Hey, Prez Obama, You're Right About Hope And Change

In Sweden. Didn't you say something about us being like Sweden? Or was that Spain? Uganda? China? Detroit?

Sweden Lifts New Nuclear Reactor Ban

Bummer that Spain did admit their "green economy" was a hoax and that was after we had paid them huge amounts of money to go green. Maybe you can jump the gun and say that Sweden is a hoax. It doesn't exist, has no nuclear power and thus is not really part of the discussion. Get Rahmbo and Prof Ax on it, but clear it with Mother Pelosi first.

SHOCK: Petty Dem Politicos Blame Bush For Gulf Spill

To hear Madam Pelosi and crew, it was those horrid Republicans that pushed oil companies far out into the Gulf to drill. Those capitalist running dog pigs wanted Big Oil to have to expend huge amounts of capital instead of letting them drill on land at less expense and less danger of problems.

Now Demos don't want the Repubs to see what they've wrought when actually they really really want them to see. See?

Oil spill visits get partisan

Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.) wanted to fly 10 lawmakers down to the Gulf of Mexico to see the damage caused by BP’s gigantic oil spill first hand.

House Democrats said no.

.. but,

“Every Member should see the result of eight years of failed Bush-Cheney energy policies that have done nothing to secure our energy future,” said Pelosi spokesman Drew Hammill.

This is getting really tiresome. It is what you'd expect when you have such people as Pelosi, Reid, Waxman, et al in charge who then hire little toadies like Drew Hammill. When childish know-it-alls are in charge you have to expect childish behavior Maybe we should have hall monitors in Congress. It's a good idea until you ask which responsible person they would be sent to for reprimand and punishment. Obama? Yeah, him and Rahm Emanuel.

Government Health Care Can Kill You

VA hospital may have infected 1,800 veterans with HIV

War & Restrepo

A book and a film.

I got this information from Blackfive and I strongly suggest you go and read what Blackfive writes. Few times do I look forward to current books written about the military and even fewer times do I look forward to current films about the military because they are many things, but not really about the military and what soldiers really stand for. Both the book War and the film Restrepo are ones that I will search out.

I am leaving in a minute to first find the book.

Pete Stark: Arrogant Or Incompetent?

Both. His constituents get what they vote. They remind me of the fool in our town who would get drunk and loudly exclaim, "Stop hitting me so hardly."

I think he actually believes himself a sarcastic wit. He's an old fool.

Anchor Babies As A Weapon

Denying citizenship for illegal immigrants' children is a bad idea

Go back, however, and read the transcripts of the 1866 debate in the Senate and you find that both those for and against the amendment readily acknowledged its application to illegal immigrants. A Pennsylvania senator, for example, objected to granting citizenship to the children of aliens who regularly commit "trespass" within the United States. The concern then was with babies of gypsy or Chinese parents.

But Congress and the ratifying states opted instead to uphold a founding principle of the republic that was fundamental to the peaceful building of a multiethnic immigrant nation, however imperfectly. In a world plagued by bloody ethnic conflicts, that concern remains valid.

The WaPo writer goes on to say that it is not a immigration strategy for women to purposely have their babies in the US. Not true. Foreigners have used anchor babies as well as marriage and other techniques to gain entrance to the US and illegal alien entrance and anchor babies are proliferating. Groups such as La Raza and MECHa openly talk of it to build their population for power to retake the southwestern portion of the US. This population is being used as a weapon.

It is time to deny them automatic citizenship and secure our borders.

The Campaigner Sets His Sights On Reality?

Now that the Obama lecture series is over at the G-20 and it appears too wet for quality golf we get this.

Obama Calling "Bluff" Of Those Complaining About "Deficits And Debt"

People should learn that lesson about me because next year when I start presenting some very difficult choices to the country, I hope some of these folks who are hollering about deficits and debt step-up because I'm calling their bluff. We'll see how much of that, how much of the political arguments that they're making right now are real and how much of it was just politics."

Really, a politician that obviously has one great quality, politics, is warning us about playing politics. His biggest warning is that he is calling their bluff as he stares at a political disbanding of his gang?

Plug the damn hole in our economy and we might start believing you.

World Cup Exclusive: 5% Of America Watch

World Cup Loss to Ghana Is Most Watched U.S. Men's Soccer Match in History

This contest numbered almost as many people that watched the women's softball championship.World Cup viewership almost will reach the numbers of those that watch NASCAR to view just how well pit crews perform.

Possibly the World Cup will, in the next few years, in America surpass the number of women who view their daughters performing ballet to Elmer Fudd humming Dvořák' humming Brahms, with a hangover from canopies and whiskey featuring miniature hot dogs.

I am out on a limb here, but I think Americans will watch the World Cup in greater numbers than those that breathlessly wait for a James Wolcott article on shrimp dogs and fat ugly cats.

Are there that many people that actually read Wolcott? No.

Drudge, rock on, but who actually cares about fotball? 0-0 is so exciting. Tying is so like kissing your sister. Nuance be damned.

Hilarious - Cars And Freedom

via American Power

Dodd (D-Ireland) And Barney (D-Taxachusetts) Help Obama Strangle Business And Economy Even More

Another blockbuster bill that no one has read is ready for a seemingly illiterate congress to vote on. Those on the left are already glowing with pride over their new 2,000 pound behemoth child.

House, Senate leaders finalize details of sweeping financial overhaul

No one knows what it will do, but it will give the government more power to interfere and seize banks and other business. A real step forward for freedom, a healthy economy and fat bureaucrats.

Ohio KKK Against Israel

Large majorities on Hill back Israel's flotilla raid

Even as Israel shows signs of loosening its blockade of Gaze, large majorities in the House and Senate have signed off on letters supporting the blockade and defending Israel's enforcement of it against a Turkish vessel.

Harry Reid and Mitch McConnell, along with 83 other senators, have signed the Senate version of the letter, which is backed by AIPAC; 298 members of the House have signed on.

All but three congressmen from Ohio signed the letter of support except 3, Kaptur, Kilroy, Kucinich. As for our senators, Voinovich and even the most liberal Senator Sherrod Brown signed.
Who knew Hamas was a constituency, especially of Mary Jo Kilroy. They must be hiding in Plain City.

Border Patrol Equals KKK To Leftist

But Elena Herrada does concede that some police in the community are okay.

Elena Herrada is a community activist in southwest Detroit and with the Social Justice Program at Marygrove College. She sees Arizonia's law as unjust and unworkable.

"A pretty extreme law that basically comes down to almost ethnic cleansing for the state of Arizona," she said. "How are they going to do that especially given the history of Arizona? Arizona belonged to Mexico. So, there's people that have been there long before the border."

Figures, she worked for the SEIU.

Space Votes To Shred Constitution

Zack. Can we talk? You're killing your constituents. Apparently on purpose. Did Nanna promise you extra ice cream? I mean it is obvious why Kilroy, Wilson and people like Driehaus voted for this Democrat protection bill, they're not quite right, but you?  You've voted to laden your district with more taxes, you've voted to put a lot of your constituents out of work, you've voted to burden your constuents with debt for generations and now you vote to ensure you can do so with impunity for as long as you want.

H.R. 5175:

to amend the Federal Election Campaign Act of 1971 to prohibit foreign influence in Federal elections, to prohibit government contractors from making expenditures with respect to such elections, and to establish additional disclosure requirements with respect to spending in such elections, and for other purposes

Motion to reconsider laid on the table Agreed to without objection.
On passage Passed by recorded vote: 219 - 206 (Roll no. 391).

GM is restricted in supporting its best interests and that of its workers and shareholders, but the unions crippling GM, its workers and its shareholders can spend, even borrow, what ever it wants to support its socialist platform and elected officials. Whoa Zack, them ain't exactly rules according to Hoyle. Well, you probably knew that when you voted. BTW, did you guys get around to reading this bill?

Why do you hold us in such low regard Zack? Of course you'll probably just chuckle and say that we voted for you. Zack, we've got a problem here. You plan to ever be around to talk?

Blago Aide Says Obama Knew Fix Was In

Well, who didn't know this was coming...

Harris: Obama knew of Blagojevich plot

"The president understands that the governor would be willing to make the appointment of Valerie Jarrett as long as he gets what he's asked for. . . . The governor gets the Cabinet appointment he's asked for," Harris said, explaining a recorded call.

Looks like the ChiTown rookie gots some 'splainin to do.

Obama Berating Petraeus In 2007

“I opposed the war in 2002. I opposed it in 2003. I opposed it in 2004. I opposed it in 2005. I opposed it in 2006.”

I love when he mocks then President Bush for saying "kick ass." Stupid statement tends to come around and, well, bite you in the ...

On Iraq then, "there are no good options, there are bad options and worse options." As usual, Obama got it wrong on the surge, but it gave hm a chance to pontificate about that which he knew, and knows, nothing about.

McChrystal Out Petreaus In

Random thoughts and reactions to Obama's talk:

Wrong decision. (to fire McChrystal)
Right call. (To name Petreaus)

"It is the right thing for our national security." Obama. speaking about team work. The President thinks that General McChrystal broke the military code, interrupted the chain of command and undermined civilian control of the military.

A change of personnel, not a change of policy.

Respects McChrystal. (Obama)

PR victory for the terrorists and Rolling Stone magazine.

If only he was this decisive with the Gulf oil spill.

Where is talk of that back stabbing lying jerk Eikenberry?

FOX News: McChrystal Out And Petreaus Back In

I smell perfume being poured on rotten fish. The Big O knows his spin.

Stimulus Fail

The economy is a product of Obama's policies and that ain't pretty.

New-home sales plunge 33 pct with tax credits gone

"We fear that the appetite to buy a home has disappeared alongside the tax credit," Paul Dales, U.S. economist with Capital Economics," wrote in a note. "After all, unemployment remains high, job security is low and credit conditions are tight."

Gee Paul, you think?

McChrystal, Obama, Ruffled Feathers And Disaster in Afghanistan

General McChrystal made a huge mistake when he and his staff spoke plainly to a reporter from Rolling Stone. Rich Galen has covered that turf in his usual brilliance, but that is not the point here. The point is the unfolding disaster in Afghanistan and how hurt feelings and, yes, poor judgement might get more soldiers killed than need be and the loss of Afghanistan.

President Obama seems to have less interest in Afghanistan than he displayed in his boring and horrible speech concerning the gulf oil spill. In Afghanistan Obama has flailed and misdirected military and diplomatic efforts aimed at victory. Worse, he has hindered them.

Now we are about to engage in major efforts to pin down and kill the Taliban. Now is not the time to have McChrystal engaged in political bloodletting in Washington even though McChrystal brought it on himself. One doesn't settle scores with a general who has obvious contempt for this administration when it abets our enemy in killing our troops and possibly brings our defeat in Afghanistan.

Congressmen like David Obey and Harry Reid have their panties in a twist, but when don't they? They want to bring this soldier down Truman style. I really don't give a damn what they feel. I do care that both of them and their ilk in Congress don't want our victory in Afghanistan. Or, at least they don't care whether we win or not. They just want the war budget back in their hands to squander at will.

I say fire Obey, Reid and others like them and send McChrystal back to Afghanistan to do his job.

Gulf Oil Spills Onto Obama

The WH will appeal of course. Being caught with their pants down and egg on their face what else can they do. Obama went for the spotlight, botched the show and now has to admit he acted illegally and without precedent. In short, he acted like a rookie.

“Gulf oil spill: Obama moratorium on drilling is struck down”

What will he tell the unions?

Obama KNEW About Oil Leaks Before Explosion And Did Nothing

The believed competency of the administration has been an illusion from the start.

Resign... or Change, Mr. President

It seems incomprehensible that the president and other members of the administration still have jobs when it is now being reported that the federal government was apprised by BP on February 13 that the Deepwater Horizon oil rig was leaking oil and natural gas into the ocean floor.

In fact, according to documents in the administration's possession, BP was fighting large cracks at the base of the well for roughly ten days in early February.

Further it seems the administration was also informed about this development, six weeks before to the rig's fatal explosion when an engineer from the University of California, Berkeley, announced to the world a near miss of an explosion on the rig by stating, "They damn near blew up the rig."

 It's also now being reported that BP was asking for the administration's help on this matter long before the deadly accident and the now gushing well of tar.

Democratic Underground Hilarity!

It's lonely out there in BDS land, especially when one can't trust fellow travelers BDSers to properly keep the right aura. To alleviate that loneliness there has to be new rules. If you break them it will result in deportation and immediate punishment if found to be back as an illegal alien. No matter what, Obama and Democrats ROCK! Every blessed one of them! Except those that don't rock. Then they just suck. Like Bush. Morons.

{ } Inappropriate attacks against Democrats
– Insults against prominent Democrats, such as “Fuck Obama.”
– Name-calling against prominent Democrats. Calling Barack Obama “Barry” or some other name.
– Repeating Republican partisan attacks against Democrats.
– Broadly suggesting that there is no difference between Barack Obama and George W. Bush, or that there is no difference between Democrats and Republicans. (Arguing that specific policies are the same would be permitted.)
– Suggesting that President Obama has perpetrated a “con job” or “fraud,” or similarly over-the-top assertions of bad faith.
– Advocating voting against Democrats, or in favor of third-party or GOP candidates.
– Broad-brush smears against Democrats generally. Broad expressions of contempt toward Democrats generally.
I got this from This Ain't Hell which is a great blog and on this day gave me a huge chuckle. Thanks.

Why Not Ohio? Low-Carbon Mass Transportation Not Wanted

Those that love big government live big government solutions the people do not want. Case in point, Low-Carbon Mass Transit which is a fancy version of saying mass transit.

Buses, trains, trolleys, subways, light rail and other versions are used in densely populated areas for rush hours twice a day and run empty the rest of hours in service and sit idle nights. Most Americans do not live in densely populated areas such as urban environs, but in smaller cities, towns, villages and suburbs. It is the suburbs that really ticks of the progressives, especially the inhabitants independence.

These people calling for mass transportation desire the demise of the automobile and if it irks those pesky Americans who do not share their vision  it makes the idea more attractive. That big government elitists get sniffy when their lessors don't agree only makes them scream things like "global warming", "save the environment" and "low-carbon mass transportation" as scare tactics.

They have two problems: first, they've screamed this nonsense for so long that nobody believes them any more and secondly, people don't want to be dictated to and they will not give up their independence. Actually, there is one more problem in that the visionaries will scream, "but they must!" which make people reply, "screw off." Not a learning moment of dialogue.

Personally, I love trains. I have ever since I first rode on a train as a child. I hate what government has done to trains through union boosting legislation, their dreadful train designs and and their complete mismanagement of Amtrak. Just like Amtrak, health care, corporate take overs and other invasions of private lives and business, the government will screw things up. If you put the government of charge of the Gobi desert there will be a sand shortage within months. The bigger the bureaucracy the less efficient it is and our government (re)proves it with each new day.

Why not Ohio? Because we hate mediocrity, bad service, high prices and the loss of our independence. In short, we hate bureaucracies, their supporters and their attitude. Leave us alone. Please.

The Worst Kind Of 'Dreary And Familiar Politics'

You just can't make this stuff up.

Obama Puts Business And Workers Out Of Work And Then Blames Republicans

Women, children and minorities hit hardest!

President Barack Obama on Saturday pinned blame on Republicans for making life harder for the unemployed and for those who could lose their jobs without new federal intervention. He did so even as he sought to distance himself from the "dreary and familiar politics" of Washington.

I worked in what Obama calls the "dreary and familiar politics" of Washington. It was an exciting job and an even more exciting time of change. If Obama can't handle it maybe he should just pack up the wife and kids and get the Hell out. Oh wait, that would leave us with O'Biden the Comic and Mummy Pelosi. We are so screwed.

The Teleprompter, Miffed, Didn't Like The Speech Either

This week, President Obama delivered what has been declared by commentators on the left and right one of the worst Oval Office addresses in presidential history. How ironic that Obama’s worst rhetorical hour came in the very same week we celebrate the 70th anniversary of perhaps the greatest speech ever delivered in the English language: Winston Churchill’s “Finest Hour” address.

Is The Gulf Spill Clean Up A Hoax?

Instapundit has a reader who says it is. Others have suggested that the explosion was not an accident while others say that the clean up isn't being botched, it is purposely being not done to force a "comprehensive" energy package.

Is it better to appear to be an underhanded politicians or the Keystone Cops? Have voters finally come to understand that there may be no difference between the two?

Maybe the feds and the Obama Administration are telling the truth and they are just a bunch of incompetent boobs. They turn away help. They tell affected states to sit on their hands.They won't allow video or photographs unless they are in controlled situation such as Obama or someone weeping or kneeling on the beach as if in anguish.

Whoever is in charge, and it appears that Obama isn't capable of being in charge, they aren't getting the job done. Agencies across the federal government are stepping on each other's toes, countermanding the orders of other agencies, enforcing one law, but not another in a pattern that makes not sense and is definitely not working together.

This much disorganization going on for so long almost becomes plausible when seen through the lens of a hoax, especially in a light that exposes that this progressive administration really wants governmental control of business, industry, health and energy.

Maybe Axlerod was told that the dead whale had a "Save Obama" sticker on its tail.

BP Oil Spill: Against Gov. Jindal's Wishes, Crude-Sucking Barges Stopped by Coast Guard

While the Gulf Coast governors have developed plans with the Coast Guard's command center in the Gulf, things begin to shift when other agencies start weighing in, like the Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
"It's like this huge committee down there," Riley said, "and every decision that we try to implement, any one person on that committee has absolute veto power."

The Keystone Cops EPA couldn't even spell environment if it wasn't in their title, but they can shut down a farmer for a puddle in the north forty. If Obama is involved I'm sure there will be a "prevailing wage" argument over union versus volunteer workers as the oil spreads more and more. This gang in the WH is going to provide health care for all and save the world? They could be called the Hole in the Wall Gang except they can't find the wall let alone their hole. This is embarrassing.

“John McCain, you sir are not a war hero. You were captured, sir. A true war hero would have killed himself, sir, before giving himself to the enemy, sir. A real hero is me. Look at me, sir. Look at me. Drink it in. For I am true heroism risking my life by speaking against the powers that be. And people think you're a hero?! How dare you sir, HOW DARE YOU!? AND HOW DARE THEM!!??”

It's too bad Olbermann and kos are breaking up. To people on sedatives they seemed a couple made for each other.

Chris Matthews' Tingle Turns To Tinkle

This "hearing" is nothing more than a push to a new "energy policy" with cap and trade included which, when combined is nothing more than a progressive attempt to grab more power and money from citizens. Using Waxman as the lead speaker is, well, dubious. Waxman couldn't convince a pig to wallow in mud, but he would pass legislation to make the pig do so.

Plug The Damned Hole With Golf Balls

Why Not Ohio: My $1.2 Billion Walk

Our bike trail is extremely busy with approx 15 riders a day and possibly 30-50 riders on weekends that can whisk their way to nowhere past beautiful statues made especially for the path. I think that's worth a couple hundred million.

Obama administration spends $1.2 billion on cycling and walking initiatives

In March, Mr Obama's transportation secretary, Ray LaHood, announced a policy "sea change" that gives biking and walking projects the same importance as automobiles in transportation planning and the selection of projects for federal money.

Maybe we could start farming some wind and have geothermal drinking fountains right next to this transportation project so we can get even more money. What if we add cute puppies. And kittens!

Harry Reid's Reelection Plan - Lie

Just as Reid has done in Congress as a US Senator he is now doing in his home state as he tries to get reelected to yet another term. As hapless Harry dissembles he appoints others to lie for him. Now he has the vaunted Washington Post enlisting Greg Sargent to shade, spin and lie for them and he is doing what he's known for on behalf of the vaunted Sen. Harry Reid. Legal Insurrection has the goods of the Sargent Major of Newspeak who works for newspeak central, the Washington Post.

Greg Sargent Targets Sharron Angle, Hits WaPo

Sargent is embarrassing The Washington Post by turning its blog into nothing more than a political campaign website, going far beyond the usual political opinion columnists. Sargent may be targeting Angle, but he is hitting WaPo.

Why doesn't WaPo just sub-contract out to Media Matters or Think Progress?

The early attacks on Angle have been planned by the Reid campaign, but fortunately, Harry Reid is who Harry Reid is.

People like Reid and Sargent deserve each other. Good people don't deserve their like.

Obama Lies About Oil

There is no way to catalogue the lies that Obama lied about, lies about the tragedy in the gulf, tonight. He lied through his teeth.

Clean energy? How about clean talk.

You lie Obama.

You want an energy bill, with increased costs, Obama. with wind and solar foolishness.

This guy is a total loser.

He has no clue.

Pray for courage?

Obama hasn't an idea how to deal with this problem. He is a president without an idea.

I am relieved that his speech is over. It was so embarrassing.

Most obvious lie: Juan Williams was impressed. He thought it unique that Obama called upon God. Which God? Juan is so shallow.

Cumulative Voting Another Stab In The Heart Of The Constitution

UPDATE: I was wrong in this post. My commenter was right. Each citizen, not just Hispanics, get 6 votes. Though less unconstitutional, I believe cumulative voting is still undermining our constitution and meant to give extra leverage to special voting blocs.

I am really stunned at the blatant steps taken by activists, whether they be on the court or not, to destroy this Republic. In this case, because some special interest group was unhappy with fair elections, each Hispanic voter will now get 6 votes while non-Hispanic voters will only get one vote in an election. This is no joke. It is called cumulative voting to make elections more "fair". Fair and unbalanced.

Residents get 6 votes each in suburban NY election

 Voters in Port Chester, 25 miles northeast of New York City, are electing village trustees for the first time since the federal government alleged in 2006 that the existing election system was unfair. The election ends Tuesday and results are expected late Tuesday night.

Although the village of about 30,000 residents is nearly half Hispanic, no Latino had ever been elected to any of the six trustee seats, which until now were chosen in a conventional at-large election. Most voters were white, and white candidates always won.

Federal Judge Stephen Robinson said that violated the Voting Rights Act, and he approved a remedy suggested by village officials: a system called cumulative voting, in which residents get six votes each to apportion as they wish among the candidates. He rejected a government proposal to break the village into six districts, including one that took in heavily Hispanic areas.

This is so wrong on so many levels, but for activists it achieves their goals such as making it easier for special interest and anti-American groups like La Raza and MEChA to steal not just the Southwestern United States, but also the vote of every other American. It is disgusting.

Obama Uses Oil Spill To Slip Another Takeover Through - You Body

This is from Zero Hedge which pretty much nails the story. I'm sure they hammered this out in between pizza, beer and a few trips to the WH balcony for a butt or two.

Clinton Still In The White House?

I thought Bubber and Hill would have asked a lot more based on their Lincoln Bedroom rent and lease costs in the 90s, but then sellers must take into account the snappy economy we're enjoying at the moment.

Is The White House for Sale?

As we looked through the latest properties to hit the market this weekend, we came across a rather famous address that is apparently now for sale: 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW -- aka The White House.

Redfin has the executive lodging listed for $10 million. The 55,000 square-foot property has a price per square foot of $182.

Obviously this is an error. It looks like Redfin software pulled an example listing from the website by mistake. That example listing was the White House. We have e-mailed Redfin for comment.

Aside from the price per square foot calculation, the thing that we like best about the listing is that it is for sale by owner.

Las Vegas Review-Journal Lights The Way To The Total Demise Of Print

They are illuminating the path to irrelevance with a burning light of stupidity. Instead of embracing new media to help drive up their readership, thus advertising dollars, the Review-Journal is attacking people for quoting it.

8 more websites sued over R-J copyrights; 34 total

I do not believe they understand the maxim, “I don’t care what you say about me, as long as you spell my name right.” Of course, after attacking bloggers they may start caring about what is said about them or, more importantly, the complete silence about them.

Famous Ship Needs Rescue

Once a formidable opponent on the high seas, defeating the Spanish fleet at Manila Bay during the Spanish-American War and announcing the United States' arrival as a world power, today the USS Olympia faces an uncertain future.

Olympia, the lone surviving naval ship from the Spanish-American War, is in danger of being scrapped or turned into an artificial reef, unless funds can be raised to keep her intact and above water. As she stands today, the cruiser displays extensive damage, particularly to her hull. Historic steel-hull ships like Olympia should be dry-docked every 20 years for maintenance and repairs; Olympia has remained in the water continuously since 1945.

In 1921, Olympia performed her final naval mission: carrying the body of Unknown Soldier from France to the United States.

Obama: Still A Muslim

Not seeing this on the news which isn't surprising whether true or not. It is also not surprising that Obama is betraying Israel nor is it surprising that the Democrats in Congress are betraying Israel. The question is why.

Obama, a 'Strategic Catastrophe'
Israeli officials say it's not Iran that is Israel's greatest threat
"Israel's relations with the US are at a low point, and Obama poses a danger to Israel," wrote Nahum Barnea in the nation's biggest newspaper Yediot Ahronot.

The feeling among the Israeli public is that Obama is appeasing the Muslim world at the expense of Israel.

"The American President told me in confidence that he is a Muslim," said Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Aboul Gheit on Nile TV. That could explain why Obama has instructed that the term "Islamic extremism" no longer be used in official government documents and statements.

This is the statement recorded:

Adul Gheit said he had a one-on-one meeting with Obama, where the US President told him that He was still a Muslim, the son of a Muslim father, the step son of Muslim stepfather, that his half brothers in Kenya are Muslims, and that he was sympatetic towards the Muslim agenda.

Adul Gheit claimed Obama told the Arabs to show patience. Obama promised that once he overcame some domestic issues, like the Health care reform, he would show the Muslim World how to deal with Israel.

The Jews Are Home Helen

I wondered when someone would point this out.

Genetic testing raises an age-old question — are the Jews a people, or a religion?

Obama Gonna Kick Me Some ...

Union And Socialist Thug Slugs Tea Party Participant

Governor Spencer is a union organizer, a socialist and a black liberation activist. He is also a thug and a bully. Oh, and a loser. These people seem to always show up at Tea Party rallies, not to rally for freedom, but to squash free speech and to act out their Socialist inadequacies concerning dissent.

People like Governor Spencer have gotten away with their actions and attitudes for years. Actually, people like Governor Spencer have been encouraged to act and think as they do. It sells news.

I hope he is arrested and put away. Free speech scares people like him.

The US Senate's Constitution Change Showdown

In the name of Mother Gaia or, more likely, trying to keep the loony left in line, the Obama Administration and his fellow thinkers in Congress want to subvert the US Constitution and give illegal power to an agency of the federal government. That the ruling given to EPA is patently foolish as well as an economic destroyer is besides the point. The EPA should not have this power nor should Congress abrogate their duties, but in the name of feel-good politics and not wanting to embarrass President Obama and themselves they are trying to stop the legislation cited below.

Climate change showdown

The president is threatening to veto a resolution from Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) that would ban the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) from regulating carbon emissions.

But if the president were forced to use his veto to prevent legislation emerging from a Congress in which his own party enjoys substantial majorities, it would be a humiliation for him and for Democrats on Capitol Hill.
So Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (Nev.) and other Democratic leaders are doing what they can to stop it.

Every senator that votes against this bill should be voted out of office at the first opportunity. No one can balance a questionable idea such as global warming or whatever the fools are calling it now by destroying the balance of power within our government structure.

Superintendent Admits Unions Control Schools

Most parents are aware that teachers, no matter how bad, are almost impossible to get rid of. Most parents are not aware that unions, not schools nor parents, are the deciders of which teachers get hired. Unions have the power, not PTAs, school boards not school principles. Unions are in control and people that don't play their way are not people that will be part of public education.

Marine: Union bullying me to pay $500

State law requires certain public employees to join unions as a condition of employment or pay a so-called agency fee, which goes toward the cost of collective bargaining. But Godin said he shouldn’t have to pay the $500 fee because he receives no benefit from the local union. He provided a letter from the local union demanding he join or pay the fee by the school year’s end. Godin said in 14 years of teaching in Worcester public schools, he’s never been asked to pony up for the union.

If Godin has an out it is that he is employed by the US military, but really that isn't the question. How is it that unions have the power to demand payment whether one wishes to join or belong to a union no matter what. And, more importantly, who gave unions the power to fire people that don''t join their union? It is pitiful that a public school superintendent admits that the union has power over the employment of teachers.

Worcester schools superintendent Melinda J. Boone said she has asked the district school attorney to investigate a way to keep Godin on board, but added, “this is really a union matter.”

A union matter? Employment of teachers should be decided by those involved in educating the students not by some union thug that bullies individuals, schools, parents and the nation. The important lesson here is that unions can have a part in the process, but not a place over the process. They stink at what they do anyway and they are making education a joke.

Helen Thomas Controversy Isn't A Black Thing, But A Policy Thing

You see? It's easy if you can just see. Of course, you can't see because in our world it is impossible for you to see our truth. How sad. For you.

Helen Thomas: No Apologies Necessary

Helen Thomas’ statements were about policy, not people, and for that, we should not have lost her. To liken what Helen has said to racist rants inviting African-Americans to return to Africa is disingenuous at best, and more directly, a twisted misinterpretation designed only to silence opposing views to Israeli expansionism.

The article in short is "straw man wanted" and straw man found article. Her statement about Jews getting the Hell out of Israel and going to Poland and Germany was simply policy talk and had nothing to do with blacks in America. They're two separate things, but liberals will join them to deflect the odious thought process that came out of her mouth and to firmly place the political ball back in the conservative court. In the pro-Palestine/liberal mind when Helen said those things she wasn't being personal or anti-Semitic. She was probing possible policy changes that America should ponder which shows her strength of character. Of course, these are the same people that shout "racist" when anyone disagrees with Health Care Reform or Cap and Trade thus the rambling and incoherent rant attempting to link her remarks to America's racist past and current racist mind think towards Obama over policy. No matter how many paragraphs are expended, in the end, Thomas is a racist Jew hater and Americans are not racist because they do not like Obama Administration policy. The former is about race and the latter is not.

How about a new headline for this story; Helen Thomas: No Apologies Necessary Because Everybody Knows The Jews Are The Problem and the the story could go on to outline her support for Palestine, her hatred of Jews and her history of being a grating prima donna that people have petted for 40 years just to mollify her. She has always been less vicious when being petted. Like a pitbull. A pitbull that targets Jews.

Larry Kaczala

Larry has left us. I knew him as an honest and actually funny guy. One day we were going over proposed answers for an upcoming press conference and I had asked him to think outside the box which he thought funny. After a break he returned to the "podium" we had set up in his living room and placed a box next to himself and, with a straight face, answered all the questions.

Rest in peace Larry. I believe you deserve at least that.

America Is Broke, $42K Per Citizen Owed, So Democrats Say "Raise Taxes On Oil!"

Actually, it now about $42,352.49 owed by each citizen of the United States to pay off the national debt. If calculated for just those that actually work, it is about double, but why worry? The Democrats will raise taxes to cover your share of the debt. Of course, you'll have to pay more taxes to cover the new taxes plus the ever rising national debt, but that's your problem because the Democrats are only here to help. Unfortunately, they actually believe that.

Democrats propose further tax hike on offshore oil
Senate Democrats are moving to quintuple the tax that oil companies pay into an oil spill liability fund.

The move would raise $15 billion over the coming decade as Congress seeks to shore up the fund in the wake of the catastrophic spill in the Gulf of Mexico. But it's also being used to ease a tax hike passed by the House on investment fund managers.

Of course the Democrats have also figured out how manufacturers, gas pumps and other sellers of oil based products like home heating oil will be able to ascertain at the point of sale who makes over $250,000 per year and who doesn't, because a promise is a promise and Obama would never break a promise. Like he would never raise taxes on those who make under $250,000, right?
Oil as class warfare brought to you by the Democratic Party of the United States of America. It's not just for sci-fi anymore.

Bwarney Frank Wants More Authority And Ability

I don't suppose that he was talking shoe lifts and a gym membership when he spoke of more authority and ability, but still, Barney reminds me of O'Rourke's law of "Giving money and power to government is like giving whiskey and car keys to teenage boys," except these boys came to see Barney. On their own accord. Is there no decency left?

It sounds and looks a tad like a fraternity party. I suppose out of gender respect the boys were able to subvert their Heteronormativity, and the cake girl with the pasties, until after Barney withdrew. TOGA!

Reason's Matt Welch 'Revolt' Misses One Point

Matt Welch has a good post concerning the growing bureaucracy of government, unions and public sector growth. It is obvious that bureaucracy only works when it is lean and answerable to the leaders it supports. That ours has become a bloated obese monster which is incapable of achieving that which it is supposed to is a shame put upon our country. Land of the free indeed.

The point I had hoped to see in his piece is that these unelected bureaucrats are governing us, in a large part because of the labyrinth of power they've created, instead of the elected officials we send to Washington and state capitals. Unseen hands and minds have created an unrecognizable government that over regulates us and overrules elected officials, but unlike elected officials they stay in power forever. Hell, they can't even be fired for complete incompetence and the bureaucracy self replicates like soulless monsters in science fiction novels.

That is the real revolt by the governed, anger towards faceless bureaucrats governing us without being elected not being accountable and doing it all poorly.

Obama Blows Off D-Day's 66th Anniversary For Theater Gala And Drinks

The program that Obama attended after gourmet canapes and drinks at the White House:

The programme:
Ty Burrell, welcome
Kelly Clarkson, "Everybody Got Their Something" and "Way Over Yonder"
George Lopez
From the Ford's Theatre production of Little Shop of Horrors
Christopher Kale Jones and Jenna Coker-Jones, "Suddenly, Seymour"
Soldiers' Chorus of the United States Army Field Band
"My Country, 'Tis of Thee" and "America the Beautiful" Robin Roberts, family life in the White House
Dick Van Dyke and The Vantastix, "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Medley"
Lionel Richie, "Three Times a Lady" and "All Night Long" with the Joyce Garrett Celebration Singers


Presentation of the Lincoln Medals
Renee Fleming, "Soul Meets Body" and "In Your Eyes"
Cast members from Disney and Cameron Mackintosh's Broadway musical Mary Poppins
Laura Kelly and Gavin Lee, "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious"
From the Broadway musical Memphis Montego Glover, "Colored Woman"
General Colin Powell, a special tribute Renee Fleming, Soldiers' Chorus of the United States Army Field Band, Bill Conti and the Spirit of America Orchestra with the Entire Company "Battle Hymn of the Republic"

What Obama didn't think important:
D-Day casualties:

British - 2700
Canadians - 946
Americans - 6603

15,000-20,000 French civilians died with an unknown number of casualites.
 Britain: 2,700 killed
United States: 1,465 killed
Canada: 500 killed
 Germany: 4,000 killed

I could not find any reference to the soldiers or civilians singing "Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" or enjoying canapes of any kind, but what is important here is that Obama has some quality down time from all the great work he has been doing on that spill, jobs and the economy not to mention Israel and Palestine.

I'm sure all soldiers understand the sacrifice he has made for the country.

Where In The World Is Zack Space?

No town hall meetings. No appearances in his district. Maybe a few "constituent" meetings, probably private, if he has had any at all. So, where is Zack? He isn't answering any questions from his constituents and he sure isn't meeting them face to face. Hiding, that's representing his district?

Where has Zack Space been?

How Weak Has Obama Actually Made America? Very Weak.

Iran has joined the Gaza blockade flotilla. Will North Korea be next. Who else? A coalition of weak nations become strong through their alliance and Obama, as usual, is clueless.

Gaza blockade: Iran offers escort to next aid convoy

How stupid and incompetent can a Harvard boy from Chicago be? It appears, very stupid. As a nation, voters, we should hire training wheels and a nanny for this poseur to make sure he doesn't stub his toe going to his next extravigancia involving a tent and the White House. He may endanger himself as well as America. It is America that I am worried about. I have given up on caring about him.

Turn Iran into a parking lot. Paving to nonunion companies. Union leader wouldn't want to get too far from their table at the Monocle.

Obama is, quite frankly, not up to the job. Obviously.

6 Month Review: Dems Are Focused On ?

Nana, Harry and Barack stated that they would focus like laser beams on "Jobs, jobs, jobs" in 2010. After 6 months of this intense focus unemployment hovers above or below 10% if one decides to count temporary census workers as full time workers, especially those census workers that have been counted as new hires 4 or 5 times.

What have Nana, Harry and Barack been doing?

Taking over private business and industry while merely over regulating others
Creating legislation that voters don't want
Ignoring voters opposed to legislation they don't want
Investigating foes as racists
Tearing Wall Street down
Trying to hold anxious allies like unions back from forcing such issues as their destruction of the private ballot
Insulting our allies across the globe
Trying to censure the Internet
Growing the deficit by trillions
Doing for medical care what they have done for welfare
Investigating any and all companies or corporation to enable more control and shutdowns by the federal government
Opposed enforcing immigration laws
Bungling the effort to control the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico

The above is a partial list of their vaunted accomplishments, but where are the jobs? Where are the jobs bills? Have we missed the debate amongst themselves and their discussions with constituents?

It appears their job is doing everything other than helping their constituents with jobs. That's a shame, because I thought creating or getting out of the way so private enterprise could create jobs was their job.

Democrats/Obama Continue to Come To The Aid Of Backstabbing Rejected Republicans

Just as with Snarlin' Arlen in Pennsylvania who quit the Republican Party after he had quit the Democrat Party in hopes of keeping his cushy job, so it goes with another backstabber rejected by Republicans, Charlie Crist of Florida. The Democrats, it appears, like traitors and backstabbers.

Dem strategists turning to Crist in Florida Senate race
"They never would have signed on to the Crist campaign unless it was okay at the highest levels."

Just like Specter and Crist the Democrats will slide, shuffle and deceive to stay in power. Whatever. Even if Crist wins, which he might, his career is over. Nobody likes a politician so spineless as to enable them to squeeze through a rat hole.

SEIU Bloodsucking Red Cross

The SEIU, otherwisw known as the Democrat Party, is striking against the Red Cross over "blood safety" issues. BS. They are saying that unless the Red Cross caves that the SEIU will make sure that the blood supply won't be safe.

They are striking in:

West Virginia
New York

The Seiu and the AFL-CIO and other unions disrupting our blood supply shouldd be fired for being a huge part of the problem istead of being even a tiny bit of the solution.

Arizona And Other States Run By White Supremacists Says Rep Sanchez (D-El Loco)

Representative Linda Sanchez: White Supremacist Groups Behind Arizona Immigration Law
Rep. Linda Sanchez, D-Calif., told a Democratic Club on Tuesday that white supremacist groups are influencing lawmakers to adopt laws that will lead to discrimination.

"There's a concerted effort behind promoting these kinds of laws on a state-by-state basis by people who have ties to white supremacy groups," said the lawmaker, who is of Mexican descent. "It's been documented. It's not mainstream politics."

Documented? As in (un)documented workers?
Not mainstream politics? As in it's not mainstream politics to want all people to follow the law? Equally?

Robert De Niro Does Governor Christie And The Unions

It's not about teachers, it's about teamwork and I'm betting on Christie because the teacher's union worst nightmare is the governor bringing a baseball bat to the meeting. Just to make a point.

SURPRISE: Black Caucus Doesn't Like New Ethics Office Power To Investigate

It must be a coincidence that Ohio's Rep. Marcia Fudge is involved.

Black lawmakers want to limit new ethics office
Stung by a series of inquiries, nearly half the members of the Congressional Black Caucus want to scale back the aggressive ethics procedures that Democrats trumpeted after gaining control of Congress.

Rep. Marcia Fudge, D-Ohio, and 19 fellow black lawmakers in the all-Democratic caucus quietly introduced a resolution last week that would restrict the powers of the new independent Office of Congressional Ethics. The office, formed by Congress in 2008, is run by a panel of private citizens.

Madam Pelosi's swamp is getting oozier and wider and deeper.

Golf Gulf Disaster Competes For Obama's Attention

Known environmentalist Sir Paul McCartney jetted across the Atlantic to receive the Gershwin Award in a private concert at the White House from President Obama and his family and friends. I'm not sure if foreign policy and reponses to disasters are scheduled around Sasha and Malia's entertainment, but I would tell Sir Paul, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and others to check for President Obama's golf schedule to make sure he will have time for them.

As fishermen lose their jobs and businesses, as jobs slip away nationwide, as debt and deficits soar out of control and the Gulf of Mexico fills with crude, it's time for our President to sing "Hey Jude."

Presumably, known environmentalist Sir Paul McCartney will jet back across the Atlantic to his home castle and Obama will jet somewhere where there's a tee and a green.

Zack Space Votes To Repeal 'Don't Ask Don't Tell'

Zack Space (D-Pelosiland), in time of war, has decided that the repeal of "Don't Ask Don't Tell" is more pressing that focusing on the safety of our troops and the people of Afghanistan and Iraq.

In fact, all of Ohio's illustrious Democrats vote for repeal except for Dennis Kucinich. Kucinich? Yep.

This vote, just days before Memorial Day honoring our troops who died defending America,is just one more reminder of the debts that this administration is still paying for their help in getting Obama elected. A poor way to govern, but indicative of how this misguided and inept administration works. Or, more accurately, doesn't work.

Again, Zack, great job on being the Representative of your constituents. Remember them?

Robert Frank - London And Wales

My first introduction to Robert Frank was his The Americans. I still love it for its candid glimpses of America and I am, as well, still impressed by his art of photography. Though I am teaching myself color (non studio), it is black and white photography that whispers particular shots to me.

Black and white are the colors of photography. To me they symbolize the alternatives of hope and despair to which mankind is forever subjected.

Science And Hope

This is very cool. Disclaimer, I am friends with, sometimes work with and am a huge admirerer of David Welch at Whitecoat Strategies. That said, take a look at this incredible story. It makes me smile.

Israeli Commandos Should Get 1st "Courageous Restraint Medal"

The world's progressives have their panties in a twist over the armed and violent "peace" activists ships being boarded by Israeli commandos as they tried to thwart a blockade of Gaza. There was no need or logic to the "peace" activists starting a military engagement that resulted in death and injury to Israeli soldiers and to the "peace" activists.

Let's just drop the "peace" moniker.

The militants, actually terrorists, planned this attack. They desired death and injury on both sides because news of the attack, especially any images, would incite further anger and violence against Israel. The terrorists are exceeding their own expectations and the world press should stand in shame for abetting terrorists that are little more than animals.

The world press should be probing and asking why there was so little death amongst the terrorists. Israeli commandos are capable of critical offense and defense tactics with brutal results. The terrorists constantly attacking Israel and murdering Israelis has insured that Israeli forces are trained and capable of inflicting maximum damage. That they didn't shows incredible training, thinking and restraint.

As for those that died, why hasn't the press asked who ordered them to die. Those who order such attacks should be found and dealt with. Swiftly and with no mercy.

UPDATE: Webutante has an outstanding post concerning this unprovoked attack. Read and follow the links.
