I don't agree about Iran being a peaceful nation. Over the years, they have sponsored a lot of terrorism, especially against our soldiers in Iraq.

What are you personally willing to give up, in order to cut the budget deficit? Are you willing to pay more taxes? Forego Social Security benefits?

Acting as though Obama alone is the culprit for overspending, is unduly simplistic.

If you want me to tell you what I would give up, you'll have to first let me know what I got for the trillions of dollars that Obama has added to the debt.

Ever been to Detroit? The city relies very very heavily on the automotive industry. For that matter, so does much of Michigan. I'm no great fan of the U.S. automotive industry. But they've done rather well at recovering some measure of financial health, Ford in particular (though it didn't take rescue funds as GM and Chrysler did). BTW, the automotive bailouts were not an Obama enterprise so laying blame at the feet of unions and ascribing cronyism with the White House won't work.

You do know that the AIG bailout was also a product of BushCo, right? We were told that if it failed, took big investment banks along, and locked up the credit markets, the whole U.S. economy would fail.

I kinda thought there wouldn't be much chance of personal sacrifice. It's easier by far to expect others to go first, at least when it comes to giving up benefits. But it would make some sense for those who believe the nation is in dire budgetary straits to ask, "what do I do?" or "how can I be part of the solution?"

Scaring themselves?





Obama, since he was born of a Muslim father, was born a Muslim by Islamic law.
There is no doubt he is STILL a Muslim.

Just a few quotes from his speeches:

"Islam has a proud tradition of tolerance."
Barack Hussein Obama

"it is important for Western countries to avoid impeding Muslim citizens from practicing religion as they see fit"
Barack Hussein Obama

"We will convey our deep appreciation for the Islamic faith, which has done so much over so many centuries to shape the world for the better, including my own country."
Barack Hussein Obama

"The contribution of Muslims to the United States are too long to catalog because Muslims are so interwoven into the fabric of our communities and our country"
Barack Hussein Obama

"I have lived in a Muslim-majority country... I know, because I am one of them."
Barack Hussein Obama

"As a student of history, I also know civilization’s debt to Islam."
Barack Hussein Obama

"Islam has demonstrated through words and deeds the possibilities of religious tolerance and racial equality."
Barack Hussein Obama

"And since our founding, American Muslims have enriched the United States."
Barack Hussein Obama

"And I consider it part of my responsibility as President of the United States to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear."
Barack Hussein Obama

"Moreover, freedom in America is indivisible from the freedom to practice one’s religion. That is why there is a mosque in every state of our union, and over 1,200 mosques within our borders. That is why the U.S. government has gone to court to protect the right of women and girls to wear the hijab, and to punish those who would deny it."
Barack Hussein Obama

"We are not nor have we even been at war with Islam"
Barack Hussein Obama


This is what the Marxist/Muslim
has done with American tax dollars while
Americans lose their jobs and homes-
and as he prepares to stick Americans with
the highest tax in history!


Obama’s 2009 Supplemental Appropriations for Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Pandemic Flu was revised and "passed by the full committee." Not sure what the next step is, but based on the summary, it gives billions
of U.S. taxpayer dollars to countries and entities that support Sharia law and/or harbor, hide and support those who want to destroy the U.S. and our allies.
Read the summary from David Obey’s office that was quietly released last week with nary a word from any media.

• $3.6 billion, matching the request, to expand and improve capabilities of the Afghan security forces

• $400 million, as requested, to build the counterinsurgency capabilities of the Pakistani security forces

• Afghanistan: $1.52 billion, $86 million above the request

• West Bank and Gaza: $665 million in bilateral economic, humanitarian, and security assistance for the West Bank and Gaza

• Jordan: $250 million, $250 million above the request, including $100 million for economic and $150 million for security assistance

• Egypt: $360 million, $310 million above the request, including $50 million for economic assistance, $50 million for border security, and $260 million for security assistance

• Pakistan: $1.9 billion, $591 million above the request

• Iraq: $968 million, $336 million above the request

• Oversight: $20 million, $13 million above the request, to expand oversight capacity of the State Department, USAID, and the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan to review programs in Afghanistan, Pakistan and Iraq

• Lebanon: $74 million

• International Food Assistance: $500 million, $200 million above the request, for PL 480 international food assistance to alleviate suffering during the global economic crisis

• Refugee Assistance: $343 million, $50 million above the request, …including humanitarian assistance for Gaza. Funding for the UN Relief and Works Agency programs in the West Bank and Gaza is limited to $119 million (Note: Gaza = Hamas)

• Disaster Assistance: $200 million to avert famines and provide life-saving assistance during natural disasters and for internally displaced people around the world, including Somalia, Zimbabwe, Ethiopia, the Middle East and South Asia

• Peacekeeping: $837 million for United Nations peacekeeping operations, including an expanded mission in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and a new mission in Chad and the Central African Republic

• Department of Justice: $17 million, matching the request, for counter-terrorism activities and to provide training and assistance for the Iraqi criminal justice system
The mainstream media remains silent on this but the International News has now picked up the story
— and then there is Obama’s $108 billion IMF bailout scheme
in addition to the Supplemental.

And THIS is what Obama is doing to American taxpayers:
PDF Version:

Obama gives your tax dollars to rebuild Muslim mosques around the world

According to the Associated Press, the Obama administration will give away nearly $6 million of American tax dollars to restore 63 historic and cultural sites, including Islamic mosques and minarets, in 55 nations. See the State Department document here.

24 Why isn’t Barack Obama still a member of the Illinois bar and where are all of the relevant documents?

25 Why isn’t Michelle Obama still a member of the Illinois bar, after only about four years of practice, and where are all of the relevant documents?
Anyone who cares about their country would be very concerned that a POTUS had hidden every scrap of information of his life that he possibly could.

Obama said the Muslim call to prayer
is "one of the prettiest sounds on earth,"
in an interview with Nicholas Kristof,
in The New York Times. Kristof described Obama’s recitation of the Muslim call to prayer,
the Adhan, "with a first-class [Arabic]

The opening lines of the Adhan (Azaan) is the Shahada:
"Allah is Supreme! Allah is Supreme!
Allah is Supreme! Allah is Supreme!
I witness that there is no god but Allah
I witness that there is no god but Allah
I witness that Muhammad is his prophet... "
According to Islamic scholars, reciting the Shahada, the Muslim declaration of faith, makes one a Muslim. This simple yet profound statement expresses a Muslim’s complete acceptance of, and total commitment to, the message of Islam.

Obama belonged to Rev. Wright’s (a former Muslim) church for twenty years. Many congregants are Muslims.
• Obama’s said that the U.S. is "one of the largest Muslim countries in the world."
• Obama holds Muslim celebrations in the WH but canceled the National Day of Prayer.
• Obama holds Muslim celebrations in the WH but canceled the National Day of Prayer.
• President Obama’s religious adviser, Eboo Patel, once deemed the United States "the ideal place for the renewal of Islam."

• Obama falsely attributes Muslim participation in the founding of America.
• Obama required that the cross be covered when he gave a speech at Notre Dame.
• Christian symbol covered up during Obama’s Georgetown speech
• Obama’s first major speech in office was a "Muslim outreach" speech in Cairo Egypt.
Obama gave strong support to the Cordoba House community center and mosque to be built at the Ground Zero site of Sep. 11, 2001 at a dinner celebrating the day’s end of the first day of Ramadan at the WH.
• Obama tasked NASA with a mission of "Muslim outreach."
• Obama referred to his faith as "my Muslim faith" gaffe in an interview with George Stephanopolous.
• Pushes Islamic freedom of religion but not Jewish or Christian freedoms. Several weeks ago he told Israel NOT to build settlements in East Jerusalem. But OK to build that Mosque at Ground Zero.

More evidence that Obama is a Muslim from his own speeches (video)

• The FIRST thing Obama did as a newly elected Illinois State Senator was to attempt to declare a Muslim holiday. Obama sponsored Bill SR0110 in the 90th General Assembly to declare November 1, 1997 to be Islamic Community Center Day. It did not pass.

Obama appoints Muslims to key security


Foreign Minister Ahmed Abul Gheit said
he had a one-on-one meeting with Obama,
where Obama told him that
He was still a Muslim,
and that he was sympathetic towards
the Muslim agenda.

Little known facts about Obama:
In 2001, Obama sponsored Illinois Senate Bill 750 creating the "Halal Food Act," providing for inspections by the Department of Agriculture to ensure that all food labeled Halal is prepared according to Islamic law.

This act plays into Islamization. Here’s how it works and how Halal food plays a role:
"From 5% on they exercise an inordinate influence in proportion to their percentage of the population.
They will push for the introduction of halaal (clean by Islamic standards) food, thereby securing food preparation jobs for Muslims. They will increase pressure on supermarket chains to feature it on their shelves — along with threats for failure to comply










Do not use with extensive rewording:

When the founding fathers thought of America, their little baby, the last thing they wanted was an invasive force to stifle, smother it, and then overwhelm it and kill it.

Most people do not recognize that what happens in a mosque is sedition. Pure and simple. Islam is not just a "religion", it is a cult. Larger than that though, it is a political system, it is it’s own government, a economic system (which includes funding new mosque construction), its judicial...all wrapped up in the word sharia. This is inclusive of its military (jihadis) all rolled into one with one intent ...and that is to rule wherever they take root. It is a invasive, systemic infection looking to take over the host once it has quantum.

This is not just a "religion", but something that cloaks itself in those terms so it should not be given the same treatment contemplated under the first amendment. The Korans Sharia rules are to consume whatever government there is wherever it goes.
Islam is political, and it’s goal is to supplant and replace. Globally.

When the founding fathers thought of America, their little baby, the last thing they wanted was an invasive force to stifle, smother it, and then overwhelm it and kill it.

The sooner America learns this , the better. Some know and many do not, but it is a threat to everything America knows.








The majority are 'birthers'

Alex Pareene says fifty-one percent of people who say they're likely to participate in a Republican primary next year are Birthers, according to a new poll from Public Policy Polling.

I guess that begs the question, when would you consider the government debt a problem?

On the same subject, I believe that the sentiment of the country right now is that our government is running up too much debt and we want it stopped. I think that was a big issue in the last election, and voters made a clear statement that they don't like what is going on in Washington. So far, the Obama administration is largely ignoring this message.

Whether or not it is an economic problem yet is not the issue. The people of this country are not comfortable with the current level of debt and the rate of growth of said debt.

"Resist, we much. We must, and we much. About that, be committed."
