Mississipi, tornado, Louisiana oilspill, show Catastrophic lack of leadership by Obama administration

In the wake of two gigantic disasters, one natural, the other man made, has Barack Obama shown a lack of leadership? My response to that question would be a resounding YES!!

First lets take a look at the devastating tornado that tore through Mississippi last Sunday, where were the calls for Obama to tour the afflicted area? What has Fema's response been in the wake of one of the worst tornadoes in U.S. history? Who knows neither the major media or the president have said much about it.

CNN reported: "President Obama has "been briefed on the tragedy in Mississippi and the situation is being followed by the White House," Obama spokesman Bill Burton said".

This is all I could find about the Whitehouse's response to this mind bogglingly big tornado. If Bush were still president,if he hadn't been on the scene the next day, he would have been blasted for being callous and insensitive to the human suffering that is occurring in Yazoo City and other communities hit by this monster storm.

Barack had a chance to show he had more on the ball than Bush. He could have immediately flew to Mississippi to personally assess the damage. He could have ordered Fema onto the ground but he didn't. Last I read was a quote from Governor Barbour saying that Fema was ready if invited in.

Bush was roundly criticised for tarrying in the aftermath of Katrina. Where are all those critics now? Speaking of Katrina lets take a look at Obama's response to the huge oil spill in Louisiana.

For the first few days, we were told by a Coast Gaurd official, that they had cameras keeping an eye on the well head and no oil was leaking out.

Then it began to be apparent that oil was leaking and we were told it was a mere few hundred gallons a day. Now its in the hundreds of thousands. It has taken days for this administration to even come to grips with the fact that there is an oil spill. Obama dwadled and now we have a giant oil slick making landfall on American soil! This is truly becoming Obama's Katrina.

Laura Ingraham on her radio show today referred to the response by this white House to the spill in the Gulf as a "c.y.a. mentality". I think that sums it up perfectly. Rather than seek solutions to the problem the prez and all his lacky's seem to be trying to limit the political dmage this could cause him, and deflect criticism by the hard left of his enviromental policies.

Hey maybe Barack is even showing his racist side-after all he is half white ergo he must be half racist-Bush was called racist for supposedly ignoring the plight of blacks in New Orleans. Therefore Barack must be racist for ignoring the plight of white folks living along the coast.

Clearly-in my opinion- these twin disasters- point up a catastrophic lack of leadership by this pretender in the White House!

To our Soldiers,Sailors,Airman and Marines: Thank You!!

I found the video above at Stand by I love the men and women of our armed forces. I may rail against the abuses I perceive coming from Washington but you won't here me complain against our awesome people in uniform. Every day they get up put on their uniforms and guarantee to me and you the freedom we take for granted.

They however don't take it for granted. These young ,middleage, and even older heroes know the pain, blood and sacrifice that it takes to maintain our freedom. Freedom is one of God's greatest gifts to man and it takes blood, courage, and sacrifice to protect that freedom against the forces of evil in the world that lust to destroy our freedom. Our brave and committed service members give up their own freedom and give of themselves so that we can criticize, pontificate, and sometimes even make fools of ourselves.

Take time to watch this great video and thank God these people have the stuff it takes to stand tall for freedom!

A tale of two countries


"The American flag stands for hatred, warmongering, and imperialism."

"Our free-market system is responsible for killing and oppressing millions of people." From "Why The Left Hates America click here to learn more

This disturbing quote pretty much sums up the problem we have in America today. There are a large number of people in academia, the media, politics and everyday life who believe that America is to blame for the problems in this world today.

The quote above comes from one Daniel Flynn the author of "Why The Left Hates America".
Mr. Flynn goes on to ask the question "Is America really that bad?" and answers this question with the following..."It is if you accept the lies and propaganda from the anti-American Left in our own country. This dismal, distorted view of the greatest, freest nation in history comes from a Left who would rather idolize Ho Chi Minh and Fidel Castro than honor George Washington and Thomas Jefferson, who burn down businesses and destroy property to protest free markets, and who fight alongside radical terrorists rather than against them".

Here is the crux of our current trouble. One half of the people believe in the promise of America, the Constitution, and a democratic republican form of government that has done more to secure human freedom than any system in history. The other half want to destroy that system and start over again, preferably in a Marxist Leninist model!

Recently we have heard and,since today is the anniversary of the horrible attack against America in Oklahoma city,are going to here a lot about the dangers of violence from the far right!! Yet the left has been protesting violently against this country for years and their sympathizers in the mainstream media have rarely been critical of their actions. Indeed most often these left wing domestic terrorists have been held up by the media as heroes!!

I'm reminded of the lead up to the most recent Iraq war. The left took to the streets in droves often being quite strident in their denunciations of America, the war, and George Bush. These same folks openly called for the death of the President and even likened him to Hitler. And what was the response of media reporters at the time? Well some of them donned big smiles and marched in solidarity with these often anti-American, and sometimes violent leftist protesters.

Contrast this with the way ordinary, hardworking, rank and file Americans at tea party and pro gun protests have been portrayed by the neo marxists in the media and congress. No smiling journalists joining the protest here. Oh no these folks who love America,and are concerned for their freedom, are portrayed as enemies of the state who need to be silenced and intimidated into submission by the left.

We truly have become a house divided. A house divided by love for America, the Constitution, and individual freedom and a deep seated hatred of all things American and especially our heritage, traditions, and values.

Consider this quote..."a Left who would rather idolize Ho Chi Minh and Fidel Castro than honor George Washington and Thomas Jefferson, who burn down businesses and destroy property to protest free markets, and who fight alongside radical terrorists rather than against them.

For me this is the best illustration of my point. We have seen communist murderers like Che Guevara, Ho-Chi Mihn and Mao Tsi Tung portrayed as heroes by those on the not so extreme left. Most recently by displays of Che posters in Obama campaign headquarters and by members of the current White House staff who have claimed Mao as a  personal hero.

So I ask who are the real threat to America Americans who love this nation,  the Constitution, and the freedoms that made this country great or the leaders of the left who despise everything this country stands for?

Tea Partay America!! or What the hell is wrong with liberals

April 15 2010. Tax day in America and low and behold thousands, nay, tens of thousands of "Conservative" Americans took to the streets to vent their frustration with what many of us perceive as a government that has overstepped the boundaries of the Constitution, and ,is threatening the liberties that Americans have always held as sacred.

This is in a long standing tradition of American politics that dates back to the founding of the nation. Americans have, historically speaking, never been afraid to say what's on their mind.

During both Bush administrations, and especially in W's term, the left vented their anger against Bush and his policies in demonstration after demonstration across this land. At the time I always said I didn't agree with them but I respected their right to do it, and, would be willing to fight to allow them that right.

But what has been the response from the left to the Tea Party protesters. Well Tea Party'ers have been called terrorists, racists, and lord knows what ever else. For Gods sake CNN is even wringing it's hands wondering if so called limits on free speech have been breached! Where oh where was all the concern when the Libs were foaming at the mouth over Bush. Where was the concern when they openly called for the assassination of the President.

If today's conservative protesters were calling for the same outcome for Obama they would be arrested faster than you can say what? Furthermore there is the recurring drumbeat in the media that the Tea Party folk are filled with racism and hatred. Just yesterday I heard some person from California in a news report saying that what lies beneath the strong anti-government rhetoric is really latent racism, and hatred.

What a bunch of baloney. What lies beneath is a large portion of the American population that is angry at what they see as a government that has run amok!! These are people who still believe in the transcendent values of individual freedom, liberty, and responsibility, that the founders envisioned, and which have made this country the best place on the face of the Earth to live.

For years now leftist in our Universities, media, schools and elsewhere have been attacking these timeless virtues and they are astonished that their message has had so little effect on a large segment of the American populace.

What it all boils down to is that Libs believe in free speech for themselves, but conservative, or anyone else for that matter, who disagree with them, need to be silenced. That my friend is what is wrong with liberals. They are adherents to an orthodox religion and cannot brook ANY opposition to that orthodoxy!!!

As for me I say TEA PARTAY America!!! Let the new Conservative revolution begin!! AND where does it begin? In the hearts and minds of people who love freedom, and at the ballot box this November. No this will NOT be a violent revolution. But a revolution nonetheless it will be!!

See Ya! Queen Nancy and Prince Harry Reid!!
