These are great!

At a time when our president and other politicians tend to apologize for our country's prior actions, here's a refresher on how some of our former patriots handled negative comments about our country.

are good

Secretary of State, Dean Rusk, was in France in the early 60's when
DeGaule decided to pull out of NATO.. DeGaule said he wanted all US
military out of France as soon as possible.

Rusk responded,
"Does that include those who are buried here?"

did not respond.

When in England ,
at a fairly large conference, Colin Powell was asked by the
Archbishop of Canterbury if our plans for Iraq were just an example of
'empire building' by George Bush.

He answered by saying,
"Over the years, the United States has sent many of
its fine young men and women into great peril to fight for freedom
beyond our borders. The only amount of land we have ever asked for
in return is enough to bury those that did not

There was a conference in France
where a number of international engineers
were taking part, including French and American. During a break,
one of the French engineers came back into the room saying, "Have you
heard the latest dumb stunt Bush has done? He has sent an aircraft
carrier to Indonesia to help the tsunami victims. What does he
intend to do, bomb them?"
A Boeing engineer
stood up and replied quietly: "Our carriers have three
hospitals on board that can treat several hundred people; they are
nuclear powered and can supply emergency electrical power to
shore facilities; they have three cafeterias with the capacity to
feed 3,000 people three meals a day, they can produce several thousand
gallons of fresh water from sea water each day, and they carry half a
dozen helicopters for use in transporting victims and injured to and
from their flight deck. We have eleven such ships;
how many does France have?"

could have heard a pin drop.

A U.S. Navy Admiral
was attending a naval conference that included
Admirals from the U.S. , English, Canadian, Australian and French
Navies. At a cocktail reception, he found himself standing with a large
group of officers that included personnel from most of those countries.
Everyone was chatting away in English as they sipped their drinks but a
French admiral suddenly complained that, whereas Europeans learn many
languages, Americans learn only English. He then asked, "Why is it that
we always have to speak English in these conferences rather than
speaking French?"
Without hesitating,
the American Admiral replied, "Maybe it's because the
Brit's, Canadians, Aussie's and Americans arranged it so you wouldn't
have to speak German."

could have heard a pin drop.


Robert Whiting,
an elderly gentleman of 83, arrived in Paris by plane.
At French Customs, he took a few minutes to locate his passport
in his carry on.
have been to France before, monsieur?" the customs officer asked
Mr. Whiting
admitted that he had been to France
you should know enough to have your passport ready."
The American said,
"The last time I was here, I didn't have to show it."
Americans always have to show their passports on arrival in France !"
The American senior
gave the Frenchman a long hard look. Then he
quietly explained, ''Well, when I came ashore at Omaha Beach on D-Day in
1944 to help liberate this country, I couldn't find a single Frenchmen
to show a passport to."

you are proud to be an American, pass this on! If not, delete it.

I am proud to be of this land, AMERICA

The state of Michigan has lots to be proud of; our Great Lakes, our beautiful beaches,
our automobile assembly plants, and our Universities. There are just so many, many
things that Michigan is famous for.

However, I’ll bet that you didn’t know that up in Saginaw Michigan there is a little clinic, the Midwest Prostate and Urology Institute, where people come from all over the world to deal with their medical problems.

It is run by Dr. Joseph Oesterling and his assistant Laura J. Hintz. They run the clinic like a small town doctor’s office because Joe is really a farm boy at heart and when you walk into their office you think that you are going into the John Deere building, as he collects John Deere tractors. But believe it or not Dr. Oesterling is one of the foremost experts in Urology in the country. He attended Columbia University Medical School, did his residentcy at Johns Hopkins Hospital and practiced at the Mayo clinic for several years.

I have been one of his patients for over 15 years.
I can personally recommend him. He is unconventional, he is controversial, and he is willing to take on the bureaucracy of the medical profession on his own terms. He is his own person, but boy he is also a medical wiz.

When I was in there the last time I was seated next to one of the foremost entrepreneurs in the State of Michigan and right across from me sat a man who had come all the way from England to Saginaw Michigan for a consultation with Dr. Oesterling.

So if you are looking for an Institution that is unique in the State of Michigan, check out the hidden gem in Saginaw, The Midwest Prostate and Urological Institute. You’ll be glad that you did. (989)799-4840

By the way, Dr. Oesterling did not ask me to write this commentary about his Institution nor did he pay me in any way for my views. I feel that he is just a wonderful addition to the medical profession here in Michigan. Check out Dr. Joseph Oesterling.

Enough attacks. Citizen writer Lives: Michigan

Well there sure were no surprises last night were there? A self made millionaire...{Republican Rick Snyder} and an angry, desperate little man...{ Democrat mayor of lansing } who did not advance his cause one inch.

I am a union member thus, one might think I would LOVE the Angry Mayor. Fact is, me and my fellow union workers think he is a total joke and sure death for Michigan! What got the Democrats in trouble is the same strategy that Verge is using to lose this election. Attack, distort, lie and avoid the issues! He used at least ½ of his time repeating the same untruths over and over and over, and didn’t give the voters of Michigan one shred of details. We didn’t hear how he will separate himself from the failing policies of the current administration. As a matter of fact, he was totally transparent. After a question, he totally blew smoke, gave no details, and attacked the Nerd, than went back to repeating the same couple sentences to close each response. He did this consistently, over and over all night long!

Intelligent people have become sick and tired of people who are intent to spend half of the time blasting the other guy and the other half telling us how his cities economy is so bad, he gave himself and everyone else a pay and benefit cut. On the other side, we had a guy who got rich doing business with everyone all over the world, and when the state of Michigan made it hostile to business here, sold his company and spread the wealth among the workers who lost their jobs. Sounds pretty bad right? How many jobs were lost during the angry mayor’s watch and what kind of compensation did they get when Verge cut them loose?

If anyone here can read body language, the angry little mayor had a triple blink going in his right eye signifying that either he is a complete liar or so angry that his eyes are about to explode from his head from the pent up rage. Who in the hell wants a guy like this negotiating with our state house? Do you want this idiot dealing with lawmakers in this erratic and psychotic looking fashion? Not me! I would rather have a guy who keeps a cool head, sticks to the facts and refuses to digress into the mud slinging and bold face lies that we have had to deal with for years and got us where we are now.

Independent fact finding agencies and Truth in Politics has identified the claims that the angry mayor keeps throwing out there time and time again to be 100% false and misleading, yet Verge keeps on relying on the angry rhetoric. We have a clear outsider on one side that made a life of putting himself through college, built several successful companies, and negotiates with other companies with larger annual revenue streams then our whole state. On the other, we have a mayor who can do nothing more than employ the same old slash and burn tactics to get elected while looking like he is ready for the psyche ward. Do we really need another person who is going to divide our state house? GOD NO!

The Nerd showed himself able to maintain his cool and composure in the face of repeated attacks, lies and rhetoric. He stayed on point and gave Verge no where to go except into the dark hole of anger and baseless attacks.

I don’t often vote Republican, but if this hate filled short circuit of a man thinks that using the same old business as usual will get us anything but more of the same, there is no way I can vote for this desperate career politician.


John, It’s Been Good to Know You

October 2, 2010


I have voted for John Dingell in every election since I have been able to vote and that was a very long time ago. But this year I’ll be saying goodbye to Big John. It’s been good to know you, but John Dingell I am going to have to vote for Republican Dr. Rob Steele.

John Dingell is a good man, but when the Democratic Party led by Nancy Pelosi and Henry Waxman of California and Lynne Rivers of Michigan tried to dump John in his last election, John beat them. But for revenge the Liberal left coast Leadership of Congress who hate the American Auto Industry and Mr Dingells defense of USA made cars, stripped John of the very power of longevity that he had amassed after all his years in congress.

John Dingell is no longer a power in the Congress. At one time Dingell was bigger than the Democratic Party. You could always count on John to vote his conscience and not his Party, but after they did their “number” on John he capitulated and has fallen into lockstep with the Liberal Hierarchy of the Democratic Party.

John at one time belonged to the National Rifle Association, but when that became a no…no from the Progressive Democratic Party, John dumped his membership. John used to lead the Democratic Party, but recently he has become a follower. Maybe it is time for John to retire and let a new comer take on the good fight.

Yes, I am going to vote for Dr. Rob Steele. I am unhappy with the way the Democratic Party has portrayed young Dr. Rob Steele. They are down on him because he is a successful doctor. It seems like the Democrats do not like successful people if they are running against any of their Liberal spend,spend Candidates. They are mad at this man because he has eight cars. Well, his wife is also a physician and they have four kids. Maybe you need more than one car in big a family. Well let me tell you, today you do.Plus if they are American Michigan made cars made by Michigan auto workers, so much the better.

So I am going to vote for Dr. Rob Steele. Give him a chance. He’s a Republican and I’ve basically been a Democrat my whole life, but I believe that it is now time for a change in Washington DC. So John Dingell, I love you and I think you’re a great guy, but
I cannot vote for you in good conscience anymore because in my mind you represent the Liberal Democratic Party and not the independent John Dingell, “the great man” that I remember and still respect.

I found this on the web the other night, What do you think about these statements ?

I Am the Democratic Liberal-Progressive's Worst Nightmare.
I am an White, Conservative, Tax-Paying, American Veteran, Gun Owning Biker.
I am a Master leatherworker. I work hard and long hours with my hands to earn a living.

I believe in God and the freedom of religion, but I don't push it on others.
I ride Harley Davidson Motorcycles, and drive American-made cars, and I believe in American products and buy them whenever I can.

I believe the money I make belongs to me and not some liberal governmental functionary, Democratic or Republican, that wants to share it with others who don't work!

I'm in touch with my feelings and I like it that way!

I think owning a gun doesn't make you a killer; it makes you a smart American.

I think being a minority does not make you noble or victimized, and does not entitle you to anything. Get over it!

I believe that if you are selling me a Big Mac or any other item, you should do it in English. I believe there should be no other language option.

I believe everyone has a right to pray to his or her God when and where they want to.

My heroes are Malcolm Forbes, Bill Gates, John Wayne, Babe Ruth, Roy Rogers, and Willie G. Davidson, who makes the awesome Harley Davidson Motorcycles.

I don't hate the rich. I don't pity the poor.

I know wrestling is fake and I don't waste my time watching or arguing about it.

I've never owned a slave, nor was a slave. I haven't burned any witches or been persecuted by the Turks, and neither have you!

I believe if you don't like the way things are here, go back to where you came from and change your own country!

This is AMERICA ...We like it the way it is and more so the way it was stop trying to change it to look like Russia or China, or other socialist country!

If you were born here and don't like it... you are free to move to any Socialist country that will have you. (And take Barack Hussein Obama and his group with you.) Massachusetts started the ball rolling. Keep it going.

I believe it is time to really clean house.

I want to know which church is it, exactly, where the Reverend Jesse Jackson preaches, where he gets his money, and why he is always part of the problem and not the solution.

Can I get an AMEN on that one?

I also think the cops have the right to pull you over if you're breaking the law, regardless of what color you are, but not just because you happen to ride a bike.

And, no, I don't mind having my face shown on my driver's license.

I think it's good.... And I'm proud that 'God' is written on my money..

I think if you are too stupid to know how a ballot works, I don't want you deciding who should be running the most powerful nation in the world for the next four years.

I dislike those people standing in the intersections trying to sell me stuff or trying to guilt me into making 'donations' to their cause.... Get a job and do your part to support yourself and your family!

I believe that it doesn't take a village to raise a child, it takes two parents....

I believe 'illegal' is illegal no matter what the lawyers think!

I believe the American flag should be the only one allowed in AMERICA !

If this makes me a BAD American, then yes, I'm a BAD American.

If you are a BAD American too, please forward this to everyone you know....

We want our country back!



Hot Times in Texas

September 3, 2010

OK, Here you go. Now they're having a hell of a hot time in Texas. This is a talk show Disc Jockey from Houston. I've never heard of him before, but he sure comes down hard on the Democrats.

So, if you're a Democrat you can write in and tell me that he doesn't know what he is saying and complain. That's fine. Because within the next few days I am going to put up a pro-Arab thing and that is going to drive some of my conservative friends crazy, but I am sorry. This is still a Democracy and we still have to hear different voices even those voices that we don't like.

Take a listen to this guy. He is something else.


Bring It On !

August 13, 2010

Take a look at this video. It came to me the other day. Now you make up your mind, but at least watch the whole video before you start saying that it's a conspiracy. That's an easy out. It's as easy as calling someone a racist when you disagree with them. The insult tends to stick, but it doesn't necessarily make it true. Watch the whole video and then make your comments.

Let me make my assesment of this tape. I think that some of this is real , but I also think that some of the words coming out of Obama's mouth in the first part of this video have been put there by clever editing. My own opinion is that he was not born in the United States, and there are lots of things pointing in that direction. Mr. Obama can solve this issue by producing vault copies of his birth certificate. Why doesn't he do this? Now there's the question.


Democratic Party , Do You Get IT ?

August 9, 2010

Lavish Obama vacation in time of economic turmoil raises eyebrows...
While president preaches sacrifice, his family frolics in Spain...
Trip cost taxpayers $75k a day Headlines across America and the World. Nuff Said..Democrats pass bill to cut food stamps to pay for more laid-off teachers being rehired....UPDATE: Federal workers earning double their private counterparts...The Obama presidency is out of touch with the American people


You did it!

August 6, 2010

Remember that song from “My Fair Lady” when Dr. Henry Higgins finally taught Eliza how to speak the King’s English and his friend hollered out to him, “You did it! You did it!”? Well, Rick Snyder did it as the Republican Candidate for Michigan’s Governor. So, congratulations to Mr. Snyder and it’s a great day for those of us in Michigan.

Let me go out on a limb and say that the next Governor of Michigan will be Republican Candidate Rick Snyder. And let’s hope that the Democrats that are full of palaver will shut up and give Mr. Snyder a chance to run this state as it should be governed. Good luck Governor Snyder. And remember I predicted this on August 6, 2010.


Rick is coming

July 23, 2010

I am voting for Rick Snyder for Govenor. He is a Conservative and I have a lot of faith in him. Plus he has strong Dearborn roots. His wife is from Dearborn in fact he was married in a little church up here on Cherry Hill Rd. and Telegraph. He also has a lot of relatives here.

His sign just says "Hire Rick for Michigan". A lot of people don't know that his last name is Snyder, but we can solve that problem because Rick is coming to St. Martha's Church on Oakwood Boulevard, that's across the street from Oakwood Hospital, on Tues. July 27th. If you would like to attend this meeting to hear what the man has to say you can register by clicking on the link below.
