Reach Across The Aisle – What A Concept!!

September 6th, 2012 by Rich Szabo

I am sincerely sickened by all this OVER-THE-TOP poisonous and hateful political mud slinging being hurled all over Facebook . WHY?? Is it really going to help your candidate get elected? Don’t we get enough of it on the news? Will people’s minds and hearts be changed by anger and sarcasm?¬† People have different ideologies, philosophies, opinions, beliefs, etc, etc., etc. That is never going to change.

The viciousness is nuts! I do know that if people had to say what they write on Facebook¬† face to face with REAL eye contact (like in the ‘old days!), there would be (in most cases) a modicum of common courtesy and respect for another point of view. None of this myopic hate mongering.

I admit that I’ve also jumped in myself in the past and have written things that I would never resort to saying face to face to another person/persons. Truthfully, after the fact I wanted to kick my own behind. Now I get nauseous every time I see this garbage, which dominates the home feed. I’m spending more time ‘unsubscribing’ from people whose posts I normally enjoy. I also see posts that are statements supporting one candidate or the other, but are posted politely with respectful comments from both ‘sides’. I enjoy reading (and participating) in these posts, no matter what the political affiliation is and I’ve learned a thing or two!

I’m not asking for anything, expecting anything to change, lecturing or preaching. I’m just venting! Agree or not. Needed to say this for myself. I miss ‘agreeing to disagree’. Just that alone takes it up a notch or two.

Barry Bows Again…This Time In Japan

November 15th, 2009 by Rich Szabo

The Groveler in chief strikes again.

Obama Bows To Japanese Emporer

Will this man ever stop bowing and scraping to foreign leaders? What is wrong with him? Wait I know, he is a narcissistic, psychopath with delusions of grander and bent on destroying the United Sates of America as we once knew it: a free country.

Remember Barry bowing to the Saudi King? Remember the big hoopla around that one? The Whitehouse Court Jester Booby Gibbs said “oh no, he didn’t bow”. I can’t wait to hear what little Booby has to say about this one.

Obama bows to Saudi King

America should bow to no nations or people, neither should Michelle touch the queen of England. Both seem to appear as uncultured buffoons.

For the President, WHO REPRESENTS ALL OF US, to place himself in such a humbling position, reflects badly on the entire nation. We fought a REVOLUTION to break clear of royal tyranny and MOST presidents have displayed the independence and dignity of a proud Republic ever since.

Obviously, this jerk in the Whitehouse has no problem with assuming the subservient position. The first thing he should do upon his return to the USA is bow low (very low) to the American people.

Contrary to some claims, the video shows no reciprocal bow by the emperor, who traditionally bows to no one. And we’ve added a file photo from 2007 of Vice President Dick Cheney greeting the Japanese Emperor at the same residence in a different fashion.

How low will the new American president go for the world’s royalty?

This photo will get Barry a lot of approving nods in Japan this weekend, especially among the older generation of Japanese who still pay attention to the royal family. Very low bows like this are a sign of great respect and deference to a superior.

Standing upright and shaking his hand would have sufficed as when Dick Cheney then Vice President met with him.
