Mr. Hope & Change Gets Into War #3

Yep, Obama was going to buy the world a Coke and live in perfect harmony. Unfortunately, he now has us involved in Northern Africa right next to Egypt and the Muslim Brotherhood who are allowing Iranian Special Forces to use their country to get into Libya. Sounds like a recipe for disaster. Especially when it appears he is doing the bidding of Islamofascists.

Question: Wasn't Obama the one who said we had no business getting involved in Iraq because they were no direct threat to our national security?

Yeah, Obama said Afghanistan was the war we should be in to capture Osama. To that end, Obama has hindered our forces fighting there, pissed off the country's leadership and sowed distrust about our true commitment. Oh, he hasn't even gotten close to Osama either.

What a Commander in Chief we have. He can't handle governing at home. He can't be competent in foreign policy. He can't deal with the other two wars we're in. Now he's getting involved in War #3.

At least Obama is plagiarizing better people now.

Police: Pro-Lifers Should Expect To Burn

I remember when LibProgs used to detest law officers, but now they applaud some of them as enlightened.

Molatov cocktail thrown at anti-abortion protester, police: You’ve got to expect that sort of thing
… instead of inspecting the bomb debris or calling evidence technicians to the scene, the officer remarked that police could never get prints or other evidence from the bomb’s remains and said he would call the city’s garbage service to dispose of all the debris.
The officer then said that the 40 Days prayer vigil participants should expect this kind of reaction if they’re protesting at the abortion business.

The police were right on this, eh? If you think the police reaction was awesome you should look at the outrage in the media...

One can just feel the love. The ethics. The honest police work and the keen, yet balanced reporting. Kind of like when Sarah Palin mimicked leftists and the DNC and put targets on a map. Right? Yeah, I thought so.

The Liberal Media Loves Liberal Hate So Much They Won't Show It

Hate. Thuggery. Lies. Tea Party you say? Conservatives?

Nope, it's our "loving", "nuanced" and "intellectual elite" on the left. Their bitterness and dislocation from reality grows each day and is amazing to watch, but then the media is part of this seismic shift in reality. As a whole they are the madding crowd.

The media shields their own. They have for years.

Great Gatsby Mansion Is Being Torn Down

'Gatsby' place joins doomed mansions list
Lands End, the 25-room Colonial Revival mansion that local lore says was F. Scott Fitzgerald's inspiration for Daisy Buchanan's home in "The Great Gatsby" faces demolition this month.

In the 1920s and '30s, Winston Churchill, the Marx Brothers andEthel Barrymore attended parties there. Fitzgerald was perched on the back deck, drinking in the view. Rooms featured marble, parquet and wide wood-planked floors, Palladian windows and hand-painted wallpaper.

Now, the front door is off its hinges, wood floors have been torn up for salvage, windows are missing and the two-story Doric columns are unsteady.

Sands Point Village in January approved plans to raze the house and divide the site into lots for five custom homes starting at $10 million each.

Lands End is the latest Gold Coast estate to fall. With each demolition, the North Shore loses more of its gilded past, when sea breezes and social events attracted the rich and famous. Historians say hundreds of the mansions have been lost in the past 50 years as owners faced increasing taxes and high maintenance costs.
"The cost to renovate these things is just so overwhelming that people aren't interested in it," said Clifford Fetner, president of Jaco Builders in Hauppauge and Lands End project construction manager. "The value of the property is the land."
