(begin excerpt): Muslim leaders around the world are pleased with Obama’s remark about jihad and Islam: “Well, the phrase jihad has a lot of meanings within Islam. It is subject to lot of different interpretations. But I will say that first Islam is one of the world's great religions and over a billion people practice Islam." (end excerpt)
The article CLEARLY illustrates that Jihad for a Muslim means KILL Christians and Jews at any opportunity.
What are we to conclude from his remarks? When push comes to shove, Emperor Obama will show his bias and he’ll side with Muslims. Not with Americans who are (for the moment anyway) mostly Non-Muslim.
There are 19 primary religions in our world and 33% of the people are "Christian Faiths" and 19.3% are "Islam". I would remind the Emperor that over 2 billion practice the Christian religions - a few more than his 1 Billion Muslim's figure.
Why does the Emperor continually talk about the greatness of Islam and never about the greatness of the Christain faith? He "claims" to be a Christian yet seldom talks about it in a positive way in his speeches about the US. From this we must conclude that he is ashamed of his Christian faith when he fails to make time to mention how great his Christian faith is? Or is it just more of his faking it for votes and support when he claims to be Christian?
Make no mistake - Jihad does not have "many interpretations". Those of the Muslim faith who have declared a Jihad against the US have only one goal in mind - rid the world of all non-muslim infidels any way they can.

So I have a couple of conversations with my socialist, we-should-be-more-like-Britain boss. I’ll present it in conversation format. I will be ‘ME’, he will be ‘SB’ – socialist boss.
SB: do you believe that dim-whit Walker – going to Fla. & Ariz. trying to talk people into retiring here? What a dim-whit!
ME: well, it would be nice not to have my SS (which I am on) taxed since I haven’t had a COLA in 3 years, but the insurance keeps going up!
SB: you still wouldn’t want to stay because it’s too cold!
ME: That may be true, but its making me want to leave faster. Its not an enticing factor, especially if I had grandkids up here.
ME: good lord insurance has gone up
SB: well, of course
ME: what are you talking about? I thought insurance was supposed to go down?! It has more than tripled for me because of all the new regulations, some companies have just decided to either jack their rates or get out of the biz.
SB: if you believe that, I’ve got some swamp land in florida….
ME: you cannot be serious! You think they are just jacking up their rates for the money and nothing else? SB, I spent about 2and a half hours in the insurance ladies office just going over my new options!
SB: of course its only about the money. The regulations only help.
I wondered to myself if he will be saying that next year when his 25yo son – who lives at home, and is still covered by his mom’s insurance – is not covered anymore.
People like this exist, and they vote. Stay vigilant.

Before we get too far along let's remember the definition of terms here:
From the Left -- Obstruction = anytime you question or disagree with my liberal progressive socialist agenda.
From the Left -- Compromise = when you give in to what I want and I don't have to give you anything in return.
Reality -- Stopping or blocking bad legislation is not obstruction it is doing government right.
Reality -- Compromise is when the total package is good for the country and is not overloaded with earmarks and other junk not related to the core of the legislation.
There is no doubt in my mind that the 2011 -2012 congress will be challenging & interesting. Will the conservatives manage to get our country back on the track of doing government right? I hope so, but only time will tell.
We have only just begun . . . .

The newspaper dutifully went out and got quotes from Democrats concerned about the coming Republican horde... One of them really stood out.
"If Republicans repeal health care, I'll have no chance of having health care," said Amanda Lawrence, 40, who lives in northern Racine. "I cannot afford it."
She works two jobs as a sales representative and a massage therapist. She also cleans in the summer. But with two teenagers, she cannot afford the extra cost of insurance, she said.
I hate to break it to Amanda but since the newspaper didn't someone has to. Obamacare is not going to provide you with insurance. Obamacare is going to mandate that you buy insurance. Obamacare will also make that insurance more expensive than it is now. In fact if you don't buy that more expensive insurance that you can not afford Obamacare will fine you. If you can not afford to pay that fine, Obamacare will throw you in jail.
But you just go ahead and keep voting for those Democrats....
