Top 10 Reasons to Vote Democratic

10. I’ll vote Democrat because I can’t wait for college football season to be delayed or cancelled because the student athletes are union employees.

9. I’ll vote Democrat because I believe oil company’s profits of 4% on a gallon of gas are obscene, but the government taxing the same gallon of gas at 15% isn’t.

8. I’ll vote Democrat because I believe the government will do a better job of spending the money I earn than I would.

7. I’ll vote Democrat because Freedom of Speech is fine as long as nobody is offended by it.

6. I’ll vote Democrat because I’m way too irresponsible to own a gun, and I know that my local police are all I need to protect me from murderers and thieves. I am also thankful that we have a 911 service that get police to your home in order to identify your body after a home invasion.

5. I’ll vote Democrat because I’m not concerned about millions of babies being aborted so long as we keep all death row inmates alive and comfy.

4. I’ll vote Democrat because I think illegal aliens have a right to free health care, education, and Social Security benefits, and we should take away the Social Security from those who paid into it.

3. I’ll vote Democrat because I believe that businesses should NOT be allowed to make profits for themselves. They need to break even and give the rest away to the government for redistribution as the Democrats see fit.

2. I’ll vote Democrat because I believe liberal judges need to rewrite the Constitution every few days to suit some fringe kooks who would never get their agendas past the voters.

And the Number One reason I’ll vote Democrat is:

1. I’ll vote Democrat because I think that it’s better to pay billions for oil to people who hate us, but not drill our own because it might upset some endangered beetle, gopher, fish or frog.

America: Imagine a World Without Her

We are in a crisis of leadership during this time. Our leaders actively push to shrink America’s footprint in the world. They do not believe in ‘American exceptionalism’. This movie powerfully reveals the truth of American history and principles of which our nation was founded upon. America has been tricked and misled by the left and the radicals. This film restores a patriotic pride for the American people and embodies a new hope to build our country up instead of tear it down. We have lost our sense of pride for our home. This generation looks at the Flag and doesn’t fully understand what it means. That has to change, and it is up to us. Decline is a choice we have to make but so is liberty. Let’s make the right one.

 

P.S. To the government, which is violating my Fourth Amendment rights to be secure from unreasonable searches of my cell phone and computer, take that!

Happy Birthday Princess Diana!

July 1st marks the birth date of the late Princess Diana of Whales.

“In March 1997, Mario Testino photographed Diana for a Vanity Fair article promoting her charity clothing auction. “I wanted Diana dressed in eveningwear but in her mind to be wearing jeans,” he explained. “She looked so happy and fresh and sure of herself. It was just laughter and laughter and laughter and laughter and laughter.”[5]

That July, Diana began a relationship with Dodi al Fayed, whose father, Mohamed al Fayed, owned Harrods and the Paris Ritz. She and Dodi were at the Ritz on Saturday night, August 30, 1997; when they left, he ordered their driver to speed up to elude paparazzi. The car crashed in the Seine Tunnel. Dodi and the driver died at the accident scene, but Diana died in a nearby hospital at 4:15 a.m. on August 31.”

President Obama and illegal immigration

ONE OF PRESIDENT OBAMA’S first moves toward trying to ‘fix’ the US immigration system without Congress will almost certainly be to expand on his 2012 executive order postponing deportation for potentially millions of young illegal immigrants, say experts on both sides of the debate.

Summer Skin Care

mario-badescu-keratoplast-cream-soap

Mario Badescu is one of my favorite skin care brands. I alternate between his Keratoplast Cream Soap and Seaweed Cleansing Soap. They are both very easy on the skin and leave the face feeling moisturized.

Keratoplast is a natural, botanical ingredient that reduces redness associated with broken capillaries and extreme sensitivity. This gentle cleanser will remove light makeup while soothing redness and irritation from the skin, leaving it soft and smooth. Best when used with our Keratoplast Cleansing Lotion.

The Seaweed cleanser is mild and gently exfoliating, this thick and creamy cleanser contains mineral-rich, anti-inflammatory Seaweed Extract. Great for all skin types, even sensitive, for daily cleansing, and light makeup removal. Easy rinsing formula.
