The real moral is NEVER put a black, white or any man or woman in this kind of power that does not like this country and is a liberal or socialist.
GOP not credible? Republican Abraham Lincoln freed the slaves, Republican US Grant helped win the Civil War and prosecuted the klan( formed by dems, ). Republican T. Roosevelt has black in white House for first time to dinner. .Republican policies of Calvin Coolidge and Ronald Reagan lift millions of blacks and minorities with jobs and upward mobility with prosperous policies and tax cuts 1920s, 1980s(JFK did same with tax cuts). Republicans get civil rights passed-1960s and LBJ gets ALL the credit. Republican Dwight Eisenhower calls out national guard in to integrate schools while dem governor Wallace stands in doorway ranting about segregation.
Dem Andrew Jackson forces Indians on "trail of tears" march-hundreds die. Dem politicians oppose Lincoln freeing the slaves. Dem Woodrow Wilson widely considered our most racist president-ever. Dems turn fire hoses on protesting blacks. Dem president FDR puts thousands of loyal Asian Americans in detention centers in WW2. Dems, including Hillary and Biden routinely mock black dialect and mannerisms. Dems keep blacks and other minorities in poverty and dependency for 150+ years. Dems routinely mock and scorn every GOP minority candidate up to present day and kept a former klansman as Senate Leader and on and on.
For the seventh straight year our brave president has again pardoned a turkey. He already holds the record for seven straight years and it may never be broken. In case you missed it, this is the 7th year in a row a turkey has pardoned another turkey and it has never happened in recorded history.
The president this time went even further and pardoned a second turkey so this new record means for the first time a single turkey has pardoned more than one other turkey.. His legacy is secure
Warren invests like a girl? This is a new one . I will be sure not to listen to a man who has become the world's most successful investor and instead sign up for a "free" newsletter that will not cease to hustle you and has disclaimers all over it. Its good to know they do it just out of the goodness of their hearts and can't thank you enough.
Key day is tomorrow if it can follow through. Still not sure if this is a leak or an intra day spike. Gut is telling me something in the wind or at least we are close.
Yes and I have followed that deal also and have wondered how it is viewed from mgt-positive I would think. I thought they would hold out and still do for some time after the initial announcement, but this could be a step closer and when the smoke clears I still contend 10+ is a foregone conclusion.
It was in Dec. of 1862 in Fredericksburg, Va. The Confederate Army was firmly entrenched in a position behind a stone wall in high ground known as Marye's Heights. They had just soundly defeated the Union army that attacked them across the open fields and in the freezing cold about 7000 dead ,dying and wounded northern soldiers lay in front of them with many crying for water and aid during a lull in the fighting.
As the cries continued, a young 19 year old Confederate Sgt, Richard Kirkland, could stand it no longer and he received reluctant permission from his commander to go over the wall and help his enemies. He loaded up as many full canteens and other items as he could carry and went over the wall and went from one enemy soldier to another giving them water and anything else that he could and made them as comfortable as possible. Soldiers on both sides looked on in amazement and wonder and as rifles were raised someone called out :don''t shoot that man he is too brave to die" and no one did.. He continued on for hours and finally went back to his lines among cheers from BOTH sides.
Sadly the brave young man was killed in another bloodbath the following year, but there is a fitting memorial on the spot today and the brave young soldier is known to history as the "Angel of Marye's Heights".
I have really enjoyed recalling a few of the many stories of leadership that has made us great, but it does not seem proper that I should leave out the one diverse group that made it all possible: all of our brave men and women in uniform-including police,fire depts. and ALL support personnel
With Thanksgiving coming this week, we should all be really thankful we have these people who are the best among us and without whom there is no America. For me, everyday is thanksgiving.
I am fully aware of the unjust criticism and treatment they have received and the images the media has created of them and the political party that has promoted it.
This story, which takes place in the Civil War, is quite typical of the quality of not just the Confederacy, but the Union and ALL of our soldiers in ALL of our men and women past and present in uniform.
5- It was Oct. 2001 just a month after 9-11 that I am sure many of us can recall. No one knew where or when the terrorists would strike again and President GW Bush and his adm who were considered prime targets could hardly be blamed for staying out of sight. In an act of courage and resolve, the president went to Yankee stadium to throw out the ball on the pitchers' mound at the beginning of the world series. (It should be noted the president also had a good arm and did not throw like a girl), The stadium erupted with cheers and President GW Bush would go on to keep us safe following the worst attack on our soil
4-It was June 1944 and the Supreme allied commander Gen Eisenhower must have felt the weight of the world on his shoulders as he nervously planned and coordinated D-Day. Although he had faked the Germans out with an allied landing further away, he had already prepared a letter accepting full responsibility if it failed. It was the beginning of the end for the Axis powers as the General inspired his men and got everything in place . In spite of heavy casualties the Americans and the Allies were victorious and after one more German defensive that winter(Battle of the Bulge) the war was won and the likable and obviously capable general became our 34th president.
40 years later another great American president, Ronald Reagan, came to the shores of Normandy(D-Day) and spoke so eloquently and profoundly that even among the hardened vets there was hardly a dry eye. A few years later in 1987 against the advice of even other conservatives who feared he would start WW3, he challenged his Russian counterpart Gorbachov to "tear down this wall" (Berlin Wall) He ended the cold war without firing a shot!
I should start with Alan Colmes? It took a while to stop laughing so hard before I could write this. How about Bernie Sanders? Maybe when he loses the nomination to the Clinton crime machine he will get his own radio show and teach the country the merits of socialism and then I could follow him too.
amo: One more thing ; If I stop listening to talk radio and watching Fox(both by far rated number 1 year in and year out for balance and accuracy) which media outlet should I listen to and watch?
unc: there are some here who think you are off the deep edge and I can't say I would disagree. Just for fun what in the h........ is a neocon president?
close amoreno, but no cigar. read slowly and carefully: The act was in 2009 DURING the crisis, but it was the brain child of the liberal nitwit politiicans that banks should lend to unqualified individuals and when these people by thousands predictably could not/would not pay back the loans a crisis was created. So the benevolent libs in gov. decided to put the clamps on the banks and thus a scapegoat was created(and I am not necessarily a fan of the banks but facts are facts ) Not only did they have a bad boy(the banks and wall street) but attention was also taken off the REAL offenders: big gov. who once again created a "crisis" and set in motion a need for big gov to fix it. Thus we get more and more bigger and bigger gov.
The crisis spread to other sectors and I personally know several individuals that were put out of business, shut down and could not continue to earn a living and they also became unemployment statistics which should make you and the other liberal nitwits very happy indeed .
You liberal clowns are really getting boring amoreno. The dems CAUSED the economy to go south and crash esp thanks to Dodd-Frank(look it up if you don't know what it is). This is also instructive for all to see: you cannot refute the facts so you immediately go to personal attacks and names, but what else should anyone expect? Some advice: don't give any because you are too dumb to even be walking around.
One more futile effort unc: There is no 5% unemployment as millions have quit looking (thanks BO) and many more not counted. This is esp true among blacks and other minorities you guys profess to love so much. Lower gas has zero to do with Obama and everything to do with the markets and world events. Inflation is low, not zero and largely due to recession which Obama's policies have helped to extend. btw before you start on GW Bush you should know that he had 7 out of 8 good years for the economy and it only went south in his last year-guess which party we put in power that year(hint it begins with a d and has a jackass for a symbol)
