Welcome to the American Revolution II

Welcome to the American Revolution II
But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security.
"We face a hostile ideology global in scope, atheistic in character, ruthless in purpose and insidious in method..." and warned about what he saw as unjustified government spending proposals and continued with a warning that "we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex... The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist... Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals, so that security and liberty may prosper together."Dwight D.

White House Happy Hour F-bomb greeting

White House Happy Hour??????

What a great thing to be known for: Happy Hour and the F word
News White House 2007 current events today politics crime president bush religion money quality life war ratings business discoveries new trend
Are we paying people to drink and curse now?????


(F) Bombs Away at: Rep. Steven LaTourette (R-Ohio)

(F) Bombs Away at: White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel

Yep, cursing was new and forbidden right up until him. In fact, before Emmanuel, white house staff would only say "gosh" and "shucks," as reverence for their place of work so great. Of course, that is when the White House was inhabitable by proper God-fearing folk that loved America.

Rahm Emanuel got a dose of his own medicine at last night's weekly bipartisan White House mixer for members of Congress.

Rep. Steven LaTourette (R-Ohio), one of only a handful of Republicans who made the cut for this week's happy hour, gave his old colleague one doozy of an F-bomb greeting. Emanuel couldn't have done it better himself.

With an impressively straight face, LaTourette walked up to Rahm and said something that began with "you mother" followed by a number of bleeped out expletives, according to eyewitnesses.

Emanuel responded by giving LaTourette a friendly punch in the stomach, followed by a handshake. LaTourette then introduced Rahm to his wife, Jennifer LaTourette, a lobbyist who used to be Congressman LaTourette's chief of staff before she became Mrs. LaTourette.

Emanuel, the former congressman turned White House chief of staff, is so famous for his way with four-letter words that President Obama joked at the White House Correspondents' Association dinner over Mother's Day weekend that Rahm is "not used to saying the word 'day' after 'mother.'" Obama also said, "For Rahm, every day is a swearing-in ceremony."


Besides LaTourette, the group of Republicans who were invited to the White House last night included Reps. Jo Ann Emerson of Missouri, Tom Cole of Oklahoma, Zach Wamp of Tennessee and Erik Paulsen of Minnesota. (But only LaTourette managed to curse out, or out curse, Emanuel.)

Obama and first lady Michelle Obama, as usual, made an appearance. The president gave no formal speech but chatted and posed for photos with the members and their guests as they sipped champagne and cocktails and nibbled on bite-sized tuna tartar and other passed hors d'oeuvres.


Among the Democrats who were there last night were Reps. John Tanner of Tennessee and his wife, Betty Ann; Joe Courtney of Connecticut; David Price of North Carolina; Jane Harman of California; Diana DeGette of Colorado and her daughter, Raphaela Lipinsky DeGette, president of college Democrats at Brown University; Brad Ellsworth of Indiana; and Eliot Engel of New York, who tried to bend Obama's ear on the Middle East.
