Good Morning, Honeys!.
Come on in, pull up a chair, have a donut, and relax.
Share your thoughts.
Good morning, y’all. Thank goodness prom night is over!! Here’s Doc this a.m. – he was as underwhelmed as the rest of us.
“Our generation’s “Sputnik” moment will be defeating the mountain of debt Barack Øbama dropped on us.”
I am really sick of Øbama the boring blowhard. Øbama is a legend in his own mind and a never ending whining gasbag in everyone else’s.
Wouldn’t it be refreshing if some mature democrat just once told him , “To grow up or shut up.”
But JRD,old friend,that would be raaaaacist!
I already spoke to my Congressman Allen West and asked him to do it.
Congressman West’s weekly letter follows.
Wednesday, I voted to repeal Obamacare, and of course there were the typical antics from the left. The liberal activist groups were outside the building handing out their disinformation palm cards. Inside the left wing, sponsored unions were busy with their “robo-calls” to our office. I find it utterly hilarious to receive calls from targeted individuals who truly have no lucid comprehension, they just repeat a talking point script. My advice to these union groups, don’t waste your resources on me.
It was very fulfilling to insert my voting card, press “Yes”, and watch the green “Y” appear next to my name on repealing Obamacare. The following day we voted on HR 9 to replace it and our House committees will get to work to create free market solutions to improve our American healthcare system.
This past week, I had my first luncheon as a member of the Congressional Black Caucus. Prior to the meeting commencing, I had a good chat with Chairman Cleaver (D-Missouri). I look forward to being a contributing member of this body politic and reaching the goals and objectives as specified in the organization’s mission statement. I believe that the conservative principles and values which I espouse are critical for the success of the black community.
I had many meetings and interviews in the office this week, but most memorable and satisfying was the one with Juliana Taimoorazy, president of the Iraqi Christian Relief Council. She is an Iraqi Christian woman who is now advocating for the Christian community she left behind some years ago. Coming off the horrendous attacks against the Coptic Christian community in Egypt, this is an issue to which we need to commit our attention and vigilance. I gave Ms. Taimoorazy my pledge to be a spokesperson for this cause. I shall not be tolerant of the intolerant because when tolerance becomes a one way street it leads to cultural suicide.
That is why I found it comical that the head of the South Florida Council for American Islamic Relations (CAIR), contacted me requesting a meeting. My response to him is as the Commander of the 101st Airborne Division, BG McAuliffe, at Bastogne when asked to surrender by the Germans…….”Nuts”.
On Friday, I had a super meeting with the Ft. Lauderdale Chamber of Commerce leadership. We are going to resurrect the Ft. Lauderdale “fly-in” to Washington DC for the local business and community leaders. We have tentatively set aside May 2011, so be on the lookout for details. It will be my honor to revive this honored tradition first started by Congressman E Clay Shaw.
Saturday, I was up and out for my morning ten mile run along Ft. Lauderdale beach, over the 17th Street causeway, and back to our starting point at George English park. It is always a thrill to run at sunrise with my fellow running enthusiasts, and constituents. I am an honorary member of the Friends in Training (FIT) group and they have decided to allow me to host them in October as we shall run the Army Ten Miler race.
Later, I had the distinct pleasure of being the guest speaker at the Broward Navy League new officer installation luncheon. It was held aboard one of the luxurious Port Everglades cruise ships. Needless to say, before and after speaking, I had to endure abuse from the former Naval service officers referencing the inability of the Army football team to defeat Navy.
I made a simple pledge, if ever I become Commander-in-Chief of our Armed Services……..I shall suspend the entire Navy football team prior to the traditional Army-Navy game…….Go Army Beat Navy……PLEASE!
Sunday again, up early with my running mates, Juan and Mike and we did our 8 mile canal run, and since I am the oldest, these guys keep sandbagging and sprinting at the end, jerks.
Angela and I spent our Sunday morning with the Jewish community in Jupiter Florida at the ground breaking ceremony of the Chabad Lubavitch of Jupiter. Special hat tip to Rabbi and Rabbetzin Barash for their visionary leadership, resolve, and perseverance in this quest. I look forward to returning for the dedication of the center. The wrap up to the week came as we had a nice quiet Sunday brunch with friends and supporters, Howard and Marilyn Parmet, at Frenchmen’s Reserve in Palm Beach Gardens. If you are ever at the brunch there, try the waffles.
This evening, Angela and I will attend the White House reception for the new members of the 112th Congress. I have not been in the White House since I was a little boy with Mom. If anyone wants to know what the American Dream looks like, I AM LIVING IT.
On Tuesday, I shall sit in the House chamber for my first State of the Union address. I believe in tradition and therefore shall sit in the appropriate section designated for those calling themselves Republican. I shall not take part in the kindergarten style tactics of having a recess buddy. Could it be that the President is concerned about his first foray into the House of Representatives not having a majority throng cheering his every word? President Bush delivered his two final State of the Union addresses while his own party was in the minority, not asking for special accommodations, so should President Obama.
There is something to be said about tradition. It is respectful, but principled.
Steadfast and Loyal,
Thanks for sharing these messages. For some reason Congressman West isn’t sending them out to his Montana constituents. Hmmm….
AuntieLib, Congressman West is posting his weekly message on his FB page. It is Congressman Allen West on FB.
Oooooh, this is a good one – points out what a fraud The Won is…
Be careful over at Michelle Malkin’s – there’s a pic of Bela Pelosi and Boehner that you’ll never get out of your brain!
And with this little smack-down, I’ll leave you honeys to a good day – off to the salt mine!
Why Today Is 1979, Not 1995
By Peter Ferrara
The Democrats are married to the view that this will be 1995 all over again. But it is actually much worse for them than 1979, because Øbama’s leftward extremism has awakened the grassroots, as witnessed by the rise of the Tea Party. In this environment, the 1995 attack on the Republican budget because it doesn’t spend enough will be as politically fatal as Øbamacare was in the midterms. This year, there will be a widespread grassroots expression that even the Republican budget spends too much. Sen. Jim DeMint and his cohorts are already fanning those flames. That argument will resonate at the grassroots, and among independents in particular, throughout 2012.
Meanwhile, the Øbamunistas are back to their calculated deception, and so certain that us Homer Simpsons out here will fall for it again. Investor’s Business Daily framed the issue exactly correctly in its lead editorial yesterday, entitled “The Grand Pivot — Who’s He Kidding?” The editorial began, “Will the man who conned the public into believing he was a moderate, but who has governed as the most immoderate leftist in the country’s history, now try to pull the same con so he can be elected again?”
In the business world, this strategy is called “bait and switch.” In politics, it’s called “Boob Bait for Bubbas.”
Another overhyped ploy is the appointment of William Daley from Wall Street as the new White House Chief of Staff. For the significance of that, witness former Assistant to the President for Economic Policy Larry Summers, whose widely cited academic work included the demonstration that extended unemployment benefits increases unemployment. With Summers at his side, President Øbama has given us 99 weeks of extended unemployment benefits, to go with stubbornly high unemployment. But the titans of Big Business, where the real Homer Simpsons live and work, have already fallen for the same ploy.
What has not been widely recognized, but soon will be, is how disastrously vulnerable America is to another recession right now.

Obama 2012 Campaign Manager: John McCain
By Jeannie DeAngelis
I watched the replay of Greta this morning,and she had Princess Botoxia on.(How she can talk without moving her lips is a mystery,)
she actually said:”we created more private sector jobs in the last year than Bush did in eight years.”(sic)
Bush saw 5.5 million jobs actually created (4.5% unemployment) and all we heard from the LSM was it was a ‘jobless recovery.’
As late as 2008,unemployment was about 6%.In two years its jumped to over 10% and they’re still spewing this drek.Madam,not only are you a liar,you are a damn liar!
