Who Does the President Threaten

From now thru November 2012 this should be required weekly or ,at least monthly, reading – BY ALL WHO VOTE!!!


Did you notice who Obama threatened when he wasn't getting his way on raising the debt ceiling?

He threatened to not pay:
Social Security Retirees, Military Retirees, Social
Security disability and Federal Retirees.


Now...Let this sink in really well -

He did not threaten to stop payments to illegal aliens.

He did not threaten to take frivolous benefits such as Internet access away from violent inmates.

He did not offer to fire some of the thousands of unnecessary federal employees that he hired .

He did not offer to cut down on his or his wife's frivolous gallivanting around the country and the world.

He did not threaten to not pay the senators and representatives or any of their staff.

He did not threaten to take benefits away from welfare recipients.

He did not threaten the food stamp programs.

He did not threaten to not pay foreign aid.

He did not threaten to cut back on anything that involves his base of voters.


The list could go on and on. He is in full political re-election mode!

Why are we allowing this person to destroy this wonderful country with his selfishness and lies?
His type of change is killing our country. He needs to be stopped and only our votes can stop him.
Do not forget about his tactics when it's election time. Vote Obama out of the Presidency in 2012.
LET'S MAKE 2012 - THE END OF AN ERROR!
"Democracy... is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch.
Liberty ... is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote." -- Benjamin Franklin
AMERICA...HOME OF THE FREE BECAUSE OF THE BRAVE.

PRAY FOR OUR TROOPS. ELECTION 2012 IS COMING!!! A Nation of Sheep Breeds a Government of Wolves! I'M 100% for PASSING THIS ON!!! Let's Take a Stand!!!
Obama: Gone!
Borders: Closed!
Language: English only
Culture: Constitution, and the Bill of Rights!
Drug Free: Mandatory Drug Screening before Welfare!
NO freebies to: Non-Citizens!
We the people are coming

Assembling Your Walking Wheel


Someone asked me how to put her antique Walking Wheel together. It had been dismantled, boxed and shipped to her. It is completely easy.

Lay all the parts to the wheel out on the floor. The first part to look at is the largest board, this is the “bed” of the wheel. Place it about where you want the wheel to be leaving about 3 to 4 feet behind it for you to walk around it and to spin back to.

Now find the legs. There should be 2 the same and a longer one. Put the back legs in the holes in the bottom of the bed, lifting the bed up enough to slip them in. They likely are on a slant, so there will be a flat spot at the bottom for them to sit flat on the floor. Adjust so the back is stable and firmly on the floor.

Slip the front leg into its hole. This should have the bed sitting at an angle, not flat on the floor. This leg also will have a flat spot on the bottom so it isn’t standing on its toe. Press firmly on the bed so the wheel is firmed against the floor. We don’t want it tipping over.

Now we come to the wheel post. It has a large spike, this should be at right angles to the bed facing out at you. Put Vaseline on this and on the leather washer that is on the wheel post. No leather washer? Easy to fix, just go to the leather shop and get a scrap of heavy belt leather about 2 inches square and cut it round, in exact center cut a hole the size of the back of the wheel axle. Turn the smooth face out, but put Vaseline on both sides of it. Slip the Wheel on the axle and turn it gently.

The wheel post should lean back from center and toward the back wall just a bit with the axle level. This is the angle needed to prevent the wheel from spinning off the post and axle and crashing on the floor. If it is properly angled it won’t need a pin in the end of the axle.

Tensioner is some mechanism, that either slides and has a band across it and around the bed or it has a screw mechanism that pulls it to another post at the front of the bed.

In the first case of the piece of lumber that has a band around it, slip the mother-of-all post into the hole on the end of this board. In the second case slip the 2 posts into their respective holes. These are the two types of tensioners I am familiar with. I have one of each.

Now for the mother-of-all! It slips onto the top of the longest post at the front of the wheel with the whorl facing the wheel. There should be holes in the mother-of-all for the maidens to drop into. If it doesn’t fit tightly, get a small piece of lining leather and put a slim strip of it on the post then slip the mother-of-all over it and the post top. It must not turn freely. It must be tight.

The spindle and whorls I have are the simple ones. One fits through holes in the Maidens and the other is tied onto the Maidens with corn shucks and linen thread. They both have the whorl directly on the spindle, which is a steel pin about 12 inches long and very sharp on the long end.

The drive band should be made of rough cotton cord, which I cannot find in any store so I used crochet cotton size 10 or bedspread cotton and chained it to fit around the wheel and the whorl. This can then be tied together and stretched and retied till you have it the length you need for spinning. It needs to be waxed with beeswax.

Not Yours to Give

this is a very old document and I think very appropriate for today! Today is the birth anniversary of Col. David Crockett.



title of the article is "Not Yours to Give" by Col. David Crocket.

http://www.fee.org/pdf/books/Not%20Yours%20to%20Give.pdf



I ask that all read it and think on it. Pass it on to all the politicians who come across your path.



I only wish I had read it before this past weekend. I might have gone to the microphone to read it.

2010 Census Cautions from the Better Business Bureau

The following is simply to caution you and those you love (particularly elderly folks who may be unaware of the facts or easily confused) on the requirements of the census and who will be gathering information. IT IS VERY IMPORTANT!
___________________________________________________________________

WARNING: 2010 Census Cautions from the Better Business Bureau
Be Cautious About Giving Info to Census Workers
by Susan Johnson

With the U.S. Census process beginning, the Better Business Bureau (BBB) advises people to be cooperative, but cautious, so as not to become a victim of fraud or identity theft. The first phase of the 2010 U.S. Census is under way as workers have begun verifying the addresses of households across the country. Eventually, more than 140,000 U.S. Census workers will count every person in the United States and will gather information about every person living at each address including name, age, gender, race, and other relevant data.

The big question is - how do you tell the difference between a U.S. Census worker and a con artist? BBB offers the following advice:

** If a U.S. Census worker knocks on your door, they will have a badge, a handheld device, a Census Bureau canvas bag, and a confidentiality notice. Ask to see their identification and their badge before answering their questions. However, you should never invite anyone you don't know into your home.

** Census workers are currently only knocking on doors to verify address information.

Do not give your Social Security number, credit card or banking information to anyone, even if they claim they need it for the U.S. Census.

REMEMBER, NO MATTER WHAT THEY ASK, YOU REALLY ONLY NEED TO TELL THEM HOW MANY PEOPLE LIVE AT YOUR ADDRESS..

While the Census Bureau might ask for basic financial information, such as a salary range, YOU DON'T HAVE TO ANSWER ANYTHING AT ALL ABOUT YOUR FINANCIAL SITUATION.

The Census Bureau will not ask for Social Security, bank account, or credit card numbers, nor will employees solicit donations. Any one asking for that information is NOT with the Census Bureau.

AND REMEMBER, THE CENSUS BUREAU HAS DECIDED NOT TO WORK WITH ACORN ON GATHERING THIS INFORMATION. No Acorn worker should approach you saying he/she is with the Census Bureau.

Eventually, Census workers may contact you by telephone, mail, or in person at home. However, the Census Bureau will not contact you by Email, so be on the lookout for Email scams impersonating the Census. Never click on a link or open any attachments in an Email that is supposedly from the U.S. Census Bureau.

the President is Puzzled about the Military "Selfishness"

another of the most interesting emails I have gotten. don't blame me, I didn't write it.


THIS HAS GOT TO BE THE MOST OUTRAGEOUS STATEMENT EVER MADE BY A
PUBLIC OFFICIAL LET ALONE BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. AND
THIS GUY IS OUR "COMMANDER IN CHIEF". HE IS A DISGRACE.


HERE IS HIS RESPONSE WHEN HE BACKED OFF FROM HIS DECISION TO LET THE
MILITARY PAY FOR THEIR WAR INJURIES.

Bad press, including major mockery of the plan by comedian Jon
Stewart, led to President Obama abandoning his proposal to require
veterans carry private health insurance to cover the estimated $540
million annual cost to the federal government of treatment for injuries
to military personnel received during their tours on active duty. The
President admitted that he was puzzled by the magnitude of the
opposition to his proposal.

"Look, it's an all volunteer force," Obama complained. "Nobody Made
these guys go to war. They had to have known and accepted the risks. Now
they whine about bearing the costs of their choice? It doesn't
compute.." "I thought these were people who were proud to sacrifice for
their country, "Obama continued. "I wasn't asking for blood, just money.
With the country facing the worst financial crisis in its history, I'd
have thought that the patriotic thing to do would be to try to help
reduce the nation's deficit. I guess I underestimated the selfishness of
some of my fellow Americans.."

Please pass this on to every one including every vet and their
families whom you know.
How in the world did a person with this mind set become our leader?

REMEMBER THIS STATEMENT... "Nobody made these guys go to war. They
had to have known and accepted the risks. Now they whine about bearing
the costs of their choice? And "I guess I underestimated the
selfishness of some of my fellow Americans." Soldiers, Family Membera
and DOD Civilians are some of the most selfless Americans ever. They
risk their lives, loss of limbs, loss of eyesight and quality of life
while fighting Ameica's wars and providing Freedom throughout the world.
And the President calls them "selfish...."!!!!!!!! He has never been
there. How could he ever understand..

If he thinks he will ever get another vote from an Active Duty, Reserve,
National Guard service member or veteran of a military service he ought
to think it over. If you or a family member is or has served their
country please pass this to them. Please pass this to everyone.

I'm guessing that other than the 20-25 percent hard-core liberals in
the US will agree that this is just another example why he is rapidly
becoming the worst president in American history. Remind everyone over
and over how this man thinks, while he bows to the Saudi Arabian king.
