Happy me:) From the Presque Isle Advance:
To the editor:
Can you think of any other President that could expect to get reelected with unemployment numbers over 8%. Yet President Obama has the media in his back pocket, telling us all how great he is for keeping it under 9%, using every mathematical slight-of-hand to produce a percentage point here or there, ad nauseam.
No other president could make you believe that you are part of a class, as if we were in a caste system. As if you are born to poverty, and in poverty you shall remain, no matter how hard you try. We are Americans, able to produce with our own ideas and our own labor. This President puts you in a group, assumes you have no talent or worth, and makes you bitter about the other guy, in another group.
No other president could convince you that your right to free speech is limited by the right of others not to be offended. This President makes you the target because you were mistakenly under the impression he would defend the Constitution when he took the oath of office.
A president can affect the outcome of world challenges, and in the past, most have tried to keep America’s influence at the forefront for American prosperity. This President fancies himself a world equalizer, by bringing us down to the level that is beneath us. Americans who make $34,000 or more are part of the world’s 1% of highest income earners, redistributing that to cause equality will ruin us.
No other president could get away with telling Americans they didn’t build their fortune, big or small. His attitude toward prosperity conditions you to feel incompetent and shameful.
I heard someone say that Obama is at least the “devil that you know,” implying it makes no sense to vote for Romney. But, I don’t believe most people really know what Obama’s intentions are, even though they have knowledge of the past 4 years.
It’s not funny, it’s not a game, and it’s not just another election. This election goes to the heart of whether America will continue its decline, or be put on a path to prosperity. Believe in America.

Mark Levin Gives Unvarnished Truth
MARK LEVIN: We conservatives, we do not accept bipartisanship in the pursuit of tyranny. Period. We will not negotiate the terms of our economic and political servitude. Period. We will not abandon our child to a dark and bleak future. We will not accept a fate that is alien to the legacy we inherited from every single future generation in this country. We will not accept social engineering by politicians and bureaucrats who treat us like lab rats, rather than self-sufficient human beings. There are those in this country who choose tyranny over liberty. They do not speak for us, 57 million of us who voted against this yesterday, and they do not get to dictate to us under our Constitution.
We are the alternative. We will resist. We're not going to surrender to this. We will not be passive, we will not be compliant in our demise. We're not good losers, you better believe we're sore losers! A good loser is a loser forever. Now I hear we're called 'purists.' Conservatives are called purists. The very people who keep nominating moderates, now call us purists the way the left calls us purists. Yeah, things like liberty, and property rights, individual sovereignty, and the Constitution, and capitalism. We're purists now. And we have to hear this crap from conservatives, or pseudo-conservatives, Republicans."It always amazes me the sheer number of women who defend abortion. Legal abortion has killed 52 million innocents since '73, that means 26 million roughly, were women. Sick." -Jen KuznickiAny woman who understands the problems of running a home will be nearer to understanding the problems of running a country. -Margaret ThatcherEntrepreneurs and their small enterprises are responsible for almost all the economic growth in the United States. -Ronald ReaganI am extraordinarily patient, provided I get my own way in the end. -Margaret ThatcherBroadly speaking, the short words are the best, and the old words best of all. -Winston ChurchillCriticism may not be agreeable, but it is necessary. It fulfils the same function as pain in the human body. It calls attention to an unhealthy state of things. -Winston Churchill
I Don’t Deny Global Warming ExistsI don't deny that global warming exists. It does not exist. There is not a pink elephant in my kitchen. I'm not denying it. It is not there. If I denied that there was a pink elephant in my kitchen, it would have to be there, but I would be lying to myself and everyone and walk around it to cook. But it is not there, therefore, I am not denying that it is.
Snyder said Wednesday that he unconditionally supports expanding the state's Medicaid rolls by roughly 470,000 people. There are 1.9 million people receiving benefits now.
"We're all here to support expanding Medicaid," Snyder said at a news conference called by a large coalition of groups that support the expansion. "We're moving forward with care for people who need it."
The ever-illogical argument that insuring more people will actually cost less. "But health care providers and advocates for the uninsured argue that the state will actually save money -- as much as $1 billion in the first decade -- if fewer residents have to rely on expensive emergency room facilities to address non-life-threatening illnesses and injuries."
Susan Dumass is really quite pedestrian. "The only thing standing in between 450,000 low-income Michiganders and health insurance is Tea Party Republicans' deep-seated hatred of Obamacare."
This week, Michigan’s Rick Snyder became the sixth GOP governor to propose expanding his state’s health insurance program to cover more low-income residents, in line with the Democratic administration’s strong recommendation.
Now that he's made the decision, Snyder must sell the plan to the state legislature, where some members of his own party have repeatedly attempted to distance themselves from the faintest whiff of "Obamacare."
- I can find neither solace or comfort in government. I cannot find hope nor light among those pretending to take my best interest to heart. I cannot worship or revere another human being because there are none alive that can instill my faith. Give me the One God; the One Who had created the heavens and earth and had purposefully breathed life into me. The One Who dwells in the secret place and watches over me and always keeps me company when all others abandoned me. But for Him I would have no purpose in this life; thank you Dear God.
