When a person’s not doing his job sometimes you’ve got to fire him.

This is from Denise Maul in Alabama.

Denise added this:

This chair was used for over twenty years in a daycare my mother operated IN OUR HOME. Money from that venture bought my piano when I was 9, my prom dress when I was 18 and helped pay my way to nursing school with the scholarships I received.

I do NOT recall any member of government picking the vegetables or cooking the meals that fed those children, vacuuming the crumbs after meals,
kissing thier booboos or changing thier diapers alongside my mother, father and me.

I do not remember, when a parent “ran late” or had an evening appointment, any member of govenrnment waiting patiently with a child so my mother could attend my high school volleyball games or a church function.

I DO remember the laughter in our home, the kids who grew up and had kids, the games in the yard, the parties for special occasions, the needs that were met in our home because of the income from that small business.

YES, my mother DID build that.

    OH.MY.WORD! Did you see the last picture in that calender? The one for August? It show’s one of Obama’s purported birth certificates accompanied by a Bible verse John3:16, For God so loved the world he sent his only begotten Son . . . .

    What over the top symbolism – not to mention how completely against Judeo-Christian teachings! They are literally saying that Obama is the Messiah!

  • [email protected]

    Yep, it is absolutely empty chair day in Charlotte. Dems must be sweating and bribing people onto the busses to try to get a decent showing.

    @#4 – The headline on Yahoo reads

    Democrats in North Carolina cobble convention crowd together bit by bit

    College students from across North Carolina will arrive in Charlotte by the busload. Same with members of predominantly black churches in neighboring South Carolina.

    Odd they are having to bus in members of black churches in South Carolina, since the Charlotte area is heavily black.

  • bman

    Didn’t know about this (family life), but I think I’ll put out my folding chair with a couple of golf clubs leaning on it. Should be interesting, there are a lot of obama stickers on this road.

    As a Canadian I can freely understand your idea of the empty chair. Good luck dumping your Lazyboy..

  • SoLongSong

    I’ll probably be the only one in my town of 600, but I don’t care!! The chair is sitting there, made of metal – and we’re supposed to get lightning today.

    Could be interesting.

  • SoLongSong

    Speaking for myself, thanks, ronbins111! “Lazy Boy”…wish I had one to put out there.

    HOWEVER, I had to put a chair out that I didn’t care for, because here in Iowa people put stuff out they no longer want and people take it…useful, unless you have a useless president you want to represent.

    Speaking of EMPTY CHAIRS. . .

    Seems many black churches in SC are coming to fill up Bank Of America Stadium when Obama gives his speech so as not to look empty–election.html

    If you see more than 30% Black in Audience (Blacks only 13% of population) then you know OBAMA will loose. . .

    This chair has a comment of sorts to go with it. After one of the worse attacks on American soil, President Bush stopped golfing.

    Well, this is not anything like the sacrifice and murder of thousands of Americans.

    But for Obama to golf and give union, global warming, Obama care is first and foremost attention while the jobless rate is so high, factories closed, leaks of national security, voter fraud, Fast and furious, debt HE STILL FIND TIME TO GOLF AND BUY A $35 MILLION DOLLAR HOME IN HAWAII.

    Think of things some talented artist could do with a toilet, a national debt clock, a roll of toilet paper that looks like money (and another one that looks like miniature Constitutions)….the sky is the limit.

    Hollywood’s John Cusack rips into president

    [“Mr. Obama, the Christian president with the Muslim-sounding name,
    would heed the admonitions of neither religion’s prophets about making
    war and do what no empire or leader, including Alexander the Great,
    could do: he would, he assured us ‘get the job done in Afghanistan.’
    And so we have our democratic president receiving the Nobel Peace
    Prize as he sends 30,000 more troops to a ten-year-old conflict in a
    country that’s been war-torn for 5,000 years.

    “Why? We’ll never fully know. Instead, we got a speech that
    was stone bullsh– and an insult to the very idea of peace.

    “We can’t have it both ways. Hope means endless war? Obama
    has metaphorically pushed all in with the usual international and
    institutional killers; and in the case of war and peace, literally.

    “To sum it up: more war. So thousands die or are maimed; generations
    of families and veterans are damaged beyond imagination; sons and
    daughters come home in rubber bags. But he and his satellites get their
    four more years.”]

    Just how wrong did the media get Clint Eastwood?

    Admittedly, I am late to evaluating Clint Eastwood’s RNC performance. However, the fact that the pundit class is still critiquing it days later is one indicator of how shrewd it was as political theater. Accordingly, it is worth noting just how wrong some of the Eastwood analysis has been, even from those defending the speech.

    The harsh, conventional wisdom about Eastwood’s decidedly unconventional approach to the convention is that it was the ramblings of a senile old man. Even may of Eastwood’s defenders have described it as rambling. This likely makes Eastwood’s day.

    After all, who is Clint Eastwood? He is one of the top actors, directors and producers of motion pictures in the world. Most of the world — and almost certainly everyone tuning in to the RNC Thursday night — knows this. Yet most of the analyses of his RNC appearance are based on the notion that we were not witnessing acting. That mass suspension of disbelief may be the highest tribute Eastwood will ever be paid as an actor. If you think the Eastwood on stage was the only Eastwood there is, watch him promoting J. Edgar on The Daily Show last November. I have little doubt he will be equally sharp promoting Trouble With the Curve in the next few weeks.

    i was glad that clint eastwood also mentioned lawyers in his presentation. people should really take time to think about how much control this small minority of the people(one third of one percent)have on the government of this country. although lawyers make a small part of the population they have a virtual monopoly on the goverment of this country. every judge is a lawyer, the majority of legislators and a large part of the executive branch also. the last four president have all been graduates of ivy league laws schools as well as every current sepreme court justice.

    i believe the massive proliferation of laws and regulations is a consequence of this situation. the more laws and regulations, the more business for the legal profession. it shouldn’t be a surprise that the legal profession becoming the richest profession coninsides with its takeover of the government.

    clintwood’s statement that “politicans are employees of the people” is the way it was intended to be but is not true if the politicans have so much of your money that they control you instead of you controlling them
