Michelle Obama deserves Peace Prize, too!

Does Obama know who we are?

The cruelest, most violent Samurai in Japan decides he wants to become enlightened. He bursts into the home of an esteemed Zen Master and demands that the Master teach him how to become enlightened.The Zen Master looks deeply into his eyes and says, "No. You are a dirty, vicious Samurai. I will not teach you."Enraged, the Samurai yanks out his sword and places it right at the Zen Master's neck. He hollers, "Do you have any idea who I am? I am the cruelest Samurai in the world. I can … [Read more...]

The pictures from The Philippines are harrowing.Things sound terrible in Indonesia, so let us pray, particularly since more tremblors are expected and who knows what can happen in the Pacific.I know this is Friday, and therefore a non-political day for this blog, but in reading this report, I can't help but remember President Bush's response to the '04 Tsunami, how he immediately sent aid and naval vessels (and committed to long term relief to that area).And I remember some snotnose from … [Read more...]

Headline questions

Saddest headline in my email today: George W. Bush was the last American President.I'm in sort of a cranky mood, especially after getting this thing in my email a dozen times.

Note the line: "These are bad Americans, and they're putting our country at risk."Okay, I have questions.Oil … [Read more...]

9/11, Eight Years On

A longtime friend and blogger related feeling reluctant to write about 9/11 on this anniversary. "Everything just feels so tense and uncertain," this person wrote, "I'm having a hard time focusing on the anniversary, and hasn't everything that could be said about 9/11 been said?"I confessed to a similar feeling.

Miranda Rights for Terrorists & President Opposite

Over breakfast, my husband and I were discussing President Obama's Cairo speech, wherein he lectured the West about the freedom of Muslim women to wear the hijab (Obama called it a hajib; is either correct?), but said nothing about Muslim nations giving them the freedom to not wear the covering, if they choose."He speaks here about nations not having the right to tell other nations what to do," my husband mused, "but does precisely the opposite with regards to Israel; he's always telling … [Read more...]

Hobbit Houses, Worship, Misogynists & more
