Some thoughts....

"If a political party does not have it's foundation in the determination to advance a cause that is right & that is moral, then it is not a political party; it is merely a conspiracy to seize power"
- Dwight D. Eisenhower 1956

"There is nothing which I dread so much as a division of the republic into 2 great parties, each arranged under its leader, and concerting measures in opposition to each other. This, in my humble apprehension, is to be dreaded as the greatest political evil under our constitution."
-John Adams 1789

"I was no party man myself, & the first wish of my heart was, if parties did exist, to reconcile them."
-George Washington

A sad truth...

Folks, we passed another monumental point in our history. Not the part about re-electing President Obama (besides that) I'm talking about something more devastating.

I am talking about the 51% who apparently slept though any semblance of a history class. The ones who took a HUGE step towards lighting a match and moving it in the direction of the constitution. The fact that they stood together, arm in arm and decided that they were in favor of turning their backs on the founding principals.

What are those you ask?...

Open Government, Free Enterprise, right to self-government (but that hasn't been around since the 1800's), the right to life, the Bill of Rights, the right to keep what you work for and so forth.

Let me ask you this set of questions? Do you like the fact that the stock market closed 313 points lower since the election? Cause I don't.

Do you like the fact that Applebee's, Papa John's and many other companies are going to start slashing jobs like it's 1929?
Not me.

Do you like the fact that the liberal media bashed #43 for his "failed" response to Katrina, while #44 flew in, hugged some people and bolted out to the campaign trail and has not ONCE mentioned the thousands who are left freezing, without food and power. Oh but Chris Matthews is "happy that storm hit"

Folks I am not a republican shill, I am one who believes in what Jefferson once said:

"The price of freedom is eternal vigilance."

We must now more than ever question our leaders, our country was built on that idea! If we don't, we will lose any and all rights. At that point, the dream that was the United States will be nothing more than a whisper and a thought..both gone with the slightest bit of resistance. History has shown this time and again.

We have reaped, please don't complain when you see what will be sown from it.

Long live free thought..

A tale of two cities

I'm sure that everyone and their mother has had something to say about the fact that there was a legit uproar over the lack of action on the part of the president during Katrina and how it has been relatively quite on the Sandy front, well here is my 2 cents...

From a historical perspectives many liberal professors and publications will focus on the fact that the 44th president wasted little time flying about 30 minutes to NJ to inspect the damage. Only a few have pointed out the fact he was there for a whopping 90 minutes and still less report on the fact his next stop was NV, whatever liberals be liberals and that is fine. Since we all tarred and feathered 43 for his lack of a response to Katrina, I would like to look at the following:

The BP oil spill: didn't really heal the ocean as he promised, right?

Texas wildfire: kinda just ignored the red state, hoping that the rest would catch fire and hopefully eliminate all the bad conservatives from the earth.

Iowa flood: he was probably golfing and couldn't be disturbed.

And finally I am going to demonstrate my severe bias and blast the president for his lack of a response for my home state. After hurricane Irene blasted though the tiniest of states, leaving 343,000 without power does anyone remember the response? He flew to Boston for a $300 a plate fundraiser. Why the people of RI remain staunch defenders of Democrats defies me
