WE ARE GETTING CALLS three or four times a week saying there is something wrong with our credit cards. They want checks to support the local police and now we are getting calls about all this political thing. I think every one of them is a scam, and enough is enough.

IF I WAS TO SAY that the problems pertaining to this nation’s schools (murder, mass murder, sex, total disrespect, the explosion of alternative schools) are directly related to the removal of the Bible and biblical-based principals (respect, restraint, love, obedience), would you consider me a crackpot, naive, uninformed or just ignorant?

WHY DOES PRESIDENT Obama have to leave Washington so often? He takes two to three trips every week. After three years, he has easily spent a billion dollars just to stage his photo ops
delivering messages he could have easily delivered from the White House.

WHY DO LAWMAKERS in Georgia allow animals to ride in the back of pickup trucks? This really baffles me. They seem to have their noses in everyone else’s welfare, but who is concerned about these poor animals? I’ve seen them sliding from side to side in the back of trucks, trying to get their footing, especially when going around bends.

A RANT FOR LAKESIDE High School student in a dark-blue Jeep Laredo. Where did you learn your driving manners? Mirrored sunglasses are obviously distorting your vision.

I FIND IT VERY appealing that with all these Republicans in this red state, no matter how many lies you make up or distort facts about Obama, he will win in November and there is not a thing you can do about it..

WHY IS AMERICA so dirty and filthy? Go to Europe and look at some of the countries over there. They are perfectly beautiful and clean. I think Americans are just lazy. Let’s put down the remote control and get into the sweeping.

OBAMA IS GOING TO be living off of public assistance for the rest of his life. If he is so concerned about the poor, he ought to give all of his income for the rest of the year to the IRS.

I’LL GIVE OBAMA a pat on the back concerning the killing of Osama bin Laden. But the ones who absolutely deserve the credit are the Navy SEALs, military, CIA and others who worked diligently.

How do we justify putting

How do we justify putting half the terrorists on trial at gitmo and releasing the other half on their word that they won't commit any more terroristic acts? i'm sure they wouldn't lie to infidels! Aren't y'all?

What lies

"matter how many lies you make up or distort facts about Obama"

What lies? All you have to do is look at the deficit, the growth rate, the unemployment rate, the number of people who have given up looking for work, the number of people on welfare, and Obamacare......and there ain't a lie in the bunch. Obama is a disaster and if he gets re-elected he will be an uncontrolled disaster.

Update

Steve Crawford updated his story on the Masters Scalpers court cases last night. You might want to read it for a refresher:

Case Dismissed

What do you think about the sheriff's heavy handed abuse of the disorderly conduct ordinance against our visitors?

@IF I WAS TO SAY "that the problems pertaining to this nation’s schools (murder, mass murder, sex, total disrespect, the explosion of alternative schools) are directly related to the removal of the Bible and biblical-based principals (respect, restraint, love, obedience), would you consider me a crackpot, naive, uninformed or just ignorant?"

Actually, I would put this in the category of "CAUSE and EFFECT". This seems to escape the more politically correct observers.

Good morning

Good morning everyone. It's a beautiful day in the neighborhood. I was getting calls everyday trying to sell me something, give me a credit card, asking for donations, and political call and surveys. Now I only answer the phone if I know the caller. If the call is important, they will leave a message.

Happy, I do not answer my phone for a strange number either. I have a device called OOMA that allows me VOIP, so phone bill only runs <5$/ month; but it has other slick features like blacklisting numbers, replaying messages through your computer etc. I just periodically look at the call log via my laptop and blacklist numbers that I am certain are not people or businesses I know. Political calls have all but stopped.

Dichotomy:"Here's one back at ya RA. Gallup poll...registered voters....same time period.......Romney 47 vs. Obama 44"

If history is any indicator, that could be 56-44, because the undecided vote typically goes against the incumbent. Obama is toast.

Only In America

I just couldn't help post this one. God Bless America, it needs it.

Only in America could politicians talk about the greed of the rich
at a $35,000 a plate campaign fund raising event.

2) Only in America could people claim that the government still
discriminates against black Americans when we have a black President,
a black Attorney General, and roughly 18% of the federal workforce is
black. 12% of the population is black.

3) Only in America could we have had the two people most responsible
for our tax code, Timothy Geithner, the head of the Treasury
Department and Charles Rangel who once ran the Ways and Means
Committee, BOTH turn out to be tax cheats who are in favor of higher
taxes.

4) Only in America can we have terrorists kill people in the name of
Allah and have the media primarily react by fretting that Muslims
might be harmed by the backlash.

5) Only in America would we make people who want to legally become
American citizens wait for years in their home countries and pay tens
of thousands of dollars for the privilege while we discuss letting
anyone who sneaks into the country illegally just become American
citizens.

6) Only in America could the people who believe in balancing the
budget and sticking by the country's Constitution be thought of as
"extremists."

7) Only in America could you need to present a driver's license to
cash a check or buy alcohol, but not to vote.

8) Only in America could people demand the government investigate
whether oil companies are gouging the public because the price of gas
went up when the return on equity invested in a major U.S. oil company
(Marathon Oil) is less than half of a company making tennis shoes
(Nike).

9) Only in America could the government collect more tax dollars from
the people than any nation in recorded history, still spend a trillion
dollars more than it has per year for total spending of $7 million PER
MINUTE, and complain that it doesn't have nearly enough money.

10) Only in America could the rich people who pay 86% of all income
taxes be accused of not paying their "fair share" by people who don't
pay any income taxes at all.
