Today, 8:54 amLetter from family to Obama...

FULL LETTER FROM BILLY AND KAREN VAUGHN
After finally choosing to view the barbaric, on-camera beheading by ISIS of freelance war correspondent James Foley, I have been left with a level of rage known only to those of us who have sacrificed unspeakable offerings on the altar of world peace.
My offering was my only son � Aaron Carson Vaughn. Aaron was a member of SEAL Team VI. He was killed in action when a CH47D Chinook, carrying thirty Americans and eight Afghans was shot down in the Tangi River Valley of Afghanistan on Aug. 6, 2011.
endorse1Many times over the past three years, I have been asked what drove my son to choose his particular career. What made him want to be a Navy SEAL? My answer is simple.
Aaron Vaughn was a man who possessed the courage to acknowledge evil. And evil, once truly acknowledged, demands response. Perhaps this is why so few are willing to look it in the eye. It is much simpler � much safer � to look the other way.
That is, unless you are the leader of the Free World.
As Commander-in-Chief, your actions � or lack thereof � Mr. President, cost lives. As you bumble about in your golf cart, slapping on a happy face and fist-pounding your buddies, your cowardly lack of leadership has left a gaping hole � not only in America's security � but the security of the entire globe. Your message has come across loud and clear, sir: You are not up to this job. You know it. We know it. The world knows it.
Please vacate the people's house and allow a man or woman of courage and substance to seize the reigns of this out-of-control thug-fest and regain the balance we, America, have provided throughout our great history.
Thanks to your "leadership" from whatever multi-million dollar vacation you happen to be on at any given moment, the world is in chaos. What's been gained, you've lost. What's been lost, you've decimated. You've demolished our ability to hold the trust of allies. You've made a mockery of the title "President." And you've betrayed the nation for which my son and over 1.3 million others have sacrificed their very lives.
But this should come as no surprise, since your wife uttered a vile statement on Feb. 18, 2008, during the primary campaign � one that speaks volumes of your true convictions. "For the first time in my adult life, I am really proud of my country," she said.
I am sure my deceased son thanks you for that, Mrs. Obama. Oh, and you're welcome.
Never in my lifetime have I witnessed such despair and such growing fear that the world's last best hope, America, has finally been dismantled. Perhaps the better word is transformed � fundamentally transformed. Come to think of it, it's become difficult � if not impossible � to believe things haven't gone exactly as you planned, Mr. President.
Amazingly, in five short years, your administration has lurched from one disaster to another. You spearheaded the ambitious rush to end the wars in both Iraq and Afghanistan � with no plan on how to do so effectively. Also, the release of "the Taliban five" in exchange for one American � without consulting Congress � is also on your shoulders.
You have been at the helm during unprecedented national security leaks � including, but not limited to the outing of SEAL Team VI on the Bin laden raid, the outing of the Pakistani doctor who provided the intelligence for that raid, the outing of Afghanistan's CIA station chief, and the outing of your personal "kill list" to make you look tough. In addition, 75 percent of American deaths in Afghanistan and 83 percent of Americans-wounded-in-action have occurred on your watch, according to icasualties.org.
And now, we have this recent, heinous event: the beheading of an American citizen by a barbaric organization you foolishly referred to as "the JV team" in your statements to the New Yorker magazine in January.
You, sir, are the JV team. It's time for you to step down and allow a true leader to restore our honor and protect our sons and daughters.
America has always been exceptional. And she will be again. You, Mr. President, are a bump in our road

Yesterday, 6:53 pmA Canadian Top 10 List -- A MUST READ

A Canadian Top 10 List ----- A MUST READ

Canadian's Version of David Letterman's Top 10

Just makes you wanna shake your head in disbelief.

This is Canada's Top Ten List of America's Stupidity

Of course we look like idiots .... because we are.

Number 10 Only in America could politicians talk about the greed of the rich at a $35,000.00 per plate Obama campaign fund-raising event.

Number 9 Only in America ...could people claim that the government still discriminates against black Americans when they have a  black President, a black Attorney General and roughly 20% of the federal workforce is black while only 14% of the population is black 40+% of all federal entitlements goes to black Americans - 3X the rate that go to whites, 5X the rate that go to Hispanics!

Number 8  Only in America...could they have had the two people most responsible for our tax code, Timothy Geithner (the head of the Treasury Department) and Charles Rangel (who once ran the Ways and Means Committee), BOTH turn out to be tax cheats who are in favor of higher taxes.

Number 7 Only in America...can they have terrorists kill people in the name of Allah and have the media primarily react by fretting that Muslims might be harmed by the backlash.

Number 6 Only in America...would they make people who want to legally become American citizens wait for years in their home countries and pay tens of thousands of dollars for the privilege, while they discuss letting anyone who sneaks into the country illegally just 'magically'  become American citizens (probably should be number one).

Number 5  Only in America....could the people who believe in balancing the budget and sticking by the country's Constitution be thought of as  EXTREMIST'S.

Number 4 Only in America...could you need to present a driver's license to cash a check or buy alcohol, but not to vote.

Number 3  Only in America...could people demand the government investigate whether oil companies are gouging the public because the price of gas went up when the return on equity invested in a major U.S. Oil company(Marathon Oil) is less than half of a company making tennis shoes (Nike).

Number 2  Only in America... could you collect more tax dollars from the people than any nation in recorded history, still spend a Trillion dollars more than it has per year - for total spending of $7-Million PER MINUTE, and complain that it doesn't have nearly enough money.

And Number 1 Only in America...could the rich people- who pay 86% of all income taxes - be accused of not paying their "fair share" by people who don't pay any income taxes at all.

Krauthammer On Obama's Foreign Policy: 'The Strategy Is To Do Absolutely Nothing'

FoxNews ^ | August 28, 2014
Krauthammer On Obama's Foreign Policy: 'The Strategy Is To Do Absolutely Nothing' August 28 Charles Krauthammer ripped President Obama's foreign policy Thursday on "Special Report with Bret Baier," blasting the president for holding a news conference at which he said, "we don't have a strategy yet" for dealing with ISIS in Syria. "The president of the United States, in the middle of a real crisis, a few days after the beheading of an American...gets in front of the world and says, I don't have a strategy," the syndicated columnist and Fox News contributor said. "If that is true, don't say...

August 28, 2014, 7:31 pmYou are a racist...

'm Andrew Klavan and this is the Revolting Truth.

Some of you may have noticed that our country is sharply divided along political lines.  To those of you who haven't noticed:  our country is sharply divided along political lines.  Approximately thirty eight percent of Americans identify themselves as conservative, twenty three percent identify themselves as liberal, while the remaining thirty nine percent can't identify themselves and are waiting for a policeman to take them home.

Those who identify as conservative generally believe in limited government, low taxes and close adherence to the constitution.  Those who identify as liberal generally believe that if they had a hammer, they'd hammer out justice all over the land, but since they don't, they'll just have another latte and feel good about themselves.

Can we bring these two sides closer together without using rope and a nail gun or would using rope and a nail gun actually be kind of a good time?

We here at the Revolting Truth believe that better communication is the road to better understanding which is the path to better relations which is the freeway to better homes and gardens which is the last stop before Tomorrowland.

And that's why today we'd like to present the first installment of the Leftese Dictionary - a glossary of left wing terms and their meanings which will help right wingers understand what the people who don't know what they're talking about are talking about.

Let's begin with a term Right Wingers hear a lot when chatting with Left Wingers:  "You are racist!"  The phrase "You are a racist!" or "That's racist," is leftese for "I have no logical arguments."  As an example of how the term is used in conversation, let's say you point out that under President Obama's left wing policies, the percentage of African American families living in poverty has increased and black participation in the labor force has decreased while under right wing President Reagan black unemployment plummeted, and the income gap between blacks and whites narrowed. That's when a left winger might respond by employing the phrase, "You are racist."

Leftists have many different ways of saying "I have no logical argument," for the same reason Eskimos have many different words for snow.  Another way a leftist may concede that his point of view is nonsense is by saying "I am offended."  If, for instance, you point out that the poverty rate for women has increased under President Obama and that women's earnings relative to men have declined, making this a dark economic time for women, a leftist might reply, "You said the word dark.  You are racist.  I am offended."

One other way a leftist might have of saying, "I have no logical argument," is "the science is settled."  If you point out that there is exactly zero real evidence that human actions threaten to cause catastrophic climate change, a leftist will reply, "The science is settled."  When you ask him what precise scientific facts he is talking about, he is likely to say, "I am offended.  You are racist."

August 25, 2014, 11:23 amObama and race...

Tim Stanley writes for The Telegraph that the White House will not be the driver behind the type of meaningful change in how the US deals with racism, inequality and violence. He says President Barack Obama has not claimed a meaningful leadership role within the country's racial narrative.

"He was never going to be someone who would confront racism head on or seek a substantial redistribution of power and money of the variety that many civil rights leaders feel is necessary to help the poor," he writes.

August 22, 2014, 12:35 pmNever Question a Drunk...

Never question a drunk
I was shopping at the local supermarket where I selected:
A half-gallon of 2% milk
A carton of eggs
A quart of orange juice
A head of lettuce
A 2 lb. Can of coffee
A 1 lb. Package of bacon

As I was unloading my items on the conveyor belt to check out, a drunk standing behind me watched as I placed the items in front of the cashier. While the cashier was ringing up the purchases, the drunk calmly Stated, 'You must be single.'

I was a bit startled by this proclamation, but I was intrigued by the derelict's intuition, since I indeed had never found Mr. Right.

I looked at the six items on the belt and saw nothing particularly unusual about my selections that could have tipped off the drunk to my marital status..

Curiosity getting the better of me, I said , 'Yes you are correct. But how on earth did you know that?'

The drunk replied, 'Cause you're ugly.

Wow: Senior intelligence officer says mission to save James Foley failed because of Obama
8/21/2014, 8:29:24 PM � by Beave Meister � 57 replies
Young Conservatives ^ | 8/21/2014 | Joshua Riddle
Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer (Ret.) is a CIA-trained former senior intelligence officer and he says that the rescue operation for American journalist James Foley wasn't successful because President Obama "dragged his feet". "Thursday morning, Shaffer appeared on WMAL radio in Washington, D.C., to discuss the ISIS execution of American journalist James Foley earlier this week. He told me and co-host Brian Wilson that the recently revealed rescue attempt led by Special Forces earlier this summer failed because President Obama was slow to give the go-ahead: I'm hearing from my friends in the Pentagon, they are giving him every single option...

August 14, 2014, 11:20 amBest comeback line

Best comeback line

Police work can be entertaining as well as dangerous.    Recently, a female sheriff's deputy arrested Patrick Lawrence, a 22 year old white male, who was fornicating with a pumpkin in the middle of a field at night.

The next day, at the Gwinnett County (GA) courthouse, Lawrence was charged with lewd and lascivious behavior, public indecency and public intoxication.    The suspect explained that he was passing a pumpkin patch on his way home from a drinking session when he decided to stop.

'You know how a pumpkin is soft and squishy inside, and there was no one around for miles, or at least I thought there was no one around' he stated.    Lawrence went on to say that he pulled over to the side of the road, picked out a pumpkin that he felt was appropriate to his purpose, cut a hole in it, and proceeded to satisfy his pressing need.

'Guess I was really into it, y'know?' he commented with evident embarrassment.    In the process of doing the deed, Lawrence failed to notice an approaching sheriff's car and was unaware of his audience until Deputy Brenda Taylor approached him.

'It was an unusual situation, that's for sure,' said Deputy Taylor. 'I walked up to Lawrence and he's just humping away at this pumpkin.'    Deputy Taylor went on to describe what happened when she approached Lawrence ...

'I said: 'Excuse me sir, but do you realize that you're having sex with a pumpkin?'

He froze and was clearly very surprised that I was there, and then he looked me straight in the face and said:

'A pumpkin? <snip> ... is it midnight already?'

The court (and the judge) could not contain their laughter. Lawrence was found guilty only of public intoxication, fined $10. and sent on his way.    The Washington Post wrote an article describing this as "The best come-back line ever."
