Hump Day Report: WWWD
It’s fitting to honor George Washington, the Father of Our Country, today. He was an extraordinary individual (and my favorite President.) To realize the sacrifices and incredible leader he was, one needs to put into perspective the times in which he lived. Washington could have lived his life very comfortably under British rule. He was a wealthy man (gee….a 1 percenter??) with a beautiful home and lots of land. But his country needed him and he stepped forward. This video from Dick Morris explains how Washington was a true hero and leader, not just in ways we commonly know:
And this article from The Heritage Foundation explains why it’s ridiculous that we no longer celebrate Washington’s Birthday as a singular holiday: George Washington and the Real Meaning of Presidents Day “George Washington, the “indispensable man” of the Revolution who was rightly extolled for being “first in war, first in peace, and first in the hearts of his countrymen,” has now been lumped together with the likes of James Buchanan, Jimmy Carter, Franklin Pierce and John Tyler.”
God bless you, President Washington! Your beloved country is going through a rough spot right now. We’ll do our best to set it right again.
Washington would not approve. Democrat Blocks Rand Paul’s Attempt to Cut Aid to Egypt Because of Its ‘Insolence and Disregard’ | CNSNews.com “A senior Democratic senator Thursday shot down an attempt by Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) to call up an amendment cutting off all U.S. aid to Egypt unless the authorities allow Americans being detained there to leave the country.” (Hint: the “senior Democratic senator” is from CA and has the initials “B.B.” she should be added to the picture above.)
ICYMI: House votes to expand drilling, approve Keystone XL – Common American Journal “House lawmakers on Thursday approved a plan to authorize the Keystone XL pipeline and expand drilling offshore and in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. The 237-187 victory for Republican leaders…”
Connecticut?? Taxpayers Paying For Illegal Immigrants in Connecticut “Generally when you think of illegal immigrants you tend to think of the southern states from Florida across to California. One of the last states you may think of as having a problem with illegal immigrants is Connecticut, but guess again.”
Well, well, well!! Obama Contradicted: HHS Banned Determining Whether Mandate Was ‘Cost Effective’ | CNSNews.com “There would be no consideration of cost effectiveness. That was the explicit condition that the Department of Health and Human Services imposed on the panel of health-care experts it commissioned to develop the “preventive services” mandate that will require virtually all health-insurance plans in the United States to cover sterilizations and contraceptives—including those that cause abortions.”
Then there’s this: As Obama pushes new regulations, UK eyes privatizing its health care – Common American Journal “Filmmaker Michael Moore glorified the United Kingdom’s National Health Service in his 2007 documentary ”Sicko,” making a cult film argument that socialized medicine works. But Prime Minister David Cameron, the Tory MP who heads a coalition government in England, is apparently not a Moore fan: He is working to partially privatize the NHS, beginning a massive outsourcing of medical services to private health care providers throughout the U.K.”
Looking forward to this one! Check out the comments from the OWS…yeah, these miscreants represent 99% of the country.
One more video in honor of President’s Day – did you know Richard Pryor played the first Black President over 30 years ago????? (Shaka to Trisha)
Final Thought: “The General hopes and trusts that every officer and man will endeavor to live and act as becomes a Christian soldier defending the dearest rights and liberties of his country” – George Washington, General Order, 9 July 1776
