AMERICAN Gifts For Christmas!

I know it’s not possible to buy American every time we buy something, BUT if we all try to do a better job at picking AMERICAN over CHINA products, it WILL help in returning more of the unemployed back to work……..Papa Mike

Thanks Kim for passing this along!

Here is a great idea to help American business WITHOUT government help!   We can all do these things for Christmas AND help our neighbors stay in business at the same time.

As the holidays approach, the giant Asian factories are kicking into high gear to provide Americans with monstrous piles of cheaply produced goods — merchandise that has been produced at the expense of American labor. This year will be different. This year Americans will give the gift of genuine concern for other Americans. There is no longer an excuse that, at gift giving time, nothing can be found that is produced by American hands. Yes there is!

It’s time to think outside the box, people. Who says a gift needs to fit in a shirt box, wrapped in Chinese produced wrapping paper?
1- Everyone — yes EVERYONE gets their hair cut. How about gift certificates from your local American hair salon or barber?

2- Gym membership? It’s appropriate for all ages who are thinking about some health improvement.

3- Who wouldn’t appreciate getting their car detailed? Small, American owned detail shops and car washes would love to sell you a gift certificate or a book of gift certificates.

4- Are you one of those extravagant givers who think nothing of plunking down the Benjamin?s on a Chinese made flat-screen? Perhaps that grateful gift receiver would like his driveway sealed, or lawn mowed for the summer, or driveway plowed all winter, or games at the local golf course.

5- There are a bazillion owner-run restaurants — all offering gift certificates.
6- And, if your intended isn’t the fancy eatery sort, what about a half dozen breakfasts at the local breakfast joint. Remember, folks this isn’t about big National chains — this is about supporting your home town Americans with their financial lives on the line to keep their doors open.

7- How many people couldn’t use an oil change for their car, truck or motorcycle, done at a shop run by the American working guy?

8- Thinking about a heartfelt gift for mom? Mom would LOVE the services of a local cleaning lady for a day.

9- My computer could use a tune-up, and I KNOW I can find some young guy who is struggling to get his repair business up and running.

10- OK, you were looking for something more personal.  Local crafts people spin their own wool and knit them into scarves. They make jewelry, and pottery and beautiful wooden boxes.

11- Plan your holiday outings at local, owner operated restaurants and leave your server a nice tip. And, how about going out to see a play or ballet at your hometown theatre.

12- Musicians need love too, so find a venue showcasing local bands.

Honestly, people, do you REALLY need to buy another ten thousand Chinese lights for the house? When you buy a five dollar string of light, about fifty cents stays in the community. If you have those kinds of bucks to burn, leave the mailman, trash guy or babysitter a nice BIG tip.

You see, Christmas is no longer about draining American pockets so that China can build another glittering city.  Christmas is now about caring about US, encouraging American small businesses to keep plugging away to follow their dreams.  And, when we care about other Americans, we care about our communities, and the benefits come back to us in ways we couldn’t imagine.
MAKE THIS the new American Christmas tradition.

Forward this to everyone on your mailing list — post it to discussion groups — throw up a post on Craigslist in the Rants and Raves section in your city — send it to the editor of your local paper and radio stations, and TV news departments.  This is a revolution of caring about each other, and isn’t that what Christmas is about?

Buy American whenever possible
keep our dollar$ in the U. S.

AN ACTUAL CRAIG’S LIST PERSONALS AD

To the Guy Who Tried to Mug Me in Downtown Savannah night before last.
Date: 2010-09-27, 1:43 a.m. E.S.T.

I was the guy wearing the black Burberry jacket that you demanded that I hand over, shortly after you pulled the knife on me and my girlfriend, threatening our lives. You also asked for my girlfriend’s purse and earrings. I can only hope that you somehow come across this rather important message.
First, I’d like to apologize for your embarrassment; I didn’t expect you to actually crap in your pants when I drew my pistol after you took my jacket..

The evening was not that cold, and I was wearing the jacket for a reason.. my girlfriend was happy that I just returned safely from my 2nd tour as a Combat Marine in Afghanistan .. She had just bought me that Kimber Custom Model 1911 .45 ACP pistol for my birthday, and we had picked up a shoulder holster for it that very evening. Obviously you agree that it is a very intimidating weapon when pointed at your head … isn’t it?!
I know it probably wasn’t fun walking back to wherever you’d come from with crap in your pants. I’m sure it was even worse walking bare-footed since I made you leave your shoes, cell phone, and wallet with me. [That prevented you from calling or running to your buddies to come help mug us again].
After I called your mother or “Momma” as you had her listed in your cell, I explained the entire episode of what you’d done. Then I went and filled up my gas tank as well as those of four other people in the gas station, — on your credit card. The guy with the big motor home took 153 gallons and was extremely grateful!
I gave your shoes to a homeless guy outside Vinnie Van Go Go’s, along with all the cash in your wallet. [That made his day!]

I then threw your wallet into the big pink “pimp mobile” that was parked at the curb ….. after I broke the windshield and side window and keyed the entire driver’s side of the car.
Earlier, I managed to get in two threatening phone calls to the DA’s office and one to the FBI, while mentioning President Obama as my possible target.
The FBI guy seemed really intense and we had a nice long chat (I guess while he traced your number etc.).

;In a way, perhaps I should apologize for not killing you … but I feel this type of retribution is a far more appropriate punishment for your threatened crime. I wish you well as you try to sort through some of these rather immediate pressing issues, and can only hope that you have the opportunity to reflect upon, and perhaps reconsider, the career path you’ve chosen to pursue in life.. Remember, next time you might not be so lucky. Have a good day!
Thoughtfully yours, Semper Fi!
Alex

 

GREAT one Denise!

AND STILL THE STUPID AMERICAN JEWS WILL VOTE FOR THIS SCOAMF (Stuttering Clusterf#*k of a Miserable Failure)

Picture stolen and used by PM and NOT the author of the article…..

How will Obummer try to lie his way out of this? Prior to the Obama administration Israel and the U.S. have ALWAYS been a very strong allies and for our President to listen to the French President  say things disrespectful about Netanyahu and then top it by saying, ” “You’re fed up with him, but I have to deal with him every day!” is SICK and they BOTH should publicly apologize……Papa Mike

Here’s Obama and Sarkozy whining about Benjamin Netanyahu.
In a “faux pas” for the ages, President Barack Obama conducted what he assumed was a private conversation about Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu with French President Nicolas Sarkozy after the G20 summit on Thursday. The only problem, however, was that the microphones the two men were wearing from their earlier press conference, had not in fact been turned off. What ensued was a major public embarrassment after both Obama and the French PM disparaged Netanyahu, saying they cannot “stand” dealing with him.
According to a Monday report in the French website “Arret sur Images,” Sarkozy told Obama, “I cannot stand him [Netanyahu]. He is a liar.” Rather than exercising diplomacy, however, Obama hopped on the bash-wagon, reportedly telling Sarkozy: “You’re fed up with him, but I have to deal with him every day!”
Even more telling, and furthering the truth about how the Kept-Whores are both pro-Obama and anti-Israel, the media decided not to report on this right away:
The conversation apparently began with President Obama criticizing Sarkozy for not having warned him that France would be voting in favor of the Palestinian membership bid in UNESCO despite Washington’s strong objection to the move.
The communication faux pas went unnoticed for several minutes, during which the conversation between the two heads of state – which quickly reverted to other matters – was all but open to members the press, who were still in possession of headsets provided by the Elysée for the sake of simultaneous translation during the G20 press conference.

The surprising lack of coverage may be explained by a report alleging that reporters present at the event were requested to sign an agreement to keep mum on the subject of the embarrassing comments.
According to Ynet, a member of the media confirmed Monday that “there were discussions between journalists and they agreed not to publish the comments due to the sensitivity of the issue.”
That explains why the world has not heard about the incident until now. Even more troubling, is the fact that journalists are meant to expose the truth, not hide it.

WHERE ARE A COUPLE OF DAISY CUTTERS WHEN YOU NEED THEM?

Tens of thousands of goat-fornicating, camel fellating, ass-in-the-air-5-times-a-day worshippers of the child molesting, woman abusing false prophet, “Mo’ham, Ed!” clogged Russia’s streets to show how pious they are.

Tens of thousands of Muslim men knelt shoulder-to-shoulder in prayer on the freezing streets of Moscow on Sunday to celebrate the religious holiday of Eid al-Adha.
Estimates of the number of Muslims living or working in the Russian capital run from 2 million to as high as 5 million, but the city has few mosques.
Police said 170,000 people celebrated the holiday in Moscow, including 80,000 who gathered on the street outside what was once the main mosque. The 100-year-old pastel green Cathedral Mosque was torn down in September and a new mosque being built next to it is still under construction.
Many of those who braved temperatures of minus 8 degrees Celsius (18 degrees Fahrenheit) to pray on Sunday morning were migrant workers from countries in Central Asia that were once part of the Soviet Union.
Meanwhile, the Russians themselves are none too pleased with all this happy horseshit and are raising the spectre of Nazis over Muslim migrants:

Bombshell Herman Cain Allegation

It’s all over for Herman Cain. Another woman has come forward with a sexual harassment allegation. This time the harassment was recent, and the victim is willing to give her name: Sunny of Sunny TV.

Given that this is the most specific and credible accusation to be leveled at Cain yet, the media ought to go to town with it.

Obama NEVER Caled the St. Louis Cardinals After Their World Series Win!

“That’s a good point, I hadn’t really even thought about that,” replied a surprised-sounding La Russa. “As we were getting into the World Series we had a call from the White House to make sure they had the correct number for my office.”
It wouldn’t be because Tony La Russa is a Tea Party backer and a supporter of Arizona’s immigration law, would it?
While we try to figure out why Obama hasn’t called, let’s watch Tony La Russa present Albert Pujols with the “Hope Award” at Glenn Beck’s “Restoring Honor” gathering, last summer.

LET THIS BE A LESSON TO THOSE WHO BEND OVER FOR “ISLAMISTS”

This story is primarily about a man who held off a bunch of stinky hippies with a shotgun but then it goes on to describe who others are trying to appease the protesters.
Case in point: Men’s Wearhouse.

 

When Men’s Wearhouse touted their “solidarity” with the #OWS assholes, maybe they thought that be kowtowing to them and showing them favor they’d be spared.
They weren’t as this picture attests.

On a side note, guess what happened to at least one business, Men’s Wearhouse, that pledged its support for the “99%?”
It didn’t escape destruction either.
“Windows at the Men’s Wearhouse, which closed Wednesday and put up signs of support, were shattered,”
So let that be an object lesson for the panty-waisted bleeding heart pussy-assed liberals who think we should all get along and bow to Islamists: they will be the first ones whose heads are chopped off.

Vermin is as vermin does.

56 Years Ago ( 1955 )

It’s too bad things are so tough
nowadays.  I see where a few married women are having to work to make ends meet.

The fast food restaurant is  
convenient for a quick meal, but I seriously doubt they will ever catch on.

If they think I’ll pay 30 cents for a haircut, forget it.

Idiot Mayor Of Oakland California!

The Oakland Police Officer’s Association wrote this open letter to the citizens of Oakland.

1 November 2011 – Oakland, Ca.
We represent the 645 police officers who work hard every day to protect the citizens of Oakland. We, too, are the 99% fighting for better working conditions, fair treatment and the ability to provide a living for our children and families. We are severely understaffed with many City beats remaining unprotected by police during the day and evening hours.

As your police officers, we are confused.

On Tuesday, October 25th, we were ordered by Mayor Quan to clear out the encampments at Frank Ogawa Plaza and to keep protesters out of the Plaza. We performed the job that the Mayor’s Administration asked us to do, being fully aware that past protests in Oakland have resulted in rioting, violence and destruction of property.

Then, on Wednesday, October 26th, the Mayor allowed protesters back in – to camp out at the very place they were evacuated from the day before.

To add to the confusion, the Administration issued a memo on Friday, October 28th to all City workers in support of the “Stop Work” strike scheduled for Wednesday, giving all employees, except for police officers, permission to take the day off.

That’s hundreds of City workers encouraged to take off work to participate in the protest against “the establishment.”

But aren’t the Mayor and her Administration part of the establishment they are paying City employees to protest? Is it the City’s intention to have City employees on both sides of a skirmish line?

It is all very confusing to us.

Meanwhile, a message has been sent to all police officers: Everyone, including those who have the day off, must show up for work on Wednesday. This is also being paid for by Oakland taxpayers. Last week’s events alone cost Oakland taxpayers over $1 million.

Here’s the mayor.

Sorry cops. This is what happens when clueless liberals are running the show. I also think it was funny that George Zimmer, who supports these OWS idiots, had one of his store’s windows bashed in. It even had a sigh on it that said they supported the OWS protests. BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Guess what George, you rat bastard commie, I’ll never buy any clothes from you. I guarantee it.

Dear Oakland residents: You are idiots. You are also assholes for electing an idiot like Mayor Quan

Yup. They’re just like the tea party..

I say call in the ‘National Guard’ and give these punks 10 minutes to disperse and NEVER gather as a crowd again. The ‘Framers’ of our Constitution did NOT intend Freedom Of Speech to look anything like what these ass-holes are doing across our nation and abroad daily. Then for our President and most Democrats to originally condone what these idiots were doing need to now stand up and DENOUNCE their actions immediately!….PM

Occupy Wall Street Protester & Kitchen Helper Arrested For Alleged Rape and Sexual Assault

It was a busy day for police at the Occupy Wall Street squatters camp.
Several far left protesters were arrested at the Goldman Sachs headquarters in New York City.
And, one protester was arrested for rape and sexual assault at the camp.

Occupy Wall Street Protester Tonye Iketubosin or “Tonye Parks” was arrested by New York City police after he allegedly raped one protester and sexually assaulted another.
The Huffington Post reported:

A 26-year old man from Crown Heights was arrested on Tuesday for charges of sexual assault including allegedly raping a fellow Occupy Wall Street protestor and groping another in separate incidents.

According to police officials, Tonye Iketubosin allegedly raped an 18-year old woman from Massachusetts who took up Iketubosin’s offer to let her stay in his tent on Saturday, following an argument with a male friend whom she had originally been sharing her tent with.

Iketubosin is also being connected for allegedly sexually assaulting a 17-year old female after helping her set up a tent on October 24th. The Wall Street Journal writes:

Early the next morning, she went inside and found him there. She told police that he ignored her repeated requests to leave. Then he groped her until the pushed him away.

The Gothamist has more on the sexual predator.

Beau Sibbing, Wisconsin resident who has been working in the kitchen at Zuccotti Park for the past three weeks, tells us that Iketubosin was known as “Tonye Parks,” and came to work in the kitchen around two weeks ago. “He was a genuinely nice guy…he came to get shit done,” he said. Sibbing had heard rumors of the first assault on Friday, and said that Iketubosin “was adamant that it wasn’t him.”

After word had spread of the alleged assaults, Iketubosin was told not to come to kitchen meetings and to stay away from the park, “but he kept coming.” Sibbing said that around 9 p.m. last night “a whole bunch of people came and made him leave the park. Then the NYPD picked him up. I wasn’t sure if it was for his own safety or if he was being arrested.”

Texas Judge & Mother Caught on Video Beating Daughter ‘Needs Help’ AFTER PRISON!

 …….I spent most of my childhood experiencing this same SICK behavior from my father and to say it was normal punishment back in the 50’s & 60’s…… your as sick as the people in this video doing the beating!…..I have forgiven both of my parents because this is what God has asked us to do, BUT I will never, ever forget each and every time he told me to go to my room,”I will get my belt and be in there shortly”. PLEASE, if anyone is experiencing this kind of SICK, SICK behavior you need to contact the police immediately. There is NOTHING you could do that would justify this kind of terrible behavior ….PM


Hillary Adams says that until last week, only a couple of close friends knew about the savage beating she received seven years ago from her father, a Texas judge who handles child abuse cases.
Now the beating is on display to the world on YouTube thanks to a secret video she made, and her father, Aransas County Court-at-Law Judge William Adams, is the subject of a police investigation.
Hillary Adams, 23, says the outpouring of support and encouragement she’s received since posting the 2004 video online last week is tempered by the sadness that it’s her father lashing her 17 times with a belt and threatening to beat her “into submission.” The 8-minute video had been watched nearly 2 million times by Thursday morning.

Nov. 2: Hillary Adams, daughter of Aransas County Court-at-Law Judge William Adams, walks outside her mother’s home in Portland, Texas.

In this March 17, 2005, photo Hillary Adams, the daughter of Aransas County Court-at-Law Judge William Adams, practices the piano at her home in Rockport, Texas

“I’m experiencing some regret because I just pulled the covers off my own father’s misbehavior after so many people thought he was such a good person. … But so many people are also telling me I did the right thing,” she told The Associated Press outside her mother’s home in the Gulf Coast town of Portland, near Corpus Christi.

“He’s supposed to be a judge who exercises fit judgment,” she said.”I cannot stress enough — I cannot repeat myself enough, that he just needs help.”

And she said the videoed attack was not a one-off. “It did happen regularly for a period of time,” she told NBC’s “Today” show on Thursday.

This Is Why We Can NOT Trust Muslims!

Read these poll results from Canada.

THIRTY FIVE PERCENT would not repudiate al Qaida!!!! That means that for every three Canadian Muslim you find, 1 of them wants to kill you. The other two woiuld probably join in just to save their own asses.

A newly released survey suggests a large number of Muslims living in Canada will not disown Al-Qaida.

The study, conducted by the MacDonald Laurier Institute, found 65% of Muslims questioned said they would “repudiate absolutely” the terrorist organization, while 35% would not do so.
“From a security perspective, it is difficult to know if a 65% rate of repudiation (of Al-Qaida) is re-assuring or a 35% failure to repudiate troubling,” wrote study authors Christian Leuprecht, associate professor of the Royal Military College of Canada and Conrad Winn, Carleton University professor and president of COMPAS, a public opinion research firm.

“The most radical political views tended to be expressed by relatively secular people, often equipped with higher education in the social sciences, while devout Muslims were sometimes the most articulate advocates for Canada and democracy.” According to the Ottawa based think tank, only a small minority of Muslim newcomers to Canada reject Hamas, Hezbollah, or the Iranian regime.

The survey, which was released Tuesday, found 62% wanted some form of Shariah law in Canada, 15% of them saying it should be mandatory for all Muslims.

The Grey-Haired Brigade

They like to refer to us as senior citizens, old fogies, geezers, and in some cases dinosaurs.

Some of us are “baby boomers” getting ready to retire. Others have been retired for some time.

We walk a little slower these days and our eyes and hearing are not what they once were.

We have worked hard, raised our children, worshipped our God and grown old together. Yes, we are the ones some refer to as being over the hill and that is probably true.

But before writing us off completely, there are a few things that need to be taken into consideration.

In school we studied English, history, math, and science which enabled us to lead America into the technological age.

Most of us remember what outhouses were, many of us with firsthand experience.

We remember the days of telephone party-lines, ten cent gasoline, and milk and ice being delivered to our homes. For those of you who don’t know what an icebox is, today they are electric and referred to as refrigerators.

A few even remember when cars were started with a crank.

Yes, we lived those days. We are probably considered old fashioned and out-dated by many.

But there are a few things you need to remember before completely writing us off.

We won World War II and fought in Korea and Vietnam.

We can quote the Pledge of Allegiance, and know where to place our hand while doing so.

We wore the uniform of our country with pride and lost many friends on the battlefield.

We didn’t fight for the Socialist States of America; we fought for the “land of the free and home of the brave.”

We wore different uniforms but carried the same flag.

We know the words to the Star Spangle Banner and America the Beautiful by heart and you may even see some tears running down our cheeks as we sing.

We have lived what many of you have only read about in history books and we feel no obligation to apologize to anyone for America.

Yes, we are old and slow these days, but rest assured, we have at least one good fight left in us.

We have loved this country, fought for it, and died for it, and now we are going to save it. It is our country and nobody is going to take it away from us.

We took oaths to defend America against all enemies, foreign and domestic, and that is an oath we plan to keep.

There are those who want to destroy this land we love, but, like our founders, there is no way we are going to remain silent.

It was the young people of this nation who elected Obama and the Democratic congress. You fell for the “Hope and Change” which in reality was nothing but “Hype and Lies.”

You have tasted socialism and seen evil face to face, and have found you don’t like it after all.

You make a lot of noise but most are too interested in their careers and “climbing the social ladder” to be involved in such mundane things as patriotism and voting.

It appears that we care more about our grandchildren than some care about their children.

Many of those who fell for the “Great Lie” in 2008 are now having buyer’s remorse. With all the education we gave you, you didn’t have sense enough to see through the lies and instead drank the kool-aid.

Now you’re paying the price and complaining about it.

No jobs, lost mortgages, higher taxes, and less freedom. This is what you voted for and this is what you got. We entrusted you with the Torch of Liberty and you traded it for a paycheck and a fancy house.

Well, don’t worry youngsters, the Grey Haired Brigade is here, and in a few days we are going to take back our nation.

We may drive a little slower than you would like but we get where we’re going, and in November we’re going to the polls by the millions.

This land does not belong to Hussein Obama or Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid. It belongs to We the People, and We the People plan to reclaim our land and our freedom. We hope this time you will do a better job of preserving it and passing it along to our grandchildren.

So the next time you have the chance to say the Pledge of Allegiance, stand up, put your hand over your heart, honor our country, and thank God for the Old Geezers of the Grey-Haired Brigade.
