A rare breed, a true Native Floridian, whose family has lived out in more rural parts of the state for many generations and continues to do so. Known to be very self-sufficient by growing or hunting their own food and building their own homes. Not at all like what most people nowadays picture as a Floridian. A Florida Cracker is a true Southerner.

30 Jan 12 Spit on the sidewalk

I know liberals will get after me for using spit as the example.. so I’ll say “apply a drop of water” instead..

When I was maybe 8 years old my parents took me to Atlanta.. Being a Civil Engineer, knew many things about the geography of America.  As we passed a certain sidewalk in Atlanta, my dad said “If you apply a drop of water on the sidewalk right here it will split in two and go in opposite directions.  One 1/2 will end up in the Gulf of Mexico, the other 1/2 will end up in the Atlantic.

I think our election choices of Gingrich and Romney are pretty much like that.  The choice really is just a fraction of an inch to the left or a fraction of an inch to the right.   We see our choice  as being very big differences, either the Gulf of Mexico or the Atlantic.. however after its said and done the drop of water still ends up in the oceans of the world…

Let all try to remember this and save some spit for the fight against Obama…

21 Jan 12 Obama, Abbot and Costello explain Gov statistics

US Dept of labor statistics as reported by Abbott and Costello

Costello:  I want to talk about the unemployment rate in America.

Abbott:      Good subject, terrible times, it’s 9%

Costello:  That many people are out of work.

Abbott:      No that’s 17%

Costello:  You just said 9%.

Abbott:      9% unemployed.

Costello:  Right 9% out of work.

Abbott:      No that’s 17%.

Costello:  Okay so it’s 17% unemployed?

Abbott:      No that’s 9%.

Costello:  Wait a minute, is it 9% or 17%?

Abbott:      9% are unemployed.  17% are out of work.

Costello:  If you’re out of work you are unemployed.

Abbott:      No you can’t count the out-of-work as the unemployed. You have to look for work to be unemployed.

Costello:  BUT THEY ARE OUT OF WORK!!!

Abbott:      No, you miss the point.

Costello:  What point?

Abbott:      Some one who doesn’t look for work can’t be counted with those who look for work, it wouldn’t be fair.

Costello:  To who?

Abbott:      The Unemployed.

Costello:  But they are all out of work.

Abbott:      No, the unemployed are actively looking for work … those who are out of work stopped looking. They gave up, and if you give up you are no longer in the ranks of the unemployed.

Costello:  So if you’re off the unemployment role, that would count as less unemployment?

Abbott:      Unemployment would go down, Absolutely!

Costello:  The unemployment just goes down because you don’t look for work?

Abbott:      Absolutely it goes down that’s how you get 9%, otherwise it would be 17%. You don’t want to read about 17% unemployment do ya?

Costello:  That would be frightening.

Abbott:      Absolutely.

Costello:  Wait, I got a question for you, that means that they’re two ways to bring down the unemployment number?

Abbott:      Two ways is correct.

Costello:  Unemployment can go down if someone gets a job?

Abbott:      Correct.

Costello:  And unemployment can also go down if you stop looking for a job?

Abbott:      Bingo. (more…)

Many have explained redistribution with the following story

http://www.TheFlaCracker.com/?p=381

However that sadly is only 1/2 of the story.

The other half?

Tell a F student he can VOTE to take grades from the A student to change his F to a C (and the EVIL smart, hard working kids grade from an A to a C) and you teach LIBERALISM and REDISTRIBUTION

15 Jan 12 Tebow

Its always very interesting listening to all this Tebow hype.

The boy just wants to play football..

All of the issues about Tebow are NOT about Tebow but about the people “reporting” these issues.

I think for the most part, people that have trouble with Tebow basically have their own problems and Tebow really is just the reminder of their problem. I suppose that problem is disdain for Christianity. You see it all the time, where people attack Christianity and some guy praying but

11 Jan 12 Class envy vs entitlement envy

Democrats got into power using class envy. Hate the rich. They will fail because of entitlement envy.

Entitlement envy is where they are shown that GOV is broke and someone on entitlements will lose theirs FIRST.

With each lightbulb over a democrats head a future conservative is born
