Random Mish Mash of Thoughts

I've been MIA while working on a charity event for my daughter's school, so I thought I'd post some thoughts that have gone through my brain since my last post.

I was already less than thrilled with Obama's Leno appearance. I was aghast when he poked fun at the Special Olympics. "It's like — it was like Special Olympics, or something," he said in reference to his bowling game.

The man doesn't seem to have a filter. Every time he's separated from his beloved teleprompter, he blurts out something completely inappropriate and unbecoming of his position. He was barely in office when he blurted, "I didn't want to get into a Nancy Reagan thing about doing any seances."

He has to be the world's worst gift giver. British PM Gordon Brown gifted the new President with an ornamental pen holder made from the timbers of the Victorian anti-slave ship HMS Gannet and a first edition of the seven-volume biography of Churchill by Sir Martin Gilbert, among other things. In return, Obama allegedly gave Brown a "special collector's box" of 25 classic American DVDs. DVDs which are unplayable in the UK without special converters.

Do we even need to talk about the Ipod/Queen fiasco?

Speaking of the Queen... I cannot believe that Michelle O. touched her. I understand that many people may not be aware of proper protocol regarding royalty, but as First Lady, you think she'd have brushed up on her What To Do When You Meet the Queen Skills.

Meanwhile, while Michelle wasn't showing enough respect to her Majesty, the POTUS was busy bowing at the waist to the king of Saudi Arabia. Are you kidding me? When I heard this, I honestly thought it was a joke, or a conspiracy theory. But I've seen the video. It's a clear bow. Anyone that says otherwise would probably try to argue that guns kill people, or spoons make people fat.

No wonder no one is investing in anything these days! We have a President that is so impetuous that he runs around showing himself subservient to leaders of conflict ridden countries, thinks it's entirely appropriate to give unplayable DVDs to PM Gordon Brown, goes around firing CEO's of private companies(GM), taxing the bonuses of those that had nothing to do with this financial mess other than have the misfortune of working for a company that received bailout money (AIG), and is refusing to accept repayment from the companies that want to give the money back!

It all seems like a bad dream. This administration has gone so far off the edge of sanity that people are finally starting to wake up. Little by little, the glitter is wearing off, and all that's left is a swarmy deceiver with no real experience, no conscience, no patriotism, and no desire to help anyone but himself.

Let's start taking our country and our freedoms back. I want freedom to fail. If I have freedom to fail, it also means that I have freedom to succeed.

Attend a Tax Day Tea Party rally this Saturday, and a Tea Party Protest next Wednesday, April 15th. For more information about finding one in your area, visit here.
