You just can't beat Rick Santelli. He is the spokesperson for all of us. Because he understands the economy and how it works. Most Americans don't. Liberals don't have a clue.
I am reminded of the old joke about the woman who received a notice of overdraft on her checking account. She immediately called the bank, and said, "how can I have an overdraft? I still have checks in my checkbook!"
Sixty percent of Americans now express a favorable opinion of Obama overall
Our country is made up of morons.
The so-called "cuts" to the extent there are ANY, are in the GROWTH of spending year-over-year. These idgets just can't stop pushing us all into eternal poverty and government collapse. God save us from communists and fools!
OBUMMER hates everything America stands for!he thinks we are3%of world population and we use25%of World Resources!we must be brought down a notch or 2.we are the world superpower and that's not fair so he wants 2 dismantle our military and missile systems!our Constitution calcium what he can't do but not what he can do,so it must destroyed!American traditions are not fair everything should be equal!everything that Ronald Reagan was 4 must be destroyed!you as a citizen have no idea what's good for you,only an intellect like me knows what's good for you or I am KING OBUMMER!
Stevie is an idiot and the fraud's water carrier. Santelli is a constant truth teller an relentlessly exposes the sham economists who attempt to justify endless money printing and the similarly endless increases in federal spending. He is the original 'Tea Partier'.
Liesman and Santelli go at each other's throats all the time. Liesman thinks he's all high and mighty (and moves up the ladder by kissing butt), whereas Rick is down to earth, on the trading floor like the average Joe, and speaks his mind often, tearing Liesman a new one every single time.
Let's think about this for a minute. There are record gun and ammo sales, record background checks for purchase and conceal and carry.....
And a whole bunch of sheriffs and veterans who have said, out loud, that we will go to war over this subject.
And the media gives him a pass.
I want to contribute something meaningful to this... but it's the same old thing. We've been saying how things would go... where we're heading and yet the clowns in Washington keep steering towards our doom. They easily get side tracked with gun control, immigration, and a slew of other less relevent topics and we never focus on fixing things... and likely won't while this monster is in the WH. And Boehner and McConnell have the collective spine of a jelly fish and the I.Q. of a box of rocks... and we keep sliding towards this.
America is becoming Benghazi... and we are the ambassador. There are warning signs all over... Al Queda flags over Washington... financial attacks through TARP and bailouts... and the spending and enemies increase. Why isn't anyone fixing this and stopping this madness? The iceberg is literally right in front of us. The S.S. Greece, the S.S. France and other ships that have already hit it and are sinking, and they keep telegraphing us about the danger and yet no one changes course. And we keep going...
I know (and believe in my soul) that Obama hates America and he and his communist cronies are deliberately doing all of this... but where are the Minutemen of today? Paul Revere has already rode out and we've been duely warned... our debt and destruction looms like a massive tidal wave racing towards the Poseidon and no one is battening down the hatches. How can our leadership allow this monster to follow through on this? He's like a 2-yr. old behind the wheel of a bulldozer (the size of Florida).
I know God is in control... but man... this requires serious faith in Him because it all looks so grim.
The left would dearly love it if you lost your faith...and so would Satan.
Remember this: Our Founding Fathers exhausted every single possibility for years before they went to war.
I think the pendulum will swing but maybe not until things are good and broken. Remember this as well people are stupid and Democrats because the smart people afford them that luxury. Yes stupidity is indeed a luxury. Sometimes people really need to be burned to learn. Hunker down and keep your faith because it is your shield.
But, unlike Job who never once under great pain, suffering, and temptation ever once even thought of renouncing God and so God returned to Job not just all that had been lost but ten times more; America many Decades ago kicked God to the curb and that does not bode well and here we are.
I'm just letting worry seep into the cracks lately. Nothing a little more church and faith can't fix.
As for America... well, we've got a lot of work to do. And God is with us.
The Lord is faithful to all who call upon Him and many are and have been praying about our nation. Our God will not abandon us. I for one am expecting the Lord to show up in the same grand and glorious fashion He has throughout history.
Totally agree and that is the reason you also see the public slowly swaying in the direction of the Palestinians.
Sir, it may be OUR time to freshen that tree of liberty with their blood and our own. It has happened before and we may be so honored as to be the next generation that must stand up for America and Old Glory and I will happily march to my death in an effort to restore THEM.
Some things are definitely worth fighting or dying for... and you just named the 3rd highest one on my list. I'll be there with ya. :)
Norway was an amazing place to visit...DURING the summer. We loved it.
But -40 is way way way toooo cold during the rest of the year. I just can’t take that kind of weather. I'm such a big baby ...when it comes to cold.
Yikes I shiver. And I can’t get past it.
I admit, I’m a wussy girl. There’s no other word for it. I can pretend, and work around it, but the bottom line is, I dislike, and pretty much hate cold weather. I know some of it is hard wired but I am here to tell you that no matter now much I try …its still COLD.
It been our "family" goal to climb the 7 summits...We really want to do Denali( Mc McKinley next) in Alaska. But it is weather sensitive and hard hard hard!!!.. …. In the mean time, we climb other peaks that spark our interest and try to have fun and amuse ourselves…. But the altitude can always be problematic…
Aha, so what you guys do sounds very much like the arctic/mountain training I did in February 1991 in Norway. -40, 10 feet of snow and a mountain that seems to go straight up. Yup, I've been there and done that. What I don't understand is why you guys do it voluntarily. That seems a bit crazy, even for me. ;-)
I can't profess to doing the kind of rock climbing that involves bare hands and many shear wall. Although I have crawled upside down or under an outcropping to get around…I don’t make a habit of going over the edge.
Those guys and gals are amazing. Their agility is incredible…and the mind games they must have to play. WOW. The thing about those athletes is they usually aren’t encumbered with tons of gear and a bunch of crap to sustain them. Whereas as we, as usual always pack tooo much. (AND then have to drag it up to 23,000 Feet!!!)
What we do is more climbing/mountaineering. AT VERY HIGH ALTITUDES, and often times at extreme tempertures.
Absolutely, we're more like family than friends what with your husbands experience. And I could carry you PLUS all my gear easy. You're a tiny little thing, aren't ya. LOL
Thanks Mike. The Right Scoop is a fantastic place.
I am very sorry for your pain. I know it very well. You know my husband served in the late 60's-70's and as he puts it, once a soldier, always a soldier... Its in your
heart. He still bristles at the way he and others were mistreated. SOOO he makes it his mission to welcome, and extend a handshake (or hug) any one in uniform he sees now.
By the way….I only use up 112 lbs of the 150 pound allotment…
When we have an open thread I will tell you about some of our climbing stories. We're doing the 7 Summits, and what a b*tch it is to LUG crap to the top.
Thanks again I'm proud to call you friend.
Again, it's just who God made me. I had a VERY BAD night with what was happening with Israel and Syria and Iran and if not for two of my Scoop Angels talking me down, I may have had an even worse night than I did.
That's how we will make it through these tough times. We'll lean on each other when one of us needs it. THAT is what the Marine Corps is all about, and I think We've already begun building the Esprit De Corps here at Scoop which we will need cause it's going to get worse before it gets better.
BTW, You are welcome and I mean it, too.
The only way we will all survive this is working together and I've got a bit more strength and experience than most so I am at your service, Dear.
Mike, I was floored by your comment. I cannot tell you how much it meant to me to see words like that when I opened the page. I had a rough day, and I didn't make it back to the RScoop for many hours- and honesty, your post really lifted my spirits.
Thanks for being such a good guy. I mean it sincerely.
Awwww. That's soooo sweet Mike. WOW. I appreciate that, and I will remember that you said that. Not so you will carry me, but because of how much it means to me.
I do too but I want a house full of little pitter patter feet running around and I'm already 42. Time marches on.
Perhaps it's just not in God's plan for me. My reward may be waiting on the other side. I can live with that too, if it is God's will.
You need more veteran friends, at least Marines. I would give my life for anyone on this web site without asking a single question and that goes for our moron trolls too.
THAT'S what makes this the greatest country in the history of the world.
BTW, THank You for the compliment, Dear Lady.
If I could only find one of you geographically close, single, attractive and looking for a real relationship, It'd be perfect.
Time to start practicing with your firearm of choice. I expect our side to be far better marksmen than theirs.
I'm feeling what you're saying Sober_Brother. God IS in control, but yeah, it'd be a little more encouraging to see some action against the evil stuff that' been going on- but we'll not see it coming from Washington. :-(
We need someone to climb up on that bulldozer and take the key away, but who? And when?
I don't want bloodshed like they're having in Egypt, but I have to say- the demonstrators there seem to have a lot more guts than Americans right now.
I'll (we'll be okay in the end) - Rom. 8:28. I'm just feeling a little frustrated at it all... every day these animals come at us with something new and there never seems to be enough traction on our side. No rest for the wicked right? Well, we need to be even more resilient and tenacious... I'm just building calluses for the long fight...
Regarding Egypt... the flow of weapons seems to come from the MB and of course, the good ol' U.S. of A. - thanks Washington. :(
Look to Texas to be the light. As to when...like your wedding dress and the man you marry you just know it.
