Back Israel to the max, stop appeasing followers of the Pedophile Prophet. Pro 2nd Amendment, pro death penalty, Repeal all hate crime legislation. Back the police unless you'd rather call a hippie when everything hits the fan. Get government out of dealing with education, childhood obesity and the enviornment. Stop using the military for sociological experiments and if we're in a war don't micromanage their every move. Kill your television, limit time on the computer and pick up a book. God's will be done and may He have mercy upon us all.

I am speechless...

(H/T to Rick at Divine Ripples)

I had to double check on the authenticity of this when I first heard of it. Words fail me right now:

..Obama declares September 11 National Grandparents Day
By Caroline May - The Daily Caller The Daily Caller – Mon, Sep 12, 2011..

Despite the seemingly singular focus on tragedy this September 11, the White House found another purpose for the day: recognizing the importance of grandparents.

Quietly on Friday, President Barack Obama declared September 11, 2011 National Grandparents Day.

“NOW, THEREFORE, I, BARACK OBAMA, President of the United States of America, by virtue of the authority vested in me by the Constitution and the laws of the United States, do hereby proclaim September 11, 2011, as National Grandparents Day,” Obama officially declared. “I call upon all Americans to take the time to honor their own grandparents and those in their community.”

The first Sunday after Labor Day has been designated a secular holiday to recognize the contribution of grandparents since then-President Jimmy Carter signed the first declaration in 1978. Presidents since 1978 have followed in Carter’s footsteps, ensuring that that Sunday is reserved for grandparent appreciation.

“The support of loved ones provides the earliest and often most powerful influence on our lives. Grandparents hold a special place in our families, serving as elders, caregivers, and sources of lasting inspiration,” Obama said in a statement. “On National Grandparents Day, we honor the loving presence of these mentors who have contributed immeasurably to the strength of our families and our Nation.”

To be sure, Obama did not forget the significance of the date on which Grandparents Day happened to fall. On Friday Obama also declared September 11 a National Day of Prayer and Remembrance as well as Patriot Day and National Day of Service and Remembrance.

Obama is evidently worried about getting the senior citizens' vote as shown by this utterly tasteless maneuever, but someone in his administration probably promised a Muslim lobbying group like CAIR that if he diluted the future remembrances for 9-11, they would help get out the 1.2 million registered Muslim voters in the US.

To their credit, 85% of Muslim voters actually have been exercising their voting privileges compared to about 50% of Americans in general.

For whom will most of them vote? Can we say Hussein?

Amazing. BHO couldn't transfer it to another Sunday for one flippin' year? Really?

Vigilis, I firmly believe Obama will count on the muslims, blacks, gays and welfare queens to be reelected. The rest of us can go to hell as far as he's concerned.

Anthony, I was floored when first hearing of this. The lack of sensitivity by a sitting President is just off the charts. But considering who the current Chief Executive is, why should we be surprised?
