Obama said to me, “I bowl like a retard”

March 21, 2009

“If you say things like that on Leno, what do you say at home?”

That was the question posed by Hannah Jacobs, an advocate for those with special needs, on the Fox News channel during the 7-8 AM hour on March 21.

“What was he thinking?”

“He was saying, ‘I bowl like a retard,'” Jacobs said.

The reason we have so called “political corerctness” is because pwople want to point out that sometimes what you think and say is who you are: which may cause others some problems.

President Obama didn’t just make a funny joke or a gaffe on Obama the other night: he offended a lot of people who think he also revealed to us who he really is.

“He hurt a lot of American families and a lot of good people,” a reader emailed to us.

We are sure as hell that if Joe Biden said some racial slur, there would be a huge public outcry….

Just a thought…..
“This was a degrading remark about our world’s most precious and unique people, coming from the most powerful position in the world,” Sarah Palin said in a statement released Friday.
.
“These athletes overcome more challenges, discrimination and adversity than most of us ever will. By the way, these athletes can outperform many of us and we should be proud of them. I hope President Obama’s comments do not reflect how he truly feels about the special needs community.”

Palin’s son, Trig, has Down Syndrome.

America’s Future? Grim Reality Unless Major Changes Are Adopted

December 10, 2008

In the future, America will be more diverse, more open to gays and more ploitically correct.

Americans will be even more caring for the human rights of their fellow man.

But Americans will generally be less wealthy, more stupid, more drug addicted and mezmerized by the future of the Internet and “Dancing With The Stars.”

Can another conclusion be reached?

America has lost or given away its industrial prowess.  Even the “Big 3” auto companies are on the public dole.

Drug and alcohol abuse and addiction are up.  And if you go to any hospital for “care,” you’ll end up loaded with drugs.

Americans are working harder, playing less and earning less for more than ever before.

And our schools are failing miserably.

America still has massive military might: but many lawmakers want to give this away and spend the money on “other priorities.”

In the future America, food security may be an issue, we could run out of water, and our health care system may collapse.

I didn’t make all this up: I am just good at reading the tea leaves (and the headlines).

Barack Obama has a full plate.  And so do parents, lawmakers, teachers and business executives: if we want to see a brighter future for our grandchildren.
