I know many of these stories are serious, but the headlines removed the restrain from my brain and we get headline humor. These are the actual headlines as I found on-line. When you click on the headline you will be taken to the original story which more often than not has nothing to do with my vision of the headline.
While many of us conservatives are not the least bit surprised that Democrat leaders don’t understand the hopes, fears, desires, expectations we have for our country, I have been more than a little surprised at the blindness of so many Republicrats to the same issues. As a registered Republican (though not for long – can you say independent) I was rather discouraged when our presidential nominee was ordained long before the primary in my state. Even more perplexing was the fact that Democrat voters and pundits had more say in that selection than millions of registered Republicans. The turnout in the 2008 election is a testament to the disgust many of us felt, though I swallowed and voted for Palin/McCain.

The title of this piece is sort of a quote from a speech that President Obama gave to the Turkish legislature in April 2009. His actual words were; “The United States is not, and will never be, at war with Islam.” Many of his and his administrations actions certainly bear out his words. In light of the recent events at Fort Hood and his response to that tragedy, I started to look back at his words and more importantly his actions. I should let you know that by “his actions” I do mean things that he has done and that members of his administration have done.
Betsy McCaughey is the former lieutenant governor from New York. It is unclear how a Pittsburgher ended up in New York, but we will forgive her as she has become one of the most articulate voices for sanity in the health care debate. In a nutshell, she has been speaking against the massive overhaul proposed by the Obama Administration. She has had the nerve to use facts and figures to dispute claims by Pelosi, Reid, and Obama to scare folks into supporting their efforts. With all of their efforts, however, Rasmussen reports that 54 percent of Americans oppose the new plan (44% strongly opposed) while 42 percent (down from 45%) support the plan (only 23% strongly support).
