Retired or bored? Here's something you can do to have fun.

(Thank You N!)

Working people frequently ask retired people what they do to make their days interesting.

Well, for example, the other day my wife and I went into town and went into a shop.

We were only in there for about 5 minutes. When we came out, there was a cop writing out a parking ticket.

We went up to him and said, 'Come on man, how about giving a senior citizen a break?'

He ignored us and continued writing the ticket.. I called him a Nazi turd. He glared at me and started writing another ticket for having worn tires.

So my wife called him a shit-head. He finished the second ticket and put it on the windshield with the first. Then I told him he wouldn't be writing them tickets if we were black. Then he started writing a third ticket. This went on for about 20 minutes. The more we abused him, the more tickets he wrote.

Personally, we didn't care. We came into town by bus and the car had an Obama sticker. We try to have a little fun each day now that we're retired. It's important at our age.

ACORN Considers Ending Voter Registration Work

Troubled community-organizing group Acorn announced Thursday it was considering quitting its voter-registration work amid growing outrage over its activities, a move that could hurt Democrats at the polls. Friday, September 18, 2009

Community-organizing group Acorn said Thursday it was considering quitting its voter-registration work amid a growing political storm over its activities, a move that could hurt Democrats at the polls.

In the latest rebuke, the House of Representatives voted overwhelmingly Thursday to block the group from receiving federal funds. Republicans attached the measure attacking Acorn to an unrelated bill that advances a top Democratic priority: making the federal government the sole provider of college loans under federal programs, forcing private lenders out of the origination market.

The Acorn measure passed with strong bipartisan support, 345-75, while the student-loan bill passed by 253-171, largely along party lines.

After the vote, Republican Whip Eric Cantor of Virginia said "Acorn has violated serious federal laws" and was a "corrupt organization."

Note from Watchdog: Keep up the good work and don't let your gaurd down!

President Obama Witnessed Taxpayer March on Washington

On the morning of Saturday, September 12, President Obama boarded Marine One at the White House en route to Andrews Air Force Base just southeast of the Washington D.C. beltway in Maryland. From there he flew to Minnesota to address a 15,000 attendee rally on health care. By 10:30 AM freedom-loving Americans concerned with the future of their country had begun marching down Pennsylvania Avenue. The throng of people who flooded the streets, metro stops, and Freedom Plaza would have been visible from the window of the President’s aircraft as he traveled to Andrews Air Force Base. In fact, Marine One was recognized by many of the protestors.

Robert Gibbs said on Friday, September 11, concerning the March on Washington, “I don’t know who the group is.” It wasn’t until Sunday when Gibbs was shown a picture from the front page of the Washington Post that he acknowledged that it even took place. However, Mr. Obama witnessed the March on Washington first hand from the air as he left the city to speak to a much smaller crowd.

FreedomWorks President Matt Kibbe commented, “No matter what the left wing media says about how many people were at the march, the President knows how big it was: he flew right over it. If he really wanted to address citizens concerned about health care legislation and the future of their country he should have landed the helicopter on the Capitol lawn.”

FreedomWorks Chairman Dick Armey commented, “I honestly believe the President wanted to address Americans concerned with health care, but after seeing the size of the crowd he realized there was no place to land and flew to Minnesota instead.”

Schwarzenegger calls for ACORN investigation

LOS ANGELES -- Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger called on California's attorney general Wednesday to investigate ACORN, the community organizing group that has recently come under fire in videos produced by conservative activists.

The videos show the group's workers offering advice on how to set up prostitution businesses, the activists have said.

Schwarzenegger sent a letter to Attorney General Jerry Brown asking his office to look into ACORN's activities in California, the Los Angeles Times reported.

The advocacy group was criticized after employees were caught on camera appearing to advise a couple posing as a prostitute and pimp to lie about the woman's profession to get housing help.

The most recent video, released Wednesday on FOX News, was filmed in San Diego. A man appearing to pose as a pimp asks a worker if Tijuana, Mexico, is the best place to bring underage girls into the U.S. The man replies, "yes," saying he has a lot of friends there who can assist.

Today is Constitution Day. Take this easy Test

Happy Constitution Day

END taxpayer funding of ACORN. TAKE ACTION NOW!

It’s time for us to go on offense. Help us with our campaign to END taxpayer funding of ACORN. TAKE ACTION NOW!
Be sure to spread the word to your friends and family about ACORN’s corruption, and its criminal activities. Remember how President Obama bragged about his work with ACORN?
When Obama met with ACORN leaders in November, he reminded them of his history with ACORN and his beginnings in Illinois as a Project Vote organizer, a nonprofit focused on voter rights and education. Senator Obama said, “I come out of a grassroots organizing background. That’s what I did for three and half years before I went to law school. That’s the reason I moved to Chicago was to organize. So this is something that I know personally, the work you do, the importance of it. I’ve been fighting alongside ACORN on issues you care about my entire career. Even before I was an elected official, when I ran Project Vote voter registration drive in Illinois, ACORN was smack dab in the middle of it, and we appreciate your work.”
Let’s work together to support the work of James O’Keefe and Hannah Giles as they do more investigative journalism than the major media networks combined. Congrats to James and Hannah for employing Saul Alinsky’s “Rules for Radicals” against the corrupt radicals at ACORN.

Charges of Racism Inflame Health Care Debate

The national debate on health care reform has turned ugly, with some leveling charges of racism against opponents.

A Congressional Black Caucus member said Tuesday fears the revival of America's worst days of race hatred.

"I guess we'll probably have folks putting on white hoods and white uniforms again and riding through the countryside, intimidating people," Rep. Hank Johnson, D-Ga., said when asked whether Rep. Joe Wilson's shout to President Obama that "You lie," reflected the sentiment of racists.

"And you know that's the logical conclusion if this kind of attitude is not rebuked," Johnson said.

New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd also found Wilson's heckling of Obama to be racially motivated, writing that Wilson really meant, "You lie, boy."

On Tuesday evening, former President Jimmy Carter said in an interview with NBC that "an overwhelming portion" of those who demonstrate against Obama are doing so because the president is a black man.
