Thankful Thursday - Warning....Political rant involved

I am thankful for the sacred privilege of free speech. However, this bothers me

That's my flag. I feel like someone graffiti tagged my home.

I am thankful for those who are serving to protect our country and our freedoms. I'm trying to understand why Obama is still holding off? His top general has been asking for months and yet he is still thinking about it? If the top general, who by the way was CHOSEN by BO, and who is consulted constantly by war strategists, outlines a plan for the current conflict, why does the commander-in-chief balk at his recommendations? What message does this send those hard working men and women who daily place themselves in harms way for us and for freedom?

I am extremely thankful for my health care coverage. I have worked hard the past several years to get my cholesterol levels and other measurable health numbers to a better than average healthy status. Therefore, I pay accordingly. I am thankful that I have some CONTROL over which doctors I see and when I can see them. I am thankful that I have been, in a sense, rewarded for healthy living. However, this plan not just frightens me, but angers me.
Closed doors? How does she expect it is going to be paid for? Likely by us hard working Americans that do everything we possibly can to save, live within our means, pay our taxes and overall play by the rules. I donate to charity on a monthly basis and assist and aid where and when I can. But I choose. I do not want to have myself taxed out the wazoo so that the government can decide who gets the assistance. Being fundamentally opposed to abortion, I also don't think I should have to pay for it. If I earn my money, don't I get a say as to what I do with it?

I'm thankful that I have a personal blog that I can vent on about these things from time to time.

What are you thankful for today?

I'm thankful I found your blog so I could read your rant. And I secretly really like when people call him BO!

Yeah, I hope we will continue be ABLE to blog about stuff like this. . .

The Democrat blogger totally missed the point that Armstrong was making, that just because something may be legal, that doesn't make it moral or ethical. It's about respresenting the history of the United States to our youth, who I am sure this type of ad is targeting, and condoning the desecration of the symbol of our country. People like Leonard the Blogger have such an arrogant attitude towards people who believe in right and wrong. That they are somehow better than everyone else because they don't have any boundaries between them. Their idea of right and wrong is non-existant, as far as I can tell.

Thanks for letting ME rant!

I'm thankful I had NOTHING on my agenda today and was able to have fun with kids, clean, and blog. I'm thankful for people who care enough to blog about politics because it keeps me in the loop.

I have to say, I am thankful for you and your blog! :)
I am wondering WHEN BO will announce he is sending troops to Afghanistan. They are leaving by buses here from Camp Lejeune.
But I have to agree with FOX. It is all political..he will NOT announce it before some crucial elections in November because politics are more important than lives or the truth or even this country. He is hellbent on destroying it ALL.
IF it is true, the desecrated flag is on the final list, ya have to admit it is ironic...that is EXACTLY what this health care plan means to America. I truly hope the America I know and dearly love is still around in 2012. If America is dumb enough to vote this puppet back in, we need to find somewhere new to call home.
Actually, I think that will seal the deal on us putting in mission papers for out of country.
I have GOT to get signed up for spanish!! ;) love ya BFC!!

I cannot believe they're even considering that video. I find it highly offensive and know most of America will too.

I am very thankful for my health insurance and healthcare too. Every year at this time Luvpilot's employer lets us review our plan and make any changes we want to, deciding how much or how little coverage we want. I am very thankful for that option.

I just heard the BO say that he is happy that this new plan will not cost us any money and will reduce the deficit. I actually laughed out loud.
