Ain't this cute? http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_KOv0cfA0VSg/TCtLUbIgpZI/AAAAAAAAAC4/bMe132egV4k/S220/shaw.jpg
I may not have all the answers but I know what I want and I want to say how I feel. But, I can be socially active AND voice my opinion on a site, and I think that THIS is the site to voice it. . I think it is our Constitutional duty to voice our opinions. I didn't say I had all the answers, but I am not blaming anyone who isn’t here anymore as the Liberals are blaming George Bush for all of Obama’s failures. Obama is the man now, and he is responsible for all of our woes for the past 6 ½ years. So he has to answer to all the problems we have..That being said, let me say this. Conservatives are called many names by the left and the uninformed. The favorites are "Nazi," "fascist," "racist," "bigot," "alarmist," "neo-con," "war mongers," “Tea-baggers,” "homophobe" “TeePublicans” etc.: you name it, we've been called it. I take those names in stride knowing full well that the historical knowledge necessary to use big words like "Nazi" and "fascist" are beyond the mental capabilities of 97.4% of libs. When they put down their coloring books and crayons, and turn off CNN, Rachel Maddow. or The Teletubbies, they tend to whine and whine and whine, get in touch with their feelings, eat tofu, and yell "it's not fair!" for hours on end. After all that hard work, they don't have a lot of time left to read and think and analyze -- not that they'd have the inclination to that in the first place, of course.
Real conservatives, conservatives who believe in the constitution who believe in what the Founding Fathers believed in, believe that we the people must be protected from government. Hence, our Constitution has ten enumerated amendments that do just that: put limits on what the government cannot do to it's citizens. The Bill of Rights*, therefore, should prevent the government from interfering in my life, as long as I am law-abiding and I do not interfere with someone else's rights. Who believe that what we work hard and honest ly for we should keep and or do with it whatever we want too. It belongs to us, and not the Lazy Dude who only wants the Free-Stuff. Those same rights should be granted to businesses, as well.
A couple of days ago, a news story appeared that explained that the city of New York was banning trans-fats in the cooked food prepared in the 25,000+ eating establishments in the city. For those of you who do not know, trans-fats are the substances in fried foods that make you fat, cause high cholesterol, exacerbate global warming and promote Islamic terrorism. I read the story with interest because of something that I warned people about many years ago.First, I couldn't care less what Michelle Obama thinks.
Second, NO government should have the right to tell us what we can or can't eat, including our children!LONG ago, we were given something called PARENTS...who are to act as 'government' to THEIR children.Michelle should concentrate on her own kids and leave ours alone. We parents know our kids best.While Michelle is at it, she ought to practice what she preaches, because if she looks in a mirror she'll find she could stand to shed a few pounds herself! The best she can do is be an example in her own looks and eating habits!I am a smoker. I smoke cigarettes and cigars. Yes, yes, I know. They are bad for me. They cause cancer, heart disease, and storms on Jupiter. Thanks for your concern, now mind your own business. BUT, it is my choice to do this, regardless of whether it is stupid or not. That, in essence, is the heart of what America is should be. I choose to smoke. In 1998, when the former Administration (in a move that would make Tony Soprano proud) began extorting money from the tobacco companies -- legal, highly regulated, tax-paying businesses -- I told anyone who would listen that if this blackmail was allowed to happen, anything the liberals wanted to regulate was fair game: fatty burgers, french fries, coffee, donuts. Because, of course, as we are all well aware, liberals know better than we do about what's good for us. "Choice" is something liberals will give you only if it's their choice. It's OK to give the "choice" to kill unborn babies, but don't you fucking dare light that cigarette! Predictably, I was called an "alarmist," among other things, and I was told that it was us, the eeeeeevvvvil right-wingers, who wanted to control the lives of Americans. As I've written before, liberals may have the monopoly on stupidity, but they don't have a grasp on irony.Next it will be a $500 fine for anyone caught eating more than three meals a day. Or puttong salt on our eggs.So now, New York City is attacking french fries, donuts, burgers, large soda’s anything containing trans-fats. Why? Well they say it's for health reasons, because "they care," but I know better. Just as in the cigarette case, it's nothing but a cheap money-grab. Filthy greed. You know, what we conservatives are constantly accused of being. Today it's fines leveled against restaurants, tomorrow they'll tax the fatty foods. The food products will be heavily regulated, the flavor excised, and they'll be heavily taxed to boot. A few things before I write, just so that I don’t get ridiculed for being a crazy liberal: I’’m not, by any means, a liberal, and I agree that the trans-fat thing is ridiculous and that it’’s not going to do anything to curb obesity anyway. My father holds stock in Philip Morris, and yes, that class-action lawsuit against tobacco companies was also pretty ridiculous. The fact that these people got away with blaming some companies for their decisions is crazy.
That said, I really, really love smoking bans. I’’m a nonsmoker who’’s prone to colds/subsequent sinus infections, and I absolutely hated coming home from a bar in college (in Chicago pre-smoking ban) and reeking of cigarette smoke and sniffling and sneezing. I moved to northern New Jersey after college and it was SO nice to go out in NYC and not come home smelling like cigarettes. Seriously, that stuff just stuck to every piece of clothing. My hair too. It was awful. And I hated it because I was suffering the consequences of other people’’s choices to smoke. My choices were: a) stay home and have no social life or b) go out with friends and get sick.The President's Missus needs to keep her nose outta the People's business.... Plain and Simple...Here's my message to all of you liberal lifestyle fascists: If it's really bad, then stop being hypocrites and ban them. I know that'll put a stop to the billions that enter your coffers for more mind-control of the masses with socialism and political correctness, but you'll be doing what you know deep-down is the right thing. Let ME make decisions about MYSELF as long as I'm not hurting anyone. Let me drink, let me smoke, let me gamble, et cetera. So in ending, I wish that some one would tell Michelle Obama to stop telling me what to eat and what to drink. Big Brother thinks we are too stupid to think for ourselves. t is NOT the government's job to be doing ANY of this . We have moved a million miles away from the intent of why this country was founded. Obama is a Marxist , it is so clear now. Government runs every aspect of your life. Wake up liberals ,And stop restricting my FREEDOMS... You can't force me to by health care and you can't tell me what I can eat or smoke or drink either. F all of you phony liberals because you are supporting a fascist government that want control..Control of banks , care companies, health care , food , the internet and radio..But you don't see it do you , you fools. See Greece ? we will be there in 2 years. Maybe she thinks we forget her statement that when her hubby was elected was the first time she was proud to be an American. She deserves no place in our children’s lives or the White House.And another thing that BUGS the hell out of me, and it should bug the hell out of you as well, it’s the United Negro college fund! If a white boy wanted to go to college and asked for a college loan, he would be denied because of the color of their skin. That is the very definition of racism. Why is this racist organization allowed to exist? Can you imagine the outrage from the left if there was a college fund for whites only? Actually you don't have to imagine it. Someone tried to set one up, and the supreme court said it was racist. So why is it not racist for blacks to have one? Could someone please explain this? I'm a bit confused. But not really, and I’ll tell you why! Because Racism is alive and well. Blacks are treated special because they have cried for many decades about being shuffled to the rear of the pack. They're not really interested in equality, they want superiority and the upper echelon. They're treated special when it comes to hiring, education, promotions, and they have their own TV network ( BET ). Being black affords one special privileges. What we have is reverse discrimination.It is NOT the government's job to be doing ANY of this. Stop telling us what to do and start cutting your spending.You have no right to tell anyone what to do, where to do it, and how to do it!
thank you Truth Seeker. I admire your passion,which I share and which is why we will keep talking until the rest of the country understands exactly what is happening. I love how liberals want big gov in their lives until they come for them
Very Cute Lisa.
