After 23 years of listening and being personally mentored by Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Obama said he had NO idea what Jeremiah Wright taught - Liberals claim "Obama would have known if he had been given more time".
Did you know: it only took 7 weeks for Obama to learn to not bump his head upon entering "Helicopter 1" and only three months to differentiate a door from a window at the White House, Obama just needed time to figure all this out.
Barack Obama said he would create millions of jobs, instead his policies has destroyed 6 million jobs - his followers, worshipers and the Main Stream Media says he just needs more time.
Obama believes that borrowing and spending will reduce debt and ensure a debt free future - Barack Obama just needs more time for borrowing and spending and America will be debt free.
Let's see, what did candidate Obama promise during the 2008 campaign:
1. We'll pass Health Care Reform that will reduce cost and cover every American.
2. We'll be the most transparent Government in History.
3. We'll open debates aired on C-Span and given the American people to review any new legislation prior to passage.
4. We'll restore the economy and put people back to work.
5. We will restore the Nation to sound fiscal policy by going through the budget line by line and eliminating all wasteful spending and NO MORE EARMARKS!
6. We will finally achieve energy independence.
7. There will be NO more Red America and Blue America only the United States of America with bipartisan negotiations for all legislation.
Lies, Lies and more Lies...
How much more time does Obama need before totally destroying the United States of America?
Obama's latest mistake:
"Obama: I take responsibility but it's not my fault. I was on it from day one."
We think Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal and James Carville feels differently.
Maybe some people actually take this as seriously as they should!

But here's the scoop:
* It's definitely in late July
* It's not in New York or Martha's Vineyard
It's in the New York countryside, not far from the Clinton home in Chappaqua.
* It's got an A-list that would choke a horse, despite Chelsea's mom, Hillary, describing the wedding as a "private affair."
The Clinton's know everybody, can you even imagine what security will be like?
The million dollar question is, who will design Chelsea's wedding dress?
We have it on good authority and we are putting "our money" on Oscar de la Renta.
If family ties have anything to do with it, then all signs point to Oscar de la Renta.
Guess who has a closet full of "Oscar de la Renta dresses and pant suits"?
You got it!
Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.
So it won't be a shock to us if Chelsea walks down the aisle clad in the designer's handiwork!
* A final note: It was reported earlier Obama had offered the use of the White House as a wedding venue, but the offer was graciously turned down.
Does that mean Obama won't be invited?

A great event, marching with fellow Americans who have worked hard, followed all the rules, raised strong families and achieved the American Dream.
We are all patriotic Americans united under a common goal to save our nation.
We will march together as Democrats, Republicans and Independents and protest the freedoms being taken away from us and to stand up for what our COUNTRY was founded to be...
We are sick and tired of the "crap that is going on in Washington!" and what we deal with everyday right outside our doors. Unemployment, bailouts, taxes, corrupt local and federal government, illegal aliens, are just a drop in the bucket for what is wrong.
No more reaching across the aisle until the radicals on the other side are voted out in November.
Now, together, we fight to have our freedom restored.
Date: September 12, 2010
Time: Sunday at 2pm to 7pm
Location: The Washington Monument in DC
Street: Constitution Avenue at 15th Street NW
City: Washington, DC
It's time to stand up and make it impossible for them not to recognize this movement for what it really is:
"Love of God, Love of Country, and Love of Family!"
God Bless America...

You have two families: "Joe Legal" and "Jose Illegal". Both families have two parents, two children, and live in California.
Joe Legal: $25.00 per hour x 40 hours = $1,000 per week, or $32,000 per year. Now take 30% away for state and federal tax; Joe Legal now has $31,231.00.
Joe Illegal: $15.00 per hour x 40 hours = $600.00 per week, or $31,200.00 per year. Jose Illegal pays no taxes. Jose Illegal now has $31,200.00.
Joe Legal pays medical and dental insurance with limited coverage for his family at $600.00 per month, or $7,200.00 per year. Joe Legal now has $24, 031.00. Jose Illegal has full medical and dental coverage through the state and local clinics at a cost of $0.00 per year. Jose Illegal still has $31,200.00.
Joe Legal makes to much money and is not eligible for food stamps or welfare. Joe Legal pays $500.00 per month for food, or $6,000.00 per year. Joe Legal now has $18,031.00. Jose Illegal has no documented income and is eligible for food stamps and welfare. Jose Illegal still has $31,200.00.
Joe Legal pays rent of $1,200.00 per month. or $14,400.00 per year. Joe Legal now has $9,631.00. Jose Illegal receives a $500.00 per month federal rent subsidy. Jose Illegal pays out that $500.00 per month, or $6,000.00 per year. Jose Illegal still has $31,200.00.
Joe Legal pays $200.00 per month, or $2,400.00 for life insurance. Joe Legal now has $7,231.00. Jose Illegal says, "We don't need no stinking life insurance!" and still has $31,200.00.
Joe Legal has to make his $7,231.00 stretch to pay utilities, gasoline, and etc. Jose Illegal has to make his $31,200.00 stretch to pay utilities, gasoline, and what he sends out of the country every month.
Joe Legal now works overtime on Saturdays or gets a part time job after work. Jose Illegal has nights and weekends off to enjoy with his family.
Joe Legals and Jose Illegals children both attend the same school. Joe Legal pays for his children's lunches while Jose Illegals children get a government sponsored lunch.
Jose Illegals children have an after school WSL program. Joe Legals children go home.
Joe Legal and Jose Illegal both enjoy the same police and fire services, but Joe paid for them and Jose did not pay.
Do you get it, now?
Now, suddenly, if you don't have your papers...you're going to be harassed, the president said. "That's not the right way to go." Obama needs to do his homework, because since 1940, it has been a federal crime for aliens to fail to keep such registration documents with them.
The Arizona law simply adds a state penalty to what was already a federal crime.
Moreover, as anyone who has traveled abroad knows, other nations have similar documentation.
It is a fact that Arizona is the ground zero of illegal immigration. Phoenix is the hub of human smuggling and the kidnapping capital of America. It's no surprise that Arizona's police associations favored the bill, along with 71 percent of Arizonans.
And, we totally agree THAT... Jose Illegal should come in the front door, just like Joe Legal did!
So, all in all, a bunch of know nothings who haven't read the bill are making up their own version of it to suit their politics, then Calderon comes in as BO's sock puppet to blast Arizona, then admits his country does worse. We just love the smell of hypocrisy from this regime early in the morning. The stench reaches across the country. And all this is in their own words!!!
And guess what?
Then Calderon goes on Wolfe Blitzer and says what they do in Mexico:
* jail people who cross their borders illegally
But Calderon chastised Arizona for trying to protect their border.
Maybe next time he comes for a visit, we can load his plane and sent some of his illegals back with him and serve him bologna instead of tax payers footing the bill for $1,000,000 meal and party.
So nice going Hussein and thanks for sticking up for our country!

In regards to Mr. Nash's column in the May 14th Tribune. I have a few responses.
First of all, I can spell YMCA and to insinuate I can't is a slam to the NAFC School System, which I did graduate in 1977 midterm.
I think that crosses the line just a little bit, Mr. Nash.
As far as the reason I voted "NO" on the YMCA, it was due to how it was finance and also them using citizen's property taxes to backup the loan, which you failed to mention.
I voted "NO" on the Sewer Board updates from a CPA because by ordinance and up until January 2, 2008 we were receiving monthly sewer financial reports from Controller Garry and also she is being paid extra to stay on top of Sewer finances.
I felt it was expanding government and double dipping in taxpayer's money. It's also what I consider having another person to add to another "layer of fat" we already have in local government.
I voted "NO" on the Sewer Rate Increase because we already have some of the highest sewer bills in the entire State of Indiana.
The Sewer Fund has been raided for years, even our Controller was quoted in the Tribune warning against raiding the sewer fund.
Mr. Nash, tell me why should honest, hard working citizens of New Albany be penalized for:
(1 ) Lack of Leadership
(2) Bad management
(3) Not addressing the problems immediately
So "NO" to that!
As far as a solution to our city's sewer problems:
(1) Revamp Sewer Board
(2) Micro Manage the utility
(3) Use EDIT to relieve the burden on rate payers (it's their money) and use CDBG and TIF Funds.
(4) Stop raiding the Utility
(5) Collect Delinquent Sewer Liens
Also Mr. Nash, I want the $450,000 Georgetown owes the citizens of the City of New Albany.
That was my plan.
I voted "NO" on the $2.00 a month Garbage Fee increase because I have been told from other companies that they could do it cheaper. Also, if a private company can make a profit, why can't we?
Why can we hire local citizens and just break even?
Giving rate payers a break and putting local citizens to work. That sounds logical to me!
As far as take home cars. I am not satisfied with current policy. Mileage is a problem and maintenance is a large expenditure when we get new cars they should not leave the city.
Funding for the Police and Fire Departments can be accomplished thru renegotiation of contracts just like FORD, GE, and other companies are doing throughout America.
The current employees now do not change. But, the new ones come in under a different system.
We are a city of 35 to 37 thousand citizens and cannot sustain 60 to 100 thousand dollar a year in jobs.
By taking these proactive measures in all departments our children and families will have a clean, safe and affordable New Albany.
In closing Mr. Nash, there's been far more people like you and your ideas on the City Council over the years than people like me and I don't believe in raising fees, tax and spend methods, when there are other options.
Maybe that's why our city is in the mess we are in!!!
As my mother use to say; "shut the door the heat is on, turn off the lights when you don't need them, and Stevie, what part of "NO" don't you understand!"
Thank You for your opinion and this is mine.
Councilman Steve Price

Did anyone else catch this in last Sunday's Tribune dated April 9, 2010?
Check this out:
Notice is hereby given the taxpayers of City of New Albany, Floyd County, that the proper and legal officers will consider the following additional appropriation in excess of the budget for the current year at their regular meeting place 7:15 p.m. on the 20th day of May, 2010.
E.D.I.T. FUND: Ramps
Amount Requested: $300,000
Does England think this is monopoly money?
So far England has spent our EDIT Funds on a CPA, Council Attorney salary and now Ramps.
What do you bet, it's a Resolution and not an Ordinance?
You would think this could wait until the 2010 Budget was approved before he continues to spend more money.
Hey Mr. Mayor, we had a brainstorm: Let Redevelopment pay for these ramps instead of using EDIT money!

Such as us Tea Partiers!
Wrong again Obama. We carry signs and are against your policies. We do not try to blow up SUV's and attempt to kill innocent men, women and children in New York!
This week Attorney General Eric Holder tells Jake Tapper that alleged Times Square bombing screw up Fasial Shahzad was facilitated, financed and working under the direction of the Pakistani Taliban.
While that clears some things up, remember that there is still a middle-aged Tea Party supporter stalking the Nutmeg State, who is angry about the housing crisis and the health care bill, with his citizenship still in good standing, and probably linking up with our home-grown militias for more one-off attacks...
Muslim terrorists have devastate the United States society in the daylight which definitely is not the "root cause" of U.S. troubles! The "real root cause" of the existing U.S. trouble is: the U.S. Systems are completely failed from the bottom up. And to the levels that the U.S. laws and justice at the present time are crippled or unable to cope with massive Jihad-killers who have been transformed into U.S. citizens to sit next to your backyard to do harm to this U,S society as freely as the nation has allowed them to come in and achieve their bad deeds.
What is most scary is how the real terrorists have used this fool to test out the defenses and tracking systems of NYC. Sorta like "testing the water". Now the competent terrorist (domestic or foreign) now have a very good idea how the security system works in NYC.
They now have a better understanding of how the camera's are laid out, and more importantly, how long it will take authorities to respond. This may seem like an incompetent fool but maybe his handlers knew what they were doing!
One does wonder how people this stupid are given special employment visas, doesn't it?

Yes, immigration means legally becoming a citizen. The millions who enter illegally are aliens. There is no such thing as an "illegal immigrant!"
We the people of the United States of America have the right to have our borders and our laws respected and enforced.
Citizens of other countries illegally in our country has no right to demand anything from our government. They most certainly have the right to petition the government of their home countries for change if they are unhappy with their home country.
If they want to be Americans, we have a path to citizenship, more generous than any other nation, and it starts in their home country.
We need to insist on the equal protection, application and enforcement of the law or devolve into anarchy. Our Republic only functions if everyone follows the same rules. We should not change the laws to accommodate those breaking them.
If America announces to the world "We can't stop you, so come on in" with another amnesty, the deluge will be overwhelming. If 3,000 a day didn't get your attention, then wait until it's 10,000 a day.
We cannot sustain this influx and survive as a nation.
We should not let false claims of racism or bigotry be used to intimidate us into silent assent.
America is not Congress' to give away. America belongs to We the People!
It's O.K. for us to enforce our laws, no really, it is...

You be the judge:
The lawyer for a former northwestern Indiana mayor says a federal court order that he and two former employees pay $108 million in civil damages is "uncollectable."
A federal judge issued the order Thursday in a racketeering lawsuit filed by the state, claiming that former East Chicago Mayor Robert Pastrick and others spent $24 million in public money on private driveways, patios and walkways to court voters in 1999.
Is former mayor Pastrick a friend of our Mayor England?
Has any of our money been used in New Albany for personal or political favors?
Did you donate to the England campaign to get a personal favor?
Attorney General Greg Zoeller said his office will "dedicate all necessary efforts" collecting the judgement.
