Slush Fund

***That's all the stimulus was. Rush has been saying that for nearly 4 years now, and here's the proof:  Richer Democratic States with Lower Unemployment Got Bulk of Obama Stimulus.

In their explosive new book Debacle: Obama's War on Jobs and Growth and What We Can Do Now to Regain Our Future, Grover Norquist and John Lott, Jr. uncover a startling fact: heavily Democratic states with lower poverty rates, lower unemployment rates, lower bankruptcy rates, and lower foreclosure rates received most of President Barack Obama's $825 billion Stimulus.

Put another way, Stimulus money went to precisely the states that needed it the least but were more politically connected to the Democratic Party.

This was never about stimulating the economy. It was about keeping Democrats in power and lining their pockets. Yet they're the ones screaming that Republicans only favor the rich. I wish the average uninformed, rather dimwitted Obama voter would look up from "The View" every once in a while and figure this stuff out.

***Proposed law would force churches to allow gay weddings. Oh, but it's THEIR rights everyone's worried about.

***House Democrats want to probe Wal-Mart bribery case in Mexico. Wish they were as interested in Fast & Furious.

***From A Gift of Inspiration:

Promise yourself


To be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind.

To talk health, happiness, and prosperity to every person you meet.

To make all your friends feel that there is something in them.

To look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true.

To think only the best, to work only for the best, and to expect only the best.

To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own.

To forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future.

To wear a cheerful countenance at all times and give every living creature you meet a smile.

To give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others.

To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear; and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.

To think well of yourself and to proclaim this fact to the world, not in loud words, but in great deeds.

To live in the faith that the whole world is on your side so long as you are true to the best that is in you.

*** Twitter lynch mob calls for Zimmerman's death. Imagine the outcry if he were black. 

Twitter message boards were full of calls to kill Trayvon Martin shooter George Zimmerman on Monday, just hours after he was released on $150,000 bail.

At least one tweet — on a website that specifically tells users, “You may not publish or post direct, specific threats of violence against others" — also called for Judge Kenneth Lester, who freed Zimmerman, to be murdered.

Typical of the 140-character-or-less messages on Twitter was one from a woman calling herself “Chatia” from Boston. “Someone pass me a gun, imma go follow zimmerman, shoot, and kill him and say #imstandingmyground,” she wrote.

Chatia’s profile picture is of a young, black woman.

WillFolarinMawana, whose picture shows a dreadlocked young man in sunglasses, wrote, “George Zimmerman Released From Jail 150,000 Bail! WTF!” The poster then added a racial epithet before adding, “You Are About To Die, Start Writing Your Will! Justices Has Not Been Served.”

Lovely. I've said it before and I'll say it again - where are the cries for civility and calm from the Left? This kind of hatred can be laid squarely at the feet of the abominable, biased coverage from our news media and the likes of Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton. But..they'll never take responsibility for it, of course. It's up to the rest of us to continue to point it out.

***Democrats vow to kill Arizona immigration law. Ever wonder what the real reason behind this is? They need all the votes they can get, legal or otherwise.

Senate Democrats are making plans to force a floor vote on legislation that would invalidate Arizona’s controversial immigration statute if the Supreme Court upholds the law this summer.

Notice that? "...if the Supreme Court upholds the law this summer." They don't care about the law of the land. They want what they want, no matter how they get it. Geez, I abhor liberals.

***The Secret to a Great Weekend:

Anyone who will step back and take a look at his way of life can find ways to slow down without resorting to tranquilizers. Why shouldn’t the busy mom, between chores, kick off her shoes, lie down on the sofa, pause.jpgand day dream for a few minutes? If her conscience tries to intrude, it should be sent on an errand. When she gets up she’ll find that a lot of energy has flowed back into her.

Pausers are not time-wasters; they are time-users.

To be sure, pausing can be overdone. Lying in bed that extra five minutes is delightful; an extra hour might be not only dull but disastrous. Sooner or later most of us have to get up, go to the office, or get the children off to school, attend to the endless mechanics of living.

But we will do these things better if we have the emotional balance and the controlled energy that comes from deliberate slowing of the pace.

I really need to learn how to do this...

***Have a great day!
