Most of us want to look up to the president, to respect him makes it far easier to respect the office, all of which reflects on our government. I think Obama would probably be a fine guy to shoot a few hoops with and to have a beer with afterward, so long as he didn’t light up a Camel and blow it in my face. There are times when I think he tries too hard to be a good guy, which I think is an obvious appeal to his base, young people to a great extent, most of whom have not had a chance to be subjected to an income and other taxes which take half of what they make. The other part of his base are misguided compassionestas who think they owe those who don’t work a living, but want to take care of them with other people’s money, or those on the receiving end of that misguided compassion.
Self-serve yourself…into poverty!
It looks as if the conservative element might just worm it’s way into again having a little influence into how this government is run, and I hope they’ll have the gonads to run it, not continue to ruin it…although there’s little room to ruin more.
Conservative: tending or disposed to maintain existing views, conditions, or institutions. Marked by moderation or caution.

If you think “separation of church and state” is in the Constitution, you’re dead wrong. No where does it broach the subject. If fact, in Jefferson’s autobiography, he speaks of only two votes separating us from having a “national church,” the Anglican church, during the formation of the Articles of Confederation. In fact, if you can watch the video (search on youtube) U. S. Capitol Tour with David Barton, which is shown below as a hyperlink, you’ll learn that the capitol building was actually used to hold church services at one time. When Jefferson was president, he attended services in the capitol rotunda, where a number of paintings celebrate our Christian heritage. It’s time we celebrated it, and if I may say, to HELL with the secularists. This well done video has had over 2,000,000 hits. Someone in this country is interested in our Christian heritage.
Here’s a look at what’s happening in America from a guy who knows, and who cares….
What could be bad about sharing the U.S. with other cultures? Are we not the melting pot of the world? Do not other cultures have and offer so, so much of value?
Of course they do.
But is that the question? No. The question is, what’s great about America, and do we want to keep her the greatest country in the world, the go-to country in the world? The country millions and millions, if not billons, want to call their own?
