This is good

"God is only limited by our faith."

Very convicting.

"One of the most naive notions is that politicians are trying to solve
the country's problems, just because they say so---or say so loudly or
inspiringly. Politicians' top priority is to solve their own problem, which
is how to get elected and then re-elected. Barack Obama is a politician
through and through, even though pretending that he is not is his special
strategy to get elected." ---Thomas Sowell

"I'm going to call in the Joint Chiefs of Staff and give
them a new mission, and that is to bring the war in Iraq to a close. We are
going to get out." ---would-be commander in chief Barack Obama, who doesn't
understand that the Joint Chiefs don't have operational command of U.S. forces

Just blame "Big Oil": "Once again, the oilman in the White House is
echoing the demands of Big Oil. The Bush plan [to open more offshore oil
drilling] is a hoax. It will neither reduce gas prices nor increase energy
independence... If the President wants to bring down prices in the next
two weeks, not the next two decades, he should free our oil by releasing
a small portion of the more than 700 million barrels of oil we have put in
the Strategic Petroleum Reserve." ---House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-OPEC)

This really kills me. I don't know how anyone can be this disengenuous and continue breathing. Let me see if I understand this...If we drill for oil and send it along a pipeline to a refinery it will neither reduce our dependence on foreign oil nor will it help ease gas prices. Sure thing Nancy. Give me a break. Just say that you hate the President more than you want to help the American people because that is the bottom line. You would rather bow before the altar of the ultra-liberal environmental hippies than support an initiative that would help millions and millions of hard-working lower and middle class families make ends meet. You aren't here to help. You are here for the ego trip and to try and get re-elected. Don't ever again pretend that you care because you don't. Same goes for my Congressman, Russ Carnahan, who used much of the same language in responding to my pleas to support additional drilling. No one is saying we shouldn't pursue alternative energy sources. We are and we will and that is the long, long-term solution. But we aren't going to be off of fossil fuels in this country for many decades so can we please actually take some action and start looking out for our economic interests. Why is Congress' approval rating in the single digits under Democrat leadership? Gee...I wonder.

"Syria is an amazing country. It is not at all what I expected... I've never felt safer." ---Barbara Walters of ABC's "The View" on her trip to Syria ++ "So where does this misconception come from that Syria's an issue?" ---The View's Whoopi Goldberg to Barbara Walters ++ "Well, first of all the country is on our terrorist list. They are against the war in Iraq... And they are neighbors and friends of Iran... And they are friendly with both Hamas and Hezbollah who are two groups that we consider unfriendly groups [truth in labeling: terrorists] in Israel... They have
also been accused of allowing people and terrorists to cross the border into
Iraq. They say they do not do that and they haven't and they've really cut
down on it." ---Barbara Walters

Which is it Babs...they don't do it or they cut down on it? Tough to keep the lies straight ain't it? I think it is time to take "The View" off the air. Is this really helping the women of America?
