Here is yet ANOTHER example of Obama's sneakiness with the American people. Once again, his promise for honesty and openness is gone with the wind, replaced by secrecy and sneakiness.

Please don't sit idly by and do nothing.................stand up for our country!

How do you like his new $50,000,000,000.00 Stimulus idea..whoops......he doesn't want us to use the word "stimulus", or "bail out" or any of the other words he has used in the past either.

Once again, he is pointing the blame to the GOP and George W. Bush and ridiculing any who do not agree with him.

This man is juvenile, immature and petty, to say the least. He won't accept any personal responsibility, and always has someone to blame for his actions.

We here on Spark learn that WE are responsible and accountable for our behaviors, and can't blame others for our messes or weight. We learn that we must take ownership, and then course out a plan of recovery.

I wish Obama would join Spark. Maybe he would learn a thing or two!!

Now on to my title, which is a direct quote from Obama.

No, Sir. We DO NOT TREAT YOU LIKE A DOG. Or a DAWG, either.

We love our dogs, and respect them for the intelligence they have. Our relationship with our dogs is one of mutual comfort, love, nuture and care. We can trust our dogs, as they can trust us. We protect each other, and honor each other's dignity. We bring joy, understanding and well being to each other.

We recognize the need for each other for life's embetterment. We cherish what we have, and are always eager to help each other. When our dogs need medical care, we supply the best there is, and not some watered down version of supposedly Socialist medicine where our dogs would have to wait until someone from government decides what kind of treatement our dog needs, or even if the dog warrants treatment at all.

Our relationship with our dogs (dawgs) is a Spiritual one. We learn from our dogs how to be kind, loving, caring and steadfast. We learn unconditional love from each other.

We are proud of our dogs. We know we can rely upon them, and they upon us.

We listen to our dogs, and respond to their needs. We believe we are responsible for our dog's well being, and act accordingly.

When our dogs have a need, and it will cost us money, we do not ignore that need and traips all over the globe shouting at how burdensome and stupid our dogs are.

We do not invite our enemies to build dog houses on our property, nor do we invite them to our lawns for days of prayer while we ignore our own needs for days of prayer.

We do not betray our dogs, as you have betrayed us with your decietfulness.

That all being said, Sir, you can see that we do NOT treat you like a dog (dawg).

You do not have the capacity for honesty, integrity or trust our dogs have. Your behavior demonstrates that on a consistent basis.

You denegrate us to the world, lie to us as though we are morons, and treat us with disdain.

You never listen to us, or pay heed to our wonderful Constitution. If you have your way, our Constitution will be done away with.

You mock our patriotism, religious ferver and American loyalty, encourage the contempt and hate from other nations who are bent on destroying us and continue to financially support them while we as a country are being crumbled into oblivion by your financial morass.

You give sanction to criminals, entitling them to our citizenship when they have crossed our borders illegally and with the intent to do harm. (Kidnapping and drug sales among those charges.)

You ridicule any American who stands up for our laws, and you attack our liberties.

You make up new rules as you go along, grinding our laws into the dirt as a means of serving you and your agendas. You surround yourself with law breakers and thugs, and encourage separatness within our beloved nation.

You mock those who question your citizenship, yet won't stop the rumors or evidence that perhaps you are not a citizen of this country by showing a birth certificate. (A simple act, which should not be too difficult to do, since the rest of us can all present our birth certificates, or proof thereof, whenever necessary.)

No, Mr. Obama, we do not treat you as a dog (dawg). We do not have enough respect, love or trust for you.

As for you, perhaps you ought to re-consider your behavior of treating America like your own personal fire hydrant.

Oh, and by the way: I can see November from my house!!

Interesting Observation

Wednesday, September 08, 2010

Paradoxical thought for the day

"Fathom the odd hypocrisy that Obama wants every citizen to prove they are insured, but people don't have to prove they are citizens".

- Ben Stein -

I believe he doesn't want to require people to prove they are citizens because he refuses to prove that HE is one.

    If we don't prove we are a citizen, do we then have to prove we are insured?

    Interesting! ...I voted for Hillary ;) I always look forward to your blogs! I agree, I kinda see it as putting the cart before the horse. Maybe we should check out how many actual citizens we have and then move on to the next issue of seeing how best to serve those CITIZENS! emoticonJust a thought...

Quilting until Morning

Sunday, August 29, 2010

I didn't take a nap yesterday, and kept busyI spent the day sewing placemats for my Grandson, and getting the tricky parts nearly finished, except for the hours to watch the Red Sox throw the game.

Actually, THEY didn't throw the game; the pitcher did by shooting the ball over to first base, missing it by a wide margin, which allowed the Tampa Bay runner to get on third base, which ultimately led to a score, evening up the score to cause over time. The bottom of the 10th, they scored again.

I would not want to be that pitcher, as it was obvious the error he made which lost the game.

Anyway, back on track. Went to bed at 10:30 after watching a movie, read until 11:30, then lights out and sleep time. Wrong.

I wake up at 2:05 A.M. Can't get back to sleep. Just stayed in bed, in the dark, listening to DH's soft sleep breathing and Winsten's snoring.

Shut my eyes, keep them shut, realizing how comfortable I am, and wide awake. The Grandfather clock strikes 3. Still awake. Still dark.

I start thinking of my Grandson, who is moving in to his first apartment this month. I am thinking about those placemats, waiting to be finished.

I keep my eyes closed.

Brain is thinking to get up since I am wide awake anyway, and go to the sewing room.

I finally get up at 3:30, softly close the door and head to the sewing room. Yep. This is where I want to be.

I stitch until I get to the part of the pattern that does not make any sense whatsoever. No matter how I try, their directions just don't work.

I hate it when that happens.

There is obviously an error in the cutting instructions, because I don't have the pieces they are talking about. I triple check all the directions slowly, making sure I didn't skip a step. Nope. I have exactly what they required.

Then I check each step I took, and sure enough, I did those correctly, too.

And the damn things still won't work. Even though they are kind of pretty.

My eyes are too strained now to continue ripping out seams, so it is time to go back to bed. It is now 7:30. I hear DH sneeze, so I know he is awake.

I tell him my story, and he suggests I turn up the mattress heater, do some reading, and then I will probably be able to go to sleep.

Following instructions, it works. I sleep until 11:30. I get up again, go into the quilt room, look at the placemats and don't like them. Good they are not finished. I am changing the design and fabric and going to make some different ones.

It is exciting to have your grandchild move into their own place. We get to think of all kinds of wonderful stuff we have laying around that they could use. How fun!

Except for one thing. I live in Washington state, he lives in Massachusetts. The postage alone will nearly measure the National Debt.

So placemats, a hand made shower curtain and a bed quilt it will be.

Happy Housewarming to Gabe!!

    All that handmade stuff, Your Grandson will treasure it! I have some handmade quilts and doll outfits my Nana made for me...I'm almost 40 and I still call the biggest quilt "Boo Bankie" (Blue Blanket)!! I feel your shipping cost pain as well! I'm in Arkansas, and my family lives in Washington. This past year at Christmas my husband found a beautiful, solid, carved wood rocking horse for the baby girls...57lbs! I spent almost as much shipping that and the other gifts as I did buying it all! emoticon Shipping Pirates!! emoticon

    You sound like a loving Grandmother. What a great gift your quilt will be for him, something to treasure always. My great aunt gave me a quilt for my wedding made from scraps of my mother's maternity smocks and some of my toddler dresses. 45 years later I still love it. I am reading a book called "The Aloha Quilt" which is great. Enjoy your Sunday!!

    I had the Red Sox on the TV, while I was on the computer last night before bed. I didn't really watch, but my husband had been.
I hate it when I can't understand a pattern, and I do like you did, leave it til next time.
It sounds like it was time to get creative and alter the design.
I also hate it when I wake from sleeping and can't get back to sleep, but I get up too.
You could always gift some of the things for different holidays? It is tough to be a whole country away from your family.
It sounds like you approached the whole situation with lots of peace, and made use of the time anyway. Good for you!

Editing my Blog?

Saturday, August 28, 2010

I just looked in my mailbox, and there was a letter from Jen. She has chastised me for my last blog, requesting I "edit it.

I am not going to edit my blog. It is MY blog, and I am, as an American citizen, entitled to freedom of speech and press.

If folks do not agree with my blogs, you are all free to let me know, and to delete it from your reading list.

It is becoming stranger and stranger in our country with all the restrictions and limitations being put upon us, regardless of what our Constitution says. Big Brother IS watching!!

At my age, I don't care who agrees or disagrees with me. I allow each person to have their own views, as I have mine. Disagreeing with me does not mean either of us is wrong. It simply means we are exercising our freedom of thought.

No, I am not going to edit my blog. Perhaps I will get kicked off Spark, and if that happens, so be it.

I will not be censored.

Am I angry about this? Yes. There is already too much censoring going on regarding our Constitutional rights.

Our nation is in the state it is because of people violating our Constitutional rights left and right, and even "practising" law in violations of that precious safe-guard.

A good example of that is Arizona, trying to defend our borders, and our illustrious government suing them for it. Each state is its own sovereignty. At least SOMEONE is trying to defend America from total ruin! And for that, they are getting a law suit, which in itself, is unconstitutional.

I will write what I choose, as long as it is within the specter of the Constitutional rights. I will say what I choose, and attempt to offend no one.

So now I leave to live out a day of Constitutional freedoms. I have already begun with this blog.

    I tend to agree with lovescamping. I suspect this is a copyright issue rather than a speech issue. You quoted the article in its entirety and did not provide a link to the source.

    Although I consider myself somewhat liberal, and I do not subscribe to the opinions stated in the article, I am 100% behind your right to free speech! I come from a long line of military members and have spent a lot of time overseas as a result of various military postings with my father. I have loved my time spent in foreign countries and feel the exposure to so many other cultures has formed the diverse person I am today. It has also solidified my sense of patriotism and strong appreciation of the freedoms we enjoy as Americans! Good Luck!! emoticon

    Sandy, below is something that I copied from the sparkpeople Community Guidelines for posting on messages boards, blogs, etc. Is it possible that the request to edit had to do with copyright laws and infringement and not a desire to censor?

Although I found the article in your previous blog to be entirely inflammatory and very poor journalism, if it can be called journalism-- I found it to be more of an emotionalistic and inflammatory rant, but of course, that is just my opinion -- I do agree that anyone has a right to their opinion and to express it. I really do suspect that the request to edit was because the blog didn't meet the Community Guidelines though.

    I think Voltaire put it best: "I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it."*
