Hey Obama!! Who’s in Charge Here? Ain’t You?

                                     obama-speech-e1342050505906

Five times now Obama has said he didn’t know about things that were happening until he read about it in the media. 1) He didn’t know about Fast and Furious until he heard about it in the news, 2) He didn’t know about Benghazi until he heard about it in the media, 3) He didn’t know about the IRS targeting conservatives until he heard about in the media, 4) He didn’t know about the bad  Obamacare roll out until he heard about it in the media and  now  5) He didn’t know about the VA scandal until he heard about it  in the media.

Hey Obama, Who’s minding the store? Who’s in charge if you don’t know about these things affecting you and your administration? Of course he knew about each and every one of these things and probably was the brains behind them, but he never shows any accountability or blame.

In the latest VA scandal which Sean Hannity brought to light with his report with FOX reporter Ainsley Earhart, Obama  feins shock and disgust saying he was “madder than hell.” Meanwhile   FOX  has shown clips of Obama knowing about this back in 2008 and promising each succeeding   year after to do something about it and he never did. It is a known fact that Obama hates the military and has cut the military budget down to pre WW11 levels and that includes the VA. You don’t cut back on a firehouse just because you have a few years of no fires. It’s there for protection in case you need it. So it is with the VA. What you’re seeing n the VA is a microcosim of what to expect with Obamcare.  If the gov’t can’t effectively run a VA hospital then how do you expect them to run the country’s healthcare?

Nancy (We have to pass it so we know what’s in it) Pelosi now blames the fact that we had two unnecessary wars that caused all these injuries and wouldn’t have these problems if not for these wars. Hey Nancy shut up!!!! These vets were defending our country and put their lives on the line for us so don’t go blaming George Bush again.

Blaming Bush is all the dems have now because they know people don’t want more of what they’ve been giving us and elections are coming up so they blame Bush for the VA scandal. Get over it Nancy and get some responsibility in back of you. There is plenty of blame to go around as  Bush made s some cut backs in the VA also and back in Clinton’s day he cut back on vet beds in favor of AIDS patients, but the fact that Obama said in 2008 that he was going to take care of the problem and never did anything about it then the current  blame should fall on his shoulders, but he never heard about this until he read about it in the media. There was a cartoon in today’s N.Y Post that showed Obama writing a letter to a vet in the VA saying, ”I was sorry to hear about your experience with the VA. Hospital System. If only CNN had informed us sooner. ”So hey Barack!! Who’s minding the store?  Who’s in charge there? Ain’t you?

Tommy James and the Shondells in Concert!!

300_1995211.jpg (300×284)

 Many years ago I had a friend, who I still keep in occasional contact with, who had a fabulous oldies band I used to follow around. A highlight of his band was when he did his famous Tommy James trilogy. He would start out with James’ hit “I think We’re Alone Now” then segue into “Hanky-Panky” and end with a rousing “Mony Mony” which got everyone really dancing wildly on the dance floor. Well tonite I finally got to see Tommy James in concert at Bergen PAC in Englewood, N.J.

Tommy James is now 67 years old and still has what it takes. I’ve seen many concerts  of people who were around in the 60’s when I was  a young lad and today they are in their 60’s and 70’s and still exude the same sound and energy.  If music keeps you young then I want to be in a rock ‘n’ roll band   like Tommy James and the Shondells.  Tommy mentioned that he was glad to be performing there in Jersey  since he grew up in Cedar Grove which is only a few towns away.

Tommy opened Saturday’s concert with his hit song “Draggin’ the Line” followed by his hit “Chrystal Blue Persuasion” followed by “Getting’ Together.” It was truly a rockin’ enjoyable feel good fun concert albeit too short being an hour and ten minutes. Tommy was backed by his Shondells who were a really terrific band consisting of lead guitar, bass guitar, rhythm guitar,  Hammond organ and synthesizer. Tommy is the only original member of theShondells and played guitar  also the entire evening as he did songs I had completely forgotten about until I heard them such as “Crimson and Clover” and “Sweet Cherry Wine.”

Tommy has a best selling  book out called  “Me, the Mob and The Music” which chronicles  his life  with his record label Roulette Records which was owned by  mobster Morris Levy of the Genovese crime family which Tommy didn’t know until after he signed with Roulette. His book has recently been made into a feature film and as Tommy told about the movie he played what he said was the closing song  of the movie as the credits roll by which was a slower and beautiful version of his hit “I Think We’re Alone Now.’ He later would do the regular faster upbeat version which got the audience hopping and dancing in the aisles.

At one point Tommy did “Hanky Panky” which really got the audience roaring in delight and then a really long version of “Mony Mony.” During this song the band did a really great long instrumental  interlude  while Tommy went into the audience and kissed the girls and signed autographs.

The band was superb and lead guitarist excellent. Tommy closed the show with  ”Sweet Cherry Wine” another hit I had  forgotten about until I heard it. For a really fun feel good concert check out Tommy James and the Shondells if they come to a theater near you.

Check out the videos I have below. Although they are from 1990’s and 2000 that is exactly how he looked and sounded Saturday night although he is just a bit chunkier now 🙂

Ann Coulter is Right

Ann Coulter, TwitterRecently Michelle O. Posted a picture of herself with a sad face on Instagram holding a sign that read “Bring Our Girls back”. First of all they aren’t OUR girls, they’re Nigeria’s girls. Secondly she compared the Nigerian girls to her own girls just like Obama said if he had a son he would look like Treyvon.  So Ann Coulter printed up a sign with her with  a sad face that says “Bring our country back. Well the liberal left wing Huffington Post and MSNBC who never say anything positive about any republican or conservative had a field day attacking her with a headline that said “Ann Coulter’s hashtag blows up in her face.” Well that started a firestorm of verbal attacks between pro and anti Ann Coulter forces. I happen to agree with her and the comment below:

Myke 3 minutes ago

Ann has the guts to call a spade a spade. This administration has trashed our reputation around the world, our economy, and now our health care system, not to mention having inept, corrupt government agencies like the NSA and the IRS. Are we better off than we were 6 years ago? If you’re honest, the answer is a VERY LOUD, HELL NO WE AREN’T. Vote straight Republican, you’re better off in the long run for sure!!!!!!!

This is the most corrupt administration we’ve ever had. It’s tearing our country apart with the greatest division ever. We are viewed as weak in the world, China and other countries’ economies are ahead of ours. Our military is down to pre WW11 levels while other countries are building up. Our lives are being controlled by Obamcare with all our medical records going in one government central computer, cameras on every street corner spying on us, gays and now transgenders in the military, all our rights being trampled on in the name of the greater good and  the gov’t knows what’s best for us,1 in 3 people are unemployed,50 million people on food stamps and a 17 trillion dollar debt and counting. Yes I agree with Ann. BRING OUR COUNTRY BACK!!!! Charity begins at home. We have young people kidnapped and missing here every day, Syria has young girls being kidnapped, Iran does too. I wonder if the girls were from Great Britain kidnapped by a terror group there or if they were IsreaIi girls would Michelle feel the same? How come she and her husband didn’t show the same attitude when our ambassador and three others were killed in Benghazi or how about asking for that young boy kidnapped and held in a prison in Mexico because he accidentally drove over the border? If they were the same color as the Nigerian girls would things be different? Meanwhile as usual, Obama fell back on his four point style of governance: deny everything, admit nothing, blame others, and make counter accusations. Yes I agree with Ann, BRING OUR COUNTRY BACK!!!!

Random Thoughts By An Angry Patriotic American!!!

USA Patriotic

unemployment is patriotic.
Patriotic Eagle

“ Uncle Sam put your name on the top of his list / The statue of liberty started shaking her fist /  And it’s going to be hell / when you hear Mother Freedom start ringing her bell / And it will feel like the whole wide world is raining down on you  / Brought to you courtesy of the red, white and blue”__Tobey Keith-(Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue, The Angry American Song.)

That’s what should have happened in Benghazi, but this wimpy anti-American administration with evil  political agendas like saving the president’s rear end, chose a different path and sacrificed the lives of four people.

Boehner has  appointed Rep. Tre Gowdy to head the investigative committee on Benghazi. Gowdy is an excellent  choice. He is a former prosecuter who never lost a case and is a very tough one to boot. He’ll get to the bottom of this and hopefully make people pay. Some senator is calling for the democrats to boycott the hearings. By boycotting the hearings that shows they are even more  guilty than ever. Just like Obama making a joke at the WHCD about the republicans will say Hillary was born in Kenya.That makes him look more  guilty to me about his real birth place. He’s not even a citizen because his mother never registered him when she brought him here after he was born.  

 Carl Bernstein says Benghaziis not as big as Watergate. WHAT???? What have you been smoking Carl???Bernstein is wrong on this. Benghazi is worse than Watergate because nobody died in Watergate. Benghazi was a deliberate cover-up to allow Obama to get in office in an election year since he said Al Queda was on the run and they weren’t. Four people were killed when troops could have been sent in to help them. They were only an hour away!!!  Instead they came up with this phony story about a You-tube video that hardly anyone saw and sent Susan Rice on five Sunday shows to perpetrate that lie and back it up. Obama ordered the director arrested and sent to jail for a year. Who told the troops to stand down? Where was Obama that night when the intelligence people were watching it unfold real time in the situation room of the White House? Obama lied and our ambassador and seals died………..In an article in the New Yorker Magazine, Obama biographer David Remick says Obama told him that the world disappoints him. What a narcissistic ego maniac. The world disappoints  him? I guess he does think he’s the messiah.  Also this biographer says a lot has been accomplished in spite of that. I say what has been accomplished?  Our credit rating  has  been dropped, we’ve fallen behind  China and other countries in our economy, one in three are unemployed, over 50 million people on food stamps, five million have lost their doctors and health insurance. Yeah I guess a lot has been accomplished.………………….Recently the faculty of Rutgers University disinvited Condaleeza Rice from appearing at their graduation commencement  and held demonstrations outside opposing her on grounds she supported the war in Iraq. I saw some of these kids being interviewed on FOX. I have never seen so much hate speech coming from people who are supposed to be opposed to hate speech. What did they do? Invite her so they could uninvite her and continue to blame Bush for Iraq? I would like to remind these brainless, brainwashed idiots that before blaming Bush for lying  about Sadam having WMD’s like they love to do, that Germany said he had them, France said he had them, Saudi Arabia said he had them, England said he had them, Iran said he had them so don’t go blaming Bush. We also found tons of cannisters of Serin gas  that Sadam used on his own people where he killed millions, but the media doesn’t report that and they don’t teach that in colleges today.  Condi was very gracious in her letter declining to come and showed real class. Something these kids could learn about. Condi is a brilliant women having been sec. of state under two presidents,holds a PhD. and President of Stanford Univ. She did it all on her own without affirmative action and without the help of the government like these kids today support. She is an excellent example of what these kids could do after they graduate. It was their loss. I would have loved to hear her speak.

Some of these students who were protesting were Iraqi female students in their head  scarfes protesting. One kid made some sense  by saying Condi should have come and just ignored the protests. That would have shown them up, but  I think she did the right  and gracious thing.  Yes they are as Rush would say, “Young skulls full of Mush.” …….And in closing I would like to mention these sentences to ponder a friend sent to me

1.    We are advised to NOT judge ALL Muslims by the actions of a few lunatics, but we are encouraged to judge ALL gun owners by the actions of a few lunatics.   Funny how that works.

And here’s another one worth considering .

2.   Seems we constantly hear about how Social Security is going to run out of money.   How come we never hear about welfare or food stamps running out of money?  What’s interesting is the first group “worked for” their money, but the second didn’t.

Think about it….. Last but not least

3.   Why are we cutting benefits for our veterans, no pay raises for our military and cutting our army to a level lower than before WWII, but we are not stopping the payments to illegal aliens.  This is what illegals receive monthly, $1500.00 per child,  $500 for housing, Food Stamps, Free education including college and the right to vote.
