First Grandma Marian Robinson to Receive Lifetime $160K Government
Pension

Washington D.C. – First Grandma Marian Robinson, 79, will receive a lifetime 160K government pension when she leaves the White House next year,according to congressional budget statements.

According to documents obtained through the Freedom of
Information Act (FOIA), Mrs. Robinson earned the lifetime pension for “services rendered as full-time/in-home caregiver” for granddaughters Malia, 18, and Sasha, 15, during President Obama’s two terms in office.

In January of 2009, it was reported that Mrs. Robinson was living in the White House full-time to tend to her granddaughters. She was the first live-in grandmother at the White House since Elivera M. Doud, the mother of Mamie Eisenhower, during the Eisenhower
Administration.

Critics say Mrs. Robinson should not profit from something as simple as taking care of family.

Sally Kellner, volunteer/activist
for the National Taxpayers
Union, says this is a prime example of needless spending.

“I think it’s ridiculous that taxpayers must pay this woman a lifetime salary for something everyday Americans do for free.

We take care of our families because we love them, not for profit.”

When asked if Mrs. Robinson’s lifetime pension was justified, Senator Mike Enzi (R-WY), Chairman of the Senate Budget
Committee, declined to comment but said a special oversight committee would review all post-Obama Administration budgetary
obligations.

Before her son-in-law became President of the United States, Mrs. Robinson had never been abroad.

Now, after almost eight years of being the nation’s Grandmother-In-Chief, she’s a seasoned world traveler who has, accompanied by her granddaughters, been to Senegal, Tanzania, China and Italy, where she even met the Pope.

“She’s  been the rock of the family,” says Obama family friend and biographer, Peter Slevin. “It’s been a real blessing for the girls (Malia &  Sasha) to have their grandma with them during these formative years,” he said.

Shortly after the 2008 presidential election, President Obama called Robinson “One of the unsung heroes” of his campaign, and said, “We couldn’t have done it without her.”

First Lady Michelle Obama has said that if Robinson had not been available to step in and watch over the girls, Obama might never have launched his campaign.

While holding no official job title, Mrs. Robinson likely qualified for her  lifetime pension under the “optional” eligibility requirement for the Civil Service Retirement
Act (CSRS).

Truth is stranger than fiction!
Anyone want to tage a shot at the odds of this ever happening again?

For those who have served on a jury, this one is something to think about.
Just when you think
 you have heard everything!  Do you like to read a good murder mystery?
Not even Law and Order
 would attempt to capture this mess.
This is an unbelievable twist of fate!

At the 1994 annual awards dinner given for Forensic Science (AAFS), President Dr. Don Harper Mills
astounded his audience with the
 legal complications of a bizarre death.
Here is the
 story: 

On March 23, 1994, the medical examiner viewed the body of Ronald Opus and concluded that he died
from a shotgun wound to the head.
Mr. Opus had jumped
 from the top of a ten-story building intending to commit suicide.  He left a note to
that effect indicating his
 despondency. 

As he fell past the ninth floor, his life was interrupted by a shotgun blast passing through a window which
killed him instantly. Neither the
 shooter nor the deceased was aware that a safety net had been installed just
below the eighth floor level to protect some building workers and that Ronald Opus would not have been able
to complete his suicide the way he had
 planned.

The room on the ninth floor, where the shotgun blast emanated, was occupied by an elderly man and his wife.
They were arguing vigorously and he
 was threatening her with a shotgun! The man was so upset that when he pulled 
the trigger, he completely
 missed his wife and the pellets went through the window, striking Mr. Opus.

When one intends to kill subject ‘A’ but kills subject ‘B’ in the attempt, one is guilty of the murder of subject ‘B.’

When confronted with the murder charge, the old man and his wife were both adamant that they thought 
the shotgun was not loaded. The oldman said it was a long-standing habit to threaten his wife with the
unloaded
 shotgun.  He had no intention to murder her. Therefore the killing of Mr. Opus appeared to be an accident;
that is, assuming the gun had been accidentally loaded.

The continuing investigation turned up a witness who saw the old couple’s son loading the shotgun about six weeks
prior to the fatal 
accident.  It transpired that the old lady had cut off her son’s financial support and the son, 
knowing the propensity of his father to use the shotgun threateningly, loaded the gun with the expectation that
his father
 would shoot his mother.  

Since the loader of the gun was aware of this, he was guilty of the murder even though he didn’t actually pull the
trigger.  The case now becomes one of murder on the part of the son for the death of Ronald Opus.

Now comes the exquisite twist..
Further investigation
 revealed that the son was, in fact, Ronald Opus.
He had become
 increasingly despondent over the failure of his attempt to engineer his mother’s murder.
This led him to jump
 off the ten-story building on March 23rd, only to be killed by a shotgun blast passing
through the ninth story
 window.

The son, Ronald Opus, had actually murdered himself!
So the medical
 examiner closed the case as a suicide.

A POEM TO WHICH I CAN RELATE VIA MY MOM

A POEM TO WHICH I CAN RELATE

I remember the bologna of my Childhood
And the bread that we cut with a knife
When the Children helped with the housework
And the men went to work not the wife.

The cheese never needed a fridge
And the bread was so crusty and hot
The Children were seldom unhappy
And the Wife was content with her lot.

I remember the milk from the bottle
With the yummy cream on the top
Our dinner came hot from the oven,
And not from a freezer; or shop.

The kids were a lot more contented,
They didn’t need money for kicks,
Just a game with their friends in the road,
And sometimes the Saturday flicks.

I remember the shop on the corner,
Where cookies for pennies were sold
Do you think I’m a bit too nostalgic?
Or is it….I’m just getting Old?

Bathing was done in a wash tub,
With plenty of rich foamy suds
But the ironing seemed never ending
As Mama pressed everyone’s ‘duds’.

I remember the slap on my backside,
And the taste of soap if I swore
Anorexia and diets weren’t heard of
And we hadn’t much choice what we wore.

Do you think that bruised our ego?
Or our initiative was destroyed?
We ate what was put on the table
And I think life was better enjoyed.

If you can remember those days…
Continue to enjoy your Retirement
& GOOD BLESS YOU.

>  THE LIST:

I just received this from a good friend and want to share with you…

I like the way this is phrased because it recognizes that the political class are “bought and paid for”.  I believe that the basic premise is correct:

If you listen to Trump, he is hitting many of the hot buttons of the electorate.  But you have to listen to him and not be distracted by his showmanship (which is designed to give him free publicity since he’s paying for his own campaign).

I like the list of 13 things that I, as a senior American citizen, want. Trump is at least talking about issues that most Americans are concerned about.

My mantra about Trump is this:  We are usually in agreement with most of what he says but wish someone else was saying it.  We are getting older and our tickers aren’t what they used to be …

so here is
Our Special Bucket List for 2016 ….

 HERE IS WHAT WE WANT… 

1.  Hillary: held accountable for her previous wrongs! 

2. Put “GOD” back in America !!! 

3. Borders: Closed or tightly guarded! 

4. Congress: On the same retirement & healthcare plans as everybody else. 

5. Congress: Obey its own laws NOW! 

6. Language: English only! 

7. Culture: Constitution and the Bill of Rights! 

8. Drug Free: Mandatory Drug Screening before & during Welfare! 

9. Freebies: NONE to Non-Citizens! 

10. Budget: Balance the damn thing! 

11. Foreign Countries: Stop giving them our money!  Charge them for our help!  We need it here. 

12. Fix the TAX CODE! 

And most of all. 

13. “RESPECT OUR MILITARY AND OUR FLAG!!” 

Funny Signs From My Mom

“Oh dear God, are you kidding me?!” I yelled to Noone

My mother sent me an email containing the following statements, which at first I thought must be a hoax but Mark later told me it’s true.  Am I really the only one who hasn’t  heard of this?

“How would you feel if you
drove  into a town here in the United States and
found that many  of the street signs were in
Arabic only with no English?

Then you look around and discover that many of
the signs on the  businesses were also in Arabic.

Not possible you say? Think again!   Welcome to
Dearborn,  Michigan.

Steve Tarani, author and speaker recounts what
he saw when he rode with a member of the
Detroit  Metro SWAT Police as they drove
around Detroit and into Dearborn:

“The street signs suddenly went from
English to Arabic. There wasn’t a single English word on
any  shop or any street sign.

And in fact, these little yellow
signs  were posted all along the edges. Jeremy
said to me, ‘this is it. We don’t go past this line.’ And I
said to Jeremy, ‘what do you  mean?  You guys are
Detroit Metro. You’re the SWAT team. You can
go anywhere you want. What if you get a call over there?’

He said, ‘this is it, it’s hazardous for our team if we go past
this  line.  I have seen it with my own eyes, witnessed it in the backseat of a car and it is for real.’

‘No-go zones exist in the United States.  Dearborn, Michigan is not the only  place that these settlements exist.  They are spread out over the  country in various cities. There’s an estimate of over 5,000 known terrorist cells in the United States.’

‘However our most persistent and significant threat right now, to us here today this morning, is the homegrown violent extremists.’

Some people try to discount Tarani’s account but I’ve seen too many reports that have come out of  Dearborn that would tend to support his account of the Muslim takeover of the American city.

Christians have been only attacked by Muslims without prosecution. They’ve also been told to stay away from the city’s Islamic festival and even banned from talking to people on the public streets outside the  festival.

The  Muslim influence is so strong in Dearborn that the high schools hold girls only proms because Muslim girls are not allowed to socialize or dance with boys.
These proms are religious based and no one has said anything about a violation of church and  state or tried to stop them.

Christian students are banned from having Christmas parties, prayer meetings or Baccalaureate services, but Muslims are allowed to pray in school and hold  Islamic proms.

You have to ask why organizations like the ACLU,  American Atheists, Freedom From Religion Foundation and Americans United for Separation of Church and State remain silent about what is happening in Dearborn schools.

Murfreesboro, Tennessee is fast becoming a second Muslim controlled city like Dearborn and there are others on the way.

I have friends in the United Kingdom who have told me of how Muslims have taken over entire cities and areas in their country. What they tell me is that it all started with cities like Dearborn and Murfreesboro and just continues to spread.

One of my friends compared Islam in England to a cancer that continues to spread and contaminate everything it encounters. In time it will spread to the
point that the country dies from it and becomes the home of a religion that teaches hate, bloodshed and sharia law.

Like a cancer, the only way to save the nation is to stop the spread of the  religion of terrorism. Then he told me that in our modern sophisticated world full of freedoms and rights that it’s impossible to stop the spread of Islam without igniting a  worldwide religious war.

Now  realize that Barack Hussein Obama has been actively inviting  Muslims to come to the US.

He is also advocating opening our doors to up to 7 million Syrian Muslim refugees and there is no telling how many terrorists ware hiding among them.

That would be like trying to cure a patient by injecting him  with massive doses of cancer cells.

I  have to honestly say that the future of America is not looking very bright and to be honest, I don’t know what to do to change it other than make others aware of it and encourage everyone to  get on their knees and pray for Christian revival.~”

“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children
in the bloodstream.  It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.”    Ronald  Reagan

I don’t know about anybody else but this ignites such a rage in my spirit that I am beside myself.  Not since when I escaped my abuser have I felt it boil over so uncontrollably.  At the same time my blood runs cold, sending a shiver of dread down my spine.   I would have bet you a million dollars when I was growing up that nothing could ever make me say that I was ashamed of my country or president!

Today I must say, to be perfectly honest, I don’t think you could pay me a million dollars to say that I believe anything this president or his administration says or does!  From the very first day that he disrespected Israel and President Benjamin Netanyahu I felt a dark shadow of foreboding pass over my soul and I was disgusted beyond belief.

With each step away from God and our Christian values that this country, as a whole, has taken, that disgust has grown and festered, becoming a deeper, fuller loathing for what we have become as a nation.

No longer are we the symbol of democracy, liberty, morality, justice, Christianity, or defenders of freedom for the world.  That once bright beacon has become but a candle light blowing in the wind.  Our image deliberately tarnished, military weakened beyond all comprehension; civilian unity twisted and turned inside out to the level of dissention tantamount to the Civil War times;  suspicion and distrust sown country wide to stop any hope for unification; murder, genocide, mutilation of our future generation has been condoned and financially supported by the very ones who were entrusted to protect them; the atrocities go on and on.  It makes me sick to my stomach, ashamed right down to my soul and carrying a spiritual rage that I need to find a direction for or I think that I might go insane.  Is that what’s called “holy anger”?

I sound like a ranting maniac, don’t I?  Believe me, I’ve raked myself over the coals every which way but loose just trying to figure out if I’ve been bitten by the wild conspiracy bug, which has poisoned my mind to reason and already driven me quite mad!  Just kidding, I’m slightly exaggerating there but you get my drift.

I really don’t think that I’m literally going crazy.  Sometimes I think that maybe my previous encounter with heaven has left me with a type of spiritual awareness, maybe, and I can see/feel the underlying evil workings going on.

Let me give you a very simplified example of what I mean:
Sara and I were watching the movie “Easy A” the other night.  As it was reaching the middle to latter part of the movie I realized that I had become irritated by something.  It hit me like a brick between the eyes when I took a minute of pause and thought a little harder about it.  I pointed it out to Sara and she said it occurred to her as well at another section.  We agreed that every blatantly disrespectful phrase or cuss word had been edited out but every “God damn or Jesus Christ” originally scripted still remained.  I can’t point my finger at this entity or that saying they are the ones conspiring to do this but I can say that there is an underlying evil influencing those that be to accomplish their goal of separating God from His children.

I know that I have thrown a lot out there for you to consider but I would be most appreciative of hearing your thoughts about it.  I had to quit reading a lot of posts on Facebook dealing with these subjects because I was getting so angry and disgruntled that I wanted to go postal, if you can picture that, lol!  But that doesn’t mean my mind was shut down.

This is not an open invitation to argue about it.  I will not respond or post any comments that are left for me with that mind-set.  I would just like to have an honest, respectful exchange of viewpoints on it.  I don’t think there is any doubt what this blog stands for or what I believe.  Those with similar backgrounds and upbringing, those who are Christian in other words, I am actively soliciting your thoughts!

With my love and God bless you all,   Terri
