Fw: White House will not do Christmas

Thought you might be interested in this information from the White House. This isn’t a rumor; this is a fact.

We have a friend at church who is a very talented artist. For several years she, among many others, has painted ornaments to be hung on the various White House Christmas trees. The WH usually sends out an invitation to send an ornament and informs the artists of the theme for the year.

She got her letter from the WH recently. It said that they would not be called Christmas trees this year. They will be called Holiday trees. And, to please not send any ornaments painted with a religious theme.

She was very upset at this development and sent back a reply telling them that she only painted the ornaments for Christmas trees and would not be sending any for display that left Christ out of Christmas.

Just thought you should know what the new residents in the WH plan for the future of America . If you missed his statement that "we do not consider ourselves a Christian Nation" this should confirm that he plans to take us away from our religious foundation as quickly as possible.

This is, of course, utter nonsense. I direct you to the President's Christmas address, in which the First Lady talks about the White House Christmas tree, and the President wishes everyone a Merry Christmas. (He also talks extensively about supporting the troops.)

Fw: Pelosi's footprint

This Jet is the USAF C-32, Boeing 757, that MADAME PELOSI uses.
And the Democrats want to talk about Sarah's dress???
Conservatives! Are you out there?

Madame Pelosi wasn't happy with the small jet USAF C-20B, Gulfstream III, that comes with the Speaker's, Madame Pelosi was aggravated that this little jet had to stop to refuel, so she ordered a Big Fat 200-seat USAF C-32, Boeing 757 jet that could get her back to California without stopping!

Many, many legislators walked by and grinned with glee as Joe informed everyone that Nancy's Big Fat Jet costs us, the hard working American tax payers, thousands of gallons of fuel every week. Since she only works 3 days a week, this gas guzzling jet gets fueled and she flies home to California , cost to the taxpayers of about $60,000, one way! As Joe put it, 'Unfortunately we have to pay to bring her back on Monday night.' Cost to us another $60,000.

Folks, that is $480,000 per month and that is an annual cost to the taxpayers of $5,760,000. No wonder she complains about the cost of this might cramp her style and she is styling, on my back and yours. I think of the military families in this country doing without and this woman, who heads up the most do-nothing Congress in the history of this country keeps fueling that jet while doing nothing.

Madame Pelosi wants you and me to conserve our carbon footprint. She wants us to buy smaller cars and Obama wants us to get a bicycle pump and air up our tires. These people are nuts.{And also EVIL!!!}

If you think this is outrageous, forward it to all those on your email list! Keep in mind the figures above do NOT include cost of plane or crew, just fuel!

One wonders what her total package cost us? And she wants to tax our IRA's & 401 K's! We get no COLA increase while all Gov't employees get a 2% raise. Is there no way to get her the hell out of there?

Pelosi flies in a 12-seat Air Force jet, just as her Republican predecessor Dennis Hastert did. The Speaker of the House is second in line to the presidential succession, after the Vice President, and after Sept 11, the Bush White House ordered that Air Force jets should be made available to the Speaker for security purposes. has the thorough debunking.

Crap People Believe

For years, I've been astonished at some of the crap people believe, as evidenced by emails that get forwarded to me by various people and organizations. It seems to have gotten worse, as our nation seems to have become more politically polarized. People see the world through red or blue-colored glasses, and they are willing to believe the most preposterous things if it affirms their worldview. In the past, I've mostly ignored these outrageous emails, but once in a while, I just feel outraged enough to research a response. Now, I figure if I'm going to go to that trouble, I may as well share. Maybe a few other folks will appreciate it.
