This rather brilliant example cuts thru all the political doublespeak we get. It puts it into a much better perspective. Lesson # 1: * U.S. Tax revenue: $2,170,000,000,000 * Fed budget: $3,820,000,000,000 * New debt: $ 1,650,000,000,000 * National debt: $14,271,000,000,000 * Recent budget cuts: $ 38,500,000,000 Let's now remove 8 zeros and pretend it's a household budget: * Annual family income: $21,700 * Money the family spent: $38,200 * New debt on the credit card: $16,500 * Outstanding balance on the credit card: $142,710 * Total budget cuts so far: $3.85 Got It ????? OK now Lesson # 2: Here's another way to look at the Debt Ceiling: Let's say, You come home from work and find there has been a sewer backup in your neighborhood....and your home has sewage all the way up to your ceilings. What do you think you should do ...... Raise the ceilings, or pump out the house? Your choice is coming Nov. 2012.

Brooksley Media Review For My Song, "Welcome Home"!!!!!!!

Welcome Home by Rene Saucier
Welcome Home is song one can easily put in a flashback sequence in a Capra-esque film. It's a country rock style, easy going tune, that makes this critic imagine a sunny drive to the Hamptons with the top down wearing cool 70's shades.
The acoustic guitar and mandolin play around each other with great simplicity and ease. The mix is near perfect; every instrument is heard and clearly and everything is in the right place.
There is soul here. It's instant and calming. The length is just long enough to want more, so repeated listening is furthered.
The song instantly places one into a melancholic sentiment, but without the cheesy groan that so many others do; this is why we chose this song as one of our favorites. It's done so well it makes song production look easy, when we all know how hard it can be.
What's missing; yet without real need, are lyrics. I would like to hear someone try and put lyrics on this, just for my own interests; yet Welcome Home stands on its own, as an instrumental; in a way it captures the imagination enough that the listener subconsciously puts words and images to the song; like a Rorschach test.
Easily placeable in the Film/Television market, and kind to the ears; Welcome Home, by Rene Saucier, is one of the favorites around the office.
Why Humans Feel The Need For Religion!!!!!
Religion is important to humans because we have a need for God, that He put inside each one of us!!!! He is our creator and we belong and long for Him!!!!! Our lives are empty and useless without God!!!! We are lost sheep in the wilderness!!!!! All of us have turned away from God and have chosen to go our own way, which leads to destruction!!!!!! But God had a plan from the foundation of the Earth because He knew we would be helpless without Him!!!!! So He sent His only Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, to come and live among us and to turn us back to God!!!!! We have all broken the Laws of God, which He calls sin!!!! We all deserve to die and be separated from God forever because He is perfect and we are sinners!!!! So, Jesus, who was God in the flesh, came to us from Heaven for the sole purpose of living the perfect life and suffered and died on a Roman cross, so that now through Him, God can forgive our sins!!!!! "Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and you will be saved"!!!!! But that is not all!!!! He rose from the dead and now because He lives, we will live also!!!!! Jesus said, "I am the Resurrection and the life, any man that lives and believes in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live, and any man who lives and believes in me will never die"!!!!!! I pray you will invite Him into your heart this very moment , and He will come and abide with you, forgive your sins and give you everlasting life, so that you will be with God forever starting now and for eternity!!!!! God Bless You my Friend!!!!!!!
Sherry Hackett, wife of the late Buddy Hackett, is a dyed-in-the-wool Democrat. I would think that many other Democrats share her position...
This was written by Sherry Hackett, Buddy Hackett's widow
Today I read of your administrations' plan to re-define September 11 as a National Service Day. Sir, it's time we had a talk.
During your campaign, Americans watched as you made mockery of our tradition of standing and crossing your heart when the Pledge of Allegiance was spoken. You, out of four people on the stage, were the only one not honoring our tradition. YES, "We noticed."
During one of your many speeches, Americans heard you say that you intended to visit all 57 states. We all know that Islam, not America has 57 states. YES, "We noticed."
Every time you apologized to other countries for America 's position on an issue we have wondered why you don't share our pride in this great country.. When you have heard foreign leaders berate our country and our beliefs, you have not defended us. In fact, you insulted the British Crown beyond belief. YES, "We noticed."
When your pastor of 20 years, "God-damned America " and said that 9/11 was " America 's chickens coming home to roost" and you denied having heard recriminations of that nature, we wondered how that could be. You later disassociated yourself from that church and Pastor Wright because it was politically expedient to do so. YES, "We noticed."
When you announced that you would transform America , we wondered why. With all her faults, America is the greatest country on earth. Sir, KEEP THIS IN MIND, "if not for America and the people who built her, you wouldn't be sitting in the White House now." Prior to your election to the highest office in this Country, you were a senator from Illinois and from what we can glean from the records available, not a very remarkable one. YES, "We noticed."
All through your campaign and even now, you have surrounded yourself with individuals who are basically unqualified for the positions for which you appointed them. Worse than that, the majority of them are people who, like you, bear no special allegiance, respect, or affection for this country and her traditions. YES, "We noticed."
You are 14 months into your term and every morning millions of Americans wake up to a new horror heaped on us by you. You seek to saddle working Americans with a health care/insurance reform package that, along with cap and trade, will bankrupt this nation. YES, "We noticed."
We seek, by protesting, to let our representatives know that we are not in favor of these crippling expenditures and we are labeled "un-American","racist", "mob". We wonder how we are supposed to let you know how frustrated we are. You have attempted to make our protests seem isolated and insignificant. Until your appointment, Americans had the right to speak out. YES, "We noticed."
There were many of us who prayed that as a black president you could help unite this nation. In six months you have done more to destroy this nation than the attack on 9/11. You have failed us. YES, "We noticed."
September 11 is a day of remembrance for all Americans. You propose to make 9/11 a "National Service Day".. While we know that you don't share our reverence for 9/11, we pray that history will report your proposal as what it is, a disgrace. YES, "We noticed."
You have made a mockery of our Constitution and the office that you hold. You have embarrassed and slighted us in foreign visits and policy. YES, "We noticed."
We have noticed all these things. We will deal with you. When Americans come together again, it will be to remove you from office. Take notice.
THE NEW AMERICA!!!!!!
And it came to pass in the Age of Insanity that the people of the land
called America , having lost their morals, their initiative, and their
will to defend their liberties, chose as their Supreme Leader that
person known as "The One."
He emerged from the vapors with a message that had no meaning; but He
hypnotized the people telling them, "I am sent to save you." My lack
of experience, my questionable ethics, my monstrous ego, and my
association with evil doers are of no consequence. I shall save you
with hope and Change. Go, therefore, and proclaim throughout the
land that he who proceeded me is evil, that he has defiled the nation,
and that all he has built must be destroyed. And the people rejoiced,
for even though they knew not what "The One" would do, he had promised
that it was good; and they believed. And "The One" said " We live in
the greatest country in the world. Help me change everything about it!"
And the people said, "Hallelujah! Change is good!"
Then He said, "We are going to tax the rich fat-cats." And the
people said "Sock it to them!" "And redistribute their wealth." And
the people said, "Show us the money!" And the he said, "
redistribution of wealth is good for everybody."
One lone reporter asked, "Isn't that Marxist policy?" And she was
banished from the kingdom!
Then a citizen asked, "With no foreign relations experience and
having zero military experience or knowledge, how will you deal with
radical terrorists?" And "The One" said, "Simple. I shall sit with
them and talk with them and show them how nice we really are; and they
will forget that they ever wanted to kill us all!" And the people
said, "Hallelujah!! We are safe at last, and we can beat our weapons
into free cars for the people!"
And He said.. "I shall mandate employer-funded health care
for every worker and raise the minimum wage. And I shall give every
person unlimited healthcare and medicine and transportation to the
clinics." And the people said, "Give me some of that!"
Then he said, "I shall penalize employers who ship jobs overseas."
And the people said, "Where's my rebate check?"
Then He said, "Illegal immigrants feel scorned and slighted. Let's
grant them amnesty, Social Security, free education, free lunches,
free medical care, bi-lingual signs and guaranteed housing..." And
the people said, "Hallelujah!" and they made him king!
The bank banking industry was destroyed. Manufacturing slowed to a
crawl. And more of the people were without a means of support.
Then "The One" said, "I am the "the One"- The Messiah - and I'm here
to save you! We shall just print more money so everyone will have
enough!" But our foreign trading partners said unto Him. "Wait a
minute. Your dollar is not worth a pile of camel dung! You will have
to pay more... And "The One" said, "Wait a minute. That is
unfair!!" And the world said, "Neither are these other idiotic
programs you have embraced. Lo, you have become a Socialist state and
a second-rate power. Now you shall play by our rules!"
And the people cried out, "Alas, alas!! What have we done?" But yea
verily, it was too late. The people set upon The One and spat upon
him and stoned him, and his name was dung. And the once mighty nation
was no more; and the once proud people were without sustenance or
shelter or hope. And the Change "The One" had given them was as like
unto a poison that had destroyed then and like a whirlwind that
consumed all that they had built.
And the people beat their chests in despair and cried out in anguish,
"give us back our nation and our pride and our hope!!" But it was too
late, and their homeland was no more.
You may think this a fairy tale, but it's not.
It's happening RIGHT NOW
