He destroyed the Clinton Political Machine “ Driving a stake thru the heart of Hillary's Presidential aspirations“ something no Republican was ever able to do. Remember when a Hillary Presidency scared the daylights out of you!
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!
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 Reed - GONE
These are just a handful of the Democrats that whose political careers Obama has destroyed! By the end of 2010 dozens more will be!
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 one year Obama put a stop to all of this and will probably give the house, if not the senate back to the Republicans.
He has completely exposed liberals and progressives for what they are. Every Generation seems to need to relearn 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
He has brought more Americans back to conservatism than anyone since
In One year he 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!
In all honesty, one year ago I was more afraid than I had ever 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, strangers proved to me that my lack of confidence of the Greatness and Wisdom of the American people was flat out wrong.
When the American People wake up, no smooth talking teleprompter reader can fool them!
Barak Obama woke up these Great Americans
Again, I want say Thank you Barak Obama!

Everyone in my apartment complex knew who Ugly was. Ugly was the resident tomcat. Ugly loved three things in this world: Fighting, eating garbage and making love.
The combination of these things combined with a life spent outside had their effect on Ugly. To start with, he had only one eye. He was also missing an ear, his left foot had been broken and healed at an unnatural angle, making him look like he was always turning the corner.
His tail had been lost leaving only the smallest stub, which he would constantly jerk and twitch. Ugly would have been a dark gray striped tabby except for sores covering his head and shoulders. Every time someone saw Ugly there was the same reaction “That is one ugly cat.”
Children were warned not to touch him, adults squirted him when he tried to come in their homes. Ugly always had the same reaction. If you turned the hose on him he would stand getting soaked until you gave up and quit. If you threw things at him he would curl his lanky body around his feet in forgiveness.
When he spied children he would come running meowing and bump his head against their hands, begging for their love. If someone picked him up he would begin sucking on their shirt, earrings, whatever he could find.
One day Ugly shared his love with a neighbor’s huskies. They did not respond kindly and Ugly was badly mauled. I heard his screams and tried to rush to his aid. By the time I got there Ugly’s sad life was almost at an end.
Ugly lay in a wet circle, his back legs and lower back twisted out of shape, a tear in the white strip of fur down his front. As I picked him up to carry him home I could hear him wheezing and gasping and feel him struggling. I must be hurting him terribly, I thought. Then I felt a familiar tugging sucking sensation on my ear.
Ugly, in so much pain, suffering and dying was trying to suckle my ear. I pulled him closer to me and he bumped the palm of my hand with his head. Then he turned his one eye towards me and I heard the sound of purring. Even in the greatest pain that ugly battle scarred cat was asking only for a little affection. Perhaps some compassion.
At that moment I thought Ugly was the most beautiful, loving creature I had ever seen. Never once did he try to bite or scratch, get away or struggle. Ugly just looked up at me completely trusting in me to relieve his pain.
Ugly died in my arms before I could get inside but I sat and held him for a long time afterwards thinking about how one scarred, deformed little stray could so alter my opinion about what it means to have true pureness of spirit. To love so totally and truly.
Ugly taught me more about giving and compassion than a thousand books, lectures or talk show specials ever could and for that I will always be thankful. He had been scarred on the outside but I was scarred on the inside and it was time for me to move on and learn to love truly and deeply.
It was time to give my all to those I cared for. Many want to be richer, more successful, well liked, beautiful. But for me I will try to always be like Ugly.

1 - First Important Lesson - Cleaning Lady.
During my second month of college, our professor
Gave us a pop quiz. I was a conscientious student
The last one:
"What is the first name of the woman who cleans the school?"
Surely this was some kind of joke. I had seen the
Cleaning woman several times. She was tall,
Dark-haired and in her 50's, but how would I know her name?
I handed in my paper, leaving the last question
Blank. Just before class ended, one student asked if
The last question would count toward our quiz grade.
"Absolutely, " said the professor. "In your careers,
You will meet many people. All are significant.. They
Deserve your attention and care, even if all you do
Is smile and say "hello."
I've never forgotten that lesson.. I also learned her
Name was Dorothy .
2. - Second Important Lesson - Pickup in the Rain
One night, at 11:30 p.m., an older African American
Woman was standing on the side of an Alabama highway
Trying to endure a lashing rain storm. Her car had
Broken down and she desperately needed a ride.
Soaking wet, she decided to flag down the next car.
A young white man stopped to help her, generally
Unheard of in those conflict-filled 1960's. The man
Took her to safety, helped her get assistance and
Put her into a taxicab.
She seemed to be in a big hurry, but wrote down his
Address and thanked him. Seven days went by and a
Knock came on the man's door. To his surprise, a
Giant console color TV was delivered to his home. A
Special note was attached.
"Thank you so much for assisting me on the highway
The other night. The rain drenched not only my
Clothes, but also my spirits. Then you came along.
Because of you, I was able to make it to my dying
Husband's' bedside just before he passed away... God
Bless you for helping me and unselfishly serving
3 - Third Important Lesson - Always remember those
In the days when an ice cream sundae cost much less,
A 10-year-old boy entered a hotel coffee shop and
Sat at a table. A waitress put a glass of water in
Front of him.
"How much is an ice cream sundae?" he asked.
"Fifty cents," replied the waitress.
The little boy pulled his hand out of his pocket and
Studied the coins in it.
"Well, how much is a plain dish of ice cream?" he inquired.
By now more people were waiting for a table and the
Waitress was growing impatient.
"Thirty-five cents," she brusquely replied.
The little boy again counted his coins.
"I'll have the plain ice cream," he said.
The waitress brought the ice cream, put the bill on
The table and walked away The boy finished the ice
Cream, paid the cashier and left.. When the waitress
Came back, she began to cry as she wiped down the
Table. There, placed neatly beside the empty dish,
Were two nickels and five pennies..
You see, he couldn't have the sundae, because he had
To have enough left to leave her a tip.
4 - Fourth Important Lesson. - The obstacle in Our Path.
In ancient times, a King had a boulder placed on a
Roadway. Then he hid himself and watched to see if
Anyone would remove the huge rock. Some of the
King's' wealthiest merchants and courtiers came by
And simply walked around it. Many loudly blamed the
King for not keeping the roads clear, but none did
Anything about getting the stone out of the way.
Then a peasant came along carrying a load of
Vegetables. Upon approaching the boulder, the
peasant laid down his burden and tried to move the
stone to the side of the road. After much pushing
and straining, he finally succeeded. After the
peasant picked up his load of vegetables, he noticed
a purse lying in the road where the boulder had
been. The purse contained many gold coins and a note
from the King indicating that the gold was for the
person who removed the boulder from the roadway. The
peasant learned what many of us never understand!
Every obstacle presents an opportunity to improve
5 - Fifth Important Lesson - Giving When it Counts...
Many years ago, when I worked as a volunteer at a
hospital, I got to know a little girl named Liz who
was suffering from a rare & serious disease. Her only
chance of recovery appeared to be a blood
transfusion from her 5-year old brother, who had
miraculously survived the same disease and had
developed the antibodies needed to combat the
illness. The doctor explained the situation to her
little brother, and asked the little boy if he would
be willing to give his blood to his sister.
I saw him hesitate for only a moment before taking a
deep breath and saying, "Yes I'll do it if it will save
her." As the transfusion progressed, he lay in bed
next to his sister and smiled, as we all did, seeing
the color returning to her cheek. Then his face
grew pale and his smile faded.
He looked up at the doctor and asked with a
trembling voice, "Will I start to die right away".
Being young, the little boy had misunderstood the
doctor; he thought he was going to have to give his
sister all of his blood in order to save her.
WE ARE AWESOME!!!! OUR LIFE IS LIVING PROOF!!!!
TO ALL THE KIDS WHO SURVIVED THE 1940’s, 50’s, 60‚ and 70’s!!
First, we survived being born to mothers who smoked and/or drank while they were pregnant.
They took aspirin, ate blue cheese dressing, tuna from a can and didn’t get tested for diabetes.
Then after that trauma, we were put to sleep on our tummies in baby cribs covered with bright colored lead-base paints.
We had no need for childproof lids on medicine bottles, locks on doors or cabinets and when we rode our bikes, we had baseball caps not helmets on our heads.
As infants & children, we would ride in cars without car seats, no booster seats, no seat belts, no air bags, bald tires and sometimes no brakes.
Riding in the back of a pick- up truck on a warm day was always a special treat.
We drank water from the garden hose and not from a bottle.
We shared one soft drink with four friends, from one bottle and no one actually died from this.
We could drive bikes without helmets.
We ate cupcakes made with Lard, white bread, real butter and bacon. We drank FLAV-OR- AID made with real white sugar. And, we weren’t overweight. WHY?
Because we were always outside playing….that’s why!
We would leave home in the morning and play all day, as long as we were back when the streetlights came on..
No one was able to reach us all day. And, we were OKAY.
We would spend hours building our go-carts out of scraps and then ride them down the hill, only to find out we forgot the brakes. After running into the bushes a few times, we learned to solve the problem
We did not have Play stations, Nintendo’s and X-boxes. There were no video games, no 150 channels on cable, no video movies or DVD’s, no surround-sound or CD’s, no cell phones, no personal computers, no Internet and no chat rooms.
We would play in the streets, with balls, ropes; we crayon painted games on the road way and cars would slow down
WE HAD FRIENDS and we went outside and found them!
We fell out of trees, got cut, broke bones and teeth and there were no lawsuits from these accidents.
We would get spankings with wooden spoons, switches, ping pong paddles, or just a bare hand and no one would call child services to report abuse.
We ate worms and mud pies made from dirt, and the worms did not live in us forever.
We were given BB guns for our 10th birthdays, made up games with sticks and tennis balls and, although we were told it would happen, we did not put out very many eyes.
We rode bikes or walked to a friend’s house and knocked on the door or rang the bell, or just walked in and talked to them.
Little League had tryouts and not everyone made the team. Those who didn’t had to learn to deal with disappointment. Imagine that!!
The idea of a parent bailing us out if we broke the law was unheard of. They actually sided with the law!
These generations have produced some of the best risk-takers, problem solvers and inventors in history.
The past 40 years have been an explosion of innovation and new ideas. What can kids today do besides push buttons?
We had freedom, failure, success and responsibility, and we learned how to deal with it all.
The guys respected girls and walked them home.
We had vinyl records with music and beautifully designed sleeves that were pieces of art.
If YOU are one of us, CONGRATULATIONS!
and you might want to share this with others who have had the luck to grow up as kids, before Wall Street and the government took all of our money and regulated so much of our lives for “our own good”.
And while you are at it, have your kids read it, so they will know how brave and lucky their parents were.
