The sun goes down and a cold night shall ensue!

The evening of November 24, 2012 marked a change of the seasons for me. Gone were those warm days of fall where occasionally the thermometer would rise into the sixties and seventies. Now, a new regime was about to ensue, a time of bone chilling cold and high electric bills as my heat pump struggled mightily to keep me warm.

Gone too are my warm and fuzzy feelings for our Federal government as I fear the cold winds of austerity now lurk around every corner. Yet, as I write this, I still feel deep down inside that all those smart cats in Congress will be just warm as toast in the coming months….it’s funny how the mind works sometimes…

So, let us all drink and be merry, for tomorrow the poor like me and you shall suffer.

The ant and the grasshopper!

While I did not write this or even know who did...I so agree with the meanings...

This one is a little different....
Two Different Versions ... Two Different Morals

  The Old Version...

ant works
hard in the withering heat all summer long,
building his house and laying up supplies for the winter.

grasshopper thinks the ant is a fool
and laughs and dances and plays the summer away.

Come winter, the
ant is warm
and well fed.

grasshopper has
no food or shelter, so he
dies out in the cold.

Moral of the old story:

Be responsible for yourself!

Now the Modern Version:

ant works
hard in the withering heat and the rain all summer long,
building his house and laying up supplies for the winter.

grasshopper thinks the ant is a fool
and laughs and dances and plays the summer away.

Come winter, the shivering
grasshopper calls a press conference and demands to know why the ant should be
allowed to be warm and well fed while he is cold and starving.

and ABC show up to
provide pictures of the shivering
grasshopper next to a video of the ant
in his comfortable home with a table filled with food. 

America is stunned by the sharp contrast.

How can it be, that in a country of such wealth,
this poor
grasshopper is allowed to suffer so?

Kermit the Frog
appears on Oprah
with the
grasshopper and everybody cries when they sing, 'It's Not Easy Being Green...'

'Occupy the Anthill' stages
a demonstration in front of the
ant's house
where the news stations film the
SEIU group singing
"We shall overcome."

Rev. Jeremiah Wright
has the group kneel down to pray for the
grasshopper's sake,
while he damns the

President Obama
condemns the ant
and blames
President Bush 43, President Bush 41, President Reagan,
Christopher Columbus,
and the Pope

for the
grasshopper's plight..

Nancy Pelosi & Harry Reid
exclaim in an interview with Larry King
that the
ant has gotten rich
off the back of
the grasshopper, and both call for an immediate tax hike on the ant
to make him pay his 'fair share.'

Finally, the EEOC drafts
the Economic Equity &
Anti-Grasshopper Act
retroactive to the beginning of
the summer.

ant is fined for failing to hire a proportionate number
green bugs and,
nothing left to pay his retroactive taxes,
his home is confiscated by the Government
Green Czar
and given
to the grasshopper.

The story ends as we see the
and his free-loading friends finishing up the last bits of the ant's food
while the government house he is
which, as you recall,  just happens to be the
ant's old house,
crumbles around them because the
grasshopper doesn't maintain it.

ant has disappeared in the snow, never to be seen again.

grasshopper is found dead in a drug related incident,
and the house, now abandoned,
is taken over
by a gang of spiders who terrorize
the ramshackle, once prosperous
and peaceful neighborhood.

The entire
Nation collapses
bringing the rest
of the free world with it.


This is how the nation voted in 2012!

I've posted this to you because I believe that my readers are
ants & not grasshoppers!

Please pass
this message on to the other
Let's regroup and clean out Congress
in 2014 !!!

Here's a hint:

And so the scramble begins....

Get ready to pay more for your Grand Slam.

A Florida restaurateur who operates roughly 40 Denny’s locations and five Hurricane Grill & Wings franchises in Florida, Virginia and Georgia intends to add a 5 percent surcharge to customers’ bills to offset costs from ObamaCare beginning in January 2014 when the Affordable Care Act is fully implemented.

“People are trying to find ways to avoid the penalties and to avoid having to pay for ObamaCare,” John Metz told “Everyone’s looking for a way to not have to provide insurance for their employees. It’s essentially a huge tax on all us business people.”

To further offset the costs, Metz, who oversees roughly 1,200 employees as president and CEO of RREMC Restaurants, LLC, said he also will slash most of the staff's time to fewer than 30 hours per week. That change will be announced to employees next month, he said.

It's a brave new world!

Now that We the People have made our decision as to what direction America will be taking – i.e. socialism, I thought it would be interesting to see just where we’re actually headed. Above is a recent graph that depicts the unemployment rates for some Euro countries. You’ll notice that the socialist run (or leaning towards) countries of Spain, Portugal and Greece aren’t faring so well. (Note: Portugal is not shown, but it's currently at 15.8% as of the third quarter). Hmmm.

Now, I’m sure that some how and some way, our Great Divider, President Obama will find a way to avert what has befallen other countries that tread the mega-government role model. (I’m saying this even as there is news today that we are on track for yet another trillion dollars in deficit spending).

But, just how far in the future, I wonder, will be the announcement of our own national ‘austerity’ measures? I also wonder how well the typical democrat will take such measures. Will there be riots in the streets? Will I ever get to say ‘I told you so’?

What a God awful mess: Is Obama the Anti-Christ?

As of late, what with the election and all, I’ve felt like I was living back in the good old days. It seemed like 1933 again and in somewhere Germany there was a young Nazi Party that was ever so busy learning how to perfect the tools of propaganda that would eventually kill millions.

Fast forward to 2012 and November the 6th. A day that I believe will live in infamy, after millions of Americans were so completely duped by an evil and all pervasive media into voting back into office the one man who I feel can bring down Western Civilization.

Well, sieg heil and all that ABC, CBS and the rest. You have this unholy mess on your hands now. For my part, I will never speak kindly of any of you for the rest of my life. As a collective enterprise, you represent an evil empire that has soiled the pure waters of this Republic and I pray that eventually you will be brought to justice.
