He's finally relevant!
Here's the good news: The feisty congressman from Texas, whose insurgent "Ron Paul Revolution" presidential campaign rankled Republican leaders last year, now has the GOP House leadership on his side -- backing a measure that generated paltry support when he first introduced it 26 years ago.
Here's the bad: Unfortunately for Paul, the bill appears to be idling in the House Financial Services Committee, which is chaired by Barney Frank, D-Mass. The bill has been sitting there, gathering co-sponsors, since Paul introduced it in late February.
Douche of the Day: Barney Frank.
Like that bill will ever see the light of day.
Someone, possibly everyone, isn't paying attention in Washington. They say they were surprised by this:
U.S. consumer confidence took an unexpectedly steep slide in June, figures released on Tuesday showed, suggesting the 18-month-long recession had yet to loosen its grip on the economy.
Yeah, Barry and Crew were surprised by this news, by the faltering numbers. Well, if you don't live in the real world and have real worries about energy bills, food bills and gas prices, I guess things do look pretty swell.
Any of us who do live in the real world and feel the pinch could have set them straight. But we all know by now, or at least should know by now, that Washington has no interest in the real world. Or real folks.
If you missed the RINOs who voted YES for cap-and-trade, who are trying to steal your future, go to the new website www.defeattheliberals.com and make some phone calls or educate some folks.
I'll leave you with this just because it made me laugh. Some folks are CrAzAzY!
Dude charged with spraying his wife with a garden hose because she was smoking. Best line in the article that I am assuming will be his defense:
The affidavit says he claimed the water was simply "over spray."
Hey, it could happen.....

The Obamabots are a confused bunch. They say they think Barry is a swell leader (51%) but contradict themselves with trusting him (30%). Ouch. With the economy as the most important issue in front of us, a whopping 81% say it's so, then those that can't seem to face the truth of what is happening with their man, The One they adore no matter what he seems to do to them, have some splainin' to do. Why aren't you cutting your losses? Do it now. Open your eyes and SEE what the rest of us see. Your man is out to hurt you. Personally, I think it is the dance-with-the-one-you-brung-to-the-dance syndrome. I say let him walk. You can catch a ride home with us.
Sonia SotoMAYor news:
The Supreme Court ruled Monday that white firefighters in New Haven, Conn., were unfairly denied promotions because of their race, reversing a decision that high court nominee Sonia Sotomayor endorsed as an appeals court judge.
While I am not a lawyer, nor do I play one on the Internets (thanky Al Gore!), my gut is telling me this is not good news for Sonia. Will it mean she won't grab the brass ring at the bench Barry wishes her to have? Eh, my gut says she'll be confirmed. This will go down as just another example of her incompetence with THE LAW. No biggie. Who needs the pesky law when you're set for life on the Supreme Court?!
Even Barry's beloved England gets what John Boehner said about cap-and-trade: When asked why he read portions of the cap-and-trade bill on the floor Friday night, Boehner told The Hill, "Hey, people deserve to know what's in this pile of s--t."
Here's part of the article by Clive Crook:
The cap-and-trade bill is a travesty. Its net effect on short- to medium-term carbon emissions will be small to none. This is by design: a law that really made a difference would make energy dearer, hurt consumers and force an economic restructuring that would be painful for many industries and their workers. Congress cannot contemplate those effects. So the Waxman-Markey bill, while going through the complex motions of creating a carbon abatement regime, takes care to neutralise itself.
Gosh, if the civilized of the world understands what Barry is doing to us, why don't those who voted his behind in get it? Not that I'm blaming anyone. Wait. Yes, I am.
Not that we will let the Republicans who voted for the fiasco of cap-and-trade off any easier. Not gonna happen. Want to know who the eight were? Yeah, you do. Get ready for some fun. There is a new website dedicated in getting rid of Republican Rinos (Republican in Name Only). It's a battle cry for conservatives.
Let's go get us some Rinos. Go to www.defeattheliberals.com and start calling those RINOs.
If you want to know the full role call, go HERE. Depressing, but information that is imperative to know. It answers the question of who is trying to bring us to our knees for their own gain.
Billy Mays, rest in peace. I suggest we honor him with a 21- KABOOM! salute.

Oh man, I can't stop hilarious images of The Bide trying to relate to his crowd. After that tidbit, I am sure Joe's handlers (surely he has them, because if anyone in government needs them it is this man) were furiously talking exit strategies into their hidden mics as they checked the doors.
This headline made me shake my head at the obvious: Why so few women in infidelity club?
Um, because we don't think with our penis? Wait, ohhhhhhh, that's right, we don't have a penis, ergo it can't tell us what to do.
The article asks if women are more faithful or more honest, or just better at not getting caught.
Do women cheat? Duh. Yes. Women are outnumbered in Washington, so the odds of catching one of them is smaller.
My bet is that the men getting caught have few responsibilities keeping their family life together, that outside of work they are free as a bird to travel and stay at the office late (winkity wink). They start to believe their hype and feel entitled to whatever goodies are in the bag. They lose their moral compass. (stop laughing!) Their position in politics can lead to crazy aphrodisiac power and we all know what that does to women: DRIVES THEM LOCO. And how can any dude say no to that? Especially if she's hawt. So hawt. It was all her fault. So hawt.
The penis is crafty. Stop listening to it. YOU WORK FOR US! (hehe)
The Cap and Tax Fiction
Just read this part of this article. Afterwards, please use the righteous anger you feel and call your congressman TODAY.
The hit to GDP is the real threat in this bill. The whole point of cap and trade is to hike the price of electricity and gas so that Americans will use less. These higher prices will show up not just in electricity bills or at the gas station but in every manufactured good, from food to cars. Consumers will cut back on spending, which in turn will cut back on production, which results in fewer jobs created or higher unemployment. Some companies will instead move their operations overseas, with the same result.
When the Heritage Foundation did its analysis of Waxman-Markey, it broadly compared the economy with and without the carbon tax. Under this more comprehensive scenario, it found Waxman-Markey would cost the economy $161 billion in 2020, which is $1,870 for a family of four. As the bill's restrictions kick in, that number rises to $6,800 for a family of four by 2035.
Just in case the above didn't infuriate you enough, David Limbaugh wrote an article that will suffice in pushing you aver the edge: Throw the Bums Out
Read this. WAIT. Helmets on, and make sure the strap is se-cure.
But they not only have not conducted a bona fide examination of the man-made warming issue but also have not attempted to examine, in any remotely scientific way, how much their proposed bill would reduce global warming (assuming it exists to the extent they contend) or whether any such reductions would make any difference at all to humanity's short- or long-term health or happiness or anything else.
All of this would be outrageous enough if there were no economic costs associated with their proposal. But in fact, the costs would be astronomical and way beyond the calculations they are presenting -- fraudulently -- to the American people to stunt the opposition they'd encounter if the truth were revealed.Ticked off yet? Good, now burn the phone lines to Washington. DO IT!
Enjoy the weekend. Drink if you must. Just keep that helmet close. Safety first and all.

Jenny Sanford: Much is being written and psychoanalyzed about your absence next to Mark. Let me add my thoughts to the mix. BRAVO! I'll say it again, BRAVO! Not only do I think you are a terrific role model for all women in the face of pain and embarrassment, but I hope you punched his rucksack prior to kicking his sorry ass out the door. Hiking indeed.
Not only did Jenny not show up and stand by her sorry excuse for a husband, she issued a clearheaded statement in the whirlwind.
shouldn't be done.
Barrycare on the All Barack Channel: who watched, and if you did why the hell did you bother? I personally spent that time watching a Tyler Perry movie from NetFlix. Hey, don't judge me, he can be fairly funny.
First of all, the "special" tanked in the ratings. Comedy repeats scored higher. Ratings Burn! But my guess is that was just fine with Barry and Crew as they left the most telling part of their plan to the later hour. (the rest of this post is smoking crack in the font department, but i am having such internets and connection issues i am leaving it as is. sorry if you need a magnifying glass)
In addition to Obama’s longwinded responses, the ABC special left the most critical questions until the “Nightline” portion of the segment – after a 30-minute break for local news and likely fewer viewers.
One of the biggest points of contention opponents of government’s involvement in health care has been the threat that it would crowd out private health insurance providers by creating market forces they couldn’t compete with – or what Aetna Insurance president Ron Williams called it as part of the town hall: “introducing a new competitor that has rulemaking ability, the government would have.”Yeah, you can't have such damning information airing during primetime.
Yet, here's the part that makes me need to keep my puke-bucket close: Diane Sawyer asks Williams if the President is right in his assertions about having to keep the insurance companies honest.
What a laugh. Bar is gonna keep the insurance companies honest with his plan. See why they kept this to the later hour? The laughter would have crushed them. Kinda like the comedy rerun ratings did.
Wednesday. The prime-time program was the latest in a string of events designed to build public support for his plan to slow the rise in health care costs and expand coverage to the nearly 50 million uninsured.
Dr. Orrin Devinsky, a neurologist at the New York University Langone Medical Center, challenged Obama: What if the president's wife and daughters got sick? Would Obama promise that they would get only the services allowed under a new government insurance plan he's proposing?
To quote a wigged-out Whitney: Oh, hell to the nos.
Obama would never allow his loved ones to be subjected to what he's about to do to you. N-E-V-E-R. This is the most telling part of yesterday to me. Why do we allow politicians to have something better than we do? Do employers allow their employees better healthcare than they have? Do employers allow employees to run the ship? These thieving folks WORK FOR US. Why do we allow the entitlement? Whywhywhy?!
Here's hoping tomorrow's entry doesn't have the trouble it had today. Thanks for nothing Al.

Remember his name.
As Obama is afraid to be seen as "meddling" or refuses to be a "football" for Iran's political gain, let us take action where Barry refuses. Let us show our own failing President how things are done. Let us speak for Neda and all those who are losing their lives in the struggle for what has taken root in Iran: FREEDOM.
Neda went to the rally knowing the demonstrators were in grave danger. She told her friends who tried to dissuade her from going: "Don't worry, it's just one bullet and it's over,"
One bullet is all it took. Neda is now a martyr. She is as strong a symbol as any of our own attached to the sacrifice made in the name of freedom.
Thank you, Thaddeus. You have not only expanded Neda's voice, but ours as well.

Perez Hilton is a douche.
Hilton, who is openly gay, said in interview with The Associated Press that he called will.i.am a "faggot," a gay slur, inside the club after the musician told the blogger not to write about his band on his Web site.
"He was like 'You need to respect me.' He was in my face. He was obviously trying to intimidate me and scare me," Hilton said. "I was like 'I don't need to respect you. I don't respect you and I did say this, and I knew that it would be the worst thing I could possibly say to him because he was acting the way he was. I said 'You know what, I don't respect you and you're gay and stop being such a faggot.'"Perez, who is gay, used a slur known to rile gays. Love it. This is liberalism 101. You can't do it. I will DEMAND you not to do it. I will vilify you if you do it. But I can do it.
The best part, other than his long overdue punch to the head, is this: GLAAD is pissed.
"These are vulgar anti-gay slurs that feed a climate of hatred and intolerance toward our community. For someone in our own community to use it to attack another person by saying that it is, quote, ‘The worst possible thing that thug would ever want to hear,’ is incredibly dangerous. It legitimizes use of a slur that is often linked to violence against our community. And it sends a message that it is OK to attempt to dehumanize people by exploiting anti-gay attitudes.”
Perez thinks he has been victimized twice, which is one of the funniest things I have heard all year and that includes every false statement out of Biden's mouth. The I-am-GAY-and-in-your-face blogger who thinks nothing of trashing others thinks he has been victimized twice. Probably doesn't help that the rest of us cheered when the punch was landed. FINALLY!!!!
This is what the douche has said in response (try not to giggle):
Hahahahahahaha! He wants an apology from GLAAD. Again, liberalism 101: I'll do whatever i can get away with, but insist you apologize.
Careful GLAAD, you may be the next entry facing the wrath of Perez. He'll take a picture of you and use his magic white marks to give you horns, a pitchfork and x's for eyes as he insinuates you should die 'cause you're the debil.
That Perez does what he does on a daily basis, ripping apart celebrities for his amusement, and hasn't faced a beat-down prior to this is astonishing. Anyone who has heard him speak knows that he thinks he's entitled to do as he pleases and you better not mess with a gay. So unPC.
That the largest gay organization is after him to apologize makes the situation even tastier. Get him GLAAD! For once, I'm with you! Do not relent!! Make him say he's sorry and you'll be doing all of us a favor.
No way around it, Perez is the Douche of the Day.

I am a proponent against graphic or violent images, yet the subject matter is so important that I have made an exception.
WARNING: EXTREMELY GRAPHIC (annotations- the top and bottom banner on the video- can be turned off once the video starts by placing your cursor on the tab under the word "tube"- bottom right-hand side and then clicking the the top red-tab that pops up)
The identity of the woman could not be independently confirmed. But she is referred to on Twitter as Neda.
This is repression unmasked. (edit: i see we think alike) If you ever doubted evil exists, doubt no more. Her crime was to speak. To speak. To oppose her current government. To say what she believed to be the truth. Her truth. Not her government's.
Freedom will not come without more horror. To be free is everything to all people. To gain this freedom will cost the blood of their people. To keep this freedom will cost them even more.
Dear Holy God, may her struggle have not been in vain. May these people triumph over evil. May the world not look away.

I am hoping by Monday I'll be back here shaking my old man fist in the air. Until then I'll be on the floor with a heating pad.
Over and out.

1) He pissed off PETA by killing a fly, or as they defined it, he executed that poor fly. Anyone who pisses off PETA gets a virtual high-five from me.
2) He showed good judgment by warning (swatting at) the fly first, even going as far as to tell it to "get out of here" before taking action against it.
3) He showed decisive punitive action with no remorse by killing that annoying filthy fly.
4) He invited all to see his handiwork, to witness how it's done bitches, and going as far as telling the crew to film the dead carcass lifeless on the floor.
5) He gave the impression that he means what he says, i.e. leadership.
See for yourself.
That he pissed off PETA makes me enormously happy. Yes, we can! Barry, nay Mr. President, I am behind you today. I support your right to execute flies. Don't cave to those PETA nutjobs.
As a voter who staunchly opposes Obama, today I stand in support of his actions. It's a shame he refuses to focus his fly-killing powers into strong solid policies that I can support on a daily basis. But after all my helmet-wearing head-banging moments, I'll take what I can get.

Asked by CNBC’s John Harwood about perceptions Obama has gotten an easy ride from the press, the president called the charge “very hard for him to swallow,” but then acknowledged “generally positive” coverage. Also took yet another shot at Fox News.
“I’ve got one television station that is entirely devoted to attacking my administration…That’s a pretty big megaphone. You’d be hard pressed if you watched the entire day to find a positive story about me on that front,” Obama said.
Made me snort. He finds it hard. As hard as we find his policies/take-overs/out of control spending/ power grabs? Me thinks not.
To all the hatas and trolls out there: Ruh-roh!
A Nevada newspaper says it has been served a federal grand jury subpoena seeking information about readers who posted comments on the paper's Web site.
As you read the story the anon commenters used the words "fascist" and "Nazi", and another indicated people should be hung. While I never advocate violence, nor think one should expect to get away with it under a pseudonym, I think this is a big old step in the wrong direction. Yet, the oddest thing the subpoena asks for is the anon writer's credit card info.
What's up with that?!
President Barack Obama said on Tuesday that worrying about the U.S. government's finances "keeps me awake at night" and the country needed to start planning now to tackle soaring deficits.
Dude, instead of losing sleep, how 'bout reining in spending?! Seems like a plan to me. But then again, I'm not a politician. My bad.
Barry's plan for government dominated healthcare is continuing to show signs of opposition.
Three months later, disagreement has turned to discord over a key element of Obama's health care prescription: his insistence on a "public plan" to compete with private insurers. America's Health Insurance Plans, an industry trade group, is joined by the
I don't know about you guys, but I am praying for the destruction of this plan every day, many times a day. May good win out.
Who doesn't love curmudgeonly John Stossel? He wrote an article about Glenn Beck that I wanted to share for any libbies reading here. Glenn has been astute in his observations about America's course and for that reason I will occasionally listen to his show (as an entertainer, he leaves me shaking my head most days, so it's best I take him in fits and starts). The left HATES Glenn as evidenced by this:
Much of the mainstream media despises Beck. "The Daily Show's" Jon Stewart quipped, "Finally, a guy who says what people who aren't thinking are thinking." MSNBC's Keith Olbermann has repeatedly named Beck "worst person in the world," and one of his MSNBC colleagues compared his TV show to watching a "car accident." On "The View," Whoopi Goldberg called him "a lying sack of dog mess."
Just on that paragraph alone I finished the article. To my surprise, Glenn talked about sex with his hot wife as well. Made me laugh at the truth of what he offers. Quick! Go find the sexy-time part!
A superintendent who is overdue for a tropical vacation:
A Maine high school senior was denied his diploma at graduation after he took a bow when his name was called, pointed to his friends and blew a kiss to his family.

On the night of June 24, the media and government become one, when ABC turns its programming over to President Obama and White House officials to push government run health care
There are many folks who only get there news from the Obama TV, those who still trust the "news" anchors. Come on Charlie Gibson, what are they giving you in exchange for your ethics and journalistic integrity?
I can honestly say I wasn't surprised. Barry is trying everything he can get away with to cram his healthcare program down our throats. Do not mistake this broadcast for anything other than Barry's intent to sway folks to his healthcare deathwagon. An infomercial for a ridiculous product, without the fun of the ShamWow guy.
NEWS FLASH! Next up on your nightly state run "news": GM announces they have exclusive rights to produce the new deathwagon models.
Man, so it has really come to this. An openly partial media for the man who took their power.
Hey Media Folks: Drink the Kool-Aid much?
Monday, June 15, 2009
President Barack Obama's health secretary on Sunday pushed for a new government-run healthcare program, an idea facing skepticism even in his own party, and a senior Senate Democrat flatly said votes are lacking in Congress for the proposal.
Oh my. Sometimes all you need is a toe-hold. This may be the opportunity we need.
Barry plays off his meddling in the private sector as good will to those who have none, playing on emotions of doing good for the less fortunate, but the fact is he has no idea what he is doing as evident by the financial fiascoes/guesses of the last few months. Or, he may have every idea as to what he is doing by dismantling what we know to be free enterprise. Whatev. At this point, all I know is we have an opportunity to lift out voices in opposition to socializing healthcare. We have an opportunity to raise our voices in opposition to stealing our monies to fund another bloated government run intrusion into the free market. There are ways to go about fixing healthcare (ask me, i got plenty of ideas. viable ideas) and anything the government puts forward should be loudly opposed.
Don't believe the nonsense floating around the state run media of Barry not wanting to disrupt the private insurance market. Look to the short time he has been in office and show me a decision that was made without double-speak and outright deception. He will say whatever he thinks it will take to sway people to expand government and the control that comes with it. He's looking to get government into every decision you make about your health. Wait, that was misstated: He wants the government to MAKE EVERY DECISION ABOUT YOUR HEALTH.
So warm up those phone lines my lovelies. Call and oppose. Write and oppose. We have a sliver of an opportunity. Let's show them we mean business when we tell them to stay out of ours.
This may be my favorite story of the day after the healthcare glimmer: Barry and Crew transferred four Guantanamo Bay inmates to Bermuda without telling British officials until the inmates had boarded their plane.
A British diplomat said: "The Foreign Secretary registered his surprise. It was a regrettable mistake. Bermuda, the UK and the US now need to work together to fix it and make sure it doesn't happen again."
The State Department denied it had bypassed Britain but admitted that it dealt directly with Bermuda, a territory under the sovereignty of the UK, which is responsible for foreign policy and security.It's called karma, Britain. You fawned all over Barry and Crew basically giving them the thumbs up to treat you as they see fit. Just like they do Americans. Because we voted for change, daggum it, and Barry and Crew are just giving us we voted for. See? That's how it works. That was their toe-hold. What makes you think you're special? What makes you think that what you see, isn't what you 'll get as well?
It's like teenagers who figure they'll do the deed first and once caught tell their folks it was a misunderstanding, that they'll do better next time.
Biden telling the American people what they have known all along:
No kidding, Joe. But let me fill you in on something you may not know: The American people don't believe a word coming out of your mouth. That you guys "guessed wrong" is no surprise. That you lump "everyone" into the package is insulting. Ask any person working a job, supporting their family, paying their bills, and they could have given you the head's-up that you guys are deluded.
On the up side, I love when you shoot off your mouth. Makes me happy to know some things remain the same, no matter how hard Barry tries to control the situation. Keep up the good work, bub.
At-mah-dinner-job won the election! Whoa. Wait. Maybe it was rigged. That's gotta suck for new bff's Barry and At. At says jump and Barry asks how high. Barry's been weakening America for the sake of resolving our differences with At. He's been bending over backwards to prove how wrong America (Bush! Can't quit ya!) has been in the past. He's been inviting At to talk as equals and now a hint of impropriety at the polls?! Say it ain't so At.
Yeah. Those are our major setbacks between our countries. Has nothing to do with At being a terrorist. Whoopsie. I meant a differently world-viewing person of violence and oppression.
To leave us all with the feeling that we can achieve the fantastical while wielding a small instrument of faith, I offer this: 14 year old discovers rare supernova using a small telescope.
Caroline was able to discover the object using a small telescope, but astronomers used some of the most advanced telescopes to determine the nature of the explosion.
Alex Filippenko, leader of the University of California, Berkeley supernova group, which monitors thousands of relatively nearby galaxies, says SN2008ha could have been a massive star suddenly collapsing to form a black hole.
"Coincidentally, the youngest person to ever discover a supernova found one of the most peculiar and interesting supernovae ever," remarked Filippenko. "This shows that no matter what your age, anyone can make a significant contribution to our understanding of the universe."

The Grand Old Party is suffering from low self-esteem. According to a new poll from Gallup, 38 percent of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents have an unfavorable opinion of their own party, compared with just 7 percent of Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents who have an unfavorable opinion of their party.
The article goes on to talk about image problems, and that's where my blood pressure spiked. ~helmets on~ It's not an image problem, it's a leadership problem. How often do we need to say it? When the Republicans return to the roots of their party: smaller government, getting the federal government out of the states business, reducing spending, then their constituents will follow in droves.
It isn't about image at all. It's about substance. It's about action. It's about following the will of the people who voted your behinds into office and not about getting to Washington and setting fire to the joint in a drunken frat party.
Focus Republican Party, FOCUS.
Run your office like ordinary Americans have to run our households. Don't try to spend your way out of debt. (that i even feel compelled to write that sentence pains me) Make sure the money you are spending gives a return. Trim the waste. Be accountable. Don't listen to or be cowed by intimidation from those who seek to diminish you. Do not let others define who you are or what you came to do. We define you; listen to us. Do the right thing and suffer the consequences.* Stand up for what needs to be done, not for what the other party tells you they want you to do. Time is short. For God's sake, STAND UP. Period. End of story.
Are you listening?
The party may be flailing internally, but the American people aren't. Regular Americans, everyday folks, are speaking in the plainest of language (Tea Party anyone?), begging the party to return to us in the form of their foundation and to build upon the examples of leaders gone by. Can't they see our yearning? Don't they understand what is waiting for them in the form of millions of Americans support? If they did, they would be giddy.
That they aren't listening is their undoing. We want a party that believes in a strong America, not just internally but around the world. We want a party of substance, by way of a solid voting record against big government. We want a party to do their job and then leave us the hell alone to live our lives.
If the Republicans aren't up for the supplying the American people with the leadership we are insisting on, perhaps we should do it ourselves. I am not a third-party kinda gal, but I need me some steely-eyed, take no prisoners, get this country back, get the government out of my business except to govern where necessary, take care of business kind of leadership. If it's not gonna be the Republicans, I'm looking elsewhere.
Image schmage. The problem is about leadership. Get it right.
Seriously, don't make me come up there.

Douche of the Day (new feature!): David Letterman and his non-apology tour.
Once again a libbie discounting their foul actions and playing it off as the right not having a sense of humor. Yes, we have no sense of humor when it comes to sexual jokes about an underage child. Dave tells us where he draws the line when it comes to a joke. More to the point: Hey Douche, here's where WE draw the line. ~clicking off~
Glimmer of Hope of the Day: The AMA is opposing Barry's government-cheese run health care program. Wait, do you hear that?! I think it's an angel's choir singing hallelujah! I know this may be a small crack in this steamrolling money-suck of a program, but let the opposition gain speed! Let us all holler along with the docs. NO GOVE'MENT CHEESE FOR ME!
I'm a Victim So I Deserve Stuff I Didn't Earn of the Day: Sonia SotoMAYor.
Judge Sonia Sotomayor once described herself as "a product of affirmative action" who was admitted to two Ivy League schools despite scoring lower on standardized tests than many classmates, which she attributed to "cultural biases" that are "built into testing."
Sadly, I wasn't surprised. Not about allowing her the chance to prove herself, nope I am agreeable to that. The part that didn't surprise me was when she made herself a false victim. Hey she's Latina, and everyone knows that Latinas are victims. ( I know some fierce Latinas that would kick my ass over that statement) That she still relies on it to move herself forward in her career is also not a surprise.
Freak-out of the Day: PANDEMIC!
"A move to level 6 is not a verdict on the severity of the virus," she said. "It simply means that the extent of global spread now fulfills the definition of a pandemic."
Oh. Well then. Nevermind. Get back to work. No one dying here....
Gay Drama of the Day: Sacha Cohen's movie Bruno is disturbing GLAAD.
"Some people in our community may like this movie, but many are not going to be OK with it," Rashad Robinson, senior director for the GAY AND LESBIAN ALLIANCE AGAINST DEFAMATION, tells the NEW YORK TIMES in a planned Sunday expose.
"Sacha Baron Cohen's well-meaning attempt at satire is problematic in many places and outright offensive in others."
Offensive? Nooooo, it's called humor. Hey libbies, why so mad? It's jokey jokey time. You thought Letterman and his jokes about Willow were hysterical. Then why not this? What? Cuts a little too close to home? His satire is harsh? Funny, to some, but not to you?
Golly gee, that seems problematic.
Wednesday, June 10, 2009
What do you think the response would be among the libs had he made the same joke about one of the Obama girls? My guess is that he'd have to hand over his desk and house band immediately.
I used to watch Letterman, but I'm done. He's lost his humor and has descended into the realm of douchebags. I even think he might be their new king.
Yet all is not lost. I found an unexpected ally in Jon Voight.
I imagine Hollywood is pooping themselves watching such a heavyweight actor as Jon come out of the political closet and diminish their god.
All I know is that I'm searching NetFlix for all the Voight movies I can find to put in my queue. Gotta support patriots whenever and wherever I can.

On the dark side it is filled with racism and threats and angry young Americans in Jerusalem talking smack about Barry. Ain't nobody talks smack better or with more vitriol than young drunk Americans.
On the lighter side, young drunks never fail to make me laugh at their stupidity.
My favorite line, here with the preface:
The interviewer goes on to ask:
Good to know she is as edumacated as she claims to be. I sense a shaming coming on.
SPECIAL NEWS BULLETIN: The coups within the United States of America have commenced. Prepare yourselves for high tech combat. Sound the alarms!
The following gave me a chuckle in that sad chuckley sort of way when you feel sorry for the overturned losers because they are such doofs. We have a saying in the South when you are a doof and we don't want you to know we know you're a doof: Bless your heart.
Hehe. The headline gave me a snicker, but the sentence below gave me a LOL!
During the coup, Democrats fled the chamber, turned out the lights, and cut off the Internet feed of chamber proceedings, leaving Republicans and their two Democratic friends to take the vote in the dark.
Fled! Turned out the lights! Cut the Internets (thanky Al Gore!)! Left in the dark!
What is this? The Backyard Adventures of The Bless Your Heart Gang?! I mean, where are the water balloons and the flaming poop-bag bombs?
File under D'UH! Europe swings right as depression deepens.
I know much will be written over this phenomenon, but the simple truth of the matter is this: Even atheists turn to God on their deathbed.
Ergo, even liberals turn to conservatism when faced with depression. Why? BECAUSE CONSERVATISM WILL NEVER FAIL YOU.
Yawn. Just now figuring this out Bronstein?
Bless your heart.
Dear Mr. Hassett,
Please be aware that this is tired news. Those of us paying attention, figured out months ago that Obama hates American businesses and he seeks to control as much as we, the American people, will allow.
Perhaps I can recommend some blog sites that could help you stay ahead of the mass media pack. While I commend your efforts, you are causing me to tsk-tsk your late-to-the-party observations (although they are spot on...yay, you!).
Bless your heart,
I say it as I see it. Some days I hit my target, some days I hear a faint bless your heart from the cheap seats. This next article isn't total vindication in the face of my naysayers when I have talked about Texas secession, but it did make me do an unexpectedly loud AH-HA! startling my mostly deaf cat:
Even though I am right smack-dab in the middle of Friday Night Lights country, this has nothing to do with high school football. It's about states' rights."What we have is a federal government that is exceeding its authority and blackmailing the states into submission through printed dollars,” said Pennsylvania Republican state Rep. Sam Rohrer. “We are trying to say to the federal government, ‘You have a role, but your role stops not too far outside Washington, D.C.’”

This thought sits within me, always present, seldom silent. It is like an unusual stone picked up along my daily travels, residing in my pocket, it's substantial weight felt, pressing on me physically and mentally. I pull it from my pocket frequently, understanding much time has passed in the making of its strength.
I show the stone I have found to any who ask. Some see just a stone, worn from the elements, thinking me daft for bothering. Others see beyond the stone, that my burden is worth carrying.
As I look and listen and speak about the day's political events, I am still certain that we, as a people, are moving closer to a tipping point of saying ENOUGH! to those who seek to thrust their power into our lives without our consent.
Yet, as we get ever closer to that point, I am also noticing a disturbing trend of fear in our government: What will they do next?! A fear of speaking our minds. (well, not here....) Fear of the future run by B. Hussein Obama (finally! we're allowed to use his Muslim name!!!) and what it might mean to any who speak their minds under his regime. Or, more to the point, what it might mean to those who write their minds.
Political dissent is an honored American tradition, not to mention the right of free speech. I have that right. You have that right. STILL. Even under B. H. Obama. Those who are in the position of power understand the people are watching (hence, closed door skulduggery), they know that those who oppose them will shout from rooftops (even as they try to dissuade). It's healthy for the republic. It keeps us honest. Dare I say, it keeps us safe. Yet, when the people of this country start to silence themselves in fear, we have a problem.
The revolution of our minds and hearts has started, as witnessed in the Tea Parties. May we avert the war by not censoring ourselves in fear. Stand in the company of those who took courage in their countryman; do not stand in fear, stand in unity.
EDIT: Holy Smokes, Batman! Will California lead us out of our spendulas mess? Or are they employing the ultimate Obama-voter scare tactics? Stay tuned.....na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na, BATMAN!!

"To this day, there are those who insist the Holocaust never happened," Obama said. "This place is the ultimate rebuke to such thoughts, a reminder of our duty to confront those who would tell lies about our history."
"He should make his own visit" to Buchenwald, Obama told NBC in an interview earlier Friday. He added: "I have no patience for people who would deny history."
Don't get me wrong. "At-mah-dinner-job" is pushing all our buttons when he denies the Holocaust, but I have no patience, nay tolerance, for B. Husein Obama (hey! check yesterday's psa...we're allowed to refer to his Muslim roots now) making statements like this when it is he who arrogantly denies history every time he dismisses the very Constitution he swore to uphold.
Just when he had me nodding in agreement as he took a firm and decisive stance aimed at "At-mah-dinner-job", just as I breathed a sign of relief knowing that finally there was something that we could agree upon, just as I dipped my toe into the brief lull of relieving my head from the wall, his mask slipped revealing the president I have come to see so clearly.
He is charming. I'll give him that. Occasionally, he eases even the best of us into a state of Yes, We Can!, if only for a moment, by offering something no sane person could argue with. He plays on your faith (the word "rebuke" was no accident). He plays on your humanity (talking about vigilance against evil). He plays on your sense of duty to the weak among us (confronting is key). Yet, if you pay close attention and listen with your ears and your brain, kick that squishy emotional heart to the curb, you catch a whiff of his insides.
All words; no meaning.
Although, I think the idea of being ever vigilant against the spread of evil in our time is advice we could all heed.
I'll end this entry with a health care article by Hugh Hewitt at Town Hall that I think is important to share. It is full of numbers to call and people to talk to about the upcoming health care fight, and it is shaping up to be a winnable fight. Let's keep the pain-train moving through phone calls and emails (yes, my American peeps CAN effect a difference through this option).
Pass the link along to those you know. Email friends. Let's put the hammer down and start our activist engines!

Please, we aren't idiots. There is no way in hell he is baggin' dog poop, unless it is a camera-ready moment to show his humanness, his I'm-just-like-you!, hogwash.
The 6000 word Speech heard 'round the world. ~retch~ Sorry. Had to dislodge my gag.
I offer my simplistic, most likely fictional yet amusing, take on the matter, now that we aren't a Christian nation anymore.
Bar is stuck in high school, where I suspect he was pants many times. Ooooowwwwie! That burns....can't we talk about this fellas? I sense he felt as if he didn't mesh completely with any one group as he struggled with his identity, as all kiddos do. Do I play football or golf? Do I join the math team or the acting troupe? Do I eat lunch on campus or go off? WHAT?! Desperate to belong, he choose to align with the mean kids, whom he confused with the cool kids as they were the ones terrorizing him. They have so much power, plus they wear really cool headgear. Barry was nothing if not a fast learner. He pledged his allegiance to them by supporting their causes with radical words and actions. Because he had a strong and intelligent mind, at times a charming demeanor and showed great promise for the future, his teachers allowed his contempt. They thought he would soon tire of bullying and right his course. Sadly, they would be hoodwinked many times. Their folly of believing in what they hoped, as opposed to reality became their undoing.
Bar became one of the strongest mean kids leader, willing to do what the rest of the mean kids had no stomach for. He did everything with such speed and arrogance that most were left stunned and speechless. The farther out in left field he hit, the remaining mean kids understood that they hit further to the right. The student body was aghast. As Bar became more and more The Mean Kid (The One is a natural progression from this), they felt outraged. Yet, they remained unmoved. They resigned themselves that high school would be over in 4 years and then they'd be free of his delusions.
And here we are today. Bar is stuck in high school continuing to do what he knows best. Making friends with the mean kids and screwing the student body as he does it.
Public Service Announcement:
Let it be known that from The Speech forward, all Americans are free to mention Bar's middle name AND his Muslim roots. The ban that was established during the campaign has now been lifted.
Dear Fearless Leader,
File under: Damned if you do, damned if you don't.
"We either live under the light of Islam or we die with dignity ... brace yourselves for a long war against the world's infidels and their agents," the militant leader said in an audio tape was posted on an Islamist website on Thursday.
B. Hussein Obama is gonna be pissed! Didn't Osama get his copy of The Speech?! Seriously, what is Osama thinking? Full and utter world domination?! Ruh-roh. Doesn't Osama know that WD is Obama's domain?
I smell a cage match between the two. No eye-gouging, no hidden bombs and no goats. Pay per view details to follow.

With that in mind, I present: Gut Says!
Let's start with an easy one.
* I see a triple layer cake on a kitchen counter:
Gut Says: I want some.
And now, so do you. But why? Did your gut just talk to you too? You don't even know what kind of cake this is. Maybe the person who baked it put ground up worms in it. Maybe it's made with dirt. Maybe it's poisonous. You don't want that cake.
WHAT?! You do? Exactly. Your gut just told you everything I tried to dissuade with was most likely wrong based on your experience. And you would be right. I made this cake myself a week ago and it is in mah belly! No worms. No dirt. No poison. Just deliciousness and my point made.
* Little Rock Shooting suspect joins growing list of Muslim converts accused of targeting U.S.
Gut Says: He's not the last. And yes, I know the newest headline of the day is that he didn't act alone, but what my gut says it goes beyond that. I believe we are entering a new phase of terrorism on our soil. These kinds of attacks will grow daily. We'll see them at the mall, the grocery stores, open markets, the movie theaters, restaurants. Terrorists are emboldened. They are here, waiting. They are living among us, watching us grow weaker under Barry and they have plans to kill as many of us as we will allow.
Michele Malkin hit the nail on the head today with this: When a right-wing Christian vigilante kills, millions of fingers pull the trigger. When a left-wing Muslim vigilante kills, he kills alone. These are the instantly ossifying narratives in the Sunday shooting death of Kansas late-term abortionist George Tiller versus the Monday shootings of two Arkansas military recruiters.
We are allowing the gate open to more blood spilled by ignoring the truth.
He is not the last.
*NBC news anchor bows before president?
Gut Says: Yes. After all, Barry considers himself Supreme Ruler and his believers call him things like The One.
* Ahmadinejad says Holocaust a "big deception"
Gut Says: Apart from Ahmadinejad's (loosely pronounced: At-mah-dinner-job*) delusion, this is a dude Barry wants to sit face to face with and convince that Americans aren't the bad guys anymore (we're sooooo sorry for Bush. can't you see how bent over we are in contrition?!). I don't know who is more delusional in this scenario. Bonus Gut Says: Barry.
* Bernanke warns deficits threaten financial stability
Gut Says: No frickin' kidding. (the gut used a particularly foul expletive, but i cleaned it up for you) They think we are morons. That we don't understand that the government must curtail spending. MUST. That we are on the road to disaster. By their hand, or ours if you count that we are letting them get away with this.
Do you think that they will curtail spending? Do you think they will return to fiscally responsibility while insisting that you do as they say and not as they do? Phhhhssssstttt.
“Either cuts in spending or increases in taxes will be necessary to stabilize the fiscal situation,” Bernanke said in response to a question. “The Federal Reserve will not monetize the debt.”
Hmmm, what path does your gut tell you they will choose?
* SotoMAYor critics just race-baiting
Gut Says: You can't be serious. Not only can you not be serious, surely (DON'T CALL ME SHIRLEY!) no one takes this seriously....discounting libs of course.
Considering the source of this headline, Jesse Jackson, makes it understandable. The following link has my red comments included:
But the assault on Sotomayor isn't about her skills as a jurist. (jesse, i strongly disagree, but continue) This is classic race-based politics from the Republican right.(um, she brought up the race issue with her her remarks) Our real problems are too great for us to fall back into this.(classic distracting technique used to pull in emotion instead of logic) The slurs reveal a lot more about those who are spreading them (jesse, i agree! but it's your girl who did the slurrin') than about Sonia Sotomayor, who will soon take her place on the Supreme Court where we can all (oh, boo, don't go including me in your "all") hope she will make a difference.(yes, but what kind of difference? a racial slurry, touchy feely, wanting southern states given to la raza sorta difference?)
* 77% of Georgia voters favor ID checks before voting, Justice Department disagrees.
Gut Says: This is most likely due to illegals voting. And illegals voting means someone is profiting from the action and has no intent on stopping it. But in order to get away with it, the Justice Department (Barry and Crew) will cloak their decision based on discrimination for minority groups.
The state of Georgia complains the latest Justice Department action will allow non-citizens to vote, but the Justice Department said the state’s system discriminated against minority voters.
Rasmussen also reports that 3 out of 4 voters think a person should be required to show ID before voting. Why would anyone who is there legally get bent out of shape about that? No ID, no vote. Will it get rid of fraud? No, but it will lessen the opportunity.
Like I said, I trust my gut.
* hat tip to that ding-batty gal on Jay Leno's Jay Walking segment and her amusing trick to remembering how to pronounce such an awkward name.

A) They both make inappropriate jokes about their guns.
B) They have mastered the stank eye.
C) They support gay marriage.
D) All of the above.
Dick supports gay marriage. The libs support gay marriage. Isn't it delicious? The horror they must feel that someone they despise, THE DEBIL HIMSELF!, is on their side of the issue. What do they do with that?! My guess is a case of the vapors.
Yet, who among their tribe glaringly doesn't support gay marriage?
B) The One
C) Barack H. Obama
D) All of the above
Oh man, this has got to be problematic for the libbies. I do loves me a sticky wicket, and this one puts a smile on my face every. single. time.
Badasses of the Day: Young Cons
Let the youth lead us!
There have been moments during this series that I have been brought to tears from the knowledge of their sacrifice. An entire nation, who had no idea if they would escape victorious from the powerful grip of the British Empire pushed aside fear and moved forward. The want of freedom prevailed in their hearts; the belief that they could overcome, whether they would or not, was enough. Their courage in the face of almost certain death and enormous physical struggle moves me today. To say I am grateful, to say I am in awe of the country's early patriots barely touches how I feel.
The struggle of freedom, once won, continues to this very day, to this hour, to this minute. I watch the series and I am transported to a time of much greater difficulty (WHAT?! No air conditioning?! BARBARIC!) and am even more thankful that they persevered. Communications took weeks or months. A fever could kill. Public transportation consisted of a wagon and a couple of horses. Their liquor/wine glasses were teeny-tiny, holding, what looked like, the equivalent of two shots (horrors!). And women, well let's just say I probably would have been jailed had I been born back in the day.
Throughout the John Adam series one thought returned to me: Are we as brave today?
Does our freedom still matter to us in deed as well as words? Would the people today sacrifice all in order to secure freedom for later generations, even if it meant they would not see the fruits of their labor? Is the concept of our forefathers to be free from tyranny too difficult to retain in this age of instant gratification? Have we become, as some accuse us, a soft and lazy nation of a people only concerned about what is immediately in front of us? Do we have it in us to be patriots, to stand our ground and raise our voices in the face of overwhelming opposition, to honor the blood sacrifice of our hard won freedom, yet harder kept?
Do we have it in us still? I want to believe the majority of my fellow citizens are capable of such sacrifice, but my truthful answer is that I do not know. More importantly, I pray I never have to know.
