They should have taken control of the blown out well on day one. Called in the experts and pumped drilling mud into the thing as soon as possible. The let BP screw around trying to save the well, while they created havoc with the environment all along the gulf coast, was just plain stupid. Yes hindsight is 20/20, but that was a mistake. Now lets see if they own up to it. They bitched about Bush not owning up to his mistakes, lets see if the messiah admits his. You can not let a company screw around trying to save their profits, when it is a disaster.

On a different note... Nashville natural disaster big time. No looting no killing no hell raising at all. Different folks, and a different mayor maybe there is something in that.

The Arizona law. Nobody has read it but everyone is commenting on it. From what I can tell it really just says, we are going to start doing what we should have been doing all along. The government for many years both sides of the political spectrum have been avoiding it.

The homeless shelter here in town had an illegal alien once. They called the immigration office in Charlotte to ask them to come get the guy. He was in trouble of some kind. The Immigration service told the shelter people to bring him to Charlotte or let him go.

The obama story about his aunt and then the little girl in the school whose mother was illegal are examples of the same thing. Some of the aliens just aren't worth the trouble that it would cause to deport them. That is the attitude that is going to cause us all to learn Spanish just to order a cheeseburger

Tis the season

When we all get to be authorities on everything. It's the grand election cycle again. This time for control of the congress. It looks to me like it will be mostly new people. The question is will they be Democrats or Republicans.

Will we the people send back clones of the old guys or try something new. I read the election results of last night with great interest. I also read the comments by so called ordionary folks about the election results.

From the comments that the media is choosing to float around, it appears that most of the black Americans think that conservatives want to bring back slavery I think they believe that every tea party candidate has somehow embedded in their speeches some kind of subliminal message, "Vote for me and pick your own slave". That is the most asinine thing I have ever heard. If you want to control spending the government has to get it's house in order. If you want to get the house in order, it means less give away programs as well as many other things. So does less give aways = slavery somehow. If that is true in people's minds, what kind of thing does that say about our electorate. Are we going to be like Greece, riots in the streets because we have gone bankrupt and can't continue to give away the keys to the treasury.

Where the hell is the sense that we are all in this together gone. We have become a nation of self indulged sheep, ready and willing to be sheered by our government. Come on we the people wake up, we need to sacrifice and we need to do the right thing. The right thing is often painful but it is still the right thing.

And to be honest in this economy, I couldn't afford a slave and I doubt that a majority of the other people in this country could either, so get a grip guys. You can finally be happy with the fact that, We really don't want you.

The numbers going around these days from Washington are truly frightening. I have decided that if I die quickly enough I can be the last person to get all the social security benefits I was promised.

The quality of health care is going to fall for sure. If they cut the payments to doctors, doctors will do less. It's human nature "I will do the amount of work you are paying me for" if I am not getting enough money per patient, then I have to see more patients. That short fall in time has to come somewhere.

Even the availability of care may be in danger for seniors. See the old codgers only if we can't get enough full paying patients, kind of thing. Retirement ages have increased and I expect there to be a means test for benefits soon. That will turn Social Security into a welfare program pure and simple. One of those programs the average Joe funds for those who can not work. Sounds a lot like socialism and I'm one of the pigs at the trough.

So I hope I die before they decide to make cuts that will effect me personally. I no longer go to doctors or take medicines so maybe with a little luck I'll die in my sleep.

Oil and dollars.

Believe me I am not against big business, or even small business, but some things need to be understood. The ticket for the oil spill will be paid by you and me. The cost of the spill will be paid for by high prices at the pump. All the companies will raise prices, so they will make a little windfall profit. More than BP but BP will come out just fine on our dime.

I don't know how everybody else feels about it, but to me I
think Hispanic people in this country, legally or illegally,
made a huge public relations mistake with their recent demonstrations.

I don't blame anybody in the world for wanting to come to the
United States of America , as it is a truly wonderful place.

But when the first thing you do when you set foot on American soil is illegal it is flat out wrong and I don't care how many lala land left heads come out of the woodwork and start trying
to give me sensitivity lessons.

I don't need sensitivity lessons, in fact I don't have any-thing against Mexicans! I just have something against criminals and anybody who comes into this country illegally is a criminal
and if you don't believe it try coming into America from a foreign country without a passport and see how far you get. What disturbs me about the demonstrations is that it's tanta-mount to saying, "I am going to come into your country even if it means breaking your laws and there's nothing you can do about it."

It's an "in your face" action and speaking just for me, I don't like it one little bit and if there were a half dozen pairs of gonads in Washington bigger than English peas it wouldn't be happening.

Where are you, you bunch of lily livered, pantywaist, forked tongued, sorry excuses for defenders of The Constitution? Have you been drinking the water out of the Potomac again?
And even if you pass a bill on immigration it will probably be so pork laden and watered down that it won't mean anything anyway. Besides, what good is another law going to do when you
won't enforce the ones on the books now?

And what ever happened to the polls, guys? I thought you folks were the quintessential finger wetters. Well you sure ain't paying any attention to the polls this time because somewhere around eighty percent of Americans want some thing done about this mess, and mess it is and getting bigger everyday.

This is no longer a problem, it is a dilemma and headed for being a tragedy. Do you honestly think that what happened in France with the Muslims can't happen here when the businesses who hire these people finally run out of jobs and a few million disillusioned Hispanics take to the streets?

If you, Mr. President, Congressmen and Senators, knuckle under on this and refuse to do something meaningful it means that you care nothing for the kind of country your children and grand-children will inherit. But I guess that doesn't matter as long as you get re-elected.
Shame on you.
One of the big problems in America today is that if you have the nerve to say anything derogatory about any group of people (except Christians) you are going to be screamed at by the media and called a racist, a bigot and anything else they can think of to call you.

Well I've been pounded by the media before and I'm still rockin' and rollin' and when it comes to speaking the truth I fear not.
And the truth is that the gutless, gonadless, milksop politicians are just about to sell out the United States of America because they don't have the intestinal fortitude to stand up to face reality.

And reality is that we would never allow any other group of people to have 12 million illegal in this country and turn around and say, "Oh it's ok, ya'll can stay here if you'll just allow us to slap your wrist."

And I know that some of you who read this column are saying "Well what's wrong with that?"
I'll tell you what's wrong with it. These people could be from Mars as far as we know. We don't know who they are, where they are or what they're up to and the way the Congress is going we're not going to.

Does this make sense? Labor force you say? We already subsidize corporate agriculture as it is, must we subsidize their labor as well?
If these people were from Haiti would we be so fast to turn a blind eye to them or if they were from Somalia or Afghanistan ?
I think not.

All the media shows us are pictures of hard working Hispanics who have crossed the border just to try to better their life.
They don't show you pictures of the Feds rounding up members of MS 13, the violent gang who came across the same way the decent folks did. They don't tell you about the living conditions of the Mexican illegal some fat cat hired to pick his crop.

I want to make two predictions.

No. 1: This situation is going to grow and fester until it erupts in violence on our streets while the wimps in Washington drag their toes in the dirt and try to figure how many tons of political hay they can make to the acre.

No 2: Somebody is going to cross that border with some kind of weapon of mass destruction and set it off in a major American city after which there will be a backlash such as this country has never experienced and the Capitol building in Washington will probably tilt as Congressmen and Senators rush to the other side of the issue.

I don't know about you but I would love to see just one major politician stand up and say, "I don't care who I make mad and I don't care how many votes I lose, this is a desperate situation and I'm going to lead the fight to get it straightened out."
I don't blame anybody for wanting to come to America , but if you don't respect our immigration laws why should you respect any others?
And by the way, this is America and our flag has stars and stripes Please get that other one out of my face.

God Bless America

Charlie Daniels

I am not against immigration -
just come through like everyone else
Get a sponsor;
have a place to lay your head;
have a job;
pay your taxes;
live by the rules;
as all other immigrants have in the past


Think about this:
If you don't want to forward this
for fear of offending someone,

Will we still be the Country of choice
and still be America if we continue
to make the changes forced on us by
people from other countries who came
to live in America because it is the
Country of Choice?

Think about it!

All we have to say is, when will
Someone do something about
We've gone so far the other way,
bent over backwards to not
offend anyone, that I am now
being offended.
But it seems no one has a problem
with that.

"In God We Trust"
is our national motto. This is not
some Christian, right wing, political slogan.
We adopted this motto because Christian men
and women - on Christian principles - founded
this nation, and this is clearly documented. It is certainly appropriate to display it on the walls
of our schools.
It is Time for America to Speak up
If you agree - pass this along;even to your Congressmen.
if you don't agree - delete it!

I got this from an email and thought so highly of it that I decided to put it here. Like the man said, It's how I feel like it or not.
