The worst of liberalness

Alexandra Pelosi and Bill just have to dedicate about 5 minutes of your life to this.

Imagine?  He thinks that, because Pelosi's daughter did a video showing welfare "queens" (as it's called on the video), Cable Channel FOX's 'head will explode' because Lefties had the guts to tell the truth.  Okay, yes, I can imagine many conservatives' heads exploding with THAT realization, but watch and see where he goes with that.......   Are they kidding?
Pelosi suggests that because welfare is getting so huge, 'we're losing Democrats' because they don't like supporting people who won't work.  (GEE, YA THINK?  We can only HOPE they're waking up to what conservatives have felt for years)
Maher says he can't be a racist because he gave a million to the Obama campaign (you can't make this stuff up, can you?)
By the way, have you heard anybody lately say "The South will rise again," as Maher says people do? WHAT?
This is a fun video if you haven't just eaten because it confirms Maher's foul-mouthed, loathsome and withering disdain for anybody who doesn't think like he does, and Pelosi's fear as she finally realizes some Americans actually are AGAINST helping bums who haven't worked in "half a decade".
Oh, you just have to watch this!
Let me know what you think.

My Fellow Barack Obama

Good evening.  First, let me address you regarding the Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman case; I want to apologize for having interjected any opinion before the facts were known.   I did that with the Harvard professor case, too, and I guess I didn't learn my lesson.   But, I come before you today not so much to apologize but to ask something of you.

Trayvon was a young black male whose early pictures, which the media used instead of his older, more negative-appearing ones, show a handsome young boy who seems nice, clean cute, with a great future.  The later ones show a kid who might be veering off that great future's path.    I'm hoping the difference in photos wakes a lot of us up to our kids' futures.

I have to admit the Conservatives got it right when they blogged on this case;  particularly Z, whose blog I read every morning before my day starts ....She said something that will stick with me "Conservatives think ALL children deserve people marching in the streets when they're killed, we don't care what color the child is, they all count."

I feel that way, too, but I haven't always shown it.  I mentioned that Trayvon looks like me and, as Z pointed out here at her blog, he really doesn't so much.  I used a dumb sentiment to make a dumb point, didn't I.  I'm so sorry.   Trayvon shouldn't have been killed, but neither should that little baby who died when gangs shot 37 bullets into her house and she was killed just lying on her family sofa.  A white boy had 16 yr old Black guys douse him with oil and set him on fire.   All of this has to stop.

I'm half black and half white.  I have not worked toward uniting this country as I'd hoped I might.  After Michelle made that ridiculous comment about not feeling proud of America till I was voted for, some white Americans felt a little nervous and I can't blame them.  I've done little to ease that nervousness, that uneasiness.  I'm doing that now.

I call on all Americans, black or white, to wake up and spend more time with their children.   I want schools to be able to teach more and have to discipline less. Parents, it's UP TO YOU.   I mean it, man...this is nuts.   The founding fathers of this great country didn't expect teens of any color to be dying on a daily basis at the hands of other teens.  They raised children who loved America and wanted to promote a good future for her, celebrating good manners instead of scoffing manners them like we do today, encouraging education instead of making kids feel like geeks if they get good grades.

Grades are where it's at, folks!  We want to hire Americans, not the more brilliant Asian and Indian immigrants who come here.  We're glad for those legal immigrants, but since when weren't Americans well enough educated to do the jobs these immigrants are doing?  What's that about?

Listen up, parents.  Your kids are your most precious asset and America's future.  Spend time with them, poor or rich, spend time with your kids and they will be rich in something much better than money.  Encourage them to do well!  I know that my views have sounded in the past like kids shouldn't do well because all they'd be doin' if they did do well is payin' their neighbors' bills, health care, etc.,  but that's stopping, too.   I've decided to become a Conservative, capitalist-pig who loves God and country and I want our kids to stop killing each other.  We need every one of them for our future.

Parents, do your best.  America's counting on you.  Trayvon Martin's death should count for something.  He could have been home doing homework, at a church group, at the library....but he wasn't.  And he's dead now.  George Zimmerman wouldn't have had to be walking the streets trying to keep them safe for his neighbors if that neighborhood hadn't had burglaries, now he's in big trouble.  This all has to stop.

God bless America, and good night.

(by Barack Hussein Obama)

Major Hasan and Staff Sgt Bales.... have you realized this?

I got this email and thought it worthy of discussion.......I find it fascinating, appalling, name it.  How about you?  Z

They're already talking about the death sentence, or a long prison term, for the guy who shot up Afghanistan civilians, never mind his having suffered a traumatic brain injury.

Yet this Major Hasan, who shot up Fort Hood while screaming Allah
akbar, still hasn't stood trial, and they are still debating whether
he was insane, even with the clear evidence regarding his motive:
slay as many infidels as possible.  So we have a guy in a war zone
who cracks, and he must be executed immediately.

But this Muslim psychiatrist who was stateside in a nice safe
office all day murders 13, wounds 29 of our own guys, and they try to
argue the poor lad suffered post-traumatic stress syndrome, from
listening to real soldiers who had actual battle experience.  Two and
a half years later, they still haven't tried the murderous muslim.

University Leftwing Indoctrination...from a professor

This is from a professor friend of mine....I'd asked him a question and responded, and he wrote this back:

Oh, yeah, I know.  It's too bad, but completely understandable.  You cannot exist in academia and NOT be a screamin' liberal.  It's part of the air they breathe.  One of the brightest and most articulate conservatives at  XXXX (a excellent university), an historian, was universally dismissed as a fascist or proto-Nazi--both officially in campus news outlets and in daily conversation around every lunch table.  Universities have become the most politically indoctrinatory environments that one could possibly imagine.  The group-think pressure to conform is enormous; to do otherwise is to risk your career and to alienate your closest colleagues.

I think we all know this, but it really does break your heart and spirit to think how one-sided academia has become.  To think it's the left (and I can't even say wingnuts because it's most of them) which calls itself open minded and then to constantly hear what we hear and read comments like the one above, from someone who spent 40 years as a professor in a very good university, is amazing.  And telling.   The professor who emailed me is highly intelligent and conservative....he'd have known a true fascist or "proto-Nazi" in a heartbeat and condemned him, so I know the talk about the history professor was just kick back because he had the nerve to be conservative, that's all.

Still, we'll get comments here that my friend is wrong :-)...  why he'd lie is another thing, but 'he's wrong!'....Or, we'll get no comments, which is usually the case here when we present proof , even anecdotal, that nobody can just write off.

Think this could ever change?  Will kids ever be able to learn all ways of thinking, all information, or be able to respond with their own opinions without having to write papers backing up the prof's liberal viewpoints?  Any chance!?  And how?

Abraham Lincoln once wrote this "The philosophy of the school room in one generation will be the philosophy of the government in the next."   We have certainly come to learn he was a prophet, haven't we.


FOX NEWS, not Al Qaeda's preference

David Ignatius wrote an article about Al Qaeda and the plot to kill Obama....HERE is the link.
In this link, I found the following thoughts of Bin Laden's media guy, the American Al Qaeda creep, Adam Gadahn:

“It should be sent for example to ABC, CBS, NBC, and CNN and maybe PBS and VOA. As for Fox News let her die in her anger,” Gadahn wrote. At another point, he said of the networks: “From a professional point of view, they are all on one level — except [Fox News] channel, which falls into the abyss as you know, and lacks objectivity, too.” 
Ignatius adds:

"What an unintended boost for Fox, which can now boast that it is al-Qaeda’s least favorite network."

One can only imagine what Al Qaeda would look on as 'objectivity' :-)  As one who's probably overly interested in how the media portrays the news, I thought this was fascinating.

Travyon's mother ... trademarks??! you think the Mom's doing this for financial gain or is afraid others would get this trademark and take advantage?  z

Mother Seeks Trayvon Martin Trademarks

Records: Late teenager's kin filed pair of applications last week

MARCH 26--The mother of Trayvon Martin has filed two applications to secure trademarks containing her late son’s name, records show.
Sabrina Fulton is seeking marks for the phrases “I Am Trayvon” and “Justice for Trayvon,” according to filings made last week with the United States Patent and Trademark Office. In both instances, Fulton is seeking the trademarks for use on “Digital materials, namely, CDs and DVDs featuring Trayvon Martin,” and other products.
The March 21 USPTO applications, each of which cost $325, were filed by an Orlando, Florida law firm representing Fulton.
Martin, 17, was shot to death last month during a confrontation with George Zimmerman, a 28-year-old neighborhood watch captain. Martin, pictured above, was visiting his father’s home in Sanford, Florida when he was shot to death by Zimmerman, who has claimed that he was acting in self-defense.

Obama and Trayvon Martin

I read THIS ARTICLE about Obama's remarks which include  ".....comparing the boy to a son he doesn't have and calling for American "soul searching" over how the incident occurred."    His words made me wonder about something I've thought over the last few years.

There have been so many Black on Black killings by kids in Chicago, L.A., and many other cities over the last 3 1/2 years of his presidency and he's not spoken out as far as I can find.  I've often wondered why he wouldn't use those as 'teaching moments', times he could ask all kids to to leave gangs, to do better in school, to not put themselves in positions like this, etc.   But, he used this Hispanic/White "versus" Black killing so poignantly, saying this kid could be the son he never had.  Why this situation and not others?

There are so many more Black/Black killings than Hispanic/White killings......I so wish he'd appear more even handed and that he'd try much harder to get particularly Black kids off the streets, away from weapons, encouraging them to do well in school (as his own son would presumably have done), etc. etc.

Is this a teaching moment he missed and is he doing a little (may I say) race baiting viz. this take on the killing in Florida?    What's your take?  Am I off base?

As a friend emailed, then people take to the streets in hoodies, though it's now come to be known as gang attire and maybe what provoked Trayvon's death............wassup?  Good idea?

Psalm 33:12-22

New International Version (NIV)
 12 Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD,
   the people he chose for his inheritance
13 From heaven the LORD looks down
   and sees all mankind;
14 from his dwelling place he watches
   all who live on earth—
15 he who forms the hearts of all,
   who considers everything they do.

 16 No king is saved by the size of his army;
   no warrior escapes by his great strength.
17 A horse is a vain hope for deliverance;
   despite all its great strength it cannot save.
18 But the eyes of the LORD are on those who fear him,
   on those whose hope is in his unfailing love,
19 to deliver them from death
   and keep them alive in famine.

 20 We wait in hope for the LORD;
   he is our help and our shield.
21 In him our hearts rejoice,
   for we trust in his holy name.
22 May your unfailing love be with us, LORD,
   even as we put our hope in you

I sure can't add anything to that.   Have a blessed Sunday, friends.

Please pray for Dick Cheney...that the new heart that was transplanted today does really well. 
Maybe Yahoo will even have a headline about this soon.........they haven't yet. :-) Don't forget, he was a REPUBLICAN VP.... also sad that I have to block comments on this post for obvious reasons.z


How cute are THOSE?   Kind of reminded me of Easter coming with the little chick, etc.......Isn't it cute?   have a great Saturday.......I'm sick of the political fighting and am taking a break today.....maybe longer.

Radicalized or not?

From THIS article on the Toulouse, France killings:

(to the left is very pretty 8 yr old Miriam Monsonego, the daughter of the principal of the Jewish school....the killer cornered her and put a gun to her head and shot)

"French president Nicolas Sarkozy called for unity in France Thursday following the dramatic shootout that killed Toulouse gunman Mohamed Merah after a 32-hour standoff. Merah, a 23-year-old Frenchman of Algerian descent, had admitted Wednesday to negotiators that he had killed three children and their teacher and three French paratroopers, prosecutors said. And indeed, they said they found videotapes he had made of the killings in his apartment.
But French officials were facing sharp questions in the wake of the Toulouse killing spree, in particular about why they had failed to close in on Merah earlier.
The 23-year-old Toulouse mechanic had traveled to Afghanistan and Pakistan at least twice, most recently in 2011. He claimed to have trained in jihadi camps in Waziristan, according to French prosecutors Thursday, who said he had also proclaimed allegiance to al-Qaida. Merah was also well-known to Toulouse law enforcement, having been convicted on numerous nonterrorism related crimes, like purse snatching, for which he served a year in prison. Indeed, his attorney reportedly said this week that at their last meeting a couple months ago, he had advised Merah to be on his best behavior because he had recently returned from Afghanistan and would be on the police's radar. (Merah had been picked up for driving without a license.)
"That is one of the big questions people in France are asking coming out of this," Christophe Bauer, a producer at French broadcaster France 24, told Yahoo News Thursday. "There's a sense he just came back from Afghanistan. French officials said they had been tracking him. But what does that tracking mean? Apparently, the French intelligence services in Toulouse talked to him when he got back from Afghanistan."

I hadn't followed this closely and thought he'd gone into a Jewish school or something and started shooting but he apparently had these poor victims, including 3 children, in his apartment and videotaped their killings.  This is unspeakable horror that's hard to grapple with, isn't it."

SO...what do we do?  This is a perfect example of why so many in Western society are justifiably on guard of Muslims.  Yet, we hear so many remind us that not all Muslims are terrorists as if any of us thought that was a palm to forehead revelation?     Here we go:

-he is a Muslim
-he was in Afghanistan at least twice. (have we closed any of those camps down yet?)
-he was in Pakistan at least twice.
-he claims to have studied jihad in Waziristan
-he's proclaimed allegiance to Al Qaeda
-French intel had been tracking him, they'd spoken to him upon his return from Afghanistan.


-what can they ask during intel interrogation?
-how can you tell if someone's lying?  Think he'll tell the truth?
-had he sworn Al Qaeda allegiance at those encounters with French terrorism experts?
-are people afraid to do anything because he's a muslim?

Do you think we're any different than the French are?    Trust me, I lived there, and they can ask a LOT more than we can, and take steps our citizens would find go against our liberties.  And THEY MISSED IT.

Now we'll have liberals suggest he's a 'one off' nut..."there you go again blaming all Muslims..."

Do you see that there's nothing we can do?  Does anybody see why some Americans and Europeans say "We can't take any more in, they can't be trusted?"   How WILL we know enough to stop killings like this...or FAR FAR more awful?

What a hideous situation islam has put us in. Not US, them.  All of them?  Some of you think so.  I do not.  But, it doesn't matter.  One lone crazed muslim killed a little eight year old blonde girl  by shooting her in the head.   That's enough.

Pretty neat T Shirt ...and more

That's clever, isn't it?  I thought it was cute.   Then I saw the following and it's SO NOT CUTE:

Look at THIS ABSOLUTELY DISGUSTING THING. The people who are saying this isn't racist are MORONS.    Let's remember folks, these people don't represent US just because they don't admire Obama, ....any more than Rush Limbaugh is "The figurative head of the Republican Party," which I'm seeing is the new catch phrase from the White House's amazing PR folks.    This is clever, but it's RACIST and HORRID and let's not forget the Left can do anything they like, we have to be more careful.   STOP this kind of thing when you see it.  We don't need this, the country doesn't need this. 

Then there's THIS...........OBAMA LIPSTICK AND iPhones?   Is this a joke?  And will it only be bought by teeny boppers who LOOOOVE THEIR COOL GUY and could it turn off mature voters?

(but that T Shirt IS cute, don't you think?)

Facebook...and JOBS?

Have you seen THIS?   Do you think a potential employer has the right to ask for a job applicant's Facebook PASSWORD?  

I'll weigh in after you do.......

"Is our country ready for a WHITE FIRST LADY?"

Robert De Niro told an Obama crowd of about 90 people that it was "too soon" for a white first lady.  The comment was made Monday night at a reception in New York City that was hosted by De Niro and his wife, and attended by First Lady Michelle Obama.
"Callista Gingrich. Karen Santorum. Ann Romney. Now do you really think our country is ready for a white First Lady?" De Niro asked, according to a pool report from the fundraiser.

All that came from THIS ARTICLE...Gingrich says it's inexcusable for De Niro to have said this.  The statement was made at an Obama fundraiser...think Obama will apologize for De Niro?  Gingrich wants him to.   I don't.  Obama probably didn't know he'd say something that stupid.  Let De Niro be held accountable (ya, that'll happen!!).

I ask you more than that:   WHAT DO YOU THINK WOULD HAVE HAPPENED HAD A REPUBLICAN SAID "Now do you really think our country is ready for a black First Lady?"    

Ya, that's what I think, too, folks.

Obama speaks to the Iranians on their Persian holiday?

Did you see THIS?    Oddly,  the author of the article says "The traditional presidential message came amid concerns that the tense standoff over Iran's suspect nuclear program could turn into a military confrontation and with another round of painful international sanctions set to bite more deeply into the Islamic republic's economy."     Interesting that it's on Persian New Year, Norwuz?  The good thing about that is that Islamic hardliners don't like the celebration because it's "pre islamic"....but it is considered as big a deal as our New Year's, or maybe more, to most Iranians, apparently.

Could anybody link where Clinton or Bush gave a traditional presidential message to the Iranian people?  That made me really curious. 

Or is this all trying to defend himself against Americans (and the Iranian freedom fighters)  who felt he let the Iranian people down in the last populace Iranian uprising, remember?  They reached out to us and Obama didn't do anything and he's getting criticized for it?  Or is this about sanctions and he feels so badly for the people it's another "apology tour"?

Is this just more "going' to church for the Obamas", if you know what I mean?

What do you think?  Do you remember any sitting president giving a 'traditional' presidential message or is that word thrown in in the author's hopes we'll all just believe every American president's done it?  :-) the way, America..."Happy Nowruz" from our president.

On Romney.... please weigh in

An acquaintance of mine emailed this to me...Her husband has researched Romney very diligently and read his books and she wrote the information below from what he's told her in response to this POST where I "spoke for Romney":

It (Romney Care) affected only 8% of the  state population and these people were using the emergency room which drives all healthcare costs up drastically. They had no healthcare and democrats saw nothing wrong with what they were doing.  Everyone else kept their current private healthcare and these people were given a private insurance plan with basic services.  It ended up saving Mass. money but the next governor was a democrat who enhanced the plan to include 'nice to have stuff' since it was at taxpayer expense. I agree with Z that Romney should say deliver the speech she wrote for him.  He is a numbers guy who finished in the top 5th of his class at Harvard magna cum laude with two degrees; MBA and a law degree at the same time. He gave away all his inherited money to charity and mostly to Brigham Young University to establish  the George W. Romney Institute of Public Management,  he took no salary while governor of the state.  He doesn't have the charisma of many politicians, but he is a smart man on merit. Unlike Obama who gets the "brilliant" title based on heresay by the media alone, certainly not on results, and we still have no idea what grades he got.   I do believe if Romney is the last man standing he will make a good president who will govern more conservatively than he could in liberal Mass. surrounded by democrats.  

I think he didn't take a salary either when the Olympics fell apart due to corruption and he was called to save the games. Yes he asked for earmarks from the feds but the majority of that was for security purposes which came after 9/11.  Because the Olympics - is a world wide event the feds usually contribute some amount of money to all Olympics but security after the attack became extensive and expensive.
I think this information and conclusion is worthy of consideration.   What do you think?

Obama's only a little grayer........please vote for him!

I wish ONE of the Republican candidates had ANYBODY able to nail what people want to hear as well as Obama's people;

"I know I'm a little grayer now and it's not as trendy to be an Obama supporter, because it's not as fresh," he told donors at actor and director Tyler Perry's estate in Atlanta on Friday.
"And so I hope that you are game to work just as hard, if not harder, in the coming months to make sure we finish what we began," said the president, who has stepped up the pace of his fundraising."

Z: That's exactly what we've all been thinking...he's not as 'fresh', he's not done so well.... maybe many who couldn't wait to vote for him last time, the hugely pivotal time of finally electing a Black president, won't care so much this time.  But, he puts this in such clever ways...he's 'a little grayer now' (sympathy vote), he's 'not finished'...just what unthinking Americans want as their reminder to vote...after they've sent in the MONEY. (he raised $45 million just in February, including at 2 events in Chicago and 3 in Atlanta within almost 2 days...not bad!)

There's Tyler Perry, convicted Christian, by the way, supporting a man who, as state senator, voted four times to prevent the revival of any baby who survived a botched abortion.   Life can be fascinating. 


US Resources and Obama's Control... What do you think?

Obama's Recent Executive Order

Read it and weep: "President Obama signs Executive Order allowing for control over all US resources."

On March 16th, President Obama signed a new Executive Order which expands upon a prior order issued in 1950 for Disaster Preparedness, and gives the office of the President complete control over all the resources in the United States in times of war or emergency.

The National Defense Resources Preparedness order gives the Executive Branch the power to control and allocate energy, production, transportation, food, and even water resources by decree under the auspices of national defense and national security. The order is not limited to wartime implementation, as one of the order's functions includes the command and control of resources in peacetime determinations....

I have no idea what to think about this, really, but I have received the information above, in various forms, approximately twelve times from different friends in the last day or so.    People are concerned.  The Lefties will comment that everybody's being ridiculous and this is no new story;  except it apparently is.  I wonder what they'd say had Bush done this?

The Obama Family Goes to Church

The Obama's attended church today.... I think he's gone about eight times (other than Camp David's chapel, which he says he visits when they're there) since he was inaugurated now, isn't it?  He can't go regularly  "because the security would just be too much," according to him, remember?  And, it's generally been a Black church.......but not this time.  Cool that security allowed them to walk through Lafayette Park today to get there.  Ronald Reagan regularly attended Bel Air Presbyterian Church in Los Angeles when he was here at his L.A. home, but I suppose things are even tougher, security-wise, since 9/11.

I don't personally give a hoot if he goes or where he goes, that's a very personal thing...and I'd imagine it felt really good to a family as cloistered as an American president's to be able to take a short walk like they are in my image, even though security probably swarmed around them.  Well...I hope he got a lot from the service and hope they make it a regular thing since they had so specifically talked about finding a church home.

Campaigning brings all kinds of good things up in us, doesn't it?  ("Say Hallelujiah!")


Sunday Faith Blog

"The 'grass is only greener' because somebody over there is watering it........"  I just heard that quote and loved it.  It probably didn't start as anything to do with faith, but I think it does.  The people I know who have strong Christian faith are happier; they go through difficult challenges with better humor, they have friends of similar strengths to lean on, they oftentimes have a church family that helps, etc.

It's easy to say "the grass is always greener....over there" but it isn't if you're watering your own faith garden.

"And the LORD shall guide thee continually, and satisfy thy soul in drought, and make fat thy bones: and thou shalt be like a watered garden, and like a spring of water, whose waters fail not."  Isaiah 58:11

Water your garden!

and please pray for Susie Breitbart.

The Battle of Athens....voter fraud

Have you ever heard of The Battle of Athens?  I sure hadn't.   A friend sent me the video below and I Googled about it...HERE is some information.   Check out this video (I think it's almost thirteen minutes, so feel free to fast forward a little here and'll get the gist of it).

The mayor's family, big Democrats in an otherwise mostly Republican small town, held sway over the place for years, to the point that he and his thugs wanted to count ballots in private when the law said you couldn't.  Veterans who'd just returned from WWII were horrified and got guns and threatened to shoot the building up if they didn't bring the ballot boxes out.  Well, they didn't, so there was gunfire... Finally, the Cantrell gang gave up.  The next morning, the guns were returned to the city armory, cleaner than they'd been before.  And the town was clean again.  In more ways than one.

Just thought you might be interested.  It fascinated me.

Strategic Oil Reserve...did you know we're depleting it??

WAIT till you see THIS POST at our friend Bunkerville's blog...........Make sure you read the CNN part, it looks a little like two posts for the headline size but it's not. Could a president do something this questionable just for reelection? (is it ME asking this question? Even I think this is so deplorable it can't be true) Obama's already taken millions of barrels and not returned it and he wants to take more now.I could go on and on, but Bunkerville's post says it all. 
PLEASE CHECK IT's very important information.

Gas Price Hypocrisy from the left

Please, please watch this least a few minutes (you won't want to turn it off and it's not that long at all).   The hypocrisy is breath taking...and please send it to friends/family.    Imagine how Bush was treated by the Left when gas prices were $1.87 per gallon?  Such insults.   And now?    You'll see media stories where "rising gas prices are a GOOD THING!"   "There are reasons to be optimistic, people's lives have been saved from high gas prices"   Check it out:

Remember Pelosi and Hillary's lines next time you pump gas for yourself.  And Obama's "ever so hilarious feeling of our pain" while he was running for president.

 (thanks, Mustang)

Are the Democrats at the DNC in Florida THIS insensitive and unthinking and sycophantic?
Need I ask your thoughts on this?   It's gone now....veterans threatened to take it down themselves, so the DNC took it down.   I have to give credit to Huffington Post as they're the only liberal venue I could find that even mentioned it.  FOX had it,  The Christian Post had it, WebProNews had it...not sure what the last two are, but I'm waiting for a liberal to say it's not true because FOX carried it.  Actually, Huff Post's piece quotes from FOX, so Huff did get it right :-)   Is it an important story?  Not so much; does it tell us something all Americans might want to know?  Yes, I think so.

The Huffington Post piece includes " notes that party Chairwoman Nancy Hurlbert apologized to the veterans, but made no promise that this would be the flag's last appearance. The Obama product has been sold since 2008 by a Seattle company called " and...

"The Orlando Sentinel dug into the legal side of the issue, speaking to a local college professor who said that altering an American flag doesn't constitute a crime. The newspaper mentions how cases involving flag burning have been deemed by the Supreme Court as protected under the First Amendment's free speech clause"

Imagine DNC Chairwoman apologizing but not promising it won't happen again?  Any thoughts?  Does legal make it okay?


Ogallala....already full of pipelines!

Anybody who worries about Keystone doing the Ogallala area in, needs to see that there are many, many pipelines running around the Ogallala already.   But environmentalists consider The Keystone a problem because it's.....a pipeline.  Or is it about something else?     HERE is a Republican senator with a good idea of moving the Keystone pipeline slightly more Eastward, yet the Senate voted it DOWN again.    Can it be that there's no way to get oil down through the United States?  Of course not! Or is this all about some agenda we need to wake up to?  And quick.  There was talk ten years ago about pipelines and oils refineries, and everybody said "That's not going to help NOW, it won't be ready for TEN YEARS!"  Yes, and here we are ten years later and we didn't do it and we have nothing.  When we could have.

What do you think?  I hope the links help form an opinion;  doing this post and finding the link information was extremely helpful to me and I've followed this fairly closely.

Is this really about the environment?  Could Obama lose union votes because even they're ticked off (see last link) that they're going to lose so many potential jobs if he doesn't go along with it?  

Ogallala has tons of pipelines all around it even NOW........ I wish Americans knew this.
thanks to my friend Canadian Steve for the link and the inspiration.

Too clever to resist...enjoy!

Let me add that I just listened to a video HERE where a TV station's news readers are discussing Hollywood types who are supporting Republicans.  Do you know what the guy said at the end of his report?   I am still laughing!   Talk about misleading and a blatant LIE.   He said "Yes, Lady Gaga's endorsement is worth MILLIONS to Obama's campaign...which can counter the money the Republicans are raising!"    By the way, listen to the bias in the three young news readers...really funny.

Do they really not KNOW that Obama's pockets are ENORMOUSLY deeper than the Republicans'?  He thinks Lady Gaga's free endorsement might help poor little Obama because he needs freebies to fight the very rich Republicans?   Is that hilarious!?


A fired Christian Conservative.........what do you think?

LOS ANGELES (AP) — A computer specialist at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory is going to court over allegations that he was wrongfully terminated because of his belief in intelligent design.
Opening statements in the lawsuit by David Coppedge were expected to start Tuesday morning in Los Angeles Superior Court after lawyers spent Monday arguing several pretrial motions.
Coppedge, who worked as a team lead on the Cassini mission exploring Saturn and its many moons, claims he was discriminated against because he engaged his co-workers in conversations about intelligent design and handed out DVDs on the idea while at work.
Intelligent design is the belief that a higher power must have had a hand in creation because life is too complex to have developed through evolution alone.
Coppedge lost his team lead title in 2009 and was let go last year after 15 years on the mission.
In an emailed statement, JPL dismissed Coppedge's claims. In court papers, lawyers for the California Institute of Technology, which manages JPL for NASA, said Coppedge received a written warning because his co-workers complained of harassment.
They also said Coppedge lost his team lead status because of ongoing conflicts with others.
Caltech lawyers contend Coppedge was one of two Cassini technicians and among 246 JPL employees let go last year due to planned budget cuts.
The case has generated interest among supporters of intelligent design. The Alliance Defense Fund, a Christian civil rights group, and the Discovery Institute, a proponent of intelligent design, are both supporting Coppedge's case.
The National Center for Science Education, which rejects intelligent design as thinly veiled creationism, is also watching the case and has posted all the legal filings on its website.
Coppedge's attorney, William Becker, contends his client was singled out by his bosses because they perceived his belief in intelligent design to be religious. Coppedge had a reputation around JPL as an evangelical Christian, and interactions with co-workers led some to label him as a Christian conservative, Becker said.
In the lawsuit, Coppedge says he believes other things also led to his demotion, including his support for a state ballot measure that sought to define marriage as limited to heterosexual couples and his request to rename the annual holiday party a Christmas party.
Coppedge is seeking attorney's fees and costs, damages for wrongful termination and a statement from the judge that his rights were violated, said Becker."  (end of article)

We'll probably never hear the end of this lawsuit and I suppose this man's staff can say all they want against him.  Gee, fancy wanting a holiday party at Christmas time to be called a Christmas Party.  My Jewish friends loved the Christmas Party and find it hilarious that the name's changed...yours, too, I'll bet.

I suppose a DVD on Intelligent Design could be a threat to secularists.......I'd have hoped they'd just trash it if they didn't want to watch it, and even watch it to see what's up.    If he hammered them, he should be gone, but do you think he did?  He'd been there 15 years!  Today, it seems it's poison to admit you're:

A. Christian
B. Open Minded
C. Conservative
D. Believe in open discussion

Think he'll win?

Afghanistan, the koran and murder

I was just thinking about the outrage and retaliation murders put on Americans because of the accidental burning of some korans in Afghanistan and how the MURDER of 16 Afghans by one American soldier hasn't created any outrage or retaliation.  
I got to wondering about a people who'd be less outraged at murder of innocent civilians than the koran situation.

Funny, I keep typing koran without a capital K and the computer doesn't like it;  it's been programmed to give it the more respectful capital K.   So, I typed bible and got no red squiggly line under it.  bible can be typed with a less respectful lower case b, NO PROBLEM.   

what a world.


Keystone Pipeline Route...are you affected?

I was wondering if any of my readers' states would be affected by any of the 4 Phases of the Keystone Pipepline project and what you hear in your states about it?  Negative?  Positive?  

HERE is an overview of Keystone, describing the pipeline's progress and, something leftwingers try to obfuscate, the refineries built in conjunction.

Seems to me that the first phase is (surprise!) our President's "home" state of Illinois.......then it goes on to Phases 2-4, which will include the states of S. Dakota, Montana, Missouri, Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas...

Do those of you living in any of those states hear scuttlebutt we don't hear?  Thanks for any information.

The Swiss...

Well, my goodness!  A country whose people put the country before themselves...who knew? If you read THIS, YOU will !
Yup..the Swiss voted down a measure today which would have allowed SIX WEEKS PAID VACATION because experts said it would hurt the economy in many ways.  I'm stunned.  How about you? :-)


Sunday Faith Blog..........unbelievable story

Please read THIS blog today.   It's about a young woman I'm lucky enough to know a little. 
Click on MY STORY, top left,  when you're there, but you still won't know the half of it.   Please click on other 'blue circles' at the top of MY STORY and you'll see so much inspiration!  She says "If you are not a believer, I would encourage you to read and see how I have responded in faith to what could have turned me away from my faith, but instead, has made it stronger.  Read on to see how I choose Him EVEN AFTER this."   And, believe me, 'Even after THIS' will blow your mind.  Katherine is one of the absolutely most gorgeous girls I've ever seen (wait till you see pictures of her and realize that though nerves had to be cut, and her face isn't the same, she's still really beautiful) and, in April of 2008, with her first child only six months old and taking a nap, she fell to her knees in the kitchen, her hands went numb, she became nauseated and had suffered from a terrible stroke to the brain.

Her blog is called HOPE HEALS.   Please send it to anyone who's doubting God since they became ill.  Please send it to anyone who just wants to read a touching story of faith.  Katherine, in spite of all she's gone through (almost 3 years of surgeries, recoveries, PT, which she still has) feels she is utterly blessed.    As she says "we are all too blessed to feel bitter."   She can't walk without a cane, she has a young, active son who she can't run after, she can't swallow certain things, half of her face dropped forever from the original surgery, but she feels blessed because she's always believed in Christ and has had too many miracles happen since she fell to the kitchen floor to believe anything else. 
The first miracle happened because her husband had left  but suddenly remembered he'd forgotten some papers and, just as Katherine was wondering how the heck she could reach a phone and call for help, he walked in and found her.  Another of the miracles was that the ambulance which got her to the hospital was turned away because she was nearly dead, too nearly dead to treat.  When they got to UCLA, a doctor took 10 minutes to decide whether he'd try.  And he did.  And she lived.  An aside is that Gabrielle Giffords' husband honored Katherine and Jay Wolf for their courage and so much more.

I hope you honor her by reading her story and even more honor her by remembering what Katherine says
" Faith heals.

Romans 8: 
"All things work for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose."   Katherine believes so much in this verse and it's so clear that she's answered his call, his purpose, in reaching out to others as she does.

Have a great Sunday....

Obama; Keystone Kop?

What do YOU think of the Keystone oil pipeline?  The senate blocked it........HERE is the article.

11 Democrat Senators voted with the Republicans ... Reuters says less about the bill itself and more about how Republicans will "use it".    The article includes "He (Obama)  took the unusual step of calling some senators personally ahead of the vote, asking them to reject the proposal."    It's only unusual for him, of course;  most presidents are known for calling senators to vote one way or the other.  Even Chris Matthews, huge Obama fan, whined rather recently that Obama doesn't have contact with Congress, not even calling senators before votes.  "took the unusual step"....another media lie.

Another line in the article says "Republicans are using the proposal to highlight Obama's delay of the project ahead of November presidential and congressional elections, linking his decision to rising gasoline prices."   As if Republicans think prices would have gone down next week had the proposal received a green light. you think we should start the pipeline?  Pros?  Cons?   Do you think Obama's only hesitance is environmental?

I am Mitt Romney

...and I'd like to address Z's readers here at geeeZ...I see you're mostly all bright and love America and some of you have major doubts about me.   Z said she wouldn't mind if I had my say, so here it goes:

Let me just get this out of the way:  I'm a pretty wealthy man.  Yes, my wife Ann has two Cadillacs, one at our East Coast home, and one at our West Coast home.   I've received some flack for that but wonder why.  Isn't it good to "buy American?"  And buy American twice?  What's the downside?  Why insult me for it?  And isn't it good to succeed in America?  I've worked hard, you work hard.  We need to get jobs going so we can ALL work hard and see the American cogs turning again...get us pumping oil, get our small businesses too busy to fill orders~  That is the America I think we can have again!

I'm also a Mormon,
so let's get by that as fast as we can so we can get down to what's really important in America.  I'm not running for Pastor in Chief.   Period.  My faith is my faith, yours is yours.  Enough said.  I respect most religions, if not all, and I happen to be a Mormon.  Sorry if you turn from me for that, but I can't help that.

Having said all that, let's get to the important stuff;   Something that's been said about me is that I have fired people as if I like to fire people.  What you need to know is I only fire those who don't deserve to be working at their job.  Firing anybody was never done out of caprice, it was out of sound business practice.  If I need you and you do your job, you're not getting fired.  Nobody should in that case. If someone likes firing people they need to be institutionalized. 

I was a governor of Massachusetts.  I was a Conservative who won in Massachusetts, imagine that?  Maybe I can with the national in November because of that.  I believe I did the right thing for Massachusetts and things went pretty well in that state.  Except for health care.

I am sorry for the health care program I signed into being in Massachusetts.  I'm sorry mostly because it was the springboard for the large, awful Obama Health Care Plan which I do not support.  Yes, you might say I screwed up in Massachusetts' health care and you  might be right.   That's the past, and this is now.   I don't want an Obama-like health insurance situation in America because nobody should be told what to do in regard to his health care. Or anything else, for that matter.   And, I think most Americans agree, at least from what I can see in the polls, that their health care will cost more if this plan goes into affect, and it'll be worse health care.  I'm against it.  You can condemn me for Massachusetts but that's in the past and I want to move on.    I don't call that flip flopping, I call that learning from mistakes and being man enough to admit it.

Rick and Newt are good acquaintances of mine and have been for some time.   I wish them well but they can't beat Obama.  Rick's values are excellent but they're being mischaracterized by a blood-smelling leftwing media and the American public sometimes listen to the media more than they listen to the words out of candidates' mouths.  Sad, but true.  The media will slaughter Santorum.   Newt's a nut.  He's the smartest guy in any room but he's got an ego the size of Georgia and has tons of plans but doesn't implement well.  I like both of their opinions and hope to make use of them in my White House, but none of us will get the White House out of Obama's hands unless they stand behind me and let me get elected.

I AM A REPUBLICAN but WHO CARES?   We need an AMERICAN who will stop the socialist creep that has been brought by our, well.........socialist creep, President Obama!  We need to move forward and not play PARTIES.  We need to choose someone who wants to bring America back to its senses;  not gut the military, not force anybody to do anything, not to apologize to our enemies, not stand in the way of businesses, not slam capitalism, not condemn people like the cops in Harvard before getting the facts, not letting Panthers who did intimidate voters go free, not building a racial or class divide in America, the country which developed and grew on the premise that there should be no divides!

Americans...listen to me, please!  You may not think much of me, but I think a lot of you and I'm counting on you to stop listening only to the mainstream media and start listening to all sides of every position and then deciding what to do.  We need better COMMUNITY, but not community organizers!  We need to respect Democrats like they haven't respected Republicans in 30 years, and educate them, remind them that this is a country built not on dependency, but INdependence.

America.......wise up.   I may not be your first pick, but I'm hoping you pick me and we can move on ....  beyond division, beyond anger, beyond Obama.

Thanks very much.

Z:  Think it would fly if he made a speech similar to this to the whole country and not just to my readers? (smile)  What might you add to that speech?

SOLAR ACTIVITY: Big sunspot AR1429 has unleashed another major flare--an X5-class eruption on March 7th at 00:28 UT.   As a result of the blast, a radiation storm is underway and a CME will likely hit Earth's magnetic field in a day or so. Geomagnetic storms are already in progress at high latitudes due to earlier eruptions from the active sunspot.  Last night, auroras were spotted over several northern-tier US states including Michigan and Wisconsin.  Check for updates and images.

Fluke is not quite a 'flook'...check this out;

Monday, March 5, 2012 - 7:35pm
Sandra Fluke is being sold by the left as something she's not. Namely a random co-Ed from Georgetown law who found herself mixed up in the latest front of the culture war who was simply looking to make sure needy women had access to birth control. That, of course, is not the case.
As many have already uncovered Sandra Fluke she is, in reality, a 30 year old long time liberal activist who enrolled at Georgetown with the express purpose of fighting for the school to pay for students' birth control. She has been pushing for mandated coverage of contraceptives at Georgetown for at least three years according to the Washington Post.
However, as I (Stephen Gutowski) discovered today, birth control is not all that Ms. Fluke believes private health insurance must cover. She also, apparently, believes that it is discrimination deserving of legal action if "gender reassignment" surgeries are not covered by employer provided health insurance. She makes these views clear in an article she co-edited with Karen Hu in the Georgetown Journal of Gender and the Law.
The title of the article, which can be purchased in full here, is Employment Discrimination Against LGBTQ Persons and was published in the Journal's 2011 Annual Review. I have posted a transcript of the section I will be quoting from here. In a subsection of the article entitled "Employment Discrimination in Provision of Employment Benefits" starting on page 635 of the review Sandra Fluke and her co-editor describe two forms of discrimination in benefits they believe LGBTQ individuals face in the work place:
"Discrimination typically takes two forms: first, direct discrimination limiting access to benefits specifically needed by LGBTQ persons, and secondly, the unavailability of family-related benefits to LGBTQ families."
Their "prime example" of the first form of discrimination? Not covering sex change operations:
"A prime example of direct discrimination is denying insurance coverage for medical needs of transgender persons physically transitioning to the other gender."
This so called "prime example" of discrimination is expounded on in a subsection titled "Gender Reassignment Medical Services" starting on page 636:
"Transgender persons wishing to undergo the gender reassignment process frequently face heterosexist employer health insurance policies that label the surgery as cosmetic or medically unnecessary and therefore uncovered."
To be clear, the argument here is that employers are engaging in discrimination against their employees who want them to pay for their sex changes because their "heterosexist" health insurance policies don't believe sex changes are medically necessary.
Additionally Sandra Fluke and her co-editor have an answer for why exactly these "heterosexist" insurance policies, and the courts that side with them, deem sex changes as medically unnecessary:
"In Mario v. P & C Food Markets, Inc., an employee who was denied such coverage brought claims under the federal Employee Retirement Income Security (ERISA) and Title VII. The court rejected the ERISA claim, finding the plaintiff's mastectomy and hormone therapy were not medically necessary. The court's ruling was based upon controversy within the medical community regarding that treatment plan. Much of that controversy has been linked to ignorance and bias against transgender persons, and the American Medical Association has declared the lack of coverage to be discrimination."
You see, all opposition to the determination that sex changes are medically necessary, and therefor must be covered by private employer provided health insurance, is based on "ignorance and bias against transgender persons".
The section on discrimination against those seeking gender reassignment ends with Sandra Fluke and her co-editor wondering why more lawsuits aren't filed against private employers on these grounds. Especially in comparison to the frequency with which these types of cases are filed against Medicare, Medicaid, and even the prison system:
"The reason for this lack of cases is unclear. Private employee insurance plans do not more frequently cover this need, so it may be a sign that transgender employees do not see the courts as likely to provide any assistance against private employers."
The argument made in this article edited by Sandra Fluke and Karen Hu is quite clear. "Gender reassignment" is a medically necessary set of procedures that must be covered under employee provided health insurance policies. If it is not covered by those policies that is tantamount to discrimination and legal action should be taken against the employer.
So, as you can see, Sandra Fluke is not what she is being sold as. Instead she is a liberal activist pushing some rather radical ideas. Keep that in mind as the left holds her up in the spotlight.
Z:  By the way, what kind of birth control costs any woman the $3000 Fluke said it did?   You're way.     This is all agenda, not helping women.  Women can get help at any clinic nearby.  This is about sanctioning the creepiest things around.     How do they DO this?  How do they find radical leftists making no sense, standing up for lies and exaggeration, AND WIN the debate?  


HERE, by the way, is an excellent adjunct article to the information a female graduate of Georgetown.  Important.
thanks, Mustang.

Netanyahu and AIPAC

Don't look now, Mr. Obama, but I THINK Mr. Netanyahu heard all you've had to say and appreciates your sanctions on Iran becoming even more tough than Bush's these last few years, and might have thanked you at the White House for all your promises..(thanked you for "we've got Israel's back," and "Iran's getting nukes is not an option,") but I think he just told AIPAC last night (text of the speech is in the link) that, basically, "This is the first time Israel's actually got the goods to stop Iran from getting nukes and WILL USE THEM."   

Did anybody here see Netanyahu's important speech to AIPAC? (only covered by FOX, not CNN or MSNBC, of course).  Ya, I think he told Obama to go fly a kite with the promises because, if push comes to shove, Isreal's "unlike any other time in history, now equipped to do it alone."

The Guardian article (first link above) suggests that this visit with Obama was mostly a win for Netanyahu because Palestine was barely mentioned in their talks.  Also, it suggests that America's got equipment like bunker busters that can take Iran's nuke sites out and Netanyahu's saying "you don't have to do it, just give us the busters and we will do it."

What do you think will happen?   Netanyahu talked about how some are more willing to wait for Iran to decide what to do than consider the safety of Israel and the rest of the world first.  That was pretty powerful.

Andrew Breitbart Blogs

I have the opportunity to save links to blogs which did posts memorializing Andrew Breitbart as the hero most of us know he was.   I was asked to save the links and I will be sending them to Susie Breitbart as soon as the dust has settled in her life.  Please don't send the general blog link, but click on the Breitbart post there and get me that link, okay?
You will be glad to know Susie's surrounded with many friends and family and is holding up very well, as are her children, with the help of the amazing Orson and Alley Bean and others.  (I'm prejudiced, of course)
PLEASE, if you did a post honoring Andrew, or some posts you think Susie should see, please, please link them here.   Your comments on my post on Andrew will be sent, as well..........Alley said she knows Susie will appreciate seeing them.

Thanks, everybody........let's make Susie Breitbart even more proud of her Andrew.  


What a way to start a week........

I want you all to give this video a look....if you're not into this kind of music, give it another two minutes and then click off....I have a hunch it'll pull you in and you'll want to watch more!  I sure did!

Here's the deal........this is from 1982, some of you won't even know most of the names of the singers or the shows, but most of us will, and BOY, was THIS ENTERTAINMENT AT ITS BEST!

Please....those of you who don't recognize much of it, please watch it and let us know how you liked it.  I'm really curious to see if it grabs those who are kind of new to this older entertainment style!    (this is not a true/false, multiple choice, and you will not be graded :-)

Thanks...and enjoy!    I think it's FABULOUS and I want to thank Pris for emailing it to me! I hope it starts your week with a smile on your face and a song in your heart!!

Sunday Faith Blog

Our friend and fellow blogger, Ticker, has a nice piece on FORGIVENESS at his site.  Please check it out.

"But love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them without expecting to get anything back.  Then your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High, because he is kind to the ungrateful and wicked.  Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful.
"Do not judge, and you will not be judged.  Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven.
"Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap.  For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you."   Luke 6: 35-38

Have you ever had a particularly difficult time with forgiving someone?  Or yourself?  How did you get over it?  We have to remember that even forgiving the terrible slights we're confronted with in politics, on this blog and others by commenters, etc., also fall under the advice of "forgive."    It's not so easy sometimes, is it.
