“Thanks to the Affordable Healthcare Act (a.k.a. Obamacare), I used the refund for the overpayment of my health-care insurance to buy a new deep freeze, to replace the one that was 30 years old and on its last legs! Thank you, President Obama!”

“Folks, remember when our generals were known for their conquests on the battlefield and not the bedroom? Remember when generals would be given parades when they retired and not reduced one star in rank because they were parading around and living like Middle-Eastern potentates? What happened? Did they quit teaching ethics at West Point?”

“How dare a few nuts decide to secede for us to leave the United States of America! I stood the line for you, others gave all to this union. Leave this country if you don’t like it but never tell us who or what to do for you. Get on your knees and thank God for what you have, or take a walk.”

“It is really funny to hear the Republicans whine regarding the Democrats’ lies about Romney casting him in a bad light during the election campaign. It was not lies but the truth that did him in. All Romney needed to do was tell the truth!”

“Most Americans wonder what President Barack Obama’s next term means for Christians — while Dr. Barbara A. Thompson, a Florida A&M University professor in Tallahassee, has just released a cult book titled ‘The Gospel According to Apostle Barack’. The concept of the book, divining political secrets, is based on many of Obama’s speeches.”

“Now I’ve seen it all. A billionaire coal mine owner will lay off 160 coal miners because Obama was re-elected. Obama should put the laid-off miners in the job drone training program over their old bosses’ neighborhood. God forbid anything go wrong. It doesn’t matter if you are a coal miner, Medicare recipient or a billionaire taker maker job creator getting a tax break. It seems we all live under the threat of someone or something.”

“Was Gandy a traitor to England? No, and George Washington was no traitor to England. Sure, had he lost, he could have been considered a traitor by England. But he operated under the Declaration of Independence which formally withdrew the 13 colonies from England. Now, Benedict Arnold was a traitor. As commander of the Revolutionary garrison at West Point, he sent messages to the English commander in New York, coaching him on the revolutionary army’s plans for action. Washington, who did not trust Arnold, exposed him when one of those messengers got caught. The difference? Arnold was commissioned in the revolutionary army as was Washington. We honor Washington and we revere Gandy. We ought to honor confederate soldiers, too. One won, the others lost. That fact does not a traitor make.”
