When Thrift Stores Begin to Outnumber Retail and Grocery Stores…

Patriotic Duty

Just making a casual observation today, in my local community where 2 towns have a combined population of just over 41,000. These hardy citizens have 12+ thrift stores and 5 full service grocery stores (2 of which are Wal-Mart Super Stores) to shop within. Just under two years ago, these numbers were reversed.

Most recently a sixth full service grocery store converted into a huge Good Will. Was it really necessary? Yes, it was by the sheer numbers of shoppers in each store. The local department stores also have dead parking lots and few shoppers, but the shopping carts filled to the brim with pre-owned clothing and goods will be found at any of the local thrift stores. I would say there is no recovery and the recession aka depression is in full destructive mode. The White House and the Bogus POTUS can claim otherwise, but the facts are on full display, even to this casual observer. Take a look within your own community, notate what you see and remember this on Election Day in November. America’s future depends on “We the People” and our vote!

Why Did Petraeus Use the AP To Air Dirty Laundry?

I am still amazed that no one questions the fact that Petraeus made a speech in Kabul and contacted the AP via email as Top US commander: Burning Quran endangers troops to make sure his message was heard worldwide on RELIGION?

“Images of the burning of a Quran would undoubtedly be used by extremists in Afghanistan — and around the world — to inflame public opinion and incite violence,” Petraeus said in an e-mail to The Associated Press.

Now I ask the reader to validate, when did the first public protest happen and where?


What action occurred just prior to these protests?

The Spineless Diatribe of Petraeus in Kabul

The Burn a Qur’an Day had not arrived nor occurred, hmm?

By the way, the Taliban don’t dance around and protest in front of everyone, so… exactly which Muslims are the “good ones”?

What a Re”Volt”ing Development – Dud or Deathtrap?

What a great advertising gimmick, NOT! A National Tour is necessary?

First Responders Perform Live Extrication on a Chevrolet Volt

chevrolet | August 31, 2010

Watch as a Chevrolet Volt is methodically dismantled at a training exercise for emergency personnel in Chicago and learn about Chevrolet and OnStar’s partnership with the National Fire Prevention Association on electric vehicle training for first responders.

I don’t know about the reader, but I just feel all warm and fuzzy, again, NOT! Hey I say, if Congress and the White House used our taxpayer money for bailing out a manufacturer who designed mobile electric chairs, let them drive these beasts. Lead by example, hug your union buds, show Americans how you really support what you desire to push on “We the People”.

White House, Senators, House Representatives be the first proud owners, give one to each of your wives or husbands, don’t forget your children and grandchildren. Let’s see how you put our money where your mouth is!

The Good Samaritan clause ends in a Volt crash. I mean it could turn into one hell of an electrifying experience~

Oh no… General Motors Considering New Engines for Eco-Friendly Chevy Volt… I wonder why?

Easy on the Environment, Tough on Passengers! – Could be a smoking good slogan!?!

What if it’s raining, what if there’s a short in the system, what if the driver is getting electrocuted, what if the battery breaks open? Inquiring minds want to know.

Beginning of a Weak… Link… Al Sharpton

Spreading the Hate, Raising the Use of Force, Stirring the Kettle! Why, because Al Sharpton has failed to conduct himself with honor. When was the first time he ever celebrated the anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr’s Speech?

Al Sharpton: ‘The Dream Has Not Been Achieved’

AssociatedPress | August 28, 2010

The Rev. Al Sharpton says Martin Luther King Jr.’s dream has not been achieved. He spoke Saturday before leading a march in protest of conservative broadcaster Glenn Beck’s rally at the Lincoln Memorial. (Aug. 28)

Rev Al Sharpton BLASTED on CSPAN

Rev Al Sharpton BLASTED on CSPAN

Al Sharpton’s life might have been celebrated, but somewhere along his life, he went astray and became a harbinger of derangement. He is not fit to walk among the better men and women of African American descent nor to be lauded amongst them. He must now be truly aware of this fact. Where is his religion? Is it only on a certificate, hanging on a wall somewhere, gathering dust? A good man, a religious man, a man who wants to unite rather than fight, a charitable man, an honorable man, a faithful man would have found his way to enjoin his flock unto the Restoring Honor event. An opportunity has been lost forever.

Good Time Charlie

Let the Good Times Roll

New Yorkers know how to call out their own ~ Disgraced Rep. Charles Rangel parties with Gov. Paterson, AG Andrew Cuomo at birthday bash

Don’t let anything like a little Ethics investigation by your peers, and in front of your constituents, stop you having a big blowout, Mr. Rangel. Speaking of unethical behaviors… geesh! Dirt that’s going to stick!

If War is Hell Then The Release of U.S. War Logs is the Eternal Fire!

War is Hell

dj3minem | October 03, 2006

This movie is dedicated to all the soldiers who lost their lives in a war.

How did the Afghanistan War Logs get loose to begin with? There was plenty of advanced notice of their debut! They are showing up all over the internet. What kind of slip shot government is the Bogus POTUS running? Can this in any way be good for military morale, their families, or the American citizenry? Our dirty laundry is permitted unrestrained airing and viewing from the South Pole to the North Pole and everywhere in between. Why? And we have another inaction that is destructive to these United States of America! Good SLOB Obama! What price will be paid for this? Is this another purposeful engineered crisis?

What Has Oceana Done for the World Lately? Backing a Faux Climate Change Agenda for a Bogus POTUS?

Have we located a feel good charity work for those in the money? Interesting cast of characters… Oceana’s Board of Directors.

By the way, notice something that is blatantly absent~criticism of the Bogus POTUS’ poor response to non-response in the Gulf of Mexico. hmm? Now why would that be?
