[updated] 06.01.2010]: Wrong Directions of Government... emails I've received recently...
Have you looked at your ratings lately? Or those of Congress?
Having already downed a few power drinks, she turns around, faces him, looks him straight in the eye and says, "Listen here good looking, I screw anybody, anytime, anywhere, your place, my place, in the car, front door, back door, on the ground, standing up, sitting down, naked or with clothes on, it doesn't matter to me. I just love it."
Eyes now wide with interest, he responds, "No kidding I'm in Congress too. What state are you from?"
QUOTE OF THE CENTURY... MAYBE EVEN THE MILLENIUM
Some people have the vocabulary to sum up things in a way you can understand them. This quote came from the Czech Republic. Someone over there has it figured out.
"The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president."
FOR THOSE OF YOU ON THE "CONSERVATIVE" SIDE OF THE FENCE, READ THIS AND
LEARN TO UNDERSTAND YOUR FEELINGS BETTER THAN EVER.
FOR THOSE OF YOU NOT ON THE "CONSERVATIVE" SIDE OF THE FENCE, PLEASE READ
AND LEARN A DIFFERENT VIEWPOINT.
Wherever you stand, please take the time to read this;
....it ought to scare the pants off you!
We know Dick Lamm as the former Governor of Colorado. In that context his thoughts are particularly poignant. Last week there was an
immigration overpopulation conference in Washington, DC, filled to capacity by many of America's finest minds and leaders. A brilliant college professor by the name of Victor Hansen Davis talked about his latest book, "Mexifornia," explaining how immigration - both legal and illegal was destroying the entire state of California. He said it would march across the country until it destroyed all vestiges of The American Dream.
Moments later, former Colorado Governor Richard D. Lamm stood up and gave a stunning speech on how to destroy America. The audience sat spellbound as he described eight methods for the destruction of the United States. He said, "If you believe that America is too smug, too self-satisfied, too rich, then let's destroy America. It is not that hard to do. No nation in history has survived the ravages of time. Arnold Toynbee observed that all great civilizations rise and fall and that 'An autopsy of history would show that all great nations commit suicide.'"
"Here is how they do it," Lamm said: "FIRST, to destroy America, turn America into a bilingual or multi-lingual and bicultural country."
History shows that no nation can survive the tension, conflict, and antagonism of two or more competing languages and cultures. It is a blessing for an individual to be bilingual; however, it is a curse for a society to be bilingual. The historical scholar, Seymour Lipset, put it this way: "The histories of bilingual and bicultural societies that do not assimilate are histories of turmoil, tension, and tragedy." Canada, Belgium, Malaysia, and Lebanon all face crises of national existence in which minorities press for autonomy, if not independence. Pakistan and Cyprus have divided. Nigeria suppressed an ethnic rebellion. France faces difficulties with Basques, Bretons, and Corsicans."
Lamm went on: SECOND, to destroy America, "Invent 'multiculturalism' and encourage immigrants to maintain their culture. Make it an article of belief that all cultures are equal. That there are no cultural differences. Make it an article of faith that the Black and Hispanic dropout rates are due solely to prejudice and discrimination by the majority. Every other explanation is out of bounds.
THIRD, "We could make the United States an 'Hispanic Quebec' without much effort. The key is to celebrate diversity rather than unity. As
Benjamin Schwarz said in the Atlantic Monthly recently: "The apparent success of our own multiethnic and multicultural experiment might have been achieved not by tolerance but by hegemony. Without the dominance that once dictated ethnocentricity and what it meant to be an American, we are left with only tolerance and pluralism to hold us together."
Lamm said, "I would encourage all immigrants to keep their own language and culture. I would replace the melting pot metaphor with the
salad bowl metaphor. It is important to ensure that we have various cultural subgroups living in America enforcing their differences rather than as Americans, emphasizing their similarities."
"FOURTH, I would make our fastest growing demographic group the least educated. I would add a second underclass, unassimilated,
undereducated, and antagonistic to our population. I would have this second underclass have a 50% dropout rate from high school."
"My FIFTH point for destroying America would be to get big foundations and business to give these efforts lots of money. I would invest
in ethnic identity, and I would establish the cult of 'Victimology.' I would get all minorities to think that their lack of success was the fault of the
majority. I would start a grievance industry blaming all minority failure on the majority population."
"My SIXTH plan for America's downfall would include dual citizenship, and promote divided loyalties. I would celebrate diversity over
unity. I would stress differences rather than similarities. Diverse people worldwide are mostly engaged in hating each other - that is, when they are not killing each other. A diverse, peaceful, or stable society is against most historical precedent. People undervalue the unity it takes to keep a nation together. Look at the ancient Greeks. The Greeks believed that they belonged to the same race; they possessed a common Language and literature; and they worshipped the same gods. All Greece took part in the Olympic games. A common enemy, Persia, threatened their liberty. Yet all these bonds were not strong enough to overcome two factors: local patriotism and geographical conditions that nurtured political divisions. Greece fell. "E Pluribus Unum" -- From many, one. In that historical reality, if we put the emphasis on the 'pluribus' instead of the 'Unum,' we will balkanize America as surely as Kosovo."
"Next to last, SEVENTH,I would place all subjects off limits; make it taboo to talk about anything against the cult of 'diversity.' I would find a word similar to 'heretic' in the 16th century - that stopped discussion and paralyzed thinking. Words like 'racist' or 'xenophobe' halt discussion and debate. Having made America a bilingual/bicultural country, having established multiculturalism, having the large foundations fund the doctrine of 'Victimology,' I would next make it impossible to enforce our immigration laws. I would develop a mantra: That because immigration has been good for America, it must always be good. I would make every individual immigrant symmetric and ignore the cumulative impact of millions of them."
In the last minute of his speech, Governor Lamm wiped his brow.
Profound silence followed. Finally he said, "Lastly, EIGHTH, I would censor Victor Hanson Davis's book "Mexifornia." His book is dangerous. It exposes the plan to destroy America. If you feel America deserves to be destroyed, don't read that book."
There was no applause. A chilling fear quietly rose like an ominous cloud above every attendee at the conference. Every American in that room knew that everything Lamm enumerated was proceeding methodically, quietly, darkly, yet pervasively across the United States today. Discussion is being suppressed. Over 100 languages are ripping the foundation of our educational system and national cohesiveness. Even barbaric cultures that practice female genital mutilation are growing as we celebrate 'diversity.' American jobs are vanishing into the Third World as corporations create a Third World in America - take note of California and other states - to date, ten million illegal aliens and growing fast. It is reminiscent of George Orwell's book "1984." In that story, three slogans are engraved in the Ministry of Truth Building: "War is peace," "Freedom is slavery," and "Ignorance is strength."
Governor Lamm walked back to his seat. It dawned on everyone at the conference that our nation and the future of this great democracy is deeply in trouble and worsening fast. If we don't get this immigration monster stopped within three years, it will rage like a California wildfire and destroy everything in its path especially The American Dream.
If you care for and love our country as I do, take the time to pass this on just as I did for you. NOTHING is going to happen if you don't.
Best Bar Joke...
Guy goes into a bar, there's a robot bartender. The robot says, "What will you have?" The guy says, "Martini." The robot brings back the best martini ever and says to the man,
"What's your IQ?" The guy says, "168."
The robot then proceeds to talk about physics, space exploration and Medical technology.
The guy leaves, but he is curious...
So he goes back into the bar. The robot bartender says, "What will you have?" The guy says, "Martini."
Again, The robot makes a great martini gives it to the man and says,
"What's your IQ?" The guy says, "100."
The robot then starts to talk about NASCAR, Budweiser and John Deere tractors.
The guy leaves, but finds it very interesting, so he thinks he will try it one more time.
He goes back into the bar. The robot says, "What will you have?" The guy says, "Martini," and the robot brings him another great Martini.
The robot then says,
"What's your IQ?" The guy says, "Uh, about 50."
The robot leans in real close and says, "So, you people still happy you Voted for Obama?"
In reply to a message from Ken
"Did you ever imagine you'd see this all happen to YOUR country? In YOUR lifetime??? With the ignorant approval of half the voters!!!??? Did you ever think we'd be accepting lectures on human rights from China? Morality from Iran? Immigration reform from Mexico? All at the invitation of our own president??? 20, 30 years ago, this would have been a late-night comedy skit."
Subject: Success by the White House!!!
President Obama's goals, as publicly stated during the campaign ("spreading the wealth around"), are being achieved! Congratulations to him and his team!!!
http://www.usatoday.com/money/economy/income/2010-05-24-income-shifts-from-private-sector_N.htm reports that private business payrolls are shrinking, and government payrolls (including welfare, social security, etc) are growing, and both have achieved record levels.
Obama and his team are breaking out the champagne and cheering this great news, as tangible proof that their policies are working, and that the liberals goal of reducing private enterprise (you know, *rich* people boo
hiss) to just barely enough to provide for the number of people totally dependent on government money, is closer to being realized than ever before.
I wish I was being sarcastic.

Centrist Democrats Warn Party Not to Present Itself as 'Far Left'
By ADAM NAGOURNEY
Published: July 29, 2003
As much or more important to read today as back then. What's changed, other than the Democratic Party has moved somewhere to the Left of Socialism in their beliefs?
"When a reporter asked a panel of council leaders whether Democratic woes were a result of Republican attacks or Democratic mistakes, Senator Bayh responded with a curt two-word answer that silenced the room.
"Assisted suicide," he said. "
It's getting curiouser and curiouser..... make that scarier.
Glad I didn't vote for him, nudge nudge.. [you, Obama]
in my state politics it's getting stupider and stupider.
We've had a republican majority in both houses for the first time in like,, ever.
While we have bridges literally falling apart, on major highways, all these rubes can do is pass anti-abortion laws. And they're stupid laws that will be challenged in court mounting huge legal costs only to be overturned. Every state agency budget has been cut 10 to 20% except, wait for it.... the Legislation budget. "well there is a law that we can't change our salaries or budgets during session" isn't that convenient.
My disgust level of ALL politics and politicians is at an all time record high.
I really hate to say this, (because everyone does), but of my 2 U S Senators Inhofe is great, Coburn is fairly ok, especially if you look at who they try to run against him.
Take care, time for me to do deep breathing and take a blood pressure pill.
