DEMOCRATS ARE BLOCKING RESOLUTION TO HONOR LADY THATCHER

Katherine Rosario

April 11, 2013

One would naturally think it impossible that anyone would hesitate – even for an instant – to honor the woman who tackled communism head on as prime minister of Great Britain. Lady Margaret Thatcher was a principled politician who helped to foster the special relationship between Great Britain and the United States that we all benefit from today.

A Senate resolution to honor Lady Thatcher was supposed to pass last night. However, per well placed sources on the Hill, Democrats have a hold on the resolution.

To refuse to honor a woman of such great historical and political significance, who was deeply loyal to the United States, is petty and shameful. One truly has to wonder, what is it about Lady Thatcher that gives them pause? Her unfaltering commitment to freedom? Or perhaps the way she fought for individual liberty and limited government?

The House used traditional bereavement procedures, the same model they used for John F. Kennedy. It’s a simple, solemn means of honoring the individual by passing a resolution and immediately adjourning. Similarly, Great Britain’s House of Commons was recalled, bringing members of Parliament back from vacation to honor Lady Thatcher.

Those actions were a fitting response to the death of one of the world’s greatest post-World War II leaders.

“One would naturally think it impossible that anyone would hesitate – even for an instant – to honor the woman who tackled communism head on as prime minister of Great Britain.”

There’s your answer, right there.

America’s communists hate Thatcher precisely because she stood in the way of World Communism.

Makes sense that communists would resent a woman who defeated Soviet communism, doesn’t it?

Maybe the Dems would vote for it if Lady Thatcher had lied about being 1/32 Cherokee.

Lady Thatcher was a great Lady that fought socialism and communism.

This shows just where these RATS stand and it’s not with a Constitutional Republic.

Thatcher delayed the rise of communism for 30 years. Due to circumstances she could never have imagined, the most powerful country in the world is now going over to the dark side, but she did all that could be asked to preserve, protect, and defend freedom.

This leaves me sputtering with rage.

My theory is that the dimbocraps hate her because she had way bigger balls than they do.

Bears repeating:

America’s communists hate Thatcher precisely because she stood in the way of World Communism.

This should also put to bed any and all questions about whether or not the Democrat Party is really the US Communist Party.

If people now still cannot see that our government has been infiltrated with men and women of communist ideology, then they have their heads up their respective arses so far that there is no sense in even reasoning with them rationally.

Nothing surprises me anymore.

I have lost respect for the Dems/socialists a long, long time ago.

Will O Blah ma ( who blames British colonialism for supposedly torturing his father) attend Margaret Thatcher’s funeral or will he send Biden or Bill Clinton?

It is oppressive. Odd you should use that word, I was using it in conversation with my co-worker today. Often I have heard the word in reference to taxes, which are NOW one of the evils. (taxing rainwater!? THAT idea is from the depths of hell) I feel the oppression, too, and puzzle as to what can be done. I wonder how much our angel, such as Israel's Michael, is enduring at the hands of the Enemy.

I am NOT praying enough, but don't know when the oppression is so heavy.

Not hard to puzzle out.

The commies in the senate hate Margaret Thatcher like Obama hates Winston Church - and for similar reasons.

There are no democrats as we used to know them. They are ALL communists, every last stinkin’ one of em. Once you realize that, a lot of things start falling in place, including this action on Thacher. Communists have taken over the country. Get used to it. It’s going to get a lot worse before it gets any better.

I've never felt it this heavy, either. Ever. Even during the Clinton years.

This is evil, pure and simple...

Not a single one of the scumbags you mentioned would be appropriate to attend Lady Thatcher’s funeral.
To HELL with the idea that a state attendee must be of high office, they are all pigsh#t liars and communists. Why don’t we just send one of our best, former congressman/retired Colonel West comes to mind.

I know they are all scumbags. But the fact is one or more of them will attend the funeral of this grand lady from humble origins. I am hoping they will feel thoroughly diminished in comparison to her, as they should. Not that that’s going to happen with these egotists in power.

Am also wondering how many times the word “I” is used when they offer their faux faint praise of Baroness Margaret Thatcher.

I feel sorry for any of our cherished leaders that are unfortunate enough to die during a demorat presidency. At least Reagan died during the Bush presidency. I hope George H.W. Bush survives The One’s presidency so that his wartime service can be dutifully honored.

Carter couldn’t go at a better time; that is unless Jeremiah Wright is the next president.

All it takes is one Senator to put a hold on it. My money is on that disgusting old commie Bernie Saunders. But all those Democrats are disgusting so any one of them could be the culprit. Vermin, all of them.

Yes, it wouldn’t be surprising if commie Sanders is the leader but I have to believe he has some followers.

Vermin is a very good description for the majority of Rats.
