Conservative politics, links, surprises. Now (2013) in its fourteenth year!
Flags fly at half staff at the base of the Washington Monument in Washington, DC, with the U.S. Capital Building in the background. Why? Perhaps to acknowledge the death of the super majority (60-vote) Senate voting procedure which was been in existence for over 200 years. In exercising the "nuclear option," Harry Reid has orchestrated an historic power grab, ignoring the advice he and other top Democrats were so vehement about just a few years ago. (The real reason the flags are at half staff in this photo, taken November 22, 2013, is in remembrance of President John F. Kennedy.)
AMERICA: Land of the free because of the brave.
Results from the 2012 presidential election have convinced me that a majority of American voters has decided, knowingly or otherwise, to let our beautiful country slip silently into socialism. This grieves me more than I can express. To see the government centralize power at the expense of individual freedom, to see it attack the wealthy and successful, to see it disrespect the U.S. Constitution, to see it fundamentally transform before my very eyes make my heart break.

Quote of the Week
Receptionist: Hello, Welcome to ObamaFlowers, My name is Trina. How can I help you?
Customer: Hello. I received an email from Professional Flowers stating that my flower order has been canceled, and I should go to your exchange to reorder it. I tried your website, but it seems like it is not working. So I am calling the 800 number.
Receptionist: Yes! I am sorry about the website. It should have been fixed by the end of November. But I can help you.
Customer: Thanks, I ordered a "Spring Bouquet" for our anniversary and wanted it delivered to my wife.
Receptionist: Interrupting, Sir, "Spring Bouquets" do not meet our minimum standards, I will be happy to provide you with Red Roses.
Customer:: But I have always ordered "Spring Bouquets," done it for years, my wife likes them.
Receptionist: Roses are better, sir, I am sure your wife will love them.
Customer: Well, how much are they?
Receptionist: It depends sir, do you want our Bronze, Silver, Gold, or Platinum package.
Customer: What's the difference?
Receptionist: 6, 12, 18, or 24 Red Roses.
Customer: The Silver package may be okay, how much is it?
Receptionist: It depends, sir, what is your monthly income?
Customer: What does that have to do with anything?
Receptionist: I need that to determine your government flower subsidy, then I can determine how much your out-of-pocket cost will be. But if your income is below our minimums for a subsidy, then I can refer you to our FlowerAid department.
Receptionist: Yes, Flowers are a right. Everyone has a right to flowers. So, if you can't afford them, then the government will supply them free of charge.
Customer: Who said they were a right?
Receptionist: Congress passed it, the President signed it, and the Supreme Court found it constitutional.
Customer: Whoa! I don't remember seeing anything in the Constitution regarding flowers as a right.
Receptionist: It is not really a “Right in the Constitution,” but ObamaFlowers is Constitutional because the Supreme Court Ruled it a "Tax." Taxes are Constitutional. But we feel it is a right. Customer: I don't believe this.
Receptionist: It's the law of the land sir. Now, we anticipated most people would go for the Silver Package, so what is your monthly income, sir?
Customer: Forget it, I think I will forgo the flowers this year.
Receptionist:: In that case sir, I will still need your monthly income.
Receptionist: To determine what your “non-participation” cost would be.
Customer: WHAT? You can't charge me for NOT buying flowers!
Receptionist: It's the law of the land, sir, approved by the Supreme Court. It's $9.50 or 1% of your monthly income.
Customer (interrupting): This is ridiculous, I'll pay the $9.50.
Receptionist: Sir, it is $9.50 or 1% of your monthly income, whichever is greater.
Customer: ARE YOU KIDDING ME? What a rip-off!
Receptionist: Actually, sir, it is a good deal. Next year it will be 2%.
Customer: Look, I'm going to call my Congressman to find out what's going on here. This is ridiculous. I'm not going to pay it.
Receptionist: Sorry to hear that, sir. That's why I had the NSA track this call and obtain the make and model of the cell phone you are using.
Customer: Why does the NSA need to know what kind of CELL PHONE I AM USING?
Receptionist: So they can get your GPS coordinates, sir.
(Door Bell rings, followed immediately by a loud knock on the door.)
Receptionist: That would be the IRS, sir. Thanks for calling ObamaFlowers. Have a nice day and God Bless America.
