***Growing numbers of people dissatisfied with Obama's handling of the economy.
The Marist-McClatchy poll found that only 40 percent of registered voters approve of Obama’s handling of the economy, with a considerably higher number of Democrats and independents raising doubts.
Since January, the number of Democrats who disapprove of Obama’s handling of the economy has nearly doubled, growing 12 percentage points to 27 percent, while the percentage of independents casting doubt has grown from 50 percent in January to 63 percent, the poll found.
Yet I keep hearing that Obama would defeat just about any comers if the election were held today. I don't believe it for a minute - that's just another media-driven meme to protect their messiah. You don't coast to re-election with an approval rating in the low 40s.
***Court lifts ban on embryonic stem cell research. Even though every major breakthrough has involved adult stem cells and embryonic stem cells have yielded nothing. This is just another way the liberals can target unborn babies. What IS it with these people?
***World's Fastest Car: The Bugatti Veyron Super Sport. Only $2.8 million!
***Good reason to buy Johnsonville brats and Angel Soft toilet paper. The union thugs are targeting these companies (and others) because they supported Scott Walker.
***Think Progress is at it again. Honestly, it's hard to believe people take this stuff seriously, but unfortunately many do. They're exploiting the tragic tornadoes and blaming them on - you guessed it - global warming and the politicians who voted against the EPA's inane carbon dioxide endangerment finding. They can't be honest, of course, so they claim these politicians voted to "pollute the climate." Does THAT make sense to anyone? More here. Love this line - When you "Think Progress" - think stupid.
***Mark Steyn was *awesome* subbing for Rush yesterday. He went on a diatribe regarding the attention to Obama's birth certificate. He said many on the Right are focusing on the one thing that Obama is NOT to blame for - where and to whom he was born - and letting the 53% of people who voted for this rube off the hook. He's right - 53% of the American people lost their collective minds and elected a man with no executive experience, who has never run anything, never accomplished anything but getting himself elected to public office, with a background full of warnings as to his socialist tendencies and complete lack of understanding of how a free nation works, as President of the United States. THAT, people, was stupidity, and we're paying the price. Those people who fell for the Hope & Change garbage are the ones we should be angry with, the blame for what is happening to America right before our eyes is on their shoulders. Obama MUST be defeated in 2012, or we may pass the point of no return and lose this country as we know it. We are well on our way.
***San Francisco Chronicle says White House lied. No...say it isn't so!
***Food sprinkle that signals your brain to stop over-eating?
***Fun facts to know and tell:
*If you snore, you can't dream. Certain studies indicate that if a person is sleeping and snores, he/she can't dream.
*The call of the humpback whale is the loudest sound produced by any living animal.
*If the earth were tilted one more degree either way, the planet would not be habitable because the area around the equator would be too hot and the poles would be too cold. (Yeah, but that just happened by chance, y'know...)
*Looking at the Sun Can Trigger a Sneeze and is known as photic sneeze reflex and is yet not explained by science.
*Female black widow spiders eat their males after mating. (Oh, there are SO many jokes that can be made here...)
***Check out these before and afters!
Guess there's something to be said for body building!
***I've heard that Soul Surfer is an excellent movie. I'm anxious to see that one.
AN INSPIRING PRAYER
-- Author Unknown
Heavenly Father, help us remember that the jerk who cut us off in traffic last night is a single mother who worked nine hours that day and is rushing home to cook dinner, help with homework, do the laundry and spend a few precious moments with her children.
Help us to remember that the pierced, tattooed, disinterested young man who can't make change correctly is a worried 19-year-old college student, balancing his apprehension over final exams with his fear of not getting his student loans for next semester.
Remind us, Lord, that the scary looking bum, begging for money in the same spot every day (who really ought to get a job!) is a slave to addictions that we can only imagine in our worst nightmares.
Help us to remember that the old couple walking annoyingly slow through the store aisles and blocking our shopping progress are savoring this moment, knowing that, based on the biopsy report she got back last week, this will be the last year that they go shopping together.
Heavenly Father, remind us each day that, of all the gifts you give us, the greatest gift is love. It is not enough to share that love with those we hold dear. Open our hearts not to just those who are close to us, but to all humanity. Let us be slow to judge and quick to forgive, show patience, empathy and love.
***Relax! I got this...
"If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours."
***Have a great day!
