I received this email from a Texas cousin. Wonder if any of these images will pass through Barry Soetoro’s mind when he sits down for chat with the leader of the Islamic Republic of Iran?
DID THE HOLOCAUST HAPPEN?
Of course it did. And it’s happening now in places like Zimbabwe , Sudan , North Korea , and terrorists in Pakistan want it to happen here in the USA .
Never forget what one madman can do when given absolute power….
It ‘s a matter of history that when Supreme Commander of the Allied Forces, General Dwight Eisenhower, found the victims of the death camps, he ordered all possible photographs to be taken, and for the German people from surrounding villages to be ushered through the camps and even made to bury the dead.
He did this because he said in words to this effect: ‘Get it all on record now – get the films – get the witnesses – because somewhere down the track of history some b*stard will get up and say that this never happened’
These photos were taken in Germany by James Emison Chanslor, an Army Master Sergeant who served in World War II from 1942 until 1945.

‘All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing’
This week, the UK removed The Holocaust from its school curriculum because it ‘offended’ the Muslim population which claims it never occurred.
This is a frightening portent of the fear that is gripping the world and how easily each country is giving in to it.
It is now more than 60 years after the Second World War in Europe ended.
This e-mail is being sent as a memorial chain, in memory of the
six million Jews, 20 million Russians, 10 million Christians and 1,900 Catholic priests who were murdered, massacred, raped, burned, starved and humiliated with the German and Russian peoples looking the other way!
Now, more than ever, with Iran , among others, claiming the Holocaust to be ‘a myth,’ it is imperative to make sure the world never forgets.
I don’t think the world has forgotten. It just stopped caring. I wonder if it ever cared? Maybe it is like more recent history. Some folks don’t think 9/11/01 was such a big deal.

I’m sure everyone’s seen CNN’s Susan Roesgen having a little hissy fit at the Chicago Tea Party.
The crowd turned on her when she was rude and condescending to an attendee. “I think you get the general tenor of this,” she said. “It’s anti-government, anti-CNN since this is highly promoted by the right-wing conservative network Fox.”
Of course, if the Chicago Tea Party attendees had been dressed in pink costumes, burning the American flag and hadn’t bathed in God knows when, Mz. Roesgen would have knocked them down en masse and licked their faces like a new puppy tasting its mother’s milk for the first time.
In the (snark, snark) Too-Good-Not-To-Be-True Category, it seems that Mz. Roesgen applied for employment TWICE in 2005 at the “right wing conservative network Fox”.

At last something for the bottom feeders of society-those that leach off tax payers and charitable good will-who never learned how to string a grammatically correct sentence together-who think using the word ‘fuck’ as a noun, adjective and verb is socially acceptable in polite society-that never take the time to get much of an education because they’re too busy breeding:
Here’s hoping the Soetoro Universal Health Care Rationing covers the cost!

I guess it all depends on what the meaning of “is”, is.
As President Barack Obama works to sell the American people on a sweeping agenda of domestic spending and policy changes, he’s relying on three men who have gone through neither Senate confirmation nor cable news spin cycles.
Data from pollsters Joel Benenson and Paul Harstad has become increasingly important to shaping the White House’s message as the crucial battle over the president’s budget intensifies.
Elements of Obama’s approach bear the hallmarks of message testing, like the introduction of the words “recovery” and “reinvestment” to rebrand the “stimulus” package, and aides said the polling has focused almost entirely on selling policy, not on measuring the president’s personal appeal.
A source familiar with the data said a central insight of more recent polling had been that Americans see no distinction between the budget and the popular spending measures that preceded it, and that the key to selling the budget has been to portray it as part of the “recovery” measures.
Uh oh! It looks like Americans are understanding the “distinction” between “I$” and “is“.

For 8 years, if Pres. Bush sneezed there was a chorus of, “What kind of message are we sending to the world?” “This administration has damaged the image of the U.S. around the world!”
Candidate for president Barry Soetoro promised to “reboot America’s image” among the world’s Muslims and that one of his top priorities would be to work to repair America’s reputation worldwide. In that vain, he granted his first interviewas leader of the free world to al-Arabiya where he apologized profusely for the U.S. being responsible for Islamic serial mass murderers incinerating a few thousand Infidels on U.S. soil.
It was especially poignant when a sitting president of the United States of America met Saudi Arabia’s King and bowed in deference to his “majesty“.
After the U.S. elected its first black president, the first black U.S. Attorney General and former Fannie Mae lobbyist, Eric Holder, said publicly, “Though this nation has proudly thought of itself as an ethnic melting pot, in things racial, we have always been and we — I believe continue to be in too many ways essentially a nation of cowards.”
Brazil’s President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva heard you Mr. Holder. Speaking in Brasília at a joint press conference with Gordon Brown, the UK prime minister, Mr Lula da Silva told reporters: “This crisis was caused by the irrational behaviour of white people with blue eyes, who before the crisis appeared to know everything and now demonstrate that they know nothing.” This, of course, was music to Race Separatist in Chief, Barry Obama, who couldn’t wait to drool all over him. During a lunch at the Group of 20 summit in London, Obama shook hands with President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva and said: “This is my man, right here. I love this guy.” I can hardly wait for Barry’s next book.
Then, there’s our neighbor to the south, Mexico, where a bloody drug war is happening and spilling across the border into the U.S., which wouldn’t have started in the first place if the drug lords didn’t receive 90% of their firearms from the U.S. It isn’t relevant that this figure is a bold-faced LIE made up of whole cloth from the Soetoro administration. What is relevant is that the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution is merely a “suggestion” and should be overturned.
The icing on the cake is probably yet to come, but Barry’s speech to a group of students from France and Germany comes close. “In America, there is a failure to appreciate Europe’s leading role in the world. “Instead of celebrating your dynamic union and seeking to partner with you to meet common challenges, there have been times where America has shown arrogance and been dismissive, even derisive.”
Now, that’s a statement from someone who is a world’s authority on arrogance, dismissiveness and derision.
So what is the message Pres. Barry Soetoro is sending to the world?
THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA IS A LOUSY COUNTRY, FULL OF LOUSY PEOPLE.

From On High had an excellent take on this story-kind of a Clintonesque what “is” is.
WASHINGTON (AP) – One of President Barack Obama’s campaign pledges on taxes went up in puffs of smoke Wednesday.
The largest increase in tobacco taxes took effect despite Obama’s promise not to raise taxes of any kind on families earning under $250,000 or individuals under $200,000.
“I can make a firm pledge,” he said in Dover, N.H., on Sept. 12. “Under my plan, no family making less than $250,000 a year will see any form of tax increase. Not your income tax, not your payroll tax, not your capital gains taxes, not any of your taxes.”
He repeatedly vowed “you will not see any of your taxes increase one single dime.”
Now in office, Obama, who stopped smoking but has admitted he slips now and then, signed a law raising the tobacco tax nearly 62 cents on a pack of cigarettes, to $1.01. Other tobacco products saw similarly steep increases.
The extra money will be used to finance a major expansion of health insurance for children.
His detailed campaign plan stated that his proposed improvement in health insurance and health technology “is more than covered” by raising taxes on the wealthy alone. It was not based on raising the tobacco tax.
Not one dime more than this:
Another source of revenue comes from auctioning rights to carbon emissions, raising $646 billion over 10 years. This is a regressive tax, meaning that it falls hardest on those at the lower end of the income scale. Despite Obama’s promise that those earning under $250,000 won’t pay another dime in taxes, carbon-intensive companies are going to pass along the extra tax to consumers.
If Barry and the rest of the stagflation supporters want to tax something to raise cash for children’s health care, how about a big, fat increase on PORN and LABOR INDUCED PARTIAL BIRTH ABORTION?!
No way! Not in this lifetime! Let’s not get crazy, here. Children don’t need taxpayer-funded health care that bad! This is still America, after all!

Free to good home. Excellent guard dog.
Owner cannot afford to feed him anymore, as there are no more drug dealers, thieves, murderers, or child molesters left in the neighborhood for him to eat.
He’s known as ‘Holy Shit.’

Once upon a time there was a child who grew up in a loving family, but felt that he, somehow, didn’t fit in.
When he had grown up, he moved to the Big City. There he met a man who made him rich and famous.
He bought some Greek columns with some of his riches.
Along the way, he took up with some shady characters
And found his “Special Purpose”
But he soon found out that he was in over his head and lost all his riches
Because he wasn’t smart enough to learn this:

Fox Business and Fox News are reporting that they have obtained 5 emails through the FOIA between the Bush Administration and AIG concerning executive bonuses.
In a Nov. 5 e-mail to a Treasury and Federal Reserve officials, an outside attorney working on the transaction wrote, “We indicated that UST (United States Treasury) … wants to put in place a limitation on annual bonuses that assure that (AIG: 1.2104, -0.3796, -23.87%) executives/employees will not be enriched out of TARP funds.”
But the e-mail indicates AIG officials pushed back on the proposal. In a section of the e-mail discussing proposed limits on severance packages for AIG employees, the attorney wrote, “They were slack jawed at the idea of imposing the restriction throughout the entire population, especially worldwide.” AIG proposed that Treasury apply such limits “to a class of partners and senior partners (700).”
At another spot in the e-mail, the attorney said about AIG executives, “They will think about ways to deal with the ‘no enrichment’ point. In this connection they again raised the size of the applicable group and kept coming back to ‘700’ as a meaningful, and possibly workable, group for limitations.”
The e-mail also indicates that in their deliberations, government officials were concerned about the effect of compensation on recruiting and retaining AIG employees.
“We also indicated that all parties understand that the restrictions must be designed so that the business can be operated in a reasonable way, including in terms of recruitment and retention of employees,” the attorney wrote in the e-mail.
A key argument in AIG’s defense of its bonus practices has been that bonuses are needed to recruit and retain key employees.
A Treasury official in the department’s general counsel office, Stephen Albrecht, wrote in response to the attorney’s e-mail, “See below. Looks like AIG has some creative thinking to do, but we’ll need to decide to what extent we’re willing to bend.”
Government officials eventually decided to restrict compensation at AIG to just the top 75 company executives. The Treasury agreed to invest $40 billion into AIG.
