You Could Hear A Pin Drop


JFK'S Secretary of State, Dean Rusk, was in France in the early 60's when DeGaulle decided to pull out of NATO.  DeGaulle said he wanted all US military out of France as soon as possible. Rusk responded
"Does that include those who are buried here?"
DeGaulle did not respond. You could have heard a pin drop.

 
When in England ,at a fairly large conference, Colin Powell was asked by the Archbishop of Canterbury if our plans for Iraq were just an example of 'empire building' by the USA.
 
He answered by saying,"Over the years, the United States has sent many of its fine young men and women into great peril to fight for freedom beyond our borders.  The only amount of land we have ever asked for in return is enough to bury those that did not return." You could have heard a pin drop.

 
There was a conference in France where a number of international engineers were taking part, including French and American.  During a break, one of the French engineers came back into the room saying, "Have you heard the latest dumb stunt the USA has done? They sent an aircraft
carrier to Indonesia to help the tsunami victims.  What do they intend to do, bomb them?"
A Boeing engineer
stood up and replied quietly:  "Our carriers have three
hospitals on board that can treat several hundred people; they are nuclear powered and can supply emergency  electrical power to shore facilities; they have three  cafeterias with the capacity to feed 3,000 people three meals a day, they can produce several thousand
gallons of fresh water from sea water each day, and they carry half a dozen helicopters for use in transporting victims and injured to and from their flight deck.  We have eleven such ships;how many does France have?" 
You could have heard a pin drop.

 
A U.S. Navy Admiral was attending a naval conference that included Admirals from the U.S., English, Canadian, Australian and French Navies  At a cocktail reception, he found himself standing with a large group of officers that included personnel from most of those countries. Everyone was chatting away in English as they sipped their drinks but a French admiral suddenly complained that, whereas Europeans learn many languages, Americans learn only English. He then asked, "Why is it that we always have to speak English in these conferences rather than speaking French?"without hesitating:the American Admiral replied, "Maybe it's because the Brit's, Canadians, Aussie's, and Americans arranged it so you wouldn't have to speak German." You could have heard a pin drop.

 
AND THIS STORY FITS RIGHT IN WITH THE ABOVE...
 
Robert Whiting, an elderly gentleman of 83, arrived in Paris by plane.At French Customs, he took a few minutes to locate his passport in his carry on. "You have been to France before, monsieur?" the customs officer asked
sarcastically. 
Mr. Whiting admitted that he had been to France previously. "Then you should know enough to have your passport ready."The American said, "The last time I was here, I didn't have to show it." "Impossible, Americans always have to show their passports on arrival in France !"The American senior gave the Frenchman a long hard look.  Then he quietly explained, ''Well, when I came ashore at Omaha Beach on D-Day in 1944 to help liberate this country, I couldn't find a single Frenchmen to show a passport to."You could have heard a pin drop.
 

I am proud to be of this land, AMERICA

PUT ME IN CHARGE

This was written by a 21 yr old female who gets it. It's her future, she's worried about and this is how she feels about the social welfare big government state that she's being forced to live in! These solutions are just common sense in her opinion.
This was in the Waco Tribune Herald, Waco , TX , Nov 18, 


Put me in charge of food stamps. I'd get rid of Lone Star cards; no cash for Ding Dongs or Ho Ho's, just money for 50-pound bags of rice and beans, blocks of cheese and all the powdered milk you can haul away. If you want
steak and frozen pizza, then get a job.

Put me in charge of Medicaid. The first thing I'd do is to get women Norplant birth control implants or tubal legations. Then, we'll test recipients for drugs, alcohol, and nicotine. If you want to reproduce or use drugs, alcohol, or smoke, then get a job.

Put me in charge of government housing. Ever live in a military barracks? You will maintain our property in a clean and good state of repair. Your home" will be subject to inspections anytime and possessions will be inventoried. If you want a plasma TV or Xbox 360, then get a job and your own place.

In addition, you will either present a check stub from a job each week or you will report to a "government" job. It may be cleaning the roadways of trash, painting and repairing public housing, whatever we find for you. We
will sell your 22 inch rims and low profile tires and your blasting stereo and speakers and put that money toward the "common good.."

Before you write that I've violated someone's rights, realize that all of the above is voluntary. If you want our money, accept our rules. Before you say that this would be "demeaning" and ruin their "self esteem," consider
that it wasn't that long ago that taking someone else's money for doing absolutely nothing was demeaning and lowered self esteem.

If we are expected to pay for other people's mistakes we should at least attempt to make them learn from their bad choices. The current system rewards them for continuing to make bad choices.

AND While you are on Gov't subsistence, you no longer can VOTE! Yes, that is correct. For you to vote would be a conflict of interest. You will voluntarily remove yourself from voting while you are receiving a Gov't welfare check. If you want to vote, then get a job.

A Father's Speaks The Truth!


Worth 
the read!  
Columbine 
student's father 12 years later. I wonder why this was never put out by the news media? 

Our national leaders didn't expect this. On Thursday, Darrell 
Scott, the father of Rachel Scott, a victim of the Columbine 
High School shootings in Littleton, Colorado , was invited to 
address the House Judiciary Committee's subcommittee. What he 
said to our national leaders during this special session of 
Congress was painfully truthful. They were not prepared for what he 
was to say, nor was it received well. It needs to be heard by 
every parent, every teacher, every politician, every 
sociologist, every psychologist, and every so-called expert! 
These courageous words spoken by Darrell Scott are powerful, penetrating, and deeply personal. There is no doubt that God sent this man as a voice crying in the wilderness. The 
following is a portion of the transcript:

"Since 
the dawn of creation there has been both good & evil in 
the hearts of men and women. We all contain the seeds of 
kindness or the seeds of violence. The death of my wonderful 
daughter, Rachel Joy Scott, and the deaths of that heroic 
teacher, and the other eleven children who died must not be in 
vain. Their blood cries out for answers. 

"The first 
recorded act of violence was when Cain slew his brother Abel 
out in the field. The villain was not the club he used.. Neither was it the NCA, 
the National Club Association. The true killer was Cain, and 
the reason for the murder could only be found in Cain's heart. 

"In the days that followed the Columbine tragedy, I 
was amazed at how quickly fingers began to be pointed at 
groups such as the NRA. I am not a member of the NRA. I am not
a hunter. I do not even own a gun. I am not here to represent 
or defend the NRA - because I don't believe that they are 
responsible for my daughter's death. Therefore I do not 
believe that they need to be defended. If I believed they had 
anything to do with Rachel's murder I would be their strongest 
opponent 

I am here today to declare that Columbine was 
not just a tragedy -- it was a spiritual event that should be 
forcing us to look at where the real blame lies! Much of the 
blame lies here in this room. Much of the blame lies behind 
the pointing fingers of the accusers themselves. I wrote a 
poem just four nights ago that expresses my feelings best. 

Your laws ignore our deepest 
needs, 
Your 
words are empty air. 
You've stripped away our 
heritage
You've outlawed simple 
prayer
Now gunshots fill our 
classrooms
And 
precious children die. 
You seek for answers 
everywhere
And 
ask the question "Why?" 
You regulate restrictive laws
Through legislative 
creed. 
And yet you fail 
to understand
That 
God is what we need! 

"Men and women are three-part beings. We all consist of body, mind, 
and spirit. When we refuse to acknowledge a third part of our 
make-up, we create a void that allows evil, prejudice, and 
hatred to rush in and wreak havoc. Spiritual presences were 
present within our educational systems for most of our 
nation's history. Many of our major colleges began as 
theological seminaries. This is a historical fact. What has 
happened to us as a nation? We have refused to honor God, and 
in so doing, we open the doors to hatred and violence. And 
when something as terrible as Columbine's tragedy occurs -- 
politicians immediately look for a scapegoat such as the NRA. 
They immediately seek to pass more restrictive laws that 
contribute to erode away our personal and private liberties. 
We do not need more restrictive laws. Eric and Dylan would not 
have been stopped by metal detectors. No amount of gun laws 
can stop someone who spends months planning this type of 
massacre. The real villain lies within our own hearts. 

"As my son Craig lay under that table in the school 
library and saw his two friends murdered before his very eyes, 
he did not hesitate to pray in school. I defy any law or 
politician to deny him that right! I challenge every young 
person in America and around the world, to realize 
that on April 20, 1999, at Columbine High School prayer was 
brought back to our schools. Do not let the many prayers 
offered by those students be in vain. Dare to move into the 
new millennium with a sacred disregard for legislation that 
violates your God-given right to communicate with Him. To 
those of you who would point your finger at the NRA -- I give 
to you a sincere challenge.. Dare to examine your own 
heart before casting the first stone! My daughter's death 
will not be in vain! The young people of this country will not 
allow that to happen!" - 
Darrell 
Scott 
Do 
what the media did not - - let the nation hear this man's 
speech. Please send this out to everyone you 
can. 
God 
Bless

Will You Sell Your House After 2013?



If you know anyone who might want to seel their home in a couple of years, be sure to let them know about this.  I DO pray that obamacare will not be able to go into effect EVER!!


 THIS WILL BLOW YOU AWAY !!!!!The National Association of REALTORS is all over this and working to get it repealed,  before it takes effect.  But,  I am very pleased we aren't the only ones who know about this ploy to steal billions from unsuspecting homeowners.  How many REALTORS do you think will vote Democratic in 2013


 Did you know that if you sell your house after 2012 you will pay a 3.8% sales tax on it?  That's $3,800 on a $100,000 home,  etc.  When did this happen?  It's in the health care bill and goes into effect in 2013.

Why 2013?  Could it be to come to light AFTER the 2012 elections?  So,  this is "change you can believe in"?  Under the new health care bill all real estate transactions will be subject to a 3.8% Sales Tax.

 If you sell a $400,000 home,  there will be a $15,200 tax.
 This bill is set to screw the retiring generation who often downsize their homes.  Does this make your November and 2012 vote more important?

  Oh,  you weren't aware this was in the Obamacare bill?  Guess what,  you aren't alone.  There are more than a few members of Congress that aren't aware of it either  http://www.gop.gov/blog/10/04/08/obamacare-flatlines-obamacare-taxes-home<http://www.gop.gov/blog/10/04/08/obamacare-flatlines-obamacare-taxes-

If only our News media would report on news like this!!!

General Electric, which is owned by the Rockefeller family, is planning to move its 115-year-old X-ray division from Waukesha, Wis., to Beijing. In addition to moving the headquarters, the company will invest $2 billion in China and train more than 65 engineers and create six research centers.

This is the same GE that made $5.1 billion in the United States last year; but paid no taxes-the same company that employs more people overseas than it does in the United States.

So let me get this straight. President Obama appointed GE Chairman Jeff Immelt to head his commission on job creation ("job czar"). He is supposed to help create jobs. I guess Our President forgot to tell him in which country he was supposed to be creating those jobs or did he know.

If this doesn't show you the total lack of leadership of this President, I don't know what does. Please pass this information to others and think about it before you buy a GE product.

This has been verified on Snopes.

Wal-Mart vs.The Government



• Americans spend $36,000,000 at Wal-Mart every hour of every day. 

• This works out to $20,928 profit every minute! 
• Wal-Mart will sell more from January 1 to St. Patrick's Day (March 17th) than Target sells all year. 
• Wal-Mart is bigger than Home Depot + Kroger + Target +Sears + Costco + K-Mart combined. 
• Wal-Mart employs 1.6 million people, is the world's largest private employer, and most speak English. 
• Wal-Mart is the largest company in the history of the world. 
• Wal-Mart now sells more food than Kroger and Safeway combined, and keep in mind they did this in only fifteen years. 
• During this same period, 31 big supermarket chains sought bankruptcy. 
• Wal-Mart now sells more food than any other store in the world. 
• Wal-Mart has approx 3,900 stores in the USA of which 1,906 are Super Centers; this is 1,000 more than it had five years ago. 
• This year 7.2 billion different purchasing experiences will occur at Wal-Mart stores. (Earth's population is approximately 6.5 Billion). 
• 90% of all Americans live within fifteen miles of a Wal-Mart. 
You may call this complaining, but it’s really laying the groundwork for suggesting that MAYBE we should hire the guys who run Wal-Mart to fix the economy. 
This should be read and understood by “ALL” Americans - Democrats, Republicans, Independents, etc…!!  To President Obama and all 535 voting members of the Legislature.  
It is now official that the majority of you are corrupt morons: 

• The U.S. Postal Service was established in 1775. You have had 234 years to get it right and it is broke. 
• Social Security was established in 1935. You have had 74 years to get it right and it is broke. 
• Fannie Mae was established in 1938. You have had 71 years to get it right and it is broke. 
• War on Poverty started in 1964. You have had 45 years to get it right; $1 trillion of our money is confiscated each year and transferred to "the poor" and they only want more. 
• Medicare and Medicaid were established in 1965. You have had 44 years to get it right and they are broke. 
• Freddie Mac was established in 1970. You have had 39 years to get it right and it is broke. 
• The Department of Energy was created in 1977 to lessen our dependence on foreign oil. It has ballooned to 16,000 employees with a budget of $24 billion a year and we import more oil than ever before. You had 32 years to get it right and it is an abysmal failure. 
You have FAILED in every "government service" you have shoved down our throats while over-spending our tax dollars.  AND YOU WANT AMERICANS TO BELIEVE YOU CAN BE TRUSTED WITH A GOVERNMENT-RUN HEALTH CARE SYSTEM? Folks, keep this circulating. It is very well stated.  Maybe it will end up in the e-mails of some of our "duly elected' and their staff will clue them in on how Americans feel. 
AND ONE MORE FACT:
We have lost our minds to "Political Correctness”!Someone please tell me what the hell is wrong with all the people that run this country! We're "broke" and can't help our own Seniors, Veterans, Orphans, Homeless, etc… In the last months we have provided aid to Haiti , Chile , Turkey , and now Pakistan , BILLIONS of DOLLARS!!!  Our retired seniors living on a 'fixed income' receive no aid nor do they get any breaks while our government and religious organizations pour hundreds of Billions of $$$$$$'s and Tons of Food to Foreign Countries! 
AMERICA:  a country where we have homeless without shelter, children going to bed hungry, elderly going without 'needed' meds, and mentally ill without treatment, etc, etc. YET...................... They have a 'Benefit' for the people of Haiti, ships and planes lining up with food, water, tents clothes, bedding, doctors and medical supplies. Imagine if the *GOVERNMENT* gave 'US' the same support they give to other countries.  Sad isn't it?

WHERE ARE THEY NOW?


 The three men who brought down Wall Street.

Here's a quick look into the three former Fannie Mae executives who
brought down Wall Street.

Franklin Raines was a Chairman and Chief Executive Officer at Fannie Mae.
Raines was forced to retire from his position with Fannie Mae when
auditing discovered severe irregularities in Fannie Mae's accounting
activities. Raines left with a "golden parachute valued at $240 Million in
benefits. The Government filed suit against Raines when the depth of the
accounting scandal became clear.

Tim Howard  was the Chief Financial Officer of Fannie Mae. Howard "was a
strong internal proponent of using accounting strategies that would ensure
a "stable pattern of earnings" at Fannie. Investigations by federal
regulators and the company's board of directors since concluded that
management did manipulate 1998 earnings to trigger bonuses

Raines and Howard resigned under pressure in late 2004. Howard's Golden Parachute was estimated at $20 Million!

Jim Johnson  A former executive at Lehman Brothers and who was later
forced from his position as Fannie Mae CEO. Investigators found that
Fannie Mae had hidden a substantial amount of Johnson's 1998 compensation
from the public, reporting that it was between  $6 million and $7 million when in fact it was $21 million." Johnson is currently under investigation for taking illegal loans from Countrywide while serving as CEO of Fannie Mae.
Johnson's Golden Parachute was estimated at $28 Million.

              WHERE ARE THEY NOW?FRANKLIN RAINES?Raines works for the Obama Campaign as his Chief Economic Advisor.TIM HOWARD?Howard is a Chief Economic Advisor t o Obama under Franklin Raines.JIM JOHNSON?Johnson was hired as a Senior Obama Finance Advisor and was selected to
run Obama's Vice Presidential Search Committee.
Are we stupid or what? Vote in 2012..it is the most important election of our lives...

OBAMA: He Is Historic Alright!




YES, HE'S HISTORIC, ALRIGHT. 
JUST LOOK AT THE FIRST TIME
 ACCOMPLISHMENTS













But remember: he will not rest until all Americans have jobs, affordable homes, green-energy vehicles, and the environment is repaired, etc., etc., etc.
