Voting For Obama Keeps
Families Away From Each
Other For Thanksgiving

Associated Press, by Staff

WASHINGTON— Ah, Thanksgiving. A little turkey, some cranberry mold, maybe apple pie with ice cream, some football on TV. Getting together with the cousins. Catching up beside the fire. Togetherness. On second thought: Scratch that. What were we thinking? This was an election year. “The Thanksgiving table will be a battleground,” says Andrew Marshall, 34, of Quincy, Mass. Like many extended families across the country, Marshall’s includes Democrats and Republicans, conservatives, liberals and independents. And so, like many families that count both red and blue voters in their

Luckily, all the adults in my family despise Obama. We look forward to getting forward to the Thanksgiving get-together so that we can straighten out the young adults, those in college especially, who have been getting pumped full of socialism. We get a chance to reprogram them before they head back to the cesspits that are the American universities today.

I´m one of four siblings. Two are conservatives. Two are liberal loons, waiting for Baracka Claus to show up at their front doors and make their lives better, I s´pose. Add one brother-in-law who´s a liberal loon, but more so, AND obese and not the breadwinner of the family. Ugh.

Rather than chance a stroke I will NOT take the bait. We have never had arguments during family get together´s in my entire life....however...this year my two daughter´s and their husbands all went for Obama.

I am glad their grandparents have "moved on", and I am appalled at my daughters who both gave birth this past year. I did question each separately as to how they could support a man who champion´s abortion, (both are opposed) they each replied it was because he "cares about the poor." Oh, and "Romney´s rich and dumb."

Well their parents, (us) are in foreclosure, their Dad (who put them through college and married them off...no loans)faces working another lifetime to attempt to replace a bit of what we lost these past few years. All of our stock, and all of our savings have been used up do to lack of work.

Of course one SIL is a Social Worker and counselor for the State of Illinois and the other teaches History at the Jr. High level for $70K per year.

Nice jobs, nice houses, no worries.

I am truly blessed to have both sides of mine AND my wifes´ families all being dedicated conservatives. I only have one skateboard slacker dude of a grandson that went for Coke Zero. He´s an idiot, but amiable about things, so no arguments from him. Heck, he can´t put two sentences together to make an argument, courtesy of the government schools.

Rumor hazzit that my niece´s fiancée voted for Obama in 2008 and Ron Paul in 2012. I am not pleased that she is marrying this dufus, nor am I pleased to be sitting with him at the table tomorrow as my sister´s guest. I think I will protest with absolute silence.

No Obama voters at my table this year. They simply were not invited as I will not feed free loaders, entitlement whores, and dunces.

And when these same Obama voters can´t pay their bills this winter (as they couldn´t last year), they best find another door to knock on. Might I suggest 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20500.

Sad to say my family is back in Massachusetts. Their mentality is a trip to NH & RI is a big deal and Boston is truly theHub. Most of them probably voted forZippy and Lizzie this time. They want free stuff. There is no conscience in their pit. Left 30+ years ago and now that the Repub parents are gone, no reason to visit the bunch of grifters. I worry blue states and their cities will begin to experience unrest much like 1968. How could we have re elected this man and his thugs?

The Democrat Party gains power when the people suffer. Because they are the entitlement, subsidy, big government Party; mixed with godlessness, immorality and a perverted version of liberty; they benefit when people destroy their lives with bad habit, addiction and perverted lifestyles.

THERE IS NO INCENTIVE FOR THE DEMOCRAT PARTY TO HELP PEOPLE BE INDEPENDENT AND SELF-RELIANT. There is every incentive for the Democrat Party to ruin people´s lives, destroy the family and tear down institutions that actually help people and lift people up.

The Democrat Party is destroying this nation because they are destroying all that sacred, good, honorable, valuable, holy and valuable.

From people in the article and Lucianne commenters, the Thanksgiving meal and all the work it entails is provided by Romney voters. The Obama voters just show up to be served. Or, the makers versus the takers.

Pass the gravy train, please.

I agree heartily with No.s 11 and 12. I don´t bother with the libs - I don´t give them a chance to come into MY home and lecture ME about what caring, good souls they are who care "deeeply about the pooor!" I was amused to get a call a few days ago from my lib brother. I´m polite but cool towards him. I asked who he was having in for Thanksgiving & it was ALL of the losers in his wife´s lib family! He sounded like he wasn´t looking forward to it - they are a bunch of whiners & his feminist MIL loves to run down men. I think the best cure for libs is to spend a lot of time with their fellow travelers!

In my family, there are five girls. I am the oldest. Sister number 5 is a hopeless lefty who hangs out with hipies. Sisters number 2 and 4 are rightwing, same as me. Sister number 3 started out conservative but married a public employee union member and from thereon out, took on the coloring of the most militant of them. Hasn´t got a clue about why the economy is tanking, still thinks it´s all the fault of the big bankers.

I was thinking it was me. Most of my family is very conservative, but my sister is a massive libtard. I was wondering if I "have to" call her today. Guess not. Not my fault.

Already know from my dentist that he will be laying off all of his office staff Jan 1. Hoping I can keep going to him. Been my dentist for 20 years.

My two sisters are rabid libtards. They wouldn´t know a fact if it hit them in the face. They only watch CNN & MSNBC. One sister is adamant that its the republican´s fault that no budget has passed in almost 4 years. I told her Reid wouldn´t bring up the House passed budget for discussion or vote. She said that was a lie. You can´t fix stupid. By the way, she works for that failed Headstart Program.

Liberals don´t get the difference between a poor person and a professional poor person. Welfare was meant to be temporary assistance for down on their luck people which nobody has a problem with.When an 18 year old girl gets pregnant and heads straight to the welfare office upon hearing the good news,she´s choosing a life of poverty and has nothing to complain about.To me she doesn´t have a right to demand anything from anybody.

Then hey say you can punish the kid for the mother´s stupidity. Guess what those welfare brats are punished every day living under the roof of a person with no values,work ethic or moral guidance. A lot of times locked in their room so the mother can party.

Then they have to sit there when the mom´s latest BF comes stumbling through the door at 5am and all hell breaks loose,because more than likely the man was out running another woman.Cell phones are destroyed,maybe even computers. Bleach is thrown on clothes. Yeah,these kids are being punished by the sins of their mother alright.

Same excuse on illegal alien kids. No mention of kids from decent families who will have to pay off the future debt rung up by these social derelicts.

#4 all three girls in my family (including moi) were liberals in college. One sister worked at PP too. The holidays we had to listen to our conservative (immigrant - and first generation family and friends) about liberalism, socialism, fascism. Looking back I am so glad we did.

At 26 or so (about the age for each of us) we turned "conservative" or in my case libertarian/conservative because of those sewn seeds. Even my sister who worked in PP quit, admitting it was one of her biggest regrets.

Many young ones go through a stupid, idealistic stage. Thank goodness for the holidays.

All the best and Happy Thanksgiving

Me too #27. I have to sit with my 90 year old inlaws today who voted for Obama. Nice people but they voted for higher taxes for me and my wife and voted themselves to be some of the first victoms of Obamacare death panels. Hate to say it. As a rule my wife and I are separating ourselves socially from Obama supporting friends and neighbors.

It´s beyond Thanksgiving.

Yes I try to avoid avoid Obama Voters AND Businesses that donated to Great Leader ........... But what do you do when there are places where you can´t avoid these people?

It´s most difficult to be civil to those who voted to ......[Take Your Choice] ....
a) ruin the economy
b) betray the military
c) forgo religious liberty
d) impose ObamaCare
e) reward the welfare state
f) propagandize our children
g) abandon the Constitution
g) betray our Nation

What do you do? and Where do you Go?

Note
I cringe having to deal with office staff, restaurant workers, supermarket cashiers or bank tellers who I know voted to betrayed our Country.

What do you do? and Where do you Go?

I don´t event want utility workers, delivery people or others who voted for Great Leader. into my home.

Again
What do you do? and Where do you Go?

NOTE
Post Election morning 2008, I considered wearing a BLACK arm band or placing Black bunting at the window of my home ...... to grieve for our Country ......for I knew what his victory foretold .......... but decided to join the fight against the takeover of our Nation ......... unfortunately unsuccessfully.

We are now living in Rome 476, with the Great Leader of Germany 1933.

Again
What do we do? and Where do we go .....from here?

Posted By: JoniTx- 3/29/2014 2:21:53 PM     Post Reply
The past couple of weeks have marked a turning point in American ugliness as the mob has turned its full fury on first lady Michelle Obama. From criticism of her trip to China to a recent “tell-all” by former White House assistant press secretary Reid Cherlin in the New Republic about Obama’s allegedly tyrannical behavior, the gloves have been removed. As described, she was a perfectionist — super-attentive to detail and laser-focused on advance planning. And this is bad because? Worse, according to a former (anonymous) staffer, there was no barometer for meeting Obama’s high standards. “The first lady having

A police officer involved in the frantic rescue effort after the Washington mudslide recovered the body of his own sister trapped in her car. Dawn Brunner, 42, described how he was called by other rescue workers to inspect a blue object buried in the pile of mud. Mr Brunner´s sister, Summer Raffo, 36 was known to have been driving in the area. He told his teenage son, who was also working as a volunteer with the search team, to brace himself. "He said he´d been preparing himself for five days," Mr Brunner recalled. At least 26 people are known to

The 2016 presidential primaries are still years away, but an unofficial one held this weekend in Las Vegas could prove incredibly lucky for at least one GOP contender´s coffers. It´s the spring meeting of the Republican Jewish Coalition, which is held at the Venetian casino, owned by Sheldon Adelson. Yes, the same Sheldon Adelson who donated $15 million to Newt Gingrich´s super PAC and $30 million to Mitt Romney´s super PAC. Four potential presidential candidates are hoping they can cajole Adelson, who is also on the Republican Jewish Coalition´s board, into giving them a leg-up in the already crowded Republican

Immigrants Help Push L.A. County
Population Past 10 Million

Posted By: JoniTx- 3/29/2014 1:35:23 PM     Post Reply
Los Angeles County is the most populous county in the nation, with more than 10 million residents partly due to an influx of legal and illegal immigrants. According to census figures, L.A. County has an estimated "10,017,068 residents," which is "nearly twice as many as the next largest: Cook County in Illinois, which had an estimated 5,240,700 people." The Los Angeles Times reports that what pushed Los Angeles County past the "10-million mark was an influx of people from abroad," for Los Angeles County "had the highest net number of international migrants between 2012 and 2013 -- 39,000 people -- compared

Clinton docs: Lewinsky, speechwriting and race

The Clinton Library took the wraps off another batch of White House documents Friday afternoon, offering new insights into how aides scrambled to address the Monica Lewinsky scandal, how the hot-button issue of race tied the White House staff up in knots and how former President Bill Clinton cast a wide net for advice in advance of his major speeches. The new set of Clinton documents make little mention of then-first lady Hillary Clinton, and so are unlikely to have a major political impact. However, many of the memos were written by or mention aides to Bill Clinton who now

It was quite a contrast: Just a couple of hours before CNN´s Piers Morgan signed off with a slashing attack on gun rights and the NRA, longtime CNBC host Larry Kudlow ended his final broadcast with a stirring tribute to the power of freedom and faith. "It is freedom that makes this the greatest country in the world," Kudlow told his viewers before recounting how faith in God helped him overcome addiction two decades ago. "And it is that faith that guides me every day." In the NBC-MSNBC-CNBC universe, Kudlow´s was a rare voice championing conservative values, optimistically and enthusiastically, every

Bill Maher took on Paul Ryan‘s recent comments about black culture and while he didn’t necessarily agree with Ryan, he did find it striking that prominent black people have made the same point he did but haven’t been attacked by the left, which begged the question, “Is something less true if a white person says it?” Comedian W. Kamau Bell argued you can’t blame people in the inner city “for not having jobs when there’s no jobs in the inner cities.” Republican Rick Lazio pointed out that Democrats are the ones running these cities and asked what they’ve ever done

5.1 earthquake: More than 100

More than 100 aftershocks have been reported since a magnitude 5.1 earthquake rattled Southern California on Friday night. Most of the aftershocks have been small, but some were strong enough to be felt in the areas around the epicenter in northwestern Orange County. Meanwhile, officials surveyed the damage, which for the most part was considered minor. Fullerton police said early Saturday that as many as 50 people had been displaced by the quake. Several buildings are being investigated for possible structural damage, including some apartment buildings. The quake, centered near La Habra, caused furniture to tumble, pictures to fall off

Did baby Barack Obama live with

Only "mere scraps of data documented" Barack Obama´s mother´s "days in Seattle," writes Obama biographer David Maraniss in his 2012 Barack Obama: The Story. Incidentally, Maraniss was telling the truth: Ann´s "days in Seattle" weren´t mentioned in Dreams from my Father and were only vaguely implied in Maraniss´s lengthy 2008 article. And it appears that the only "scraps" of evidence of Obama´s mother´s time in Seattle during 1961-1962 was a listing in a Seattle Polk directory and a University of Washington (UW) transcript. And it appears that the only "mere scraps" of evidence of baby Barack´s time in Seattle are

Quite a quartet. Quite a variety of famous men, and a woman no one ever heard of, all members of a generation rapidly headed for judgment and reward, all dead in the past few days. I knew two of them — Admiral Jeremiah Denton and Secretary James Schlesinger — fairly well, and I spent years in the nightmare supervised by Judge Walsh when he was special prosecutor in the Iran-Contra matter. I never knew Wendy Davis, but her obituary is a disaster, and I’m going to correct it. But first the famous men. It’s hard to render more honor to

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, on the heels of an internal review that cleared him in the still-churning road closure scandal, told Fox News he feels exonerated and indicated the ordeal will not impact his decision on whether to run for president in 2016. “There’s no baggage here because I didn’t do anything,” the Republican governor told Fox News’ Megyn Kelly on “The Kelly File” when asked whether the scandal would hinder a presidential run. The governor spoke with Fox News on Friday just hours before giving his first press conference since the scandal broke in early January. A day earlier,

Mark Witaschek never had a firearm in the District of Columbia, but he is now on the city’s Gun Offenders Registry. This bizarre case has drawn national attention because an upstanding citizen was tried and convicted of possessing unregistered ammunition for muzzleloader bullets, which are simply pieces of lead and copper. On Friday afternoon, I accompanied Mr. Witaschek and his wife, Bonnie, to Metropolitan Police Department headquarters to abide by the terms of his sentence, which meant registering within 48 hours. Immediately inside the front doors and metal detectors is the Gun Offenders Registry Unit, which has suddenly appeared in

As part of its plan to reduce U.S. greenhouse gas emissions, the Obama administration is targeting the dairy industry to reduce methane emissions in their operations. This comes despite falling methane emission levels across the economy since 1990. The White House has proposed cutting methane emissions from the dairy industry by 25 percent by 2020. Although U.S. agriculture only accounts for about 9 percent of the country’s greenhouse gas emissions, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, it makes up a sizeable portion of methane emissions — which is a very potent greenhouse gas. Some of these methane emissions come from

In an address to the House on Wednesday, Alabama Representative Mo Brooks read aloud a letter sent to him by Dr. Marlin Gill of Decatur. The letter holds nothing back while detailing the excessive costs and regulations that Dr. Gill calls Obamacare’s “war against doctors.” Here is the full text of the letter, courtesy of Rep. Brooks’ office: Dear Congressman Brooks, As a practicing family physician, I plead for help against what I can best characterize as Washington’s war against doctors. The medical profession has never before remotely approached today’s stress, work hours, wasted costs, decreased efficiency, and declining ability to focus on patient

After a disastrous presidential campaign in 2012, can Texas Governor Rick Perry mount a credible bid for the White House in 2016? Texas Governor Rick Perry is currently on a media tour touting the theme that America is a great place for second chances, specifically second chances for Texas governors with national ambitions. Perry is trying to erase the memory of his disastrous 2012 GOP presidential campaign which included “brain-farts” and “oops” debate moments with his folksy, charming, and uniquely American manner. Curious about Perry’s comeback strategy, I asked Texan and GOP presidential media guru, Mark McKinnon and he said,

Please, try not to let what I’m about to tell you destroy your faith in the integrity of the national Democratic Party. Right now, a crime wave is sweeping the nation, and everyone in this out-of-control mob has a D after their names, even if most of the media are loath to report it. If you are a low-information voter, a Globe subscriber, say, you have been told endlessly that the root of all evil in American politics is the Tea Party, better known in your moonbat media as “teabaggers.” Oddly, however, the hacks rounded up over the last few days, well,

Ann Furedi, of BPAS, said the law does not prevent women from choosing a termination on the grounds of gender and she even compared it to abortion after rape. Mrs Furedi´s comments come weeks after it was disclosed that the CPS had decided not to prosecute two doctors who were exposed by a Daily Telegraph investigation arranging terminations purely because the unborn baby was a girl. A group of 50 MPs, drawn from across the party divide, then wrote to this newspaper warning that the decision was a “step back in the fight for gender equality” and effectively changes the law without

When Jorge Mario Bergoglio became Pope Francis a little more than a year ago, the first thing that struck those who knew him well was his unexpected, beatific smile. “In Argentina, he didn’t smile like that,” Sergio Rubin, the pope’s biographer, said this week at a conference sponsored by the Ethics and Public Policy Center. “That was the big surprise.” Since then, the pope has mostly kept on smiling — in homilies, in audiences, in meetings with the homeless and the poor. If you look at the pictures from Francis’ meeting with President Obama on Thursday, though, the smile is there only some of the time.

More than six million Americans have now signed up for private insurance under the Affordable Care Act, according to the White House, with just four days to go until the end of its first open enrollment period. While traveling in Italy on Thursday, President Obama shared the news in a conference call with thousands of health-care navigators and volunteers helping enroll people on state and federal marketplaces. As the volume of consumers seeking health plans has surged -- there were over 1.5 million visits to HealthCare.gov Wednesday and more than 430,000 calls to the marketplaces´ call centers -- Obama urged those on

Usually the type of Republicans MSNBC hosts invite on their shows are either craven RINO types who can be depended upon to trash talk fellow Republicans, or the more inarticulate, dimmer bulbs in the party who fail to communicate conservative positions effectively. MSNBC host Chris Hayes had an entirely different type of animal on his hands with PA Americans For Prosperity Director, Jennifer Stefano. In fact, he´s probably still licking his wounds after the nasty confrontation he had with her, Wednesday night in a debate over the latest ObamaCare delay. He got off on the wrong foot by introducing Stefano

President Obama marveled at the sheer size of the Colosseum during a private sightseeing tour Thursday night in Rome. "This is bigger than some current baseball stadiums," Obama told reporters, noting the size exceeded Wrigley Field in his hometown of Chicago. "I have to check on what it seats. It´s remarkable. Unbelievable." The amphitheatre, located in central Rome, was constructed between 70 and 80 A.D., and was estimated to hold between 50,000 and 80,000 spectators. The Colosseum was home to gladiator battles and animal hunts during the Roman Empire. Obama walked along a platform running through the center of the

President Obama said Pope Francis did not raise Obamacare “in detail” when they met on Thursday, but that in a separate meeting with the Vatican’s secretary of state “we discussed briefly the issue of making sure that conscience and religious freedom was observed in the context of applying the law.” At a joint press conference with Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi, Obama also acknowledged that he differs with the Vatican’s stance on some issues, but added that he “heartily” agrees with most of its positions. During his nearly hour-long papal audience, Obama said Pope Francis “actually did not touch in
