Sad but True… Yes still very funny!

His predecessor, George W. Bush, just three days after hijacked planes destroyed the World Trade Center’s Twin Towers, had stood bullhorn in hand in the smoldering wreckage to declare, “The people who knocked these buildings down will hear all of us soon.”

Almost a decade later, in a bookend to that historic visit, Obama came to New York to say that promise had been kept.

He said the killing of bin Laden told the world “that when we say we will never forget, we mean what we say.”

Obama visited Engine 54 in midtown, which with 15 deaths lost more members on 9/11 than any other firehouse, before heading to Lower Manhattan to talk with police and lay a wreath at Ground Zero, the Twin Towers site, where he also met with victims’ families.

Read The Rest


“While it is understandable that President Obama would want to take credit for the action that killed bin Laden, it was unseemly that in his speech Sunday night, Obama implied that without his personal leadership, the death of bin Laden would not have happened. Too many people have worked to that end for almost a decade. To them – in the intelligence and special operations communities – should our thanks be directed.” – Jed Babbin, Washington Examiner

personally I think Former President Bush deserves more credit for the events of Sunday evening/ Monday Morning, then Obama does. If it we’re up to Obama and the rest of the dems we would have been out of Afghanistan already. And it was President Bush who put the pieces in play to begin with.


“When the federal government spends more each year than it collects in tax revenues, it has three choices: It can raise taxes, print money, or borrow money. While these actions may benefit politicians, all three options are bad for average Americans. Deficits mean future tax increases, pure and simple. Deficit spending should be viewed as a tax on future generations, and politicians who create deficits should be exposed as tax hikers.”

Hmmm, I find it odd that most of the comments I get are on the dumb stuff. I post something of a serious nature and it seems like it’s ignored.

Confused….


Jessica Mokedad’s friends and family told us that for the first time in her life, she was finally happy. She had friends and freedom, but her stepfather is accused of taking that all away.

“I was in Minnesota, and he called me, my husband, and said, ‘I am turning myself into the police. I smacked Jessica,’” said mother Wendy Alfetlawi.

However, Warren Police say Rahim Alfetlawi didn’t slap his stepdaughter, he shot her.

Jessica’s friends say this tragic ending was years in the making. Mokedad grew up in Minnesota with her mother and her stepfather.

“He won’t let her out of his eyesight,” Ali Alfetlawi said.

“He was too overbearing, over controlling — things I thought that were just normal, strict parenting really. Now, when I look back, I say no, it was too much,” Wendy Alfetlawi said.

He forced her to wear a traditional head scarf instead of allowing her to make that decision on her own, and when she stopped wearing a scarf, friends say he became furious.

Authorities say the man killed his 20-year-old stepdaughter, by shooting her in the head, because she left home and wasn’t following Islam

here’s the thing: Muslims may call it an “honor killing”. In the United States, it’s still murder. I hope the moron gets roasted…

Choke On That!


“The girls can’t name the University of Miami quarterback, because I can’t name him,” Ellen Bakalian says. “I don’t follow sports. I don’t watch Miami games. I did for a little while afterward, but sports aren’t my passion. I watched because Jeff did.”

Monday, she woke up the girls, 12 and 10, in their suburban New Jersey home and said the man who killed their father was dead. They put American flags in the yard. They watched some news on television before school.

But as the shock faded, as the celebration outside the White House worked its way off television, she sat in her New Jersey home and felt her life of nevers hadn’t changed at all.

She’d still never see her husband again. She’d still never watch him with her children again.

In case anyone needed a reminder as to why we are STILL fighting this war and will be for quite some time.
