Common Sense on Cuba!

JeffFlake.com
Friend,

After more than five years in a Cuban prison, Alan Gross returned home yesterday to the United States and to his friends and family. I had the honor of traveling with Alan and his wife, Judy, as they made the trip home, and I couldn’t be happier for them.

When I visited Alan in prison last month, he expressed the hope that his terrible ordeal would lead to more constructive relations between the U.S. and Cuba. With the President’s announcement of several policy changes yesterday, Alan saw that hope fulfilled.

I don’t often agree with President Obama, but he was right to begin the process of normalizing relations with Cuba.

For over 50 years, the policy of isolating Cuba has failed to achieve any democratic reforms. It has, however, succeeded in giving the Castros a convenient excuse for the failures of socialism.

Engagement isn’t going to turn Cuba into a model democracy overnight, but as we’ve seen around the world, it will certainly be an improvement over the status quo. Government control over the island will be lessened by increased American contact and commerce, and these changes will provide a boost to those who will actually make change in Cuba – the Cubans themselves.

Fundamentally, this is an issue of freedom. U.S. trade and travel restrictions with Cuba aren’t restrictions on Cubans – they are restrictions on Americans. I’ve long said if a government is going to tell its citizens where they can and can’t travel, it ought to be a communist country, not the greatest country in the world.

As always, I look forward to your feedback. Thanks.

OK, Jeff! I agree in principle, but wonder how long it will take to start sending TAX PAYERS Money to Cuba?
Once again, our Appeaser-in Chief rolls over for a communist, and gets nothing in return! I am very happy we did get Mr Gross home, but wonder why we had to pay such a high price?

My only advice is NO FOREIGN AID TO CUBA!

I don’t usually write you, because often we are on the same page. However, I suggest you stop listening to Senator McCain. His mindset is based on how terribly he was tortured in Vietnam. As a Vietnam veteran myself, I must advise you that most of us suffer from a bit of unreality–and often I think McCain is among the worst in that manner. Please, become your own man quickly, or you will not get re-elected.

Sincerely
Al Battista

Are the Libs Starting to Get It? Help Black Americans Regain Exceptionalism-Vote for Ben Carson, MD

In short: our president is a small-minded man, with neither the temperament nor the intellect to handle his job. When you understand that, and only when you understand that, will the current erosion of liberty and prosperity make sense. It could not have gone otherwise with such an impostor in the Oval OfficeImage

AMAZING!!! The Cover of Liberal Newsweek Magazine:

Finally, Matt Patterson and Newsweek speak out about 0bama. This is timely and tough. As many of you know, Newsweek has a reputation for being extremely liberal. The fact that their editor saw fit to print the following article about 0bama and the one that appears in the latest Newsweek, makes this a truly amazing event, and a news story in and of itself. At last, the truth about our President and his agenda are starting to trickle through the protective wall built around him by the liberal media….  (HOW ABOUT A “DO-OVER FOR THE 2012 ELECTION?)

I Too Have Become Disillusioned
By Matt Patterson (Newsweek Columnist – Opinion Writer)
Years from now, historians may regard the 2008 election of Barack 0bama as an inscrutable and disturbing phenomenon, the result of a baffling breed of mass hysteria akin perhaps to the witch craze of the Middle Ages. How, they will wonder, did a man so devoid of professional accomplishment beguile so many into thinking he could manage the world’s largest economy, direct the world’s most powerful military, execute the world’s most consequential job?

Imagine a future historian examining 0bama’s pre-presidential life: ushered into and through the Ivy League, despite unremarkable grades and test scores along the way; a cushy non-job as a “community organizer;” a brief career as a state legislator devoid of legislative achievement (and in fact nearly devoid of his attention, less often did he vote “present”); and finally an unaccomplished single term in the United States Senate, the entirety of which was devoted to his presidential ambitions.

He left no academic legacy in academia, authored no signature legislation as a legislator. And then there is the matter of his troubling associations: the white-hating, America-loathing preacher who for decades served as 0bama’s “spiritual mentor;” a real-life, actual terrorist who served as 0bama’s colleague and political sponsor. It is easy to imagine a future historian looking at it all and asking: how on Earth was such a man elected president?

Not content to wait for history, the incomparable Norman Podhoretz addressed the question recently in the Wall Street Journal: To be sure, no white candidate who had close associations with an outspoken hater of America like Jeremiah Wright and an unrepentant terrorist like Bill Ayers, would have lasted a single day. But because Mr. 0bama was black, and therefore entitled in the eyes of liberals to have hung out with protesters against various American injustices, even if they were ‘a bit’ extreme, he was given a pass. Let that sink in: 0bama was given a pass – held to a lower standard because of the color of his skin.

Podhoretz continues: And in any case, what did such ancient history matter when he was also so articulate and elegant and (as he himself had said) “non-threatening,” all of which gave him a fighting chance to become the first black president and thereby to lay the curse of racism to rest?

Podhoretz puts his finger, I think, on the animating pulse of the 0bama phenomenon – affirmative action. Not in the legal sense, of course. But certainly in the motivating sentiment behind all affirmative action laws and regulations, which are designed primarily to make white people, and especially white liberals, feel good about themselves.

Unfortunately, minorities often suffer so that whites can pat themselves on the back. Liberals routinely admit minorities to schools for which they are not qualified, yet take no responsibility for the inevitable poor performance and high drop-out rates which follow. Liberals don’t care if these minority students fail; liberals aren’t around to witness the emotional devastation and deflated self-esteem resulting from the racist policy that is affirmative action. Yes, racist. Holding someone to a separate standard merely because of the color of his skin – that’s affirmative action in a nutshell, and if that isn’t racism, then nothing is.

And that is what America did to 0bama. True, 0bama himself was never troubled by his lack of achievements, but why would he be? As many have noted, 0bama was told he was good enough for Columbia despite undistinguished grades at Occidental; he was told he was good enough for the US Senate despite a mediocre record in Illinois; he was told he was good enough to be president despite no record at all in the Senate. All his life, every step of the way, 0bama was told he was good enough for the next step, in spite of ample evidence to the contrary.

What could this breed if not the sort of empty narcissism on display every time 0bama speaks? In 2008, many who agreed that he lacked executive qualifications nonetheless raved about 0bama’s oratory skills, intellect, and cool character. Those people – conservatives included – ought now to be deeply embarrassed.

The man thinks and speaks in the hoariest of clichés, and that’s when he has his Teleprompters in front of him; when the prompter is absent he can barely think or speak at all. Not one original idea has ever issued from his mouth – it’s all warmed-over Marxism of the kind that has failed over and over again for 100 years. (An example is his 2012 campaign speeches which are almost word for word his 2008 speeches)

And what about his character? 0bama is constantly blaming anything and everything else for his troubles. Bush did it; it was bad luck; I inherited this mess. Remember, he wanted the job, campaigned for the task. It is embarrassing to see a president so willing to advertise his own powerless-ness, so comfortable with his own incompetence. (The other day he actually came out and said no one could have done anything to get our economy and country back on track). But really, what were we to expect? The man has never been responsible for anything, so how do we expect him to act responsibly?

In short: our president is a small-minded man, with neither the temperament nor the intellect to handle his job. When you understand that, and only when you understand that, will the current erosion of liberty and prosperity make sense. It could not have gone otherwise with such an impostor in the Oval Office.

Let’s hear that one more time:

In short: our president is a small-minded man, with neither the temperament nor the intellect to handle his job. When you understand that, and only when you understand that, will the current erosion of liberty and prosperity make sense. It could not have gone otherwise with such an impostor in the Oval Office.

Gun Owners Beware! Obama and The UN are After Your Guns!

  • The only thing an American has to fear is fear itself!

     Repubs aren’t so great, but a lot better than dems!
                                                                   The only thing an American has to fear is fear itself!

Most gun owners do not know that Obama put a “full-court press” on at the UN to pass the “anti-gun” treaty!  Meanwhile, he and his Chameleon cohorts act like gun  supporters, WHICH THEY ARE NOT! Their hope is to get SUCH Strong control of  the Senate that they can pass that treaty after the next election in 2014!

Any gun owner that votes for a demonrat or,  even a fairly decent democrat,  is like a chicken voting for Col. Sanders!
The demonrats interpretation of an “Ordinary American” is so far from the truth, an idiot like Biden and gangstas like Barry and Holder, wouldn’t recognize a true American if Mr & Ms. America walked up to them with “The Flag,”  A “Bible” and a gun!

The United States Constitution Wins! Tyranny Temporarily on Hold!

Why Toomey-Manchin Failed
By DICK MORRIS
Published on DickMorris.com on April 18, 2013

Why would the Senate reject something as evident as the concept that we shouldn’t let maniacs, criminals, or those who have been named in orders of protection buy guns?  Why would they vote to maintain the artificial distinction between guns sold in stores and those sold in shows when they are equally likely to kill or maim?

Is President Obama correct when he blames lies from the National Rifle Association (NRA) for the rejection?  No.  The president has only himself to blame.

The fact is that while the overwhelming majority of the public approves of the narrow terms of the bill — to expand background checks to gun shows — the president has so poisoned the atmosphere in our nation’s politics that we don’t trust the government and we don’t trust the president.

The president was amazed that people did not read the plain language in the bill which bans using the background check information to amass a registry of gun owners.  But he’s wrong.  They read it.  They just didn’t believe it.

Click Here To Listen To My Interview With PA Senator Pat Toomey!

Click Here To Listen To My Interview With Donald Trump!

Like they didn’t believe that the requirement that only fiscal bills could pass with a bare majority would stop Obama from passing the health care bill with only a majority.

Like they didn’t believe that the ban on recess appointments when Congress was not in recess would stop Obama from naming National Labor Relations Board members without Senate confirmation while the Senate was not in recess.

Like they didn’t believe that the president wouldn’t allocate to himself the executive authority to pass the DREAM Act after it was rejected by Congress.

Like they didn’t believe that the feds would try to name ministers in churches, and so forth and so on.

 You can’t abuse the public’s trust as much as this president has and then cry when they don’t trust you.

It’s the Senate Stupid!

You may remember the slogan “It’s the economy, stupid” used by Bill Clinton during the 1992 presidential campaign to make the point that George H. W. Bush had not adequately addressed the economy.Clinton’s political strategist, James Carville, posted the phrase inside campaign headquarters as a way to keep the team focused and on message. The phrase later became the de facto slogan for the Clinton election campaign.

The slogan is relevant again in 2012 as Americans consider Barack Obama’s dismal economic record, but if you consider yourself a freedom-loving American, I have a different slogan for you.

“It’s the Senate, stupid.”Most Americans are focused on the presidential race right now, but winning the White House — as critical as it is — won’t be enough to save the country we love without a strong, conservative majority in the United States Senate. It's The Senate Stupid
  • Without a conservative Senate, we won’t repeal ObamaScare.
  • Without a conservative Senate, we won’t balance the budget.
  • Without a conservative Senate, we won’t secure our borders.
  • Without a conservative Senate, we won’t stop the bailouts.
  • And without a conservative Senate, we won’t enact the pro-growth policies needed to get America back to work.

Be Smart. Change the Senate.

If you’re reading this letter, chances are, you follow current events more closely than most and you probably understand the point I’m making — winning the Senate is key to restoring America’s greatness.

The simple fact of the matter is this: a Republican president without a conservative Senate is a waste of a Republican president.

A president can campaign on good policies, but he doesn’t write the bills. As long as liberals are in charge of writing legislation, it will be difficult for a Republican president to sign the right bills into law.

Does anyone think Harry Reid will ever send a bill to the President’s desk to repeal ObamaSCare? The answer is “no” and that’s why I am focused on sending strong conservatives to the Senate who will make that a reality.

Act Now. Support Senate Conservatives.

As we head down the home stretch of the most important election in our lifetime, my challenge to you is this: keep your focus on electing true conservatives to the U.S. Senate. These Senate races aren’t getting the same media attention as the presidential race, but they’re no less important.

This is why I founded the Senate Conservatives Fund, an independent, grassroots organization that helps elect principled leaders to the U.S. Senate, and it’s why I so strongly support its efforts today.

SCF has endorsed eight standout leaders in 2012:

  • Josh Mandel (Ohio)
  • Ted Cruz (Texas)
  • Jeff Flake (Arizona)
  • Richard Mourdock (Indiana)
  • Deb Fischer (Nebraska)
  • George Allen (Virginia)
  • Tom Smith (Pennsylvania)
  • Dan Bongino (Maryland)

Candidates

These candidates share a strong belief in the principles that make America great and they understand the critical role the U.S. Constitution plays in preserving our freedoms.

These leaders also have records that prove they not only talk the talk, but also walk the walk. And they’ve all shown the courage to stand up to their own party’s leaders when it was necessary to support and defend our principles and values.

So if you agree that winning a conservative majority in the U.S. Senate is vital to our nation’s future and if you’re willing to engage in these races even at a time when the media ignores them, then please do three things today.

  • Sign up for SCF email updates so you can stay informed.
  • Make a contribution to help SCF’s endorsed candidates. Without financial support, these candidates won’t be able to get their message out.
  • Forward this email and encourage your family and friends to support these outstanding Senate candidates.

Thank you for your commitment to principles of freedom. We live the greatest country in the world and if we work together in smart and effective ways, I’m confident we can preserve it for generations to come.

Respectfully,

Jim DeMint

A Challenge to You if You Care about the USA!

You need to know two things about me before I explain The Challenge:

First, I don’t respect many politicians.  In fact, the career politician is about the most wasted person in the country.  The only people more wasted is the business person depending on “political corporate cronyism” and the “welfare cheats.” That is “cheats” not the people that need it!  A real politician has been successful in the real world, then dedicates a few years of his life to helping do what is right for the country. Once he has done his duty for a few years, he returns home to pick up his business, and resume a normal life. The career politicians and the tribal chiefs and assorted royal consorts around them are  nothing but “BIG PIGS!”  If you want to hear what I really feel and think, keep reading.

Second, the term entitlement is a misnomer .  You either earn something, invest in something or get a gift.  Millions of us are in the 47% that do not pay taxes.  What I get I earned or invested in. The fact I pay no taxes has to do with the tax laws,  cost of living and income level. Those getting a gift think they are entitled, but they are not.  A gift does not last forever.   In fact, during my working years, many of my taxes went to some of the people receiving a gift, as well as to build the roads and bridges that according to Mr Obama, we didn’t build!

My retirement income comes from social security, which I’ve paid into since I was 15 years old. The second source of income is compensation from the Veterans Administration, due to wounds received in Vietnam.  I worked as long as I could, but when this battered body became too worn out to continue, I was thankful that I was part of the VA system, ever since coming home from Vietnam.  Once I needed it, the VA was there to help pick up the slack since I could no longer work.

What does one have to do to receive VA compensation? He must live like an animal for some portion of his most productive years. It might be  in the jungles of Vietnam or the frozen tundra of Korea; or possibly the sand dunes of Iraq or the rugged and cold climate of Afghanistan.  Even many of these people never qualify for VA compensation.  To receive that “EARNED BENEFIT” you probably also left part of your body or mind, most definitely some of your blood in the land where you lived like an animal while your peers were getting their start in the real world!

While trying to stay in a positive frame of mind, I sometimes slip back into rage (or at least extreme anger) over the career politicians that send our young people into these Godforsaken parts of the world.  We have so much technology and wonderful weapons to decimate any enemy, with minimal danger to our troops.  I am always amazed that we make our military resort to World War II tactics when we have space age technology.  Better yet, why don’t the political clowns in the entire world get together and end this nonsense we call war?

Now, when you read this you might think I am a pacifist, democrat!  Not by a long-shot, although I grew up thinking democrats were the good guys and had all the answers.  As an adult I woke up!  As I mentioned above, I am a 47% person for Romney!  Romney will not do anything to hurt those of us in our retirement years, and even those 10 years younger!  His plan to readjust these necessary programs for those younger than 55 years old will actually save them for future generations without bringing about the bankruptcy all of these programs face with the democrat spending problem.  Some addicts take in substances.  The democrat addicts throw money around like it is endless.  They think being a spendthrift has no negative consequences.  In fact, at the rate Obama spends money, those of us that are well past our prime will soon be either cut-off, or else paid in worthless dollars!  In either case, with Obama we all suffer.  With Romney we have a chance of escaping the fate of Greece!

That brings me to THE CHALLENGE: I am putting all of my faith in Romney.  To do so goes against my grain as mentioned above.  However, our country is on the precipice to complete economic destruction.  I had great hopes for Obama!  He let me down! He had a veto proof Senate and great majority in the House of Representatives for the first two years of his administration.  The major problem we faced (and indicated by most Americans in opinion polls) was the economy.  You can only fix an economy by creating more jobs.  He did not create more jobs, or fix the economy with all of his wasteful spending! I’m afraid 4 more years of this and none of us will be able to make it unless we have a treasure trove of gold and silver stored in our attic.  My family has neither, so we need Mr Romney to fix this economy.  His history shows he has the ability to do it!  We gambled on Mr Obama, who had no (and still doesn’t) business experience. He has shown us that he ran out of HOPE and CHANGE early.  He  claimed, “Yes, we can!”  We as a people, elected him, and now he says, “No, we can’t. I can’t change it from the inside.”   So, maybe you better go back to the outside, and see if you can do it as a former president, Mr Obama!  In fact, Ronald Reagan inherited as big a mess as you did.  He fixed it with leadership!  He was from the outside, as you were, but when he got to the inside he was a leader,  made friends with the democratic leadership, and restored our economy!  He never gloated and said, “Hey, I won!” to Tip O’Neal or any of the democrats. Reagan was, as Romney will be, friendly, conciliatory and effective!

So, The CHALLENGE is: AMERICA PUT ROMNEY IN OFFICE, AND GIVE HIM THE SAME GIFT WE GAVE PRESIDENT OBAMA–A VETO PROOF SENATE AND A MAJORITY IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES.  If, at the end of two years we do not see a major improvement in jobs and the economy we can dump his majority in the Senate and House, and replace him two years later!  Not only will I feel betrayed by Mr Romney, in that case, but I will do all in my power to support his opponent in the 2016 election!  I’m not even sure Romney will need a veto proof Senate, just the majority will probably do it.  Romney is smart enough to get a lot of help from the other side of the aisle!

Romney is a terrible campaigner but with a strong business sense!  Obama is a great campaigner but wouldn’t know how to run a 25 cent lemonade stand!  It’s looking a lot like the 2008 election. However, we were snookered in 2008, please do not let it happen again!

Who are these Candidates?!

Wednesday, August 8, 2012 6:42 PM
just the facts……

You may not like/approve the data, and that’s OK, but at least they are available. A refreshing concept.

  Personal Information:

  His full Name is: Willard Mitt Romney

He was Born: March 12, 1947 and is 65 years old.

His Father: George W. Romney, former Governor of the State of Michigan

He was raised in Bloomfield Hills , Michigan

He is Married to Ann Romney since 1969; they have five children.

 

Education:

B.A. from Brigham Young University ,

J.D. and M.B.A. from Harvard University

 

Religion:

Mormon – The Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter-Day Saints

 

Working Background:

After high school, he spent 30 months in France as a Mormon missionary. He survived a very serious auto accident while in France .

 

After going to both Harvard Business School and Harvard Law School simultaneously, he passed the Michigan bar exam, but never worked as an attorney.

 

In 1984, he co-founded Bain Capital a private equity investment firm, one of the largest such firms in the United States .

 

In 1994, he ran for Senator of Massachusetts and lost to Ted Kennedy.

 

He was President and CEO of the 2002 Winter Olympic Games..

 

In 2002, he was elected Governor of the State of Massachusetts where he eliminated a 1.5 billion deficit.

Some Interesting Facts about Romney:

 

Bain Capital, starting with one small office supply store in Massachusetts , turned it into Staples; now over 2,000 stores employing 90,000 people.

 

Bain Capital also worked to perform the same kinds of business miracles again and again, with companies like Domino’s, Sealy, Brookstone, Weather Channel, Burger King, Warner Music Group, Dollarama, Home Depot Supply, and many others.

 

He was an unpaid volunteer campaign worker for his dad’s gubernatorial campaign 1 year.

 

He was an unpaid intern in his dad’s governor’s office for eight years.

 

He was an unpaid bishop and state president of his church for ten years.

 

He was an unpaid President of the Salt Lake Olympic Committee for three years.

 

He took no salary and was the unpaid Governor of Massachusetts for four years.

 

He gave his entire inheritance from his father to charity..

 

Mitt Romney is one of the wealthiest self-made men in our country but has given more back to its citizens in terms of money, service and time than most men.

 

And in 2011 Mitt Romney gave over $4 million to charity, almost 19% of his income…. Just for comparison purposes, Obama gave 1% and Joe Biden gave $300 or .0013%.

 

Mitt Romney is Trustworthy:

He will show us his birth certificate

He will show us his high school and college transcripts.

He will show us his social security card.

He will show us his law degree.

He will show us his draft notice.

He will show us his medical records.

He will show us his income tax records.

He will show us he has nothing to hide.

Mitt Romney’s background, experience and trustworthiness show him to be a great leader and an excellent citizen for President of the United States .

 

You may think that Romney may not be the best representative the Republicans could have selected. At least I know what religion he is, and that he won’t desecrate the flag, bow down to foreign powers, or practice fiscal irresponsibility.

I know he has the ability to turn around this financial debacle that the current regime has gotten us into. We won’t like all the things necessary to recover from this debt, but someone with Romney’s background can do it.

But, on the minus side, He never was a “Community Organizer”, never took drugs or smoked pot, never got drunk, did not associate with communists or terrorists, nor did he attend a church whose pastor called for God to damn the US.

 

You should know the difference between the men running for America ‘s top office.

Barack Hussein Obama:

Was born in either Hawaii or Kenya. While growing up admitted that he only liked playing basketball and taking drugs!

For much of his youth he was educated in Indonesia. The Madrassas  (Muslim schools) spend most of the time learning The Koran, not necessarily “readin, writin, rithmatic.”

We do not know what kind of marks he received in school or Occidental College, because those records are sealed.
However, he admits to being a very bad student, so we can wonder how he got into Columbia University-somehow he did. Was it because he was a foreign student, thus a plus for Columbia to give him a “free ride?” Or maybe it was his smooth tongue! I don’t recall what he said about his Columbia grades, but I assume they were good enough to get him into Harvard Law School.  Again, we cannot know what kind of student he was because all of his records are sealed!  He did have a great gift of gab, however, and somehow talked his way into running the Harvard Law School paper.

He spent much of his early working career as a “Community Organizer.”  It appears that kind of work is to organize protests and generally be a “rabble-rouser.”  There is no history of him ever running any type of organization or being in business.  He spent an uneventful 7 years in the Illinois Senate, where most of his votes were “to abstain” from voting.

He somehow got hold of the sealed divorce records of his opponent when running for the US Senate. The media and his anchor Dave Axelrod, made a big splash of the information in the divorce record.  Much of it blow way out of proportion and out of context.  BHO walked into the US Senate!

He spent 2 years in the US Senate, much of that time on the road running for President!  He did show up for a few votes, including a vote to insure “infanticide” would continue.

His first 2 years as President, he had full control of the Senate and The House of Representatives. Instead of fixing the bad economy he inherited, he spent that gift jamming a Health Care bill down the throats of the American people!  Even though he had a veto proof Senate, he found he had to buy off many of the Senators and Congresspeople from his own party to get his “Albatross” of a 2,700 page Health Bill that will cost many time the $1,000,000,000,000 he claims it will cost.

He is now running for re-election. His slogan is the worn out slogan of the discarded and ineffective Communist Movement, “FORWARD.”  He may not be a communist, but he certainly put together a socialized health care system in his 2,700 page bill. His take over of General Motors and many other aspects of  the American business scene sure looks like a socialist!

It appears he not only lacks experience in running a government, but he also appears to be ignorant of history.  Socialism is the reason the USSR fell apart.  Socialism is the cause for the economic troubles in Greece, Italy, Spain, as well as weakening most of the rest of Europe. His attempts to install socialism in the USA will likewise cause the US economy to fail.

This blog could go on for hours more, but let me just remind you of one more think: He claims to be focused on getting jobs for the American people.  However, he spends a few $trillion dollars supposedly to start Americans working again. However, many of those jobs went to China and Finland.  Instead of embracing the Keystone Pipeline that would have created 10’s of 1,000’s of jobs, he cancelled it.  Instead of continuing our drilling for oil in The Gulf of Mexico, he sent the rigs down to Brazil with 4 billion taxpayer dollars to drill there, saying, “The USA will be your best customer!”  He also wasted money on companies that had no viable means of succeeding. Solyndra is on of many examples-they and may of the other Solar companies all went bankrupt.

Again, he failed to learn from history.  President Roosevelt did the same thing after he was elected to end the Depression. His Secretary of the Treasury Henry Morgenthau Jr said,  after five years in office,  that , “with all the money we spent, we have nothing to show for it.”  It was not government spending that ended the Depression, it was World War II.  Does that mean we will have to have a war to get out of our economic woes?  I hope not! A better way would be to get Mr Obama out of the way and let Mitt Romney have two (2) years with a veto proof Senate and control of The House of Representatives.  If he can’t fix the problems facing us with such a similar gift as Obama had, then  all we have left is PRAYER!
