Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi Visit Montana

Nancy Pelosi called Harry Reid into her office one day and said, “Harry, I have a plan to win back Middle America in 2014!”

“Great Nancy, but how?” asked Harry….

“We’ll get some cheesy clothes and shoes, like most Middle Class Americans wear, then stop at the pound and pick up a Labrador Retriever. Then, we’ll go to a nice old country bar in Montana and show them how much admiration and respect we have for the hard working people living there.”

So they did, and found just the place they were looking for in Bozeman, Montana.nancy pelosi and harry reid

With the dog in tow, they walked inside and stepped up to the bar.

The Bartender took a step back and said, “Hey! Aren’t you Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi?”

“Yes we are!” said Nancy, “And what a lovely town you have here. We were passing through and Harry suggested we stop and take in some local color.”

They ordered a round of bourbon for the whole bar, and started chatting up a storm with anyone who would listen.

A few minutes later, a grizzled old rancher came in, walked up to the Labrador, lifted up its tail, looked underneath, shrugged his shoulders and walked out.
A few moments later, in came another old rancher. He walked up to the dog, lifted up its tail, looked underneath, scratched his head and left the bar.

For the next hour, another dozen ranchers came in, lifted the dog’s tail, and left shaking their heads.lab

Finally, Nancy asked, “Why did all those old ranchers come in and look under the dog’s tail? Is it some sort of custom?”

Lord no,” said the bartender.

“Someone’s out there running around town, claiming there’s a Labrador Retriever in here with Two Assholes!”

Health Care Reform

computer monitor waving a enevlope

What I find the most disturbing is the fact this email in different versions has been forwarded via viral email around the internet since 2009. These notorious (one example is shown below) viral email analysis of the House health care bill contains 48 claims. Twenty-six of them are false and the rest mostly misleading. Only four are true. Most of the e-mail’s claims are wrong, and you can read this extended analysis to find out why.
Below is a copy of the viral email I received.
Begin forwarded message:
This is very disturbing and once again…if our legislators had to live by the same rules as the rest of us, things would be quite different.  How can we change this?
I recall you saying you’d read the Health Care Reform bill, or most of it. Does the information below look accurate?
I can’t believe the one about the government having access to our bank accounts…………This was forwarded by Mike’s cousin, Delle, who’s a very savvy guy…..former CIA, Merrill Lynch, etc…..lives near Phoenix.
PLEASE PASS THIS OUTRAGE TO AS MANY AS POSSIBLE!!
>>> This should be read by everyone, especially important to those over 75……. If you are younger, then it applies to your parents.
>>> Your hospital Medicare admittance has just changed under Obama Care.
>>> You must be admitted by your Primary Care Physician in order for Medicare to pay for it!
>>> If you are admitted by an emergency room doctor it is treated as outpatient care where hospital costs are not covered.
This is only the tip of the iceberg for Obama Care. Just wait to see what happens in 2013 -2014!
Age 76 today, I went to the Dr. for my monthly B12 shot that I have been getting for a number of years. The nurse came and got me, got out the needle filled and ready to go then looked at the computer and got very quiet and asked if I was prepared to pay for it. I said no that my insurance takes care of it. She said that Medicare had turned it down and went to talk to my Dr. about it. 15 minutes later she came back and said, she was sorry but they had tried every-thing they could but Medicare is beginning to turn many things away for seniors because of the projected Obama Care coming in. She was brushing at tears and said, “Someday they too will get old”, I am so very sorry!!
Be informed please. . . . . . .!!
YOU ARE NOT GOING TO LIKE THIS…
>>> Page 272: At age 76 when you most need it, you are not eligible for cancer treatment.
What Nancy Pelosi didn’t want us to know until after the healthcare bill was passed.
Remember she said, “We have to pass the Bill so that we can see what’s in it.”
JUDGE KITHIL of Marble Falls, TX is the 2nd OFFICIAL who has highlighted the most egregious pages of the HEALTH CARE BILL – HB3200.
Please read this……. especially note the reference to:
>>> Page 50/section 152: The bill will provide insurance to all non-U.S. residents, even if they are here illegally.
>>> Page 58 and 59: The government will have real-time access to an individual’s bank account and will have the authority to make electronic fund transfers from those accounts.
>>> Page 65/section 164: The plan will be subsidized (by the government) for all union members, union retirees and for community organizations (such as the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now – ACORN).
>>> Page 203/line 14-15: The tax imposed under this section will not be treated as a tax. (How could anybody in their right mind comes up with that?)
>>> Page 241 and 253: Doctors will all be paid the same regardless of specialty, and the government will set all Doctors’ fees.
>>> Page 272. section 1145: Cancer hospital will ration care according to the patient’s age.
>>> Page 317 and 321: The government will impose a prohibition on hospital expansion; however, communities may petition for an exception.
>>> Page 425, line 4-12: The government mandates advance-care planning consultations. Those on Social Security will be required to attend an “end-of-life planning” seminar every five years. (Death counseling)
>>> Page 429, line 13-25: The government will specify which doctors can write an end-of-life order.
HAD ENOUGH????
Judge Kithil then goes on to identify:
“Finally, it is specifically stated that this Bill will not apply to members of Congress. All of the above should give you the ammo you need to oppose Obamacare.

Copy of viral email

During Obamas 1st term he dealt with and got his Health Care Bill Passed! Poop And Crap that it is!
Thanks for nothing Mr. Obama.

Now I hear in the news that this term he is planning on dealing with Immigration and Gun Control. Oh boy, I can’t wait to see what the congress and Mr. Obama come up with to help solve these issues. But figure if possible it will be as lame as his Health Care Bill.

National Debit

We will build a Ramp Political joke about nat debt

We Read All The Jokes – But Will Someone PLEASE Tell Me What The HELL Is Wrong With The People We Elected To Run This Country!!

An Overview of the United States National Debt

National Debt: The amount is the gross federal debt issued by the United States Department of the Treasury since 1790. It doesn’t include state and local debt, and it doesn’t include the so-called unfunded liabilities of entitlement programs like Social Security and Medicare.

Gross Federal Debt: That’s the gross amount of debt issued by the US Treasury.

Debt held by the public + debt held by federal government accounts = Gross Federal Debt.

The Current Outstanding Public Debt of the United States is: $16,687,289,180,215.37.

Every man, woman and child in the United States currently owes $54,924 for their share of the U.S. public debt.

Last Updated: Sunday, March 3rd, 2013 (updated daily)

“The Debt to the Penny and Who Holds it.”

Did you know the U.S. government owes a total of $4.5 trillion (Jan 2011)

The top three country’s are China, Japan and the U.K.

A trillion dollars is so large a number that only politicians can use the term in conversation… probably because they seldom think about what they are really saying. I’ve read that mathematicians do not even use the term trillion!

Here is some perspective on TRILLION:

  • How Much Is One Trillion Dollars
  • A trillion dollars = $1,000,000,000,000.
  • That’s 12 zeroes to the left of the decimal point.
  • A trillion is a million million dollars.
  • A million seconds is 12 days.
  • A billion seconds is 31 years.
  • A trillion seconds is 31,688 years.
  • A million minutes ago was – 1 year, 329 days, 10 hours and 40 minutes ago.
  • A billion minutes ago was just after the time of Christ.
  • A million hours ago was in 1885.
  • A billion hours ago man had not yet walked on earth.

The US Department of State has a budget of $36 billion. With one trillion dollars we could run the State Department for almost 30 years without bothering to earn any interest on the money.

It would take a military jet flying at the speed of sound, reeling out a roll of dollar bills behind it, 14 years before it reeled out one trillion dollar bills.

The Fiscal Cliff is the combination of tax increases (from expiring tax cuts) and across-the-board government spending cuts by US Federal Government. America will, in the media’s terms, “fall over the cliff.” Among other things, it will mean a tax increase the size of which has not been seen by Americans in 60 years.

So Where Is All That Money Going?

The U.S. is providing hundreds of millions of dollars of foreign aid to some of the world’s richest countries – while at the same time borrowing billions back, according to report seen by Congress.

Data from July 2012 Congressional Research Service report.

The United States is the world’s top donor by far and recently has continued to pump around $50 billion in aid to other countries each year.

See where U.S. dollars flow, the government’s website has a handy, interactivemap.

*************************************************

Imagine If

The GOVERNMENT
Gave ‘US’ the Same Support They
Give to Other Countries.

**************************************************

Imagine If…

The GOVERNMENT
Stopped Spending Money We Don’t
Have Sending It to Foreign Countries
that Still Hate us!!!

**************************************************

Imagine If…

The “House” The “Senate” and
The “President” Stopped Blaming Each Other for
Not Being Able To Reach Agreement On a
New Budget and Instead Just Got the Job Done!

***************************************************

Imagine If…

The Budget Didn’t Include Raising Our Taxes Again.
And Spent Our Tax Dollars On Our Country First!

****************************************************

Imagine If…

For Once The “House,” The “Senate” and
The “President” Did There Jobs With
Honesty and Honor, In the BEST INTEREST
of the People Who ELECTED Them, Like They
Are SUPPOSE To Be Doing?

*****************************************************

Imagine If…

The People That Run This Country
Who Keep Spending All Our Tax Money That’s Not Available –
Had To Start PAYING IT BACK Out Of Their Own Pockets!

I Think They Might Spending Our Tax Dollars More Wisely Instead of  Like It Grew On Trees!

If the politicians can’t balance the U.S. Governments bank account, well, I Think We Need To Put My Daddy In Charge of every penny in the Federal Check Book.

Why?

Because he has NEVER had a NSF Check Or a Utility Bill Shut off Notice and we always had plenty of Food and New Shoes at the Start of School each Year. So I know He knows how to spend what he has, and still pay what needs to be paid without going Bankrupt! Plus he was able to make regular deposits into a  Savings Account for a Rainy Day!

It just annoys me because as my dad could do it his whole life WHY the HECK can’t these  !&(*%$# people we elected to handle things that are getting paid big bucks in Washington DC do IT!!??

Because they are stupid or greedy? I’m sure I know the answer to that question. What I can’t figure out is why they are still there and elected again and again??

Or maybe it’s “We the people” because we are  doing nothing to stop and correct things but just keep voting blindly and putting these no-good people in office !

Soldier in dust storm

Yes.. It is like that!

Count your blessings, pray for them,

Talk to your Creator

The other car cuts you off and you must hit the brakes,

Or, you have to park a little further from Walmart than you want to be,

Or

you’re served slightly warm food at the restaurant,

Or you’re sitting and cursing the traffic in front of you,

Or

the shower runs out of hot water, Think of them…

Protecting your freedom!

-Message from Iraq

The proud warriors of Baker Company wanted to do

Something to pay tribute

To our fallen comrades so since we are part of the only

Marine Infantry Battalion left in Iraq the one way that we could

Think of doing that is by taking a picture of

Baker Company saying the way we feel.

It would be awesome if you could find a way to share

This with our fellow countrymen.

I was wondering if there was any way to get this into your

Papers to let the world know that

soldiers spell out 911 we remember

‘WE HAVE NOT FORGOTTEN’

And are proud to serve our country.

Semper Fi 1stSgt Dave Jobe.

The attached photo

was forwarded from one of the last U.S. Marine companies in Iraq

They would like to have it passed to as many people as possible, to let the

folks back home know that they remember why they’re there and

that they remember those who’ve been lost…

True or False with question mark

This email is TRUE

What is wrong with this picture?

The picture is of the five nuclear carriers… Just like Battleship Row, Pearl Harbor, December 7, 1941.

This picture was taken the other day in NORFOLK, VA. (February 8, 2013).

The Obama Administration ordered 5 nuclear carriers into harbor for “routine” (?) inspections.

Heads of the Navy were flabbergasted by the directive.

The first time since WWII that five U.S. aircraft carriers were docked together.

USS Dwight D. Eisenhower (CVN 69), USS George H.W. Bush (CVN 77), USS Enterprise (CVN 65), USS Harry S. Truman (CVN 75), and USS Abraham Lincoln (CVN 72) are all in port at Naval Station Norfolk, VA, the world’s largest naval station.

Sources stated that this breached a long standing military protocol in the Navy meant to avoid a massive enemy strike on major US forces.
