President Obama’s disapproval rating reached its highest level to date Sunday, according to Gallup’s daily presidential tracking poll.

Based on the latest data, 55 percent of Americans say they disapprove of the job President Obama is doing. Just 38 percent of Americans say they approve of Obama’s performance as president. (RELATED: Obama’s approval rating reaches lowest point of his presidency)

Gallup’s polls are based on telephone interviews with approximately 1,500 adults and carry a margin of error of ±3 percentage points.

    CAN MUSLIMS BE GOOD AMERICANS?
     
     
      Something to think about.       Interesting and disturbing!!!!              CAN MUSLIMS BE GOOD AMERICANS?             (This is certainly ‘food-for-thought’. What do you think?)   This is very interesting and we all need to read it from start to finish And send it on to everyone.  Maybe this is why our American Muslims are So quiet and not speaking out about any atrocities. Can a good Muslim be A good American? This question was forwarded to a friend who worked inSaudi Arabia for 20 years. The following is his reply:   Theologically – no. .. . . Because his allegiance is to Allah, The moon God of Arabia.  Religiously – no. . .. Because no other religion is accepted by His Allah Except Islam (Quran, 2:256)(Koran)  Scripturally – no. .. . Because his allegiance is to the five Pillars of Islam and the Quran. Geographically – no .. Because his allegiance is to Mecca, to which he Turns in prayer five times a day.  Socially – no. . .. Because his allegiance to Islam forbids him to make Friends with Christians or Jews .  Politically – no. . .. Because he must submit to the mullahs (spiritual Leaders), who teach annihilation of Israel and destruction of America, The great Satan. Domestically – no. … . Because he is instructed to marry
     four Women and
     Beat and scourge his wife when she disobeys him (Quran 4:34
     )
     
      Intellectually – no. . Because he cannot accept the
     American
     Constitution since it is based on Biblical principles and
     he believes the
     Bible to be corrupt.
     
      
    Philosophically – no. . . . Because Islam, Muhammad, and
     the Quran does
     Not allow freedom of religion and expression. Democracy and
     Islam cannot
     Co-exist. Every Muslim government is either dictatorial or
     autocratic.
     
      
    Spiritually – no. . .. Because when we declare ‘one
     nation under God,’
     The Christian’s God is loving and kind, while Allah is
     NEVER referred to
     As Heavenly father, nor is he ever called love in the
     Quran’s 99
     Excellent names.
     
     
    Therefore, after much study and deliberation…… Perhaps
     we should be
     Very suspicious of ALL MUSLIMS in this country.. – - – They
     obviously
     Cannot be both ‘good’ Muslims and good
     Americans.  Call it what you wish
     it’s still the truth. You had better believe it. The
     more who understand
     This, the better it will be for our country and our
     future.
     
      
    The religious war is bigger than we know or understand.
     ….
     Footnote: The Muslims have said they will destroy us from
     within.
     Is that happening now?  FREEDOM IS NOT
     FREE.

    A good one…Why Did Bernie Madoff Go To Prison?You will notice that there is no particular party placed at fault here as all share equally in this deal.   The only problem is that we keep sending the same ones back every election.   When will it stop??? The government doesn’t want people to profit from the same crap that the government does! Someone hit the nail on the head, here.  Why did Bernie Madoff go to prison? To make it simple, he talked people into investing with him. Trouble was, he didn’t invest their money. As time rolled on he simply took the money from the new investors to pay off the old investors. Finally there were too many old investors and not enough money from new investors coming in to keep the payments going. Next thing you know Madoff is one of the most hated men in America and he is off to jail. Some of you know this. But not enough of you. Madoff did to his investors what the government has been doing to us for over 70 years with Social Security. There is no meaningful difference between the two schemes, except that one was operated by a private individual who is now in jail, and the other is operated by politicians who enjoy perks, privileges and status in spite of their actions. Do you need a side-by-side comparison here? Well here’s a nifty little chart. BERNIE MADOFF SOCIAL SECURITY 1. Takes money from investors with the promise that the money will be invested and made available to them later. 1. Takes money from wage earners with the promise that the money will be invested in a “Trust Fund” (Lock Box) and made available later. 2. Instead of investing the money Madoff spends it on nice homes in the Hamptons and yachts. 2. Instead of depositing money in a Trust Fund the politicians transfer it to the General Revenue Fund and use it for general spending and vote buying. 3. When the time comes to pay the investors back Madoff simply uses some of the new funds from newer investors to pay back the older investors. 3. When benefits for older investors become due the politicians pay them with money taken from younger and newer wage earners to pay the older people. 4. When Madoff’s scheme is discovered all hell breaks loose. New investors won’t give him any more cash. 4. When Social Security runs out of money the politicians try to force the taxpayers to send them some more; or they cancel S/S to all those who paid into it. 5. Bernie Madoff is in jail. 5. Politicians remain in Washington… with fat medical and retirement benefits.

    Does Caroline May work for the New York Times? 38% isn’t the numbers I hear from other sources. These numbers are sugar coated. His disapproval rate is far lower than that. Why do you think he’s so desperate to get the hispanic vote. He’s trying to scrap up voted where ever he think he can. I wish the LEGAL hispanic voters would rise up and voice their discention about Obozos actions to distroy their chances of enjoying the American Dream. Sad, very sad.
