Hello My Friends,

This from an Alert that I received today from our friends over at Grassfire...

"Day 8" of the 17-percent government "shutdown" reveals that 1,100 square miles of open ocean off the coast of Florida is closed ... along with a bevy of national parks, monuments, rest areas, parking lots, marinas, inns and even some private homes on federal land. They've all been closed by National Park Service rangers who were told "to make life as difficult for people as we can."

Unless you're part of the pro-amnesty crowd!

+ + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + +
+ + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + + +

Barack Hussein Obama has REFUSED access to the National Mall in D.C. for taxpayers and veterans. But he's throwing aside the barricades and WELCOMING illegals and pro-amnesty groups, who will participate in the "Camino Americano: March for Immigration Reform" rally there TODAY (Tuesday, October 8).

As a key member of the Grassfire team, we want you to be aware of the heavy-handed, Chicago-style tactics being employed by our feckless leader. We also want to give you an opportunity to respond by adding your name to the national "Defund and Delay ObamaCare" petition.

Go here to sign and have your petition hand-delivered to key members of Congress:

+ + Obama's Contempt For Americans Hits New Low

Phillip, as this latest, most reprehensible action shows, Obama and his Leftist minions have nothing but contempt for you! As usual, our "Divider-in-Chief" is slapping down veterans and taxpaying citizens while praising the efforts of yet another radical special-interest group.

As patriots, we are compelled to respond. Grassfire will help you do just that when we hand-deliver your petition and upwards of 200,000 others to key leaders -- urging them to stand strong against ObamaCare!

Add your name to this important national petition by going here now:

Republicans in the House are under growing and intense scrutiny -- not only from Obama himself, but from his lap dogs in the liberal media.

The GOP is fighting to give you and your family the same one-year exemption to ObamaCare that "The Great Redistributor" has given to his union chiefs and big-business buddies.


Go here now to sign the "Defund and Delay ObamaCare" petition and let us represent you during the upcoming hand-delivery to key GOP leaders later this week:

Thank you, in advance, for taking action.

The Grassfire Team

P.S. By granting permission to pro-amnesty groups to rally on the "closed" National Mall, Obama's contempt for the American people has sunk to a new low. Answer back by emboldening GOP lawmakers to stand firm in their demands to defund and delay ObamaCare! Click here now to sign and have your petition hand-delivered to key Republican lawmakers this week.

Hi Nicola,

Thanks for stopping by and thanks for your Comments. Even though this was first posted back in 2013, sadly most of this still true today.

Have A Fantastic Friday,

I enjoyed these so much I am borrowing two for a post and will share your forum while doing so. I laughed myself into a trip to the jon. Only after my second cup of coffee though. Thanks for the grins.


Hello Everyone,

Just a few funny thoughts about life and Politics in America. Hope you all will enjoy them!

Things You'll Find Only In America

1. Only in America......can a pizza get to your house faster than an ambulance.
2. Only in America......are there handicap parking places in front of a skating rink.
3. Only in drugstores make the sick walk all the way to the back of the store to get their prescriptions while healthy people can buy cigarettes at the front.
4. Only in people order double cheese burgers, large fries, and a diet Coke.
5. Only in banks leave both doors to the vault open and then chain the pens to the counters.
6. Only in we leave cars worth thousands of dollars in the driveway and put our useless junk in the garage.
7. Only in we use answering machines to screen calls and then have call waiting so we won't miss a call from someone we didn't want to talk to in the first place.
8. Only in we buy hot dogs in packages of ten and buns in packages of eight.
9. Only in we use the word 'politics' to describe the process so well: Poli' in Latin meaning 'many' and 'tics' meaning 'bloodsucking creatures'.
10. Only in they have drive-up ATM machines with Braille lettering.


What Is Politics

A little boy goes to his dad and asks, "What is politics?"

Dad says, "Well son, let me try to explain it this way: I'm the breadwinner of the family, so let's call me capitalism. Your Mom, she's the administrator of the money, so we'll call her the Government. We're here to take care of your needs, so we'll call you the people. The nanny, we'll consider her the Working Class. And your baby brother, we'll call him the Future. Now, think about that and see if that makes sense,"

So the little boy goes off to bed thinking about what dad had said.

Later that night, he hears his baby brother crying, so he gets up to check on him. He finds that the baby has severely soiled his diaper. So the little boy goes to his parents' room and finds his mother sound asleep. Not wanting to wake her, he goes to the nanny's room. Finding the door locked, he peeks in the keyhole and sees his father in bed with the nanny. He gives up and goes back to bed. The next morning, the little boy says to his father, "Dad, I think I understand the concept of politics now."

The father says, "Good son, tell me in your own words what you think politics is all about."

The little boy replies, "Well, while Capitalism is screwing the Working Class, the Government is sound asleep, the People are being ignored and the Future is in deep poo."


Cows & Politics

A CHRISTIAN DEMOCRAT: You have two cows. You keep one and give one to your neighbor.

A SOCIALIST: You have two cows. The government takes one and gives it to your neighbor.

AN AMERICAN REPUBLICAN: You have two cows. Your neighbor has none. So what?

AN AMERICAN DEMOCRAT: You have two cows. Your neighbor has none. You feel guilty for being successful. You vote people into office who tax your cows, forcing you to sell one to raise money to pay the tax. The people you voted for then take the tax money and buy a cow and give it to your neighbor. You feel righteous.

A COMMUNIST: You have two cows. The government seizes both and provides you with milk.

A FASCIST: You have two cows. The government seizes both and sells you the milk. You join the underground and start a campaign of sabotage.

DEMOCRACY, AMERICAN STYLE: You have two cows. The government taxes you to the point you have to sell both to support a man in a foreign country who has only one cow, which was a gift from your government.

CAPITALISM, AMERICAN STYLE: You have two cows. You sell one, buy a bull, and build a herd of cows.

BUREAUCRACY, AMERICAN STYLE: You have two cows. The government takes them both, shoots one, milks the other, pays you for the milk, then pours the milk down the drain.

AN AMERICAN CORPORATION: You have two cows. You sell one, and force the other to produce the milk of four cows. You are surprised when the cow drops dead.

AN ARKANSAS CORPORATION: You have two cows. That one on the left is kinda cute.


Rules In Washington

If it's worth fighting for, it's worth fighting dirty for.

Don't lie, cheat or steal...unnecessarily.

There is always one more son of a ***** than you counted on.

An honest answer can get you into a lot of trouble.

The facts, although interesting, are irrelevant.

Chicken little only has to be right once.

"NO" is only an interim response.

You can't kill a bad idea.

If at first you don't succeed, destroy all evidence that you ever tried.

The truth is a variable.

A porcupine with his quills down in just another fat rodent.

You can agree with any concept or notional future option, in principle, but fight implementation every step of the way.

A promise is not a guarantee.

If you can't counter the argument, leave the meeting.


And finally...

The Conservative & The Genie

A Conservative came upon a Genie and said, "You're a Genie. Can you grant me three wishes?" The Genie replied, "Yes, but only if you're feeling generous enough to share your good fortune." The Conservative said, "I'm a Conservative. You know that I won't be happy, but I'm willing to share." The Genie said, "O.K., then, whatever you wish for, I'll give every Liberal in the country two of it. What's your first wish?" "I would like a new sports car." "O.K., you've got it, and every Liberal in the country gets two sports cars. What's your second wish?" "I'd like a million dollars." "O.K., you get a million dollars, every Liberal gets two million dollars. What's your third and final wish?" "Well, I've always wanted to donate a kidney."


Have A Wonderful Week My Friends,


May Wisdom and the knowledge you gained go with you,

Hi Jim,

Thanks for stopping by and I'm glad you enjoyed these. Here's a few more that you might like...

1. Only in America could politicians talk about the greed of the rich…at a $40,000-a-plate campaign fundraising event.

2. Only in America could people claim that the government still discriminates against black Americans…when we have a black President, a black Attorney General, and a federal workforce that is roughly 18% black when the black population is only 12%.

3. Only in America could we have had the two people most responsible for our tax code – Timothy Geithner, the head of the Treasury Department and Charles Rangel who once ran the Ways and Means Committee…turn out to be tax cheats but are in favor of higher taxes.

4. Only in America can we have terrorists kill people in the name of Allah…and have the media primarily react by fretting that Muslims might be harmed by the backlash.

5. Only in America would we make people who want to legally become American citizens wait for years in their home countries and pay tens of thousands of dollars for the privilege…while we discuss letting anyone who sneaks into the country illegally just become American citizens.

6. Only in America could the people who believe in balancing the budget and sticking by the country’s Constitution…be thought of as “extremists.”

7. Only in America could you need to present a driver’s license to cash a check or buy alcohol…but not to vote.

8. Only in America could people demand the government investigate whether oil companies are gouging the public because the price of gas went up…when the return on equity invested by a major U.S. oil company (Marathon Oil) is less than half of what a company that manufactures sports shoes and apparel (Nike) makes.

9. Only in America could the government collect more tax dollars from the people than any nation in recorded history, still spend a trillion dollars more than it has per year for total spending ($7 million PER MINUTE)…and complain that it doesn’t have nearly enough money.

10. Only in America could the rich people who pay 86% of all income taxes…be accused of not paying their fair share. “

Have A Great Week My Friend,
