My young grandkids know how to speak to adults - it’s not automatic, altho some of them have more spark, zip, perkines, and ‘out-goingness’ than the others.

Then they will go far! People take notice today at kids who are bright, intelligent and are able to have an amiable conversation with an adult. Many times I have seen an adult try to engage a kid in casual discussion and get only silence or single-word responses in return. I have seen that happen at work with kids of co-workers and at some family gatherings.

Correction Suggested!!

Inflation is sky high and runaway! All because of HUSSEIN’s Destruction of AMERICA at the beheast of his controller, George Soros! Look at Gold, Silver and every other commodity pricing. We don’t have 9.4% unemployment, millions have given up looking, its more like 20-22%!!
Skilled workers and Management types over 45 have given up looking!! This is worse than Jimmy Carter by a factor of 100! And the GOP is sweeping this Horror under the rug!! The Debt Ceiling has already been raised under Obama Hussein three times by the Demorats before the Tea Party won the House! and we never hear by how much as well!! The debt ceiling has already been raised by most likely FIVE TRILLION DOLLARS under OBAMA HUSSEIN before this latest TWO and a Half TRILLION the Terrorist is demanding now! After the GOP cowars yet again, we will have a Debt Ceiling of SEVENTEEN TRILLION DOLLARS!!!!!!! Don’t argue with my math, I am an engineer who grew up with a slide rule, we work to 4-5 significant figures and that got us to the Moon and the Space Shuttle and Space Stations and Satellites, GPS, and Cell Phones! Now we cant figure out how to find a legitimate Birth Certificate or if Obama is really a Muslim in the Closet!
“May GOD SAVE OUR AMERICA from the Enemy within! For they are ten times more Dangerous than the Known Enemy outside the Gates!”*

Experience has shown that in Wash DC, nothing is innocuous.

I suspect this is the beginning of a setup to have a RAT challenger to nobama. Wonder who it might be?

Two new 747’s will be a hell of alot cheaper than cleaning and decontaminating the existing ones!! And lets remember his terror joy rides in AF ONE over NYC at 1000 ft circling the Statue of Liberty multiple times and the Battery with two Fighters escorting AF ONE, one of which was documented by a front page picture on the NYPOST with the distinctive Red Tail and Emblem of the Alabama Tusheegee(sp?) WWII Black Airmen squadron who george Lucas was rumored to be making an IMAX Anniversary Documentary for with the First Black POTUS! Outrageous! Yet now that pails with his latest assaults on America!

Sounds like good material here for a “Mr. Cellophane” parody song. From the play/movie “Chicago.” Considering where you’re from you should be very familiar with that show.

I should have worded that differently by indicating that they are trying to maintain the perception that inflation is low.

I see it every time I go to the store -- especially in product shrinkage. One store advertised a price drop from $0.99 to $0.89 for a bag of pork rinds. That price drop was accompanied by a package shrinkage from 5 oz to 3.5 oz, too.

By next summer the package will be 0.5 oz and cost $0.50. lol

In the end I hope the good Obama does is like what Carter did - and gave us Reagan.

I hope Obama sucks so bad that we get a great conservative president, with big ideas to really put us on a new track.

Just remember what letter comes after "O."

Cheers! Cheers!

Of course I saw it, but as I said on another thread, Palin needed to be in front of this issue in the media, and she has stayed mostly silent....she’s going to have to be more in front of these things, if she is to have any chance of winning. Voting “present” won’t cut it.

Correction:

I spelled Tuskegee Airmen wrong on my past post to you. In googling the proper spelling, I found and viewed the actual trailer for the new George Lucas Documentary entitled “RED TAILS!!!” which is scheduled to hit the Theaters on January 12, 2012!! just in time to kick off Obama HUSSEIN’s 2012 Presidential Debacle!! Wondering if the AF ONE scenes buzzing NYC and the Statue of Liberty with the Red Tails escorting it will be left on the editing room floors???

Thank you for the links, B4. I’m glad you are in the room with me! Much food for thought.

Please help me understand your position properly. Are you saying that the 2010 class did not do all they could do? You think they also subscribed to the “moderate” actions of the rest of the Republican representatives?

I can certainly understand where you are coming from in that the “powers that be” had the plans and intentions you describe. I think I can see that a case can be made that the 2010 class could actually mitigate nothing.

However, I guess I am still hopeful despite evidence to the contrary that there are Powers (or A Power!) that are (is) greater than the “powers that be” in the world that can take the actions of those who love God and can vanquish those “powers that be.”

*Sigh* Just my hope. Perhaps it seems foolish.

I am reminded of a birthday card given to me many years ago on one of my birthdays that I have treasured over the years:

“Trust in God a lot, but tie up your horse!”

I think we should not avoid looking at what could be coming at us, and to prepare for that...but also I think we should leave room for hope that the worst does not HAVE to happen, especially if we take whatever precautions are practical at the given time.

Perhaps the old saw “Prepare for the worst, hope for the best,” is an old saw for a reason!*smile*

(I’m thinking (hoping?) that in the room we share we are not as polar opposite as it might seem.)

The leaders of both Houses automatically reach for their handkerchiefs when an international banker on Wall Street sneezes. There’s nothing we can do about it, that’s just a reflex move common for “middle managers”. It took then quite a few years of bowing and scraping to attain the positions of leadership they now hold but they are not the executives who make the operational plans.

The large bankers throughout the world are the ones who determine if we will go to war and for how many days, weeks, months or years that particular war will last. How did they attain this responsibility? They are the ones who finance it. If you want to fight a war with borrowed money, you will do exactly what the banker tells you to do or else the money stops.

Anything you want to do with borrowed money has soft spoken controllers in the background. Today everything America does is with OPM. Maybe the loan guarantee came from a bank in China, Japan or wherever. They have a voice in what the American banker does with the money too. It is very difficult to dig deep enough to come up with actual names but you can hear the voices if you listen.

Move in one direction and if that’s the wrong way to go the price of oil might jump ten cents overnight throwing all of your cost estimates out the window. Have a quiet lunch with a couple of bankers, explain your position and that oil price might just drop five dollars over the next week.

Approach your business plans with moral intentions, honest manners and you’ll have the Lord guiding you.

Mika was not happy with Joe sharing that. She is one of those who will ride the Obama ship to the bottom of the ocean.

Every time I see that woman, I think to myself, "Man, butter wouldn't ever melt in her mouth."

‘_______his terror joy rides in AF ONE over NYC_____’

I’m still not understanding why there has not been a solid explanation of that incident - even if there had to be a bit of ‘creative’ fibbing - - -
New York more than deserves it. And we all want to know.
Whose feet are not being held to the fire???

If a request for permission was presented for that ‘stunt,’ more than lkely ‘they’ may have gotten it - with lots of advance notices to the citizens of New York AND New Jersey; (for from some areas, one can see lots of Manhattan from NJ).

I’m not getting who (many involved?) could be so uncaring and brain-dead after 9-11???

‘Then they will go far.’

Most likely!
I have also observed this lack of interest with what’s going on around them; how to respond with even a simply utterance; to even hear them when they meekly say ‘thank you,’ etc., with kids of all ages.

Some of it may be the ‘don’t talk to
strangers’ admonition - - ?
But we’re also speaking of kids who know us to one degree or another.

Yup, except for the occasional kid who is automatically outgoing, these things must be taught early on, and continually.

Alas, we understand too many kids are ‘raising’ themselves - - -

“And that is, this president has been invisible, he is not a leader”

I’ve had a similar opinion of Obama ever since the May 2008 (or thereabouts) Democratic primary debate - the one where little Georgie Stephanopolous and a guy from Fox had Obama reeling the entire debate.

I’ve said for three years that Obama cannot think on his feet, and is far too thin-skinned and far too easily rattled to be an effective, consistent leader. I see nothing in these debt talks that would cause me to change that opinion.

I think they might run Hillary, or they might simply throw in the towel, live in ignominy for a couple decades, and then plan around a genuinely strong candidate. Either way, they are going to have to restructure and develop a new sort of candidate, preferably not one that is Socialist/Communist.

No, they wanted to be part of a ‘historical moment’ and the Dems wanted someone they thought would be a perfect shoo-in to push through their liberal agenda (black man, they could scream racism at the slightest resistence) and then push all and sundry items through. Such is their complete lack of understanding human nature, these idiots foudn out that racism stopped working the minute Obama was sworn in and I think I am going to enjoy seeing Obama tossed out.
