We’re going to start something today, that we’ll be doing every once in a while. It will be a column of short political facts, and comments from a good, good friend of mine, AP.
AP is a veteran of WWII, a very successful businessman, and has rubbed shoulders through the years with some very well to do, and powerful people. AP is a talented artist, and I’m beginning to wonder if there is anything AP can’t do!
He used to do the “Nose art” on the bombers and fighters in his spare time during the war, and made a pretty good “chunk of change,” by doing so. One of his nose paintings ended up in an Air Force Museum, although I’m not sure which one, but I’ll find out for you. The title of this particular painting is, “Shoo, Shoo Baby.”
AP and I have known each other probably a couple years or better now, and just really liked each other…we just hit it off, as you know happens sometimes in your lives. He’s just one super guy, and is as nice as the day is long.
We do have a problem with each other, and this is simply…he’s a dern Yankee, and I’m a redneck! We have a blast going back and forth with each other over this. He claims he can’t understand a dern thing I say, and swears he needs an interpreter to decipher my “Southern drawl,” for him! He keeps saying, “Slow down, speak clearly, and MAYBE I can understand enough of what you’re saying to at least possibly be in the same conversation!”
I’ve picked up a Yankee saying or two myself, and I just throw one of these up to him when he starts with me. This being…Fah-git-about-it. He just dies laughing when I tell him this.
For his birthday I sent him a Jeff Foxworthy “redneck Calendar.” He says he hung the calendar, in the only appropriate place in his house…the bathroom. I told him that was a good idea! Because of his age most of his time is spent there!
I’ve written different redneck sayings, and words for him to take some time, study them, and eventually he may become an “Honorary Redneck,” if he practices hard enough.
He asked how he could tell if it was starting to rub off on him some? I told him simple. When the day came while walking his dog, and they both stopped and peed under the same tree, well, he was learning.
AP is a true conservative, who is very concerned with the direction our Country is headed, and does some writing from time to time on this subject. He used to do a weekly column titled, “The Revolution,” but his health has backed him off this a little, but he still researches and writes, just not as much.
I find all AP has to say informative and very appropriate, and we need more like him. He is concerned just as we all are with this election coming up in 2012, and is trying to do all he can from his standpoint.
I know you guys will like hearing what he has to say, so, let’s take a look…
OBAMA CARE………the Federal Court of Appeals just ruled against the bill……next step the Supreme Court …..
WALL STREET……this past week the Dow index, for the first time in its 145 year history that it registered over 400 points in 4 consecutive days…..
OBAMA STICKS TO HIS STIMULUS SCRIPT … In 1993 comedy DAVE, a small town impersonator, is called on to pretend to be the actual President of the United States when the commander-chief takes ill. DAVE, steps into the White House, takes his new role too far, and with wild eyed innocence, promises America “I am initiating a program that that will insure a job for every American who wants one”…….a short time ago in Holland, Michigan, President Obama made a striking similar pledge: ” Over the coming weeks, I am putting out more proposals, week by week, that will help businesses hire and put people back to work.”
It’s any one’s guess if president Obama is taking a page out of DAVE’S playbook, hoping that the magic of Hollywood would resonate with Americans. Only DAVE, President Obama. Former economic adviser Ms Romer (who still believes that the failed $787 billion bill was too small) believes that only the Federal Government can create jobs and stimulate economic growth.
WHY DID AMERICA RECEIVE A CREDIT DOWN GRADE
…..ANSWER…..Undermining our Legacy of Liberty…..”No pecuniary consideration is more urgent, than the regular redemyion and the discharge of public debt, or none can delay be more injurious, or an economy of time more valuable….Cherish public credit. One method of preserving it is to use it sparingly as possible: avoiding occasions of expense (and) avoiding likewise accumulation of debt…..not ungenerously throwing upon posterity, the burden which we ourselves should bear” George Washington December 3, 1793.
Clearly in denial as to the underlying reasons for the downgrade, Obama claimed that the ‘world financial markets, “still believe our credit is still AAA, and world’s investors agree…(message from Planet Obama to Earth) and he concluded by shooting the messenger, U.S. Treasury Secretary Geithner who said ” the SP showed terrible judgement, and a complete lack of knowledge of the basic U.S. fiscal budget math”
Is Obama smart ? Obama thinks he is the political equivalent of Charles Lindbergh and Chick Yeager, ” I am a better speech writer than my speech writers. I know more about policies on any particular issue than my policy directors. And I will tell you right now (in2008) that I am a better political director than any political director.”
Who is to blame…according to Sen. Kerry, Sen. Leahy, Advisor Axelrod, Governor Howard Dean, Martin Frost, Sen. Charles Schumer, NY Times Maureen Dowd, Times columnist Thomas Friedman, who is quoted” if sane Republicans do not stand up to this Hezbollah faction in our midst, the Tea Party will take the GOP on a suicide mission”
In conclusion, old Tom Jefferson said “What country can preserve its liberties, if it’s rulers are not warned from time to time, that the people preserve the spirit of resistance. Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right to the facts, pardon them and pacify them. The tree of Liberty must be refreshed from time to time, with the blood of patriots and tyrants”
And AP is saying “that’s all folks, see ya’ll in the funny papers…”
If you notice, I am making progress with AP. Look how he closed out…see ya’ll in the funny papers. This used to be a no-no!
