I Miss Ronald Reagan

One of the things I liked about Ronald Reagan was his ability to use wit and humor to win the crowd.  Reagan was not popular at times.  He had to make hard decisions with both the economy and the Cold War with the Soviet Union.  Today, he is often ranked as the favorite of all previous Presidents.

When I watch what is happening today, as America's influence in the world has been embarrassed by weak foreign policy through Barack Obama's administration, I wonder, how would Reagan have handled the various situations?  Do you think he'd give up five high level terrorists from Gitmo for one soldier who deserted his post in Afghanistan? Would he have let terrorists kill our ambassador in Benghazi?  Give Russia carte blanche in Ukraine and abandon NATO?  My, how things have changed.

Here's a great one from "The Gipper":

"Government is like a baby. An alimentary canal with a big appetite at one end and no sense of responsibility at the other."  Ronald Reagan


They Get Five, We Get One

My feelings are probably similar to many of you as we heard about the release of American soldier Bowe Bergdahl, who had been captive for almost five years by Afghan rebel fighters.  I thought how great it was to finally have his release and how happy his family must feel.

But, then I heard that we traded five high profile Taliban prisoners from the Guantanamo Bay detainees and I thought, "Why would they do that?"  I heard that Obama broke a decades old rule not to negotiate with terrorists.  Why do you think we have that rule?  SO WE DON'T ANNOUNCE OPEN SEASON ON AMERICANS THROUGHOUT THE WORLD!  Don't you  t h i n k  that would cause some serious problems?

And, then I hear that the President is under law to give Congress a 30 day notice, so they can be consulted on a matter, such as this, that would effect our national security.  Makes sense.  Did the President break the law?

Then I hear stories from soldiers having served at the time Seargent Bergdahl was captured.  Turns out Bergdahl walked away from his post, left a note renouncing his citizenship.  In the very least this is desertion.

Then I heard that it is estimated that over six soldiers lost their lives, perhaps more, as they spent the next 90 days trying to locate Bowe Bergdahl.  Many soldiers serving with him were angry for his treason and the casualties it cost.

When the President stood in the Rose Garden at the White House to announce his celebration of rescuing Bowe, why were there no questions?  Why was there no talk of prosecution for being AWOL? Maybe it's the President who's AWOL?

He allowed our citizens to be massacred in Benghazi without a whisper to defend them, he gave help to Al Quaida in Sudan, he failed to keep our promises in Ukraine and the Russians walked all over us.  He makes deals with Iran and the Palestinians when both are supportive of terrorists.  We give billions away to countries who support terrorists and then we don't have the means to TAKE CARE OF OUR OWN VETERANS??!!

He always seems to offer the 1 to 5 ratio.  They get five, we get one.  Who's side is this president on anyway?

January 17,18th Facebook Special

Until tomorrow, you can receive any of these four framed prints at HALF MY REGULAR PRICE and have FREE SHIPPING.  I only advertise this to my Facebook followers and I will personally sign each one.   I try to make different images available each week as I build up inventory and I find that not everyone can afford the larger custom framed pieces, so these "specials" are usually very popular.  Feel free to ask me questions here on my blog and again, thank you for your interest in my work.

Here are the four framed images available this week:





This belongs in the EMAIL HALL OF FAME......

A Classic
How's this for apocalyptic literature. This was written by a pastor's
wife in biblical prose as a commentary of current events.
It is brilliant.

------------------------   And it came to pass in the Age of Insanity that the people of the land
called America , having lost their morals, their initiative, and their
will to defend their liberties, chose as their Supreme Leader that
person known as "The One."
He emerged from the vapors with a message that had no meaning; but He hypnotized the people telling them, "I am sent to save you." My lack of experience, my questionable ethics, my monstrous ego, and my
association with evil doers are of no consequence. I shall save you
with hope and Change. Go, therefore, and proclaim throughout the
land that he who proceeded me is evil, that he has defiled the nation, and that all he has built must be destroyed. And the people rejoiced, for even though they knew not what "The One" would do, he had promised that it was good; and they believed.           And "The One" said " We live in the greatest country in the world. Help me change everything about it!"
  And the people said, "Hallelujah! Change is good!"
   Then He said, "We are going to tax the rich fat-cats." And the people said "Sock it to them!" "And redistribute their wealth." And the people said, "Show us the money!" And the he said, "redistribution of wealth is good for everybody.."

     And Joe the plumber asked, " Are you kidding me? You're going to
steal my money and give it to the deadbeats??" 

  And "The One"ridiculed and taunted him, and Joe's personal records were hacked and publicized.
   One lone reporter asked, "Isn't that Marxist policy?" And she was banished from the kingdom.

    Then a citizen asked, "With no foreign relations experience and having zero military experience or knowledge, how will you deal with radical terrorists?" And "The One" said, "Simple. I shall sit withthem and talk with them and show them how nice we really are; and theywill forget that they ever wanted to kill us all!" And the people
said, "Hallelujah!! We are safe at last, and we can beat our weapons into free cars for the people!"

    Then "The One" said "I shall give 95% of you lower taxes."  And one, lone voice said, "But 40% of us don't pay ANY taxes." 
So "The One" said, "Then I shall give you some of the taxes the fat-cats pay!"
    And the people said, "Hallelujah! Show us the money!"
    Then "The One" said, "I shall tax your Capital Gains when you sell your homes!"        And the people yawned and the slumping housing market collapsed. And He said. "I shall mandate employer-funded health care for every worker and raise the minimum wage. And I shall give every person unlimited healthcare and medicine and transportation to the clinics." And the people said, "Give me some of that!"
    Then he said, "I shall penalize employers who ship jobs overseas."
    And the people said, "Where's my rebate check?"

    Then "The One" said, "I shall bankrupt the coal industry and electricity rates will skyrocket!" And the people said, "Coal is dirty, coal is evil, no more coal! But we don't care for that part about higher electric rates." So "The One" said, Not to worry. If your rebate isn't enough to cover your expenses, we shall bail you out.
Just sign up with the ACORN and you troubles are over!"
     Then He said, "Illegal immigrants feel scorned and slighted. Let's grant them amnesty, Social Security, free education, free lunches, free medical care, bi-lingual signs and guaranteed housing..." And the people said, "Hallelujah!" and they made
him king!
And so it came to pass that employers, facing spiraling costs and
ever-higher taxes, raised their prices and laid off workers. Others simply gave up and went out of business and the economy sank like unto a rock dropped from a cliff.

The banking industry was destroyed. Manufacturing slowed to a crawl. And more of the people were without a means of support. 
   Then "The One" said, "I am the "the One"- The Messiah - and I'm here to save you! We shall just print more money so everyone will have enough!" But our foreign trading partners said unto Him. "Wait a minute. Your dollar is not worth a pile of camel dung! You will have to pay more... And "The One" said, "Wait a minute. That is
unfair!!" And the world said, "Neither are these other idiotic programs you have embraced. Lo, you have become a Socialist state and a second-rate power. Now you shall play by our rules!"

    And the people cried out, "Alas, alas!! What have we done?" But yea verily, it was too late. The people set upon The One and spat upon him and stoned him, and his name was dung. And the once mighty nation was no more; and the once proud people were without sustenance or shelter or hope. And the Change "The One" had given them was as like unto a poison that had destroyed them and like a whirlwind that consumed all that they had built.
     And the people beat their chests in despair and cried out in anguish, "give us back our nation and our pride and our hope!!" But it was too late, and their homeland was no more.
     You may think this a fairy tale, but it's not. It's happening RIGHT NOW.

THIS really tells it like it is. After reading it -- and before you go into the bathroom to throw-up -- forward it to your friends and those you know who care about our country and what is happening to it under the rule of Commissar Obamanation.

P.S -- Yeah, this is too true to be funny.. Tragic, but not funny; tragic but true.
