The Comeback Team: Romney and Ryan

August 13, 2012 8:42 am 0 comments

paul ryan bowhunterMitt Romney just announced his choice for Vice-President — Congressman Paul Ryan (age 42).

Ryan grew up in Janesville, Wisconsin, and is serving his 7th term in the U. S. House (since 1999). He is Catholic, pro-family, and pro-sanctity of every life.

When he was 16, Paul found that his father (a lawyer) had died in his sleep from a heart attack. Saving up his Social Security benefits, Paul was able to go to Miami University in Ohio and in 1992, earned a bachelor’s degree in economics and political science.

Paul Ryan met Janna Little (from Oklahoma) when she was a tax attorney in Arlington, Virginia. They married in 2000 and have three young children – Liza, Charlie, and Sam.

Paul Ryan loves to hunt, fish, bow-hunt, listens to music on his iPod, and either sleeps in his Capitol office or at his sister-in-law’s house in Bethesda, Maryland, when Congress is in session.

Ryan worked for Jack Kemp (who died in 2009); Paul Ryan has stated that Jack Kemp was his mentor and taught him economics.

Ryan is the Chair of the House Budget Committee and is a Senior Member of the House Ways and Means Committee. He is said to be the most influential GOP policymaker.

Ryan is the author of “The Path to Prosperity” (http://paulryan.house.gov/issues/issue/?IssueID=56750 ) which is a detailed plan to tackle our country’s crushing debt by helping to spur job creation and stop spending money that our government simply does not have.

Ryan knows that Medicare is to go broke by 2016. His plan guarantees that all seniors 55 and older will see no Medicare changes. However, the Romney/Ryan Plan will save Medicare for those 55 and younger by letting them invest their own money for the future.

While Paul Ryan was giving his speech this morning, I copied down as best I could some of his statements:

There are those in Washington, D. C. who are more worried about not getting elected than they are about the next generation.

The USA is facing debt, doubt, and despair.

Our crushing debt is not a new normal and is the result of misguided policies.

Mitt and I stand for economic growth, job creation, and fiscal stability.

“If you have a small business, you did build that!”

Mitt has launched new businesses, saved Staples, Bright Horizons, and Sports Authority (to name a few) and made the Olympics the pride of our nation.

Mitt has achievement, excellence, and integrity.

Jana and I have three children Jana (Eliza, Charles, Sam). We have taught them that if we work hard and play by the rules, we can get ahead. We look with pride on one another’s successes instead of feeling resentment.

As more people work, they benefit all the people around them.

America is not a place; it is an idea. It is the only country founded on an idea: Our rights come from Nature and God – not from government.

Mitt Romney and I promise equal opportunity, not equal outcomes.

We won’t replace our country’s Founding principles but will reapply them.

We won’t blame others but will take responsibility.

We can turn this country around with real solutions. America can be delivered from our crises, but it will take leadership and the courage to tell you the people the truth. Romney is that kind of a leader. We are America’s “Comeback Team.”

    Loyalty and Enmity: Parallels between Islam and the Mafia

    Editor’s note: The following is Part Two of a three-part series examining the many parallels between Islam and the mafia following Bill Maher’s recent exclamation that Islam is “the only religion that acts like the mafia, that will f***ing kill you if you say the wrong thing, draw the wrong picture, or write the wrong book.” Click here for Part One.

    Death to Traitors (AKA “Apostates”)

    Once a Mafioso takes the oath of loyalty to the mafia—including the Omertà code of silence and secrecy—trying to leave the “family” is instantaneously seen as a betrayal and therefore punishable by death. Any family member, great or small, is given authority to kill the traitor, the “turncoat.”

    ‘LGBT’: The ‘T’ Is For Tyranny

    Tranny tyranny. Strike that. “LGBT” tyranny. Lesbian, gay, bisexual tyranny. That, generally speaking, is what’s on display in Houston right now. But trust me: Unlike Vegas, what happens in Houston will, most definitely, not stay in Houston – not if Democrats continue to have their way.

    Houstonians elected themselves, as mayor, an extremist lesbian Democrat (but I repeat myself). She quickly, and quite naturally, took to doing what extremist lesbian Democrats do. Annise Parker is her name, and spreading political Ebola is her game. That and trampling the U.S. Constitution. As you’ve likely heard, Parker’s office has illegally subpoenaed the sermons and privileged communications of a number of Christian pastors who vocally opposed the city’s ironically branded “Equal Rights Ordinance” (aka, the Houston Bathroom Bill).

    Muhammad and Islam’s Sex Slaves

    Once again, Islamic State Muslims are pointing to Islam in order to justify what the civilized world counts as atrocities.

    According to an October 13 report in the Telegraph,

    Islamic State jihadists have given detailed theological reasons justifying why they have taken thousands of women from the Iraqi Yazidi minority and sold them into sex slavery.

    A new article in the Islamic State English-language online magazine Dabiq not only admits the practice but justifies it according to the theological rulings of early Islam.

    “After capture, the Yazidi women and children were then divided according to the Sharia amongst the fighters of the Islamic State who participated,” the article says.

    Govornment And Churches Are Overwhelmed – What Do We Do With The Orphans On The Border?

    We are facing a great disaster on the southern border of our nation, and how we react is going to have serious repercussions. First of all, we have to take care of these people. Churches and government are doing their best to help, but are overwhelmed.

    What is the best solution for this problem? For those children who have them, it would seem the best thing to do, would be to reunite them whether they are here legally or not. The problem is, that would send a message that illegal kids are welcomed here if their parents are here,

    Well then, maybe we should send them back to whoever was taking care of them. But can we trust the authorities down there? Once many years ago I was trying to help two street children.

    Gov. Huckabee At Marriage March: ‘We Will Not Bow Our Knees To Nebuchadnezzar!’

    Is the American majority’s will to defend natural marriage against the rainbow of perverse counterfeits dead? Has America become a Judiciocracy ruled by a bevy of black-robed autocrats?

    Not if you ask the thousands who marched on Washington Thursday in this year’s “March for Marriage” rally. Not if you ask potential 2016 presidential candidates Mike Huckabee and Rick Santorum.

    They took on the counter-constitutional idea of judicial supremacy. They defended true marriage.
