Vacation Backlash

***As word gets out about the Obama's lavish vacations, even their base is getting a little miffed.

Blue collar Democratic voters, stuck taking depressing “staycations” because they can’t afford gas and hotels, are resentful of the first family’s 17 lavish vacations around the world and don’t want their tax dollars paying for the Obamas’ holidays, according to a new analysis of swing voters.

This kind of headline's not helping the Obamas:

 Michelle Obama's Spain vacation cost taxpayers nearly $470,000. Yep, they're just like us.

***Colts select Andrew Luck as top draft pick.

***Great piece on the gross injustice being done to George Zimmerman.

It was so simple: A white vigilante with a gun murdered a teenager in cold blood because he was black. The racist white murderer claimed he only used the gun because the teenager was slamming his head into the sidewalk, but he didn’t have any injuries. He called the teenager a racist name in his 911 call. He said he was following him because “he looks black.” And when the police dispatcher told him to back off, he ignored the warning.
Cut and dried. Case closed.
Then the white guy became a “white Hispanic.”
Then police reports about the injuries to the back of his head turned out to be true.
Then it turned out he never used a racial epithet in his 911 call.
And when he told the dispatcher, “He looks black,” it was in response to a direct question, not an indication of motive.
And when the dispatcher told him not to follow the kid, he said, “Okay.”


The more the facts come out, the more obvious it is that Zimmerman is a pawn in the race baiters' game. Here are a few things you never knew - and still wouldn't if you didn't read beyond the MSM's biased reports. 

The 28-year-old insurance-fraud investigator comes from a deeply Catholic background and was taught in his early years to do right by those less fortunate. He was raised in a racially integrated household and himself has black roots through an Afro-Peruvian great-grandfather – the father of the maternal grandmother who helped raise him…

He was raised in a racially integrated household? But...I thought he was a racist bent on killing a black kid no matter what? This gets more sickening by the day.

***This is how they feel, and how they operate: Top EPA official wants to "crucify oil companies." The EPA should be abolished. He's a Democrat, of course.

***Have you heard about this nonsense? The Labor Department wants to apply child labor laws to kids living on farms. No chores! Yeah, that's just what our young people need. A federal mandate to be lazy...not to mention the federal government taking over for parents. This is nuts!


Sarah Palin took to Facebook Thursday to warn followers that the Obama administration’s attempt to control what chores children can do on a farm is not where the government’s intrusion will end.

“If you think the government’s new regs will stop at family farms, think again,” the former Alaska governor and vice presidential candidate wrote, according to Politico.

“The Obama Administration is working on regulations that would prevent children from working on our family farms. This is more overreach of the federal government with many negative consequences,” she said Wednesday in a post titled, “If I Wanted America to Fail, I’d Ban Kids From Farm Work.”

The proposed Department of Labor regulations would prevent anyone younger than 16 from participating in the cultivation, harvesting, and curing of tobacco, and from operating most power-driven machinery.

***From Inspire 21:

There once was a man and a woman who had been married for more than 60 years. They talked about everything. They kept no secrets from each other... except that the old woman had a shoe box in the top of her closet that she cautioned her husband never to open it or ask her about it.
For all these years he had never thought about the box, but one day the little old woman got very sick and the doctor said she would never recover.
In trying to sort out their affairs the little old man took down the shoe box and took it to his wife's bedside. She agreed it was time that he should know what was in the box.
When he opened it he found 2 beautifully crocheted doilies and a stack of money totaling over $25,000. He asked her about the unusual contents.
"When we were married," she said, " my grandmother told me the secret of a happy marriage was to never argue. She told me that if I ever got angry with you, I should just keep quiet and crochet a doily."
The little old man was so moved, he had to fight back tears. Only two precious doilies were in the box. She had only been angry with him two times in all those years of living and loving. He almost burst with joy and happiness.
"Sweetheart," he said... "that explains the doilies, but what about all this money? Where did it all come from?"
Oh," she said, " that's the money I made from selling the doilies."
2 doilies
