I would.

We watched “The Iron Lady” this past weekend and WOW – Margaret Thatcher was one tough lady! (And I was super impressed with Meryl Streep’s performance).

But some of the things she said really resonated with me … for example:

One of the greatest problems of our age is that we are governed by people who care more about feelings than they do about thoughts and ideas. Now, thoughts and ideas, that interests me.

Watch your thoughts, for they become words.Watch your words, for they become actions. Watch your actions, for they become habits. Watch your habits, for they become your character. And watch your character, for it becomes your destiny. What we think, we become.

I think we’ve been through a period where too many people have been given to understand that if they have a problem, it’s the government’s job to cope with it. ‘I have a problem, I’ll get a grant.’ ‘I’m homeless, the government must house me.’ They’re casting their problem on society. And, you know, there is no such thing as society. There are individual men and women, and there are families. And no government can do anything except through people, and people must look to themselves first. It’s our duty to look after ourselves and then, also to look after our neighbour. People have got the entitlements too much in mind, without the obligations. There’s no such thing as entitlement, unless someone has first met an obligation.

There are significant differences between the American and European version of capitalism. The American traditionally emphasizes the need for limited government, light regulations, low taxes and maximum labour-market flexibility. Its success has been shown above all in the ability to create new jobs, in which it is consistently more successful than Europe.

Sadly, not anymore. Our country is definitely not as successful as it used to be and I not only blame OBummer, but the government in general. America is no longer, “We the People,” it’s “We the People want the Government to Take Care of Us Because Being a Responsible Adult is Too Hard.” (Insert incessant whining here).

Yes, I’m bitter. I’m one of the 51% working stiffs supporting the other 50% of people who DON’T work. It’s disgusting the way this country kowtows to people who are physically, and mentally, capable of working but choose not to.

These comments kill me. So, by your logic, it will be equally okay to get involved in a fight that is not our fight when we have a Republican president? Right?? You can’t have it both ways … either we help them because it’s the right thing to do, or we don’t, regardless of the party in power at the time.

Right. Because the old regime was such an innocent bunch of good ‘ole boys who wouldn’t hurt a fly … until they organized and flew planes into American buildings and killed thousands of innocent people.

Idiot.

And let’s not forget that we just added fuel to the crazy terrorist fire by releasing five top Iranian terrorists to join the fight and brain storm new, horrific ways to kill us.

Hey. Don’t look at me, I didn’t vote for the numbnut.

“It’s like a crapshoot,” Spratte says. “You may or may not be letting something in with a disease we haven’t had in the U.S. before.” He says he knows of an active case of tuberculosis that passed through the facility, along with people who had scabies and others who had measles. There was even one case of leprosy, he says. “I don’t think the people in the interior U.S. realize it’s a different world,” Spratte says. “This is the U.S., but it’s a different part of the U.S. This is almost like a different country.”

“We can’t solve this, we can’t stop the problem because it’s not an enforcement thing, it’s a policy,” he says. “Because whether or not it was intentional, the policies they have in Washington I believe are encouraging them (illegal immigrants).”

Uh, YA THINK???

Hey, ya’ll voted the SOB into office FOR THE SECOND TIME.

Now deal with his “Utopia.”

It’s just scary to think how quickly people can be duped into giving up their (and unfortunately, OUR) rights. The government always starts with some BS narrative. “It’s for the children” (gun control) “It’s to stop the terrorists” (TSA molestation) “It’s a humanitarian crisis” (illegal invasion) “It’s to stop the welfare leeches” (sterilization).

Yeah, right. If they really wanted to make people personally accountable, they’d stop welfare. It’s really that simple. That’s not what they want though. They love taking our money and buying votes. They want more of our liberties.


That is so obviously apparent, that I can’t understand how people don’t see it. There’s some bizarre sentiment of loyalty towards politicians/party to the point where people allow themselves (and even their children, elderly) to be abused and look the other way.

Welfare needs to end, on all levels. Whether it’s foreign aid, “bailouts,” or food stamps. It creates a dependent class of people who have absolutely no idea that there is a better way–competency.


I completely agree. It’s no coincidence that once America got in the welfare business (like you said, on all levels, foreign aid, bailouts, food stamps, etc.), our greatness started to wane.


A few of the comments from the above article.

I have to agree. Though it's a good idea to sterilize losers like this guy (dude – ever heard of CONDOMS?? Ladies, ever heard of COMMON SENSE??), it's a dangerous road to travel. That's why America is in the shape she's in today – the government has chipped away too many of our freedoms.
