There are more of us than there are of them.
I hope this turns out to be a rumor or someone’s idea of a very poor joke, but….(Thank you, Lennie. I hadn’t made my rounds this weekend to find the Fox news article. I’m personally thankful the Chinese account was inaccurate…but still am not comfortable with the flying of their flag anywhere on our sovereign ground. I don’t consider the Chinese government our ally and can’t justify flying their flag in our nation’s capitol city. Thank you for the link.) The White House Debunks Reports It Will Fly China’s Flag On South Lawn Notice the Chinese source is sticking to their original story. They will likely have a hay day with this event.
One of the last things I saw before going to bed last night was this headline from the China Daily…
The national flag of the People’s Republic of China (PRC) will be hoisted at the South Lawn of the White House in Washington on September 20, media reported Sunday.
What is our president thinking? Or…who is doing his thinking?
What has our nation become?
Better yet…what is our nation becoming?
Does anyone else have a major problem with the flying of the Chinese flag on OUR White House lawn?
Is this the “change” 51% of our nation anticipated as they voted in November? O, how I hope not!
My brother gifted me a new flag…It’s not a PRC flag!!! It’s the Gadsden flag, the Don’t Tread on Me rattlesnake symbol of American independence and freedom. As soon as I get a flag pole I will display it proudly. In the meantime, it’s large enough to use as a shawl. LOL.
Until next time…oxo
“…and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore… ”
This book is an amazing wealth of mind-boggling information impeccably backed up by facts and sources. It reveals just exactly who is behind the scene pulling the puppet strings we call government. I’ve read it with hanging jaw and bulging eyes…I don’t consider myself naive, but never did I imagine the corruption runs so deep. I can’t recommend this book more highly…but it’s not for the faint of heart or those prone to burying their heads in the sand like an ostrich. I challenge any uninformed “liberal” to read Culture Of Corruption for an eye-opening reality check. You might be surprised who you blindly support.
Michelle Malkin’s writing style is superb and makes for an excellent read…her biting wit, sharp as a two-edged sword, supplies comic relief in what would otherwise be too much reality to sanely process. Michelle’s analysis of the Obama/Chicago political machine leaves no more to the imagination than do sun worshipers on a nudist beach. Culture of Corruption truly is a must-read bestseller.
Until next time…

Bush Mocked As He Arrives on Inauguration Dais
@ 11:52 am by Hill Staff
The crowd packed on the west side of the Capitol grounds serenaded President Bush in mocking fashion when he took to the inaugural stage alongside Vice President Dick Cheney.
“Nah nah nah nah, hey hey, good-bye,” a section of the crowd chanted.
How ironic this crowd was situated on the left side of the Capitol grounds. I guess they couldn’t resist showing their true colors on this history making day. The Bush’s showed great grace and dignity throughout the day’s events. Too bad the same can’t be said for some of the crowd.
Even though I did not vote for Mr. Obama for president, I vow to show him the respect the office he has been elected to fill is due. Though many Americans did not afford President Bush the same courtesy, I believe showing a little class in our treatment of our President won’t hurt any of us regardless to how we feel about him personally. That would surely be a step toward positive change during this administration.

Seeing ourselves as others see us will not do us much good, for we will not believe what we see. ~ unknown ~
said the white woman. This seems a wee bit all-inclusive, as if no white embraces what is right…or is it just me?
Benediction at Obama ‘s inauguration, Rev. Joseph Lowery: ‘Lord, in the memory of all the saints who from their labors rest, and in the joy of a new beginning, we ask you to help us work for that day when black will not be asked to get in back, when brown can stick around… when the red man can get ahead, man; and when white will embrace what is right. That all those who do justice and love mercy say Amen. Say Amen’…
Until next time…
The Lord is pleased with the little you have if it’s the best you have. ~ unknown ~
