Homeschoolers in Germany


Hello, people! Yall might wanna take a look at this and then scream a few choice words to your friendly Washington Representative. This is bad, bad news. We CANNOT let this happen. And, while you're at it, be sure to let your Rep. know that voting to continue the '01 and '03 tax cuts would be a really good thing!

I'm Just Saying...

Okay, I'll be the first person to admit that I'm not some sort of genius here. There are a ton of people who are way smarter than me... however, I've been doing some thinking about the state of our Union. I thought I'd share some of my musings.

1. How hard is it to get our brains around the thought of defending the borders of the U.S.? I mean, really? How frakin' hard is this? After 9/11 I would think that closing the borders to the bad guys would be like, oh, I don't know, NUMBER 1 on the 'to-do' list!!!! Let's get real here... there are bad people in the world who want to kill us... and guess what? IT'S NOT OUR FAULT! These jerks want to whack us because they are EVIL. End of story. But for some strange reason, that doesn't seem to really sink in with the stiffs up in the Beltway. Maybe because they don't live in the real world? Perhaps because they are surrounded by body guards and massive security?? Hmmm???

Here's a thought, close the stinkin' borders, deport the people who are here illegally and make them do it the right way. Why is that so hard? I am over the top tired of hearing about "immigration issues." It's not that difficult a concept to grasp... If you snuck over here without proper papers... you get to leave. You broke our law. You don't get to stay. I don't care what sob story you have. You have to do it the legal way.

The End.

And don't get pissed at me. If you want to get pissed at somebody, then get pissed at the jokers at INS.

That may sound mean, but look... the number one job of the U.S. government is to protect its' citizens. That would be the people who were born here, or who have become citizens by doing it the right way. And guess what, we live in a pretty dangerous world. We don't have the luxury of giving people the benefit of the doubt. I remember 9/11 like it way yesterday... and now, a little over 6 years later, I'm still pretty hacked off. But this time, I'm pissed at my government for not protecting me. It's shameful that so many politicians put the so-called rights of people from other countries in front of the safety and well-being of the citizens of this country!

And that brings me to another point... Why is it that when some people from other countries come over here, they start demanding stuff? I'm a little confused as to why we have to have signs in languages other than English (the language of the United States, whether anyone likes it or not). And, I find it a little (okay, a lot) galling that someone from another country would start demanding anything. They came here... They left their homeland and made the choice to move here.... So, why are they demanding to be catered to??? What am I missing here? It strikes me as more than a little ungrateful and petulant.

But, you know... as long as the citizens keep hitting the snooze button, nothing is going to change. It's going to keep getting worse. The ACLU and other so-called "special interest" groups are running this country, whether anyone wants to admit it or not. The concept of government of the people for the people has been lost somewhere along the way. And I fear that we have sold our collective souls.

I'm just saying...

Wake UP ...

Jumping the Shark... Kinda

Okay, does anyone else here think we've jumped the shark just a little (read: ALOT) here as of late?

For those of you who don't know, the House of Rep's defeated the override of President Bush's veto of the SCHIPS. (The Republicans who actually care about the people they represent got the 2/3 majority needed... whoo-hoo.) And brilliant man that he is, Rep. Stark makes a lame (and really offensive) remark about President Bush.

Does anyone out there think there's something kinda goofy about this?


At all?

First of all, let me say that I (and most Republicans) support the SCHIPS program... as it is. I am all about extending it for children of poor and working poor families. But I am NOT, repeat, NOT is support of extending it to families with an average annual income of $61,000... not when the average ( AVERAGE EVERY DAY, ACROSS THE NATION, AVERAGE) family income is $48,000.

That's just poor business. And let's face it, running a country is a business.

And I don't buy the line that the extra $31 mil will come from a $1 tax on cigarettes... Yeah... that's great. Really comforting. The future dead person's family can comfort themselves that their loved one killed himself with death sticks... but, gosh darn, he was helping middle class children.

Please don't miss the sarcasm dripping from that statement.

And one more thing... I thought that SCHIPS was for POOR kids. Not middle class kids.

Good grief... Thank you to the Congressmen and women who used their heads and kept the President's veto intact... Shame on the pinheads who tried to override it... and shame on Rep. Stark.

Words Aren't Enough...

Yeah, here's one of the 'best and brightest' spouting off... I am stunned.

Prayer Request

Hey, I have a prayer request. My Aunt Carol has been battling tongue cancer for a while now. She went to a cancer specialist place today and found out that the cancer has spread & is much worse than even her primary doctor had thought it was. She was told that her entire tongue would have to be removed... along with her voice box AND part of her jaw bone (it has spread into her jaw bone). And even then, they are not sure that this is really going to save her life. It's a bit like burning down the barn to kill the mice, in a way. She'll have to be fed through a tube for the rest of her life. This is pretty devastating news to us. My aunt is in her late 40's. She's the youngest of 7 kids.

Please pray for Aunt Carol.

Please pray for my family, especially my Grandparents. They are both in their 80's and this is going to be very hard on them. Carol has two children who are both under 20 and one granddaughter who's not 2 yet.
