To counter a global BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions) day of action against Israeli products and companies on March 30, the CRC of MetroWest is joining with StandWithUs and the America-Israel Chambers of Commerce to designate Wednesday, March 30 as the day to actively Buy Israeli Goods.
We urge all community members to go to your local stores and request Israeli products. Whenever a boycott is called, we urge you to respond by purchasing the very Israeli goods that are being targeted and let store managers know they should keep them well-stocked on the shelves. Let us show that any calls for boycotts of even one or two stores will always be met with a much larger counter-movement to buy Israeli goods.To locate stores in your area that carry Israeli products, visit www.BuyIsraelGoods.org.
To help us measure the success of BIG, we suggest the following:
Shop with friends, take pictures and videos of yourself purchasing Israeli products.
Make entries for YouTube. Make them positive, fun and/or funny. Email your photos or links to your videos and pictures to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Washington Post babbled again today about Obama inheriting a huge deficit from Bush. Amazingly enough, a lot of people swallow this BULLSHIT.
So once more, a short civics lesson.
Budgets do not come from the White House. They come from Congress and the party that controlled Congress since January 2007 is the Democratic Party.
Furthermore, the Democrats controlled the budget process for FY 2008 and FY 2009 as well as FY 2010 and FY 2011.
In that first year, they had to contend with George Bush, which caused them to compromise on spending, when Bush somewhat belatedly got tough on spending increases.
For FY 2009 though, Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid bypassed George Bush entirely, passing continuing resolutions to keep government running until Barack Obama could take office. At that time, they passed a massive omnibus spending bill to complete the FY 2009 budgets..
And where was Barack Obama during this time? He was a member of that very Congress that passed all of these massive spending bills, and he signed the omnibus bill as President to complete FY 2009. Let's remember what the deficits looked like during that period: (below)
If the Democrats inherited any deficit, it was the FY 2007 deficit, the last of the Republican budgets. That deficit was the lowest in five years, and the fourth straight decline in deficit spending. After that, Democrats in Congress took control of spending, and that includes Barack Obama, who voted for the budgets.
If Obama inherited anything, he inherited it from himself.
In a nutshell, what Obama is saying is I inherited a deficit that I voted for
and then I voted to expand that deficit four-fold since January 20th.
There is no way this will be widely publicized, unless each of us sends it on!
This is your chance to make a difference.

This isn't my work but I'm reposting it because I believe its vital to understand how the Democrats are destroying our country.
