Change We Can Believe in...

Remember these words being spouted out for the past 2 yrs? Do you remember who said them? I am sure you do. These are the words that got us our first 1/2 black, 1/2 Caucasian president.

I just have one question. WHERE IS THE CHANGE????

Just a couple of the promises that were spewed out of the King Liberal's mouth for the past 2 yrs. 1) The American public would have at least five days to review any bill that came before Congress before it was passed into law. 2) There would be no more "closed door" meetings.

Well, this afternoon, the King Liberal will sign into law the BIGGEST spending bill in the history of this great country (yes, he continues to make history). This bill was barely written and voted on, on Friday. That makes 4 days since it passed through both houses. Let's not even talk about the fact that our representatives didn't even get the promised 48 hours to review the bill before voting took place. Strike promise #1. It was hashed out between the two houses with NO REPUBLICANS present, or even invited, behind closed doors. Strike promise #2.

I will give it to them, we will get a little bit in tax cuts. It averages about $13 per person per paycheck.

What happened to the transparency that the King Liberal promised? What happened to the big tax cuts that the man promised us?

This is exactly what happens. The Democrats will say anything they think the citizens want to hear to get elected and then go about their business without any concern about what the people want.

I just looked up the vote in the House and Senate on H.R. 1, The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. It passed the House 246-183 with one Present and 3 not voting. NOT ONE Republican voted for this bill. In fact, six Democrats voted against it. It passed the Senate 60-38 with one (Ted Kennedy) not voting. Of course, Minnesota only has one Senator seated right now because of the issues going on with the results of the election. But, Senators Collins and Snowe of Maine as well as Specter of Pennsylvania, all three so called Republicans, voted for it (no surprise there).

Again, Change we can believe in is to brow beat people into believing that we need to do something, even though doing nothing would be better for the country, until you get enough people from the other side to vote your way so that you can pass some ridiculous legislation that promises to do nothing but put this country further into debt, and guarantee the futures of our children will be spent trying to get us out, and have very little promise to actually stimulate the economy. It also includes the very things that Obama promised us would not happen and the NOT the things he promised would happen.

The last thing I would like to say is mainly to the three so called Republicans that voted for this spending bill, but is something that we all should take to heart. Winston Churchill once said, "we shall never surrender." If something is right in your heart, NEVER SURRENDER.

Any idea how much of a stimulus check we might receive? Or is the $13 per paycheck our stimulus spending money?
Last time I got a whopping $1, so I'm wondering how much I'll be able to stimulate the economy this time!

I don’t claim to keep up on this, but I knew one person who could help a girl understand what’s happening, so Mr. Edge, can you please tell me what’s going with our troops? Today’s news spouted information that over 10,000 soldiers are going to deploy… isn’t that against what King Liberal PROMISED would happen?

Taken from this website: http://www.barackobama.com/issues/iraq/
Immediately upon taking office, Obama will give his Secretary of Defense and military commanders a new mission in Iraq: successfully ending the war. The removal of our troops will be responsible and phased.

And this taken from his campaign promise, as cited by MSNBC (http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/28883741/):
In September 2007, Obama unveiled his plan for withdrawal: bring home two combat brigades each month, with all brigades removed in 16 months, leaving a small number of troops to protect diplomats and launch small-scale missions.
For a man who touted the removal of our troops as his number #1 priority in ending the war, why then is he sending more troops?

According to senior Pentagon and military officials, President Obama today [yesterday] authorized the deployment of 17,000 additional forces to Afghanistan. Defense Secretary Gates, however, either has or will sign the actual deployment order for 12,000 forces, 8,000 Marines and 4,000 soldiers for Afghanistan.
The deployment order for the additional 4,000, most support personnel, will be signed at a later date when those individual units and troops are identified. The 17,000 number was in one of the earlier orders that was sent up chain of command then back down again a couple weeks ago.
