Old War Posters

Got this though email. Thanks Debbie! I love the look of these old posters.

~ These were our parents ~

What in God's name have we let happen ?

I guess we are the last generation to see, or even remember anything like these !

Whatever happened?

Political correctness happened,

Lack of God's name happened,

Lack of personal responsibility happened,

Lack of personal integrity and honesty happened,

Lack of respect and loyalty to our country happened,

Lack of being an American happened.

Did all of these things die along with common sense

I for one am still proud to be an American!

Time to get off the fence.

If you ever wondered what side of the fence you sit on, this is a great test!

If a conservative doesn't like guns, he doesn't buy one. If a liberal doesn't like guns, he wants all
guns outlawed.

If a conservative is a vegetarian, he doesn't eat meat. If a liberal is a vegetarian, he wants all meat products banned for everyone.

If a conservative is homosexual, he quietly leads his life. If a liberal is homosexual, he demands legislated respect.

If a conservative is down-and-out, he thinks about how to better his situation. A liberal wonders who is going to take care of him.

If a conservative doesn't like a talk show host, he switches channels. Liberals demand that those they don't like be shut down.

If a conservative is a non-believer, he doesn't go to church. A liberal non-believer wants any mention of God and religion silenced. (Unless it's a foreign religion, of course!)

If a conservative decides he needs health care, he goes about shopping for it, or may choose a job that provides it. A liberal demands that the rest of us pay for his.

If a conservative reads this, he'll forward it so his friends can have a good laugh. A liberal will delete it because he's "offended".

It's a sad day in America with the passing of the Health Bill

This says it better then I could:


WASHINGTON – Republican Party of Texas Chairman Cathie Adams released the following statement tonight:
“This evening, following a series of backroom deals and arm twisting, President Barack Obama and Speaker Nancy Pelosi convinced their members to support a $2.5 trillion dollar government-run health care bill that increases taxes, raises premiums, slashes Medicare and does nothing to control the cost of healthcare. This bill does nothing to help Texans struggling with rising insurance premiums, but instead is loaded with sweetheart deals and kickbacks for special interests, which seems to be just business as usual in Nancy Pelosi’s Democratic Congress. This bill saddles Texans with over $24 billion in new spending over the next ten years, spending which the Democrats in Washington are mandating but will not cover and which Texas cannot afford. This bill creates a new army of over 16,000 IRS agents to enforce its oneruos new taxes and Democrat-imposed mandates. This bill is not reform.
“Unfortunately for all Texans, our Democratic representatives in Congress ignored the consistent pleas of their constituents, asking them not to vote for such a reckless piece of legislation, and instead chose to stand with their party bosses in Washington. Make no doubt about it, come November the people of Texas will come to the ballot box in droves to vote for Republican candidates who will listen to them and focus on creating an enviroment that promotes jobs in the Lone Star State – not a government takeover of their healthcare.

To those Obama-Reid-Pelosi Democrats in Texas, today we send a message: In November, Texans will remember. It's time to fire Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House, and the surest way to do that is to vote Republican in November.”

Please support the Republican Party of Texas to help keep the Lone Star State strong, free and prosperous.

My phone is MIA

It started around noon on a Sunday. I had just about completed the routine 50(+/-) loads of laundry and was clearing the top of the entertainment center which is the prime nesting spot for cell phones. Mine was not in the nest. When the dh caught me trying to sneak up on the elusive hiding spot of my phone, I had to confess. The perfect rose color LG enV2 phone with the sweet little flip keyboard and my contact list had ran away from home.

“Where did you have it last?” Well, Mr. Smartie Pants, if I had known that why was I prying up large pieces of furniture and wailing like my best friend had left me? To accept his sincere help, I confess that I didn’t know where it could be all the while explaining every step I had taken in the last 24 hours. DH dialed the number. We stood perfectly still, waiting for the sound. We heard nothing so like all foolish hearts, we moved to another location and repeated the act. We got no response from the little lonely sad rose phone.

Last night, we had dinner and played cards at friends house. (Thanks Wendy & RC- love you guys.) I couldn’t have left the phone there, they would have called by now. Last night, I would have come into the house, tucked the little phone on top of the entertainment center next to the dh’s phone and went to bed. So we went over the areas, the living room, the bathroom counter tops, and the dressing table top and under the dressing table. Under the bed, in the bed, in the kicked off shoes all proved fruitless. The poor dogs didn’t even look guilty.

After awhile we decided to forget about it for awhile. Pretend you don’t care that it is missing. Soon it will show up with its soft vibrating call for its mother. Then I heard a sound. It was the banging sound of something not normal being tossed around within the washing machine. By my calculations, my wayward rose color phone had been though approximately 2.5 washes. It was dead!

DH tried to console me but it was no use. He rescued the little memory card but he couldn’t staunch the flow of soapy water from the little guy. After grieving for approximately 30 minutes, we had about 2 hours to get to the Verizon store before closing. We were on a mission of mercy to adopt another phone.

We had heard about the Druid phone from the land of Google. The large display pulled my dh directly to her. That Druid had all the sweet enticing gimmicks to charm my man into wanting her. DH was cooing to the Druid, touching her, running his fingers over her and watching in amazement as she responded to all his touches. DH offered the Druid to me to inspect but it just didn’t feel right. It was too slick, too busy and the key pad wasn’t as responsive as my little LG enV2 had been. I had my TomTom for directions and my laptop with mobile wireless internet. I just need a phone that I could text and use as a regular phone.

Somehow, that bold sophisticated Druid phone with all her tricks came home with the dh. I got his black LG enV2. One day, I might too be seduced by the Druid but for now, it’s nice having the comfort of an old trusted friend. All and all, it’s a great solution. I have a phone that I understand and he’s got a new toy that keeps him busy learning and can’t control the channel changer in the evening.
