  • Why Michelle Obama Gets Twice as Many Tweets as Mitt Romney

    Posted on September 4th, 2012 phpguru No comments

    Politico just reported that according to Twitter, the maximum TPS (Tweets Per Second) during Michelle Obama’s DNC2012 speech peaked over 28,000 while during Mitt Romney’s speech last week, that same metric was half, peaking around 14,000 TPS.

    Here’s why: Republicans following Mitt Romney are more likely to be a little older, a little wiser, hard-working business folks in middle America with way too many things to do, and far less spare time. More importantly, the average Elephant is paying very close attention, intently listening to the content of what is being said, sorting fact from fiction. More Republicans simply don’t have as much time to futz around with the latest tech gadget or time-sucks like Twitter or Facebook. Also, to be GOP is to show respect for free speech, even if we vehemently disagree. We know millions of our forefathers died to protect the Dem’s right to bloviate, and we’ll show you we’re respectful by listening, and not fiddling with our smart phones, while you dig your own grave this November.

    By contrast, the average Democrat is more likely to be be younger, more frivolous and more concerned with and interested in celebrities and the Hollywood culture than Politics. Donkeys are more likely to take advantage of ample leisure time, often at work when the boss isn’t paying attention, to learn the ins and outs of a successful tweet, and how to find the next trending video on YouTube. Us eager voters only hear every third or fourth word of the speech, because we’d rather be updating our Facebook status about the glitz and glamor than actually pay attention to what is being said. We know what’s being said already. We learned everything we need to know about Obama in 2008. We believe Obama just needs more time to fix everything. In the end, it’s about being a good person and doing what’s right, even if it means we have to rewrite parts of The Constitution.

    Disagree? John Stossel found American poor are the most wealthy poor the world has ever seen. More than 80% of poor people aren’t actually poor: they have HDTVs, Video Game consoles, smart phones, you name it. Fact check that.

    There you go, perfectly explained. Any questions?

  • Obama Spending My Money on AdWords

    Posted on September 4th, 2009 phpguru No comments

    Nearly all Republicans, and many Democrats have realized that the present administration is spending as much of your money as fast as they possibly can.

    If multi-billion dollar stimulus packages, cash for clunkers and Obamacare weren’t enough, now the Whitehouse is spending money on a Google AdWords campaign too!

    Here’s an ad from Google Syndication that appeared in my Gmail today (Don’t click on the link, please! Just hover and look at the status bar).

    Official Obama Website www.BarackObama.com - Barack Obama Needs Your Help to Change Washington. Sign Up Today!

    Can you believe the audacity? And not of hope, either. The Spender-In-Chief is now hoping to reach consumers who have Internet access, who use Google, but don’t know how to find the guy’s website? I mean, come on! Campaign’s over, bro. You already got elected. I know how to find your site and donate to your cause. I do it every day. It says so on my paycheck stub.

    I hate to keep sounding pessimistic but our debt is now over $11 Trillion Dollars, $500M in interest payments per day, Mr. President.

    Put your AdWords on pause, Mr. President, please!

    And while you’re putting things on pause, how about pausing the spending of my money and the socialization of America?

  • ABC Bans Anti-Obamacare Ad Written by Dick Morris

    Posted on August 25th, 2009 phpguru No comments

    I received this email today from Townhall.com. If you’re still under the impression that the alphabet networks aren’t biased, maybe this will convince you. ABC won’t run a dissenting opinion even if you pay them.

    Dear Townhall Reader:

    I have some very shocking news.

    ABC television has banned our TV ad from airing on its network.

    Frankly, I was stunned when I heard the news from our media buyer yesterday.

    Right now, our TV ad exposing Obamacare is running in 12 states.

    You can see this powerful ad by Going here Now.

    With our success — thanks to your incredible support — we were planning to go national, so we sent the ad to the major networks.

    This TV ad simply tells the truth about Obamacare.

    It was crafted by Dick Morris, the Fox News contributor and famous campaign strategist.

    This powerful ad features a respected medical doctor — a neurosurgeon, in fact — who warns that Obamacare will decimate healthcare for seniors and others in need of life-saving medical procedures.

    As Dr. Cuffe explains in the ad, if Obama gets his way and adds 50 million new patients to the government system, it inevitably will lead to rationing of healthcare procedures and vital medicines for the elderly.

    Dr. Cuffe says universal healthcare has led to this same situation in Canada and England.

    You can see Dr. Cuffe and donate to help air this ad — Go here Now.

    We know why ABC is so afraid of the League’s TV ad. It knows the message resonates with the American people.

    This is the same network that aired an infomercial for the Obama plan directly from the White House.

    Clearly, ABC knows seniors will not be hoodwinked by Obama when they learn the truth.

    Despite ABC’s brazen act of censorship, we need to continue to run this ad on other stations across the nation and on major networks.

    Time is very short, so we really need your help.

    Please Go Here Now to Support This Ad.

    We CAN make a huge difference. The ABC decision proves we are on the right track.

    Please help us today!

    Thank you.

    Sincerely,

    Bob Adams
    Executive Director

  • Farewell War On Terror, Hello New World Order

    Posted on June 13th, 2009 phpguru No comments

    Was Obama put into the White House by the global media elite, to sell a new world order to the American people?

    Did the 125 richest and most influential people in the financial world purposefully orchestrate the sub-prime mortgage lending failure, throwing the U.S. economy into the worst tailspin since the great depression?

    Where did Hillary and Barack disappear to for nearly two days in 2008?

    In Bill O’Reilly’s latest column, entitled Farewell, War On Terror, one of the commenters posted a link to a 2-hour HQ full-length documentary on YouTube called, The Obama Deception. This may be one of the most important works of non-fiction you will watch this year.

    The film has had over 2 million views, it is rated 4.5 out of 5 stars, has received nearly 20,000 ratings and over 53,000 comments.

    A couple of interesting quotes:

    “Inspite of what you might have heard, I wasn’t born in a manger.”   — Obama

    “They put a black face on the new world order, and everybody happy. KRS ain’t buyin’ it.”  – KRS One

    Why Does Obama Hate America So Badly

    Obama in the British Media   

    The Brits see right through Obama & are not afraid to say so.   It’s too bad that the media in the U.S. is just part of Obama’s cheerleading squad, with just a few exceptions.    

    If you haven’t seen this article, Mr. Warner cuts right to the chase, doesn’t mince words, and delivers a punch that may wake you up.

    I really must commend @AcePilot101, @ExpatInTheUSA on truly biting comments.

  • Business Leader’s Open Letter to Obama

    piece of content, I check on Google and Snopes. This one checks out.

    AN OPEN LETTER TO PRESIDENT OBAMA

    By Lou Pritchett

     

    Dear President Obama:

     

    You are the thirteenth President under whom I have lived and unlike any of the others, you truly scare me.

     

    You scare me because after months of exposure, I know nothing about you. 

     

    You scare me because I do not know how you paid for your expensive Ivy League education and your upscale lifestyle and housing with no visible signs of support.

     

    You scare me because you did not spend the formative years of youth  growing up in America and culturally you are not an American.

     

    You scare me because you have never run a company or met a payroll.

     

    You scare me because you have never had military experience, thus don’t understand it at its core.

     

    You scare me because you lack humility and ‘class’, always blaming others.

     

    You scare me because for over half your life you have aligned yourself with radical extremists who hate America and you refuse to publicly denounce these radicals who wish to see America fail.

     

    You scare me because you are a cheerleader for the ‘blame America’ crowd  and deliver this message abroad.

     

    You scare me because you want to change America to a European style country where the government sector dominates instead of the private sector.

     

    You scare me because you want to replace our health care system with a government controlled one.

     

    You scare me because you prefer ‘wind mills’ to responsibly capitalizing  on our own vast oil, coal and shale reserves.

     

    You scare me because you want to kill the American capitalist goose that lays the golden egg which provides the highest standard of living in the world.

     

    You scare me because you have begun to use ‘extortion’ tactics against certain banks and corporations.

     

    You scare me because your own political party shrinks from challenging you on your wild and irresponsible spending proposals.

     

    You scare me because you will not openly listen to or even consider opposing points of view from intelligent people.

     

    You scare me because you falsely believe that you are both omnipotent and omniscient.

     

    You scare me because the media gives you a free pass on everything you do

     

    You scare me because you demonize and want to silence the Limbaughs, Hannitys, O’Relllys and Becks who offer opposing, conservative points of view.

     

    You scare me because you prefer controlling over governing.

     

    Finally, you scare me because if you serve a second term I will probably  not feel safe in writing a similar letter in 8 years.

     

    Lou Pritchett

     

    Note: Lou Pritchett is a former vice president of Procter & Gamble whose career at that company spanned 36 years before his retirement in 1989, an d he is the author of the 1995 business book, Stop Paddling & Start Rocking the Boat.

    Mr. Pritchett confirmed that he was indeed the author of the much-circulated  “open letter.” I did write the ‘you scare me’ letter. I sent it to the  NY Times but they never acknowledged or published it. However, it hit   the internet and according to the experts has had over 500,000 hits.
