Political Correctness is Out – It’s Time to Tell it Like It Is

Just saw this on Another Black Conservative.

This is Ann Barnhardt and she takes Lindsey Graham and the Quran to task quite passionately, and effectively, in the following video.

Ladies and gentlemen, THIS is the type of citizen this country needs more of. People who aren’t afraid to call these corrupt politicians out and to logically and systematically dispute their insane political spin and out-of-control political correctness.

I admire this woman. She’s got balls.

She also goes through the Quran and quotes specific passages, pointing out how evil the message behind the Quran is and how the Quran has no place in a civilized country. She even goes so far as to burn it. I haven’t embedded it here because it’s quite long, and a bit tedious, but you get the point.

ADDED: By the way, I’m not a big proponent of burning anything and I think she might have gone too far in this case, but I think her bigger point, at least, it’s what I took away from her stunt, is that we need to start standing up for our beliefs and freedoms and have the courage to fight anything that threatens those freedoms.

And we have politicians, an entire party, who want to defend this religion and persuade our country to be tolerant of this evil doctrine.


Numbers don’t lie, folks, politicians do. It’s time to pull our heads from the sand and be prepared for tough decisions – we can’t sugar coat our dire situation anymore – we need to get this debt under control and the people in power now? Have NO INTEREST in seeing that happen. They want people to be dependent on the government for every essential aspect of our lives.


If you haven’t been paying attention, then shame on you. Our country is at a crossroads and we need the ADULTS to step up and do something about it. If not for you, then for your children and future grandchildren. Look at your kids, they’re counting on you to make the right decision. Let’s get this mess under control, people. NOW.

The president’s recent budget proposal would accelerate America’s descent into a debt crisis. It doubles debt held by the public by the end of his first term and triples it by 2021. It imposes $1.5 trillion in new taxes, with spending that never falls below 23% of the economy. His budget permanently enlarges the size of government. It offers no reforms to save government health and retirement programs, and no leadership.

Our budget, which we call The Path to Prosperity, is very different. For starters, it cuts $6.2 trillion in spending from the president’s budget over the next 10 years, reduces the debt as a percentage of the economy, and puts the nation on a path to actually pay off our national debt. Our proposal brings federal spending to below 20% of gross domestic product (GDP), consistent with the postwar average, and reduces deficits by $4.4 trillion.

A study just released by the Heritage Center for Data Analysis projects that The Path to Prosperity will help create nearly one million new private-sector jobs next year, bring the unemployment rate down to 4% by 2015, and result in 2.5 million additional private-sector jobs in the last year of the decade. It spurs economic growth, with $1.5 trillion in additional real GDP over the decade. According to Heritage’s analysis, it would result in $1.1 trillion in higher wages and an average of $1,000 in additional family income each year.

G is For Good Grief

This post isn’t about the “Good Grief” as in “Oh brother, what now?” but about the actual process of grieving, of losing someone we love.

Grief is never “good”, but we can grieve in a “good” way. In fact, grieving is essential when dealing with loss and then slowly piecing our shattered lives back together again.

I know this is a Christian-based teaching, but this teaching has a lot of helpful tips on how to process grief in a healthy and helpful way.

I hope these videos bless you and if you’ve suffered a loss recently, I’m so sorry. (((hugs)))

I’m participating in the A to Z challenge. You can sign up for the challenge here. Just post something every day with the appropriate letter (except for Sundays), and then submit your link to one of the hosts and don’t forget to visit other participants! Also, you can find other A to Z participants on Twitter via the #atozchallenge hashtag. (Keep your posts short – not more than 500 words – to make it easy on visitors. I think there were about 1100 participants the last time I checked).
