Is it 2012, yet?

I have been recovering from my surgery, and not writing, as you have noticed. I HAVE been watching a lot of TV, however, and it seems the clicker always seems to click to a news channel (or seven). I tell you, folks, its getting extremely frustrating to me to watch and hear the BS (that’s “bacon sandwich” for those of you who don’t know) that dribbles across the airwaves, constantly.

First, there are the shenanigans from the criminals in the Congress, White House and all things DC. If I make it another day without exploding, I will be surprised.  Solyndra, bailout #3, stock market, jobs bill, Charlie Rangel’s portrait on the wall of the congressional building (at the bargain basement price of 65k0 not eleven months after his censure on eleven counts of misconduct. My, ain’t we got fun!?

Then, we have 9 GOP candidates fighting among themselves (for our entertainment, presumably) and this has to go on HOW much longer?

Oh, and just for an added bonus, there is a school bus sized piece of “space junk”, weighing in at about 6 tons, plummeting to earth sometime this evening.  The sky really IS falling!

It occurs to me that if one is ignorant, being led to slaughter is so much more relaxing….

On a happier note, however, my stitches come out on Monday, AND, I get my new “EARS”! I’m also about 4 pounds from my “ideal” weight.  So I think I’ll just float on those things for another week or so.

The gangsters can destroy the world without me!

Older and Badder

As I lay in my hospital bed, awaiting surgery, I was reading an email from my mother (a long time Democrat). She sent a piece that I thought was very interesting.  I lived most of the things that are mentioned in it (not the icebox, or the hand cranked cars—though I have hand cranked some tractors), and it makes me realize, even more intensely, how much I love this country, and how I refuse to let it go down in the flames of socialism. Please read and enjoy, and by all means, drive, ride or use your walker  to get to the polls on election day 2012 and help the Grey Haired Brigade take this country back and make it the Land of the Free!

Grey-Haired Brigade

They like to refer to us as senior citizens, old fogies, geezers, and in some cases dinosaurs. Some of us are “Baby Boomers” getting ready to retire. Others have been retired for some time. We walk a little slower these days and our eyes and hearing are not what they once were.We have worked hard, raised our children, worshipped our God and grown old together. Yes, we are the ones some refer to as being over the hill, and that is probably true. But before writing us off completely, there are a few things that need to be taken into consideration.

In school we studied English, history, math, and science which enabled us to leadAmericainto the technological age. Most of us remember what outhouses were, many of us with firsthand experience. We remember the days of telephone party-lines, 25 cent gasoline, and milk and ice being delivered to our homes. For those of you who don’t know what an icebox is, today they are electric and referred to as refrigerators. A few even remember when cars were started with a crank. Yes, we lived those days.

We are probably considered old fashioned and out-dated by many. But there are a few things you need to remember before completely writing us off. We won World War II, fought in Korea andViet Nam. We can quote The Pledge of Allegiance, and know where to place our hand while doing so. We wore the uniform of our country with pride and lost many friends on the battlefield. We didn’t fight for the Socialist States ofAmerica, we fought for the “Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave.” We wore different uniforms but carried the same flag. We know the words to the Star Spangled Banner ,America, andAmericathe Beautiful by heart, and you may even see some tears running down our cheeks as we sing. We have lived what many of you have only read about in history books and we feel no obligation to apologize to anyone for America.

Yes, we are old and slow these days but rest assured, we have at least one good fight left in us. We have loved this country, fought for it, and died for it, and now we are going to save it. It is our country and nobody is going to take it away from us. We took oaths to defend America against all enemies, foreign and domestic, and that is an oath we plan to keep. There are those who want to destroy this land we love but, like our founders, there is no way we are going to remain silent.

It was the young people of this nation who elected Obama and the Democratic Congress.

You fell for the “Hope and Change” which in reality was nothing but “Hype and Lies.” You have tasted socialism and seen evil face to face, and have found you don’t like it after all. You make a lot of noise, but most are all too interested in their careers or “Climbing the Social Ladder” to be involved in such mundane things as patriotism and voting. Many of those who fell for the “Great Lie” in 2008 are now having buyer’s remorse. With all the education we gave you, you didn’t have sense enough to see through the lies and instead drank the ‘Kool-Aid.’ Now you’re paying the price and complaining about it. No jobs, lost mortgages, higher taxes, and less freedom. This is what you voted for and this is what you got. We entrusted you with the Torch of Liberty and you traded it for a paycheck and a fancy house.

Well, don’t worry youngsters, the Grey Haired Brigade is here, and in 2012 we are going to take back our nation. We may drive a little slower than you would like but we get where we’re going, and in 2012 we’re going to the polls by the millions. This land does not belong to the man in the White House nor to the likes of Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid. It belongs to “We the People” and “We the People” plan to reclaim our land and our freedom. We hope this time you will do a better job of preserving it and passing it along to our grandchildren. So the next time you have the chance to say the Pledge of Allegiance, Stand up, put your hand over your heart, honor our country, and thank God for the old geezers of the “Grey-Haired Brigade.”

Uhhh…. I forgot.

I have been noticeably absent. My body took a vacation, and my mind took a longer one. I’m back, now. Have some personal issues to deal with (abdominal hernia surgery on Tuesday morning, hopefully the last one… because they are painful as hell to recover from).

However, I have not let the BS (bacon sandwich) get past me.

Like the JOBS report this week.  ZERO growth rate! ZERO!

CNBC reported that “It was the first time since World War II that the economy had precisely net zero jobs created for a month.”

It took the Republican National Committee exactly 94 minutes to coin a new, demeaning title for Barack Obama: President Zero.

Zero

Way to go, President Zero!

In an email to reporters, the R.N.C. took note of the worst job report in nearly a year, saying that there has been “two and a half years of Obamanomics and nothing to show for it.”

The monthly report, which showed a 17,000-job gain among private employers but no growth overall, provides Mr. Obama’s Republican rivals with the perfect opportunity to criticize him as they prepare to gather for another nationally-televised debate next week.

And it gives Mr. Obama an even more gloomy backdrop for the jobs speech he will give to a joint session of Congress next Thursday. In the speech, Mr. Obama is expected to call for a renewed national effort to put people back to work and trim the nation’s deficit.

So what does the administration have to say about all of this?

President Zero’s Labor Secretary Hilda Solis told a cable news anchor this morning: “I do feel like we’re going in the right direction…”

Oh yeah? And exactly WHAT direction is that? Socialism? Marxism? Sharia Law? Or just off the cliff?!?!

And on another note, regarding the STIMULUS and GREEN ENERGY:

House investigators said they have uncovered evidence that White House officials became personally involved in an Energy Department review of a hot-button $535 million loan guarantee to the now-failed California solar company Solyndra.

The allegation surfaced in a letter House Energy Committee Chairman Fred Upton (R-Mich.) sent to the White House Thursday night, saying he planned to accelerate efforts to understand an investment deal that may have left taxpayers out half a billion dollars.

“We have learned from our investigation that White House officials monitored Solyndra’s application and communicated with [Department of Energy] and Office of Management and Budget officials during the course of their review,” the letter says.

Thursday’s letter, which calls on the White House to turn over correspondence between administration officials, Solyndra and its investors, presents the most pointed suggestion that the White House had direct involvement in the financing.

“How did this company, without maybe the best economic plan, all of a sudden get to the head of the line?” Upton told ABC News in an interview this week. “We want to know who made this decision … and we’re not going to stop until we get those answers.”

But will they ever really get those answers. Will they even try?  And if they get the answers, what will the do with them. I think that 90% of the guys in congress are spineless weasels who don’t have the cojones to stand up for what’s RIGHT. They are to worried about pleasing there respective parties, and securing there next campaign monies and seat.

“I’m tired
Lawd I’m so tired….”
