***We can learn a lot from Lady Margaret Thatcher. What a great lady! Here's a great piece by Rich Lowry on her inexhaustible spirit and unwillingness to let Britain die. That's the kind of spirit we need in the White House. Obama and the Democrats have nearly run this country into the ground, our next President and Congress are going to have a big job on their hands turning this mess around. However, I have no doubt it can be done.
***Occupy Charlotte idiots burn the flag. Detestable parasites.
***Ever hear of "feederism?" It's when people enjoy buying you enormous amounts of food and then watching you eat it. That's bizarre! Here's a story about a 600 lb woman to whom people would send money to buy food, then watch her eat it on the Internet. She has decided to stop that and try to get healthy, but at one point she was earning $1000 a month just to let people watch her eat. That's one of the weirdest things I've ever heard.
***Now that's chutzpah:
Speaking from her paradisical $4 million Hawaii vacation, Mrs. Obama wants to know: Do any of President Obama’s supporters have $3 to spare for his reelection?
This is approximately like coming upon Warren Buffett on a street corner with a McDonald’s cup asking if he can have 15 cents.
Michelle’s request was part of an email sent to the Obama 2012 list today.
Over the next 11 months we’ve got an organization to grow, voters to register, and people to get fired up.The obscene juxtaposition of the first lady on a $4 million vacation while asking what would have to be middle to low income earners for three bucks – who else would they be targeting with such an appeal? – is yet another example of lack of perspective the Obamas seem to be gaining while in power.
I hope you’ll close out this year by donating $3 or more now to help make sure we’re ready for the next one . . .
Thank you so much, and happy new year,
***Chris Christie at a Romney rally:
"Let's be real clear. Let's be real clear. President Barack Obama came out to Iowa three years ago, and he talked to you about hope and change. Well, let me tell you, after three years of Obama, we are hopeless and changeless, and we need Mitt Romney to bring us back, to bring America back," Gov. Chris Christie (R-NJ) said in Iowa today at a Romney rally.
***An acquaintance of mine who is a physician told this story about
her then-four-year-old daughter. On the way to preschool, the
doctor had left her stethoscope on the car seat, and her little
girl picked it up and began playing with it. "Be still, my
heart," thought my friend, "my daughter wants to follow in my
footsteps!" Then the child spoke into the instrument, "Welcome to McDonald's. May I take your order?"
