I absolutely love Halloween. It’s kind of a big deal in my family. My dad cooks all day: yummy chili and gumbo. The atmosphere is full of anticipation and the smell of my dad’s cooking. Mom has decorated the house beautifully with fun Halloween decorations and fall goodness. Browns, reds, and oranges are everywhere. Even the trees celebrate with their changing leaves.

The kids would get their costumes ready. Mom made sure the candy bowl was full. Grandma and Grandpa come up for this special day. No one can wait for the sun to start going down so that Trick-or-Treating can begin. After dinner, Dad and Grandpa (and for a bit Mom and Grandma) would take us kiddos out Trick-or-Treating. I remember being so excited! I would run to everyone’s house and practically SCREAM “trick-or-treat.” One year, I even sprained my ankle running up and down the hills of our neighborhood.

I went trick-or-treating until my sophomore year of high school; I decided I had more fun passing out candy to the little kids and seeing all of their cute costumes. It’s so exciting to see all the cute princesses, the handsome little cops, the scary zombies and witches.

Halloween is supposed to be fun! Dressing up, getting candy… It’s classic.

I found this article while browsing the Washington Post this morning.

It is a picture of Obama as a Zombie with Nancy Pelosi. There are a few supplementary pictures in this little collage. I’m not going to lie, I kind of laughed at it. I thought it was funny. It’s celebrating Halloween with our elected leaders. I’m torn, however, in my opinion of it.

I understand where the VA. Governor McDonnell is coming from concerning the picture. We all need to have respect for each other and our political leaders. (In their case, they need to respect their political counterparts). Respect needs to transcend party lines and political ideologies. And the bullet hole in Obama’s head could possible come off the wrong way…

But on the other hand, I feel like this picture is well within the rights of the First Amendment, of Freedom of Speech. It’s not condoning killing President Obama. It’s just celebrating the Halloween spirit. Perhaps they could have made the picture without the bullet hole… but Zombies are living-dead things aren’t they? Don’t put too much thought into it.

I think this is just a difference of opinion about what is respectful and civil and what is not. It’s a difference of humor, and maybe Gov. McDonnell needs to get one and just have a little bit of fun.

The best part of the picture, though, is not Obama. Nope. It’s Nancy Pelosi. It doesn’t look much different from any other picture of her. 😛

Happy Tuesday everyone.

The 10 Yr. Old

I love this video of Rep. Joe Walsh on a CNN show speaking about Obama. He describes the President as a “ten-year old” who is “in over his head.” Can’t say I disagree.

He makes some other great points as well. Obama doesn’t like to take any criticism and gets awfully defensive when people question his policies and what he has actually accomplished as President. If he had accomplished something, I don’t think Obama would get so defensive. But he hasn’t, and he knows it, and now he’s putting on a front that it close to tumbling down.

Walsh also mentions his golfing and how he really has no right to question where the Republicans have been when he has been hard to find in the White House.

Hope you guys enjoy listening to Walsh speak as much as I did.

Let’s Blame Bush Again!

Is Obama not grown-up enough to understand that he cannot blame Bush for all of his problems?

Oh so high and mighty President Barrack Obama has been blaming the previous administration for every single economic problem that has plagued our country.

So, now it’s getting on my nerves to the point where I am going to blog about it, so that everyone can know just exactly how I feel.

Here we go. As always I do have a article for you.

I don’t know what y’all think, but the title says it all for me. “Obama PLEADS for Patience on Economic Recovery.”

Patience, Obama?  Really? Honestly? You’re serious? Pah-lease.

Of course he is serious. The dude, excuse me, the Mr. Dude President expects us to 1) bow down before him like he is the savior, 2) believe all the lies that emit from the hole in his face, 3) trust that he is competent enough to run this GREAT country, and 4) wait around for him to do whatever he dern well pleases.

Uuuuummmmm, no thank you?

I am done pretending he is the greatest thing since sliced bread, I never believed one word he said, he isn’t even competent (don’t make me laugh) and I have never had enough patience to even look at his face much less for his policies.

You can only blame the previous admin. for so long. The guy on Fox and Friends this morning said 2 years you can blame the peeps before ya. I think that’s awfully lenient. I say MAYBE a year. And Obama is a year past the year of blame. Maybe he needs to become an adult (Let’s learn he rules of life Ob!) and take a little bit of responsibility for the economy. I mean, he is our president after all (and I say that loosely. He doesn’t act much like a president).

Obama is asking for patience because he realizes he has failed. I think this was his Hail Mary. “PEOPLE OF AMERICA! I know I have failed you but I am just SO fabulous that I expect a million do-overs. I need your patience because, let’s face it, I’m Barack Obama.” And then you hear crickets. And then you hear me in the back laughing my BUTT off, rolling on the floor, tears streaming down my face. I can just see the scene now… And then everyone else would start laughing. And Barack would get laughed off stage. Oh! Sweet dreams.

Ok sorry. Back to the article…. Got a little off topic there. 😛

A recession doesn’t fix itself over night… **Checks calendar.** It’s been two years since this recession began… I don’t know about you, but if two years is overnight for you, you have probably been in a coma and should see a doctor.

He goes on to blab about how we need to create more jobs. Now… this is where I really start to get aggravated because wasn’t the stimulus plan supposed to create jobs? How many of billions and trillions of dollars was that again? And how many jobs did we actually create? We created a few government jobs, a few private sector jobs, and then lost a few hundred thousand private sector jobs. Success? I think a resounding NO.

So maybe you can see why I’m not so patient with Obama anymore. He talks in circles, and this again, proves his hypocrisy. If only I was smart enough to start a list of his lies. Maybe I still will.

Yours,

Lucy

 

OBL Pics a No Go

Found out this morning that Obama will not be releasing the pictures of the dead Osama bin Laden.

I’m slightly angered by this. I feel that as an American citizen I have the right to see a picture of the dead Osama bin Laden. I have the right to see the man who master minded the September 11th attacks on our country (God bless those heroes’ souls). Do I not have the right to see a picture of the worlds most known terrorist dead? The man who was no. 1 on the FBI’s Most Wanted List?

Apparently, Obama doesn’t think so.

Since I don’t have a radio in my dorm room, every once in a while I read the transcripts from Rush Limbaugh’s show. And he made an interested point today.

http://www.rushlimbaugh.com/home/daily/site_050411/content/01125108.guest.html

He said that the reason Obama is not releasing the photos is to distract the American people from the economy, from gas prices, from slow job growth, etc. According to Jake Tapper of ABC News, “President Obama is increasingly doubtful that there’s a compelling reason to release a photograph of Osama Bin Laden’s corpse…” Is he now?

I guess I just don’t understand this. Whats the confusing part here Obama? How do you not see a “compelling reason” to show your American citizens, the people you are supposed to be representing and helping, the death of the man who led the attack on our country?

“Meanwhile, sources say, Defense Secretary Robert Gates and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton are advising the president about concerns at the Pentagon and State Department that releasing a photograph could prompt a backlash against the US for killing bin Laden where one does not seem to currently exist.” Just. Wow. Honestly? There’s no threat of a backlash against us from Al Qaeda after we killed their leader? Now that’s a lie. I mean, I’m not in the armed forces, I don’t work for the CIA or the FBI. I don’t have security clearance. But doesn’t that just seem like common sense? Common sense that we killed a leader of Al Qaeda, and OBL’s followers are now going to want to retaliate and avenge his death? Seems logical to me. But I’m just a little college student… What do I know, right?

The rest of Rush’s transcript is hilarious. I’d really urge you all to read it if you have some free time.

I’d really like to see these pictures. I’d like to see the DNA. Not so much because I’m skeptical that Osama is dead. Not it at all. I just like physical proof. I like seeing things for myself. I’d rather not have to just rely on Obama’s word. So release the pics Barack. Release the pics.

Take my poll! Should Obama release the pictures of Osama bin Laden dead?

Oh My.

I have many liberal friends. In fact, most of my friends are liberal. And they are one of the main reasons I started this blog. So I will be putting one of them on the spot in this blog. Their name has been omitted, for obvious reasons.

This is their Facebook status: when did saying “I like the President” turn into something so terrible as to make it almost reprehensible? I wonder if it’s because he’s Liberal, or because he’s black, or maybe just because he scares them because of how much he wants to change this country for the better…either way he’s a hell of a lot better than the alternative.

There are obvious flaws with this status. It’s taking all of the self-control I can muster not to comment on this status and start a FB debate (I have done that multiple times before.) But I know I’ll win the debate, so it’s not really worth it. Instead, I’ll blog my thoughts you to lovely folks.

HOW STUPID IS THIS?! Seriously, my friend, you need to open your brain and let the light in. Let’s dust out the cobwebs here…

Obama has done NOTHING. Let me repeat this for those of you who are hard of hearing. OBAMA has done NOTHING to help out country.

His stimulus plan was a dud. Cash for clunkers was a failure. How’s his health care plan doing? How’s unemployment? How’s the deficit that he swore would be reduced by half before his first term was over?

Yeah… I rest my case.

It’s not terrible to simply say “I like the president.” I’m sure he would be a decent guy on the golf course or out shooting some hoops or a good guy to consult for your March Madness basketball stuff.

But as a politician who holds the fate of this great country in his hands, he has to be… I don’t even know. An incompetent, not helpful, thing? Honestly. What EXACTLY has he DONE  since he’s been in office? I would LOVE for you to tell me… Somebody! Anybody! GIVE ME ANSWERS!

He certainly is liberal, can’t lie with that.

He’s, ummm, black? Correction. He is half black. More correctly he is “mixed race.” Let’s, again, get our facts straight. That’s an easy one… And one thing I don’t understand that relates to this black comment… In a world that wants to eliminate race, how come it’s always shoved in our faces? Oh! We have a black president! If skin color didn’t matter, then how come we give it so much emphasis? Just some food for thought. I like challenging y’all.

I don’t know about y’all, but I am scared of Obama. Definitely. I’m scared that he has people believing that he wants to change people for the better. I’m scared that he still has followers. I’m scared that people still like him. I’m scared of the ideas he is able to concoct. I’m scared of our deficit. I’m scared of the unemployment rates. I’m scared of him being reelected into office in 2012. I’m scared of the stupidity of some people (of my friends!). I’m scared of the direction our country is going under Obama. I’m scared of ObamaCare. I’m scared of what our taxes could look like in a few years.

Another question… What in the world is the alternative? If Obama is better than it, then it must be Hitler or a scary, 3-headed monster that is going to eat all Americans. Lol.

I don’t think this is what my dear friend means. If I had to guess, the alternative is the Republicans, the Tea-Partiers, the *gasp* CONSERVATIVES!!! Oooooh, the horrors! Save us all! Obama! Where is our savior?!

Good grief. When I heard S.E. Cupp speak, she said something extremely profound… (It’s paraphrased a little, but you’ll get the gist.) “We are all born conservative. We don’t want to pay high taxes or be indebted to the government or have our lives controlled by others who think they have the right to control it.” Well said, S.E. Who in their right mind (no pun intended) wants to have their lives controlled by other people? Not me, say I. I think I’ll run my own life, thanks.

If only my thick friends and all other liberals out there were smart enough to think the same way… Ahhh. Sweet wishes.
