I Am an American

I am an American!
(D. Ault)

I owe you no apologies nor will I accept
those apologies made for me by others.
If you dislike me -- you dislike me not for what I
am but for what you are not. By my own sweat,
I have created a lifestyle which I desire for all men.
To the world I have shared my wealth and given my
blood, not because of obligation -- but by my own
free will. I have fed the hungry of the world. Many
bit my hand; I used the other hand.
I defeated my enemies in battle, then
pulled them up from the ashes of defeat. Once strong, they
again attacked; I turned the other cheek. Though
I am strong, I have never used my strength to rule
others. But do not misjudge me, I will not allow the
fear of my own strength to become my weakness.
If you wish to rise, I will give you a helping hand.
But by the grace of God, and I'll first be damned,
If I'll let you drag me down so that we may be equal.

Sorry if this has been posted previously. Love it.

It's 106 miles to Chicago, we got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark, and we're wearing sunglasses

Obama is not

He talks to terrorist networks before American networks and makes our nation look stupid with cheap gifts and dumbass props when dealing with world leaders. I won't even rehash the ecnomy or Leno. This guy is making us look weak. There is a question as to whether it is better to be feared or loved, and under Obama it will be neither. At least under Bush, people knew we didn't have any bombs or missiles nearing their expiration date. Obama is worthless.

Jimmy Carter, that is... I suspect that Obamalama will find himself in a similar situation that Carter did in 1979... fast forward 444 days when Iran KNEW Ronald Wilson Reagan was gonna be the Commander in Chief and they released the hostages minutes after he was sworn in... MINUTES! Carter was a puss, and the Iranians knew that! Reagan didn't plan on having a "dialogue" with the Iranian THUGS who were holding our people hostage, and they knew that, too.

From November 1979, to January 1981, we were like the proverbial deer in the headlights, frozen in our tracks, because we lacked the proper leadership to take control of the situation and deal with our adversaries. I say we, but I really mean our Secretary of State(?).

So who do we have now, to tell those adversaries to "watch out"? Hillary?
Yeah, that'll have our enemies shaking in their shoes... Man! I just wanna go to bed and wake up in the end of January, 2013!

Not me

I want to be wide awake for what is to come. We are going to observing history or becoming part of it. Some of us may make it into the future history books as the new American Patriots that stood up and fought for our Constitution and told the tyrants what their jobs truly are. To see all this will be a eye opening event that I would never want to sleep threw.
To have our children to able to tell their children that their family members are the reason they are still free would be the ultimate in leaving an impression in their minds.

“If ever time should come,when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in government, our country will stand in need of it's experienced Patriots to prevent it's ruin."Samuel Adams
