All the news I wish to print

There are all kinds of stories out there. Some will make you laugh, some will make you cry. Some will make you shrug, some will make you scream. Read any daily paper or listen to any newscast and your emotions can go from happy to sad to disbelief to fear to incredulity to horror to anger in very short order.
As we go along, there will be stories, as Paul Harvey used to say, to "wash your ears out with." There will be others that will make you feel like you need to be deloused simply by virtue of have in heard or read them. Some posts will be religious, some secular and for some I expect will defy easy classification in either category. I hope you will join me in this journey and pleas feel free to comment along the way.
For my part I pledge not to remove any posts unless they are vulgar, libelous, threatening or otherwise in violation of the standards of civil discussion. I will not remove any post simply because I disagree with it but I will reserve the right to respond to any challenges that come my way.
God bless you and welome to my blog.

This Pretty much sums up Obama's thought process

The environmental movement sounds like an idea that cannot be argued with. After all who could be against clean air and water, reduced reliance on fossil fuels and foreign energy and all that feel good Captain Planet stuff we are constantly told they care oh so much about. This cartoon from National Review Online pretty much sums up how these elitist hypocrites think. "Listen what I say but ignore what I do." Then he goes on vacation arriving in Martha's Vineyard three hours apart on his and her jets.
Three hours? Really? Michele couldn't wait three hours and save the taxpayers the expense-not to mention the ever increasing size of the carbon footprint of this first family-by traveling on the same plane as her husband? Yet we are expected to be patient after three and a half years while our economy unravels while this President blames everyone and everything, whines about criticism of any kind, Campaigns ceaselessly for re-election, plays golf and generally does not actually DO anything constructive.
Mr President, I would ask you to get back work, but then that would imply that you had actually done any work to begin with. Such is not the case. Instead you have chosen, just as you did in your brief legislative career, to vote "present" while others do the heavy lifting, while you sit back, light up another Marlboro, and do your level best to live up to the phrase, Those who can, do and those who can't, criticize.
