Memorial Day

Posted by TheJOTUS on May 31, 2010

A stark reminder that freedom is not free.¬† To quote George S. Patton “It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather we should thank God that such men lived.”

I have two videos for you today.  The first is a tribute to those who have fallen defending our country.  The second is the great Ray Charles singing America the Beautiful.

Indeed it is.

Happy Birthday To The 3rd, Maybe 4th Best President Ever

Posted by TheJOTUS on February 6, 2010

That president would be Ronald Reagan and he would be 99 today.

Reagan is a great conservative hero for what he wasn’t as well as for what he was.  In an era when people thought the portal to political leadership was a degree from an elite university and a lifetime of working within the establishment.  Reagan was a small-town midwesterner that went from an obscure college and spent most of his adult life doing other things; a sportscaster, an actor, etc.  He was well into middle age before he entered into electoral politics.

This baffled his critics, who believed that the true measure of a 50-something man of accomplishment was a degree he‚Äôd gotten when he was 22.¬† Yet instead he was much¬†like the rest of us:¬† An ordinary man who became an extraordinary president.¬† And¬†today we may be¬†seeing the ultimate tribute to Reagan–Millions of Americans are rising up and doing the Reagan thing for themselves.

Reagan’s first inaugural:

Let’s recap a few points:

“We are a nation that has a government, not the other way around…”
“Our government has no power except by the people…”
“All of us need to be reminded that the federal government did not create the states, the states created the federal government…”
“It is no coincidence that our present troubles parallel and are proportionate to the intervention and intrusion in our lives that result from unnecessary and excessive growth of the federal government…”
“We can and will resolve the problems, which now confront us.¬† And after all, why shouldn’t we believe that.¬† We.¬† Are.¬†Americans.”

Sweet Jesus, this guy sure can give a speech.¬† Notice how he doesn’t nod back and forth like he is watching a tennis match like Obama does.

Presidential.

Quote Of The Day

Posted by TheJOTUS on February 6, 2010

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), appearing before the Democratic National Committee winter meeting this morning, was illustrating the diversity of the Democratic Party by painting the touching scene of FDR’s final train ride from Georgia to Hyde Park. Then she stumbled.

“There were farmers and black Americans, whatever the name was in those days, Afric- uh — large numbers of African-Americans, poor people, middle-class people, everyone … they lined the tracks to pay their respects,” Pelosi told an audience at the Capitol Hilton.

Yeah…whatever those people were called back then.¬†

Nancy Pelosi.¬† Splitting atoms with….Her….Mind!¬† And staring into your soul……

A Whole Bunch Of Classic Conservative Quotes

Posted by TheJOTUS on August 27, 2009

Yeah, I know I just had a “Quote of the Day” post, but so what?¬† Wanna fight about it?

There are actually 40 of them.  Well, I am sure there are more but 40 seemed to be where he left off.  Here are a few of my favs:

3) All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing. — Edmund Burke

4) The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings; the inherent virtue of socialism is the equal sharing of miseries. — Winston Churchill

12) The prudent capitalist will never adventure his capital… if there exists a state of uncertainty as to whether the Government will repeal tomorrow what it has enacted today. — William Henry Harrison

18) Compassion is defined not by how many people are on the government dole but by how many people no longer need government assistance. — Rush Limbaugh

24) People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf. — George Orwell

29) Millions of individuals making their own decisions in the marketplace will always allocate resources better than any centralized government planning process. — Ronald Reagan

37) …Conservatives have excellent credentials to speak about human rights. By our efforts, and with precious little help from self-styled liberals, we were largely responsible for securing liberty for a substantial share of the world’s population and defending it for most of the rest. — Margaret Thatcher

And finally, a list of Ronald Reagan quotes.  I know, I know.  I am too good to you guys.

Quote Of The Day

Posted by TheJOTUS on August 23, 2009

A fantastic quote of the day¬†referring to Nancy Mcbotox Pelosi’s comment on townhall greenhouse protesters ‚Äúcarrying swastikas and symbols like that to a town meeting on healthcare‚ÄĚ.

Boo

Boo

‚ÄúI will remind you. A little history lesson. The Nazis were the National Socialist Party. They were leftists. They took over the finances. They took over the car industry. They took over health care in their country. If Nancy Pelosi wants to find a Swastika maybe the first place she should look is the sleeve of her own arm.‚ÄĚ

Video here.

A rather interesting explanation of our form of government.  Kind of long, but I think worth the time:

Sarah Palin Says 500 Million Jobs Lost Every Month

Posted by TheJOTUS on February 8, 2009

Oh wait, that wasn’t Sarah Palin?¬† Oh that’s right, it was uber boob, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who clearly has no idea how many people are in America.¬† Not to mention, work, in America.

Perhaps she was including the people in the¬†eight additional states we have……

According to Pelosi, if we don’t get some sort of economic recovery soon, we are on pace to lose 6 billion jobs this year.¬† Just shy of¬† the total population on planet Earth.¬† Man, that is what I call a Depression.¬† Oh, I forgot about the 3 million jobs the current proposed spending bill¬†will create.¬† Soooooo, we are not as bad as I thought.

Whew!

You would think this was just a slip of the tongue; however, knowing the democrats ability to fear monger one can’t be too sure.¬†

But one thing¬†is certain: When you have a politician unable to¬†differentiate between “thousands” and¬†“millions,” you have a problem.
