What's up with all these "co-exist" bumper stickers?"

While helping my daughter, Sarah, in her recent move from Paducah, KY to Somersworth, New Hampshire,
I kept noticing one bumper sticker which appeared more and more frequently, the closer I got to liberal and enlightened New England. Of course, I'm speaking about the "Coexist" bumper sticker which can be seen on the back window or bumper of Toyota Prius' with the occupants inside singing "Cum-bay-a" and "We are the World."

I'd like to see these drivers sport their "Coexist" bumper stickers in places like Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, or Northern Nigeria or Somalia. It's really easy to be tolerant when you're driving your Prius in Stamford, CT. and don't have radical Muslims threatening to behead you.

In case you haven't seen the "Coexist" bumper sticker, here's what it says and means:

  • C = The crescent moon representing Islam. 
  • O = Buddhism
  • E =  Science-the scientific equation
  • X = The star of David, representing Judaism. 
  • I =  Paganism: Wiccan
  • S = The Chinese yin-yang symbol.
  • T = The cross representing Christianity
On the surface, it seems like a reasonable sentiment: "Can't we all put aside our religious differences and get along?"

These same individuals would find it difficult to co-exist with former President George Bush, or Rush Limbaugh, or the Tea Party. It's easy to call for tolerance for a religion, it's another thing to be tolerant and loving toward the next Tea Party conservative you run into, or find yourself in a car with someone listening to Rush Limbaugh or Glenn Beck. How's that co-existence working out, then?

The liberal mind thinks this bumper sticker is really nice and shows great tolerance and enlightenment. However, I'm sure that if they really gave it some serious thought, they'd realize that these religions DON'T worship the same god, DON'T believe in the same the same things and DON'T teach the same values. There is an incredible gulf between each of these religious beliefs. Islam is a religion that doesn't believe in coexistence with anyone. If you are not a Muslim, you are considered an infidel. There is no in-between. 

For the Christian and the Jew, there is no other god but Jehovah. The reason Jews have never assimilated
throughout the centuries due to their stubborn adherence to Yahweh as the one true God. And, Christians, who also believe in Yahweh as Almighty God, also believe that He has revealed Himself to mankind through his son, Jesus, the Messiah who said, "I am the way, the truth and the life. No man comes to the Father (God) except by me." (John 14:6), You can't  be a follower of Jesus Christ and believe that many roads lead to God and that all religions are equally valid. 

So when you think about it, these drivers with the "coexist" bumper stickers are either naive, ignorant or delusional. They can sing "cum-bay-a" and listen to NPR during their rush-hour drive, but they are no more enlightened or tolerant than the Muslim radical who's sitting in a cave in Yemen.

Two liberals discover they're footing the bill for Obamacare! Priceless!!

Cindy Vinson and Tom Waschura are big believers in Obamacare. They are proud to say they helped elect and re-elect President Barack Obama. Yet, they were floored last week when they opened their bills: Their policies were being replaced with pricier plans that conform to all the requirements of the new health care law.

Vinson, of San Jose, will pay $1,800 more a year for an individual policy, while Waschura, of Portola will cough up almost $10,000 more for insurance for his family of four.

This much quickly became clear: People with no pre-existing conditions like Vinson "I was laughing at Boehner -- until the mail came today,"
But people with no pre-existing conditions like Vinson, a 60-year-old retired teacher, and Waschura, a 52-year-old self-employed engineer, are making up the difference.

Waschura said, referring to House Speaker John Boehner, who is leading the Republican charge to defund Obamacare. "I really don't like the Republican tactics, but at least now I can understand why they are so pissed about this. When you take $10,000 out of my family's pocket each year, that's otherwise disposable income or retirement savings that will not be going into our local economy."

Both Vinson and Waschura have adjusted gross incomes greater than four times the federal poverty level -- the cutoff for a tax credit. And while both said they anticipated their rates would go up, they didn't realize they would rise so much.

"Of course, I want people to have health care," Vinson said. "I just didn't realize I would be the one who was going to pay for it personally." 

Priceless. Who did you think was going to pay for it, Mr. Vinson of San Jose? 

Thank you Tom, for sponsoring me! I have been against this bill from the beginning although I will get this for free. So this makes me feel a bit better and not so guilty because you willingly voted for this. I will think of you every time I visit the doctors office. And you can think of me every time you cannot afford your vacation.

In the immortal words of Rodney King, "Can't we all just get along?"

Can't we just stop all this fighting? In the immortal words of Rodney King, "Ca-ca-ca-can't we all this just along?"

The Republican house of representatives has voted 4 times to fully fund the government, everything except Obamacare. It's not the Republicans keeping people out of the World War II
Update: Check out the latest National Review editorial: "Vindictive Shutdown Theatre". This administration going so far as to block roads leading to Mt. Rushmore so you can't even view it. These types of shutdowns are labor-intensive and require more manpower, effort and dollars than keeping the monument or memorial open to the public.

As Jonah Goldberg writes in the National Review, "Obama has always had a bit of a vindictive streak when it comes to politics…President Obama and the Democrats deserve the lion's share of blame for not only prolonging it (for the government shutdown) but also making it as painful as possible…The National Park Service which has somehow become the unofficial goon squad of American liberalism, reversed course and let American World War II vets visit the WWII memorial in Washington D.C."

It actually costs the government MORE money to try to keep WWII vets out of an open-air memorial than to just let it be. But this is how liberals typically make their point--they want to inflict as much pain as possible on the American people.

Between 2500 & 5000 American soldiers were killed during the D-Day
Invasion. There is still no exact count of how many GI's lost their lives
during the initial invasion.
Maybe you saw the news story of American tourists who had traveled to Omaha Beach in Normandy, France to pay their respects to friends and loved ones who are among the 9,387 military dead at the Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial. Here's what is despicable about
all this: We can find the money to send workers to these memorials to keep people out, even under threat of arrest, but we can't come up with the dough to keep these most hallowed memorials open. And these are OPEN-AIR memorials which require little or no upkeep. What kind of supervision do you need over the visitors who want to visit the memorial graves at Normandy?

Normandy American Cemetery, shut down by Obama administration
But this is typical of this White House which loves to inflict pain on the American people. Remember, this is the same White House which still finds the money for travel, vacations, and White House concerts but trying to make a statement about the seriousness of the sequester, they closed down White House tours.

The President and the Democrats are blaming the Republicans for holding America hostage. But it's really the President who refuses to negotiate with the Republicans, who is truly enjoying this government shutdown. This is having zero effect on his golf game. But to the dismay of those tourists who have planned for months to visit the memorials of loved ones who gave their lives in the fight for our freedom and liberty, this is no game, it's another example of a President who takes delight in bringing pain and disappointment to the American people, even on foreign soil.

Attorney General Holder speaks in "code"--but I've broken the code, using my special decoder ring.

As I write this post, I'm watching "World War Z" and it's kind of hard to follow the zombie attack on Jerusalem (didn't know zombies were "anti-semitic") and talk about politics. But here goes...bear with me.

Attorney General Eric Holder and the Justice Department on Monday SUED North Carolina to block new state voting rules, part of a growing battle between the Democrat administration and Republican-controlled state houses over election laws and race. Holder said that new legislation in North Carolina would make it harder for many minority voters to participate in the electoral process. He was speaking in a special code but thankfully, I've broken the code, using my Capt. Midnight decoder ring which I received from sending in 3 seals from Ovaltine, the drink of champions.

Now when Eric Holder says that it makes it harder for "many minority voters" to participate in the electoral process, he's not talking about those who are Chinese, or Vietnamese, or those in the Indian community--no, this is "code" (which I have "decoded" using my special Capt.Midnight decoder ring) for black Americans or African-Americans. Apparently, Holder thinks that if you are black, you are too dumb to get an ID, or participate in the electoral process without some form of fraud. If I were black, I would be so offended, I'd grab the nearest microphone to tell off Holder that I don't need his help, and I'm NOT being disenfranchised from the electoral process. I'd tell Eric Holder to mind his own business and stop all this race-baiting. 

Yes, it's no secret that Holder is a true-blue racist. The VOTER ID threatens no one's rights. It ONLY makes it hard for Obama and Democrats to perpetuate voter fraud.
  • You need a photo ID to get a drink.
  • You need a photo ID to get on a plane.
  • You need a photo ID to rent a car, or to rent equipment.
  • You need a photo ID to cash a check.
  • You need a photo ID to enroll in social security or get food stamps or welfare.
  • You need a photo ID to rent an apt. or buy a house or get a mortgage.
  • You need a photo ID to buy Sudafed.

Let's just say it right out. Democrats want every illegal, ineligible and dead person to be able to cast a vote and be able to do it multiple times in multiple precincts. They know which way those votes will go and are willing to sacrifice the integrity of the system and effectively cancel out MY vote to retain power. To top it off, they pull out the trusty race card in an attempt to justify it and the media is an oh so willing accomplice. 

If you don't have a photo ID in America in 2013, you're too stupid to vote anyway!
