Obama Flowers

Subject: ObamaFlowers

> (Receptionist) Hello, Welcome to ObamaFlowers, My name is Trina. How
> can I help you?
> (Customer) Hello, I received an email from Professional Flowers stating that my flower order has been canceled and I should go to your exchange to reorder it. I tried your website, but it seems like it is not working. So I am calling the 800 number.
> (Receptionist) Yes, I am sorry about the website. It should be fixed by the end of November. But I can help you.
> (Customer) Thanks, I ordered a "Spring Bouquet" for our anniversary, and wanted it delivered to my wife's work..
> (Receptionist Interrupting) Sir, "Spring Bouquets" do not meet our minimum standards, I will be happy to provide you with Red Roses.
> (Customer) But I have always ordered "Spring Bouquets", done it for years, my wife likes them.
> (Receptionist) Roses are better, sir, I am sure your wife will love them.
> (Customer) Well, how much are they?
> (Receptionist) It depends sir, do you want our Bronze, Silver, Gold or Platinum package.
> (Customer) What's the difference?
> (Receptionist) 6, 12,18, or 24 Red Roses.
> (Customer) The Silver package may be okay, how much is it?
> (Receptionist) It depends sir, what is you monthly income?
> (Customer) What does that have to do with anything?
> (Receptionist) I need that to determine your government flower subsidy, then I can determine how much your out of pocket cost will be. But if your income is below our minimums for a subsidy, then I
> can refer you to our FlowerAid department.
> (Customer) FlowerAid?
> (Receptionist) Yes, Flowers are a Right, everyone has a right to flowers. So, if you can't afford them, then the government will
> supply them free of charge.
> (Customer) Who said they were a Right?
> (Receptionist) Congress passed it, the President signed it and the Supreme Court found it Constitutional.
> (Customer) Whoa.....I don't remember seeing anything in the Constitution regarding Flowers as a Right.
> (Receptionist) It is not really a Right in the Constitution, but  ObamaFlowers is Constitutional because the Supreme Court Ruled it a "Tax". Taxes are Constitutional. But we feel it is a Right.
> (Customer) I don't believe this....
> (Receptionist) It's the law of the land sir. Now, we anticipated most people would go for the Silver Package, so what is you monthly income sir?
> (Customer) Forget it, I think I will forego the flowers this year...
> (Receptionist) In that case sir, I will still need your monthly income.
> (Customer) Why?
> (Receptionist) To determine what your 'non-participation' cost would be.
> (Customer) WHAT???? Your can't charge me for NOT buying flowers!!!
> (Receptionist) It's the law of the land, sir, approved by the Supreme Court. It's $9.50 or 1% of your monthly income.....
> (Customer, interrupting) This iridiculous, I'll pay the $9.50..

> (Receptionist) Sir, it is the $9.50 or 1% of your monthly income, whichever is greater.

> (Customer) ARE YOU KIDDING ME??? What a ripoff!!

> (Receptionist) Actually sir, it is a good deal. Next year it will be 2%.
> (Customer) Look, I'm going to call my Congressmember to find out what's going on here. This is ridiculous. I'm not going to pay it.
> (Receptionist) Sorry to hear that sir, that's why I had the NSA track this call and obtain the make and model of the cell phone you are using.
> (Customer) Why does the NSA need to know what kind of CELL PHONE I AM USING????
> (Receptionist) So they can get your GPS coordinates sir.

> (Door Bell rings followed immediately by a loud knock on the door)

> (Receptionist) That would be the IRS sir. Thanks for calling ObamaFlowers, have a nice day...and God Bless America

Halloween or Government holiday which is more scary

I have lived through many US presidents, some of which were even been helpful to small business and job creators in general, this one I find is the most divisive along with setting our country back at least 30 years.
It is starting to show that Obamacare will cost the average taxpayer more money, not less.  Those who do not pay taxes and are on public assistance and who are here illegally never paid for health insurance and just showed up at emergency rooms and were cared for.  So who the hell do you think is going to pay for your insurance on the Obamacare plan, me. Nothing is free.  I did not need the government to tell me to pay for insurance as I have been paying for mine along with my employees for over 40 years.  Forty years ago it was call a 'benefit' not a tax as clarified by the few human beings who sit on the Supreme Court.
Now as far as the closing of the government and the government holiday for it's employees; if these folks are 'non-essential' then why do we need them?  Good opportunity to close some agencies and make smaller the office.
Here in Salem Mass all hell (pun intended) broke out and the main stream media went in full force to say that Halloween would surely be canceled because the government information offices would be closed. Really?  As with the parks and Old Ironsides, volunteers stepped forward to fill the bill sort of speak and scary characters are roaming the streets of Salem as I speak some are even politicians!

Keep your eyes on the curtain and what's behind it



 Soon will be another anniversary of 911 and the Benghazi rumor.  In the eyes of the world today we are a weaker country.  This president said he would change us and he has. We are weaker, poorer, dumber; careful what you wish for.
  Yes, some will watch his speech on Tuesday night as he attempts to persuade those already not on the new war bandwagon to climb aboard while the same time he will show how upset about the happenings in the Middle East he is.  Hell, where has he been the past 4 years?   I will call my Senators and ask them to put me in the no column on still another 'war' we will not win.  We are to support people who hate us and are killing Christians and eating hearts of their enemies?
  Please pay attention to what is happening in our own country and how we are told that bigger government is what we should be happy with.  Obamacare, illegal immigration, gun control, and how fat we have become are the issues to consider after we say no we are not the world's peacekeepers and remember when the last time America did win a war anyway...............

Driving Miss Daisy or Driving me Crazy

              Federal funding for the MBTA has been cut in half.  What you say, how can that be?

    Officials at the MBTA said the agency applied for more than $15 million in security grants, but will receive just $3.25 million, down from $6.6 million in 2012.
I just hope the news came down before the new video hit the airways.
Last month, Representative Bill Keating revealed the Boston area had received more than $17.5 million in total homeland security grants, an increase of nearly $7 million.

new safety video

  The "T" has been in debt for years so find ways to cut the budget not dance about the failure..........
The video was filmed in May in various train stations, including the Red Line’s Harvard stop, and cost roughly $10,000 to make.

The Second Amendment being challanged again where the fight for freedom all begain......................

 The wisdom of my Democratic party in Massachusetts never ceases to amaze me.  New gun laws are to be proposed to make the politically uniformed feel safer and give more control to the government by taking away said.  We are at the brink of no return as government takes over the care and mind of the citizenry and of those who soon will be allowed to stay after crossing our boarder illegally.  All that government is doing just makes it more important for the legal gun owner to keep his legally obtained firearm and not make it more difficult to buy ammo, when of course ammo can be found and purchased.  
Why is the government buying up all the ammo and why are police forces around the country purchasing heavy armored vehicles that once would be seen only in the military?  Is something about to happen on our own ground in regards to higher taxes, more not working, and more soon to be coming??????
Politely but firmly urge them to abandon their anti-gun agenda and start working to restore your rights.

Insist they OPPOSE bills like H.47 -- Governor Deval Patrick's draconian anti-gun proposal that would rival or exceed the new Connecticut and New York laws.

His bill would enact a strict gun and magazine ban, outlawing the possession of magazines and firearms that can hold more than seven rounds of ammunition. It would also impose a universal gun registration scheme.
Unfortunately H.47 is just the tip of the iceberg!!!

The following is just a sample from the committee's agenda:
*** H 3255 -- Creates a statewide gun offender registry, putting gun owners on par with sex offenders;

*** S 1163 -- A bill to study government-mandated GPS devices on firearms;

*** S 1157 -- A GUN CONFISCATION bill;

*** S 1120 -- A so-called "gun-trafficking" bill aimed at criminalizing more gun sales;

*** H 3430 -- Creates a "Firearm and Mental Health Fitness Information Registry;" and,

*** H 3270 -- A bill to expand the list of excuses to deny you a firearms license.
