I had so many people send me this video, and Sunday morning is the PERFECT time to post it. It’s so very uplifting.
I hope this video is driving Holder and Obama out of their minds. (OMG…they let the Christians have worship? Who knew?)
These are American Marines in a prayer meeting at Camp Pendleton.
God bless them all!
(I want to go to THAT church!)

It’s Saturday! Let’s get right to the good stuff:

Marked dollar bill You don’t think we’re in a war?
A lady in Monte Vista, CO had this dollar bill. This is her story. After dinner she took a $1 dollar bill out of her purse and displayed it on the table. Underneath the words “In God We Trust” someone had stamped the dollar bill in red ink— NO GOD BUT ALLAH. We asked her where she got this dollar bill. She said it was part of her change in Alamosa , CO .
We took this picture of her dollar bill. These are beginning to show up all around our country! If anyone tries to give you one of these dollar bills as change, please refuse it and ask them to give you a dollar bill that has not been defaced.
Send this on to everyone you can. May God bless our USA — And quickly, before what we know and love is forever gone!
Sorry…I missed my afternoon deadline for Friday, so, Nobody Cares if I just post this really cool video of one of our soldiers (obviously somewhere in the Middle East) playing the Star Spangled Banner during Muslim prayer time.
And let’s add to that uplifting moment, this picture of a sunset that was taken on 9/11 over Richmond, VA.
Rupert Murdoch was on FOX today, and the discussion was about Scotland’s independence, and somehow the subject got around to why people all over the world were upset: He basically said that the rich are getting much richer, and the poor are getting poorer.
As long as the little guy’s life got better, he could have cared less about how rich the Duponts, or the Rockefeller’s, or even Rupert Murdoch got. But, since the great crash of 2008, the people of the world have watched the rich elites get richer, while everyone else had to make do with much less than before.
The masses are NOT happy, and Scotland is just the tip of the iceberg.
So, I thought it would be a good time to remember a senator named Huey Long. Huey was a democratic Senator from Louisiana in 1935, (during the first depression) and here are a few things he said on a radio address given in January, 1935. You will be reminded of how little the democratic party has changed:
“We ran Mr. Roosevelt for the presidency of the Unites States because he promised to us by word of mouth and in writing:
- That the size of the big man’s fortune would be reduced so as to give the masses at the bottom enough to wipe out all poverty: and
- That the hours of labor would be reduced that all would share in the work to be done and in consuming the abundance mankind produced.
What these promises meant was:”Share our wealth.”
When I saw him spending all his time of ease and recreation with the business partners of Mr. John D. Rockefeller Jr, with such men as the Astors, etc, maybe I ought to have had better sense than to have believed he would ever break down their big fortunes to give enough to them masses to end poverty. Millions of people were fooled at the same time.
He goes on:
- The Fortunes of the multimillionaires and billionaires shall be reduced so that no one person shall own more than a few million dollars to the person.
- We propose to limit the amount any one man can earn in one year or inherit to $1 million to the person.
- With that money we will provide a home and the comforts of home, with such common conveniences as radio and automobile for every family in America, free of debt.
- We guarantee food and clothing and employment for everyone who should work by shortening the hours of work to thirty hours per week, and to eleven months per year.
- .All education would be free. Even college. Why have the right to a college education depend upon whether the father or mother is so well to do as to send a boy or girl to college.
- A pension to everyone over 60.
- Forgive everybody’s debt.
The few own everything, the masses own nothing.
I imagine Huey would be very popular with Obama if he were alive today, and Harry Reid would have serious competition.
Of course, Huey’s ideas are nothing new. He was popular in his day. According to Wikipedia, he did a lot of good things for Louisiana for the short time he was there. Many of Huey’s wildest dreams of wealth redistribution have actually been put in place by the democratic party.
And if he were alive today, he would be saying the very same things, and I’m sure would have just as big a following as he did in 1935.
Getting back to Rupert Murdoch and Scotland—Nobody has quite figured out how to stop the rich elites from grabbing all the power and wealth, while millions of other people lead lives of “quiet desperation.” We don’t need to take the money from the rich, we just need the rich to stop stacking the deck in their favor.
Figure THAT out, and you’d have a whole new world.
This was coming from my friend Ruth, a German woman who survived the bombing of Dresden. “and then she MARRIES him!”
I was sitting across the table at our annual “old ladies who swim” luncheon today, and I watched Ruth grab her hamburger and shake her head in disbelief.
She makes a good point, I thought: Since when do people lose their jobs for something they don’t do on the job? This is happening every single day. Even kids are getting kicked out of school for something they don’t even DO in school.
Even thirty years ago, this would not have happened.
She was talking about the subject that has been all over the news for two whole weeks. A football player named Ray Rice, was caught on video, knocking his girlfriend to the floor in an elevator. He then dragged her out of the elevator, and took her home. Obviously, they were both drunk.
Everybody knows that this happens more than we care to think about. Black men beat up their women at a rate higher than white men. Muslim men liked it so much, they wrote it into their religion.
But the excommunication ball got rolling in the fast pace of public lynching: The NFL suspended Ray Rice for life.
Then another football player named Andrian Peterson beat his kid, and we started on the subject all over again.
Well, that did it. Nike terminated Peterson’s deal, worth $750,000 a year. Although it didn’t end its relationship with Michael Vick (the dogfighter), Kobe Bryant OR Tiger Woods.
Anheuser-Busch weighed in on it too.
“We are disappointed and increasingly concerned by the recent incidents that have overshadowed this NFL season. We are not yet satisfied with the league’s handling of behaviors that so clearly go against our own company culture and moral code. We have shared our concerns and expectations with the league,” the statement said.
So, it’s okay to CHEAT on your wife, abuse animals, but…you can’t knock a woman out cold. (And make sure you don’t mention you just had a few Buds)
Maybe we need to review what moral code everybody is following. Like Obama’s war strategy, it’s all over the map.
We have MORE:
Arizona Cardinals running back Jonathan Dwyer was arrested Wednesday on aggravated assault charges in connection with two altercations at his home in July involving a woman and an 18-month-old child, the latest in a string of such cases involving NFL players.
Wow. The NFL is on a roll…
Glenn Back had this to say, and I would imagine there are a lot of people who agree with him:
“I’m telling you right now that the only things that matter are principles and values, how you deal with people, how you behave in your personal life and how you behave in your business life,” Beck said. “That’s it. … If you don’t start falling in line with true values, if you don’t start falling into line with eternal principles and common decency, your business is over. It’s just over. And I give that message to the NFL.”
“We are teaching our kids that it doesn’t matter what you do in your personal life, as long as you excel at whatever it is that you do,” Beck concluded. “That’s wrong. That’s showing them that money is over everything else. It’s not.”
Wait…”WE” ? Who are ‘we’? Let’s get this straight. Before the private lives of football players became the most discussed subject on the National stage, we had the private lives of politicians to talk about…only the media cleverly HID all their abuse, (and killings, and murders, and wife beatings) for years.
Glenn Beck was saying today that the State Department was covering up prostitution rings by their ambassadors.
Bill Clinton raped a woman. He kept his job…he almost bit her tongue off. He embarrassed a whole country with his philandering, and he is one of the most popular men on the planet.
And how about those liberal values? Aren’t they really to blame for most of this? John Kennedy…FDR…no values. No principles. How many horn dogs have occupied the White House, and what kind of example do THEY set for the rest of the nation?
Is Nike or Anheuser Busch going to come out and publicly ostracize them?
Yes, we all want morals. But…I can’t help but go back to Ruth.
BEFORE cameras, before NSA, before… Face it, your cooked book…. before cell phones, American’s private lives almost never effected their jobs. Unless of course they got arrested.
We are in a whole new world of crime and punishment. I’m just wondering when they are going to be putting this stuff up on BIG screens throughout the cites.
I heard a male friend of mine say with a resounding gusto of testosterone and common sense of justice…YES!
Nobody Thinks this stuff has happened since the beginning of time, but only NOW with government surveillance, does the whole world get to punish you, and then Nobody Wins when we are all on camera.
In 1984, there was a camera in every room watching your every move.
If I was Ray’s Wife, I’d get him that new giant HD Samsung TV.
We are all spies now.
It’s another week of total confusion: First—we are going to war, then, no, we are only doing counter terrorists strikes. Then Obama says it’s a war, but no boots on the ground, then maybe boots on the ground.
Well look: This about sums it up: (confusion starts at 3.52)
Obama can’t be seen going to war, and Glenn Beck says this is all about going to war in Syria, but then, elections are coming up in two months, so what can Obama do to make it look to the voters that he’s not dragging us back to war?
He can SAVE Africa!
WASHINGTON — Under pressure to do more to confront the Ebola outbreak sweeping across West Africa, President Obama on Tuesday is to announce an expansion of military and medical resources to combat the spread of the deadly virus, administration officials said.
The president will go beyond the 25-bed portable hospital that Pentagon officials said they would establish in Liberia, one of the three West African countries ravaged by the disease, officials said. Mr. Obama will offer help to President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf of Liberia in the construction of as many as 17 Ebola treatment centers in the region, with about 1,700 treatment beds
The American government will also provide 400,000 Ebola home health and treatment kits to Liberia, as well as tens of thousands of kits intended to test whether people have the disease That is worrisome, Dr. Osterholm said, because it is difficult to care for Ebola patients without becoming infected, and there is no proof that the kits will work. “We are going to endanger family members more by providing the kits,” he said.
AMAZING! Obama can send help half way around the world, set up the most efficient healthcare system seen anywhere on the earth, in fact, put our own men and women in harm’s way of death just to treat the people of Africa, (sending loaded guns just in case that virus comes at them with a deadly sword) but he can’t send more troops to Iraq to save people from getting their heads cut off.
Not to mention, did our dying veterans in THIS country get the help they were promised?
On the one hand, if Scotland leaves, Britain will be downsized, and Sean Connery will no longer be welcomed by the Queen. Somehow, I bet the vote comes down to just a few votes, in the Queen’s favor. You can’t tell me the rich in Scotland will sit by and let this happen. There are CASTLES at stake maaaan!
I suppose Scotland leaving England would be much like California leaving the United States. Personally, I like my mother’s idea. (Bless here soul: may she be NOT watching TV in heaven) Give California and New York to the liberals, let them break off from the rest of the country….we’d have the food basket. If California wanted our soybeans and corn, we could trade for some of their fruit. We could give Chicago back to the Indians.
I’m ready for a change. And speaking of change—
Leonardo DiCaprio has been tapped by the United Nations to be honored with the title of Messenger of Peace. This is what he said:
“It’s an honor to accept the role of U.N. Messenger of Peace on Climate Change and to support the Secretary General in his efforts to address one of the most important issues we face as a global community,” said DiCaprio in a statement.” ( and put the money in my Cayman account)
“I feel a moral obligation to speak out at this key moment in human history — it is a moment for action. How we respond to the climate crisis in the coming years will likely determine the fate of humanity and our planet.”
Wait! The fate of humanity? LEO..that’s Nancy Pelosi’s line! Nancy Pelosi said the fate of humanity depends on whether the democrats can hold the Senate!
What is Leonardo is going to do if the republicans take control of the Senate? Will he be peaceful?
Will he be full of peace and love and all good things? Is he going to tell us not to eat meat on Mondays? Will he get his picture taken with Nancy riding down Wall Street in the back of her limo?
But, that’s not the biggest question of the week. The BIGGEST question on my mind was WHO put the horns on Obama’s photo-op out of the White House last week, while he was announcing sending ‘advisors’ to Iraq?
Was it a liberal camera man who was secretly mad about it?
OR…is Obama claiming his REAL throne?
And will he be at the Satan Fest next week?
Nobody knows…but we do know one thing…he’s there in spirit.
And so, dear readers, we end another week of complete ignorance to which I can always say:
Seize the ignorant per diem!
I will go forever onward in my own nobody way, with only one thought in mind:
“You will have to take that hamburger out of my cold, dead, hands, Leo.
Stick to making movies about scumbags.”
This week, we don’t have to go any further than that great melting pot of talent called New York.
We have a Nobody’s Perfect contest between the people who dress up as Cartoon Characters in Times Square, VS the newly crowned Miss America, who, you guessed it— is from New York!
This is going to be a tough one.
First: Let’s take the dweebs that harass tourists in Times Square. It seems there are ways to make a living, and there are ways to…make a living and not pay taxes. It’s been a long time since I’ve been to Times Square, but since Rudy Giuliani cleaned up the “LIVE SEX ON STAGE!” acts, ALL the men from Wall Street have gone mad…wait….no…. the corporates have moved in and made it a very family friendly experience— you know, a place you can take the kids and watch Batman and Spiderman duke it out…for REAL. Several weeks ago, Spiderman hit a cop, and yes, Batman and Spiderman were arrested for fighting.
Cookie Monster has been known to grab at other things besides cookies.
Since I can’t figure out why Marvel doesn’t sue these people for using their trademarked and copyrighted images, it seems the city of New York has let this go on. But, too many people are showing up dressed as Cartoon Character (70?) and that means too many guys bantering for the same $5.00.
Second: And then you have Miss America…
Kira Kazantsev, the contestant from New York, won the Miss America contest last night, and everybody today is having trouble understanding why. In the talent contest she decided to sit on the floor and play…not four, not fifteen, not twenty, but ONE plastic cup. And that was even hard for her.
I couldn’t figure this out. She had a decent voice, WHY distract from it? You can’t imagine the horror of all New Yorkers…a place that has been known to produce some of the finest talent in the world. And this insult after the fantastic funeral from a REAL New Yorker…Joan Rivers.
I don’t know about you, but it doesn’t make me want to visit Broadway any time soon.
So, who wins the Nobody’s Perfect Award for the week?
Frankly, I didn’t watch the Miss America contest, so I’m going by the video here. I’m guessing she looked pretty good in her swimsuit, or somebody donated a LOT of money to the right judge. While the rest of America wonders what in the world this girl did in college to learn how to play cups besides drink shots of vodka, we can only wonder why she didn’t just sing the song standing on her feet. Still, there have been worse acts to come out of New York…Hillary Clinton for one.
Shame on them. I’m almost tempted to get a plane to New York, dress up as Wonder Woman, and throw them both out of Times Square!
(Ha! Ha!) Sure. Maybe I’ll just follow them around and beat loudly on a plastic cup, while singing “I’m Henry the VII I am!” and drive them crazy enough that they quit and get a minimum wage job like the rest of us.
So, it’s official—- the Mayor of New York wins the Nobody’s Perfect Award for the week.
Be the draconian progressive that you are Mayor De Blasio, and make these people pay taxes like the rest of us, or let Marvel take them to court.
Didn’t you learn ANYTHING in Russia?
Remember when Obama, AND John McCain, AND John Kerry, were trying to drum up the American people into going to war in Syria and getting rid of that evil man Assad? We were told that he was evil and gassing his own people, even though, his country had always allowed Christians to reside peacefully. John Kerry used to dine with him.
Many of us remember President George W. Bush making the same case for going into Iraq. Saddam Hussein was evil and cruel to his own people, and had WMDs. It was right after 9/11 and so the people trusted him.
Why didn’t they follow through with it? Obama kept telling us he HAD the power go it alone in Syria.
But weary of wars, the American people had heard it all before and along with the men in uniform, and there was a resounding: NO.
So, like gun control, the politicians have just put it aside for another day…and isn’t that day coming fast again?
Usually wars have to be started with some kind of outrage. The latest beheading of Americans and British journalists are welcomed by Obama. He says, it will make the other Muslims see how evil they are. But it has also infuriated western civilization everywhere, hasn’t it?
(Ask yourself—WHY havn’t those video’s been taken down?)
Now, the logical thing for any leader to do, would be to go get this one man for now…who is making all the gruesome videos. But our leaders will use this somehow to drum up the people into going into Syria. It’s just a matter of days.
If you watched the above video, then you would know by Wesley Clark’s words that taking out Assad is part of the New World Order, which according to this young man, is all about keeping the dollar as the Petro standard.
And what does this have to do with Henry Kissinger, writing an editorial in the Wall Street Journal about the New World Order?
Just how IS that New World Order coming along–- Henry?
“The clash between the international economy and the political institutions that ostensibly govern it also weakens the sense of common purpose necessary for world order. The economic system has become global, while the political structure of the world remains based on the nation-state. Economic globalization, in its essence, ignores national frontiers. Foreign policy affirms them, even as it seeks to reconcile conflicting national aims or ideals of world order.”
Translation: We need a one world currency, and those pesky countries just keep trying to get rid of the dollar. No matter how hard we try, people just don’t want to become one big global nation and get rid of those damn borders. Only OUR banks need to control the markets. And the world is just not co-operating at the moment.
The New World Order, if you need a refresher course, was thought up long ago by the elite bankers and politicians, who decided that in order to spread democracy we need to get into every country’s market, and tie ALL the markets together, making them dependent on one another so that no nation would go to war, ending all wars forevermore.
That was the lofty goal they all toasted. The REAL goal, was about, as usual, control of the money, and who gets the most of it.
Henry also says:
“The prevalent American view considered people inherently reasonable and inclined toward peaceful compromise and common sense; the spread of democracy was therefore the overarching goal for international order. Free markets would uplift individuals, enrich societies and substitute economic interdependence for traditional international rivalries.”
Right. See, Henry puts it into his usual gobbley gook nonsense. Except, globalization hasn’t really worked out to their lofty idea has it? America has been plundered, and China remained communist, and used our American CEO’s to their advantage, putting millions out of work in America. We have 96 million people still unemployed here, and our CEO’s want communism here since it has worked out so well for China.
And globalization has placed China on the road to being Numero Uno. Nevertheless, in a global stock market, it makes no difference if America is number one in anything.
Henry goes on:
“The international order thus faces a paradox: Its prosperity is dependent on the success of globalization, but the process produces a political reaction that often works counter to its aspirations.”
Didn’t expect to sacrifice the United States, Henry?
“To play a responsible role in the evolution of a 21st-century world order, the U.S. must be prepared to answer a number of questions for itself: What do we seek to prevent, no matter how it happens, and if necessary alone? What do we seek to achieve, even if not supported by any multilateral effort? What do we seek to achieve, or prevent, only if supported by an alliance? What should we not engage in, even if urged on by a multilateral group or an alliance? What is the nature of the values that we seek to advance? And how much does the application of these values depend on circumstance.”
“The contemporary quest for world order will require a coherent strategy to establish a concept of order within the various regions and to relate these regional orders to one another.”
Well, I don’t know about you, but Kissinger with these words seems to prove that the guy in this video is EXACTLY right. The United States will use military force to get its way and damn the rest of the world if it won’t join us, because all the leaders in the world are wise to what Henry’s New World Order would mean for them.
Here is what he had to say about Hillary:
“And she ran the State Department in the most effective way that I’ve ever seen.” More effectively than he did, his interviewer asked? “Yes,” he replies, adding: “I was more chaotic.”
(God, don’t you just want to punch something? Pass me that pillow.)
And IF all these things come to pass, IF the United States goes to take out Syria, and Iran, and therefore gets into it with Russia and China, do you really want Hillary Clinton protecting the United States?
Does she have enough buttons?
I’m watching the start of the Hillary can be a great military leader propaganda campaign right now on PBS with the story of the Roosevelt’s. The word “progressives” was said as if an angel was mouthing it from on high.
Hey, the Roosevelt strategy worked with Obama. Before 2016, Hillary will be compared as being smarter and braver than all the Roosevelt’s combined.
So this Nobody asks, as she sits alone in front of her computer tonight, listening to the last crickets of the summer,–if Hillary is allowed to become President…
What difference does it make?
I told you that this kid would be a big star.
Here’s his first commercial.
(Let’s hope he stays off drugs.)
Liberals think all human beings can be socially engineered to their own ideas of utopia—-conservatives want to stick with what has worked in the past. Liberals are idealists, conservatives are pragmatists.
In the book, The Storm Before the Calm, A New Humanity Manifesto, Neale Donald Walsch has just the way to get all humanity to get along:
Wealth will be redefined, with enormous consequences for society. What humans strive for, what humans work for, will have nothing to do with the accumulation of money, but rather the accumulation of value within their lives, for their families and for humanity as a whole.
Nobody Says: Accumulation of ‘value’? Who decides what is of value? What if some people think they are more ‘valuable’ than others?
The redefining of wealth will also produce a new kind of currency. Equal Value Exchange Credits (evecs) will be a new currency denomination, and it will take the form of any exchange, not merely the exchange of paper or coins of financial accounting credits, which brings equal value to both sides in a transaction. Those who do “Gods’ work” to earn more than modes amounts money without being made wrong.
Originally the purpose of economics was not to make a profit. The original purpose was simply to establish a system under which people could trade with each other, exchanging their goods and sharing their abilities, so that the entire community could survive. There is enough of everything we need for all of us to be truly happy and all we have to do is find a way to share it.
Nobody Says: Will Obama share Air Force One with me? And besides, this is communism 101…Hey…I saw Doctor Zhivago..TWICE!
What a bunch of malarkey. Mr. Walsch has been regurgitating the Future Shock of Alvin Toffler.
Mr. Walsch, like many liberals who would NEVER dare share their wealth, is busy writing another one of his utopian books as we speak, and someone somewhere, will buy this, and dream of a world where everybody will all have free everything.
Hey, I have an old guitar I want to trade…and I want a month’s worth of lobster.
What? Not a fair trade?
Okay. I’ll throw in my old Willie Nelson records.
You don’t have a record player?
What? I’m trading you the value of a guitar which will get you a lifetime of pleasure and that FAR outweighs the value of a month’s worth of succulent Lobsters!
As you can see, this won’t work. Everything has a different value to everyone else. I can’t help it you can’t play guitar.

And so, Enjoy a few more Jewish Jokes and have a toast the next time you’re out telling jokes–to a very funny lady. We are going to MISS her.
(Thanks to Kris)
Q: What’s the difference between a Rottweiler and a Jewish mother?
A: Eventually, the Rottweiler lets go.
Q: Why are Jewish men circumcised?
A: Because Jewish women don’t like anything that isn’t 20% off.
They tried to kill us. We won. Let’s eat.
Did you hear about the bum who walked up to a Jewish mother on the street and said, “Lady, I haven’t eaten in three days.”
“Force yourself,” she replied.
Q: How many Jewish mothers does it take to change a light bulb?
A: (Sigh) “Don’t bother. I’ll sit in the dark. I don’t want to be a nuisance to anybody.”
The Harvard School of Medicine did a study of why Jewish women like Chinese food so much. The study revealed that this is due to the fact that Won Ton spelled backward is
There is a big controversy on the Jewish view of when life begins. In Jewish tradition, the fetus is not considered viable until it graduates from medical school.
Why do Jewish divorces cost so much? They’re worth it.
When a funny man with a very cool British accent tells me that Apple is lining up the first “mark of the beastie” I listen!
It’s just a matter of time until we all have to just put our thumbprint on scanners everywhere, and to make us all get used to it, (as they have made us get used to being groped like fat fish at the airports) they are using the most popular phone on the planet.
Even my little Wal-Mart T-Mobile Special is getting me used to ‘pressing’ my thumb to get into it.
You know what this means, don’t you?
Looting thumbprint will be coming to your neighborhood soon!
And some great inventor will make millions with his new ‘thumb glue.’
Better thumbs than eyeballs I say.
I have good news: I have found more irrefutable proof that liberals are much less educated in all matters than conservatives. Tonight I found something in history that all the democrats could use to gain their (black) liberal voter’s favor on immigration,
They could even use this to get every single Hispanic vote, if only their wise and all-knowing professors even cared to read real history books, instead of getting on talk shows and talking about how they used to blow things up.
Want to know what they could us as golden propaganda?
Frederick Douglass…was against the Mexican War. He thought it was an abomination. He thought America..PLUNDERED the poor Mexicans.
I can just hear Geraldo now. (Shhhh….Keep this knowledge to yourselves.)
The Mexican war was bloody, but it was fought by all volunteers. The treaty to end the war was signed on February 2, 1848. It was ratified by Congress on May 30. (NOTE: Back then Congress ratified treaties!)
Not everybody was happy. Some people wanted MORE territory, and some people didn’t want any at all.
Here was Douglass’s editorial on March 17, 1848, which appeared in the North Star, of which he was the editor:
PEACE! PEACE! PEACE!
The shout is on every lip, and emblazoned on every paper. The joyful news is told in every quarter with enthusiastic delight We are such an exception to the great mass of our fellow countrymen in respect to everything else, and have been so accustomed to hear them rejoice over the most barbarous outrages committed upon an unoffending people, that we find it difficult to unite with them in their general exultation at this time: and, for this reason, we believe that by peace they mean plunder.
In our judgment, those who have all along been loudly in favor of a vigorous prosecution of the war, and heralding its bloody triumphs with apparent rapture, and glorifying the atrocious deeds of barbarous heroism on the part of wicked men engaged in it, have no sincere love of peace, and are not now rejoicing over peace but plunder. They have succeeded in robbing Mexico of her territory, and are rejoicing over their success under the hypocritical pretense of a regard for peace. Had they not succeeded in robbing Mexico of the most important and most valuable part of her territory, many of those now loudest in their professions of favor for peace would be loudest and wildest for war-–war to the knife.
Our soul is sick of such hypocrisy. We presume the churches of Rochester will return thanks to God for peach they did nothing to bring about, and boast it as a triumph of Christianity! That an end is put to the wholesale murder in Mexico is truly just cause for rejoicing: but we are not the people to rejoice: we ought rather blush and hang our heads for shame, and, in the spirit of profound humility, crave pardon for our crimes at the hands of a God whose mercy endure forever.
There you have it. Think of what someone like Debbie “Pull my crappy hair” Wasserman could do with this knowledge.
Okay. So La Raza is already on this.
You have to ask yourself, why haven’t the democrats brought up the Mexican War? Do they really think they will just flood Texas with Mexicans and get the votes anyway?
Of course that’s the plan. :)
What they are NOT telling you is that the real reason men like Frederick Douglass and John Quincy Adams were against the Mexican war, is that they saw it as a plan for the Southern States to expand their territory, and therefore their votes, and slavery could live on forever more.
And aren’t they trying to do this again? Obama is just erasing the borders all the way down to the Northern borders of Brazil, and he didn’t even have to fight a war to get those votes. (I bet absentee voting cards are all Mexico already.)
Neither Douglass nor Adams saw back then, that the divide against the North and South would settle slavery forever in America, and we would actually make better use out of that territory than Mexico ever could have.
Adams led the small Whig opposition to the Mexican-American War. Most Whigs dared not vote against the requisition bills for the war, as doing so would deny resources to Gen. Taylor’s army, which was already suffering casualties against Mexican forces. The final vote on the war in the House was 174-14. Adams led the tiny opposition and referred to the conflict with Mexico as “a most unrighteous war.”
The people of Mexico didn’t put up much of a fight. The Indians had been raiding them for years. They were pretty tired of it all.
But— Imagine someone like Joe Biden saying ” The great Frederick Douglass said that we plundered Mexico!” ?
Plunder. The word would catch on in tweets all over the world.
Americans…plunder. (You bet we do. You should see us eat French Fries)
What would never be expressed by any liberal is that Douglass and Adams were two of the most conservative and righteous men that ever graced our history, and great fighters for the abolition of slavery, for which both men fought all their lives. They truly were afraid of slavery spreading forevermore.
That wouldn’t come out if the democrats used history today.
So——–nobody tell them.
This is amazing isn’t it?
Janay Rice not only accepts the fact that she was fully punched and knocked out by the man who “loves” her and doesn’t care, she has the gall to go on the ATTACK. She is attacking all the media outlets who are exploiting the elevator film for ratings and controversy. How DARE anyone get in her business!
Let’s look at it from HER side. Maybe she thinks she was asking for it. And by cutting off all his paycheck, she will have to stop buying new shoes, new coats, new clothes, new cars…she sees her future as disappearing from her life. Is it any wonder that she so pissed? After all, he didn’t kill her. He said he would NEVER do it again. She must think that she really is special.
Now, lets look at it from OUR side: Are you nuts? Why didn’t you have him arrested? Why didn’t you press charges? Instead you MARRY the guy? What did he buy you to make up? Enquiring minds want to know: Was it a diamond ring? A new car? A fur?
Actually, MS Rice thinks just like a democrat. When you HAVE no defense for your actions–do what Obama does—–Attack the other side for even criticizing you.
Why…blame Bush! Blame the white racists who own the football teams. I can’t believe you haven’t thought of that MS Rice.
Nobody Wonders about the mentality of abused women, but I’d say, if Janay wants to believe that this man, will never touch her again, I wonder…
Has she ever heard the 911 calls to the police from Nicole Simpson, long before she was murdered?
Stupid is, as stupid does. We hope his money is worth it Janay. Oh wait: He’s going to lose all that money. Better get it while you can.
I’d say —Better get yourself a gun, and stop spitting.
