Dream Team

      Well, she has said "no". My favorite for the Republican nomination for President in 2012, Sarah Palin, has said she is not running. While I am very disappointed, I'll have to move on. I like Michele Bachmann, Newt Gingrich, and Rick Santorum, but I don't think any of them can get the nomination. I liked Rick Perry at first because of the success he has had in Texas creating jobs and the economy, but have now realized that he is very soft on illegal immigration, allowing in-state tuition for children of illegals. That just doesn't fly with me. I love Ron Paul's domestic agenda, but his isolationist Foreign policy really turns me off. We've been down that road twice before and it resulted in WWI and WWII. We don't need to go there again. Mitt Romney is a RINO (Republican in Name Only). He is soft on illegal immigration, the right to life, the Second amendment, government involvement in our lives, and refuses to admit that Romneycare (a state version of Obamacare) has been a huge failure in Massachusetts. I'll mention Jon Huntsman only so far as to say he is a Democrat running with a "R" after his name.
       That brings us to Herman Cain. Boy, is this guy a breath of fresh air. He has never held public office and is a self made man in the private sector. He knows what creates jobs and what doesn't. He knows what is needed to get the economy roaring again. While he may have a little problem dealing with the life of Washington, D.C., because of his inexperience, all he needs to do is to pick the right person for VP. Someone like Newt Gingrich, who has been Speaker of the House and understands how to get an agenda through Congress. Herman Cain reminds me of Ronald Reagan on steroids.
      So, there you have it. My dream team for 2012.


      Wait, as a member of the Tea Party, how can I be supporting a black man for President. I thought I was a racist. Just goes to show you how the Lame Stream Media paints people they don't agree with,  with their demonizing labels. It's what they do best!

Herman Cain - The Issues
999 Economic Plan


Got this from my friend, Paul.   
Can't think of a better analogy. Are you paying attention, America? 


"We are worried about 'the cow' when it is all about the 'Ice Cream.'

The most eye-opening civics lesson I ever had was while teaching third grade this year...

The presidential election was heating up and some of the children showed an interest.
I decided we would have an election for a class president.

We would choose our nominees.. They would make a campaign speech and the class would vote.

To simplify the process, candidates were nominated by other class members.

We discussed what kinds of characteristics these students should have.

We got many nominations and from those, Jamie and Olivia were picked to run for the top spot.

The class had done a great job in their selections. Both candidates were good kids.

I thought Jamie might have an advantage because he got lots of parental support.

I had never seen Olivia's mother.

The day arrived when they were to make their speeches.

Jamie went first.

He had specific ideas about how to make our class a better
Place. He ended by promising to do his very best.
Everyone applauded and he sat down.

Now is was Olivia's turn to speak.
Her speech was concise.  She said, "If you will vote for me, I will give you ice cream."  She sat down.

The class went wild. "Yes! Yes!  We want ice cream."

She surely would say more? She did not have to.
A discussion followed. How did she plan to pay for the ice cream?
She wasn't sure. But no one pursued that question.
They took her at her word.

Would her parents buy it or would the class pay for it...She didn't know.
The class really didn't care. All they were thinking about was ice cream...
Jamie was forgotten.. Olivia won by a landslide.

Every time Barack Obama opened his mouth he offered ice cream and 51.4 % of the people reacted like nine year olds.

They want ice cream.

The other 48.6% percent know they're going to have to feed the cow and clean up the mess."

This is the ice cream Obama promised us!

Remember, the government cannot give anything to anyone that they have not first taken away from someone else.

Did YOU vote for the ice cream?

Are you riding in the wagon, or are you pulling it, because if Obama gets reelected you are going to have pull a lot harder, because there will be a lot more people in the wagon!

BRS - Bureau of Rehabilitation Services

Want a classic example of what's wrong with Government?
        Ever since I was a teenager I have done a lot of hunting and shooting. I also had a job during the mid-70's, at the Uniroyal footwear plant, in Naugatuck, CT, running a Banbury. A Banbury is a machine that mixes batches of rubber at about 500 lbs. per batch. The machines are incredibly loud. I did all this without wearing hearing protection, because for most of that time it was not known that it could damage your hearing. Subsequently, I found out about 10 years ago that I needed hearing aids. I have been through a couple of sets and recently got new ones which cost $3200. The owner of the Hearing Aid business said I could go through BRS and have the government foot the bill for my hearing aids. I felt like she told me I could apply for welfare. Well, it turns out the program is for disabled people under the Americans with Disability Act. Hearing impaired is considered disabled. So I qualify for free hearing aids, paid for by the government.
      Jon, are you not making enough money? Nope, there is no income limit to being able to participate. The only stipulation is that the hearing aids be required for your job, and since I need them to hear "bees" buzzing, mice scratching, and bats fluttering, I qualified. Someone making $1 million a year can get their hearing aids paid for by the government.
      I have always fought against waste in the government. I don't want and I don't need the government providing for me.  I told them no thanks, I'll pay for them myself. If that's known as "putting your money where your mouth is", I'm guilty.
