If ever there was a program, the "World's Funniest Videos," one of the top 10 would have to be Prime Minister Chamberlain in the 1930s standing at the London airport holding a paper looking like a Homer Hankey, saying Chancellor Hitler had signed that "piece of paper" not to attack England.
Now, fast forward 70-some years to 2009 where the so-called pro-life Democrats (sounds like an oxymoron) sign on to the Obama-care health bill. What ever happened to Kennedy-care? It was all done in his name because the president was going to sign a "piece of paper" that no tax dollars would pay for abortions.
I believe the prime minister as well as those Democrats know those "pieces of paper" were worthless. Planned Parenthood is looking for a very lucrative future under Obama-care! They've just built three mega killing centers, the biggest cost $16 million, is 28,000 square feet in Houston. It's being called the "largest abortion center in the Western Hemisphere." Take a bow Planned Parenthood. They know they'll get their money back and from where, Obama-care once that "piece of paper" is deemed unconstitutional.
Presidents before have left their marks . This one is leaving scars. I'll let Mr. Jefferson sum up my thoughts. "I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just." Amen.
Solving the gulf oil slick
Giant separators can be used the same way cream is separated from milk on dairy farms. Many boats would have separators. Tanks would have to be installed aboard ship to save the oil.
Following in Rome's footsteps?
There are undoubtedly those in Washington, D.C., who would dearly love to have the American people continue to bury their heads in the sand and leave the government to take complete control of our lives. So far, Washington, D.C., seems to be far ahead of the game and a heavy wet blanket of apathy seems to be settling over this country where people are being told to not watch the news, especially Fox Cable News and that hatemonger Glenn Beck. There is to be no discussion about politics or religion because the news on both sides seem to be on the negative side. Don't get involved because if you do, you are considered to be a fanatic of some sort. As for those people in the tea party what is their real agenda? After all, we have huge union groups protesting, the illegal immigrants can take to the streets anytime. If there is any vandalism who cares but to have citizens of this country to take to the streets is seen in Washington, D.C., as evil. How dare they protest?
Where would this country be today if George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, Paul Revere, Nathan Hale or Daniel Boone had buried their heads in the sand and says who gives a fig about freedom? But of course that is ancient history and as far as our president is concerned, our Constitution is outdated and needs to be changed. Perhaps we all should read about the "Rise and Fall of the Roman Empire" and compare what is happening in this country today. Why? The comparison is downright disturbing. Don't ignore history and its ability to repeat itself. Remember ... "Those who love liberty love others but the love of power is love for oneself!"
