Fire up the teleprompters. It's show time tonight!

When the Obama administration crashes and burns, with approval ratings that fall through the floor, political scientists can trace it's demise to it's first hundred days.

How is he doing?

Ask the 2 million more Americans who have lost their jobs since his coronation.

Ask the 160,000 Americans living on constant alert in Iraq and the 30,000 more on their way to Afghanistan.

His first 100 days have been spent paying patronage to his liberal left supporters and covering his ineffectiveness by blaming the past administration.

For a guy that talked about hope, change and the future, he can't take his eyes off the rear view mirror.

Let's see. How to sum up Obama's first hundred days?

He's almost nationalized the Auto Companies, he's gotten a controlling in the Nations Largest Banks, he's TRASHED this country, all over the world, he seeks to take away the SECRET BALLOT, for his Union Buddies, and he intends to SILENCE DISSENT, with the imposition of the Fairness Doctrine.

Unfortunately, many of Obama's voters cannot read Dick and Jane let alone comprehend what the teleprompter is saying today versus what it said yesterday.

As they say, the ACORN does not fall far from the tree!

A week or so ago, millions went to their first protest march all over the country. The Tea Parties were ignored by the press and denied by the Obama Administration.

Guns and ammunition sales are up - with many fearing anarchy or a takeover of the USA as Obama flies the world telling all how bad the USA is.

Obama just took the wheels off the CIA bus - he might as well close the operation and declare the USA open to terrorism. Obama in his extreme wisdom says there are no fanatic Muslin Terrorists so we can now call them malcontents or some other PC name!

When the rubber meets the road, one thing is certain...the more money we put into circulation, the value of the money goes down. It, not only, puts our younger generation at risk; it devalues the savings of many Americans who played by the rules and didn't take unnecessary risks.

Do we have confidence in the President's economic Einsteins? Why should we? they were part of the reason we are in this mess.

The press can spin what Obama eats, watches, drinks and what clothes he wears. But to many of us the bottom line are results, the end results. To many of us are from Missouri the "show us" before you start blowing your horn.

And we don't care if you wear an Elmer Fudd cap, Mr. Greenjeans jeans, or are fluent in 10 different languages.

Show us!

But as Obama's daily line moves from "I inherited this mess" to "There are faint signs of light," the clock starts ticking. If there is no recovery for the next six months - and we don't think there will be.

Obama will inevitably become part of the problem, not part of the solution!

And then will come his heavy lifting. He has yet to raise taxes, regiment healthcare or provide amnesty for illegal immigrants. He hasn't closed down the car companies he now runs and he has not yet forced a 50 percent hike in utility bills with his cap-and-trade legislation.

These are all the goodies he has in store for us all.

But hey...It gets very monotonous listening to Obama speak with his constant ers and ahs and reading from the teleprompter his continuous campaign rhetoric. Why not just publish his speech on the Internet so we can read it later when we have some spare time.

Also, have you noticed?

Obama is looking more and more like Hugo Chevez every day.

Viva la revolucion bolivarista!

Senator Evan Bayh,

We are writing to ask you to please publicly CONDEMN the recently-released "assessment" from the Department of Homeland Security warning law enforcement officials about a rise in "rightwing extremist activity." Labeling citizens who attended the Indianapolis Tea Party, and returning veterans as "rightwing extremists" and associating them with white supremacists and violent anti-government groups!

Who is funding this kind of Nonsense?

Did YOU vote for this?

Why would our government spend our money attacking our veterans instead of spending our money PROTECTING us?

This report is an insult to military veterans and American citizens, and as a member of the U.S. Senate, we would like to see you and your colleagues TAKE ACTION IMMEDIATELY to condemn this report, verbal comments and to demand it's retraction by the Department of Homeland Security and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi!

About the Indiana Tea Party:

Yes, taxpayers are "mad as hell" and we are putting our elected officials on notice.

Elites are very comfortable with the sort of top-down, politically correct, taxpayer-funded-so-called community groups like ACORN on the left-after all, and talking points come from their friends [MSNBC, CNN, ABC, NBC, and others] and their allies in Washington to discredit us taxpayers.

Genuine, spontaneous grassroots, on the other hand, is scary to Obama, and especially the media elites who have almost completely ignored the tea party movement, attempting to silence potentially millions of Americans taking to the street.

It's a clear dereliction of their responsibility to report the news and to label taxpayers as rightwing extremist!

Words and actions have consequences, and irresponsible statements, reports and actions fuel fires that are counterproductive to democracy in America.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi tries to dismiss the genuine populist outrage by calling it fake, alleging that the grassroots is really made of AstroTurf, a front for corporate interests.

The Tea Parties are structured very differently.

A general anti-tax, anti-debt, and anti-bailout rebellion doesn't advance any special interests. There is NO single leader. This is a broad effort with hundreds and thousands of "mad as hell taxpayers."

The populist backlash against our government looting of wealth via taxes, regulations, debt, and bailouts is real. The backlash over elites telling ordinary Americans how to live their lives through a media drumbeat, and forcing them to comply through laws and regulations is also real.

Tax dollars continue to enrich Washington bureaucrats and Wall Street bankers at the expense of ordinary Americans, with even higher taxes on the horizon. We are facing trillions in debt for out-of-control special interests spending at the expense of all the workers [and their children and grandchildren] in Indiana and other states who will have to pay it all back with interest!

Please, do the RIGHT thing -- publicly CONDEMN the Department of Homeland Security document, and tell House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, we are NOT "Rightwing Extremist, we are Hoosiers, and we are mad as HELL!"

General Motors plan to lay off about 1,600 white-collar works over the next few days.

GM North American President Clarke writes in his email."Even for those employees staying, it will be difficult to see our friends and co-workers leaving our company."

GM spokesman Tom Wilkinson stated: employees will get severance pay of two weeks for every year of service, up to six month's.

No news yet, as to how many of those laid off are vice presidents, assistant vice presidents, executive presidents, deputy vice presidents, and etc.

Our source in Washington states: "There will be further reductions in manpower, people that are going to affect communities, affect plants and people on the hourly and salary side of the business."

On another note.

GM plans to pay out record bonuses to it's executive staff!

1. What funds, fees, or taxes would be used to pay off the new paving bond?

2. Would the City Attorney receive a commission on the new bond?

3. What percent would that commission be?

4. Would the new bond be used to pay off current bonds?

5. What streets or projects would the new bond be used for?

6. Would the new paving bond issued be under the 2% debt limit on the city?

7. Are new bonds a way to place the debt payments on the backs of our children and grandchildren?

We should have the backbone to operate the city like a business and not put this debt burden on our children and grandchildren.

Freedom Of Speech believes taxpayers have a right to the answers of these questions!

At the request of the White House, Georgetown University covered up all the symbols in Gaston Hall, before Obama spoke, including IHS, the millennia-old monogram for the name Jesus Christ.

The Latin trigraph IHS -- Iesus Hominum Salvator -- Jesus, savior of men is such a beautiful and simple way to remember Our Lord.

Barack, have you not read the Sacred Scriptures?

Jesus told us if we acknowledge him then he will acknowledge us before the Father yet if we deny Him then He will deny us before the Father.

Why did you deny Christ his place?


Why do you wish "IHS to be covered, blocked off, and painted over like some obscene graffiti on the side of a building?

Is the Holy Name of Jesus obscene to you?

We certainly hope not!

Even the demons will bend the knee at the Name of Jesus.

St. Paul wrote in his letter to Obama: I have no idea what Jeremiah Wright taught you sir, but this lack of devotion to the Holy Name of Jesus is highly disturbing!

To Georgetown University we have a simple message:

Grow a pair.

You should be ashamed to give in to earthly rulers and acquiesce to such shameful symbolism.

You are supposed to be a Catholic Institution of higher learning and this means you may not give a platform for those espousing error or hersey to speak!

You Georgetown Jesuits need a long retreat to a monastery to rediscover what the Society of Jesus is truly about. Some actual practice of the Spiritual Exercises your founder, St. Ignatius Loyola, recommended would be useful to save your souls.

Why is the Society of Jesus refusing to defend the very Name of the Son of God on which your order was founded?

This is totally disgusting!

2009 - Economic crisis - 8.5% unemployment. Obama borrows $3 trillion from the Chinese, bails out banks and auto companies, drives DOW down 2000 points, a $409.6 billion omnibus budget bill, a $3.6 trillion budget, spends almost no time in Washington, goes on late night comedy show, takes 500 people for a meaningless show in Europe.

Then, President Obama told an audience in Strasbourg that the US had been "arrogant" and "dismissive" towards it's allies.

For a President to continue to blame the past, and to denigrate America whenever he can, is a complete and utter disgrace.

We have troops overseas being wounded and making scarifies while the leftist do-nothing "president" makes like a celebrity.

He is sending more troops who again are risking their lives, while he mouth's this stuff just to "appear" popular to Europe.

Who cares what Europe or any country thinks? Do they ask our permission before doing anything?

Did Russia check in before murdering and bombing in Georgia?

Did China check in before brutalizing people in Tibet.

Do the dictators of South America ask us our opinion of how they treat their peasants?

Do the Arabs check in before they behead and flog people.

How about Europe having to be bailed out of major wars in the past hundred years by the blood of young American soldiers.

How many Europeans died?

Obama is an embarrassment to the entire nation.

It will be interesting though, when Obama starts to pull out troops to save money.

Who will the Europeans call in when they need help?

"Arrogant Americans again?"

Where does Obama get the nerve to say that Americans are arrogant, the people of the U.S. are great people they are hard workers and they give to every nation and all people who need help, they give money, and food and clothes.

They have shed their blood on all lands of this world, so others can have the freedom like the U.S. has.

"Obama is a man of many words, but NOT a man of his word."

To all those who voted for him, congratulations!

Here's your so called ...Change!

A French doctor says, Medicine in my country is so advanced that we can take a kidney out of a man, put it in another, and have him looking for work in six weeks,

A German Dr. says that is nothing we can take a lung out of one person, put it in another, and having him looking for work in 4 weeks.

The Russian Dr. says in my country medicine is so advanced that we can take half a heart out of one person, and have them both looking for work in 2 weeks.

An American Dr. not to be outdone, says you guys are way behind. We recently took a man with NO brains out of Illinois, put him in the White House, and now half the country is looking for work!
