Four Great Religious Truths

During these serious and trying times, people of all faiths should remember these four great religious truths:

1. Muslims do not recognize Jews as G-d’s chosen people.
2. Jews do not recognize Christ as the Messiah.
3. Protestants do not recognize the Pope as the leader of the Christian world.
4. Baptists do not recognize each other at Hooters.

    A joke for the weekend….(this one goes out to Lucysdaddy :em93: )

    On a tour of Florida, the Pope took a couple of days off to visit the coast for some sightseeing.
    He was cruising along the beach in his Popemobile when he heard a frantic commotion just off shore
    A helpless man wearing a New York Yankees jersey was struggling frantically to escape the jaws of a 25 ft shark.

    As the Pope watched, horrified, a speedboat came racing up with 3 men wearing Boston Red Sox jerseys aboard. One quickly fired a harpoon into the sharks side. The other 2 reached out and pulled the bleeding , semi-conscious Yankee fan from the water and using autographed Manny Ramirez baseball bats, the three Beantown heroes beat the shark to death and dragged it into the boat.

    Immediately the Pope shouted and summoned the men to the beach, ” I give you my blessing for your brave actions” he told them. ” I had heard that there was some bitter hatred between Red Sox fans and Yankee fans, but now I have seen with my own eyes that this is not the truth”

    As the Pope drove off, the harpooner asked his buddies, ” who was that? ”

    “It was the Pope” one replied, ” he is in direct contact with God and has access to all of God’s wisdom”

    ” Well,” the harpooner said, ” he may have access to all of God’s wisdom, but he sure doesn’t know anything about shark fishing..How’s the bait holding up?”

    Wanna have some fun? Get on any liberal board and make a few comments and wait for them to play the race card (as you know they always will).

    Then tell them you support Cain/West in 2012….two black men. REAL black men, not half-black like the current Oval Officer pretender.

    Stand back and watch as heads boil!

    And BTW, I would crawl naked on broken glass to vote for a Cain/West ticket. But that’s just me, your mileage may vary.

    The Ruling Junta wants to keep Americans tied down to one spot.
    Hence
    1.Little battery cars that are like shopping carts.Limited range
    2. A nationwide Health insurance where you have to apply to the Health district where you want to move. And be told no, we have no room for You. Oh yes.Didn’t think of that in ObamaNoCare plan?
    3. Ruin the flight industry by creating a group of robots to insult and harass flyers. It is class warfare,too. Keep you from flying.
    5.Gas prices up up up. this keeps Americans from driving around and getting things done for their families.Certainly not driving to texas to check on a job.
    Mendacious and directed from above by controllers of the Ruling Junta.

    Pres. Obama should have gone to McDonald’s to tell the employees how proud he was of his jobs creation program there. The One could have stolen the show by being dressed as Ronald McDonald…he could have been portraying his real character, a CLOWN

    Notice how he handles all situations that are detramental to the USA, he goes out to play. Now with the job market when it is real bad and people are trying to find jobs, he wants to play (golf, basketball, go to parties). yet the real president (Soros) is pulling the strings.

    Zero is stupid. His puppet handlers are not. This is not part of a master plan by Zero, who is not smart enough to set an alarm clock. This is part of a master plan by his puppet handlers, who rarely send Zero out without a fully loaded teleprompter, because he’s stupid and proves it every time he speaks without it. Their agenda is identical, but Zero doesn’t have the brains to pull it off without the planning of others and a compliant media, who cover for his ignorance and laziness, and give positive venue for every lie he tells. Some are giving him credit where none is due. He’s just the dummy sitting on Soros knee.

    Obama’s policies have put more people on welfare than any president before him so this placement is most appropriate. Unlike the Nobel Peace Prize, for which he did nothing, this is an “honor” he richly deserves.

    The Left Blogosphere goes crazy over Palin’s latest supposed ‘gaffe’: Claiming that Paul Revere did his famous ride to ‘warn the British’.

    First, here’s the clip of what Palin said:

    [url]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oS4C7bvHv2w&feature=player_embedded[/url]

    Naturally, the Left leaped to the idea that Palin was saying Revere did his entire ride to WARN THE BRITISH, and the result was a tidal wave of scorn:

    [url]http://patterico.com/2011/06/03/does-it-ever-cross-their-mind-that-sarah-palin-might-actually-know-something/[/url]

    The guy at Patterico lists no less than 30 media sources jumping all over Palin for getting this basic fact of American history ‘wrong’.

    Only one problem: Palin never says the entire reason Revere did his complete ride was to warn the British. She stated that at one point during his ride Revere warned the British the colonial militia was gathering to meet them.

    Guess what? She’s RIGHT.

    The guy at Legal Insurrection has the entire quote from Revere’s own writings, where Revere warned some British officers he encountered that he had been raising the alarm and that 500 colonial militia would be meeting them soon if they continued to advance.

    Here’s the relevant quote:

    [url]http://legalinsurrection.blogspot.com/2011/06/so-now-all-these-people-will-apologize.html[/url]

    [quote]I observed a Wood at a Small distance, & made for that. When I got there, out Started Six officers, on Horse back,and orderd me to dismount;-one of them, who appeared to have the command, examined me, where I came from,& what my Name Was? I told him. it was Revere, he asked if it was Paul? I told him yes He asked me if I was an express? I answered in the afirmative. He demanded what time I left Boston? I told him; and aded, that their troops had catched aground in passing the River, and that There would be five hundred Americans there in a short time, for I had alarmed the Country all the way up. He imediately rode towards those who stoppd us, when all five of them came down upon a full gallop; one of them, whom I afterwards found to be Major Mitchel, of the 5th Regiment, Clapped his pistol to my head, called me by name, & told me he was going to ask me some questions, & if I did not give him true answers, he would blow my brains out. He then asked me similar questions to those above. He then orderd me to mount my Horse, after searching me for arms[/quote]

    So as you can see, Revere did warn the British the militia was forming to oppose them and there would be a fight if they continued to advance.

    This isn’t the first time the Make Believe Media has leaped to call Palin an idiot about American history.

    Patterico remembers several months back when addressing a Tea Party rally when Palin said they should all get ready to ‘party like it’s 1773!”, how the Lefty blogosphere erupted in ridicule:

    [quote]But if you have been following this blog long enough, you know I already wrote the post months ago. As I said here:

    To pre-judge a person is to literally “judge before.” Before what? Before it is appropriate, before you have all the facts. Of course normally we think of prejudice as being based on specific traits. Racial prejudice is to judge a man by his skin color, rather than getting enough facts to judge him as an individual. But it can be based on anything.

    Take for instance, Sarah Palin. Liberals have convinced themselves that Palin is a moron. So when Sarah Palin told a crowd of Tea Partiers that it was too soon to “party like its 1773” liberals freaked out. OMG, she is so stupid. Doesn’t she know the American Revolution was in 1776? As well documented by Cuffy Meigs, Markos Moulitsas, Gwen Ifil (who moderated Palin’s debate with Joe Biden) and others mocked her in that fashion.

    One guy, Steve Paulo showed enough introspection to wonder “WTF happened in 1773?!” Well, hey, I was a history major, but I couldn’t rattle off every event of any year, 1773 or otherwise. But I can google. As of this moment the first link I get is this. You only have to page down once to discover that in December of that year was the original Boston Tea Party. You know, the event that the Tea Party is self-consciously invoking with its very name? Yeah, [i]that[/i] one.[/quote]

    Again, they try to twist what Palin said to make her look dumb, and fail. They are seriously trying to sell an interpretation that she thought the reason for Paul Revere’s ride that night was to ‘warn the British’.

    If the GOP is lambasted for sexual escapades because they preach family values, then the left should be lambasted for everything they preach to us. Never before in our history have so many politicians felt this comfortable telling us what NOT to do and then turn right around and do it themselves. Over the last 200 and some odd years we have ruined our government by allowing those that make the laws become elite. The Obama’s have taken it to the next step.

    The first couple are following in the tradition of all authoritarians since man discovered they could rule and enslave others: do as I say, not as I do. How is this thug any different that …Fidel Castro? Hugo Chavez? Putin and Stalin? Or hundreds of others who pauperize their people with words and ideas glorifying a philosophy that elevates them above the mess they create and shoves the rest of mankind to their knees? How is he any different that a banana republic strongman of Africa, living like a Caesar while the rest of his people starve? He is a bully, an autocrat, and a man who spent his entire life in the embrace of a politics which gave him a narrative to spellbind and steal. Socialism is the siren song of the thief and the liar. And like you have noticed, it’s the little things people do which open the window on their character. They may have had the best “education” that other people’s money can buy, but in the end these two lack class and breeding and when they get the opportunity to get “stuff for free” they are at the front of the line, all elbows and shoves.

    Obama is utterly ignorant of basic federal laws. Under the War Powers Resolution, 50 U.S.C. 1541-1548, the federal law acts to check the power of the President in committing the United States to an armed conflict without the consent of Congress. The resolution allows the President to send U.S. armed forces into action abroad only by authorization of Congress or in case of “a national emergency created by attack upon the United States, its territories or possessions, or its armed forces.”

    The President is required to notify Congress within 48 hours of committing armed forces to military action and forbids armed forces from remaining for more than 60 days, with a further 30 day withdrawal period, without an authorization of the use of military force or a declaration of war.

    Aaaah, it looks like Mr. Pres be seriously breaking the law. And no, Obama it is not sufficient to “consult” with Congress, which we know he did not because he committed our troops to Libya when he was not even in the US. When is Congress and the American people going to start holding this incompetent charlatan for is illegal and unconstitutional conduct? When?

    Pathological liars…and pathological killers.

    This is what the Obama administration has descended into.

    Only a Democrat could support the twisted logic that makes the targeted assasination of another leader fine and dandy.

    This is the monster that Obama has become.
