Outrage, Done with Eloquence and Indignation, backed by Facts

... The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue
Washington, DC 20500
Mr. Obama:
I have had it with you and your administration, sir. Your conduct on your recent trip overseas has convinced me that you are not an adequate representative of the United States of America collectively or of me personally.
You are so obsessed with appeasing the Europeans and the Muslim world that you have abdicated the responsibilities of the President of the United States of America . You are responsible to the citizens of the United States . You are not responsible to the peoples of any other country on earth.
I personally resent that you go around the world apologizing for the United States telling Europeans that we are arrogant and do not care about their status in the world. Sir, what do you think the First World War and the Second World War were all about if not the consideration of the peoples of Europe ? Are you brain dead? What do you think the Marshall Plan was all about? Do you not understand or know the history of the 20th century?
Where do you get off telling a Muslim country that the United States does not consider itself a Christian country? Have you not read the Declaration of Independence or the Constitution of the United States ? This country was founded on Judeo-Christian ethics and the principles governing this country, at least until you came along, come directly from this heritage. Do you not understand this?
Your bowing to the king of Saudi Arabia is an affront to all Americans. Our President does not bow down to anyone, let alone the king of Saudi Arabia .... You didn't show Great Britain , our best and one of our oldest allies, the respect they deserve yet you bow down to the king of Saudi Arabia .. How dare you, sir! How dare you!
You can't find the time to visit the graves of our greatest generation because you don't want to offend the Germans but make time to visit a mosque in Turkey ...... You offended our dead and every veteran when you give the Germans more respect than the people who saved the German people from themselves. What's the matter with you? I am convinced that you and the members of your administration have the historical and intellectual depth of a mud puddle and should be ashamed of yourselves, all of you.
You are so self-righteously offended by the big bankers and the American automobile manufacturers yet do nothing about the real thieves in this situation, Mr. Dodd, Mr. Frank, Franklin Raines, Jamie Gorelic, the Fannie Mae bonuses, and the Freddie Mac bonuses. What do you intend to do about them? Anything? I seriously doubt it.
What about the U.S. House members passing out $9.1 million in bonuses to their staff members on top of the $2.5 million in automatic pay raises that lawmakers gave themselves? I understand the average House aide got a 17% bonus. I took a 5% cut in my pay to save jobs with my employer. You haven't said anything about that. Who authorized that? I surely didn't!
Executives at Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac will be receiving $210 million in bonuses over an eighteen-month period, that's $45 million more than the AIG bonuses. In fact, Fannie and Freddie executives have already been awarded $51 million not a bad take. Who authorized that and why haven't you expressed your outrage at this group who are largely responsible for the economic mess we have right now?
I resent that you take me and my fellow citizens as brain-dead and not caring about what you idiots do. We are watching what you are doing and we are getting increasingly fed up with all of you.
I also want you to know that I personally find just about everything you do and say to be offensive to every one of my sensibilities. I promise you that I will work tirelessly to see that you do not get a chance to spend two terms destroying my beautiful country.
Every real American
P.S. I rarely ask that emails be 'passed around'.................PLEASE SEND THIS TO YOUR EMAIL LIST......it's past time for all Americans to wake up!

Math Can Eat Your Lunch

The school year may have just started, but something tells me the students taking Pre-A.P. Math Team Algebra II at Homewood High School in Alabama already know it’s going to be an interesting year.
On the first day of class, students received a three-page syllabus detailing the course outline, classroom expectations, and a breakdown of how students will be graded.
tim hurry homewood high schoolThe teacher this year is Mr. Hurry. But as he explains in his syllabus, “When you graduate, you can call me whatever you want.”
And the syllabus only gets funnier, as AL.com reveals.
Mr. Hurry has quite high expectations for his classroom, and he’s not kidding around.
You will have to work your tail off, especially early on, to get the hang of what is expected and, therefore, to do well. In the past, other teachers may have tried to frighten you by saying this and they may have been bluffing.
I, on the other hand, am for real. If you don’t plan on doing the work at a very high level, day in and day out, then you are in for a very rude awakening. Are you hearing me?
And that seriousness carries into homework.
Expect homework to be given every night. How often? EVERY NIGHT. Are you sure you are coming to grips with this? EVERY NIGHT. If you are the type of student who, in the past, has said, “I don’t do homework,” then please change your habits or you will get hammered.
While he’s at it, he may as well tackle another habit – swearing.
I will not swear/cuss/whatsoever in class (I will save all of mine for the ride home on hwy 280 – just kidding). … I would appreciate it if you would not use inappropriate language, either, while you are in my classroom.
I’m not suggesting that I think less of you because you might occasionally swear or that I’m completely above this sort of behavior myself (I’m Scott/Irish/Italian & my father was in the military – I’m very versed with this kind of “language”).
I’m just saying THIS classroom is not the place for it. Also, if something I say happens to offend you, please bring it to my attention after class and I will try my best to accommodate you. If the whole idea of math is offensive to you, well, sorry.
He really wants to get along with everyone in the class.
I can only think of one student in my previous 21 years of teaching that I truly could not stand to be around, and last I heard he had spent time “locked-up.”
Lastly, he shows his humble side while reminding his students that he’s only human.
I have been wrong many times before and I will be wrong many times again – just ask my wife & kids.
Sounds like it’ll be a wild ride of a school year for the kids at Homewood High School – how many of us could have benefited from such an honest syllabus and educator?

The True Spirit of Isis Will Disembowel and Behead ISIS

Unite the separate elements of a collection of human beings into a smoothly working unit.
An over-simplified and idealistic description of civilization.

If we view this from the side of a religious sect bent on chaos and destruction, then the terrorist army rampaging through the Mideast is smoothly united. Are they civilized? Absolutely not.

Is there a civilized alternative to the type of barbarism displayed by these maladjusted, lazy, bottom feeders of the human race? Absolutely.                                                                                                  

Total annihilation of societies which strive for and represent reason and tolerance of idealogies and faiths which differ from theirs is the goal. They use a religious based excuse to do this, praising god in a form true God doesn't tolerate, as basis for these actions.

Unfortunately for them they will never know the god they strive to please. That god doesn't exist.

Fortunately for anyone who opposes this atrocious group of humans does, by default and conscious action, know God. God abides.

Unite, now that the beast has come out into the open and exposed it's soft belly, all faithful and civilized humans. If the enemy has ever been more visible to such a numerous and diverse collection of people, capable of rapid communication over long distances, it isn't recorded any place, other than Gods' word which transcends all of this turmoil.

People, civilized people, around the world unite to help victims of natural disasters on a daily basis.
The gangsters, who are terrorizing innocent, hard striving people, need to be stopped. Collective action, by civilized societies around the world could put an end to this.

Let's ask for a moment of retrospection by all governments who, with patience, persistence and prayer have lifted their collective souls above this type of reckless disregard for human rights and suppression of the pursuit, in a perfect world, of life, liberty and happiness. That all who understand the concept "that with great knowledge comes great responsibility" will convert that knowledge into aid for resistance and defense of the target of these common criminals, who stalk about, under the guise of religion, searching for innocents to destroy, so help us God.

L' Dead Times

Talk show host Dennis Prager attempts to explain the Israeli-Arab conflict. 
The conservative Prager, who did graduate work at the Middle East Institute at Columbia University, says that while many believe “the Middle East conflict is the most complex conflict in the world,” it is also “the easiest conflict in the world to explain.”
While Prager calls the conflict “simple,” he explains that it is difficult to solve for one fundamental reason: Most Arabs, including many Palestinians, “do not recognize the right of the Jewish state of Israel to exist.”
Prager’s assertion that “one side wants the other one dead” may be a bit strong, but the Hamas charter isn’t too far off:“Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it, just as it obliterated others before it.” 
So again, does that mean the Palestinians and other Arabs want all Israelis “dead”? Of course not, but it’s hard to envision Israel being “obliterated” without a tremendous loss of life.
The PLO – Palestinian Liberation Organization – recognized Israel as a state in 1993, although Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas says the Palestinians will never recognize Israel as a Jewish state.
Various Muslim countries – Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Jordan, for example – have also recognized Israel’s right to exist. Others – Pakistan and Iran among them – have not. Throw in Hamas, al Qaeda and The Islamic State (formerly ISIS or ISIL), who are committed to Israel’s destruction, and the ever-present danger the Israelis face is clear.
Cease-fires between Israel and Hamas (along with Hezbollah) come and go, but what doesn’t go is the ultimate objective of the terrorists and their sponsors: the destruction of a country roughly the size of New Jersey. A country of 5 million Jews surrounded by 500 million Arabs, many of whom share Hamas’ goal.

As Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin puts it, “If the Arabs put down their weapons today, there would be no more ‎violence. If the Jews put ‎down their weapons ‎today, there would be no more Israel.”
