouri town to co-ordinate messaging and lobby to news media to cover events using the billionaire’s funding.
Meanwhile papers from think tanks were disseminated to bring in extra coverage of the civil unrest, also linked to the police killings of Eric Garner in Staten Island and Tamir Rice, 12, in Cleveland, Ohio.
Soros also gave money to the Drug Policy Alliance, which worked on the perpetuation of the ‘black lives matter’ buzz phrase, which has been incorporated into speeches by political figures including Hillary Clinton.
And that’s what you have in a nutshell: The black society has been destroyed—- “a drastic dissolution of society.” Fatherless children born into poverty, given a terrible education, and kept on the hopelessness of welfare and drugs.
And now the time is ripe.
All they need a good slogan.
Today…”BLACK LIVES MATTER!”
Tomorrow…not so much.
Somebody–tell the President. Obviously he still thinks it’s only his black life that matters, not theirs.
Nobody Gets Email:
Here we have the timeless sayings of the last great generation, whose common sense has long since left the planet.

This was only sent to the over 50 crowd because the younger ones would not believe we truly were told these “EXACT” words by our parents
I heard this news on Rush Limbaugh’s program today, and had to laugh. Liam Neeson has joined Sylvester Stallone in complaining that America citizens should not have guns—WHILE at the same time, making MILLIONS off those same people by promoting violence with guns.
“There’s too many [expletive] guns out there,” Neeson told Gulf News at a Taken 3 presser in Dubai. “Especially in America. I think the population is like, 320 million? There’s over 300 million guns. Privately owned, in America. I think it’s a [expletive] disgrace. Every week now we’re picking up a newspaper and seeing, ‘Yet another few kids have been killed in schools.’”
You tell me, how they see no hypocrisy in themselves and what they are saying.
“A character like Bryan Mills going out with guns and taking revenge: it’s fantasy. It’s in the movies, you know? I think it can give people a great release from stresses in life and all the rest of it, you know what I mean? It doesn’t mean they’re all going to go out and go, ‘Yeah, let’s get a gun!’’”
So, tell us Mr. Neeson…do YOU own a gun? Sorry. You can’t claim “It’s a fantasy” ….you are endorsing the right for a man to protect his family by agreeing to make the film. We understand that YOU live in a fantasy world where you hang out with the superrich and can hire body guards, and live in castles with heavily guarded gates, but hey, some of us live near Ferguson. We NEED our guns. What DON’T you get about this fact?
You DO have a choice Liam. You don’t have to make those films. Why do you think Americans LIKE those films? Is it because we believe in the right to protect ourselves? Or is it because we just think you’re so handsome?
I don’t care how many more RAMBOS he makes, or even if Liam makes TAKEN 22, I will never spend another dime on seeing any of their work.
Nobody Thinks they both have enough money and who knows? Maybe ‘somebody’ is paying them big bucks to say this stuff.
Or…are they that stupid?
You tell me.
So, do YOU want to give your money to support men who put you down, and think you are stupid? You know what this Nobody really thinks about these two?
In a real fight in the real world, they’d be the first ones out the back door. They are …..actually cowards.
My dog has more cahonies, and she’s a female.
IF Hillary Clinton And Barack Obama Truly ARE the Most Admired People in the World, We Really Need to Get off the Planet
It’s a funny end to the year—Here in America we are floating in a news sea of nebulous stories filled with marginal meanings of who, what, when and where are we? More importantly, what to do about it?
Do you know where your President is tonight?
Tonight they are giving a big dinner at the White House for the French, (At least that’s what they said on Fox News) and I thought Obama and his family were in Hawaii on vacation…so, is he flying back to D.C. and then taking off again and going BACK out to Hawaii to play more golf? Is that NOT a big waste of money? Or like before, is he leaving Michelle in Hawaii, costing us more money?
President Obama will return to Washington from Hawaii Thursday while First Lady Michelle Obama and her daughters plan to continue their vacation, adding at least $100,000 and probably more than $200,000 to taxpayer costs for the excursion.
NOTICE…nothing is said about him going back.
And more about Obama’s stay in Hawaii…
A surefire sign that Obama’s in town is the gunboats that appear in Kawainui Canal. For the duration of the presidential vacation, the U.S. Coast Guard sets up a security zone in the waters around the Paradise Point Estates peninsula, the exclusive Kailua neighborhood where the president has stayed for the past five years. This keep-out area includes about a half mile of the canal, a waterway popular among paddlers and a small slice of Kailua Bay, including part of a surfing area once known as Castle’s but now called Obama’s. (Where can you not surf when Obama’s here? Obama’s.) Violators face a $40,000 fine, up to 10 years in prison and, according to one Kailua resident who lives along the canal and hasn’t quite come to terms with the firepower that accompanies the leader of the free world, “possible death.”
Who wouldn’t want to stay in paradise when you literally can have most of the island to yourself? You know, Bernie Sanders is always complaining about the Koch Brothers, but what about Obama? WHY do the socialists never complain about the wasted money Obama has spent on himself. WHY?
Even I have to admit, that our other rulers, the Bush family ( We seem to now have rotating Kings)—- George W. stayed at the White House more often than not, so that he wasn’t dragging hundreds of men and women all over the planet, just to serve him.
Nobody Knows WHY in the world Congress has given Guantanamo Bay money to build a new school for the children of the soldiers there, and WHY a school that will only hold 275 children is costing $65 million dollars. What are they going to do, eat out of gold plates?
GUANTANAMO NAVY BASE, Cuba. — The base with the most expensive prison on earth is getting one of the world’s priciest schools — a $65 million building with classroom space for, at most, 275 kindergarten through high school students.
Do the math: That’s nearly a quarter-million-dollars per school child. In Miami-Dade County a new school costs perhaps $30,000 per student.
Something tells me there might be some special little elite Cuban kids going there….with little beards….
And speaking of schools, some nuts in California want to pass a law to teach kids in kindergarten not to “touch” each other.
Fresh off a victory in getting a law passed that regulates sexual encounters between students on college campuses, feminist activists in California are now pushing for instruction on sexual “consent” for children starting in kindergarten.
You have to teach the concept of “sex” to a five-year-old first, in order for them to understand WHY they are not supposed to ‘touch’ each other, and Nobody Knows but it IS my Nobody’s Opinion, that forcing kids to think about sex at five, will only lead to MORE screwed up kids in the future— More rapes, more kids getting addicted to porn, more broken marriages…
Which…could be the plan, or maybe they really ARE that stupid.
Nobody Knows, but odds are, since they just took a poll and it has been announced that the American people voted that Barack Obama was the most admired man, and Hillary Clinton was the most admired woman, I’d say…the end COULD be very near.
Maybe I should start digging.
If you haven’t seen the NEW race riot video, where in July, a black man who didn’t do what the police wanted, was ‘killed’ see it below.
Now, I don’t know about you, but there are literally thousands of video’s showing cops (if you watch COPS on TV you can see this every night) trying to arrest a black man, and the black person always knows there’s a camera and they ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS are screaming discrimination.
Or, “You’re hurting meeee! Oh!!! OH!!! OH!!…stop it!”
It’s so common we are all used to it, as I’m sure the cops are.
Nevertheless, the black guy had a heart attack, due to the ordeal. And the cop was just found innocent.
It was perfect timing— this verdict coming out now. After all, after black Friday, the black rioters sort of disappeared. New York Christmas shopping is coming up!
Whatever you many think about who did what wrong here….nobody was hitting this man. We have seen cops being ruthless in some tapes, and remember, that’s VERY rare.
This seemed more like a big mistake.
BUT…when the Mayor of New York insinuates that white people are at fault “going back decades” you can be rest assured the democratic party have marching orders…
RALLY THAT WAR! White people are to blame!
Nobody Wins.. when politicians try to incite riots…..especially the black people who are trying hard to abide by the law.
I might live near Ferguson, but I’m damn sure glad I don’t live in New York.
It’s been really interesting today, on all the talk shows, hearing the democrats trying to defend Obama’s actions last week on immigration. But one thing you have to give them credit for: they have got their talking points down pat:
1. Obama HAD to do something because the republicans have not done a thing on immigration. “Congress was unwilling to act.”
(Lie: They sent hundreds of bills to the Senate, and Harry Reid refused to bring them to the floor.)
2. Only 47 percent of the voters voted, therefore, the rest of the people WANTED Obama to do something and support this.
(Lie, Obama’s supporters stayed home because they don’t really care what he does, those are the 47percent that don’t PAY any taxes and are finding out Obama lied.)
3. Obama has the right to do what he did because other Presidents did the same.
(Lie, they worked with Congresses who had just passed immigration laws. Only Congress can pass immigration laws. Obama has no such power, and by his own admission.)
4. The republcians are only concerned about the border on the South, not protecting the other borders.
(This of course, borders on the absurd….it’s like saying you only care about the cancer in my brain not the stuffy nose I get from allergies.)
It’s been a real barf watching the slick enthusiasm of the democrats–mostly Hispanics, coming to the defense of Obama’s impeachable crime. Even Obama himself, has come out and claimed that—as President, he has the right to let five millions illegals stay in America. Poor things, just needed some help from him, and when everyone was outraged he said this:
“Well, my response is pass a bill. Congress has a responsibility to deal with these issues and there are some things that I can’t do on my own.”
What? You just did!
So, you have to ask yourself, how do democrats get by with such falsehoods, lies, deceptions, and the republicans don’t?
The answer is: Salemenship.
Let’s take a look at some examples of great salesmen;
Have you ever wondered WHY Microsoft cornered the market on its product? Was it just because it was so good? Take a look at the man who sold it:
Steve Ballmer. (Pretty funny) Steve could sell you a ticket to the gas chamber, that’s how good he is. (Wait…that’s sort of what Obama did….)
And then there’s THIS guy: Illinois Representative Luis Gutierrez, he was on Face the Nation this morning and he ran rings around his conservative opponent. Sure, ALL his arguments were BS, and full of holes, and his belief is that the illegals that are here, are as deserving to be here as you and I. And he sells that nonsense, like Steve Ballmer could sell you the next trip to the moon with China at the helm.
I kept yelling at the conservative guy to SAY something, REFUTE! Point out that the Canadians are not sending 100,000 unaccompanied kids into Idaho last time you looked…but no. He was totally boring, and Bob Schaeffer made sure Gutierrez had the most time. Here he admits that it’s all about getting democratic voters..and makes it all sound wonderful.
And last but not least is this guy, Joel Osteen, not your typical Evangelist. I listened to part of his sermon today, and boy, was it ever clever. He basically said, that you WILL get rich and famous, IF your parents had sacrificed to the church, and believed in God, and this devotion will be paid down to you. The more you GIVE money to the church, and he threw in other worthy causes, the more YOU will benefit in your own life. God WILL reward you.
(Never mind that millions living in poverty had religious parents too.)
Not a new story: As old as time itself: Give to us, and YOU will benefit. The oldest sales pitch around: Starting when Mohammed decided to steal the limelight of Jesus by claiming Allah choose HIM to be the new messiah, (Forget that guy Jesus) and everyone would get 72 virgins if they’d just come on over to Islam!
Joel is doing the very same thing that politicians do every day…and to see the ultimate pinnacle of hypocracy…in this video, Oprah Winfrey (the richest women in the US) chastised him for having a grand piano in his house, is about as hypocritical on her part, as it gets. As if..what she sells every day is worth money, and what he sells, is not.
So it’s all about salesmanship. And that’s what the Republicans lack. Ronald Reagan SOLD America. He sold the dreams of our fathers. It’s what we need.
Nobody Wishes we could all chip in and pay Steve Ballmer to sell America and her value to America again. (Steve? Are you bored with basketball yet?)
Do you think Jeb Bush OR Hillary Clinton would be able to sell themselves against a real salesmen with the talent of a Steve Ballmer or Joel Osteen?
And that’s been the complaint of everyone: The conservatives do NOT have that revolutionary voice, that strong voice that can SELL you freedom.
The only one that I can think of that would have matched the salesmanship of a Steve Ballmer, was Andrew Brietbart. Can you imagine if he were still alive?
And isn’t it fortuitous for the liberals that he’s no longer with us.
Is there another out there as courageous? Nobody Wonders.
Here in the “What you don’t know is a good thing.” U.S. universe, the daily chore of keeping the American public in complete ignorance of anything our government is doing, lets face it, takes trillions of dollars paid to Gruber experts, who will soon have some help from the FCC..but that’s tomorrow’s blog.
Like the very beloved American: Bill Cosby.
A regular plethora of women have come out in public to announce that Bill Cosby, that pillar of fatherhood, the man who never cusses, the epitome of decency and honesty…yes, he evidently liked to drug women, and then rape them. Or…so they claim. What we don’t know is WHY these women waited so long to come forth with their stories. Nobody can figure that one out.
Bill…is not saying much, but he used to joke about having to drug women, and so, what else has he done we might ask?
Whoopi Goldberg is sticking up for Bill, but by the looks of the women who claimed Bill drugged and raped them, and the fact that most of them were white…he might be racist. Who knew? Will Bill Cosby join the Bill Clinton’s of the world and continue to be loved?
And Nobody knows WHY a black man raped a poor women in Wichita, Kansas, and then set her on fire–nude. A man came to her rescue, but she is severely burned. None of us here in St. Louis know when the riots in Ferguson are supposed to start, because the “news” of the great St. Louis riots of 2014, are all over the world.
They are keeping it a secret…..shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.
Will setting people on fire now be on the list of “cool things to do?” Nobody Knows, but I’m wearing my fireproof pajama’s as long underwear, just to be safe.
And speaking of cool things to do:
Nobody Knows why in the world they voted on the Keystone Pipeline today, since the new Congress is not yet present. This is redundant and really stupid.
But why did they vote today? Was it because Mary Landrieu is DESPERATE to let her state knows that she really, really loves them?
While Democratic leaders agreed to help Landrieu by allowing a vote, they made it very difficult for the bill to pass — they insisted on 60 “yes” votes instead of just a simple majority.
The Senate fell just short of that threshold, as the final tally was 59-41.
I love those—- Oh my god…we lost by one vote!—-rigged affairs. Who knew the man whose grandfather started Standard Oil would be the one against it?
And speaking of secretive illuminate communists—-Somebody in Russia got this mysterious explosion on film, and Putin has not said a word about it.
Nobody Knows what it really is.—-But it sure blew up, and faded away quick.
Any ideas? One commentor said he thought it was a particle beam weapon…because Putin’s has secretive weapons that are WAY superior to anything the United States has, but he only hints at his new arsenal.
Obama, on the other hand, says he did NOT meet Jonathan Gruger at the White House, 27 times. And how could he have?
Nobody Knows. ‘President” Obama is as mysterious as an explosion that flames bright, then fizzles away. Frankly, he’s all fizzle now. I’m ready for the fizzle to dissipate into a slimy blob.
And so the world continues down the “You do not need to know unless we tell.” you path.
Next week, we ask the questions of why is it that our President can commit fraud, and not go to jail?
Nobody Knows, but just the fact that nobody has asked this question, makes you want to go driving on a long lonely road in Russia, singing, “Zip de do dah”…..”Zip pe de daaay!” “My oh my what a wonderful day! “
Just a few days ago, at a campaign stump in New Hampshire, Hillary Clinton said this:
So what really, when you strip it all away, is the Republican agenda for the rest of this election?” she said. “It’s what it’s been from the beginning. It’s fear. It’s trying to instill fear. They’re staking everything on it. Fear is the last resort of those who have run out of ideas and run out of hope.”
Of course, that’s exactly what Robert Reich is doing in this video, he is using fear because the democratic party have no ideas. They have been in charge and the country is a mess.
Robert is trying to SCARE women to go vote against Republicans. He draws a poor little stick women, and says that Republicans have a war on women. Obama talked about it in the LAST election, then right after the election, that war disappeared…..notice that?
Women might have to go back to paying for their own abortions and contraceptives! The country will simply fall apart!
And that might be a real threat when you consider that..the democrats have destroyed private enterprise…and women without government jobs are doomed to poverty!
Robert then goes to point two: Equal Pay. Every woman I know personally, makes just as much as a man, if not more. Hillary Clinton being an excellent example.
Can the lies get worse?
Yes they can! The poor women working at fast food restaurants won’t get that raise says Robert. Not that they need it, because most of them are getting food stamps, and other goodies. If the economy improved they could actually get better paying jobs! God forbid THAT happen.
What should women REALLY fear? Open borders that bring in thousands of new diseases like polio, TB, killer viruses like Ebola, and Obama has plunked these kids down in every state. YOUR kid could be next to get TB. That’s fear.
Open borders: Where ISIS can come into your town, set up camps, and Mosques and turn your city into a training camp waiting for the orders to destroy you. And your politicians, protect them, NOT you. In fact, they do this in every nation. What makes you think they will leave YOU alone? Do you really want your daughter to be submissive to Sharia Law someday?
Obamacare: You will no longer be able to afford care. Your deductable is about to skyrocket. Stock up on herbs, you won’t be able to get sick. If you think free birth control pills cost a lot, wait until you have to pay for your kid’s broken bone.
Illegal’s will get discounts into the local college, you will have to pay full price.
Want a husband? Tough. Men are the new enemy, and Obama is your daddy. Have sex, not love, that’s their plans for you. No love. No help. Just sex, and abortions. Sounds fantastic? Hey, vote democrat. It’s your choice.
You have to wonder why the REAL fears of our economy being destroyed by democrats are just “fear mongering”—- but the rather petty and minor fear of making some man use a condom, is not.
What did you say? Oh…I see —-what IF you get pregnant?
Your life…is over. No man is going to help you out.
But be not afraid dear liberal, abortions will still be legal, and you can always get money from Planned Parenthood, and according to Obama…you will probably not get Ebola.
Unless of course, you are a nurse.
By the way, Moveon.org is sending this video to every liberal women in America.
Let’s hope they are not all that stupid.
Nobody Gets Email
I just got this from my liberal friend, JR, who grew up in the fifties, and he just loves this video.
If you like classic CARS, and great old songs, you will enjoy this. I grew up with the Beatles…but I have had to sing every single one of those songs at one time or other when working on a job.
And believe it or not, Roy Orbison is hard to sing…even for a girl.
Be sure to catch the car whose trunk holds the top. (Any of you guys know who made that car?)
(Thanks to JR)
Many of you may think I’m older than Mt. Rushmore when I say that, after watching this video, I had to go get out my Shirley Temple movies.
I wanted to dose myself in bubble bath, and burn every single Halloween Princess costume ever made. I will never look at Snow White quite the same way ever again.
Uh…did you get that subliminal message too? Did you NOT want to do these young girls a real favor, and give them all shock treatments so that they can FORGET what they just did?
You have to laugh, at the very first comment: The last thing any of the feminists are— are strong. They can’t even buy their own birth control pills. They need Daddy Obama to give them a phone, food stamps, and permission to ask for a raise.
I hate to tell the liberal feminists their own history, but guess what? Your feminist movement REALLY backfired girls. While good men were going to the moon, you were fighting for the right to get nude, and have stoned sex in the mud at Woodstock.
Congratulations! You won! We now no longer have a space program, but we have little girls that will grow up to run political campaigns, and one IS just about to neuter the country forever.
We can now ride bikes with thongs on.
We see more sex and gore coming out of Hollywood and now our teachers can talk about sex to our children—it’s beyond a sexual revolution…it’s the party at the bottom of Mt. Sinai on steroids. But… Guess what? You played RIGHT into the boy’s hands, you stupid morons.
You’ve come a long way baby.
What’s that I hear you saying? Men shouldn’t treat you like sluts? It’s not fair that they look at your boobs and ass?
But you want to look like Miley Cyrus, sooooo…tell me how that fits into reality again?
We just heard that the women are feeling scared in America. Obama isn’t ‘protecting ‘ THEM!
I’m sorry. You didn’t have a father to protect you? And WHY is that? (Be thankful you were born.)
So, the sign of a true feminist is one who enables her serial rapist husband to continue his sexual appetite though-out their marriage. That’s what Hillary did. A real feminist would have left him—WAY back in Arkansas.
But it doesn’t matter, Hillary I’ve heard can really cuss.
The most important point we should get out of this video is that it shows us just how culturally low the whole democratic party really is: They truly are: Classless.
Mark Stein said it perfectly last week…You can’t have a conservative government with a liberal culture.
In other words, even if the government is flooded with conservatives, you will still see Bayonne flapping her ‘ass’ on TV, and more classless politicians and vulgarity— America is falling deeper into the cesspool of rapper, black violence, drugs, and sex in an American revisited Sodom and Marxist Gomorrah…every one chasing after that golden Apple I-Phone 22.
And the biggest hypocrisy in this whole thing? The video was made to sell T-shirts that say..
Are you ready for this big feminist statement?
“Girls just want to have fun!”
In other words, be a powerful women, got out there and fuck all the men, as democrats do.
