Buckeyes and Ted Kennedy

August 31, 2009

There are two things in which I consider myself well versed in. Purses and THE Ohio State Buckeyes. I know that some of you may be thinking that politics should be on that list but I am not expert on politics. You may be thinking, “thats all good and well Jen, but what can handbags or football have anything to do with Teddy Kennedy’s passing?” Well, I will explain.

Sometimes in order to make my feelings known it is much easier to relate it to something I know better than anything. For this example I will be using the Buckeyes. Back in the day, we had a coach at Ohio State. His name was *bows head in reverence* Woody Hayes. He is now considered one of the greatest coaches we have ever had. His overall record at OSU was 205-61-10 which is a little over a 76%. Absolutely amazing. He was a Buckeye through and through, and whenever anyone says that what they really mean is that they love the Buckeyes and HATE anything related to Michigan. The Ohio State-Michigan rivalry is not only the OLDEST rivalry in college ball it is also the most INTENSE. Woody Hayes embodies that to a T. In fact he rarely spoke of Michigan by name just as “that state up north” or “the team up north”. Michigan’s coach at the time of Woody’s reign was another famous coach Bo Schembechler. As much as Woody hated Michigan, Bo hated Ohio. They embraced the war with no-holds barred and often took things way too personal. It was NOT just another game on the schedule for them it was THE ONLY GAME that mattered all year. If either one of them had lost every game but the rivalry game…then the season was considered a victory. Woody died in 1987 at the age of 74, but will remain always as the greatest and most memorable coach in the Buckeyes history.

Fast forward to modern day. Our current coach is Jim Tressel is fast becoming one that equals Woody in record and ability to beat Michigan which in Ohio is really the only thing that matters. His main rival’s coach was Lloyd Carr and until last year they had met 7 times and only once had Carr beat Tressel in 2004.

In 2006, the Game of the Year became the Game of the CENTURY. Very few times in college football history have any teams ranked #1 and #2 in the polls met in regular season play. In 2006 this happened twice. First Ohio State vs. Texas…and then in November it just happened to be #1 Ohio State vs. #2 Michigan. Never before had our teams been ranked as such and the forecast was bleak for the Wolverines. Michigan knew that Tressel was prepared and they needed something to rally them. Something to motivate them. Something to try and forget what the experts were saying and beat the Buckeyes. And they got what they asked for.

On the eve of the biggest matchup of the year, mere hours before the game on the Friday before, the infamous Bo Schembechler died of a massive heart attack. Suddenly, the Wolverines were renewed! They were PUMPED! They had a mission and a goal. To win this game, the game that every Ohioan and Michigander waits for all year, for their beloved former coach. They were determined. They had the whole world watching as they entered that stadium with conviction to make Bo proud as he watched above from the clouds. To be completely honest, I was scared. I figured this rallying cry would work and that Michigan has just that oomph they needed to win. My father even said…”Just like Schembechler to die on the eve of the greatest matchup in our rivalry’s history. That’s just like a Michigander. What a dirty trick.” (If this statement seems insensitive or callous to you…you have never lived in Michigan or Ohio)

Well, when all was said and done, Michigan did not make Bo proud and lost to the Buckeyes that year 42-39. They tried hard, but let’s face it…it was still the same old Michigan team. Football games are not won by mere touchy-feely inspiration, but by actually playing football. You still have to score the points, you still have to break through the opposition, and you still have to face the fact that if you don’t stack up to the other side, you are going to lose no matter who wished for you to win on their deathbed.

By now you may understand the point. The healthcare bill is hanging on by a thread. Even the Democrats are starting to look out for #1 and what they need to do to get re-elected. They understand no bill that is currently proposed will be welcomed with open arms by the voters and that maybe now is not the time for reform as they have stated time and time again that it is. They needed something to rally behind. They needed inspiration. They needed a feel good dying wish mushy touchy feely reason for the citizens of America to stand behind. They needed a icon to stand behind. And they got it with the death of Ted Kennedy. Now they can say, do it for Teddy. Make his last wish come true. Don’t make his death be in vain. Don’t let the last thing Ted ever supported die a death like he did.

Well, like the Michigan Wolverine team of 2006, they can call their rallying cry, they can use his death as propoganda for the passing of this bill, and they can look up to the skies and say “This one’s for you TK”. But also like the 2006 Wolverines, its going to actually take a plan that is going to work to withstand us, the people who see past all the smoke and mirrors and see the truth. A bill that at its core, is just not capable of making a touchdown and winning the game of reform. Sorry Liberals, no matter what you name the bill, no matter how many different versions you put forth, and how many pages of incomprehensible nonsense you add, when push comes to shove….its not going to withstand our defensive line. But, I do give you credit for trying.

Ted Kennedy as a Michigan Wolverine

The Bells Are Ringing…

July 2, 2009

(This is a speech that I wrote…and discarded…for my July 4th Tea Party speech. Its an ok speech…just not appropriate for the venue and theme of which I wanted to convey. So I just posted it here instead…LOL)

A thought occurred to me the other day. I was thinking about bells. And no not the department store although I am long overdue for a new pair of jeans….I was thinking about the importance bells play in our lives. In the morning, I awake to the ring of my alarm clock…symbolizing the bringing of a new day. I am alerted by my phone by a tiny ding that someone needs my attention in the form of a text message. I have a bell that rings that reminds me to take out the trash every Tuesday. I also have a very important bell that chimes when I am low on gas in my car…and for whoever invented that bell…I sincerely give you my thanks. But these are bells we all hear. They remind us, they alert us, they awaken us, and they grab our attention.

Inscribed on a bell in Pennsylvania are the words….Proclaim LIBERTY throughout all the Land unto all the Inhabitants thereof. The Liberty Bell was the symbol for the American Revolution and it rang to remind us freedom is an inalienable right…to alert us our responsibility to defend that right…..to awaken us to the dawning of freedom from tyranny….and to grab our attention that this fight was for the creation of a land in which people live free.

My husband is in the United States Navy. He is currently in an undisclosed location on his ship. The bells he hears carry a different tone. His bells remind him that freedom is not free, they ring to alert him of imminent danger, they awaken him from his few hours of precious sleep when a threat arises, and they grab his attention to protect the nation in which he would willingly give his life to protect.

The bells are ringing all around us. They ring for us to remember those that have died in protection of our freedom. They ring to alert us that the fight for freedom is one that is fought everyday even if we don’t see it, to awaken us from the slumber that we the silent majority have been in, to grab our attention. Let once again the chime of them ring throughout the land the call of freedom and to remember the men and women of our United States Military….who fight to keep the resounding ring of freedom alive in this great nation. I am honored to call myself a citizen of the United States of America. Today we remember that bell, that 233 years ago, rang to proclaim our independence, to which we are shameless and boldly proud of.

God Bless the U.S.A.

Obama ‘lei’s it on thick

June 27, 2009

Iran is still breaking out in protests, its young citizens fighting with their lives for the democracy and freedom they so richly deserve. A dictatorship ruled North Korea threatens to rain a ‘fire storm’ of nuclear power down upon the United States also holding an Anti-American rally where they speak their intent to blow America off the map. Congress is moving at lightening speed to slowly chip away at our freedoms and economy. The leader of the free world is aware of all these dire situations so what does he do? Well, throw a luau of course! Chalk full with a roasted pig (you’re welcome PETA), leis, and Robert Gibbs being ‘sacrificed’ in a dunk tank (is that considered waterboarding?).

When addressing the Congress invited to this festive occasion Obama said these words. “Aloha!” he screamed. “I wish I could have given you a trip to Hawaii. Given our budget crunch, we can’t do that, so at least we can bring Hawaii to you.”

HUH? WHAT? IS THAT A MISPRINT? No. Our narcissistic and pathetic excuse for a leader wishes not for the Iranian protesters to have freedom, or for North Korea to stop in their terroristic threats to our great Nation, but that he could award Congress…who undoubtedly does his bidding everyday…with a trip to Hawaii. Congress. The same Congress who yesterday voted in favor of the largest American tax increase in history with its egregious Crap and Trade bill.

Here’s an idea. How about instead of celebrating the Congress who is corrupt and flawed you celebrate with the men and women of our United States Armed Forces? How about you celebrate by standing up to the Iranian government or even the North Korean regime? How about instead of going for ice cream and throwing luaus you do something about the 9.4% unemployment rate that you promised would not rise about 8% if we passed that horrendous stimulus bill? WHY ARE YOU CELEBRATING AT ALL????????

This is NOT a time for celebration. We are in a dire economic situation. Our deficit is one that we cannot sustain. You are adding more and more taxes to the middle and lower class that you promised you would never do. You, Mr. President, belittle, debase, degrade, demean, diminish, disgrace, dishonor, humiliate, lower, mortify, reduce and shame everything this Country stands for. I hope you enjoy your roasted pig…although its a bit of an act of cannibalism to eat one of your own kind.

We are watching….and we are disgusted.

HR 2454

June 25, 2009

This is a call to action for all! This is not a partisan decision…but rather one that effects us all regardless of political beliefs. Congress is voting tomorrow on the HR 2454 bill. That is the one you have been hearing about called the “Cap and Trade” bill. This bill in inevitably cost you more money. It IS a tax. It will cost you more on your electric bill and reduce an already weak economy.

YOU NEED TO CALL YOUR CONGRESSMAN TODAY AND TELL THEM YOU WILL BE WATCHING AND THEY NEED TO VOTE NO!!!!!!!!!

Here are a few things you need to discuss with your Congressman. This new bill will:

1. Reduce aggregate gross domestic product (GDP) by $9.6 trillion
2. Destroy an average of 1-3 million jobs, every year
3. Raise electricity rates 90 percent after adjusting for inflation
4. Raise inflation-adjusted gasoline prices by 74 percent
5. Raise residential natural gas prices by 55 percent
6. Raise an average family’s annual energy bill by $1,500 annually
7. Increase the federal debt by 26 percent, which is $29,150 per person

It is time for the voice of America to be represented accurately by our representation. If you need to find out who your Congressman is and their number…

Please CLICK HERE

Remember: Congress is the voice of US. It is our duty to let them know!

Obama and the Iran situation

Dear ACORN

June 22, 2009

Dear ACORN,

Shakespeare wrote:

What’s Montague? it is nor hand, nor foot,
Nor arm, nor face, nor any other part
Belonging to a man. O, be some other name!
What’s in a name? that which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet

Meaning? That’s right. You can change your name. It does not matter. There is nothing in a name, and if changed, you will still be a fraudulent, criminal, corrupt organization. We will not forget who you are. We are not stupid enough to fall for your image makeover.

You can put lipstick on a pig and call it a lady…but it will stink like a pig, talk like a pig, and act like a pig.
So put on your lipstick and change your name, but we will not stop. We brought your organization to the forefront for your criminal actions. We “tarnished” the name of ACORN. I consider that a small victory. Next step, tarnish whatever name you hide under.

I think it is absolutely HILARIOUS that you consider us ignorant. I think it is funny that you think we will go away. It cracks me up that you think you can escape the justice that is to be brought upon you. WE WILL NOT STAND BY AND LET YOUR CRIMES BE FORGOTTEN. So, go on. Change your name. Put the lipstick on the pig that is ACORN. We will follow you where ever you go.

Wade Rathke and his brother Dale should expect a name change too. I propose their new names should be Inmate Wade Rathke, and his brother Inmate Dale Rathke, property of the Louisiana State Prison. Now THAT would be a name change I could stand behind.

You hide under the false pretense that you are organized to help the less fortunate in communities. You have done the opposite. You have taken community’s voice and skewed it to your liking. You have taken communities and brought them into your criminal activities. The $948,607.50 that Dale Rathke embezzled could have done a lot for a community. You are disgraceful.

So watch out “The Organization Formally Known As ACORN” we will be there. Every step of the way. Praying continually that God makes us the kind of conservatives that liberal organizations like you hate. Oh, and your welcome for my contribution to your organization. Do I get to attend your next $22,000 a plate gala event for my contribution? I didn’t think so.

Sincerely Angry,

Jenifer
