I will not stand by and watch this great country destroy itself under mediocre leadership that drifts from one crisis to the next, eroding our national will and purpose. We have come together here because the American people deserve better from those to whom they entrust our nation's highest offices, and we stand united in our resolve to do something about it. --Ronald Reagan Nomination Acceptance Speech Republican National Convention Detroit, Michigan July 17, 1980
The tea party is not another political party. It is a group of like-minded individuals who have similar goals, ideals and objectives. It's a movement that calls for changes - smaller limited government, drastically reduced govt. spending, less taxes, a secure border, state's rights, strong national defense. We want our basic freedoms and liberties protected including gun ownership, freedom of speech, freedom of religion, and protection of our property rights. We are comprised of persons from all political venues, from all parts of the country, from all races and genders, all ages with the above issues special to our hearts foremost in our minds as we start the process of cleaning house. Cleaning house the likes of which has never been seen. On both sides of the aisle. We don't have the time or the desire to fight amongst ourselves. Our focus should be laser sharp and pointed at any element in any area of government that does not represent the Constitution or the freedom of American people.--MWESTMOM 2010
I had this discussion with a local teen. He had his IPod stolen from his locker. He said I guess it is ok, the kid was probably poor and needed it more than I did. I was all over him. I said: what an arrogant insulting statement you have made. Assuming poor people are not moral people. Assuming that one cannot have integrity or honor in poverty. You are so wrong, There are many many books about impoverished people acting with integrity. Learn your history so you will not say anything as insulting again. Never mistake immorality for poverty. 233 posted on 11/26/2014 6:31:52 PM by Chickensoup<>

They stopped in a pub to have a sniff. Each being rather proud of their heritage ordered their favorite libation; the Englishman ordered a pint of bitters, the Irishman ordered a shot of Jamesons and the Scotsman ordered a 12-year-old Orangie whisky. Curiously, as the inn-keeper placed their drinks in front of them, three flies attempted kamikaze-suicide in their drinks. None was affronted. The Englishman picked up the fly and tossed it onto the floor, then drank the pint in one quaff. The Irishman, being a manly sort, simply drank the shot in one snort, fly and all. The Scotsman looked at his whisky and began to get red-faced agitated. He picked up the fly in two fingers and began to squeeze it while screaming, Spit it back ya wee bastid!
