Leroy The Redneck Reindeer - by Joe Diffie - Steve Pippin - Stacey Slate (Joe Diffie 1996)

(Make sure your speakers are on. The words to the song are shown below!)


 










Leroy the Redneck Reindeer

(Joe Diffie / Steve Pippin / Stacey Slate)

Joe Diffie - 1996


Well, you've all heard about Rudolph and his nose,

But I'll tell you a Christmas tale that never has been told.

Well, you may think you've heard it all but you ain't heard yet.

About that crazy Christmas that the North pole can't forget.


Rudolph was under the weather, he had to call in sick.

So he got on the horn to his cousin Leroy, who lived out in the sticks.

He said: "Santa's really counting on me and I hate to pass the buck."

Leroy said "Hey I'm on my way," and he jumped in his pick-up truck.


When Leroy got to the North Pole all the reindeer snickered and laughed.

They'd never seen a deer in overalls and a John Deere Tractor hat.

But Santa stepped in and said: "Just calm down cause we've all got a job to do.

"And like it or not, Leroy's in charge, and he's gonna be leading you."


And it was Leroy, the red neck reindeer,

Hooked to the front of the sleigh.

Delivering toys to all the good ole boys and girls along the way.

He's just a down home party animal, two-stepping across the sky.

He mixed jingle bells with a rebel yell, and made history that night.


Before that night was over, Leroy had changed their tune.

He had them scootin' a hoof on every single roof, by the light of a neon moon.

Santa wrapped his bag with a Dixie flag, he was having the time of his life.

And you can hear him call Merry Christmas y'all, and to all of y'all a good night.


And it was Leroy, the red neck reindeer,

Hooked to the front of the sleigh.

Delivering toys to all the good ole boys and girls along the way.

He's just a down home party animal, two-stepping across the sky.

He mixed jingle bells with a rebel yell, and made history that night.

He mixed jingle bells with a rebel yell, and made history that night.

Merry Christmas And Happy Holidays To All - Now Here Are Some Recent Holiday Jokes/Stories That I Received Via Email!

Subject: FW: [joke] Holiday Eating Tips


1. Avoid carrot sticks. Anyone who puts carrots on a holiday buffet table knows nothing of the Christmas spirit. In fact, if you see carrots, leave immediately. Go next door, where they're serving rum balls.

2. Drink as much eggnog as you can. And quickly. Like fine single-malt scotch, it's rare. In fact, it's even rarer than single-malt scotch. You can't find it any other time of year but now. So drink up! Who cares that it has 10,000 calories in every sip? It's not as if you're going to turn into an eggnog-aholic or something. It's a treat. Enjoy it. Have one for me. Have two. It's later than you think. It's Christmas!

3. If something comes with gravy, use it. That's the whole point of gravy. Gravy does not stand alone. Pour it on. Make a volcano out of your mashed potatoes. Fill it with gravy. Eat the volcano. Repeat.

4. As for mashed potatoes, always ask if they're made with skim milk or whole milk. If it's skim, pass. Why bother? It's like buying a sports car with an automatic transmission.

5. Do not have a snack before going to a party in an effort to control your eating. The whole point of going to a Christmas party is to eat other people's food for free. Lots of it. Hello?

6. Under no circumstances should you exercise between now and New Year's. You can do that in January when you have nothing else to do. This is the time for long naps, which you'll need after circling the buffet table while carrying a 10-pound plate of food and that vat of eggnog.

7. If you come across something really good at a buffet table, like frosted Christmas cookies in the shape and size of Santa, position yourself near them and don't budge. Have as many as you can before becoming the center of attention. They're like a beautiful pair of shoes. If you leave them behind, you're never going to see them again.

8. Same for pies. Apple. Pumpkin. Mincemeat. Have a slice of each. Or, if you don't like mincemeat, have two apples and one pumpkin. Always have three. When else do you get to have more than one dessert? Labor Day?

9. Did someone mention fruitcake? Granted, it's loaded with the mandatory celebratory calories, but avoid it at all cost. I mean, have some standards.

10. One final tip: If you don't feel terrible when you leave the party or get up from the table, you haven't been paying attention. Reread all tips; start over, but hurry, January is just around the corner.

Remember this motto to live by: "Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, martini in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO what a ride!"

Subject: [joke] Nativity Scene


In a small Southern town there was a "Nativity Scene" that showed great skill and talent had gone into creating it. One small feature bothered me. The three wise men were wearing firemen's helmets.

Totally unable to come up with a reason or explanation, I left. At a "Quick Stop" on the edge of town, I asked the lady behind the counter about the helmets.

She exploded into a rage, yelling at me, "You damn Yankees never do read the Bible!" I assured her that I did, but simply couldn't recall anything about firemen in the Bible.

She jerked her Bible from behind the counter and ruffled through some pages, and finally jabbed her finger at a passage. Sticking it in my face she said "See, it says right here, 'The three wise man came from afar.'"

Subject: FW: [joke] Happy Thanksgiving (US)


Today is Thanksgiving in the US. People are travelling to be with family and/or friends, turkeys are being cooked, vast feasts are being laid out on crowded dining room tables. Parades are being watched, football games being played and teams being cheered on. Later today, people will be laying about in a food induced stupor.

You guys living in other countries are busy working and waiting for Friday to come, not knowing what you are missing .

Here is a quick video for your enjoyment today.

Top 10 things that sound dirty on Christmas, but aren't....

10. Did you get any under the tree?

9. I think your balls are hanging too low.

8. Check out Rudolph's honker!

7. Santa's sack is really bulging.

6. Lift up the skirt so I can get a clean breath.

5. Did you get a piece of the fruitcake?

4. I love licking the end till it's really sharp and pointy.

3. From here you can't tell if they're artificial or real.

2. Can I interest you in some dark meat?

1. To get it to stand up straight, try propping it against the wall.

"Before You Go" - Thank You Veterans And Happy Veterans Day!!!!

I got the below email from an online friend and thought I would share it on this day of thanks and remembrance for our Veterans.  Here is the video on YouTube, which I wanted to embed here but they have the embedding turned off so you'll have to go to the YouTube or the "Before You Go" website to watch and hear this fine song.

http://www.beforeyougo.us/play_byg (WWII and Korean War Version)

http://www.beforeyougo.us/play_byg_vn (Vietnam War Version)

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6A393E3wF-o

(The below email that I received seems to be an edited version of the full story here... http://www.beforeyougo.us/the_story_behind_before_you_go)

The elderly parking lot attendant wasn't in a good mood!


Neither was Sam Bierstock. It was around 1 a.m., and Bierstock, a Delray Beach, FL, eye doctor, business consultant, corporate speaker and musician, was bone tired after appearing at an event.

He pulled up in his car, and the parking attendant began to speak. "I took two bullets for this country and look what I'm doing," he said bitterly

At first, Bierstock didn't know what to say to the World War II veteran. But he rolled down his window and told the man, "Really, from the bottom of my heart, I want to thank you."

Then the old soldier began to cry.

"That really got to me," Bierstock says.

Cut to today.

Bierstock, 58, and John Melnick, 54, of Pompano Beach - a member of Bierstock's band, Dr. Sam and the Managed Care Band - have written a song inspired by that old soldier in the airport parking lot. The mournful "Before You Go" does more than salute those who fought in WWII. It encourages people to go out of their way to thank the aging warriors before they die.

"If we had lost that particular war, our whole way of life would have been shot," says Bierstock, who plays harmonica. "The WW II soldiers are now dying at the rate of about 2,000 every day. I thought we needed to thank them."

The song is striking a chord. Within four days of Bierstock placing it on the Web, the song and accompanying photo essay have bounced around nine countries, producing tears and heartfelt thanks from veterans, their sons and daughters and grandchildren.

"It made me cry," wrote one veteran's son. Another sent an e-mail saying that only after his father consumed several glasses of wine would he discuss " the unspeakable horrors" he and other soldiers had witnessed in places such as Anzio, Iwo Jima, Bataan and Omaha Beach . "I can never thank them enough," the son wrote. "Thank you for thinking about them."

Bierstock and Melnick thought about shipping it off to a professional singer, maybe a Lee Greenwood type, but because time was running out for so many veterans, they decided it was best to release it quickly, for free, on the Web. They've sent the song to Sen. John McCain and others in Washington. They hope every veteran in America gets a chance to hear it.

A Taxpayer Petition in Support of Preventing Tax HIkes - NTU.org (National Taxpayers Union)

I just signed the petition from the NTU directing Congress to pass legislation continuing the current tax rates (aka The President Bush Tax Cuts), otherwise a THREE TRILLION DOLLAR tax hike will take place next year... and we all know that Washington does NOT need to be spending and wasting even more money.  They already get $2.4 TRILLION to spend and can't even spend that responsibly and since Obama has been in office, they have been spending over a TRILLION DOLLARS MORE than the allowed $2.4 TRILLION (meaning deficits of OVER A TRILLION dollars a year under Obama AND $1.4 TRILLION THIS YEAR... which would be comparable to a family making $100,000 a year and spending over $140,000 a year and we all know that won't work!!!!)

Anyhow.. here's the link where you can sign the petition and I strongly encourage you to do so.

https://secure3.convio.net/ntu/site/Advocacy?cmd=display&page=UserAction&id=983&JServSessionIdr004

A Taxpayer Petition in Support of Preventing Tax Hikes

If Congress doesn’t act before the end of the year to prevent it, we’ll see an enormous $3 trillion tax hike take effect on January 1, 2011. Every single American, rich, poor, or in between, will see their income taxes rise, investment taxes skyrocket, and the revival of the currently expired Death Tax. These new burdens will devastate families and businesses across the country as they struggle to shake off the effects of the recession. Congress should act immediately to permanently extend current tax rates.


Recipients:
 
President Barack Obama
Your Senators
Your Representative

Message


A Taxpayer Petition in Support of Preventing Tax Hikes

Dear [Decision Maker],

Whereas, failing to act before the end of the year would lead to $3 trillion worth of tax hikes taking immediate effect at the beginning of 2011;

Whereas, failing to act before the end of the year would cause every income tax bracket to rise, investment taxes to skyrocket, and the currently expired Death Tax to return with a vengeance;

Whereas, higher taxes will devastate our shaky recovery by reducing incentives for individuals and businesses to work and invest;

Whereas, more than 300 economists from all across the country and the ideological spectrum signed on to a letter supporting extension of lower tax rates;

Whereas, the American people sent a resounding message in the 2010 midterm elections that they support lower taxes and smaller government;

Therefore: I urge the President and the United States Congress to act immediately to prevent huge new tax burdens by permanently extending current tax rates.

Sincerely,

[Your Name]

Dear [The message(s) you sent had each recipient's name here]:

Thomas Jefferson said: "To compel a man to furnish funds for the propagation of ideas he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical."

And yet, that is exactly what NPR, PBS and CPB do each and every day. The recent termination of Juan Williams proves that NPR is nothing more than a far-left propaganda mill. And the fact that NPR receives taxpayer dollars is, frankly, ludicrous. Simply put, the time has long past to cut off all taxpayer funding to NPR, PBS and CPB.

If NPR wants to fire Juan Williams for violating its vague and loosely defined "editorial standards" ... FINE. But we (the American people) have every right to do the same to NPR for violating the American people's "editorial standards" and sensibilities.

Several Members of Congress have already commented on this issue and have expressed a desire to cut off NPR, PBS and CPB from receiving taxpayer dollars. Admittedly, some conservative members of Congress are indeed "talking the talk." But please know that merely talking the talk is not enough. The American people demand action and we want NPR, PBS and CPB defunded... now.

Please do everything in your power to ensure that happens without delay!

AND...

Don't fall for the 1% to 3% BS that NPR is putting out right now. They actually get from 23% to 41% of their funding at the expense of tax payers. Read more here...

BUT... even if you do fall for the 1% to 3% BS, I still DEMAND that you cut that tax payer funding as well. Let them stand on their merits like any other network.

The Ant And The Grasshopper - Democrat-Socialist Version

The following is the Democratic “common good” version of the old favorite, the Ant and the Grasshopper:

Remember the ant and the grasshopper?

OLD VERSION...

The ant works hard, in the withering heat, all summer long.  He builds his house and stores supplies for the winter.

The grasshopper thinks that the ant is a fool.  He laughs, dances and plays the summer away, preparing nothing for the coming winter.

Winter comes, the ant is safe and warm.  The grasshopper has no food or shelter, so he dies out in the cold.

The moral to the story being:  BE RESPONSIBLE FOR YOURSELF!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

NEW VERSION... (sad but true)

The ant works hard, in the withering heat, all summer long.  He builds his house and stores supplies for the winter.

The grasshopper thinks that the ant is a fool.  He laughs, dances and plays the summer away, preparing nothing for the coming winter.

Winter comes, the ant is safe and warm.  The shivering grasshopper calls a press conference and demands to know why the ant should be allowed to be warm and fed, while others are cold and starving!

CBS, NBC, ABC & CNN show up to provide pictures of shivering grasshoppers, next to a video of an ant in his comfortable home, with a table filled with food.

America is stunned by the sharp contrast! How can this be, that in a country of such wealth, this poor grasshopper is allowed to suffer this way?

Kermit the Frog appears on Oprah, with the grasshopper.  Everyone cries when they sing “It’s Not Easy Being Green”.

Jesse Jackson stages a demonstration in front of the ant’s house, where the news stations film the group singing “We Shall Overcome”. Jesse then has the group pray for the grasshopper’s sake, and reminds the group to contribute to his group, so that he can “continue the fight” for grasshoppers, everywhere!

Ted Kennedy (RIP) & John Kerry exclaim, in an interview with Tom Brokaw, that the ant has gotten rich, off the back of the poor grasshopper!  Both call for an immediate tax hike, to make the ant pay “his fair share”!

Finally, the EEOC drafts the “Economic Equity For Grasshoppers Act”, retroactive to the beginning of the summer.

The ant is fined for failing to hire the proportionate number of green bugs and, having nothing left to pay his retroactive taxes, his house is confiscated by the government.

Hillary Clinton gets her old law firm to represent the grasshopper, in a defamation suit against the ant. The case is tried in federal court, with a jury comprised of unemployed welfare recipients.

Surprise!  The ant loses the case!

The story ends, as we see the grasshopper finishing up the last bits of the ant’s food, while the government house he lives in (which happens to be the ant’s old house) crumbles around him, due to lack of maintenance!

The ant has disappeared in the snow.  The grasshopper is found, dead, in a drug-related incident.  The house, now abandoned, is taken over by a gang of spiders, who terrorize this once-peaceful neighborhood.

The moral of this version? Don’t vote for Democrats or liberals.

changing it's emblem from an Eagle to a CONDOM
because it more accurately reflects the

Limbaugh Labels Obama 'Jackass' on Economy - NewsMax.com

http://www.newsmax.com/InsideCover/Rush-Limbaugh-Obama-jackass-economy/2010/10/05/id/372708

By: David A. Patten Tuesday, 05 Oct 2010 05:53 PM

Radio talk-show giant Rush Limbaugh blasted President Barack Obama for his flawed understanding of the economy on Tuesday, referring to Obama as an "economic ignoramus" and a "jackass."

Triggering Limbaugh's wrath on his program were Obama's remarks to his economic recovery board on Monday.

At that meeting, top economic experts Martin Feldstein and William Donaldson advised the president to encourage businesses to hire workers by extending the Bush tax cuts. But Obama defended his policy of allowing taxes to increase on those families earning $250,000 or more.

"I don’t know any economists," said the president, "who think we are likely to get a bump in aggregate demand from $700 billion of borrowed money going to people like those of us around the table, who, if I suspect want a flat-screen TV, can afford one right now and are going out and buying one."

Limbaugh said he found it incredible that the president believes purchases of flat-screened televisions could bring about an economic recovery. He pointed out most of those are made in China anyway.

Obama is an “idiot, where capitalism is concerned,” Limbaugh said.

During the exchange with the economists, Obama said he was not concerned that wealthy people hit by large tax increases would "take their ball and go home," rather than contribute to economic activity.

According to ABC News, Limbaugh referred to the president as "our imam-child." Limbaugh shot back, “They have already taken their trillion-dollar ball home, and they're sitting on it, you jackass!"

Limbaugh pointed out that no one was proposing additional tax cuts. Extending the Bush tax cuts for everyone, Limbaugh said, would encourage businesses to invest and create jobs “which, once upon a time, we were told, was Obama’s top priority.”

Limbaugh added of the president: "He's a jackass. He's an economic illiterate. He's an economic ignoramus.”

“And that's being charitable.”

Disease Alert And Information About Gonorrhea Lectim

The Center for Disease Control has issued a warning about a new virulent strain of this old disease. The disease is called Gonorrhea Lectim. It's pronounced "Gonna re-elect 'em," and it is a terrible obamanation.

The disease is contracted through dangerous and high risk behavior involving putting your cranium up your rectum. Many victims contracted it in 2008...but now most people, after having been infected for the past 1-2 years, are starting to realize how destructive this sickness is.

It's sad because Gonorrhea Lectim is easily cured with a new drug just coming on the market called Votemout. You take the first dose in 2010 and the second dose in 2012 and simply don't engage in such behavior again; otherwise, it could become permanent and eventually wipe out all life as we know it.

Several states are already on top of this, like Virginia and New Jersey, and apparently now Massachusetts, with many more seeing the writing on the wall.

Please pass this important message on to all those bright folks you really care about... and might get a little chuckle from this one. ;-)

Immigration, World Poverty and Gumballs - Updated 2010 - By Roy Beck - NumbersUSA.com

Immigration can't help world's poor and it actually tends to hurt them.

Joke - Old Al The Rooster

Old Al

John was in the fertilized egg business. He had several hundred young layers (hens), called 'pullets,' and ten roosters to fertilize the eggs.

He kept records, and any rooster not performing went into the soup pot and was replaced. This took a lot of time, so he bought some tiny bells and attached them to his roosters. Each bell had a different tone, so he could tell from a distance, which rooster was performing.

Now, he could sit on the porch and fill out an efficiency report by just listening to the bells. John's favorite rooster, Old Al, was a very fine specimen, but this morning he noticed Old Al's bell hadn't rung at all!

When he went to investigate, he saw the other roosters were busy chasing pullets, bells-a-ringing, but the pullets, hearing the roosters coming, would run for cover.

To John's amazement, Old Al had his bell in his beak, so it couldn't ring. He'd sneak up on a pullet, do his job and walk on to the next one.

John was so proud of Old Al, he entered him in the Saint Lawrence County Fair and he became an overnight sensation among the judges.

The result was the judges not only awarded Old Al the "No Bell Piece Prize," but they also awarded him the "Pullet Surprise" as well.

Clearly Old Al was a politician in the making. Who else but a politician could figure out how to win two of the most coveted awards on our planet by being the best at sneaking up on the unsuspecting populace and screwing them when they weren't paying attention.

Vote carefully this fall, the bells are not always audible.

I found this joke on the net and it was called Old Butch but it seemed to fit AlGore and his lying, stealing, cheating ways much better than some guy named Butch... who might just be a good ol' boy.

You may have heard about the recent polls showing that over 70% of "Mainstream" Americans DO NOT want ObamaCare and actually favor REPEALING it.   http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/politics/current_events/healthcare/health_care_law
There also continues to be a large divide between the Political Class and Mainstream voters on the issue. While 73% of Mainstream voters favor repeal of the law, 86% of voters in the Political Class oppose repeal.
Of course, who are the "Political Class"?...  they are obviously people with their heads stuck up Obama's "Donkey" (a/k/a Ass), since "they" think things are heading in the right direction while 84% of "Mainstream" Americans know better, according to this Rasmussen poll and report.
67% of Political Class Say U.S. Heading in Right Direction, 84% of Mainstream Disagrees
Now, back to the earlier poll, here's another important snip from the report...
Fifty-seven percent (57%) of Likely Voters nationwide now favor repeal of the new health care law, including 46% who Strongly Favor repeal, according to the latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey.
"Likely Voters" are the folks that are most likely to vote instead of some polls that question people who may never vote or are very unlikely to even vote.

The NCPA (National Center for Policy Analysis), through the http://www.policypatriots.org/ website has fully studied the ObamaCare Plan and has released the following FREE downloads for a Detailed Analysis, a Pamphlet and a PowerPoint Presentation, available for download here or at the next three links.

And, from an email that I received from the NCPA:
NCPA President John C. Goodman Defends Seniors in Wall Street Journal Editorial! In an editorial entitled, "How Seniors Will Pay for ObamaCare," Goodman addressed an issue conspicuously absent from the health policy dialogue: who will foot the bill for ObamaCare. As Goodman writes, Medicare Advantage plans efficiently provide high-quality care. Consider:
Medicare Advantage enrollees had 33% more doctor visits, yet 18% fewer hospital days and 10% fewer hospital admissions than conventional Medicare patients.

Medicare Advantage enrollees had 27% fewer emergency-room visits, 13% fewer avoidable admissions, and 42% readmissions.

ObamaCare Demolishes Medicare Advantage. Goodman revealed that ObamaCare's costs will fall hardest on Medicare Advantage enrollees, a group of Americans disproportionately comprised of low-income households, minorities, and seniors. According to a report published by the Administration's own Medicare Office of the Actuary, about 7.4 million Medicare Advantage enrollees will lose their Medicare Advantage coverage completely.
OK America... voting for Conservatives this November is more important than in 1994 when Newt Gingrich led the Republican Revolution and took control of the House for the first time in 50 years.  That stopped HillaryCare from moving forward so we need to do the same thing to stop ObamaCare from moving forward.

I still have faith in the Courts that they will declare the mandate unconstitutional and that should make the entire ObamaCare law unconstitutional since the Dumbocrats failed to put in a severability clause in the law... which is put in nearly every law and contract so that IF a Court declares one part of the law or contract invalid, it doesn't invalidate the entire law or contract... but the Dumbocrats, in their zest to push this massive social program on America, failed to put in a simple severability clause which hopefully will be the downfall of this BIG tax and spend government program that will surely cost America far more than they project... just like every other social program has cost us 3X to 10X more than original projections.... and of course the taxes charged for Social Security are going to end up being 15X more than original projections.

All this said... God help America in November, 2010... so that we can restore our country back towards greatness once again.

Is Obama The Anti-Christ? Why Did He Drop "Creator" From The Quote From The Declaration Of Independence???

President Obama removed the reference to the "Creator" from the Declaration of Independence when he quoted a portion at a meeting of the Congressional Hispanic Congress.

Obama said, "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, endowed with certain inalienable rights: life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness."

But the actual quotation is:
"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."
The video, where the reference appears shortly past the 22-minute mark:

The Heritage Foundation Culture Watch - Poverty Explodes: Root Cause Is the Collapse of Marriage

New data released today by the U.S. Census Bureau show the largest increase in poverty in U.S. recorded history. An additional 3.7 million Americans fell into poverty in 2009. Buried in these numbers are the children born to single mothers, who are five times more likely to live in poverty than children born to married parents. Today, over 40 percent of children are born outside wedlock, and the numbers are particularly devastating for Hispanics (51.3 percent) and African Americans (71.6 percent).

A new report and chart book by Robert Rector of The Heritage Foundation illustrates how this steady rise in out-of-wedlock childbearing is one of the major causes of child poverty in the U.S. today. The report also links this collapse in marriage to a rise in welfare spending.

Since the beginning of the War on Poverty, the U.S. has spent $15.9 trillion on means-tested welfare. And today, spending on welfare programs is 13 times greater than it was in 1964. By undermining intact families and eroding the work ethic in low-income communities, the welfare state has encouraged dependency and intergenerational poverty.

If the United States is serious about reducing poverty and reining in federal welfare spending, it must strengthen marriage. We can do this in several ways, including reducing anti-marriage penalties in current welfare programs and providing factual information about the benefits of marriage throughout low-income communities.

Congratulations To New York City (and Chicago) Voters For Knocking New Orleans And Louisiana Off The Top Of The Most Stupid Voters In America List!!!

Here's a comment I made on TheHill.com's article about Charlie Rangle winning his party's nomination go go back to Congress for another two years.

ROTFLMFAO @ New York for taking away our long-standing award of being the most stupid city in America… after New Orleans re-elected the crook, William "Dollar Bill" Jefferson when he was being investigated and eventually convicted of his crimes.

Between New York City and Chicago, New Orleans and Louisiana might just lose the title of having some of the most stupid voters in America!

Congratulations to New York City's democratic idiots!!!

Once again... CONGRATULATIONS AND A BIG THANK YOU to New York City (And Chicago)!!!

Lenny Vasbinder

WOOOO HOOOOOO!!!! Tea Party Backed Conservative Candidates Kicked The RINO-Republican's Butts Last Night!!!

Once again, America's REAL Republicans and many Independents came out and voted in droves and threw out the RINO's (Republicans In Name Only) that voted with Obama (and also with President Bush and the democrat controlled Congress since 2006) on some of the wasteful big government tax and spend legislation like all of the various bailouts near the end of 2008, then Obama's TRILLION dollar spendulus package, then the multi-TRILLION dollar ObamaCare and all of the other government take-over's of various industries from the insurance and banking industry to the auto industry to Wall Street, etc... and the other legislation that Obama and his minions want to pass to crush America, like Cap & Trade, forced unionization, raising taxes, deficit spending out the wazoo and an ever rising national debt that will bankrupt our children and grand-children for decades to come.

Just to remind you, below is a list of the end of 2008 bailouts that were done while President Bush was still in office... and it has only gotten much worse since Obama took over since we all know he's a socialist and thinks the government should own everything (as long as he's the dictator-in-chief!). ;-)

I only wish we could throw Senator Mary, Mary, Quite Contrary Landrieu out of office before the end of her term!!!

(SNIP)
● Bear Stearns 2008 JP Morgan Chase and the federal government bailed out Bear Stearns when the financial giant neared collapse. JP Morgan purchased Bear Stearns for $236 million; the Federal Reserve provided a $30 billion credit line to ensure the sale could move forward. $30 billion


● Fannie Mae / Freddie Mac 2008 On Sep. 7, 2008, Fannie and Freddie were essentially nationalized: placed under the conservatorship of the Federal Housing Finance Agency. Under the terms of the rescue, the Treasury has invested billions to cover the companies' losses. Initially, Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson put a ceiling of $100 billion for investments in each company. In February, Tim Geithner raised it to $200 billion. The money was authorized by the Housing and Economic Recovery Act of 2008. $400 billion

● American International Group (A.I.G.) 2008 On four separate occasions, the government has offered aid to AIG to keep it from collapsing, rising from an initial $85 billion credit line from the Federal Reserve to a combined $180 billion effort between the Treasury ($70 billion) and Fed ($110 billion). ($40 billion of the Treasury’s commitment is also included in the TARP total.) $180 billion

● Auto Industry 2008 In late September 2008, Congress approved a more than $630 billion spending bill, which included a measure for $25 billion in loans to the auto industry. These low-interest loans are intended to aid the industry in its push to build more fuel-efficient, environmentally-friendly vehicles. The Detroit 3 -- General Motors, Ford and Chrysler -- will be the primary beneficiaries. $25 billion

● Troubled Asset Relief Program 2008 In October 2008, Congress passed the Emergency Economic Stabilization Act, which authorized the Treasury Department to spend $700 billion to combat the financial crisis. Treasury has been doling out the money via an alphabet soup of different programs. Here’s our running tally of companies getting TARP funds. $700 billion

● Citigroup 2008 Citigroup received a $25 billion investment through the TARP in October and another $20 billion in November. (That $45 billion is also included in the TARP total.) Additional aid has come in the form of government guarantees to limit losses from a $301 billion pool of toxic assets. In addition to the Treasury's $5 billion commitment, the FDIC has committed $10 billion and the Federal Reserve up to about $220 billion. $280 billion

● Bank of America 2009 Bank of America has received $45 billion through the TARP, which includes $10 billion originally meant for Merrill Lynch. (That $45 billion is also included in the TARP total.) In addition, the government has made guarantees to limit losses from a $118 billion pool of troubled assets. In addition to the Treasury's $7.5 billion commitment, the FDIC has committed $2.5 billion and the Federal Reserve up to $87.2 billion. $142.2 billion

New Job Creation By Obama Administration

FIRST LADY CREATES NEW JOBS!!!!! For those unbelievers out there. Obama HAS created new jobs.

First Lady requires more than twenty attendants
By Dr. Paul L. Williams

By the staff of thelastcrusade.org

Update: First Lady Now Requires 26 Servants

"The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don't do anything about it" -Albert Einstein

"In my own life, in my own small way, I have tried to give back to this country that has given me so much," she said. "See, that's why I left a job at a big law firm for a career in public service," Michelle Obama

No, Michele Obama does not get paid to serve as the First Lady and she doesn't perform any official duties. But this hasn't deterred her from hiring an unprecedented number of staffers to cater to her every whim and to satisfy her every request in the midst of the Great Recession. Just think Mary Lincoln was taken to task for purchasing china for the White House during the Civil War. And Mamie Eisenhower had to shell out the salary for her personal secretary.

How things have changed! If you're one of the tens of millions of Americans facing certain destitution, earning less than subsistence wages stocking the shelves at Wal-Mart or serving up McDonald cheeseburgers, prepare to scream and then come to realize that the benefit package for these servants of Miz Michele are the same as members of the national security and defense departments and the bill for these assorted lackeys is paid by John Q. Public:

1. $172,2000 - Sher, Susan (CHIEF OF STAFF)
2. $140,000 - Frye, Jocelyn C. (DEPUTY ASSISTANT TO THE PRESIDENT AND DIRECTOR OF POLICY AND PROJECTS FOR THE FIRST LADY)
3. $113,000 - Rogers, Desiree G. (SPECIAL ASSISTANT TO THE PRESIDENT AND WHITE HOUSE SOCIAL SECRETARY)

Joke - Lion Tamer

Two unemployed guys are talking. One says, "I'm going to become a lion tamer."

The other replies, "That's crazy, you don't know nothing about no lion taming."

"Yes I do!"

"Well, OK, answer me this. When one of those lions comes at you all roaring and biting, what you gonna do?"

"Well, then I take that big chair they all carry, and I stick it in his face until he backs down."

"Well, what if the lion takes that big paw, and hooks the chair with them big claws, and throws that chair out of the cage? What do you do then?"

"Well, then I takes that whip they all carry, and I whip him and whip him until he backs down."

"Well, what if that lion bites that whip with his big teeth, and bites it in two? What you gonna do then?"

"Well, then I take that gun they all carry, and I shoot him."

"Well, what if that gun doesn't work? What will you do then?"

"Well, then I pick up some of the crap that's on the bottom of the cage, and I throw it in his eyes, and I run out of the cage."

"Well, what if there ain't no crap in the bottom of the cage? What you gonna do then?"

"Well, that's dumb. Cause if that lion comes at me, and he throws the chair out of the cage, and he bites the whip in two, and my gun don't work, there's going to be some crap on the bottom of that cage, you can bet on that."

SAVE THE LIGHT BULB!!!

I was just reading this RedState.com news item, http://www.redstate.com/erick/2010/09/04/save-the-light-bulb/, and I have to agree that one of the first things the Republicans should do, when they take over Congress in November, is SAVE THE LIGHT BULB!!! 

AND THEN CUT THEIR OWN SPENDING DRASTICALLY AND CUT TAXES EVEN MORE DRASTICALLY... but I've already covered that in many other blogs... now back to SAVE THE LIGHT BULB!!!

Did you know that the Democrats have outlawed the incandescent light bulb starting in 2014?  I realize it has been reported before, like in this USAToday.com article back in 2007 after the Democrats passed this NUTTY legislation, http://www.usatoday.com/money/industries/energy/environment/2007-12-16-light-bulbs_N.htm, and I know that Glenn Beck has done at least one story about the CFL's (Compact Fluorescent Light bulb) on his Fox News Channel TV show but I'm not sure that it completely sunk in that in only two-plus years, the incandescent light bulb will be outlawed.

Does this mean that the OLD Centennial Light bulb, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Centennial_Light, that has been burning for over 109 years will have to be turned off and destroyed? 

Does this make Thomas Edison an outlaw for having invented* the incandescent light bulb?  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Incandescent_light_bulb 

Will Thomas Edison join Jesse James, Billy The Kid, Ma Barker, Bonnie & Clyde and all of the other famous outlaws???  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Outlaw#American_Western, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ma_Barkerhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bonnie_and_Clyde.

Well, hopefully we'll never find out since I just know that the Republicans will SAVE THE LIGHT BULB in 2011... after their phenomenal win in November 2010.

Please God, let it happen!

DickMorris.com - A Couple Of Good Posts That All Should Read - "Why We Need To Let States Go Broke" AND "A Contract With America For 2010"

WHY WE NEED TO LET STATES GO BROKE

By DICK MORRIS & EILEEN MCGANN
Published in the New York Post on August 10, 2010

Federal Band-Aids won't cover the fiscal problems of such states as New York, California, Michigan and Connecticut forever. State bankruptcy and fundamental restructuring of state and local finance -- and labor relations -- is at hand.

Take Connecticut. In the current fiscal year, $2 billion in federal subsidies have helped tide it over the recession -- a hefty share of its $15 billion budget. But these infusions are one-shot grants, renewed only if Congress acts affirmatively to do so. Other states depend on similar manifestations of federal largess.

In Washington, the House is set to pass a $26 billion aid package this week -- fresh federal aid amounting to about 2 percent of state and local spending. But if the Republicans win control of Congress this fall, it is hard to see any legislative willingness to renew these subsidies.

Instead, GOP lawmakers will point to the examples of New Jersey, Virginia and Indiana -- where conservative governors have slashed spending to avoid tax hikes. In Virginia, Gov. Bob McDonnell has reduced spending to pre-2006 levels.

If Congress fails to renew its subsidies, the more profligate states will face cash shortfalls in the current fiscal year. They'll threaten school closures, prison releases and all manner of mayhem if their subsidies aren't renewed. But the Republicans in Washington are likely to refuse -- asking why the responsible states should bail out the spendthrifts in Albany, Sacramento, Lansing and Hartford.

At that point, the bond markets will start eyeing state (and local) balance sheets more critically -- demanding higher rates or even refusing to lend. California won't be the only one trying to get by on IOUs.

But beyond this tale of woe lies a golden opportunity to reform state governments and redress the imbalance of power between elected officials and public-employee unions.

Absent endless federal subsidies, states will simply no longer be able to afford to give the unions everything that they want. And governors -- many of them newly elected Republicans -- will realize that they can't even afford to honor agreements their big-spending predecessors OK'd.

The GOP Congress should then amend the federal bankruptcy law to provide for a way -- now absent -- for states to declare bankruptcy. (Municipalities can do so under current law, but states have no such relief.)

Here's the key: The reforms must require that states abrogate their public-employee union agreements in the bankruptcy process, just as private corporations like Delta and Chrysler have done. The wage hikes, the work rules, the pension plans all go out the window.

Few states will have the starch to cut benefits for those now receiving them. But most will cut pensions for current workers and all will slice them for future employees. Even the threat will be a powerful bargaining tool.

And beyond the fiscal adjustments, the power of the municipal- and public-employee unions will be broken.

Voters throughout America will loudly applaud if Congress tells the profligate states, "Work it out on your own. Don't look to us for a bailout."

President Obama could veto the bankruptcy reforms -- but a Republican Congress need do nothing to assist states in their plight until he relents. All of the political and financial leverage will be on Congress' side.

The result could be the greatest revolution in state and local governance since public-employee unions came on the scene. The public and the voters would get their local governments back, and the grip of public unions will be weakened. It would be the state and local equivalent of President Ronald Reagan's tough stand against the air-traffic controllers' strike.

Politically, the unions that fund and fuel the Democratic Party would be emasculated, dramatically shifting the national balance of power.

Former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher's prediction about socialism will have come true for America's states: "Sooner or later, they run out of other peoples' money."

A CONTRACT WITH AMERICA FOR 2010

By DICK MORRIS

Published on TheHill.com on August 9, 2010

My observations from the campaign trail are that this year's elections will be a total and complete disaster for the Democratic Party. In fact, it will amount to the obliteration of an entire generation of Democratic officeholders. It will become very rare to find a youngish baby boomer white Democrat in elective office in the United States. I believe that almost half of the white Democratic congressmen who are seeking reelection will lose!

A wipeout of this magnitude cannot be explained, alone, by Obama's ratings or his policies. He has fallen sharply since he took office, but even ratings in the 40s do not explain this type of result. It is increasingly obvious that Congress has earned much of this disaster by itself, quite unrelated to Obama. The vision of the deal-making that accompanied healthcare was too disgusting for the average American to stomach. And now the failure of the Congress to expel Reps. Charles Rangel (D-N.Y.) and Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) underscores its inability to police itself.

RED SKY IN THE MORNING: CIC agents thought they were communist spies. The Philippine constabulary just wanted them dead. Two men made it out alive - one didn't. But Republicans need to remember that when they lost the House in 2006, about 5 percent of their incumbents were under indictment, convicted or in prison, or resigned. Washington has always been the crime capital of America, but the House of Representatives was its highest crime-rate neighborhood!

Republicans should embrace specific ethical reforms, which they should showcase in their campaign advertising in 2010. These positive ads will do as much as any good negative to underscore the difference between a Republican challenger and a Democratic incumbent.

The reforms should include:

• The establishment of an office of special prosecutor for Congress, with its head appointed by the chief justice of the U.S. Supreme Court for a fixed term. The office should have subpoena power, a well-funded staff and the right to convene grand juries and issue indictments. Self-policing by ethics committees obviously does not work.

• All earmarking should be banned. Congress cannot be trusted with this power.

• A ban on spouses of members of Congress serving on boards or accepting employment by any company or organization that receives federal funds. In cases like Mrs. Chris Dodd and Mrs. Evan Bayh, corporate board employment was a way for special interests to influence their husbands and pad the family checkbook.

• A ban on families of members of Congress serving as lobbyists.

• No free travel, whether sponsored by foundations or lobbyists. Only government trips on official business -- real business -- should be allowed.

• Full disclosure of the precise amounts of members' net worth, debts, investments and holdings, including home mortgages.

• Full publication, online, of all committee votes.

• No student loan repayments for congressional staffers.

• A five-year ban on lobbying for members of Congress or their staffs after leaving office. The ban should also apply to employment by a company that performs lobbying services.

• If a senator or congressman is absent more than 10 percent of the time for reasons other than illness -- including running for president -- his pay should be docked proportionately.

• Term limits for congressional staffers. No staff member of Congress should be permitted to serve in a job that pays above $100,000 a year for more than eight years. If we can't get term limits for Congress, let's at least clean out the professional staffers!

A smart candidate in 2010 will take elements of these proposals -- particularly the special prosecutor -- and put them in his or her campaign ads. Cashing in on Obama's unpopularity and his failed agenda is only half the battle. Capitalizing on the dismal state of congressional ethics is the other part!

Jokes - The Little Boy Writes God AND God's Sense Of Humor

The Little Boy Writes God

A Little boy wanted $100.00 very badly and prayed for weeks, but nothing happened. Then he decided to write God a letter requesting the $100.00.

When the postal authorities received the letter to God, USA, they decided to send it to President Obama.

The president was so amused that he instructed his secretary to send the little boy a $5.00 bill.

President Obama thought this would appear to be a lot of money to a little boy.

The little boy was delighted with the $5.00 bill and sat down to write a thank-you note to God, which read:

Dear God:

Thank you very much for sending the money. However, I noticed that for some reason you sent it through Washington, D.C. and those assholes took $95.00 in taxes!

-----------

God's Sense Of Humor

God was missing for six days. Eventually, Michael, the archangel, found him resting on the seventh day.

He inquired, "Where have you been?"

God smiled deeply and proudly pointed downwards through the clouds, "Look, Michael. Look what I've made."

Archangel Michael looked puzzled, and said, "What is it?"

"It's a planet," replied God, and I've put life on it.. I'm going to call it Earth and it's going to be a place to test Balance."

"Balance?" inquired Michael, "I'm still confused."

God explained, pointing to different parts of earth. "For example, northern Europe will be a place of great opportunity and wealth, while southern Europe is going to be poor. Over here I've placed a continent of white people, and over there is a continent of black people. Balance in all things."

God continued pointing to different countries. "This one will be extremely hot, while this one will be very cold and covered in ice."

The Archangel, impressed by God's work, pointed to a land area & said, "What's that?"

"That's the State of Texas, the most glorious place on earth. There are beautiful rivers, mountains, streams, lakes, forests, hills, beaches and plains.

The people from the State of Texas are going to be handsome, modest, intelligent, humorous, and they are going to travel the world. They will be extremely sociable, hardworking, high achieving, carriers of peace, and producers of good things."

Michael gasped in wonder and admiration, but then asked, "But what about balance, God? You said there would be balance."

God smiled, "There's Washington DC. Wait till you see the idiots I put there."

Obama Administration Gives Illegal Aliens Backdoor Amnesty -- Redstate.com AND Some Illegal Alien Cartoons That I Just Received Via Email

(Read the article on Redstate.com for more info... Scroll down for Illegal Immigration cartoons)
Obama admin gives illegal aliens backdoor amnesty

Posted by Dan Spencer (Profile)
Wednesday, August 25th at 1:30PM EDT

The so-called backdoor amnesty for illegal aliens is no longer merely another bad idea from the Obama administration. According to the Houston Chronicle, the Department of Homeland Security is trying to dismiss thousands of deportation cases against “suspected illegal immigrants.”

The Chronicle reports the Obama amnesty effort began “about a month ago” in Houston, where the Department of Homeland Security now has five attorneys working full-time on this backdoor amnesty for illegal aliens. The amnesty program is expected to be rolled out nationwide soon.

Senator John Cornyn blasted the Obama amnesty:

This situation is just another side effect of President Obama’s failure to deliver on his campaign promise to make immigration reform a priority in his first year. Until he does, state and local authorities are left with no choice but to pick up the slack for prosecuting and detaining criminal aliens.

Earlier this year, President Obama affirmed his support for the Schumer/Graham immigration legislation outline.

Obama ran for president promising secure borders, increased number of legal immigrants, to remove incentives for illegal immigration, and to allow undocumented immigrants who are in good standing to pay a fine, learn English, and go to the back of the line for the opportunity to become citizens.

President Obama promised to make immigration reform a top priority of the first year of his presidency. When Obama backed away from that promise, Politifact rated his promise stalled.  (LV adds... so much for Politifact being unbiased as they claim to be... seems they're just another left leaning media outlet.)

As I have said before, Amnesty for illegal, whether it is backdoor or contained in a comprehensive reform bill, sends a simple message - get into the United States anyway you can because eventually you will be legalized. That message will be heard loud and clear just as it was with the adoption of the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986 (”IRCA”). That “immigration reform” legalized four million illegal aliens. IRCA was a monumental failure. Twenty-odd years later there millions of new illegal aliens to legalize.
