Disenfranchising the military

Some states have missed the deadline for getting absentee ballots to our warriors. Isn’t that grand? They risk life and limb to protect us, but at least some people don’t give a toot if they get to VOTE for the people who decide when and whether we go to war!

I won’t hold my breath waiting for Obama Democrats to lift a finger. Dems claim to care about everybody getting their right to vote, but the fact is, they only ACT on behalf of demographics that tend to vote Democrat. The majority of the military votes Republican, which is not surprising, since Democrats openly despise them and regularly cut funding to score more bucks for their own pet demographics.

I’m sure the Left will say it’s self-serving for Romney to actually DO something about the military getting their ballots on time. But it just makes me more happy that I voted for him. MY absentee ballot is already on its way to the election office.

For those of you who are voting in person … you’ve got EIGHTEEN DAYS! Do. Not. Forget.

Oct 17 Prayer for Our Nation

Hear my cry, O God;
Attend to my prayer.
From the end of the earth I will cry to You,
When my heart is overwhelmed;
Lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
For You have been a shelter for me,
A strong tower from the enemy.
I will abide in Your tabernacle forever;
I will trust in the shelter of Your wings.
Psalm 61:1-4

Father,

We recognize that there are those who would speak evil against You when hardship knocks at their door. Let us forever stand firm in the foundation of our faith. Let us live in the center of Your will. We will come to You each day for strength and endurance. Help us, O God, to be the people You wish us to be, for we trust in You.

Amen.

THE POST-DEBATE GRUDGE

posted by Pistol Pete

First,on a personal note my first Social Security payment was deposited this morning.Kindly tell all your taxpaying acquainyances to keep working since I really need the money.

I suspect all of you are coming here looking for some post-debate snark.Well,you’ve come to the right place.I’m posting late today because I was up very late and didn’t get much sleep.Frequent naps are one of the perks of being a retiree and I exercise that benefit liberally.

It was a little disappointing to me that Romney didn’t shred the amateur as we hoped he would,but the feeling is he did OK.I will post a number of highlights from last night and the first item on this thread is the entire debate in case you missed it.I know chrissy is televisually challenged so she can watch the carnage for herself.The left had already predetermined that obama won the debate.That’s no surprise.Tingles almost soiled himself,calling it the best debate he’d ever seen.The bar was set so low compared to the last debacle he’d have been considered victorious if he didn’t end the debate with his pants around his ankles.

Romney fumbled a little,which is understandable given the pressure he was under in a hostile environment.The behavior of Candy ‘Creepy’ Crowley was absolutely appalling.Half the questions she chose were virulently anti-Romney and at the most critical time of the debate interjected herself to save Obama’s ass.The night got off to a bad start when the first shot showed her head seemingly floating in space because she wore a black dress against a dark background.Whoever told that broad black was thinning?

Obama was once again shown to be a small man capable of nothing but big rhetoric and small results.Every time Romney told the truth he kept saying ‘that’s not true’ but could offer nothing substantive to back up his boasts and accusations.Such is often the case when you’re dealing with adolescents.My sense is that a great number of good people who were taken in by the hype have come to see him for what he really is.Nothing he did or said last night did anything to move them.Maybe I’m being overly optimistic but I can sense a possible 40 state blowout in the offing.
