The United States of America…may we remain free.
By now you have all read the news…the Senate voted 60 to 39 to move the healthcare bill to debate. This is a lesson you can learn from. A Pit Bull Dog is always dangerous. He/she may remain docile for years, but the right trigger can make them show their breeding. Arabian horses are among the most beautiful, but ride one long enough and you will see, somewhere along the way, it will become an airhead. A Democrat might look and talk like a Blue Dog, but when the moment comes they all turn their original color…YELLOW.
Mary Landrieu for Louisiana sold her vote for $300 Million. She corrected that number when she voted. She said, “Most of you think I’m getting $100 Million, but I’m actually getting $300 Million for the fix.” That is 20 times more than we paid in 1803 for the Louisiana Purchase that reached across Texas and to the Canadian border.
We got beat this round. We were also lied to by the Blue Dog Democrats. Let this be a lesson, where the Democrats are concerned money talks and big money will make them shout.
On the other hand we have a president who is insulting all of our allies. The press has been praising Obama for making a speech that demanded equal rights while he was in China. He was speaking to 200 college students. What the press won’t tell you is the Chinese unplugged his broadcast to China. Only the 200 college students heard his speech.
The bigger insult came in Japan. An American living in Japan said the Japanese think the bow made him appear to be a sophomoric bumpkin. No matter what spin the press puts on the bow, 47 other world leaders didn’t bend half way over. Japan wants a strong America. They looked to our Super Power for their security. He bowed to the King of Saudi Arabia. Does he think the office of the president of the United States is less than the other world leaders? Does he think we are below them?
He and Michele patted the Queen on the back. England’s papers are still writing about this blunder. He shunned the French president who asked him to dinner while Obama was flitting around France. He thumbed his nose at Germany’s Merkel by not going to celebrate the fall of the WALL. He pulls Poland’s missile shield on the 70th anniversary of their being invaded.
But the biggest insult came before the bow. The plan was for Obama to arrive in Japan on November 2, have a summit meeting with Emperor Hatoyama on the 13th and leave for Singapore the 14th. Suddenly he informed the Japanese that he was arriving a day late. This angered the Emperor and also the Prime Minister. They had to re-work their busy schedule to accommodate our president. The American who reads Japanese papers said the leaders were insulted. You don’t make last-minute changes of schedule. Obama said it was because of Ft Hood, but that was not true. He was at Ft. Hood on the 10th.
When he arrived in China the leader made Obama sit in his car for 5 to 7 minutes before they would unlock the gate. He was a sitting target. I wonder if China was pondering taking him out. I do know they are upset with our growing debt. My thoughts are now that the president has seen the world perhaps he can stay home and try to figure out what he is going to do in Afghanistan. Naw…that’s asking too much. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
