What Have We Done to Ourselves?

Or better yet, what have we allowed them to do to us?

Today, yet another senseless airline scare brought air-travel to a halt.

We turn a blind eye and allow them to feel-up nuns, frisk 5 years-olds and harrass disabled elderly travelers. We make ridiculous comments like “if it will keep us safe, then I’m all for it”. We pat ourselves on the back at what good citizens we are for tolerating government intrusion into our daily lives.

We are being beaten into submission.

Listen up people – your fellow American is not your enemy! Your knee-jerk, reactionary big-brother Federal Government is your enemy. Those who would rather inconvenience innocent American citizens under the guise of safety rather than address real issues are you enemies. Those who want you to live in fear and look upon your fellow man with suspicion are the real terrorists!

Unfortunately, this Sunday I have to subject myself to the indignity of air travel. God help me.

Remember when flying was kinda fun?

Watch Your Step

This is no longer a joke my friends. This crazy-looking woman scares the hell out of me.

White House Blog – Facts Are Stubbon Things

Please be sure to focus on the fifth paragraph:

There is a lot of disinformation about health insurance reform out there, spanning from control of personal finances to end of life care. These rumors often travel just below the surface via chain emails or through casual conversation. Since we can’t keep track of all of them here at the White House, we’re asking for your help. If you get an email or see something on the web about health insurance reform that seems fishy, send it to flag@whitehouse.gov.

I wonder how long it will be before the offices of Six Meat Buffet are stormed by the Obama Thought Police.

Flood Buyouts: Is This What We’ve Come To?

Following in the footsteps of hurricane Katrina victims, some residents of North Dakota are getting in line for a government hand-out.

Where’s our flood bailout?!

Good God people! I am sorry that you lost your home and I am sure it must be an absolutely horrible thing to go through. But why on Earth do you feel that the Federal Government should buy you out? Why on Earth would you WANT the Federal Government bail you out?

Can we divide the country up into idiots and non-idiots? That way, those of us who do not wish to associate with idiots can live in peace.

I’m speechless. I simply want to scream.

King Obama and the Court Jester

Just in case everyone has not yet had the opportunity to see this townhall fool in his King Obama t-shirt, I offer this video footage:

UPDATE (Preston): Via Gateway, we have the anti-Joe-the-Plumber, Henrietta Hughes:

Check out the “I Love You” lady at the end, who is nearly in tears to be so close to her Unicorn-riding fantasy savior. If this whole scene wasn’t so pathetic I would be able to laugh about it more.

Will the Obamessiah buy this woman a kitchen and a bathroom or will he call his good friend Ophrah and have her do it? Perhaps we’ll find out at the next Parade of the Horribles media event.

How Obama Got Elected

A great video from John Ziegler over on How Obama Got Elected.

By the way.. since John McCain is being the maverick that he is and drooling all over Obama’s undershorts, could someone please tell him that is this type of pants-down politics that cost him the election? Thanks.

UPDATE (Preston):

In case you think this video was just cherry-picking nitwits, check the stats that Zig put together:

Zogby Poll

512 Obama Voters 11/13/08-11/15/08 MOE +/- 4.4 points

97.1% High School Graduate or higher, 55% College Graduates

Results to 12 simple Multiple Choice Questions

57.4% could NOT correctly say which party controls congress (50/50 shot just by guessing)

81.8% could NOT correctly say Joe Biden quit a previous campaign because of plagiarism (25% chance by guessing)

82.6% could NOT correctly say that Barack Obama won his first election by getting opponents kicked off the ballot (25% chance by guessing)

88.4% could NOT correctly say that Obama said his policies would likely bankrupt the coal industry and make energy rates skyrocket (25% chance by guessing)

56.1% could NOT correctly say Obama started his political career at the home of two former members of the Weather Underground (25% chance by guessing).

And yet…..

Only 13.7% failed to identify Sarah Palin as the person on which their party spent $150,000 in clothes

Only 6.2% failed to identify Palin as the one with a pregnant teenage daughter

And 86.9 % thought that Palin said that she could see Russia from her “house,” even though that was Tina Fey who said that!!

Only 2.4% got at least 11 correct.

Only .5% got all of them correct. (And we “gave” one answer that was technically not Palin, but actually Tina Fey)

Again, it’s all in how the media frames the debate to guarantee their chosen one a victory. Of course, it doesn’t help that the GOP put up one of the worst candidates in history.

Election Day Reflections

Initially, I had planned to write about the comedy of errors put on by my polling location. However, it’s a rainy morning here in The OC and my mood is slightly more somber than anticipated. I can only assume that God (the real one, not Obama) is shedding tears over the tragic mistake our country is about to make.

On mornings like today, my mind cannot help but wander back 400 years when brave people left everything that had, boarded wooden ships and sailed across a great ocean to escape persecution and seek freedom. Think about that for a second. How many of us would be willing leave everything we have, board a ship and sail into the unknown in hope of a better life?

Sadly, many of us simply do not understand freedom nor the sacrifices made by so many to secure and maintain it. It’s something you heard about in history class and remembered it long enough just to pass a test. You heard it mentioned in stories that your grandfather used to tell but he was probably embelleshing a bit. I know you may stand up when the National Anthem plays, but do you really think about what it means? Or, do you just look around at others and wonder if their memory of the lyrics are worse than yours?

How often do you think of the terrified soldier landing at Omaha Beach fighting for freedom? How often do you think of the millions of Jews rounded up by their government and sent off to “re-education centers” whose freedom and lives were just brought to a screeching halt? Those are sad stories, but that happened a long time ago. Besides, this is America. It could never happen here, right?

Ladies and gentlemen, we are about to elect a radical extremist the likes of which we have never known. Because they do not understand freedom and sacrifice, so many are happily going to the polls to elect a man who is Hell-bent on destroying what is great about our country. A man who wants to re-write the definition of freedom. A man who’s Presidency will do more to create contempt and divide this country than any other in history.

Think about it long and hard before you vote today. Does Barack Obama and the ideals of the far-left really represent you?

The Passion of the African-American

On Tuesday, CNN was running this headline story regarding the passion of the “African-American” voter this fall.

If I understand this article correctly, a large percentage of the Black population supporting a Black (sorta) candidate primarily because of his skin color, can only be described as “passion”. The years of fighting the fight have finally paid off.

Some random observations…

I know that we say Obamessiah in jest, but according to Ollie James, an 84-year-old fellow from Missouri, Barry Obama truly is the Messiah sent directly from God in Heaven.

“I know he is going to win,” James said after services at Leonard Missionary Baptist Church in St. Louis. “See, God answers prayers, and I am a praying man, and I know he is going to win.”

Now Ollie appears old enough to remember when he first received his 40-acres and a mule, so perhaps we can simply attribute this comment to dementia.

Now on to facts that offend. Even though Barry has been photographed wearing a head towel, AND his middle name is Hussein, the Rev. Steven Thompson still finds a factual billboard offensive.

In the Missouri Ozarks, a roadside billboard shows a cartoon of Obama with a turban, his middle name “Hussein” in bold red letters. “If I spent my time getting angry about the things people do, then I can’t do what I effectively do here,” Thompson said as he gestured toward the pulpit. “Those people who do stuff like that, the only thing I can say is, we pray for them.”

Somehow I doubt we will ever see an article about white passion.

Do you know what a passionate white man is called?

A racist.

It appears that the word passion has been removed from the CNN article. Hmmm..

Oh Joe

Boy, has this been an interesting 12 hours! The Democrat response to Mrs. Palin’s speech has been a bubbling cauldron of emotions ranging from fear to forced condescension. Their high perches must be feeling none too comfortable after Governor Palin came out swinging.

I flipped over to CNN last night after the speech to hear Larry King and a collection of what appeared to be Democrat she-males, give their opinions on what they had just witnessed. Of course, they were all deeply offended at Mrs. Palin’s “smirk speech” and how anyone could dare think that she could possibly win-over Hillary Clinton supporters. More than once, they questioned how anyone could compare a “hick” governor to a woman of Hillary’s experience as if being a US Senator for 8 years qualifies you as the smartest woman in America.

Other commentators remarked on how the bar had been lowered to such a degree that anything other than a complete bust could only be viewed as a success for this obviously unqualified candidate.

While yelling at the television over their ongoing offensive and sexist commentary, I wondered aloud why this same attitude was never directed at other female candidates like Hillary Clinton. Mrs. TinyE summed it better than I ever could: because no one views Hilary Clinton as a woman. Amen.

And then there’s washed-up, old Joe Biden. He had all night to think about it and this is all he could come up with:

“I didn’t hear the phrase ‘middle class.’ I didn’t hear a single word about health care. I didn’t hear a single word about helping people get to college,” Biden, a U.S. senator from Delaware, told CNN’s “American Morning” Thursday.

Well, guess what Joe? I did quick scan of our Constitution this morning and I could not find those words either!

As it has been said before, a government big enough to give you everything you want is a government big enough to take everything you have.

Bigfoot for President

All of this Bigfoot talk of late reminded me of a wonderful show I once enjoyed on Saturday mornings when I was an even tinier TinyE: Bigfoot and Wildboy!

After watching this a few times, I am convinced that these two would make great nominees for President and VP. These guys could destroy Al Kida and his cousin Ben Laudin with their bare hands!

Happy Memorial Day

Never in the history of the world has any soldier sacrificed more for the freedom and liberty of total strangers than the American soldier. And, our soldiers don’t just give freedom abroad, they preserve it for us here at home.

For it has been said so truthfully that it is the soldier, not the reporter, who has given us the freedom of the press.

It is the soldier, not the poet, who has given us freedom of speech.

It is the soldier, not the agitator, who has given us the freedom to protest.

It is the soldier who salutes the flag, serves beneath the flag, whose coffin is draped by the flag who gives that protester the freedom to abuse and burn that flag.

We’re Still Waiting Nancy

While entering receipts into my financial software this week, I couldn’t help but pause at the high dollar amount we had spent on gas. Even though two years ago, Nancy Pelosi promised to reign in skyrocketing gas prices, I am still spending $50+ to fill up a Mazda 3.

With record gas prices, record CEO pay packages, and record oil company profits, Speaker Hastert and the Majority Congress continue to give the American people empty rhetoric rather than join Democrats who are working to lower gas prices now.

Yes, the classic line. I loved it and then and I still love it now: blame the rich guys. In Pelosi’s warped mind, J.R. Ewing and the boys are all hanging out at South Fork having a good laugh over cigars and martinis while wiping their asses with hard-earned dollars stolen from poor Americans. It wouldn’t surprise me to find an old “I love to hate J.R. Ewing” t-shirt tucked away in her closet.

Democrats have a commonsense plan to help bring down skyrocketing gas prices by cracking down on price gouging, rolling back the billions of dollars in taxpayer subsidies, tax breaks and royalty relief given to big oil and gas companies, and increasing production of alternative fuels.

Price-gouging was quite a charge for her to make. I suppose that we can make the assertion that price-gouging had increased under her watchful eye. Since prices have gone up considerably, can we also assume that the opposite of everything her common-sense plan promises has occurred during the Pelosi years?

As Mr. Holmes mentioned in a previous posting, neither side of the political spectrum has really put forth a real effort. However, House Witch Pelosi did such a fine job with injecting us with a little optimism, that it breaks my bitter little heart to see her fail on her promise.

Speak No Evil


What else is there to say when the city of Carpentersville, Illinois has taken it upon themselves to wipe their behinds with the Constitution and ticket those whose speech is found to be “disturbing”?

Livin’ on a Prayer

Boy, it’s non-stop excitement here in southern California’s bastion of wealth and excess. It seems that Bon Jovi rocker Richie Sambora cannot control his appetite for grandma’s cough (bad) medicine or underage girls as he was arrested for drunken driving last night in Laguna Beach (the “real” Orange County).

Wanted Dead or Alive

Ha! Does this guy look like the cool, rockin’ 80’s guitarist we remember so fondly or just some goofball who got too much sun on the beach?

The 49-year-old rock star, whose complete name is Richard Steven Sambora, was driving a black Hummer…

A gas-guzzling, air-polluting Hummer??? Wait a second! Aren’t Richie and the rest of the Bon Jovi crew some of Algore’s Concert-for-Climate-Change, Earth-love buddies? This can’t be accurate can it? I knew that he was a cowboy on the steel horse he rides, but the song never mentioned his world-class SUV.

…and was accompanied by three female companions, two of whom were minors…

Uh oh.. careful there Richie. You’ll end up in the slammer giving love a bad name. Perhaps they were just a couple of little runaways?

Race War

In the continuing battle of Arabs vs Jews, score one for the Jews. After perpetrating this savage bias crime against Rabbi Uria Ohana, 18-year-old Ali Hussein was struck by a car while stealing away with the Rabbi’s prized yarmulke.

I cannot help but think that this whole thing is a huge mistake. In actuality, I believe that the Rabbi was the victim of a chair to the back of the head by a former member of Devastation Incorporated who was crying out “Skandar Akhbar” in honor of the former kingpin.

Instead of prosecuting to the fullest extent of the law, he should be thanking his lucky kishka that he didn’t get the Camel Clutch.

Global Warming Religion

While snow cover in North America is at it’s highest level since 1966, here in Cow-wee-fornia the state Senate is proposing to mandate the inoculation of the global warming religion into our classrooms.

All I know is that I cannot get an accurate weather prediction from Dallas Raines anywhere beyond 2 hours before a storm and we are supposed to believe that this same science can be used to predict global climate change.

It doesn’t matter really. We all know the two who are really in charge!

If Obama Were President..

.. I would think that things such as this would never happen.

Obama’s New Recruit

You see, Obama is the candidate for change. Change means better education, better healthcare, and better pizza. Change also means that every young man, regardless of skill-level, should get a chance to play football at the college of his choice.

What would drive a young man to tell such an elaborate falsehood? Let me tell you. It’s the feelings of hopeless and despair brought on by the current administration that are driving young men and women to such desperate measures.

Come save us Obama!

Towelhead Hypocrisy

Last year, Sanjum Paul Singh Samagh was denied entrance to a local OC bar because he refused to remove his hair-conditioning wrap. The good news is that now after a boycott organzied by his classmates, the bar has changed it’s policy and Sanjum can now now freely boogie-down until the break of dawn with drunken, scantily-clad, women.

It’s not a fashion statement I’m trying to make,” Samagh recalled telling the owner at the time, explaining that his black cotton turban is worn for religious reasons.

My sacred head wrap adds to my charm..

Obviously, he’s religion is quite sacred to him and his dedication to his headdress is quite admirable. I don’t know much about Sikhism, but I wonder what the religion states about hanging around late-night drinking establishments trying to pick up on easy prey?
