111th Congress Added More Debt Than First 100 Congresses Combined: $10,429 Per Person in U.S.

It was historic.
Barack Obama tripled the national deficit in one year. When Speaker Pelosi took over Congress the national deficit was $162 billion. When she exits in 2011 as Speaker it will be at $1.29 Trillion dollars.
Obama topped a trillion dollars his second year, too.

(The Captain’s Comments)

Spending was up 84% under Obama.

That’s not all…
Barack Obama is the worst jobs president since the Great Depression and possibly the worst jobs president in US history.

But, he gave a nice speech last week and did not blame Republicans for the mass murder by an anti-Christian, anti-Constitution, left-wing, pro-Marx, antiflag, “quite liberal” lunatic killer who hated Bush.

Newt Gingrich told today that Obama deserved his 54% approval rating.
The Politico reported:

“I thought that his speech in Tucson was very effective. It’s what a president should do in a moment like that,” he said.

“I thought it was exactly the right tone for him,” Gingrich added. “The audience wasn’t always the right tone, but the president was and I think that that certainly helped him.”

Gingrich said he thinks Obama “deserves the approval you just showed in your poll,” referring to the Washington Post-ABC News poll released Tuesday morning that had the president’s approval rating at 54 percent and 78 percent of Americans approving of how he handled the shooting.

“I join the 71 percent of Republicans who approved of it,” he said.

On the same show this morning, Gingrich said, “Palin needs to slow down and think through what’s she’s saying.

Family groups are outraged that the State Department is removing the words ‘mother’ and ‘father’ from U.S. passport applications and replacing them with gender neutral terms.

House Republicans introduced a bill today to eliminate Obama’s 39 czars.
The Hill reported:

    A group of House Republicans introduced a bill on Wednesday to rein in the various “czars” in the Obama administration.

    Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.) and 28 other House Republicans introduced legislation to do away with the informal, paid advisers President Obama has employed over the past two years.

    The legislation, which was introduced in the last Congress but was not allowed to advance under Democratic control, would do away with the 39 czars Obama has employed during his administration.

    The bill defines a czar as “a head of any task force, council, policy office within the Executive Office of the President, or similar office established by or at the direction of the President” who is appointed to a position that would otherwise require Senate confirmation.

I want to ask each of you to consider doing the following when you are talking on the phone to any US customer service representative that is based in a foreign country (like India ).

I have done this twice and it works!  Any time you call an 800 number (for a credit card, banking, charter communications, health insurance, insurance, you name it) and you are transferred to a representative (like in India), please consider doing the following: After you connect and you realize that the customer service representative is not from the USA (you can always ask if you are not sure about the accent), please very politely (very politely – this is not about trashing other cultures) say, “I’d like to speak to a customer service representative in the United States of America .”

The rep might suggest talking to his/her manager, but, again, politely say, “Thank you, but I’d like to speak to a customer service representative in the USA .”  YOU WILL BE IMMEDIATELY CONNECTED to a rep in the USA .

It only takes less than one minute to have your call re- directed to the USA .  Tonight when I got redirected to a USA rep, I asked again to make sure – and yes, she was from Fort Lauderdale .

Imagine if tomorrow, every US citizen who has to make such a call and then requests a US rep, imagine how that would ultimately impact the number of US jobs that would need to be created ASAP.

Imagine what would happen if every US citizen insisted on talking to only US phone reps from this day on.  If I tell 10 people to consider this and you tell 10 people to consider doing this – see what I mean…it becomes an exercise in marketing 101.

Remember – the goal here is to restore jobs back here at home – not to be abrupt or rude to a foreign phone rep.

 

Thanks Denise

Dear Mr. President:

We write today in response to a speech given on November 10, 2010, at the University of  Indonesia in Jakarta, Indonesia, in which you stated “But I believe that the history of both Americanism Indonesia should give us hope. It is a story written into our national mottos. In the United States, our motto is E pluribus unum – out of many one … our nations show that hundreds of millions who hold different beliefs can be united in  freedom under one flag.”

E pluribus unum is not our national motto. In 1956, Congress passed and President Eisenhower approved the law establishing ‘In God We Trust’ as the official national motto of the United States. This motto is also referenced in our national anthem and is engraved on our coins and currency.

Additionally, during three separate events tlus fall, when quoting from the Declaration of Independence, you mentioned that we have inalienable rights, but consistently failed to mention the source of the rights. The Declaration of Independence definitively recognizes God, our Creator, as the source of our rights. Omitting the word ‘Creator’
once was a mistake; but twice establishes a pattern.  In your speech in Indonesia, you mentioned being unified under one flag. The Pledge of Allegiance to our flag says thatat we are “one nation under God.” As President of the Uruted States, you are our representative to the rest of the world. By misrepresenting things as foundational as the Declaration of Independence and our national motto, you are not only doing a disservice to the people you represent you are casting aside an integral part of American society.

Johm Adams said, “It is religion and morality alone, which can establish the principles upon which freedom can securely stand.” If Adams was right, by making these kinds of statement to the rest of the worlds, you are removing one of the cornerstones of our secure  freedom. If we pull the thread of religious conviction out of the marketplace of ideas, we unravel the tapestry of freedom that birthed America.

As members of the Congressional Prayer Caucus, a bi-partisan group of 68 Members of the United States House of Representatives, we are dedicated to preserving America’s religious heritage and protecting our religious liberty. We respectively request that you issue a correction to the speech you gave, as it does nit accurately reflect America and serves to undercut an important part of our history. We are willing to meet with you to discuss thus further if you would like. As President Ronald Reagan warned, “If we ever forget that we’re one nation under God, then we will be a nation gone under.”

Sincerely,

Dimocrats

“The burning question now is, how widespread is this bug? Informal polls show relatively small percentages of people are affected, but it’s still significant. ZDNet site Hardware 2.0 has been running an informal poll for about 12 hours thus far, with 10% of the respondents reporting trouble with SMS messages sent to the wrong person.”-Source

10%! That’s probably a lot more people than those who had troubles with the iPhone 4’s antennae-gate issue, and it’s been ongoing since March!
I suppose your tablets are safe since they aren’t used for sending text messages but for those of you using Android phones (that includes me) you need to be at aware of this issue. Especially if you start receiving confused replies/messages from people you haven’t even contacted recently.

On the other hand if you enjoy confusing the heck out of your friends and business associates you could always tell them you’re playing text-roulette a new anti-social networking game for Android phones.
