Obama wins Nobel Peace Prize Thursday, October 9, 2009. President Barack Obama’s been in office nine months. He ran on a platform of “Change”- “Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.”Barack Obama. Change the World, that’s why President Obama won the Peace Prize.
The cartoon published in the NY Post depicting two policeman shooting a monkey dead with blood was said to be innocent. It’s was said to be funny if the stimulus bill was crazy and out of control. It wasn’t portrayed that way. Remember that Bush gave away $700 billion with no strings attached (yes, I know, half of it is still unspent). Obama’s bill with revisions by Congress has more stringent strings.
Let’s take the Post at it’s word that all it was doing was making fun of lawmakers that wrote a bill in attempt to save jobs and the American way of life. In this cartoon, the cops shoot the lawmaker!….Twice! The lawmaker is shot dead! This cartoon depicts an assassination. Assassinations are funny…..right?
We may destroy Al Qaeda in the next year or two, but because we are so divided racially, they’ll still win! Attorney General Holder summed up the present state of affairs. “….Though this nation has proudly thought of itself as an ethnic melting pot, in things racial we have always been and continue to be, in too many ways, essentially a nation of cowards.”-Wednesday, February 18, 2009, Attorney General Eric Holder at the Department of Justice African American History Month Program http://www.usdoj.gov/ag/speeches/2009/ag-speech-090218.html
“You knew this was coming, didn’t you? Yes, the makers of TheSockObama™, called on making a racist doll, have boldly declared that, why, there’s no possible way they meant that as racist, and how could you think such a thing?”

In Florida , an atheist created a case against the upcoming Easter and Passover holy days. He hired an attorney to bring a discrimination case against Christians, Jews and observances of their holy days. The argument was that it was unfair that atheists had no such recognized days. The case was brought before a judge. After listening to the passionate presentation by the lawyer, the judge banged his gavel declaring,”Case dismissed!”
The lawyer immediately stood objecting to the ruling saying, “Your honor, how can you possibly dismiss this case? The Christians have Christmas, Easter and others. The Jews have Passover, Yom Kippur and Hanukkah, yet my client and all other atheists have no such holidays.”
The judge leaned forward in his chair saying, “But you do. Your client, counsel, is woefully ignorant.”
The lawyer said, “Your Honor, we are unaware of any special observance or holiday for atheists.”
The judge said, “The calendar says April 1st is April Fools Day. Psalm 14:1 states, ‘The fool says in his heart, there is no God..’ Thus, it is the opinion of this court, that if your client says there is no God, then he is a fool. Therefore, April 1st is his day. Court is adjourned.
Military families in your community may need your help or they could fall through the cracks. There is an increase in suicide and abuse. There are so many stories in the news, I am not going to repeat them here. War changes people. We are not a war-like people. War came to us at Pearl Harbor and 9/11!
The Army learned notheing from Viet Nam. Got to take care of the troops after they get home. Too many flash backs, and bad experiences. Killing people and seeing dead bodies effects normal people.
If you see a person/family in trouble – do something!
