“The Welfare Kid” PDF Print E-mail
Written by Jimmy Cook   
Tuesday, August 21, 2012

Some have dubbed President Obama “The Welfare Kid” because of his liberal give-a-ways to welfare recipients.  President Clinton cut out much of the waste in welfare and made it mandatory that those receiving welfare had to work.  But a new day has dawned and those on the welfare roll have increased in numbers with 46 percent of Americans getting food stamps.  Furthermore, under the Obama Administration, work is no longer required.  Reading a book is considered sufficient for one to receive welfare.  I can’t help wondering if the reading of playboy magazine qualifies one to receive welfare.  We are told that 40 percent of Americans are now keeping up 60 percent of the American population.  Taking from those who work and giving it to those that don’t is the order of the day.

            While the U.S. is only 400 years old, she has outdone the other nations economically.  France and Britton are 1000 years old, China 3000 and Egypt 5000, but the U.S. economic history is far beyond these nations.  All this time the U.S. has been leading the word politically and economically.  However, the last 4 years have been a disaster.

            No work, only play, has been the cry of a socialist administration.  Four more years of the same philosophy and America will be on its way to becoming a third world
Liberals Choke on Chicken Bones PDF Print E-mail

All the way from D.C., across the Potomac, down through Virginia, Tennessee and Kentucky, multiplied millions were awakened from their sleep to the sound of coughing, gagging, and other unknown sounds. What in the world?  Some asked. It was not until the next morning, when their televisions were turned on to Breaking News which read:  Countless millions of liberals almost choked to death last night when they heard that their plot against Chick-Fil-A had boomeranged. The worst part, reported by some, though not confirmed, was a ‘certain congressman’ sitting on the steps of the Capital, flapping his arms like a chicken, and crowing like a rooster and chanting, “Don’t buy chicken at Chick-Fil-A.”  Upon hearing that the liberal’s boycott against Chick-Fil-A had failed and multiplied millions were rushing to Chick-Fil-A stores, according to one source, the congressman cried, whipped out his cell phone, and called his new wife and said, “honey, get over here quick, we’ve got to organize a “kissing party” in the front of all Chick-Fil-A stores.”  It is difficult for me to believe this story.  Perhaps it was started by the Tea Party.  However, since the congressman said two days before the financial collapse of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mack, both were in strong financial condition, I guess I can believe this story.

President Obama, that congressman, and others are killing the Democrat Party with the promotion of same sex marriage. Sixty five percent of all democrats, according to one poll, now support same sex marriage. 

In my opinion, the only way the liberals can clear their throats of chicken bones is by a big dose of Bible knowledge; read Leviticus chapter 18:22 and Romans chapter 1:24-27.  Of course, they don’t believe the Bible, for if they did they would know that marriage is between a man and a woman.

By the way, in the future I’m going to eat at Chick-Fil-A more often.  Liberals, your little ploy against the owner of Chick-Fil-A stores may cost you your election.  Stupidity is the mother of failure. 

In Loving Memory of Veronica Snow PDF Print E-mail

The loss of a child is one of the most devastating tragedies that can occur in the human family. It is even worse when it is a small child whose life was cut short as result of a tragic accident. Veronica was only three years old when the accident occurred, and for eleven years she had struggled to survive, but on Sunday morning, July 8, 2012, she had to relinquish that struggle, leaving behind a grieving family and friends. My family has been very close to Veronica’s parents through the years, and we’ve watched the past eleven years as little Veronica suffered and as her parents sought countless medical opportunities to help her. Her parents, sisters, and other family members, along with many friends, loved this sweet little girl and prayed and cried, hoping she would recover, but God knows best and it was time to cease her suffering and to rest for all eternity. The times I visited Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital to see Veronica, her mother was always there. When I drove to Lexington, Kentucky to see her in the Children’s Hospital there, her mother was there. All the family worked hard to care for Veronica and we extend to them our deepest sympathy. The following scripture should be a big encouragement to all: “For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared to the glory that shall be revealed to us” (Romans 8:18). The suffering is over for Veronica and the memories of her smiles and the big tears in her eyes will never end so long as her family and friends live. “The Lord bless thee, and keep thee: The Lord make his face shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee: The Lord lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.” (Numbers 6:24-26)

Comparing Obama to Lincoln PDF Print E-mail

Tuesday, May 8, 2012

What arrogant elitist or egghead professor conjured up the comparison of Obama to Lincoln?  This is the biggest joke of the twenty-first century.  The culprit must believe that the American people are so dense that political wool can be pulled over their eyes with little difficulty.  What gall to compare Obama’s miserable four years of administration to that of Lincoln’s great years of freeing the slaves and unifying the states of this great land?

            Mr. Obama is hot and heavy on the 2012 campaign trail, begging for just four more years to carry out his plans.  Four more years, in my opinion, would finish America “Me thinks he fiddles while Rome burns!”

            Compare Obama to Lincoln and here is what we get:

            Lincoln freed the slaves and unified the States of America; whereas, Obama has introduced the weak-minded to socialism and divided the country.

            Lincoln got his education from borrowed books beside the light of a fireplace; whereas, Obama got his education in the back rooms of Chicago politicians where he learned every trick of the political trade.

            Lincoln gave every poor man forty acres and a mule; whereas, Obama gave so-called stimulus money to every wealthy banker and manufacturer.

            Lincoln promoted the one God; whereas, Obama promotes both Jehovah God and Allah.  Sorry, Mr. Obama, there is just one God (Ephesians 4:5).

            Lincoln stood in the fields of Gettysburg and delivered his famous Gettysburg Address, calling for peace and unity in his beloved America; whereas, Obama stood not in one but many foreign countries and condemned his own country, apologizing for it.  To run down your own country to your enemies is unforgiveable.

            Sorry, I see no comparison between Obama and Lincoln unless it is the fact that both belong to the male species.

            Americans cannot afford to give Obama four more years.  I think too much of my grandchildren to vote to give him four more years.

            God Bless America!

Look What Radical Liberals Are Doing To Our America PDF Print E-mail

This is our America.  It is the land in which we were born.  It is the land of freedom, of opportunity, but radical liberals are seeking to deprive us of our many freedoms and to micro-manage the lives of the weak that had rather trade their freedoms and opportunities for a “mess of pottage” and wait for the mailman or an electronic devise to reward them.  Folks, no “piece of the pie” is worth losing one’s freedom and opportunity.  Those who seek to rob us of these great blessings are enemies of this country and all who have shed their blood for it.

            Here is one graphic illustration of an upcoming dictatorship.  Last week a marine for ten years was discharged from the Corps because he criticized Obama, and was denied a portion of the income coming to him.   In other words, he was discharged for exercising his constitutional rights, which includes the right to criticize, even the President of the United States.  However, it never includes the right to lie as the present politicians are doing in D.C.

            What about our two Senators from Tennessee and our Representative taking the lead in defending this marine?  No policy supersedes the Constitution and don’t try to suggest it does.  Let every American citizen defend him.

            In June of last year it was found that only a few school children have learned about the history of this country.  Instead, book publishers have been pressured into rewriting history to further the goals of the left socialist agenda.  They publish books with no moral values, and attempt to paint radical Muslims, and not Christians, as the ones who have been persecuted.  These same radical liberals are responsible for advancing the cause of the so-called “Gay Rights” in school systems.  If radical liberal fanatics control our educational system for more than two generations, whey will suffocate the truth about this great land.

            Many of our schools of higher learning have been infiltrated by leftist radicals who lecture our young people on ways to bring about the economic and social collapse of America.

            How long, oh how long are we going to let this radical liberal regime and its cadres control the education of our children from elementary school through college?

            Please, God, deliver us from four more years of these anti-American politicians who want to change America into their godless image.  I read of a politician who had changed his views rather radically who was congratulated by a colleague, who said, “I’m glad you’ve seen the light.”

            “I didn’t see the light,” was the reply, “I felt the heat.”

            When the politicians “feel the heat” things will get better.  It is up to us to apply the heat.

            God bless America!  The real and only God is always spelled G-O-D.  There is one God (Ephesians 4:5).
