Don’t let a disability stop you from achieving your dreams.

If THIS IS DIFFICULT TO BELIEVE, THEN PROVE TO YOURSELF IT’S WRONG - Google it!

Feel free to verify the “executive orders” at will…..and these are just the major ones. I’m sure you’ve all heard the tale of the “Frog in the Pot”…

Watch Obama’s actions, not his words! By his actions he will show you where America is headed.

Obama has issued executive orders that seek to “harmonize” U.S. Economic regulations with the rest of the world. These executive orders are yet another incremental step that is pushing us closer to a North American Union and a one world economic system.

Obama used the stage at the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King’s I have a dream speech to announce two new executive orders infringing on your second amendment rights.. The first bans the importation of antique military firearms for sale to sportsman and collectors.. He intentionally mislabels them military grade weapons to deceive the sheeple, but make no mistake … the order was written specifically to ban the importation of surplus M1 carbines, M1 Garands, 1903 Springfields and other antiques coveted by collectors and sport shooters. This order is the death knell for the civilian marksmanship program. Congress had previously passed the sportsman protection act in 1986 which among other things guaranteed that the importation of the historic relics for collectors and the CMP would not be impeded by unreasonable regulations..

Unfortunately, most Americans have absolutely no idea what is happening.

The American people need to understand that Barack Obama is constantly looking for ways to integrate the United States more deeply with the rest of the world.The globalization of the world economy has accelerated under Obama, and this latest executive order represents a fundamental change in U.S. economic policy. Now federal regulators will be required to “harmonize” their work with the international community.

Feel free … Google it!!!

So you think America is still the home of the FREE?

For the SHOCK of your life, take 1 minute to comprehend what you read below. During our lifetimes, all Presidents have issued Executive Orders. For various reasons, some have issued more than others. These things will directly affect us all, in years to come.

Question is: Do YOU care enough to send this, ‘shocking info,’ to people you love and others?

NUMBER OF EXECUTIVE ORDERS ISSUED by U.S. Presidents in the last 100 years:

Teddy Roosevelt - 3
All Others until FDR - 0
FDR - 11 in 16 years
Truman - 5 in 7 years
Ike - 2 in 8 years
Kennedy - 4 in 3 years
LBJ - 4 in 5 years
Nixon - 1 in 6 years
Ford - 3 in 2 years
Carter - 3 in 4 years
Reagan - 5 in 8 years
Bush - 3 in 4 years
Clinton - 15 in 8 years
George W. Bush - 62 in 8 years
Obama - 923 in 3 1/2 years! More than 1000+ and counting Executive Orders in 6 years…

Read some of them below – unbelievable!

Next step - dictatorship.. (Looks like we are there already!)

If you don’t get the implications, you’re not paying attention. How come all the other presidents in the past 100 years have not felt it necessary to INCREASE GOVERNMENT’S POWER OVER THE PEOPLE with more than 1,000 Executive Orders? This is really very scary. And most Americans have absolutely no idea what is happening.

YES, THERE IS A REASON THAT THIS PRESIDENT IS DETERMINED TO TAKE CONTROL AWAY FROM THE HOUSE AND THE SENATE. Even some Democrats in the House have turned on him, plus a very small number of Democrat Senators have questioned him. Rightfully so.

WHAT IS OBAMA REALLY TRYING TO ACCOMPLISH????

Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate.

GWN and it’s welcoming skies.

Or so I am told …

the biggest commitment you must keep is your commitment to yourself.

Betrayal of yourself in order not to betray another is betrayal nonetheless.

It is the highest betrayal.

This is not a call for willy-nilly abandonment of a job or a person or a situation. But it is your notice from the Universe that it is all right for you to take care of yourself also.

Or so I am told …

perfection is not required of you in Life — only perfect effort.

Not to even try because you don’t think you can would be terribly sad.

You’ll be amazed at what you can do if you simply step into it.  Life awaits you on the other side of Risk.

What can you lose? Face? Dignity?

Who cares about those when greatness is possible? Who cares about those when fairy tales are at hand?
