This would be hilarious if it weren’t so pathetic. The Democrats are in full meltdown now. The party is imploding before our eyes. Watch the video and you clearly see that the delegates opposed putting God and Jerusalem back into the platform. When the guy lied and said the ‘yays’ had it, the delegates booed and hissed. This is the modern Democrat party. Radical to their Marxist, Israel-hating core.
When Spendthrift-in-Chief Obama took office the debt was $9.986 Trillion. Give Obama another 4 years and by the next convention the debt will be topping $21 Trillion.
Sep 1, 2012 by jackohoft – Perfect. Republicans faced Hurricane Isaac during their national convention in Tampa. Democrats face a Hurricane of Debt during their convention. The national debt is expected to top $16 trillion dollars this week. Obama added $6 trilllion to the nation’s debt. When he took office it was $9.986 trillion.
A picture tells a thousand horror stories. Try out the interactive aspects of the painting.
Aug 29, 2012 by McNaughtonArt – Obamanation (One Painting That Says It All) – I chose to use an undisclosed studio so I could paint privately, without interruption, to focus on the task of embedding in a single painting all the subtle, mindless, radical and dangerous atrocities of the Obama administration.
I am just one person, a citizen of this country using my first amendment rights to speak out through my art. This is my declaration that we have never had a president do more to harm our country than Barack Obama.
To those who scoff or wish to trivialize this painting, I challenge you… I DARE YOU… study the links of the various symbols and metaphors that you see. There are over 60 in the painting. No person can analyze this image and learn about these facts and still, in good conscience, vote for Obama in 2012.
I do not hate Obama, but I hate the fact that I had to paint this picture. Has the painting gone too far? I knew when I did this that most Obama supporters would reject what I have done. But as a Conservative, I’m fed up with the corruption in Washington. And I’m sick of the political correctness that has derailed our country!
My art is an expression of the times in which I live and people will know how Jon McNaughton felt about being alive in America in 2012.
Take the Challenge! If you still choose Obama, congratulations…you’re a part of the Obamanation.

And 100% of Barack Obama is fake.
President Obama’s Twitter account has 18.8 million followers — but more than half of them really don’t exist, according to reports.
A new Web tool has determined that 70% of Obama’s crowd includes “fake followers,” The New York Times reports in a story about how Twitter followers can be purchased.
“The practice has become so widespread that StatusPeople, a social media management company in London, released a Web tool last month called the Fake Follower Check that it says can ascertain how many fake followers you and your friends have,” the Times reports.
“Fake accounts tend to follow a lot of people but have few followers,” said Rob Waller, a founder of StatusPeople. “We then combine that with a few other metrics to confirm the account is fake.”
This is outrageous, enraging, and oh so typical.
Nothing points to foul play more than Obama’s desperate measures to hide his bizarre, almost certainly criminal past than his unending attempts to cover it.
“Obama revoked a similar George W. Bush order in one of his first official acts as president. In 2001 Bush penned an executive order severely limiting public access to his presidential records. Shortly after swearing in, Obama killed it as part of his much-ballyhooed commitment to government transparency.”
According to Judicial Watch, Rep. Edolphous Towns (D-NY) has introduced the Presidential Records Act Amendments of 2011. That bill would do with Obama’s presidential records what Obama has already done to his personal and collegiate records: Seal them up.
In an obvious effort to protect President Barack Obama, a group of congressional Democrats has introduced legislation to create an official process that will allow the commander-in-chief to keep presidential records secret after he leaves office.
Ironically, Obama revoked a similar George W. Bush order in one of his first official acts as president. In 2001 Bush penned an executive order severely limiting public access to his presidential records. Shortly after swearing in, Obama killed it as part of his much-ballyhooed commitment to government transparency. At the time, the new president claimed that he was giving the American people greater access to “historic documents.”
If the Democrats’ proposed measure (Presidential Records Act Amendments of 2011) becomes law, former presidents will be allowed to assert a new “constitutionally based privilege” against disclosing records of their liking. Here is how it would work; the Archivist of the United States would be required to notify the former president, as well as the incumbent, of intentions to make records public. Anything that either the former or current president claims should be kept private won’t be released.
The veteran Brooklyn congressman (Edolphus Towns) who recently introduced the law in the U.S. House has yet to explain why it’s necessary.
Judicial Watch reports:
The veteran Brooklyn congressman (Edolphus Towns) who recently introduced the law in the U.S. House has yet to explain why it’s necessary. What’s certain is that Obama has failed miserably to keep his promise of running the most transparent administration in history.
Dems must not be all that terribly confident about his prospects in the 2012 election if they’re already trying to help him cover his tracks.
Pretty amazing stuff.
Israel Hayom – Israel is upgrading its Arrow II ballistic missile shield in a U.S.-backed “race” against Iran, Syria and other regional enemies, a senior Israeli defense official said on Sunday.
The new “block-4″ generation of guided interceptor rockets, radars and technologies for synchronizing Arrow with U.S. systems was being installed in deployed Israeli batteries, a process that would take several weeks, the official said.
“The accuracy and the reach will be greater,” the official said of Arrow, which has been operational since 2000 and is designed to blow up incoming missiles at altitudes high enough for non-conventional warheads to disintegrate safely.
“It is part of the technological race in the region,” added the official, who declined to be named given the sensitivity of the issue.
Long jittery about Iran’s disputed nuclear program, Israel has more recently worried the Syrian insurgency could loosen Damascus’s hold on its chemical weapons and Scud missiles.
Israel has threatened to attack preemptively in both countries, a prospect that could trigger wider war and clash with Washington’s efforts to resolve the crises diplomatically.
The Pentagon and U.S. firm Boeing are partners in Arrow, an investment that the Obama administration hopes will help stay the Israelis’ hand.
Jul 16, 2012 by RussiaToday – A Russian man has barely managed to escape death in a massive traffic accident involving five vehicles at a gas station. What’s also a miracle is that there were no explosions, and only one person was slightly injured.
I seriously doubt that Obama’s jackbooted IRS thugs and the rest of his Totalitarian Liberal State would take kindly to doctors or anyone else ‘going Galt’ on them.
American Thinker – How many physicians will pack it in because smaller payments from Medicare and Medicaid won’t allow them to cover their expenses?
No one knows, but it’s a good bet that you and I are going to have long waits to see a doctor for anything except a dire emergency.
Eighty-three percent of American physicians have considered leaving their practices over President Barack Obama’s health care reform law, according to a survey released by the Doctor Patient Medical Association.
The DPMA, a non-partisan association of doctors and patients, surveyed a random selection of 699 doctors nationwide. The survey found that the majority have thought about bailing out of their careers over the legislation, which was upheld last month by the Supreme Court.
Even if doctors do not quit their jobs over the ruling, America will face a shortage of at least 90,000 doctors by 2020. The new health care law increases demand for physicians by expanding insurance coverage. This change will exacerbate the current shortage as more Americans live past 65.
By 2025 the shortage will balloon to over 130,000, Len Marquez, the director of government relations at the American Association of Medical Colleges, told The Daily Caller.
“One of our primary concerns is that you’ve got an aging physician workforce and you have these new beneficiaries – these newly insured people – coming through the system,” he said. “There will be strains and there will be physician shortages.”
The DPMA found that many doctors do not believe the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act will lead to better access to medical care for the majority of Americans, co-founder of the DPMA Kathryn Serkes told TheDC.
“Doctors clearly understand what Washington does not – that a piece of paper that says you are ‘covered’ by insurance or ‘enrolled’ in Medicare or Medicaid does not translate to actual medical care when doctors can’t afford to see patients at the lowball payments, and patients have to jump through government and insurance company bureaucratic hoops,” she said.
People are going to be in for a rude surprise when Obamacare is fully implemented in 2014.
Nothing is too shameless or absurd for the United Nations.
‘Syria’s candidacy would be virtually assured of victory,’ according to UN watchdog group.
Times of Israel – Even as reports of massacres and widespread torture in Syria continue to surface daily, the country is a serious contender for a seat on the United Nations Human Rights Council, according to a UN watchdog group.
From a US-sponsored and EU-backed draft resolution debated Wednesday in Geneva, it emerged that Syria is vying for a seat on the council starting 2014, UN Watch reported. Although Damascus’s brutal crackdown on protesters — which has already cost the lives of at least 10,000 people — has been widely condemned by the international community, including Arab and Muslim nations, it is not unlikely that Syria would win its bid.
“As part of the UN’s 53-nation Asian group, Syria’s candidacy would be virtually assured of victory due to the prevalent system of fixed slates, whereby regional groups orchestrate uncontested elections, naming only as many candidates as allotted seats,” the pro-Israel watchdog group wrote on its website.
Elections to the UNHRC, which includes 47 nations, take place in 2013 at the United Nations General Assembly.
Fearing that Syria could indeed win a spot on the UNHRC, the US and Europe have taken an unusual step by demanding the council declare Syria ineligible for a seat. Condemning President Bashar Assad’s regime for the “indiscriminate targeting of civilians” and other crimes and human rights violations, their draft resolution “stresses that the current Syrian’s government’s announced candidacy for the Human Rights Council in 2014 fails to meet the standards for Council membership.”
But the attempt to keep Syria from running is being met with heavy opposition by countries such as China, Cuba and Egypt, according to UN Watch. Russia and India argued that no action should be taken before Syria has formally submitted its candidacy, the group reported, adding that Damascus was unanimously elected last year to two human rights committees of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).
While even many Arab states have spoken out against the violence in Syria, with the Arab League suspending Assad membership in November, some experts say that Damascus could still be voted into the UNHRC, because of backroom deals and the fear that some day Syria could seek revenge and vote against other countries’ applications.

I think this is Romney’s biggest lead yet.
Sure, it’s very early and Republicans will likely shoot themselves in the foot plenty of times before now and November, but you can enter the weekend with a smile.
Rasmussen – The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Friday shows Mitt Romney attracting 48% of the vote, while President Obama earns 43%. Six percent (6%) prefer some other candidate, and another three percent (3%) are undecided.
The president picks up support from just 35% of white voters overall. That’s eight points below the 43% of the white vote he won in 2008. Among white Democrats, 17% currently plan to vote for Romney.
Just 33% now believe the president is doing a good or excellent job when it comes to the economy. That’s down from 41% at the beginning of May.
A must watch. Gowdy slams Holder and his corrupt Justice Department for the rest of us. He starts off slow and builds like a hurricain until he hits category 5 ferocity.
The next Spanish Civil War? Coming soon to a city near you.
(The Blaze/AP) — In a scene that looks more like Gaza than Spain, striking coal miners armed with homemade rockets and slingshots clashed with police Friday, leaving seven people injured– two of them seriously– the Interior Ministry said.
The strike is the latest and the most violent of many in Spain in reaction to harsh austerity measures aimed at digging the debt-burdened country out of its financial crisis.
The miners are concerned that government cuts — including a reduction in mining subsidies from €300 million to €110 million ($375 million-$137 million) a year — will devastate their industry.
Spain is applying across-the-board cutbacks as part of an economic overhaul aimed at slashing its swollen deficit, but that plan comes at a time when the country’s unemployment rate is nearly 25 percent.
When police tried to remove roadblocks of flaming tires set up as part of the protest, they were reportedly met with a “barrage of missiles fired by the miners, the regional office of the Interior Ministry said in a statement.
Four police officers and three journalists were injured as a result, and police responded with rubber bullets and tear gas. (more >>>)
Obama hyped yesterday’s Ohio speech as a major address. It was virtually the same one he gave in April. Democrats really do think you’re stupid.
What a smackdown. At point 2:20 Cornyn says, “Let me talk about your record,” and then launches into a devastating review of Holder’s blatant disregard for justice—his lies, his games, and his obstruction. It’s a very long and shameful list. By the time Cornyn finishes you’ll be furious and wonder how the hell this Leftist puke could still be in office. What a disgrace.

The Obama Administration will go down in history as the worst, most incompetent and treasonous administration in history.
Look at how ridiculous Obama’s Labor department is.
Gohmert really lets Holder have it. “Why in the world would your department be more considerate of the terrorists than the congress that can defund your department?!”
Holder replies that he sees the political nature of his department as much more important than justice. Not in those words, but that is what he certainly means. What a scumbag. Holder can never look these guys in the eyes because he knows he is so full of crap that it is coming out of his own.
The Obama Administration is a 5th column. How is it possible that this America-hating traitor could still be in office?
Jun 7, 2012 by GohmertTX01 – Rep. Louie Gohmert (TX-01) questioned U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder in the House Judiciary Hearing on Oversight of the United States Department of Justice. He demanded answers and asked Holder who authorized the fast and furious gunrunning scandal.
Israel has suddenly found Herself an energy Goliath. This discovery is in addition to those of Leviathan, Tamar, Myra and Sarah, Dolphin, and the recent finds at Gabriella and Yitzhak. It is the third largest offshore discovery to date.
This discovery is comprised of five deep-water Pelagic licenses – Aditya, Ishai, Lela, Yahav, and Yoad – covering two million dunam (500,000 acres) 170 west of Haifa.
In addition to the oil and gas off of Israel’s coast, south of Jerusalem is the 250 billion barrels of oil in Israel’s Shefla basin, comparable to Saudi Arabia’s entire reserves of 260 billion barrels of oil. (See links at bottom for more about Shefla and other finds.)
“This quantity guarantees Israel’s energy future for decades, and makes it possible to export Israeli gas, and boost the state’s revenues without worrying about gas reserves for domestic consumption.”
Globes – Israel Opportunity Energy Resources LP (TASE: ISOP.L) today reported that the Pelagic licenses have unrisked gross contingent resources of 6.7 trillion cubic feet (TCF) of gas and 1.4 billion barrels of oil, according to Ryder Scott Company LP. The estimated cost of an exploratory well is $100 million.
For the sake of comparison, Tamar has 9 TCF and Leviathan has 17 TCF.
Ryder Scott estimates the geologic probability of success at 28.5% at the Yoad prospect, ranging down to 6.7% in the Aphrodite prospect (which potentially has 3.6 TCF of natural gas). The probability of success of recovering oil ranges from 5.3% to 12.3%.
Israel Opportunity chairman Ronny Halman says that the report’s estimates are better than the estimates that the company had when it decided to acquire the Pelagic licenses. “The quantity of gas discovered in the licenses, and the high probabilities, make it the third largest offshore discovery to date. This quantity guarantees Israel’s energy future for decades, and makes it possible to export Israeli gas, and boost the state’s revenues without worrying about gas reserves for domestic consumption.”
There are five deep-water Pelagic licenses – Aditya, Ishai, Lela, Yahav, and Yoad – covering two million dunam (500,000 acres) 170 west of Haifa, between Leviathan’s Ratio Yam and Block 12, which includes the Aphrodite structure, in Cypriot waters. Israel Opportunity owns 10% of the licenses, Benny Steinmetz and Teddy Sagui each own 42.5%, and Norway’s AGR Group Inc. owns 5%.
“We are preparing for the first well,” Israel Opportunity CEO Eyal Shuker said. “For the logistics, we’ve rented port storage and operations space, we’ve begun ordering drilling equipment, including drill heads and casings, and we’ve secured most of the agreements with Israeli and foreign services and equipment providers for the well. The operator, AGR, has already brought a skilled team to Israel to manage the operation, and we expect that the Homer Ferrington rig will soon arrive at the Ishai licenses, after it successfully completes its missions at the Myra and Sarah licenses.
Israel Opportunity’s share price rose 9.9% in morning trading to NIS 0.29, giving a market cap of NIS 220 million.

That’ll teach her to work and study hard in Obama’s America.
‘…Since her parents divorced and left her and her two siblings, she has been the sole breadwinner and works two jobs to keep the family afloat. Ms Tran said she works a full time job, a part-time job, and takes advancement and dual credit college level courses at Willis High School. ‘[I take] dual credit U.S. history, dual credit English literacy, college algebra, Spanish language AP,’ she says of her impressive academic workload.’
UK Daily Mail – An eleventh grader in Texas was thrown in jail – just for missing school.
However, honour student Diane Tran, 17, is no lazy truant. In fact, she’s quite the opposite.
Since her parents divorced and left her and her two siblings, she has been the sole breadwinner and works two jobs to keep the family afloat.
Ms Tran said she works a full time job, a part-time job, and takes advancement and dual credit college level courses at Willis High School.
‘[I take] dual credit U.S. history, dual credit English literacy, college algebra, Spanish language AP,’ she says of her impressive academic workload.
However, the high-achiever cannot devote as much time as she would like to her schooling as she often misses an entire day, reports KHOU.
Ms Tran says that her parents divorced ‘out of the blue,’ leaving her and her two siblings to fend for themselves.
‘I always thought our family was happy,’ she said.
Now, it’s up to Ms Tran to support her siblings, who include an older brother at Texas A&M University and a younger sister who lives with relatives.
Local authorities are using Ms Tran’s case to crackdown on truancy.
Judge Lanny Moriarty ordered the exhausted student to pay a $100 fine and spend 24 hours in jail as a lesson.
‘If you let one [truant student] run loose, what are you gonna’ do with the rest of ‘em? Let them go too?’ asked Judge Moriarty.
He had warned her last month to stop missing her classes.
Ms Tran’s employer at the Waverly Manor wedding venue, where Tran works during the weekend, suggested that the authorities should ‘help [the family], don’t harm them’.
Ms Tran also works full-time at a dry cleaners. Her co-worker and classmate Devin Hill told the network how hard her friend works.
‘She goes from job to job, from school, she stays up ’til 7 o’clock in the morning to study’ she said.
On the homepage of the school’s website, there is a warning to students to be vigilant about their attendance.
‘Should a student have multiple unexcused absences and a pattern of failing to attend school regularly, the law is clear that the matter becomes the jurisdiction of the court system,’ it states.
However, locals are arguing that Ms Tran’s case is unique and should be treated with more leniency.
Ms Tran, in the meantime, is worried this could mar her future ambitions – she one day hopes to become a doctor.
Israeli mountaineer Nadav Ben Yehuda was 300 meters from Mount Everest’s summit when he turned back in order to save the life of an injured Turkish climber.
Nadav Ben Yehuda, 24, had trained for two years to conquer Everest and would have become the youngest Israeli to reach the summit.
He said his decision to forgo his dream of reaching the world’s highest peak was self-evident when he saw 46-year-old Aydin Irmak’s body sprawled on the mountainside.
On his way up he had already passed two dead bodies.
Lifting Irmak over his shoulders, he carried Irmak for about eight hours back down to Camp IV. He climbed down without gloves or oxygen, as his mask had already broken.
Update: Israeli mountain climber Nadav Ben Yehuda, who saved the life of a Turkish climber during an excursion on Mount Everest, will receive the Presidential Medal of Honor at an official ceremony in Jerusalem next month.
Jerusalem Post – Nadav Ben-Yehuda was moving fast on the bitterly cold night of May 19, skillfully maneuvering through the final 1,000 meters from Mount Everest’s Camp IV to its summit – the highest in the world at an altitude of 8,848 meters.
He had trained for two years prior, climbing all over the world since he finished his army service, and he chose to do the final stretch of Everest – the summit climb – a day after the rest of his group to avoid pedestrian traffic jams, despite a less than desirable weather forecast and a dangerous extra day spent in Camp IV without a sleeping bag.
“When we started the climb I was supposed to be fully exhausted but I climbed really fast,” Ben-Yehuda, 24, told The Jerusalem Post, over the phone from Kathmandu, Nepal, on Tuesday afternoon.
He continued trudging, with his Sherpa guide trailing behind him, until he suddenly came to a stop some 250 m. away from the summit.
Shocked, he saw the body of his friend from the base camp, Aydin Irmak, 46, sprawled lifelessly on the icy ridges.
“When we saw my friend Aydin there was no question,” Ben-Yehuda said, noting that on his way to Irmak he had already passed two dead bodies clipped to the climbing rope.
Knowing that they were going to die, these men had purposely fastened their bodies to the ropes affixed to the snow covered ridges, freezing into a permanent slumber. In the end, four people died on that icy Everest night – but Ben-Yehuda and Irmak were not going to be among the departed.
“Spring 2012 will be remembered as the deadliest season of Everest ever,” Ben-Yehuda said.
Grayson Schaffer, an editor at Outside Magazine who is stationed at base camp, wrote on his magazine’s website that the mood at the camp since the weekend “has been overridingly gloomy since the news of the mishaps first began trickling down the mountain,” when four additional climbers died on Saturday.
Had he chosen to continue climbing, Ben-Yehuda would have been the youngest Israeli ever to make it to Everest’s summit.
“It really changed my plans,” he said.
Lifting Irmak over his shoulders, Ben-Yehuda carried his Turkish-New Yorker friend alongside his Sherpa guide for about eight hours back down to Camp IV – without gloves, as they made the rescue process too challenging – and without oxygen, as his mask had already broken.
“You don’t feel it straight away,” he said of climbing without oxygen, a sentiment that quickly changed. “You are about to faint all the time.”
During the breathless march downward, the group passed by a Malaysian climber, also prostrate and semi-conscious. Unable to carry a second person, Ben-Yehuda said he luckily soon crossed paths with a British climbing team, who were able to bring the Malaysian man oxygen and revitalize him.
The negative 40-degree Celsius temperatures left both men with severe burns all over their faces, and Ben-Yehuda’s ungloved hand is blackened to a crisp, some of which may need to be amputated, he explained. But eventually, the men made it back to Camp IV, where a helicopter came to their rescue – allowing both of them to live.
To Ben-Yehuda, the choice to forgo his summit climb and save his new friend was simple, a no-brainer.
“Aydin was climbing the day before me – I found him on the way down. I decided not to go up,” he told the Post. “This was the idea and it worked, because we just ate dinner together.”
Ben-Yehuda was speaking on the phone from a dinner hosted by the Israeli ambassador to Nepal, Hanan Goder-Goldberger, at a new Kathmandu blind restaurant called Dining in the Dark, which is a partnership between the Israeli embassy and the Nepal Association of the Blind.
Calling Ben-Yehuda a “hero,” Goder-Goldberger said he was proud that despite all the physical training that the young man had performed to make it to the summit, he made the noble decision and turned around, to save a life.
Ben-Yehuda handed over the phone to Irmak, also at the dinner, who described to the Post his full-body exhaustion and the pain he was feeling waiting for his fingers to heal. Irmak, too, had lost his gloves in the 200-km. per hour winds. Continue reading
It is astounding, but not surprising, how corrupt voting has become in America. No wonder Barack Obama says he’s not worried about the upcoming election.
Florida, elections officials fear as many as 180,000 non-citizens may be registered to vote. In Colorado, during the 2010 midterm elections, 5,000 non-citizens may have voted.
Breitbart – James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas exposed how easy it was for someone to walk in to a polling place and get Attorney General Eric Holder’s ballot, and now it has released another video that shows how easily non-citizens–and even dead people–can vote in North Carolina, a crucial 2012 swing state.
In the video, William Romero, an apparent non-citizen, is shown to be registered to vote in North Carolina. According to jury refusal records obtained by Project Veritas, Romero was recused for being a non-citizen. Yet when a researcher from Project Veritas went into the polling station, he found that not only was Romero still on the voting rolls but the poll workers were more also more than willing to give him Romero’s ballot.
The video finds that another alleged non-citizen in Durham County, North Carolina, was on the voter rolls–and apparently voted in 2008 and 2010–even though he had been categorized as “code 7” in jury recusal forms, which means he had been excused as a non-citizen.
In another crucial swing state, Florida, elections officials fear as many as 180,000 non-citizens may be registered to vote. In Colorado, during the 2010 midterm elections, 5,000 non-citizens may have voted.
Project Veritas’s video also shows how easy it is for a person to obtain the ballot of a dead person, and features a potential election judge who says he will “mostly support the Constitution of the state of North Carolina” because he now thinks it encourages bigotry after the passage of Amendment One that banned gay marriage.
He jokes that “we need somebody to run over [Supreme Court Justice Antonin] Scalia,” and later jokes “you should get him and [Justice Clarence] Thomas at the same time.”
Later in the video, on the campus of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, a student who tells a professor that he illegally voted in Ohio and North Carolina is told by the professor to hope “no one will figure that out,” as the professor laughs. Another person on the campus compares voting fraud to speeding.
These are yet more examples of how much the country would be well-served by voter-ID laws.

“When my husband left on his deployment, our 6-year-old son could not walk on his own. He has cerebral palsy. Doctors originally said that he would never walk or do much of anything. While daddy was away, he learned to walk. For his homecoming, we set it up for Michael to walk to his daddy for the first time ever! We kept the fact that he could walk a secret the whole time his dad was gone!” (http://WelcomeHomeBlog.com)

Need a picker-upper? Watch this eye-misting video of one man’s indomitable will.
Arthur Boorman was a disabled veteran of the Gulf War. He was told by his doctors that he would never be able to walk unassisted ever again. For some 15 years he believed them. He grew fat. He grew hopeless. And then he said, screw this. Someone believed in him, and he began to believe in himself.
Watch the video and see his transformation. A lot can happen in a year.
Dallapage – Arthur Boorman was a disabled veteran of the Gulf War for 15 years, and was told by his doctors that he would never be able to walk on his own, ever again.
He stumbled upon an article about Diamond Dallas Page doing Yoga and decided to give it a try — he couldn’t do traditional, higher impact exercise, so he tried DDP YOGA and sent an email to Dallas telling him his story.
Dallas was so moved by his story, he began emailing and speaking on the phone with Arthur throughout his journey – he encouraged Arthur to keep going and to believe that anything was possible. Even though doctors told him walking would never happen, Arthur was persistent. He fell many times, but kept going.
Arthur was getting stronger rapidly, and he was losing weight at an incredible rate! Because of DDP’s specialized workout, he gained tremendous balance and flexibility — which gave him hope that maybe someday, he’d be able to walk again.
His story is proof, that we cannot place limits on what we are capable of doing, because we often do not know our own potential. Niether Arthur, nor Dallas knew what he would go on to accomplish, but this video speaks for itself. In less than a year, Arthur completely transformed his life. If only he had known what he was capable of, 15 years earlier.
Do not waste any time thinking you are stuck – you can take control over your life, and change it faster than you might think.
Hopefully this story can inspire you to follow your dreams – whatever they may be. Anything is Possible!
