Ignore the Polls

***Right now, they're useless. Here's a good piece by Bill O'Reilly on that, plus other reasons Obama is still in the race. He should be way behind, given his awful performance as president. But here's the reason he's still in the running:

Last night we told you that 35 percent, 35 percent of American homes, more than 100 million people are now receiving welfare payments. Fifty years ago that number was six percent. Today, the Social Security administration tells us more workers are on disability than at any other time in the nation's history. Almost nine million collecting federal disability checks. In February of 2001, the number was five million.
So in just over 11 years disability payments have doubled. Are you telling me the work place is that much more dangerous? That the health of Americans is that much more precarious? Come on. We all know what's going on here. Our society is changing from self-reliance to "give me stuff".
That is simply unsustainable, and the reason we are so far in the red. President Obama is the Provider-in-Chief, and the people in our society who expect government to take care of them are going to vote for whoever will keep the freebies coming. That would be the Democrats. We have our work cut out for us.

In the town of Mayberry from "The Andy Griffith Show," a small-town sheriff and his trusty deputy always outwitted big-city crooks, and problems never got much bigger than a trigger-happy kid with a slingshot.But while Mayberry was fiction, it was inspired by a real place: Mount Airy, N.C., the late Andy Griffith's hometown. And more than a half-century after the series first aired, fans are still coming to Mount Airy, looking for a glimpse of small-town life and the simpler times portrayed on the show.
Here visitors can eat at the Snappy Lunch, which Griffith's character, Sheriff Andy Taylor, once recommended as a nice place to take a date. They can satisfy a sweet tooth at Opie's Candy Store, named for the sheriff's son, or book a Squad Car Tour of the city at Wally's Service Station. Businesses with Mayberry in the name are too numerous to count, but they include the Mayberry Motor Inn and Mayberry Trading Post. There's also an Andy Griffith Museum and a bed-and-breakfast created from the actor's childhood home.

Sounds like a nice place to visit.

***Awe-inspiring American castles. You don't really think of castles in America (I've always wanted to see the ones in Ireland), but here are a few beauts:


                                                     Boldt Castle in New York

                                                    Hearst Castle in California

                                                       Oheka Castle in New York

                                                      Fonthill Castle in Pennsylvania

***Junk science. You've all seen the "eating eggs is as bad as smoking" thing going around, I've seen it on my Facebook page several times. I always ignore stuff like that, because inevitably it's proven to be complete drivel. This "news" is no different.

***Liberal writer slams SEALs as "gutless." Yeah? I dare you to say that to their face, dude. What an idiot.


This is just another example of the left doing exactly what they accuse the other side, without evidence, of doing. Let's not forget the vile history of protestors in Wisconsin. Remember when protestors saluted to Governor Scott Walker as if he were Hitler? Remember when protestors vandalized the state Capitol, causing millions of dollars in damage? Where are the civility police? Oh wait, they're busy lecturing conservatives, who leave rally sites cleaner than they were when they arrived, to "tone down the rhetoric."

***For my sister, the Plant Queen, and her son, Uber Builder - great ideas! I especially like the first one with the marbles in the fence.

***July is deadliest month for troops in 2012. Remember the press during Operation Enduring Freedom when Bush was president? Every troop death was a headline, a way to hammer Bush and his policies. Now? The Obama bootlickers are silent.

***The Obama leak ads and the Swiftboat ads? Here's the difference:

John Kerry sniffs that criticism by special operators and intelligence professionals of President Obama’s disclosure of sensitive national security information reminds him of the Swift Vet attacks during the 2004 campaign. I’m happy to say that there is a resemblance.
There are also differences, though. The dispute about Kerry’s Vietnam service was entirely about the past. The issue had nothing to do with policy or national security. It was relevant only because it pertained to Kerry’s character and because Kerry had made his service a talking point in the campaign.
Obama’s “dishonorable disclosures” are another matter. The current critics contend that Obama is jeopardizing our national security and the lives of our operatives by talking about U.S. operations in order to enhance his image. This constitutes a potentially more explosive charge than any leveled by the Swift Vets.
No matter what they tell you, the Swiftboat Vets ads were TRUE, and have never been proven otherwise. The current Obama leak ads are true, also. Which is why the Left must attack.
