Black Republicans Demand Obama 'Bus' Apology

Okay, I just want to know who is REALLY the racist here?

Black Republicans Demand Obama 'Bus' Apology

Black Republican leaders are demanding that President Barack Obama apologize for what they consider a racially insensitive remark that he made on the campaign trail this weekend.

During a campaign swing the president said, "We don't mind the Republicans joining us. They can come for a ride, but they gotta sit in back."

Dr. Timothy F. Johnson, the black Republican who heads the Frederick Douglass Foundation, told Newsmax in an e-mail Wednesday that Obama should immediately apologize for the offensive reference to the Jim Crow era.

"Once again the president is perpetuating the racism that exists, and [is] portrayed by the so-called Civil Rights organizations and their leaders," Johnson stated.

"Americans are sick and tired of these divisive statements the president continues to make," he added. "Our first objective is November 2, 2010.

"Next is to find the next president of the United States, and retire President Obama to Chicago, Hawaii, or Kenya in Nov. 2012," stated Johnson.

Johnson is not alone in finding the president's "sit in back" remark offensive.

Frances Rice, chairman of the National Black Republican Association, tells Newsmax: "As evidenced by his words and actions on numerous occasions, President Obama deliberately engages in the politics of race-baiting for partisan political gain, a tactic Democrats have used since the days of slavery. I believe Obama knew a racially-tinged image would result from his saying Republicans should be put in the back of his metaphorical car, and he would not even consider apologizing."

What if a Republican president had made such a remark? asked Fox News contributor Monica Crowley. She said it would have triggered an uproar from Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson.

"I think after the Civil Rights movement of the 1960s, riding in the back certainly does have some Civil Rights and racial overtones to it, and you can't tell me the president of the United States wasn't aware of it when he said it," Crowley said Wednesday on Fox News. "I found his comment there appalling [and] I found his refusal to address it in a straightforward way also appalling."

The "sit in back" remark is part of a pattern of increasingly divisive rhetoric from the president in the run up to the midterm elections, Crowley said.

In one recent example, on Monday President Obama urged Latinos to "punish our enemies" during a Univision broadcast.

“If Latinos sit out the election," Obama said, "instead of saying, ‘We’re gonna punish our enemies and we’re gonna reward our friends who stand with us on issues that are important to us,’ if they don’t see that kind of upsurge in voting in this election, then I think it’s gonna be harder . . . "

Crowley added: "This is nothing new. Ever since this man became president nearly two years ago now, he has constantly used this kind of incredibly divisive rhetoric. He seems to forget that he's no longer campaigning.

"He's the president of the United States. The president is supposed to be the president of all the people, even those who disagree with his agenda and who disagree with him," Crowley said.

White House press secretary Robert Gibbs did not shy away from the controversial "sit in back" statement when asked about it in a press briefing.

He portrayed it as part of the ongoing metaphor that the president has used to assert Republicans drove the economy into a ditch.

“The president said this weekend that the Republicans are going to ride in the back and the middle class will be in the passenger’s seat,” Gibbs said.

In a none-too-subtle jab he added: “We’re certainly concerned with backseat driving.”

Our Middle School PTA was recently asked to help fund the sex education program that starts in 8th grade and goes through Senior year at the high school. Why? The government cut funding for the program. What does the program promote? ABSTINENCE. Go figure.

"That's Important to Me" by JOEY+RORY - OFFICIAL VIDEO


A few years ago, I stumbled upon this husband/wife Country Duo on "Can You Duet?" It was a Country Music competition on CMT, like "American Idol". (I believe Ryan Seacrest actually produced it...but don't hold me to that.) Anyway, as I watched the two of them, I thought to myself, "These people are honest to goodness real and loving people." Their actions and words spoke volumes to me. They didn't win the competition, but they won me over!

I am not a Traditional Country Music fan. Not at all. I am a Pop Country fan. That is all you'll find me listening to these days, unless my kids are making me listen to something else. Artists such as Carrie Underwood, Miranda Lambert, and even Gloriana top the list of my "favs" at this moment. But, Joey and Rory have a special place in my heart. Their music is pure, simple, and has a way of calming my nerves and easing away stress. I especially like to listen to it in the fall...I don't know why. Maybe it's the changing leaves falling to the ground ,or the crisp autumn air that makes me think of harvested fields, bales of hay, and the slow pace of farm life. I don't know. But, it soothes my soul and carries me off to another place far far away where schedules don't matter, and the only sense of time is told by the sun. Aahhhh....

This new song, "That's Important To Me" hits home, and says all too well how I feel about MY life. Well, all except the gardening part...unless you consider one tomato plant, one jalepeno plant, and a few flower pots on the porch and under the deck to be Gardening. And, let's just say Joey's version and my version of a home-cooked meal may differ a bit. Making dinner and eating around the table are important to me, but making bread from scratch ain't gonna happen! But, I do try to provide balanced and yummy tasting meals that are COOKED IN MY HOME. may not be good old-fashioned Home Cookin', but it's MY version of Home Cookin'. And, as long as my family is together and around the table, it doesn't really ME.

Thank God For The President

An 82-year old lady says that Obama is amazing and is Rebuilding The American Dream. What an interesting perspective...

That is right - I will say it, "THANK GOD FOR THE PRESIDENT."

1. He destroyed the Clinton Political Machine - Driving a stake thru
the heart of Hillary's Presidential aspirations - something that no
Republican was ever able to do. Remember when a Hillary Presidency
scared the daylights out of you!

2. He killed off the Kennedy Dynasty - No more Kennedys trolling
Washington looking for booze and women wanting rides home. American
women and Freedom are safer tonight!

3. He is destroying the Democratic Party before our eyes!

Dennis Moore had never lost a race - quit

Evan Bayh had never lost a race - quit

Byron Dorgan had never lost a race - quit

Harry Reid - soon to be GONE

These are just a handful of the Democrats whose political careers Obama
has destroyed! By the end of 2010, dozens more will be gone.

In December of 2008, the Democrats were on the rise. In the last two
election cycles, they had picked up 14 senate seats and 52 house
Seats. The press was touting the death of the Conservative Movement and
the Republican Party. In just one year, Obama put a stop to all
of this and will probably give the House, if not the Senate, back to
The Republicans.

4. He has completely exposed liberals and progressives for what they
Are. Every Generation seems to need to re-learn the lesson on why
They should never actually put liberals in charge. He is bringing
Home the lesson very well.

Liberals tax, borrow and spend - check

Liberals won't bring themselves to protect America - check

Liberals want to take over the economy - check

Liberals think they know what is best for everyone - check

Liberals aren't happy till they are running YOUR life - check

5. He has brought more Americans back to conservatism than anyone
Since Reagan. In one year, he has rejuvenated the Conservative
movement and brought out to the streets millions of Freedom Loving
Americans. Name me one other time in your life that you saw your
Friends and neighbors this interested in taking back America!

6. His amazing leadership has sparked the greatest period of sales of
Firearms and ammunition this country has seen. Law abiding citizens
have rallied and have provided a "stimulus" to the sporting goods
Field while other industries have failed faded or moved off-shore.

7. In all honesty, one year ago I was more afraid than I have been in
My life. Not of the economy, but of the direction our country was
Going. I thought Americans had forgotten what this country was all
About. My neighbors, friends and strangers proved to me that my lack
of confidence of the Greatness and Wisdom of the American people was
Flat wrong.

8. When the American People wake up, no smooth talking teleprompter
Reader can fool them!

Barack Obama woke up these Great Americans! Again, I want to say,
"Thank You Barack Obama!"

This is exactly the kind of hope and change we desperately needed!

Twenty States Get Greenlight to Proceed With Overturning Obamacare

By Ashby Jones

A federal judge in Pensacola, Fla., has ruled that 20 U.S. states can proceed with their lawsuit seeking to overturn President Barack Obama’s landmark healthcare reform law.

Click here for the 65-page opinion; here for all earlier LB coverage of the suit, which was filed the same day Obama signed the bill into law.

U.S. District Judge Roger Vinson had already indicated at a hearing last month that he would reject parts of a motion by the Justice Department to dismiss the lawsuit, led by Florida and 19 other states.

And today he did just that. Vinson actually dismissed several of the plaintiffs’ claims, but made two rather large rulings in their favor.

First, Vinson shot down the Justice Department’s argument that the individual mandate — the provision in the law that requires every American to own health insurance by 2014 — can be viewed as a tax. The government had made the argument for two reasons: 1) to argue that the individual mandate is constitutional under the Taxing and Spending Clause of the Constitution and 2) to argue that the Tax Anti-Injunction Act thereby applies.

Wrote Vinson:

To summarize the foregoing, it “clearly appears” from the statute itself . . . that Congress did not intend to impose a tax when it imposed the penalty. To hold otherwise would require me to look beyond the plain words of the statute. I would have to ignore that Congress: (i) specifically changed the term in previous incarnations of the statute from “tax” to “penalty;” (ii) used the term “tax” in describing the several other exactions provided for in the Act; (iii) specifically relied on and identified its Commerce Clause power and not its taxing power; (iv) eliminated traditional IRS enforcement methods for the failure to pay the “tax;” and (v) failed to identify in the legislation any revenue that would be raised from it, notwithstanding that at least seventeen other revenue-generating provisions were specifically so identified.

Second, and perhaps more importantly, Vinson declined to dismiss the plaintiffs’ claim that Congress, in passing the individual mandate, overstepped the authority granted to it by the Commerce Clause, which allows Congress the power to regulate interstate commerce.

Wrote Vinson:

At this stage in the litigation, this is not even a close call. . . This case law is instructive, but ultimately inconclusive because the Commerce Clause and Necessary and Proper Clause have never been applied in such a manner before. The power that the individual mandate seeks to harness is simply without prior precedent.

. . .

Vinson noted the difference between regulating an economic activity and attempting to regulate an economic non-activity. Most Commerce Clause cases deal with the former, not the latter.

[I]n this case we are dealing with something very different. The individual mandate applies across the board. People have no choice and there is no way to avoid it. Those who fall under the individual mandate either comply with it, or they are penalized. It is not based on an activity that they make the choice to undertake. Rather, it is based solely on citizenship and on being alive.

. . .

Of course, to say that something is “novel” and “unprecedented” does notnecessarily mean that it is “unconstitutional” and “improper.” There may be a first time for anything. But, at this stage of the case, the plaintiffs have most definitely stated a plausible claim with respect to this cause of action.

Vinson said the case would continue as scheduled. He had previously set a hearing for Dec. 16.

You Can’t Tax the Rich Enough to Close the Deficit | The Foundry: Conservative Policy News.

I'm sorry. But, I can't help but feel this is all just Obama's (and his supporters) way of levelling the damn playing field. Yep, sooner or later, everyone will be "equal" and will just be slaves to the State. Work, sleep, work, sleep, work, sleep. That's Communism folks! No way to "better" your life, no way to "get ahead" for your family and your children's future! It will all be planned out for you, no need to think. The State will know and determine what is best for you, and will provide it. But, you will basically be a robot going through the motions of living, without actually living. There will be no freedom and no liberty to be who God created you to be. (Afterall, God doesn't exit in the Communist philosophy.} You will be stunted. There will be no government, "By the people, for the people." No. There will only be a government of a few elites who will rule over the masses. True communism is a joke...there is really no such thing. Because everyone CAN'T be equal! Who would keep the Communist system going? I'll tell you. The few "elites" in power. While most of the people will suffer, there will always be those in power with wealth and control. Is that really what Americans want? I don't think so.

Please, I beg you, get out and vote November 2nd! YOU are the difference! Without you, without YOUR voice, without YOU following the issues and candidates, the American system of government will fall to the wayside and fail. Then you WON'T have a voice, and the government will no longer be yours.

Remember, those in government work for YOU! Not the other way around. Wrap your brain around that, and you will see how upside down the current state of our government is! You are paying THEIR (the politicians) big fat salaries, for doing what? That is something you'll have to decide...and determine if they are truly working FOR you? Or, are you working for them? Are you just a means to their end...their wealth, control, and power?
Remember..."When the people fear their government, there is tyranny; when the government fears the people, there is liberty." ~Thomas Jefferson
