Holy Cow!

we kept thinking we had all this time before we moved into the new house and it was really dragging. It seemed like for awhile there we were getting ahead of ourselves.Another words, what’s the big rush..Now it’s HOLY COW! We only have 3 days.My husband and i only have a few things in common and one you don’t want to have in common.We are professional PROCRASTINATORS.

Our favorite word: manana

I am hoping upon hope we do not have a blizzard on Friday. IF that’s the case I’ll try to persuade him to wait until Saturday.Men can be  stubborn.It may be a problem.

A little nervous. Love the neighborhood we live in here.It’s been very nice.Have no idea what it’s going to be like where we’re going.Think I’m going to cry.We had a terrific landlord too. We may have been renting but it felt like home here from day one.

Well,it’s time to turn out the lights again,put the head back for awhile then get some zzz’s.

Image Night everyone.

A Woman Can Change Her Mind,Right?

Politics aren’t everything. True. On the other hand,ELECTIONS HAVE CONSEQUENCES and who we vote for matters.

We haven’t had the mid terms in 2014 yet so I’ve decided to lay back for awhile and blog about principles rather than a potential candidate for 2016. We have to get a conservative Senate and keep the House.Goal no 1. Then we can take a look at potentials for 2016.We’ve got 1 disadvantage. The Democrats are already doing their coronation and raising tons of money.

We may have a flooded field again on the Republican side.If you get too many it’s not good.

I have 2 people i would definitely vote for.Narrowed it down.

There’s one i would definitely not vote for and i’ve mentioned him plenty of times. Chris Christie. It has NOTHING to do with bridge gate. I had decided he was off my list a long time ago. Nuff said.I don’t like to cut  him down too much. We have this really awful President and we are probably looking at a Hillary run in 2016. I’m not going to spend anymore time complaining about Christie. Done,did,over.

The two people i would DEFINITELY vote for:

TOP OF THE LIST,ALLEN WEST!

Here’s his bio and there’s nobody that even comes close to his background:

Lieutenant Colonel Allen West has lived his life in service to America. In 2004, when it was time to retire from more than twenty years of service in the US Army, Col. West brought his wife and two young daughters to Broward County, Florida, where he taught high school for a year. Colonel West then returned to Afghanistan as an advisor to the Afghan army, an assignment that he finishes in November 2007.

Born and raised in Atlanta, Col. West received BS (UT) and MS degrees in political science (KSU). He also holds a Master of Military Arts and Sciences from the US Army Command and General Staff Officer College in political theory and military history and operations.

“Education is the great equalizer,” he says. “With a good education, any child in America can live his dream.”

Colonel West knows that for our children to live their dreams, they need to be safe. He has faced down the world’s terrorists: in Operation Desert Storm, in Operation Iraqi Freedom, where he was battalion commander for the Army’s 4th Infantry Division, and in Afghanistan, where he trains Afghan officers to take on the responsibility of securing their own country.

In his Army career, Col. West has been honored many times, including a Bronze Star, three Meritorious Service Medals, three Army Commendation Medals (one with Valor), and a Valorous Unit Award. He received his valor award as a Captain in Desert Shield/Storm, was the US Army ROTC instructor of the year in 1993, and was a Distinguished Honor Graduate III Corps at Fort Hood, Texas Air Assault School.

Excellence is a West family tradition. His lovely wife, Angela, holds an MBA and PhD. and works as a financial planner. His daughter, Aubrey, 15, was just accepted into Cambridge academic program at Ft Lauderdale HS and his daughter, Austen, 11, is a budding young pianist.

I opened a forum supporting Lt Col West but we can also focus on 2014 there.
The 2nd person would be Gov Romney IF he were to run again and I wonder about that.Would he? He should have won the last time.

The truth is I’m torn between the 2 but if Romney were dead set against another run…it would have to be West.Thankfully we have time to sort this out and 2014 is probably even more important now than ever. Obama has to be stopped.In order for the next Rep candidate to have a shot at winning the WH, getting the Congress FIRST would be helpful.

I think very highly of West.There isn’t a background that’s comparable. I expect the same old names to get thrown out there in the meantime.I would love to see West skyrocket out of nowhere. A candidate no one was expecting.We’ll see if he even wants to run.

Other than those 2 I’m not too excited about anyone.
Background matters,character matters,being able to win matters.We’ll see.
What’s more important right now is the MESSAGE and TACTICS of the Republican party.  Hopefully Allen West will adopt the following:
  • 1. I give my pledge to be honest with the American people. Whether it’s good news or bad news. They’re adults. They can handle. I will not try to window dress. It’s dishonest.
  • 2. I will not denigrate our military. They are  not a political body.They are a military body trained to fight and win wars. They will have my full support,especially our veterans.
  • 3. When it comes to foreign policy I will make the tough decisions but I will be sure to talk to the American people and be clear about my intentions. Whether it’s an ally or an enemy they will know that i say what i mean and mean what i say.PERIOD.
  • 4.Government is too big,too incompetent and too powerful.The bigger it gets,the more power it has,the less it benefits the American people. I will do my utmost best with the help of the American people to get it sized down as much as possible for the time I have in office.  I will also hold incompetent and dishonest people accountable.
  • 5. I can’t promise the moon but I can promise my best.
  • 6. I am NOT waging a war on anyone. I intend to use the office to wage a battle on BEHALF of the American people and the principles our country stands for; not against the American people or the values we cherish.
  • 7. I will work across the aisle by trying to build relationships not make enemies.I cannot guarantee we will always agree but i can guarantee I will never remind them[of] who won.
  • 8. I will not waste time blaming my predecessor.
  • 9. I will get the best small/big business people to advise me on  economics;not technocrats,bureaucrats or ideologues. I want input from the folks who have actually created jobs.We don’t need crony capitalism. We need people who know how to put people to work and get the economy on track.
I think i would leave it at that. The American people need to know that  the next candidate is not going to dupe them then look them in the eye and lie.If we’d get that far we’d be off to a good start.
The American people are going to have to do their homework and pay attention this time. And they are going to have to vote! I hope we learned something after the last one.It’s our country. There’s too much at stake to sit home and pitch a fit.
Young people need to vote. They have a lot at stake.What happens now may not mean much NOW but it does affect their future.PLEASE look at backgrounds. We don’t vote for someone because they’re cool or hip. It’s ok to vote for someone because they’re likeable but it can’t be just because they’re likeable.
Nuff said. That’s what I hope the candidate will put out there. I think the things Americans value most are honesty,integrity and accountability. If things go south i think  we’re  willing to give any President a chance as long as the person doesn’t try to paint a rosy picture to cover their butts or blame someone else.
Whoever it is they’re going to be up against the media campaigning for Hillary[ or whoever the Democrat is.]They can’t play defense and they have to play smart. They will be demonized as soon as the Democrats and the media get wind of who stands a chance.
We don’t have real journalists anymore. It may as well be Venezuela, except in this case  it’s  a bunch of willing  people who do the bidding without the threat.
REMEMBER?

yes yes yes

War on Women,Crock of Crap

Oh yes,the Democratic party used that in the Romney-Obama race.You can be sure it will come in real handy for their nominee Hillary Clinton.It’s going to be her people because it will be historic.It will be her because her husband is still very popular. It will be her because they will use her gender to make sure she’s not attacked. The same way they did with Obama.If you disagree with Obama you are a racist. It works for gender too.Except for Sarah Palin-she’s a radical but that’s their other tactic.

Here’s why it’s a CROCK OF CRAP.

Qualifier first. I AM A WOMAN(hear me roar?)

The Democrats claimed Mitt Romney was going to take away women’s contraception.

Hello……how?
Was this a huge issue to begin with? I could have sworn Americans were out of work,the economy was in a deep recession and people on Main Street couldn’t make ends meet.
At least i didn’t think it was a huge issue. Evidently women were very concerned because they voted overwhelmingly for Obama. WHEW. Nobody can get a job but we don’t have to worry about that contraception anymore.
There is no WAR ON WOMEN people. Romney hardly mentioned contraception, if he mentioned it at all. Most of his focus was on economic policy. It was the Democrats who brought out their champion Sandra Fluke to carry the narrative.Remember Ms Fluke.She actually went up in front of Congress to testify about the matter.I’m still floored.
fluke
As for the issue re contraception and the government forcing an agenda,let’s see what the Obama administration is up to.
The HHS mandate is trying to force religious institutions,in particular Catholic institutions,to violate their freedom of conscience and provide insurance for contraception and abortion.
What we say as Catholics-and Romney probably would agree-is that no one is going to take away anyone’s ability to get contraception either individually or through their insurance but simply THEY(religious institutions that conscientiously object) are not going to provide it.In my mind the taxpayers shouldn’t have to fund contraception or abortion either. That’s not a war.That’s common sense.
It doesn’t take away a woman’s ability to get contraceptives one iota. The way the Dems were painting Romney you could almost picture him with a SWAT team invading your local pharmacy.
It’s a bit like how they used to scare my parents to death that those nasty Republicans were going to take away their Social Security.I got tired of it. My parents had enough to deal with. The Republicans never took it away and as soon as the elections were over the topic got dropped anyway. Sure enough though, every time the elections came around, they got the letters AGAIN.
Don’t believe the Democrats were attacking Romney on the issue. How’s this for an ad from Planned Parenthood:
t1larg.planned-parenthood-romney-ad.t1larg
Silliness. Who on earth would fall for that?!

Truth: OBAMA IS WAGING A WAR ON AMERICANS and you can be sure we’re going to back that up in the blog.It won’t be tonight but you can bet your sweet bippy we’re going to get to it.
#WARONAMERICANS How’s that for a hash tag?
