The excerpt below was sent to me by a friend.  I share for 5 reasons:

 

  1. I live in California.
  2. I am a SMART woman, at least in my not-so-humble opinion.
  3. I have never voted for Dianne Frankenstein and never will.
  4. Yes, California seems to have a penchant for electing obnoxious and totally foolish women.
  5. My husband is from Maine (note the reference to Maine below).

 

Therefore … I offer the below idiocy.

Quote of the day by “Dianne Feinstein”:

 

Dianne Feinstein:  “All vets are mentally “ill” in some way and government should prevent them from owning firearms.”

 

Yep, she really said it in a meeting in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee … and the quote below from the LA Times is priceless.  Sometimes even the L.A. Times gets it right.

 

Kurt Nimmo:  “Senator Feinstein insults all U.S. Veterans as she flays about in a vain attempt to save her anti-firearms bill.”

 

Quote of the Day from the Los Angeles Times:

 

“Frankly, I don’t know what it is about California , but we seem to have a strange urge to elect really obnoxious women to high office.  I’m not bragging, you understand, but no other state, including  Maine, even comes close.  When it comes to sending left-wing dingbats to Washington, we’re Number One.  There’s no getting around the fact that the last time anyone saw the likes of Barbara Boxer, Dianne Feinstein, Maxine Waters, and Nancy Pelosi, they were stirring a cauldron when the curtain went up on ‘Macbeth’.  The four of them are like jackasses who happen to possess the gift of blab.

You don’t know if you should condemn them for their stupidity or simply marvel at their ability to form words.”

Columnist Burt Prelutsky, Los Angeles Times

I actually agree with the LA Times for a change.  That’s all I have to offer.

One year later, families of those murdered have few answers on Benghazi attack … and American politicians are failing the citizenry …

 

Benghazi

 

It’s appalling, plain, flat, and simple.

Don’t let the Washington Politicos or the lamestream liberal media tell you any different.

BO, you’re a poor excuse of a man, because you were more interested in your political future than in an attack on an American Embassy.

Oh … and Hillary?

IT MAKES A HUGE DIFFERENCE WHAT HAPPENED TO 4 AMERICANS …

THAT’S  what difference it makes, you heartless witch.

(I’d use another word for her, but I’ll attempt to be nice.  I may not be “PC” … but I’ll attempt to at least be nice, something she has no clue how to be.)

This weekend, Roy and I are at a business conference for entrepreneurs in Denver, Colorado.  We’ve started several businesses off and on.  Some of them have done well.  Some of them have not.  We’ve gone through some very rough financial times, and we’ve also had some very good times.  We’re coming through an incredibly rough patch, and we’re bound back toward the top.

We were scheduled to go to the same type of conference in Seattle, Washington in late April 2013, but it conflicted with some plans we had already made long ago, so we looked for other options and bit the financial bullet to come further and go to a different one.  Many people don’t and won’t understand why we did this.  Those people with the “job mentality” wouldn’t have done this … but those that “DO WHAT YOU GOTTA DO” or those with the “GO THE EXTRA MILE” attitude … those “Blue Vasers” of the world … will do whatever they have to do to get ahead in life and go for their dream.  This is what we have always done.  We are willing to step out on a limb and go for it.  If you want to get ahead in life, that’s what you must be willing to do.

Our plans don’t always work … but living a “kind of, sort of” life where you do what you’re told and never step out of your safe little box will definitely not give you the big results and the successful life.  We can’t do that.  It’s that successful life and the big results and the financial rewards that we are looking to obtain.  Those people who are afraid to step out of the pack (you know … the “sheeple” of the world which we patently refuse to be) and only think that the “successful” were “lucky” are those that don’t understand how often the “lucky” successful ones failed first.  Maybe they had big failures (and both Roy and I know about those), but they are also the ones that, against all odds, keep going and are finally rewarded with the big gains.

So I’ll end with quoting the below … because this is what the truly “successful” and the true “winners” of this world have within their inner being, helping them drive forward.

You know a dream is like a river,

ever-changing as it flows,

and the dreamer is just a vessel

that must follow where it goes.

Trying to learn from what’s behind you

and never knowing what’s in store

makes each day a constant battle

just to stay between the shores,

and I will sail my vessel

till the river runs dry.

Like a bird upon the wind,

these waters are my sky.

I’ll never reach my destination

if I never try,

so I will sail my vessel

til the river runs dry.

Too many times we stand aside

and let the water slip away

till what we put off till tomorrow

has now become today.

So don’t you sit up on the shoreline

and say you’re satisfied.

Choose to chance the rapids

and dare to dance the tide.

Yes, I will sail my vessel

till the river runs dry.

Like a bird upon the wind,

these waters are my sky.

I’ll never reach my destination

if I never try,

so I will sail my vessel

til the river runs dry.

There’s bound to be rough waters,

and I know I’ll take some falls.

With the Good Lord as my Captain,

I can make it through them all.

Yes, I will sail my vessel

till the river runs dry.

Like a bird upon the wind,

these waters are my sky.

I’ll never reach my destination

if I never try,

so I will sail my vessel

til the river runs dry.

… and do tell …

WHY WOULD WE?

All they are doing is dragging the country with them into their self-inflicted sinkhole.
