I have to add a short commentary about the comment made by President Obama about Rush Limbaugh, "You can't just listen to Rush Limbaugh and get things done." The comment was made during a discussion about the BAILOUT - the latest in a long string of BAILOUTS.

Rush has managed to irritate and anger every liberal out there! They are totally getting their panties in a wad! For this reason, he is my hero!! I do not agree with Rush on every issue (in particular his position that he hopes Obama fails)and honestly I get a little tired of him constantly patting himself on the back, but he really can get the Dems in an uproar!! I think that we should all tune in and turn it UP!!! GO RUSH, GO!!

The first 11 Days

Well I can honestly say that I am not surprised about the events of the last week and a half. Obama has chosen a tax evader for the Secretary of the Treasury, allowed the Dems to add billions of taxpayer money in pork to the BAILOUT, continues to be an enabler to the corrupt practices of Wall Street and the big banks. is funding overseas abortions and has picked Tom Daschle (another tax evader) to head up the Department of Health and Human Services.

About the only thing I agree with Obama is the Superbowl. I am a lifelong STEELERS supporter and I am going to be cheering on my boys tomorrow night (Sorry, if you are a Cardinals fan!)!!

I am convinced that the STEELERS can hear me cheering all the way from Texas and it is my constant support and thirty years of LOVE that got them into the Superbowl!! Hey, a girl can dream, can't I ??

This is how I am coping with the the change of leadership - FOOTBALL - completely submersing my brain into something other than politics and finance; (I grew up in Odessa, Texas - the home of the Permian Panthers and the world famous Ratliff Stadium. Yes, we are football fanatics, but NO, Odessa is not the wide spot in the road full of ignorant rednecks portrayed in Friday Night Lights. Some of those rednecks are quite intelligent.) I am, however, wondering what will I do after the game?? There will be seven (count them, s-e-v-e-n) LONG months until next season. Don't get me wrong... I am completely grateful for the prolonged STEELERS season this year. But what about the next seven months? I guess I will just have to toughen up and deal.

There is a light in the headlines this week (besides the upcoming STEELERS big win this weekend). The GOP chose Michael Steele as the new Republican Party Chairman. I had posted about Michael Steele several months ago. On November 14, 2008, I posted these comments about him as someone to watch as a future GOP leader.

"Former MD LT Gov MICHAEL STEELE: VERY ACCOMPLISHED AND IMPRESSIVE.He obtained his undergraduate degree at Johns Hopkins and his JD at Georgetown University. Steele considered the priesthood and spent three years in seminary, but decided on a career in law before taking the vows. I heard Michael Steele this morning on FOX NEWS, I like what I am hearing from him. He said that Republicans do not have to become more like the Democrats to regain the trust of the Conservatives - they have to "get their act together and get back to the values, roots and principals of the Republican Party." He said that those that think they should move to the left are welcome to join the Democratic Party." I couldn't agree with him more!!

I think this is a step in the RIGHT direction for the party and is exactly what we need to rally the Conservative base. John McCain was too wishy-washy and too tight with Ted Kennedy in my view. Steele is someone that expresses the position that he is not willing to compromise his conservative values in an effort to become more palateable to the left. I used the phrase "Expressed" because obviously only time will tell if he is REALLY willing to follow through. I can not speak for everyone, but this is precisely what I want in party leadership, someone willing to take the heat and do what is right anyway.

Now if we can just convince SARAH to run in 2012, we will be all set!!

OKAY, these just made me laugh

These headlines appeared tonight on Fox News:

"Obama Tells Republicans to Quit Listening to Limbaugh" Duh! I cannot imagine why he does not like Rush!!

"Wal-Mart Worker Accused of Rolling Back Prices" Of course, they are rolling back prices, I thought that was their JOB.

...and this gem:

"Blago Hires Same PR Firm as Drew Peterson"
You know what a great job they did for Peterson! LOL

This nice one was on

"Urgent action needed on economy, Obama says" Duh!! Glad he noticed; I thought he was too busy with his abortion agenda.

The winner of the Grand Pubaa Prize is this advertisement on check this out:

If this does not exemplify what Bill O'Reilly has been saying for years about media bias, I don't know what does.

Just had to share a laugh!!

My blood pressure is SKY HIGH

I was really hoping to be pleasantly surprised by Obama; however, he is clearly living up to the pre-election expectations. This was on the AP yesterday:

"President Barack Obama signed a memorandum Friday that ends a prohibition on supplying federal family-planning funds and contraceptives to international aid groups that provide abortions, abortion referrals or abortion counseling."

Additionally, this appeared in an article on the Fox News site:

"The national security orders (signed by Obama on the 22nd) mandate that interrogation techniques in the Army Field Manual be used by all intelligence and law enforcement services; call for a task force to look at closing the detention center in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, within the year; and orders a strategy to be developed for handling detainees in the future. The presidential directive also orders a stay in the case of Ali Al-Marri, the only person being held by the military as an enemy combatant on U.S. soil."

All these new policies are reversals of directives by the Bush administration. Obama and his supporters are for killing unborn innocent babies and for playing nice with the terrorists that want to kill us all? Hmmm, anybody else see a problem with his logic??

I know that people are all over the map about the abortion issue, but the vast majority of the country believes that there should be restrictions with rape and medical exceptions. There is more red tape for a person to get a tattoo or to buy cigarettes than there is for an abortion.

Abortion activists believe that an underage girl should be able to get an abortion with out her parents permission and be taken over state lines without parental consent to obtain abortions. My daughter's school will not give her a Children's Tylenol without permission from us. What on earth makes any person think they should be able to help an underage girl have ANY medical procedure without consulting the parents?? I guess I shouldn't just go after the Dems - Rick Perry (the jackass governor of Texas) issued an executive order for all girls to be vaccinated for HPV by the sixth grade. Of course, I have never made any secret of the fact that I find Rick Perry to be the worst governor that Texas has had in my lifetime.

I can not say I am surprised about Obama's actions his first week in office. This is why I campaigned so hard against the Democratic Party, not just Obama. They want complete control over every aspect of our - your - lives. They are chiseling away at the American way of life. The Democratic agenda is now to become your momma, your daddy and your caretaker. We are all too dumb to take care of ourselves, too dumb to manage our own money, make decisions for our children; so they will do it for us. How dare these politicians think they know what medical treatments my daughter needs??

WARNING: The more dependant we become on government to be our caretakers- the more control they have. Eventually, if this trend keeps progressing, they will have complete control over all the money, food supplies, medical care and everything else because they are so arrogant that they believe that we are incapable to taking care of ourselves.

Unfortunately, half this country has become so damn lazy, they are perfectly happy to let the government take care of them. They expect and believe that it is the role of government to provide health care, food and shelter to every man, woman and child in this country and the rest of the world. I am not sure where they get this idea; it is not how our Constitution reads.

President George W. Bush and his lovely wife, Laura, returned to Texas today. Listening to his speech in Midland, I am still in awe of the grace and kindness he is showing to President Obama. He called him a "good man" and offered his prayers for his presidency and expressed anticipation of good things.

Mr. President - I want to thank you for the good things you did while you were my President. I thank you for the Supreme Court appointments you made - Chief Justice Roberts and Justice Alito. I thank you for your courage and resolution to take a stand against terrorism. I thank you for making the tough decisions; most of us can only imagine the stress and pressure that comes with the job that you were willing to do. Even in times I disagreed with your choice, I have no doubt that you did what you truely believed to be in the best interest of every man, woman and child in the United States of America. I have no doubt that your decisions were made with information not readily available to the general public; I also do not doubt that they every decision was prayerfully considered. I thank you for sharing your lovely bride, our First Lady, Laura. She has been just incredible and we have been honored to have her. Thank you for keeping us safe from additional terror attacks. I just want to thank you, so...


P.S. I have cold beer, hot steaks and fried jalapenos waiting on Texoma!! Come on up!

For those of you that may not be familiar with Glenn Beck; he has a new program on the Fox News Channel. He is a brilliant, insightful commentator with a wicked sense of humor. I have had the privilege of listening to Glenn on the radio for several years prior to his television debut on CNN three years ago. Now I am not commuting anymore and do not get to listen to the radio show like I used to, but now I can DVR the new Fox show and see Glenn's puffy, pale face (love ya Glenn!!), better yet I can hear his voice and his magnificent perspective on what is going on in the world.

Glenn Beck is a real guy with a heart; his humor is priceless. He is also a best selling author and a hot chocolate connoisseur. I read his last book in one sitting; I simply could not put it down. I am really looking forward to him being around for a long time!

This is someone ya'll may want to check out!!


I would like to point out a few examples of class, examples that are rarely seen in the political climate we face today. President Bush is going out in style. He is not making a lot of fuss; he is going out quietly and allowing the President Elect to have his time. He has taken quite a beating from the left and they are not finished with him yet. Even as he prepares to leave the White House, the extremists are still calling for him to be prosecuted. Unlike the Clinton administration that stole all th "W" keys from the White House keyboards, George W. Bush instructed his staff to show respect to the incoming staff of President Elect Obama and he has been gracious to the Obama family.

Another great example is Sarah Palin. She was on Glenn Beck's new Fox News Program. Glenn asked her if Obama will be HER President. Her response was that he absolutely is her president. She spoke about her pride in America and her desire to see Obama do good things for this country because she is an American first. She did not have an ugly word to say about him and acknowleged that while they have differing views on many issues; she said that she has no doubt about his desire to serve this country and to bring about positive changes.

The last example I would like to point out is President Elect Barack Obama. I do not agree with most of his positions, but like him or not he will be sworn in tomorrow as the 44th President of the United States. He has shown himself to be a class act. He has reached out to Hilary Clinton and to John McCain. He has reached accross the isle and brought people to the table that surprised many. He has stood his ground against his most ardent supporters in his choice of Rick Warren to give the Inaugural Prayer. I am not likely to agree with most of his political positions, but I will show respect to the office and to the man.

It is okay to agree to disagree. Now is the time to lead by example; I hope that all my conservative friends will join me in prayer for our incoming President and will show others that we can disagree on issues without hate and without name-calling and without hoping/wishing for his failure.

Blagojevich is the biggest ass I have ever seen. This is what he had to say following his overdue impeachment. "The causes of the impeachment are because I've done things to fight for families."

I think Bob Beckel was right. He should just plead insanity and collect disability.
This is going to be the gift that keeps on giving...

Here is a headline from this morning, try not to lose consciousness when your blood pressure spikes!!

Democratic Governors Asking Government for $1T Bailout Package
Governors from Wisconsin, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York and Ohio are seeking funds to deal with unprecedented state budget shortfalls in 41 states and Washington, D.C.

Seems like if Massachusetts needs money the Kennedy's could float them a loan rather than ask the taxpayers to BAILOUT a mismanaged state. If you don't have it, DON'T SPEND IT. How can Mass. not have any money?? Greenwich alone could fund a state as small as Mass.

Here are your crappy mismanagers of your taxpayer money requesting the latest BAILOUT.
Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick
New York Gov. David Paterson
New Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine
Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland
Wisconsin Gov. Jim Doyle

Is anybody else tired of BAILOUTS? Does anybody know where the money is going?? NO ONE knows where it is all going.

The Fed has 22 major departments in which trillions of taxpayer money is dispersed. Those departments (Departments of Education, Homeland Security, etc.) then disperse the funds to divisions of each department and they continue to trickle down until there is nothing left.

There is very little oversight and the money is often spent in ways not intended by the Fed or the States when it is given out. Agencies will inflate estimated needs in order to increase funding, others will invent new and exciting ways to spend grant money because if they do not spend it all they will not get a matching amount the following year.

One example that I took notice of is when my boyfriend (now husband) took a job with a company that did construction on military bases. In 1993, he was flown to Hawaii, The Kingdom of Tonga and one other place to work. The job in Hawaii was replacing the carpeting in an officers club. When he came home, he said that the carpet he removed was only one year old and looked brand new. Furthermore, the club was scheduled for demolition the following year. The military paid his airfare, shipping for his tools and materials, labor charges and hotel. This entire expenditure was nothing but a waste of taxpayer money. There are so many things wrong with this that I am not sure where to start. We can afford to recarpet an officers club, but can not take care of our veterans.

An old friend from high school has become a powerhouse in Texas politics as founder of a non-profit watchdog organization, specifically watching spending and government waste of taxpayer money. Michael Quinn Sullivan is president of Empower Texans. He is a Conservative Republican that is openly critical of other Republicans that are fiscally irresponsible with taxpayer money.

I hope to see Michael emerge as a national figure. He is completely brilliant in fiscal matters and is diligent in his pursuit of good stewardship of the money hard working taxpayers earned. For my friends in Texas check out the website, Perhaps someone will encourage him to go to Washington and straighten out the boneheads. Better yet, maybe he will run for office one day...I'll bet he could cut the budget by 33% just by eliminating wasteful spending. WE NEED YOU IN DC, MICHAEL!!

Will 2009 be any better?

I am a realist with an optimistic undertone. I always try to hope for the best, but plan for the worst. Unfortunately, I am not overly encouraged by the headlines as 2008 comes to a close.

"GM Gets $4 Billion In Low Interest Loans; Chrysler Still Waiting"

"Governor Appoints Burris to US Senate" (Blagojevich)

"Dozens die in New Year's nightclub fire in Bangkok"

"Atheists want 'God' out of inaugural oath"

"Thousands of stores to disappear in '09"

"AIG seeks to ease repayment terms for government loan"

Can you believe Blagojevich??!! He has got to be one of the most blatant examples of narcissism I have ever seen. I am truly amazed at his astronomical arrogance and complete lack of contrition. If I had been caught on tape saying the things he said, I would be completely mortified - but not him!! It is business as usual! He is not the least bit concerned that it is entirely inappropriate for him to have made ANY appointments. His own party is disgusted with him, demanded that he resign and he just keeps going.

I have to wonder what Burris was thinking in accepting this appointment... Really, if he asked ME to fill the seat, I would not want my name associated with his in any form or fashion. Then again, it seems that Burris' political career was circling the bowl when this opportunity arose; maybe he figured this was his only shot. He has been defeated in the last several elections that he entered, including the race to be Governor of Illinois; he was beaten by Blagojevich. Hmmmm...

Check out this snippet from the Chicago SunTimes: "Burris, his lobbying firm, his clients and a law firm that includes him donated $127,986 to Blagojevich since the governor took office. Burris himself gave $4,500 to the governor, including $1,000 last June. His lobbying firm, Burris & Lebed Consulting, gave $10,796 in cash and services. The law firm with which Burris is affiliated kicked in $5,000 for the governor. Burris' consulting firm has gotten $294,546.30 in state contracts under Blagojevich." This can't be good...but it seems completely in Blagojevich's character to pick a guy with whom he has financial ties.

Then we have AIG. Poor AIG and their financial woes. They are concerned that it may difficult to repay the government the $60 BILLION loan - part of the $150 BILLION BAILOUT package. They are asking that the guidelines for repayment be lightened. They agreed to those terms less than a month ago!! ARE THEY SERIOUS??!! I will say it again and again, DOJ or THE ATTORNEY GENERAL NEED TO OPEN A CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION INTO AIG!! Something is astonishingly wrong at AIG and I believe that authorities have the responsibility to investigate. When Patrick Fitzgerald is finished with Blagojevich, he needs to turn his attention to AIG execs!

Of course, we have a new incoming president; this means a lot of changes for the country. His views are quite different from the outgoing president. At least Obama cannot disappoint me; my expectations are low. The man has no where to go but up in my book!

We get to start this new year off by watching Illinois to see if the controversial appointment is confirmed, by watching the far left go out of their freaking minds about Rick Warren say a prayer at the inauguration and by watching AIG and other BAILOUT beneficiaries squander the taxpayers hard earned money at the spa while trying to get out of repaying the loan.

Gee, I am suddenly not feeling so optimistic anymore...
