“We are worried about ‘the cow’ when it is all about the ‘Ice Cream. ‘The most eye-opening civics lesson I ever had was while teaching 3rd grade. The last Presidential election was heating up and some of the children showed an interest. I decided we would have an election for a class president. We would choose our nominees. They would make a campaign speech and the class would vote. To simplify the process, candidates were nominated by other class members. We discussed what kinds of characteristics these students should have. We got many nominations and from those, Jamie and Olivia were picked to run for the top spot.
The class had done a great job in their selections. Both candidates were good kids.

I thought Jamie might have an advantage because he got lots of parental support.

I had never seen Olivia’s mother.

The day arrived when they were to make their speeches.

Jamie went first.

He had specific ideas about how to make our class a better place.
He ended by promising to do his very best.

Everyone applauded and he sat down.

Now is was Olivia’s turn to speak.

Her speech was concise. She said, “If you will vote for me, I will give you ice cream.” She sat down.

The class went wild. “Yes! Yes! We want ice cream.”

She surely would say more. She did not have to.

A discussion followed. How did she plan to pay for the ice cream? She wasn’t sure. But no one pursued that question. They took her at her word.

Would her parents buy it or would the class pay for it…She didn’t know.

The class really didn’t care. All they were thinking about was ice cream…

Jamie was forgotten. Olivia won by a landslide.

Every time Barack Obama opened his mouth he offered ice cream and 51.4 % of the people reacted like nine year old’s.

They want ice cream.

The other 48.6% percent know they’re going to have to feed the cow and clean up the mess.”

This is the ice cream Obama promised us!

Remember, the government cannot give anything to anyone that they have not first taken away from someone else.
Did you vote for the ice cream?

Today in history: April 4…..

April 4…

On this day. 1841: After serving just one month, William Henry Harrison died. He was the ninth president, the first to die in office, and the president who served the shortest time in office. Harrison gave a two-hour long inaugural address on a cold, damp day; he was stricken with pneumonia and died a month later. After his death, there was much debate about whether Vice-President John Tyler would be merely an “Acting President” — until an election could be held. But after a lengthy dispute over presidential succession, Tyler was sworn in as the tenth POTUS and served for the remainder of Harrison’s term.
On this day. 1865: President Lincoln visited Richmond, Va. — the capital of the soon-to-surrender Confederacy. Slaves gathered. Lincoln told them: “You are free — free as air.”
On this day. 1865: Ten days before his murder, Lincoln reportedly told a friend of a dream — in which he was assassinated. In the dream, Lincoln heard people sobbing. He entered the East Room, saw a corpse and asked a soldier: “Who is dead in the White House?” Soldier: “The president. He was killed by an assassin.” A week after the dream — and four days before his murder — Lincoln told the friend, Ward Hill Lamon, that it had “strangely annoyed” him.
On this day. 1910: William Howard Taft became the first president to toss the opening first pitch of the baseball season. Every president but one — Jimmy Carter – has thrown out the first pitch at least once during his presidency.
On this day.  1949:President Truman signed the North Atlantic Pact; a mutual defense treaty among 12 nations.

On this day. 1968: Security was quickly tightened at the White House after the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.; after King’s death, fires and looting came within two blocks of the White House; troops were stationed on the lawn; machine gun nests sprouted.

Reagan’s Childhood Home to Become Parking Lot for Obama’s Library……

The University of Chicago Medical Center has announced plans to turn Ronald Reagan’s childhood home in Chicago into a parking lot for President Barack Obama’s library.

The Commission on Chicago Landmarks previously denied the Gipper’s home landmark status in 2012, according to The Washington Times, and the university subsequently scheduled demolition to begin in January. Officials claim the home does not reach landmark status because it is not architecturally significant and the nation’s 40th president did nothing notable while living there.

Obama begins second term facing pessimistic public….

As President Barack Obama heads into his second term, he faces a pessimistic and weary public, according to a USA Today/Gallup poll released late Tuesday.
The percentage of Americans satisfied with the direction of the country stands at a paltry 23 percent in a poll taken Dec. 14-17. By a margin of 50 to 47 percent, respondents said the country’s best years are over.
Fifty percent of respondents said it is somewhat or very unlikely that today’s youth will have a better life than their parents.
That pessimism and negativity extends to the president, according to the poll

Egypt has a new “Pharaoh”


For I am the Devine, the Power and the Light…”so let it be written, so let it be done”

Egyptian President Mohamed Morsy has issued an order preventing any court from overturning his decisions, essentially allowing him to run the country unchecked until a new constitution is drafted, his spokesman announced on state TV Thursday.
Morsy also ordered retrials and reinvestigations in the deaths of protesters during last year’s uprising against strongman Hosni Mubarak. That could lead to the reprosecution of Mubarak, currently serving a life prison term, and several acquitted officials who served under him.
The order for retrials could please some Egyptians who’ve expressed disappointment that security officers and others have escaped legal consequences over last year’s protester crackdown by the Mubarak regime.
Some demonstrators in Cairo, however — protesting for a fourth day against Morsy and the growing influence of the Muslim Brotherhood — expressed anger over his assumption of more power. About 2,000 people protested Thursday night in and around Tahrir Square, with some chanting “birth of a new pharaoh” and “Morsy the dictator.”
Political rivals also expressed dismay Thursday evening.

“Morsy is taking over the executive, judicial, and legislative powers in his hands, and this is a dangerous path,” said the Twitter account of Hamdeen Sabahy, a former presidential candidate.
“Morsy has issued immunity to any laws he issues. This is the birth of a new dictator,” tweeted Khaled Ali, another former presidential candidate.

AARP: Not backing any presidential candidates…..

AARP is reminding voters that it’s not endorsing any candidates after President Barack Obama cited the group in the first presidential debate.
Obama mentioned the lobbying organization for seniors twice Wednesday in discussing Medicare and Social Security. He noted that AARP supports his health care law and opposes the voucher-like program Republican Mitt Romney has proposed for Medicare in the future.
AARP’s senior vice president, John Hishta, says AARP is nonpartisan and has never consented to the use of its name by any campaign or political group and doesn’t take sides in political races.
Hishta said in a statement released after the debate in Denver that voters deserve more than sound bites about Medicare, Social Security and other programs for seniors.

President Obama Set to Meet Muslim Brotherhood, Snubs Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu.
President Obama invited Muslim Brotherhood-backed Egyptian President Mohammad Morsi to meet him in New York next week, right after publicly snubbing a request from Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to meet with him and discuss the escalating crisis over a nuclear Iran. The Egyptian president’s invitation follows upon repeated protests at the U.S. embassy in Cairo.

The initial protest at the Cairo embassy began on the eleven-year anniversary of the September 11th attacks, and led to the compound’s breach. An official U.S. flag was confiscated and burned. Renewed clashes with Egyptian protesters have led to more American flag burnings and the firing of tear gas to disperse the crowd.

Oddly enough, several protesters spotted at the Cairo embassy were wearing Guy Fawkes masks, which are popular with members of anarcho-socialist movements. It should be noted that the Muslim Brotherhood is an organization that can be justifiably described as a blending of socialist and Islamist traditions.

Even though the political situation in Egypt is fluid, President Obama forgave a billion dollars owed to the U.S. by the Egyptian government and guaranteed a billion dollar infrastructure loan for the country. A recent intelligence report disclosing increasingly closer ties between Egypt and Iran is a red flag that all effective military aid to the country should undergo further State Department review.
The reaction of the Cairo embassy has been a cause for concern for the Obama administration, which has separated itself from the besieged embassy’s public relations campaign. The Cairo embassy originally condemned “the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims – as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions.”

The embassy’s seemingly sympathetic missive was posted in reference to a widely panned movie criticizing Muslims made by an American filmmaker. The Egyptian President Morsi is now pushing for the Egyptian embassy in Washington to take legal action against the producers of the “Innocence of Muslims” film, as the country’s official news agency MENA reported.

It was not the first time that the embassy had apologized for the free speech behavior of American citizens. Earlier, the embassy condemned the burning of a Koran in Florida. Ironically, the burning of an official American flag on our sovereign territory is yet to be condemned by the embassy or the administration. This should not be a surprise from an embassy that spent $40,000 buying copies of Barack Obama’s book Dreams from my Father.

Meanwhile, a row has developed over the attack of the Benghazi, Libya consulate, which led to the murder of a U.S. ambassador and several civilians. One of the first public responses to the attacks by the Obama campaign was to condemn presidential candidate Mitt Romney. The presidential campaign and the complicit mainstream media have gone on an offensive against Mitt Romney in order to provide a smokescreen for the apparent failure of Barack Obama’s foreign policy.

On September 11th, for example, the same day as the Egyptian and Libyan protests, the President praised the “Arab Spring.” In Obama’s Cairo address to the Muslim World delivered early on in his presidency, he said “Islam has a proud tradition of tolerance.” The president also said that America and Islam “share common principles — principles of justice and progress; tolerance and the dignity of all human beings.”

President Obama later assisted with the rise to power of Mohammad Morsi when he pressured Egyptian strongman Hosni Mubarak out of power following the Tahrir Square uprisings as one flower of the Arab Spring. Martial law was declared shortly thereafter, and a struggle between the pro-Mubarak military and Islamist parties for a democratically elected parliament and presidency took place. The Muslim Brotherhood eventually gained a plurality of seats in the parliament and its president Mohammad Morsi installed in power.

Many political observers predicted that this would be the end result of removing Mubarak from power. The Obama administration’s now-obvious affinity for the Muslim Brotherhood follows upon a much-ridiculed request by Michele Bachmann to look into improper ties with the Islamist organization within the State Department and other national security agencies. These requests for a more thorough investigation into the matter should be taken much more seriously than they have been thus far.

In the big picture, Israel is becoming increasingly isolated in the Middle East region, and the Obama administration has demonstrated a noticeable chill towards the tiny Jewish state. So much for being a champion of the underdog.
