here is part of our problem, our government wastes money on organizations not designed to help the people but designed to help themselves politically.

just like the OECD, 100 million taxpayer dollars wasted.

any lawmaker who votes for taxpayer money to be spent on this garbage should have to face charges for misuse of public funds.

Christians around the world, join hands and hearts, stand up and show that we are not a silent minority and that we serve a mighty God who will not be thwarted as we unite against all who would come against us! The ACLU is one such entity in the United States.(More about that below.)

In Matthew 5:44 Jesus said,“But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you.”

I’m asking every Christian around the world to join in prayerfully wishing the ACLU a “Merry Christmas” by each one of us taking one Christian “Merry Christmas” card and a postage stamp and mailing it to the ACLU. Put a little Christ in their Christmas and a smile on God’s face! Don’t identify it as a Christmas card and maybe all the time it will take them to open thousands, hopefully tens or thousands of thousands of Christmas cards, will keep them too busy to worry about taking the Christ out of anyone else’s Christmas, and just maybe God will work on their hearts and minds in the process!

Tell the ACLU to leave Christmas alone and that there is no such thing as a “Holiday Tree,” that it has always been called a Christmas tree! Pass this along to all your friends, churches, pastors, and e-mail lists! We really want to communicate with the ACLU!

The stimulus went right down the drain paying off the unions with tax dollars in exchange for union campaign contributions from the same tax dollars.
and the result is that we all get poorer and the democrats and their supporters get richer not because of their hard work or their successes, but because of us.
it is enough of the union payoffs and kickbacks. it is time to really change things back to the real american way, not the payoffs of special interest groups in exchange for voters and support.

Payroll Tax Holiday. Sounds like a good deal but it has to be paid for some way. Obama/Reid's way is to raise taxes on the rich. What this really means is that they want to take money from someone else; give it to the rest of us and then have us use it to pay our payroll tax. That is called wealth redistribution. Of course, they want to cut the middleman out and just take it directly from the rich but either way you look at it, they want to take from someone else and give it to another person who did nothing to earn it.

The Obama administration, spent over a year ramming through the hated Obamacare with dirty deals and union payoffs, they spent almost a trillion dollars in a big fat kickback to the unions for their support, the democrats created the crisis with the encouragement of sub prime mortgages in exchange for sweetheart loans and campaign contributions,

Even worse Obama and the democrats create and cover up the Fast and furious program which resulted in the death of a Us border agent, and when the congress investigates the incompetence and cover up by holder, he calls them racist.

the same corrupt attorney general that failed to prosecute one of the most blatant acts of voter intimidation in years.

http://biggovernment.com/awrhawkins/2011/12/1...

and lets not forget the green job scandals of taxdollars payoffs for contibutions to solyndra and others.

the incompetent response to the gulf oil crisis,

the millions spent in extravagant vacations and separate planes for obama and his wife,

the million dollar date night,

the shout outs in response to terror attack at ft hood,

the lives lost because of his using war strategy in afghanistan to make political points,

the lawsuit against boeing in north carolina,

the endless golf, basketball and concerts while the rest of us suffered unemployed,

the attacking of americans who dared protest his incompetence and corruption by attacking the tea party,

the attack on the cambridge police who obozo said acted stupidly,

the lawsuits against the state of arizona,

obozo the buffoon is clearly the worst president in the history of america.

This payroll tax holiday is just another payoff, we all could use the money but what we need more is jobs, and job friendly policies, this will not help create any jobs, and since it will add to the debt it ultimately will cause us to pay it back with interest in the future resulting in higher taxes and or fees that will hurt jobs in the future.

Oh yeah the 2 black idiots should have been put down log a rabid dog. Any one trying to intimidate to vote for that piece of cht Obama should be put down as I said.
Let one of these piece of sht try that here? They would be sent home in a bag.
Lets see those losers try that again.
Mayne Real Americans need to step up and make a stand. Enough is enough already. The demolosers have divided our country so much that most people do not even see what they have done.
And the supporters of them are to stupid to even see what has taken place. They just go through life "puppeting" what bark olosers says. With no sense what so ever what they are saying or doing.
Sad when people have no common sense. And then the very same idiots cry about jobs. WTF seriously. Why can't they get it?

Obama and Holder will not hesitate to scream racism to shield their incompetence, just like Obama and the democrats attacked the TEA party for being racist so now does Holder attack the congress for questioning his incompetence.

"in a February 2009 speech to Justice Department employees marking Black History Month, Eric Holder said that "in things racial we have always been and I believe continue to be, in too many ways, essentially a nation of cowards" and that "we, as average Americans, simply do not talk enough with each other about race."

Talking about race is one thing, pointing fingers and crying racism is quite another.

We would suggest, Mr. Holder, it is you who are the coward."
